Mid Range Hotels

Hotel al Sole

This three star hotel is in a surprisingly grand building in a good location for both discovering Venice and for arriving to and from the bus station.  The setting by the canal (rio del Gaffaro) is picturesque and tranquil.  Rooms are what you would expect from a well run three star hotel.  The superior rooms are worth the extra for the additional space. There is a garden (a rarity in Venice) where breakfast can be had in warmer weather.
