Now, Al Gazzetino is a no frills approach to staying in Venice. It is centrally located between Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco. It is clean and they offer private bathrooms. They have few amenities, but they conviently have a restaurant downstairs.

Some negatives are that there is no air conditioning and no elevator. We got a room on the top floor, three flights of stairs up. They lock the doors at night and if you want out, you have to wait for the doorman. He's not always up and if you want to leave early in the morning, you have to wake him.

I advise you to book with www.venere.com. I found that website offers the best prices for hotels as compared to others that I tried.

Unique Qualities: Quaint and clean. A deal considering the high prices in Venice for lodging. It is in a great location.

One thing I learned about Venice was that there are many places that you can stay in Venice that don't have to be near Piazza San Marco or Rialto Bridge. Places near the two major sites usually become booked quickly, so book as early as possible. But Venice is easily walkable, so don't worry if you can't find a place near San Marco or Rialto Bridge.

Address: San Marco 4971 - 30124 Venice
Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Take Vaporetto to Rialto or San Marco. From Rialto head towards San Marco and from San Marco head towards Rialto. Al Gazzettino is midway between the two.
