We will be in Venice for 3 nights in mid-May, arriving at Marco Polo Airport on Sunday May 13th.
Our budget is unfortunately not over *USD* 150 a night; most hotels in Venice are far more expensive. So I am looking now at Mestre.
However, most posters seem to strongly recommend staying in Venice; are there any options that will fit our budget?
We need easy transport from the airport to the hotel as well as from hotel to Venice Santa Lucia station on the 16th morning ( when we are leaving for Florence).
I know that most hotels anywhere in Venice will have flights of stairs; does anyone know of places with elevators or rooms that can be accessed by just a few stairs?
