Planning to be in Venice as part of a two month trek around the Mediterraen. Will be in Venice in mid May for a week and am looking for a single room with private bath. Any suggestions?

Hiya,

If you dont mind not booking ahead, then the accommodation service at Venice train station gave us a great recommendation for a clean, relatively inexpensive hotel which was well located. Have no idea of the name of it because it was 5 year ago! but I remember we paid something like 70euro for two of us and that included a continental breakfast. You might find in a lot of venetian hotels (italian hotels in general) that the private bathroom is situated down the hall even though it is solely for your use. :)

Venice is very expensive and most of the sites can be seen in a day or two. 3 days is a lot of time for Venice. I feel that you might get a bit bored with Venice if you stay there for a whole week.

So consider moving on after a few days to a cheaper place more inland.

May is the main tourist season in Italy, expect prices to skyrocket and hotel rooms to be in high demand. Labours Day (May 1st) Pentecoast (27th and 28th of May) and Ascent (17th May) are major holidays in Germany and other countries in Europe. Children have schoolholidays around these dates. Many people thus take 1 week trips to Italy during this time, because the weather is spectacular - warm enough for a dip in the Med but not hot yet.

Better book or reserve rooms now. Consider to stay in Mestre, the industrial inland "sister" of the tourist Venice, because it is cheaper there and easy to commute.

Another suggestion is hotel rossi, close to the train station. I book it for this April travel and the rate is decent (92 eur for 2), or 53 eur for one. I'll let u know how it is after I get back but the reviews on tripadvisor are fairly good.

Uhm, wait, no, May is not the main tourist season in Italy, nor in Venice: it's like "mid" season.
There are already many tourists in Venice, that's true, but here in Italy in May only Labour Day is holiday, Pentecoast and Ascent are not. So, May is really one of the best moment to go to Venice.
That said, I agree that most hotels in Venice are very expensive. If I can suggest some names, I'd go for Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo or Hotel Antiche Figure (even in Tripadvisor they get very good reviews).
Just another note: a week in Venice can be a lot, but from Venice you can easily visit Treviso (small, very cute, good cuisine!) and Padua (Giotto's frescoes), both by train and both worth a visit.

Ciao!
