“A stay to remember”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We have just returned from a 2 night stay with our 3 year old daughter. The location is perfect, away from the hustle of venice but close enough to enjoy it. It's like having 2 different holidays in 1 as the beach was close enough to walk to as was the water bus stop to venice.
Staff at the hotel were lovely and helpful and the breakfast waiter was very kind to our little girl remembering that she liked chocolate milk with her breakfast.
The rooms are quaint, clean and comfortable. The hotel has character so if you want something more interesting than a travellodge then this is for you.
Thank you to the hotel staff for an enjoyable stay, we will return and will recommend to our friends.

The Hotel is about 5 minutes from the vaperetto station, located on a quite street. Many restaurants and bars close to hand. Okay so the hotel is a bit dated but i think that all adds to the charm. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was a delight too. I'd stay again

Next time i'm in Venice I'm staying over at the Lido rather than being fleeced in the Venice City!

Well positioned Hotel about 5 minutes walk from the Lido Vaperotto terminal . Located in a very quiet street with little traffic , just parallel to the main road to the beach.

Staff were all very helpful and friendly, from reception staff to the breakfast staff. Air conditioning was a must for Venice in August and worked well. Breakfast (outside or in) was of good quality.

A good place to base yourself for a few days in this wonderful city.

Overall this hotel wasn't too bad. It's very old fashioned.
We did book a small room but were still surprised just how tiny it was. Neither my husband or I slept too well as the pillows were so hard.
The service and breakfast were good though.

Me and my mother booked to stay at this hotel from 04/06/13-11/06/13. When we arrived at the hotel we were told that basically we didn't have a room at the hotel for the first night due to an overbooking.

We were taken over to the Villa Delle Palme, just over the road which was a 3 star hotel like the Hotel Rigel and they booked us in for the night there and we were told to come back over to the Rigel in the morning so they could give us the rooms we were supposed to have. The rooms we got at the Villa Delle Palme were on par with those at the Rigel and if anything were slightly better as they had an in-room safe and a little fridge which we did not have at the Rigel.

Once we got into the Hotel Rigel we found the place to be clean and to the standard that we expected based on the information that we read about the hotel. The staff on the front desk were friendly and helpful and the breakfast room was well run and had a good selection. The Hotel does seem a little dated in places from the normal key locks to the décor though the décor does not seem too out of place in Venice.

The good thing about the hotel is that it is a short walk from the main Vaporetto stop on the Lido, there are numerous restaurants, cafes and a few bars nearby and there is also a small supermarket called Billa nearby for those going self-catering.

During our stay we had no real issues to report and the only time we needed to go to reception was to hand in the room keys before going out each day. This in itself is not a major issue but it is a little annoying though I have experienced this in other hotels in Italy so it is not something unique to the Hotel Rigel.

All in all we enjoyed our stay in the hotel and on the Lido and would consider staying here again.

I was not pleased with my experience here. I found the man at Reception to be rude when we checked-in and thereafter. Upon walking into our room, there were carpet stains all over, and I found ants within the first 10 minutes. When we asked reception about it, we were told "It's nature!". Sorry, I'm not camping, I don't want nature in my bed with me. You have to pay for everything - WiFi (which was spotty at best even in the reception area), even the maps had a price. We spent as little time as possible during our 3-day stay. Will not be returning.

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.
