“Great experience at Villa Ines”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

The building and our room are exactly as shown in website. Location is in a quiet neighborhood and very convenient to the pier. The ACTV water-bus runs frequently so there are no worries getting into Venice. Several good dining options and a good bakery are nearby. The same type of lodging in Venice would probably cost us 2-3times the price! Staff (especially Stefano who was so helpful with our queries before and during our stay) and owner were friendly and professional and accommodated all our needs (ie. extra blanket, special request for breakfast, late-check out). One thing they could improve is to be a bit more generous when guests order "American Coffee". A larger pot or an additional thermos with hot water would solve the problem. The owner lives upstairs and has young children. It was a little noisy when they were running around on a Sunday morning. Walkable distance to the beach, a big bonus if you are to stay during the summer months. Overall, very good value and an excellent alternative to stay when you visit Venice! Already recommended to a colleague of mine!

Room Tip: Gold room was cozy and I loved the bathroom as it was large, bright and has a big window for fresh a...

Our family of 4 stayed for two nights in the junior suites at Villa Ines. Both were tastefully decorated and very comfortable.
The location on Lido was perfect for a quick trip to Venice. Breakfast was continental style, with hot rolls and croissants the highlight.

We had the pleasure of a cooking class by Marika which was very special and enjoyed by all ages. A behind the scenes trip to the family furnace in Murano was also a highlight.

Marika and Stefano were both most hospitable hosts, with warm welcomes and friendly recommendations.

We shall return.

It was wonderful!!!! We were at Venice to visit the Carnival and it was the first time we stayed at Villa Ines (and it was not the last time). On Lido it is much quieter than Venice itself and there were no crowds of tourists on the island. It was perfect. From Villa Ines you are at St Mark's in 20 Minutes (short way on foot to the station and by Vaporetto).
We stayed for three nights at the white room and one night at the green one. Both of them have beautiful decor and a cosy atmosphere. Breakfast was brought to our room each morning (after ordering it by phone) and it was delicious. For breakfast the white room is better, because there is a larger table.
When we arrived at Villa Ines, we were welcomed by Marika. She and Stefano looked after us for the next days. They made us felt to be friends. They recommended restaurants and answered all our questions. I would like to express our special thanks for their warm hospitality.
Thanks
Gertraude and Josef

Wonderful place. When our travel circumstances changed slightly, the staff accommodated us very well. The setting provides a genuine Venetian experience. Because Villa Ines is on the Lido, we had reason to take several lengthly public ferry rides, which enabled us to see the neighborhoods, as well as the sights, of Venice.

I stayed at Villa Ines for three nights on October. It was a wonderful and comfortable place to stay. Its location is nice to reach both the boat station and conference center on Lido island. It is easy to get there on foot. The circumference was very quiet and peaceful. The staffs were very kind and helpful. They served nice breakfast with home-made marmalade and croissants. Their garden was beautiful and prepared well. Unfortunately, I have little time to spend daytime on this garden because of my business and rainy weather. I recommend Villa Ines to everybody visiting Lido and Venice.

Room Tip: a bit confusing location to find at night (in may case)

We stayed at Villa Ines for 3 days, based on the Trip Advisor reviews.

It was wonderful!!! And Lido Island proved to be a great place from which to explore Venice. It was only 10 minutes by vaporetto to St Mark's and we could easily get to (i) the S.M. train station; the Grand Canal; and (iii) the airport from there by vaporetto. It is much quieter than Venice itself and there were no crowds of tourists on the island.

When we arrived at Villa Ines, we were met by Stephano who looked after us for the next three days with his staff. This included recommendations for meals at nearby restaurants in the evenings and directions re the island.

Villa Ines has beautiful grounds and there are murano glass sculptures in the garden. The rooms were also beautiful - designer decorated, very comfortable. with very good beds. Breakfast was brought to our room each morning (after ordering it by phone) and it was fabulous and plentiful. The croissants and rolls in particular were fresh and delicious.

All in all, it was a great place to stay in Venice and we would recommend it to others. Having a 72 hour vaporetto pass meant that we could travel at no other expense throughout Venice each day on the canal system. It was easy, for example, to have dinner in Venice in the evening and then travel back to Villa Ines at night by the vaporetto.

My husband and I stayed at Villa Ines on Lido Island for three nights in September, 2012. Excellent, excellent B&B and we are so glad we stayed there. The room and bath were elegant and the location very peaceful. We were glad we stayed on Lido Island rather than in Venice proper. The main Lido vaporetto stop is just an easy 10 minute walk from the B&B and Venice is an easy 10 minute vaporetto ride. Simple enough to pop over to Venice for sightseeing or later in the day again for dinner, although there are plenty of restaurants within minutes of the Villa Ines. We had breakfast in the garden every morning---the food, presentation and service were excellent as the B&B is owned by Marika, a prominent chef and caterer. In fact, the breakfasts here were our favorite out of all the places we stayed in Italy. Stephano was welcoming and very helpful...we appreciated his kindness and warm personality. Highly recommend the Villa Ines.
