Budget hotels need not leave you in an uncomfortable situation. Take a look at our curated list of top budget hotels that’ll spare your wallet.

Venice is legendary. You probably don’t need me to describe one of the most well-known cities in the world for you. Just saying “Venice” will probably conjure up images of beautiful canals, bridges, charming alleyways and gondolas.

The city of Venice is built on a lagoon, which is made up of 118 little islands all connected through canals, walkways, and bridges. Over 50,000 people reside in the historic city of Venice. Since Venice is a legendary city, it gets a fair share of tourists, and if you’re visiting Italy you’ll definitely want to experience Venice. But since Venice is a very tourist-centric city, prices can be a little steep. Luckily I’m here to help you figure where to stay in Venice without having to break the bank.

Read on to find out about the best budget hotels in Venice, Italy.

Tip from tour guide

Calle de L’anconeta

Calle de L’anconeta, named after a Holy Mary image that was brought to the nearby Anconeta oratory, is only 550 m (1,804.46 ft) from this hotel and definitely worth your attention. The name of the region is a blend of "eikòn," which is Greek for "image," and "ancona," where "anconeta" is derived from. Nestled between the wider Calle del Pistor and Campiello dell’Anconeta, its narrowness is linked to the chief engineer's refusal to demolish the street where he resided. Make sure to capture snapshots and delve into the intriguing history of this slender yet storied street.
