Reviewed April 27, 2013

Stayed in this hotel for our wedding anniversary, and i should say the hotel looks very Venetian and romantic. We booked a superior room with the canal view. We're a bit high from the canal itself (3rd flr) but it doesnt matter as we still can hear the passing Gondolier and gentle waves. Bathroom is adequate in size and the room is big enough. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We are just not comfortable with a 2 single beds joined together to make a double bed, the bed itself is a bit hard, and we prefer a smooth duvet rather than a texturised blanket. The TV needs updating, and the aircon should be working, the weather was lovely during our stay, but i could imagine it will be too hot during summer. The breakfast was nice, with a very good coffee.

We have stayed at this hotel several times and have always rated this as an experience of Venice to add to the magic of the charm of the whole holiday. The hotel is situated alongside a canal adjoining the Grand Canal with a gondola station below your window. Very romantic atmosphere throughout the hotel, decorated in traditional Venetian style. A first floor bedroom is the best, as there is no lift, as buildings of that age were built long before lifts were invented. Service is good but the breakfast room is small, we had no problem finding a table though. Enjoy......

Room Tip: First floor room only.

This hotel is in an amazing location, 2 mins walk from St Marks square and on a canal with a gondoler station right next to it. It was wonderful getting ready in our canal view room and hearing the gondoliers singing whilst going down the canal. The decor is very traditional and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. the room was an ok size just what you need really as your not going to be spending much time in there when you are sightseeing! the breakfast is a continental one the only suggestion i would make is to add some fresh fruit as there wasnt any which limited the choice for me as im allergic to dairy so there wasnt much i could have. It was very clean and tidy and on our way out the first day the man on reception gave us a map and told us where to go and recommended some good sights and resturants, brilliant service it is great value for money and a true venetian hotel experience.

Room Tip: Go for a canal view for a great experience its a little louder but didnt interrupt our sleep

We stayed at Hotel Lisbona at the end of February and had a very positive experience. Ok the room was small but who cares when you are out and about all day exploring the delights of Venice? The service was spot on and breakfast was self service but included everything you could wish for. The decor is a bit faded but this matches the atmosphere of Venice itself. The best thing for us was value for money - for a hotel slap bang in the middle of the action you would not find anything cheaper.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room ask for a room away from the canal!

The location is excellent, just moments' walk from St Mark's Square. There's a gondola service point just near the hotel entrance, so there are gondolas going past the canal-side throughout the day and evening - we loved sticking our heads out of the bedroom window to watch and listen.

Breakfast is served in a small area at the foot of the stairs. We never had a problem getting a table, but I imagine it could be tricky during the high season. Breakfast is good with plenty of options.

The decor is traditional Venetian, which we found charming.

On the negative side, there's no lift. We were on the second floor (third floor if you're American) and there were 41 stairs. It was OK, but we were glad we weren't on the next floor up!

A little tricky to find but with the help of a lovely local the hotel Lisbona was great. Ideal position right next to SanMarco and the centre of venice with everything within easy walking distance. Canal room overlooked lovely small canal and waking up to the sounds of venice with singing gondoliers passing your canal view room all added to what was a great trip. Rooms were traditionally venetian, staff were warm friendy and helpful although we missed reakfast every morning it smelt good and others seemed to enjoy. Highly recommend it and would definitely stay here again. We flew into trevisoand used the airport bus transfer 13euros return and excellent & reliable. (TIP: don't rely on maps in the guide books buy one at the piazza roma when you arrive)

Room Tip: Canal view worth a little extra

I have only praise for this hotel. Great location close to St Marks Square. My room was very small but comfortable and cosy, well heated with a thermostat I could control, nice bathroom, canal view as requested complete with singing gondoliers even in January! I liked the furnishings - fabric coated walls and ornate mirrors. Hairdryer, minibar. Breakfast was acceptable, with fresh rolls, croissant, cheese, cold meats, a good selection of cereals, yoghurts, juice. Fresh fruit would have been nice, but the coffee was good. Friendly staff and really helpful, friendly reception service. A bargain price for winter season. As a single woman traveller, I felt safe and completely at ease here.

Room Tip: I would suggest asking for a canal view.
