Previously we stayed at The Bauer, and Palazzo Sant'Angelo - good quality hotels close to the tourist hubbub of Piazza San Marco and Rialto Bridge.
Roll forward to our recent budget stay at Hotel Pausania - an all in BA deal at a really low price. The hotel is ten minutes walk from Piazzale Roma (for airport bus or cab), ten minutes from the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, ten minutes from the Accademia gallery with its bridge across the Grand Canal to San Marco, and ten minutes from the cafes along The Zattere.
You don't need a water bus or water taxi, as all you might want is within easy reach. Hotel Pausania is in the University area of Dorsoduro with a vibrant bar/café buzz on your doorstep and Venice Jazz Club almost opposite. To travel further afield Ca Rezzonico Vaporetto stop is a few hundred yards away.
The hotel itself is I think an architectural one-off - a lot of fascinating details. The proprietors couldn't have been more helpful - gave us two keys to make our own room choice. We turned down the cherub frescoed ceiling, and opted for a good sized attic room with three windows and a newly furbished bathroom.
Breakfast was an adequate contintental, and the hotel didn't stint on heating - we had to turn it back down each time we returned to our room.
All in all an excellent stay.
