Right across from the beach, this Hotel is a great place to stay. The room we stayed in was large and we had our own balcony facing the water. The breakfast was extensive (so much food!). My husband is a coeliac and gluten-free food was not a problem. Staff very friendly and willing to please. Hotel very central to everything,... More

I agree with previous reviewers that the hotel is quite pricey €186 a night for B&B and a room with a sea view. But the room was pretty special - lounge overlooking the sea & bedroom overlooking the quiet street at the back. We had excellent double glazing so when the windows were closed, outside noise was at a minimum.... More

On arrival this hotel was beautiful. Went to check in a there was four reception staff that didn't stop their conversation to greet us or even acknowledge our arrival. After checking in our room was just lovely, overlooking the ocean, very clean, beds were comfortable a great hotel if you can ignore the terrible reception staff. The lady who runs... More

This hotel was way over priced. This was the last place we stayed during our trip to Italy and we were expecting a bit of luxury given that we were paying almost 400 euro for two nights. We were very disappointed when we arrived in the Lido palace. We had a double room which was really dark and depressing. The... More

My family and I stayed at Lido Palace for one night on our Italian vacation. Whilst the hotel is advertised as a 4-star hotel, I found myself wondering when it was awarded these four stars: 1965? The Good: - Upon check-in, we were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. - The location is great and is literally 25 meters from... More

The staff at front desk when we arrived were not particularly friendly. Only one porter who was very helpful. The location is ideal but that for me is the only good thing about my experience. Beds-mattress and pillows were so hard and unforgiving that I woke with neck and back pain and then spent fruitless search for anyone to massage... More

This Hotel has an absolutely great location with our lounge area in our room overlooking the main road and beach. Originally we thought the noise from the road would be an issue but it wasn't. The rooms are well serviced with friendly and courteous staff,. The reception staff are outstanding, giving great advice on surrounding area visits. Breakfast was good,... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with my wife. At first we were worried that we wouldn't have much to do and attempted to change the booking last minute. The staff at the hotel were friendly and were willing to accommodate a change to the booking with a one night penalty which seemed fair. In the end we decided to stay... More

We very much stumbled upon this hotel and it was very charming! Filled with old world charm and very centrally located. We would definitely revisit. The rooms were surprisingly spacious and very clean. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We were fortunate enough to get a room with a balcony that certainly contributed to my enjoyment. Nothing like sipping... More

Location is great - but that's it. The place is old and the last renovation must been in the 70ies. Breakfast ok. WiFi very slow and not usable. As it Claims a 4 star Hotel with Location direct at the beach they'll Charge you 2 EUR/day to get a beachtowel - really?
