Cozy, old-fashioned family-run hotel just 5 minutes from Piazza San Marco. Rooms are simply but attractively furnished with richly woven rugs and carpets, marble floors and some of the original wood beams exposed (some come with a terrace, while the family suites are good value for groups). Bathrooms are relatively big, and the air-conditioning a welcome bonus in the summer, but there are no elevators, so be prepared if you get a higher floor. Outside of peak months (July, Sept), Piave is exceptionally good value, given its proximity to the piazza.
