My wife & I are visiting, Venice 1 night, Portofino 2nights, Amalfi Coast 3 nights, Rome 2 nights.
Can anyone recommend good places to stay on a medium budget or any websites to visit that would help.

Hi for amalfi you can find some places here

For venice check this is quite expensive but in venice is hard to find cheap pleace
this one could be also good but i don't know prices

Any way if i can suggest you if you find some place outside could be really cheaper but venice is really good also by night so up to you if prefer spend less go outside if you want to live the beautiful of venice also by night stay there.

Portofino is really vip area and the town is really small i don't think you can get b&b there but somewhere there around may be you can find i give you a link but write them and ask prices and distances

Good trip

My husband and I went to Rome last fall. We stayed at the Albergo del Senato. The web site is:
We discovered the hotel from this web site: is an unbiased site like this one, and every single review of the hotel we stayed at (53 out of 53 at the time) raved about the hotel. It is a 3-star hotel, but really should be a 4-star. The location was perfect - within walking distance to everything as it was right in the city center and the Pantheon was literally right outside our door. We paid 240 euros per night. I'm not sure what your budget is, but there was another hotel right within the Piazza della Rotunda that was less expensive.

We were in Rome for 10 days, except for a 2-day stint to Sulmona, and we have both agreed we wouldn't have wanted to stay in any other area. Albergo del Senato has an open, roof-top bar overlooking the entire city and our room was very large (much, much bigger than we expected), ultra clean, marble bathrooms, etc. We planned the trip ourselves and just trusted the info from It is a great site to check out and will probably help you as well with the other cities you're looking at, and it gives helpful little detailed maps that breaks each region into zones.

I just tried to find that other hotel on and I think it was called Abruzzi?? Anyway, I see the Albergo del Senato is now up to 151 out of 151 good reviews. We would not stay anywhere else if we go back. Ohh...I'm so jealous and wish we were!!!

By the way, we had tried to book right through the web site after doing our research but was told there was no vacancy, so we went to their site directly, booked our room and got a better rate.

And one more thing, I'm not sure when you're going, but we were there last fall around the beginning of October and I was surprised at how hot and humid it was. I had packed for slightly cooler weather. Oh well - had a great time anyway!

Good luck and have fun!!!

You could try -snip---

The accommodations they list are not just hostels but medium priced budget hotels as well.

Also, if you're travelling by train you will normally find cheap hotels near train stations.

Hi Jason,

Have you tried the accommodation link at the top of the page? Incidentally, it lists the same hotels/ hostels as the one that travelnote mentioned (plus a some good lastminute deals on top of that). I usually check for some reviews of hotels, but that doesn't include many hostels, so isn't always as useful.

Cheers, Peter
