Looking for the best hotels in Venice? Made up of 117 small islands linked by 400 bridges, this city feels more like a fairytale than a modern European metropolis. Romantic and classic to its core, Venice boasts hotels that err on the side of opulence and are stuffed with antiques that recall the city’s heyday as a well-to-do independent republic during the Renaissance.
Luckily, this Old-World city also has a few modern retreats tucked away along its canals, as well as discrete country homes and family-run pensione a short vaporetto ride from the major attractions and museums. Of course, there are also budget-busting options for those hoping to book a stay like true Italian aristocracy (as well as budget-friendly, cheap hotel options). Regardless of the style, with only so much space and serious restrictions on any new construction, accommodation in La Serenissima is at a serious premium and should be booked as far in advance as possible. Here are some of the best hotels to help you decide where to stay in Venice.
