Top 5 Budget Hotels in Venice

Venice is a beautiful city that you should visit at least once. The fabulous churches and palaces reflect hundreds of years of history and the water canals fill the city with romance.

Venice has its own airport, which is located only 20 minutes away from the center of the city. When it comes to Venice airport transfers you have two main options: on water or land, depending where your hotel is.

Despite other famous cities in the world, Venice can also be visited on a budget. There are many affordable hotels that you can choose from, especially if you go in the off-season.


Venissa is located on the rural island of Mazzorbo, half an hour ride with the ferry from the main touristic attractions. The hotel is, in fact, a recently restored farm building, that will keep you away from the tumult of the city. All rooms offer a wonderful view and are fitted with pieces of antique Venetian furniture. The hotel offers two room options: Ostello, with shared bathroom and cotton towels, and Comfort, with private bathroom, linen sheets, luxurious bath products, WiFi and flat-screen TV. Prices start at €35.
