Maybe around 200 euros per room - not sure how expensive the accom is there. 2 of us are sharing cost the other is paying by herself and I am mindful of that. Don't expect to spend much time in room as only there 2 nights so it doesn't have to be palacial just clean and comfy and a lift would be handy.

200E for a room on the Grand Canal is pretty low. Perhaps a small canal instead? We thought it would be fun to have a canal view on our last visit, but found it very noisey ... day and night.

Did you look at the hotel info under " Venice Hotels " at the top left corner of this page? Search by Map in order to drill down on a specific area. You can also specify your budget.

This link provides a map of hotels near the train station:

Thanks for the tip off re the noise, will take it into consideration. Had thought a small canal. May have found a link offering 2 BR apartments which would be better for us.

Hi Cam

We just got back from the Hotel Papadopoli on the Tolentini Canal, about 5-10 minutes walk from the station. It was about 200e per night, and an absolute cracker. It's an Mgallery run by Accor (www.accor.com).

Have a great trip

Just to be clear.... It's a cracker is good or bad? Do you think it's worth having a canal view? What is the best location, central like this, near San Marco, north of the canal, west, east?

A "cracker" is Aussie and Kiwi slang for good so an "absolute cracker" is something very special LOL.

Thanks for the translation, Foxy. Sometimes I forget there's a whole other world up there in the northern hemisphere. lol

As for a canal view being worth it... of course. Some of the best moments of my recent visit to Venice were spent on the balcony of our hotel room at the end of a long day, watching the hustle and bustle down below along each side of the canal. The alleys on their own just aren't enough.

As for location, My money's on somewhere near the station, for the simple fact that you can get yourself set up straight away, and then head out and explore the city. The boats and bridges are wonderful, but you'll quickly come to hate them haulling heavy suitcases.

All the best
