Venice Hotel Accommodation Guide
|Hotel Location:||Cannaregio||Castello||Dorsoduro||San Marco|
|San Polo||Santa Croce||Lido||Giudecca|
You can get anywhere in Venice by foot or Vaporetto pretty quickly. So apart from getting your luggage to and from your hotel on arrival and departure (see our Arriving and Departing page) distances are not a huge deal. What is a huge deal in Venice is the number of bridges you may have to cross over to get to your hotel. If you have huge cases or a few pieces of luggage, do check to see how many bridges you would have to cross before booking your hotel.
Venice itself is divided into the following districts (called “sestieri”): San Marco, Dorsoduro, San Polo, Santa Croce, Cannaregio, Castello. But you can also stay on the Lido, just a short ferry ride away from Piazza San Marco across the lagoon. Giudecca is an island close to Dorsoduro, but you probably won’t be staying there unless you’re at the Hotel Cipriani or the Hilton Molino Stucky Venice, in which case I’m envious! We did however stay at the Bauer Palladio Hotel & Spa on our last trip and it was excellent.
For early morning bus trips to the airport, hotels near Piazzale Roma in San Croce would be more convenient.
