Three & Four Star Hotels in Venice Italy

Where to stay in Venice ? I have selected a handful of the best three and four star hotels in Venice Italy... and a boat!

Considering the small size of the city there are probably more hotels per square foot in Venice than anywhere else on earth. The bad news is that most are overpriced and many offer poor service.

That's why I have so few 3 and 4 star hotels on my site. I only feature hotels I know personally and that I've loved.

I know you want your time in Venice to be special so it's essential to find a great hotel that won't cost a fortune.

I'm confident these hotels will help to make your stay in Venice unforgettable...

The Best 3 Star Hotels in Venice Italy

Locanda Poste Vecie

View over Rialto Venice

This summer we decided to add another hotel to our selection. We visited lots but none were good enough. Then we decided to give this one a try based on a number of emails from site visitors . Wow...we loved it! Here's our review and photos.

Hotel Abbazia in Cannaregio

Hotel Abbazia in Cannaregio

Housed in what was once an ancient Abbey. The Hotel Abbazia is a warm, friendly hotel and well situated too. Most of the staff speak fluent English and are always full of smiles, which is not always the case in Venice. For more reviews and booking details click here.

Hotel dell'Opera

Hotel dell'Opera

A relatively new Hotel but this could well be the best choice when it comes to three star hotels in Venice. Perhaps it is the newness, or the high standard of furniture and service, but it really felt more like a four star hotel to me. The location is superb too – only a few minutes walk from St. Marks Square. It seems I am not alone in loving this hotel, the reviews on Booking.com rate it as absolutely fabulous.

La Locanda di Orsaria

La Locanda di Orsaria

Good location, great breakfasts and spotlessly clean rooms. The Locanda di Orsario is not very big, and is too small to be rated as a hotel, but it is a great choice and rates are very reasonable. I don't know about you, but I often prefer smaller and friendlier places anyway and this is ideal.  Owner Pietro and his family are sure to make your stay in Venice special.

The Best 4 Star Hotels in Venice

Foscari Palace in Cannaregio

Foscari Palace Hotel in Venice Italy - view

Once the home of 16th century nobility but now a really excellent four star hotel. Everything is right about this hotel and the price is that of a three star hotel. I don’t know why they charge these rates in Venice when most others charge exorbitant prices but I hope it stays like this. For more reviews and booking details click here.

Hotel Concordia

Hotel Concordia Venice

I'd stay here just for the view from the breakfast table. I mean look at that view! Ask for a superior room, with a view of the square, and you'll be in heaven.  Other reasons to stay here? Well the location on the doorstep of St Mark's is unbeatable and I've always been greeted with big warm smiles from the baggage guy through to Guliano the concierge.  Find out more about the Concordia here.

Palazzo Stern in Dorsoduro

Palazzo Stern in Dorsoduro

Good hotel with one of the only and one of best bacon and egg breakfasts in Venice (you'd be amazed at how many people write to me to complain about only getting offered pastries for breakfast). The hotel has some of the biggest rooms in the city too, most overlook the Grand Canal but if you really want a great view try the Jacuzzi on the rooftop terrace. For more reviews and booking details click here.

Venice with a Difference

Venice Timeshares

Venice Timeshare

Timeshares in Venice are affordable luxury condos that are located right in the heart of the city. They can be found within 3, 4, and 5 star resorts which have exquisite amenities and access to all the most popular points of interest like the Bell Tower of St. Mark, Rialto Bridge, and the Museums of Mark’s Square.

Get a taste of the city with nearby restaurants like Antico Martini, Do Loeni or indulge yourself in the fabulous nightlife with late-night drinking at the Spritz.

A site called SellMyTimeshareNow.com offers weekly Venice timeshare rentals and resales at such resorts as Perle Veneziane, Hotel Palazzo del Giglio, and Gioielli del Doge, all recognized for their excellence.  For more information and booking details please click here.
