The 51-room, upscale Savoia & Jolanda Hotel is an elegant and traditionally styled property that is spread over two buildings -- one overlooking a waterfront promenade, the other a piazza and pretty church. A buffet breakfast of hot and cold items is included, and guests can dine on a terrace overlooking the canal -- the restaurant opens to non-guests, as well, for lunch and dinner. Interiors are typically classical Venetian and all rooms are air-conditioned with marble-finished bathrooms. While suites have superb views over the water, noise from the restaurants and street can also be an issue. The central location near St. Mark's Square and lagoon-front setting bump up the rates a little -- but it's still one of the cheaper options in the area. Trip Advisor says 50 rooms but all other sites say 51.
