Finding the right hotel in Venice can really add to your experience in the “La Serenissima”. There are hotels with rooftop restaurants, pools, amazing views, and incredible rooms.

We’ll let you know what to expect from the hotel and if the area is good for you!
While this list most definitely includes Venice’s most expensive hotels it does not ONLY include the most expensive ones. We have four categories covered in this order:

The Best “Super Expensive” Hotels In Venice

Cipriani, a Belmond Hotel, Venice
5 Star | €€€€+ | Giudecca | Resort Luxury | Pool
A customer asked me to book them the Cipriani Hotel in Venice over a decade ago and I had not heard about it prior to then. It was when we first opened up as a company and I remember thinking, “Wow, I can’t believe places like this exist.”
The Cipriani is arguably the nicest hotel in Venice which is reflected in its price per night. You can spend over a thousand dollars for a standard room and use the hotel pool or pay a few thousand per night and have your own private soaking hot tub.
Stop a moment and think about what you’d do if you won the lottery, got an epic promotion, or sold your company. There is actually a good chance that what you envisioned was the Cipriani Hotel in Venice.
The Gritti Palace Venice
5 Star | €€€€+ | St Mark’s Square | Mega-Luxury | Rooftop Restaurant | Grand Canal
The design of the Gritti Palace is among the most stylish that I have ever seen in all my travels. Their use of color, design, and decor is matched by few. It is a gorgeous and beautifully decorated hotel that scoffs at the HGTV reclaimed wood look.
The secret? Hire an Italian interior designer and spend millions on bold designs that will stand the test of time. How else can you charge $800+ for a standard room? The answer is make every room anything else but standard.
The St. Regis Venice
5 Star | €€€€+ | St Mark’s Square | Contemporary | Grand Canal
St Regis is one of those hotels that you know is going to be nice no matter where it is, but Venice is especially nice. What Paris is for fashion, Venice is for luxury hotels and that is because the city has this timeless class. It really gives hotels the opportunity to stand out and the St. Regis property takes full advantage of that.
It sits right on the Grand Canal which allows you to soak in the sites and sounds of Venice. The rooms are more contemporary than you might imagine but subtle nuances make them feel very Venetian. That might be a Murano chandelier or old massive wood beams running across the ceiling of your suite.
The price is slightly more reasonable for a standard room but you get all the amenities of an uber-luxurious hotel.
5 Star | €€€€+ | St Mark’s Square | Classic Refinement | Grand Canal
Located just behind the Doge’s Palace in St. Mark’s Square, Hotel Danieli has an excellent location, beautiful views, and great access for all the bon vivants out there.
What does great access have to do with anything? When I got to Venice, I am going to spend a lot of time in the neighboring islands where there are tons of activities. Places like Murano or Giudecca which offer fewer crowds and cool activities.
I really like hotel Danieli because it has classy Venetian style coupled with great location. I personally am not going to eat near St. Mark’s Square, but I do love walking through the piazza or having a drink there in the late evening hours.

Baglioni Hotel Luna
5 Star | €€€€+ | St Mark’s Square | Classic Refinement | Grand Canal
If you have ever walked through St. Mark’s Square you likely walked past this iconic hotel without knowing it. I took a picture in front of their property with my wife since it is so scenic.
The property itself is fairly amazing. It maintains classic Venetian style but somehow looks fresh and new. Lots of light, great decor and incredible views.
The Best “Expensive” Hotels In Venice
The “Super Expensive” category is likely limited to venture capitalists, the founders of Facebook, Cristiano Rainaldo, Oil Tycoons, and lotto winner. That said, the “Expensive” category is possibly attainable for other more modest professions like doctors, lawyers, and astronauts.
“Expensive” Prices: While the prices of hotels change rapidly, expect these hotels to range from $300 to $450 per night for a range of rooms. That obviously will vary, so click the “Booking” link which will take you to Booking.com to see prices.
Sina Centurion Palace
5 Star | €€€ | Dorsoduro | Beautiful Architecture & Modern Design
The Sina Centurion Palace is one of my favorite properties in Venice for a romantic vacation. They do an amazing job mixing classic Venetian architecture with modern design and touches. There are multiple areas for dining and lots of amazing views. It is a fantastic way to stay at a very nice hotel at a reasonably expensive price.
Staying in Dorsoduro is also a treat. You will find yourself in a part of Venice that has much less foot traffic than St. Mark’s Square but amazing views. You can easily walk to the main areas of Venice and be in St. Mark’s within 20 minutes on foot.
Palazzo Venart Luxury Hotel
5 Star | €€€ | Grand Canal | Great Location | Courtyard
I wish I could make it easy to pick a great hotel in Venice but there are too many amazing choices. Palazzo Venart is a super-luxurious hotel designed in what I would call a “Venetian Great Gatsby” style.
I would not look out of place if George Clooney pulled up on his boat to have lunch since the property is so visually appealing. They also have a 2 Michelin Star restaurant on premises!
Hilton Molino Stucky Venice
€€€ | Giudecca | Rooftop Pool | Family Friendly
The Hilton Molino Stucky is right up my alley. First of all, I do not want to and cannot spend $400+ per night on a hotel room. It just isn’t my thing. Second, I love a good rooftop pool and the Molino Stucky gives you a “baller” luxury experience for less than you’d pay at other comparable hotels.
I also love that this hotel is in Giudecca which is not part of the main island cluster of Venice. The hotel has a private taxi that is free to hotel guests to and from St. Mark’s Square which makes staying here a solid option. This is a super tempting option when visiting Venice with a romantic partner or with the family. Basically, great for any type of traveler willing to spend a few hundred dollars per night on a room!
Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo
4 Star | €€€ | Chic | Rialto Bridge | Grand Canal
Palazzo Barbarigo is a very chic and cool hotel on Grand Canal right in the core of Venice. You can access all of Venice’s best districts foot such as Dorsoduro, St. Mark’s, and Cannaregio. A great option at a great price for a luxurious and romantic stay in Venice!
5 Star | €€€ | San Marco | Gaudy Luxury
Palazzina Grassi is an amazingly gaudy (which I am a fan of) and luxurious hotel in the San Marco district which makes it pretty central. Prices are extremely reasonable given the size of the rooms, decor, and general beauty of the hotel. It is in a more “local” area of San Marco because it is not terribly close to St. Mark’s Square nor the Rialto bridge so the “tourist paths” don’t cross this section.
If you want luxury and style it is an excellent choice in the mid-300s. You’ll also be in a very central part of Venice that has a local feel.
5 Star | €€€ | Amazing Decor | St Mark’s Square
Hotel Metropole makes you feel like you have been invited to Venice by the Doge (Duke) of Venice in 1674 who put you up in his guest residence. It is so opulent and nice that it is hard to pass up on. Its location is also ideal as well. It is on the far side of St. Mark’s Square near the Castello neighborhood which overs a nice park and local dining.
It is also a quick ferry away from San Giorgio Maggiore Island and Giudecca which are both cool “off-the-beaten-path” islands that I recommend exploring on a multi-day trip to Venice.

5 Star | €€€ | Grand Canal | Sophisticated | Rooftop
I like the Bauer hotel for many reasons but most of all are that it is a beautiful and expansive luxury hotel at fairly reasonable prices, at least in 2022. The building looks like something built by the Medici (it’s not) with a Venetian flair. The location is practically in St Mark’s with a hint of privacy which I appreciate. You can also see Punta della Dogana from their rooftop and many of the rooms which is a beautiful site.
The Best “Mid-Range Lux” Hotels In Venice
These rooms will start looking more and more obtainable but they are definitely not cheap. Venice, in general, is not an expensive city, but the hotels often leave you wondering what you spent your money on. This category will include comfortable nice accommodation that is anything but cheap yet still will make you feel good about your hotel.
“Mid-Range Lux” Prices: While the prices of hotels change rapidly, expect these hotels to range from $200 to $300 per night for a standard room. That obviously will vary, so click the “Booking” link which will take you to Booking.com to see prices.
Palazzo Morosini Degli Spezieri
Apartments/Suites | €€€ | San Paolo | Side Canal | Family Friendly
I really like this location. Basically it is a building full of beautifully furnished apartments in Venice. Every unit has a dishwasher, oven, and other basic kitchen appliances.
Many units have balconies, living rooms, and even multiple bedrooms. This is likely where you’d find me staying if I was traveling with my wife and kids. It is perfect for families or groups that appreciate some independence.
Ca Maria Adele
4 Star | €€€ | Dorsoduro | Venetian Opulence | Side Canal
Ca Maria Adele is an interesting choice for any visitor to Venice due to its location. It is on the very tip of the Dorsoduro neighborhood which is a very “local” neighborhood with great dining options. You are also practically connected with Punta della Dogana which is an iconic and historic structure in Venice.
You can easily get over to Giudecca and San Giorgio islands which makes for cool adventures. In Venice, booking a hotel is a lot about the hotel but also about not walking out to crowds of people. You’ll definitely see crowds, but if you position yourself correctly sometimes you’ll walk out to empty streets and feel great! Hotel Ca Maria Adele is one of those places!
Hotel Ca’ Pisani
4 Star | €€ | Dorsoduro | Deco Design
I really like the location of Hotel Ca’ Pisani which is in Dorsoduro right over the Ponte della Accademia. You’ve got great access to St. Mark’s for nighttime cocktails but you’re in a really local area with good restaurants. I also, which you may have noticed by now, really appreciate the quick access to Giudecca and San Giorgio island with the vaporetto.
Ca’ Pisani is priced reasonably in the summer fo 2022 for what you are getting which makes it an easy “point and click” type decision. No worries on this one – go for it!
Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal
4 Star | €€€ | St. Mark’s Square | Grand Canal
Great location near St. Mark’s and priced. This is an excellent hotel at decent prices, especially with Grand Canal views.
3 Star | €€€ | St. Mark’s Square
Hotel Flora is a good 3-star hotel in a nice area. Their prices for 2022 are ok which means a little high given the current situation but the hotel has decent-sized rooms and a cool layout. I do like their courtyard which is fun for kids. I can imagine eating breakfast there while the kids run around and play with the fountain.
Hotel Palazzo Paruta
4 Star | €€€ | Suites | Side-Canal
Palazzo Paruta is a pretty cool hotel IF you shoot for an “above standard” room typology. This is the rule of thumb in most European hotels. If you are staying at a Marriott in Florida you’ll simply get a slightly larger room with possibly a view when you upgrade. In Venice you will get better room decor, better views, more space and cooler bathrooms. It almost always pays to go a notch or two higher in Venice and Hotel Palazzo Paruta is one of those places where you won’t regret paying a few shekels extra.
The Best “Low-Cost” Hotels In Venice
I, unfortunately, can’t recommend a “crappy” hotel which tends to be the cheapest. That said, I have a few go-to options in Venice which are inexpensive and clean. Don’t expect much, but if you a “no-frills” type person or have a tight budget then it will due.
“Low-Cost” Prices: While the prices of hotels change rapidly, expect these hotels to range from $125 to $200 per night for standard rooms – $200 may not sound cheap, but welcome to Venice.
Pricing will obviously vary, so click the “Booking” link which will take you to Booking.com to see prices. If you want even cheaper, you can also go to Booking.com and look for the cheapest hotels in the center.
4 Star | €€ | Pool | Cannaregio | Family Friendly
Boutique-style hotel with comfortable amenities and a small pool in the courtyard! Great place for families with kids!
Popular Venice Tours
4 Star | €€ | Courtyard | Family Friendly
Quaint hotel in Cannaregio with everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay in Venice. The area is a bit off the beaten path which affords you some of Venice’s more local restaurants.
Casin dei Spiriti
Apartments | €€ | Modern | Cannaregio
Really chic apartments in Cannaregio are perfect for groups traveling together or families.
These apartments are modern and cool at a great price, but quite far by foot to the main attractions like St. Mark’s Square.
Youth Hostel | € | Industrial | Giudecca
If you want a cheap bed in a cool atmosphere that allows you to meet other young travelers, this is it.
While this is definitely your best bet for backpackers, be aware that you are in Giudecca which is not mainland Venice. I think this is a benefit, but you will pay a pretty penny for the Vaporetto to get back and forth to mainland Venice.
That said, you will likely spend your nights partying at the hostel so don’t worry too much. Side note, I stayed at the Generator Hotel in London my FIRST night ever in Europe with my brother, Rich. My hostel experiences when downhill from there.
