The Best Recommended Hotels in Venice for your next trip in Italy

Best Hotels in Venice

Venice is a destination many travellers want to go at least once in their lives, even considering all of the news about over-tourism. As much crowded as it is, might be worth it to get la crème de la crème of hotels when you are in town.

Venice is full of options from classic hotels hidden around St. Mark’s square, along the Grand Canal to the west and on the Riva Degli Schiavoni to the east. In the city itself, you will find backpacker hostels to Bed & Breakfasts and many other AirBnB options. If you want a famous canal view, it will cost you extra bucks, but that could mean anything from a grandiose view of the Grand Canal to a not-so-much glamourous mosquito-infested backwater so it’s important to do your research quite well. Here are our top choices for your next visit to Venice and do let us know in the comments section your own recommendations and why you liked it!

Aman Venice

Fidele to Aman Hotels, the property has only 24 bedrooms, which have been slotted into the Palazzo Papadopoli’s original spaces hence the uniqueness of each room. Enjoy a very rare garden right by the edge of Canal Grande of Venice. Venetian aristocracy, the current count and countess Giberto and Bianca still live here with their children in a sprawling apartment at the top of the building. That’s how special this location is!

JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa

For a more secluded experience, you can go across the lagoon in a water taxi and dock on Isola Delle Rose, JW Marriott Venice’s private island. It has 266 rooms and suites, our favourite being villas with their own private pools and private gardens. For an experience far from the crowds, and dear Venice is surely very crowded, this beautiful property may be the place for you.

Generator Venice

It would be rude to not mention this Generator Hostel, a gem for those who are looking to enjoy Venice whilst staying in a much more budget option than our favourite hotels above. Comfort, clean and as hospitable than other places, if your wallet can’t handle it, this might be your winning option!
