My wife and our 2 children (3 and 5) stayed here for 2 nights after a recent east med cruise. This is a typical 2 star european hotel in terms of its decor and facilities however where it excels in my opinion is the nice modern bathroom and good shower + the very helpful and friendly staff. We all stayed in a family room, large double bed and bunk beds for the children and the room was clean and air conditioned. the staff gave us plenty of information about the public beaches, good restaurants and the transport options. Also got advised to use the local stop to get the Alilaguna direct to the airport. We had arrived on main LIDO stop and didnt even know we had thi soption so we only had to walk 5 minutes with our luggage! Good tip. They had the timetables of all the buses and vaporettas which was useful.

This is a family run 2 star budget hotel which was very friendly, the staff couldn't do enough for us. I shared a twin room and the room was very clean with a modern bathroom. Breakfast is a buffet style and offers a wide choice of different delicious foods. We booked this hotel a couple of months before we went and we got it a bargain. If I was coming back to the iland of Lido I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: None of the hotels switch on air con until June

Our family of 6 stayed here last year. A few suggestions for the large families. They don't have interconnecting rooms, so, you can choose to stay in a large room with bunk beds or separate into different rooms. The rooms were clean, but a bit small, even for European standards. The breakfast was good and had a variety of cereals which the kids enjoyed. There is no elevator, so keep that in mind if you have smaller children like us that tend to fall asleep in the stroller. The rate was pretty good compared to some of the other hotels in the area, so if you're looking for an average hotel for a good value, give the place a try.

Rivamare is a small, quiet hotel very close to some much grander establishments. Our room was clean, with a good bathroom and a balcony looking out over the Venice Tennis Club – very pleasant. The beach is a short walk away. A (slow) computer in the lobby offers internet at Euros 2.50 for 30 minutes – good luck finding the ‘@’ key!

We have recently come back from staying at the Hotel Rivamare and we wanted to say thank you for making our stay in Venice a wonderful one!

Everyone at the hotel was so friendly and helpful and it is fantastic value for the location. A hidden gem and only a few yards from the beach! The hotel is very pretty and in a perfect location. Compliments must also go to the breakfast buffet which was delicious, the best we have ever had on holiday.

We will definitely be recommending Hotel Rivamare to our friends and we hope to come back very soon!

Read the other reviews and was not let down. The plus of staying on Lido is you get to see more of Venice and spend more time on the water due to being on the water taxi. The hotel was nicer than expected, with a great breakfast and wonderful location away from all the tourists. I would stay here again in heartbeat!
