“Very recommendable Hotel with family atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Very recommendable Hotel!

We just returned from a 2 weeks stay at Hotel Gardenia in Lido de Jesolo.
We choose the Hotel based on its location and good reviews, next to the very attractive room rate and being able to take our dog along.
If you keep in mind this is a 3 star, family run, Hotel, you will be purely amazed about the high standard of service. Due to the fact that we had our dog with us, one of the first things Simone, the Hotel Manager, enquired about was, how we will make the arrangements for room cleaning. In fact, we could leave our room to walk our dog, any time it pleased us, in the morning, pass by reception, and the room would be cleaned right away. We found this very helpful and it showed that the Hotel went out of its way to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
As we travelled by our own car, Simone took care of parking it on the Hotel parking (which is very small but sufficient for all cars to get in).
Another plus of this hotel is the friendliness of the whole stuff. The group of staff is very pleasant, polite, caring for you and always smiling. Thank you Mattheo, Davide and the girls in the restaurant and at reception.
Although English is not so widely spoken. They almost all speak fluent German. The majority of guest during our stay, were mainly Italian, next to Austrians and a small group from other countries, which makes you feel you are really in Italy. We were the only ones visiting from The Netherlands.
If you are looking for real authentic Italian food, than Hotel Gardenia is the place you will enjoy. There is no buffet where everybody messes around with the food, but an excellent 4 course dinner service. We loved this. The good thing is that you can choose amongst 4 choices for each course in the morning and next to plenty of pasta you get salads, soups, fish, seafood and the occasional meat. You will have enough of food to walk off the long shopping street of Lido de Jesolo. The place is perfect for shopping, shop Made in Italy clothing and shoes (what a delight), plenty of cafes and bars and restaurants. On the entertainment side we could not really find a buzzing place that would have been right for us, most clubs or bars with music are for the age group of 18-28.
A huge advantage of the Gardenia Hotel that we appreciated a lot was the reserved beach chair at the very clean beach, just 200 m from the Hotel. No need to rush and look for a beach chair but just take it easy and arrive at the beach with a beach lounger waiting for you. Perfect!
Last but not least the superior deluxe room we booked was to our expectations. It looks slightly bigger in some of the pictures but the design, colors and comfort of the furnitures including the bed was very very good. We had a view on the sea and enjoyed the rain shower next to the little fridge, which we used a lot.
We want to thank Hotel Gardenia for a lovely and unforgettable stay and will recommend it to others.
One more thing, there is a boat leaving right from the beach that brings you to Venice in 1,5 hrs excellent boat ride, we really enjoyed this. The public main bus station is very close by and from there you can get connections to other cities, trains and take buses that get you around to the Faro and other parts of the city.
Who knows maybe one day we will be back. Would love to.

Our recommendations:
When the Hotel is really full and there are a lot of children, it can become pretty loud in the restaurants, we suggest to make use of the tables in front of the Hotel, there are quite a few and that would already make a big difference.

Internet connection is good, however Try to improve the internet connection stability as guest are logged out constantly.


We were amazed though how little support the Italians have for their world cup football team during the first round, we would have loved to join into the crowd of supporters.

The family who run this hotel really care that you are well looked after. They go above what is expected to ensure you are enjoying your stay there.
Our room was spotless and pleasantly decorated in muted tones with a lovely ensuite. We even had a small balcony where we could see the beach.
Plenty of choice at Continental Breakfast.
We often had coffees and a drink on the front terrace before going up to our room. No matter how busy the staff are they always serve you with a smile.
Well done Gardenia for showing how service should be.
I would stay here again and not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Wonderful family run Hotel, just got back having spent 5 nights with faultless hospitality from Mama and Papa, Simone, Serena Elainia and David.
Wonderful position set back from the beach, ideal for both beach holiday and visiting Venice.
Local shops/Bars 50 metres
Four course Meal everynight, waitress service and excellent food - the profiteroles are the best I've ever had!
I wouldn't look to go anywhere else - I shall be back!
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Siobhan.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone with confidence. It's a family run hotel and all the staff were very warm and welcoming. Simone really knows how to make people feel at ease and has obviously trained his staff well. The waitresses were always smiling and it was obvious they were happy in their work. The food was superb, the rooms clean and serviced every morning with fresh towels etc and the whole hotel was very fresh and well decorated. There was free bike hire, the beach about 50 metres away with free sunbeds and umbrella's, and the shops were 50 metres in the other direction with plenty of shops and bars.There wasn't a pair of Union Jack shorts in sight !
I only came back 4 days ago and have just tried to book again in October, but sadly they are full..and I'm not surprised. I will definitely go back there again, the only trouble is with the reviews that are on here, I can see it will be pretty well booked up all year, and they deserve it !
Superb, and thank you to all the staff !

we are very grateful for this wonderful review. All your compliments gratify us a lot, our commitment and care that we do with passion in everything we do, at the end collect their fruit. All staff and Simone thank you for your kindness. We really hope to be able to sleep again in the future: have faith that a place for her is our intention to always be able to find. Thanks again!

Vittorio, Dina and Simone have to be among the nicest people on the planet. Never have I felt more welcome and treated so well. We spent three nights and hated to leave. The remodeled rooms are great and the meals the best in Italy. We like the beach and Lido di Jesolo so much that we no longer visit Venice unless we are with friends who have not seen it. We prefer to spend our time at the Hotel Gardenia an the Jesolo area. Fellow Americans take heed, skip Venice (or just go in for an expensive gondola ride) then spend the rest of your time with the Bachins at Hotel Gardenia. You'll be glad you did.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a balcony and views of the Adriatic. Just ask to see the room when you check in...

We have just spent a week at the Hotel Gardenia. We are a family of 4 and an 18 month year old. What can I say, from the moment we arrived at the hotel to the moment we left we were very very impressed with this hotel in every way. The room was pristine with a beautiful bathroom and small balcony with a sea view. This was cleaned every day to a very high standard and we had fresh towels each day. We were half board at the hotel and the food was delicious. Breakfast was different choices of fresh meats, cheeses, a good variety of breads, fruit juices and fresh fruit, pastries, eggs, cereal and plenty more. This was served in a breakfast room downstairs which also had a play area for children and televisioin. Lunch and evening meal were served in the beautiful upstairs diningroom and the foold was very varied and delicious. The service was excellent! It seems to me that this family have made it their sole intention to provide all guests who stay there with a hotel stay they wont forget. The hotel also offers an airport shuttle service and bicylces should you wish to do this. Once again to Simone and your family we say thank you very much for making our holiday so good.

Room Tip: I think most rooms have some sea view. The ones on the right side of the hoel are partial but those...

I have just spent 5 days staying with my Mum and four siblings at this family run hotel. We could not fault anything, such a warm welcome and wonderful hospitality. The rooms were light and airy and cleaned daily with fresh towels. The food we could not fault, plenty of choice and served by Serena and Elaina who were so friendly and obviously happy in their work. Simone was very helpful and there was always a very friendly welcome at reception.
The hotel is situated very close to the beach and the sunbeds are provided free of charge.
Evenings can be spent strolling along the promenade or looking around the many shops. We visited Venice, driving to Pont Sabionni, paid 5 euros to park the car and then got the vaporetto. Our stay was made so much better with wonderful weather, a few thunder storms but these were in the evening so didn't affect us too badly. I hope to return with my husband for another visit and would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room had 3 separate beds. One was a sofa bed but was very comfortable. We chose this room over...
