This hotel is very well located very close to the water bus stop on the Lido. This makes it really convenient for getting to all the attractions in the main island of Venice and other islands dotted around, eg, Burano island where the coloured houses are. The hotel is very clean. Towels were changed every day and were spotless. The... More

I will start with the positives : The location was handy. As soon as you get off the water bus the hotel is right in front of you. However, in general I found the lido to be a huge disappointment. One male member of staff that wore glasses and worked mostly at night time during our stay was very warm... More

Good location near by the port. Walking distance only - lot of restaurants and bars around. The only thing you have to pay for the wifi which actually not really cool. Breakfast was fine. Was not that impressed with balcony view. And staff was nice

Our room was extremely small, as was the bathroom. Bed was lumpy and pillows thin. If i was still a teenager roaming Europe, I guess this would have been OK. The room looked like a youth hostel more than a hotel. Breakfast was OK. Staff was not friendly, I didn't feel welcome at all. On a positive side, the room... More

The Hotel is situated on the Lido Island so it is a lot more reasonable than similar hotels on the main island. The rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is good and the staff are friendly. The hotel is approximately 200m from the water taxi/ bus station

This hotel is not bad, but do not expect superior rooms beautiful, are just bigger than others. The hotel is neat and clean, superior rooms spacious with a nice bathroom. The staff upon arrival was not much smiling and welcoming, shame because the welcome on arrival is a business card of the hotel. However, the staff of the breakfast was... More

Away from the busy Venice Island, easy access to everything with the Vaporeto station around the corner. Front desk was very helpful, breakfast was good but eggs for weekends only that one I don't understand. Hotel and room s are very clean only toilets are a little tight if I was a bigger person I would have a problem. Overall... More

The decoration of this hotel obviously hasn't had an update sinds the 1940's or 50'r and I love it for that. Wonderful 'Madmen'-armchairs, large wooden doors etcetera. Some of the rooms are very large, the ecoomy rooms are tiny. The location is very good, near the boat to Vence San Marco. Staff at the reception is very friendly and helpful.... More

I checked in an noticed that the hotel lobby an corridors were dark and gloomy although it was in the middle of the day. Our room is located some where on the fourth floor but the lift only goes to the third floor, then you have to carry your bag up some narrow steps to your room. Got in to... More
