When I looked for a hotel in Venice, I wanted a place that is suitable to have a rest between the days of wandering on streets of Venice. I had to take care of also my car. So the ideal place was Lido (di Venezia). From this point Buon Pesce seemed to be the best: easy to approach with car, with buses, with vaporetto. Before the journey my concerns were (based on the ratings):
- the breakfast (it is not a British breakfast, I agree, but it was delicious and more than sufficient),
- the distance from the vaporetto (it is about 400 from the Laguna Nord line, that goes twice an hour, and about 1 km from line 1, 52, etc., these go very frequently, in fact it was not worth to memorize, and buses start from the hotel six times per hour, I agree, in the nights there may be long waits for the bus)
These problems may have been observed in the past, but now we had nothing to complain about.
The rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped. The triple room had a really big bed for two persons, and a smaller bed for one.
The bathroom was clean and elegant, however, it is the time for the wallpainting.
The personnel was nice, we had no communication problems (however, we would have been happy to be warned to the strike of vaporetto and bus drivers).
We had a room with a distant view to Venice, in an environment that is quite elegant and quiet for the price. (And Lido itself worth to visit, if you are tired of Venice and the army of tourist.)
One point for improvement: I think the 10 EUR per day for the internet access is really funny in 2009, if someone really need internet, then 15 EUR will buy a prepaid mobile internet package for 24 hour (that can be consumed in installments so probably it will be sufficient for an average tourist for 1-2 weeks when on holiday).
