  1. The Antony Hotel is a modern, mid-range property located on the outskirts of Mestre, between the city of Venice and the Marco Polo Airport. Most guest rooms have been refurbished, and some have pretty views of Venice. The hotel serves a well-stocked buffet breakfast with cereals, fruit, meats, cheeses, pastries, and some hot items along with juices and coffee. Dinner is also available at the restaurant, which gets good reviews from past guests. There are also indoor and outdoor play areas for children, with babysitting available.

  2. The Best Western Bologna Hotel - Mestre Station is a renovated and modern mid-sized chain hotel. The location in Mestre is directly across the street from a train station bringing passengers into Venice in under 10 minutes. This upper-middle-range property attracts tourists who want to spend the day in Venice but avoid the high hotel costs on the island itself. There isn't much reason to stay in this neighborhood other than the fast access to the canals of Venice. The hotel has a casual restaurant, Da Tura, and free Wi-Fi.

  3. The Luna Hotel Baglioni is a luxury chain hotel with 104 rooms located less than a two-minute walk from the shops, restaurants, and architecture of Saint Mark’s Square. The classic hotel delivers a high level of service in a beautiful setting. Canova, an award-winning restaurant serving Italian and international cuisine, is on-site along with a café and full bar; plastic bowls featuring cartoon characters are a nice touch for the kids. Rooms are beautifully decorated in soft colors; there are suites available with varying features like gray marble bathrooms, handmade Versailles parquet flooring, and private terraces.

  4. Located a five-minute walk from Saint Mark’s Square, the 15-room Hotel Al Piave offers couples and families a cozy and reasonably priced Venice vacation. Studios and Family Suites offer sitting areas/rooms and kitchenettes. The three apartments are in a separate building down the street and have living rooms, sofa beds, kitchens with dishwashers, washing machines, and DVD players.

  5. A 40-room family-run boutique near Piazza San Marco, Hotel Flora is a quiet escape in central Venice. A quality breakfast is served in the beautiful interior garden during the warm months, and guests can also bring drinks from the bar into the garden during the evening. Rooms are quaint and clean with free Wi-Fi, but some rooms are on the dark side (as is often typical in Venice). Upgrading to the deluxe suite gets significantly more space and polish.

  6. The Hotel Al Duca di Venezia offers a quiet retreat that’s hidden from the bustling Venice tourist areas. The 13-room hotel features traditional Venetian decor, exposed wooden ceiling beams, and a comfy lounge with an Internet corner. There's also a stylish, classically decorated bar and breakfast room where a free buffet breakfast is served every morning. Rooms and apartments are decorated with lavish Venetian furnishings and flat-screen TVs (and some have patios), but taller guests should note that rooms on the top floor have slanted, low-hanging ceilings.

  7. The 48-room Best Western Montecarlo is a comfy, budget-friendly hotel close to the Piazza San Marco. Classic antique-inspired furnishings (that border on being just plain dated) and flat-screen TVs fill small, yet cozy rooms on a busy street. The hotel features a cozy bar, a buffet breakfast room with traditional furnishings, and a TV room with an Internet corner, but space in common areas is limited and can feel cramped
