The hotel staff here were more than welcoming and very helpful, and very nice people, the rooms were cosy and the shower was very powerful, just what you need after a long busy day, the only downside was there was no tea and coffee facilities within the room and the pillows wer like bricks which left my neck in pain...

This hotel is much worse than described in the previous reviews. It is very cheap and you really do get what you pay for here. The only thing positve about the place is the location, it is literally right where you catch the boat buses. The hotel is dark as soon as you enter and the rooms are even worse.... More

Dear Sarah J., We are sorry you have not enjoyed your stay in our hotel. Apart from the size of the room (economy rooms have 14 square meters and we beleive you have booked an economy double room with queen size bed), we must add that it is hardly possible that our rooms smell as you have described in your...

Great location, nice rooms, a little bit of dust just above the bed, but the hotel staff, a big disappointment. When we just entered the hotel we wished the lady at the desk a good day and while doing the check in we had a small chat with her, asking for hints what to visit, and since we were talking... More

Having got a great deal through Expedia, this hotel was really good value. The Lido was a really good place to stay in general, as it was cheaper and quieter than the main tourist areas. The hotel in particular was in the perfect location on the Lido, as it was less than a minute to the Vaporetto (waterbus) stop. The... More

This hotel has a good location as it is close to the boat services to historical venice. The hotel generally quite old but comfortable. Expensive wifi. Very expensive if check out late but could leave bags in hotel.

This hotel is not modern at all - furniture must be from the seventies, I guess. But for some reason I like it quite well, because it breathes the atmosphere of the old days. And all is still clean and well maintained. Our room had a new airco but still had a large, lovely old-style ventilator on the ceiling. The... More

Very comfortable. Staff were generally very friendly. Cleanliness of our room was faultless, sheets changed almost every day, room tidied, bathroom restocked and cleaned. Room was air conditioned free of charge. Very ideal location to get to the water bus to visit the mainland. Breakfast in the morning was the same each day but the selection was good. In and... More

This is a very basic hotel with clean look. The location to boat station is the most attractive point. Off the boat and you are at the hotel. About 15 minutes walk to the beach and lots of Gelato and restaurants. It is better to buy a day pass for boats, will definitely save you money. The breakfast at this... More

We stayed for a week in July for a family holiday in Venice. Staying on Lido worked well for us, as it is much quieter and it doesn't take long to get around by vaporetto (and you get great views from the boat). Hotel Helvetia is 1 minute walk from the water bus docks and very easy to find. The... More

We stayed there for three days in June 2014. Hotel is located on Lido, in front of the vaporetto station. It is about 5-7 minutes from Venice San Marco station by vaporetto. Lido itself is also very nice green icland full of flowers, and and the hotel was surrounded by green trees as well. Room was very comfortable and clean,... More
