Ambience is ok, but definitely not luxurious. Only breakfast room can be called as WOW! Outstanding! (Except breakfast quality. CHAMPAGNE at breakfast is not I sign of quality ) Room furnishing is authentic and show that hotel is old. But that is the only sign of it's tradition. Luck of qualified personal and guest oriented attitude from staff, make this... More

Lido is Venice but actually something different....you can't miss if you want a 100% experience of the City of The Doge. Quite, landscaping, relaxing, glsamorous, modern luxury with a taste of history.. Excelsior is the story of the last century Venice glory, is the right place to be pampered and cured with discretion but with the warm kindness of italian... More

We stayed here before starting our cruise. Beautiful setting, middle eastern type decor in our rooms, huge bathrooms, phenomenal breakfast, attentive helpful staff. Loved the beach. They supply transportation to Venice hourly. I would recommend this to anyone----but it is quite pricey so be prepared for sticker shock!

My sister and I arrived at 12:00 midnight. We took the vaporetto ( public transportation) to lido from the airport. It was 7 euro each. The journey was 40 minutes to our stop. We got off the boat and caught a public bus to the Excelsior which was the 3rd stop. We then walked 5 minutes to this palace on... More

I was there for business reasons. The timing was not the best as we could not enjoy the beach facilities and the outdoor swimming pool. Breakfast and dinner were over my expectations. The bartenders have a great experience and take care of your needs and habits before they pur you any drink. Reception staff is probably used to more important... More

This hotel is very elegant and grand. The room was huge and elegant, more like a suite, and was immaculate. It had a wonderful door that opened onto a balcony right on the sea. The staff spoke excellent English and were courteous and professional. However, we evidently were there during the off-season. The beach had closed for the season, and... More

This hotel has a great deal of history and has been renovated several times over the past 10 years. It is spacious and lovely with a beach. It is perfect for a getaway from the mainland of Venice after a hot day of shopping and sight seeing. I recommend it for 3-4 nights to enjoy Venice. The shuttle service worked... More
