Subject: Re: Hotel Il Burchiello
I passed by last October and it looked uglier than I remembered, scorched paint and looking abandoned, so you really need to force yourself to go in. Just a comment: there are cheap hotels even in Venice, providing you don't mind the view (or the absence of it). Just ask the booking office at the railway station and you can find them. Another way is to sleep in Mestre, Venice's mainland borough, where you can find many little hotels and pensions. No websites, of course, but low prices.
