Reviewed September 26, 2012

We stayed at the Rigel September 2012. The hotel was in a good position on Lido 10 minutes to beach and waterbus stop. It takes ten to twenty minutes to get to Venice depending on which stop you get off at. Our room was a good size with air con. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels. The only downside is no safe in the room although you can put it in the hotel safe in reception which is open 24 hrs a day. Breakfast was the usual continental style which was a good start to the day. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend the Rigel to anyone staying here as it is a lovely Island to stay on after a long day sightseeing.

Room Tip: I would recommend getting a waterbus pass. We got one for a week it cost 50 Euros. I think you have...

Very convenient location for water bus, beach and local restaurants. Down a quiet side street. Rooms were average, paid extra for a superior room, but not sure that this is what we got. Breakfast was a complete waste of time, one morning even the bread was stale.
Reception staff on the whole were very efficient, friendly and helpful.
We had a brilliant time on he Lido and in Venice, if you want a budget hotel, this will do just fine.

Not far from the vaporetto station and the public beach. Nice oldfashion hotel. Funny 60's design. Clean and quiet. Horrible breakfast though - better go somewhere else. There are many good cafes near the hotel with great coffee and delicious brioches.
Historic Venice is 15-20 minutes by vaporetto. Lido is charming and enjoyable. Come and see ))

Situated near the Vaporetto-station at Lido, it only takes 10 minutes with boat to central Venice. Fine rooms with beautiful details (beds, lamps, curtains), good breakfast in the garden, calm location but bars and shops nearby.

Our room was on the small size but that seems to be the norm in Venice and Italy in general. The hotel is a bit dated but clean and comfortable. The street is very quiet however there are several cafes and restaurants not far from the hotel, a bit cheaper than in Venice proper.

The main Lido vaporetto stop is close by (we had no trouble walking there with our luggage) but not too close to get disturbed by the noise. The water buses for Venice island are frequent.

If you are going to stay on Lido I recommend to get an ACTV tourist travel card for the vaporetto (and some buses) as it will soon pay off with your daily journey(s) to and from Lido, and elsewhere. You can buy these also online at www.veniceconnected.com and retrive them from the machine at the vaporetto stop. You can get a 12-hour, 24-hour,… 7-day travel card (you can also choose to include airport transfers). Depending on the season, a discount is available if you buy online a week or more ahead.

I used this as a base for Venice on a short photo trip - it was near the waterbus and in a quiet location. Good service and the room was good value for money - I only booked a single and it was a decent size for the price.

Staff were very knowledgable and friendly.

Breakfast ok but plenty of it and tasty enough to start the day.

The hotel has a slightly dated charm which was a refeshing change from some of the modern tacky hotels nowadays. If I get the chance to go back to Venice and want good value for money this will be on my list.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The hotel Rigel, built in the 60's, is situated on one of the most important islands of Venice.

Another characteristic that makes it unique, compared to all other islands of the Lagoon, is the possibility to reach it by car, avoiding problems and costs of car-parking either in Mestre (mainland) or at the Tronchetto (car-park). The hotel has 42 rooms on three floors connected by lift. The rooms nearly all have classical-style furnishings, are luminous, some with a small balcony and all with bathroom, shower, air conditioning, telephone with direct outside line, satellite TV, and a wireless internet connection. There is an internet point in the Hall. The Buffet breakfast is open from 7,00 to 10,00 a.M. In the breakfast room on the ground floor, while the restaurant is only open for organised groups.
