“Great location slightly tired hotel”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

This hotel is situated on the Main Street in the lido with the water bus stop at one end and a public beach at the other. Please see my review of the area in general as the lido is excellent. I couldn't fault the location as it is close to local cafés bars and eateries. The hotel is quite tired and requires some tlc, although it does have a classy old world feel. We opted for an economy room and it was really too small. I would definitely upgrade to a larger room if I stayed here again.

The reception staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast was really good. The hotel is very good value for its location.

Would I stay here again? Probably not I would pay the extra and stay at a slightly better hotel. But if budget is an issue you won't beat the location for its price.

Overall I would give the hotel 3 stars but it gets 4 for its location.

Stayed June 2014

This was a basic hotel but was perfect for the price we paid. The hotels feels like you are in your great granmothers house (quite dated...) but if your in Venice to see the City and not to chill out at the hotel this is perfect hotel at a great price.

The hotel is absolutely worth it. It is off the main island and on lido, which is a very chic little island with the most amazing beach. The hotel is surrounded by cafes and restaurants which make it a great place to go for a walk and some gelato in the evening. and the travel on the water buses are an experience not to be missed. The breakfast was also served in a beautiful restaurant and was the perfect start.

We stayed at the Boulevard Hotel on the Island of Lido when visiting Venice. What a great decision. Lido is a lovely place with its own restaurants,cafes,shops, bars and a beach to swim. We took our car over on the car ferry and parked it at the hotel for 10 Euro a day. We got the water taxi over to Venice and spent the day there and then came home to Lido. Venice is so busy but Lido is a quieter place. When we were going back we did not realise how busy the car ferry is. You can book the ferry by phone more than 3 hours before you travel or you can just show up and wait. We had to wait around 50 mins to get on as we did not know we could book!!! All good but if you had a deadline for a flight you may want to book the ferry. The hotel was good. Nice room, clean and comfortable and lovely staff and great position. The only thing I would criticise was the breakfast, it was pretty poor.

My other half and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of my birthday weekend and it was fantastic.
The rooms are rather on the small side but to be honest if like us you just use them to sleep and wash it is no problem at all.
The breakfast was nice and the times were good. Early enough if your up and out for the day but also late enough to ensure them hangover mornings mean a ly in is possible :-)
The guys on reception could not do enough for us and we bombarded them with questions about restaurants and Venice which they were always willing to answer.
They allowed us some extra free of charge time for a later check out which was really helpful.
Generally a perfect hotel with a great location :-)

This hotel is old Venetian style or so the travel agent kept telling me. Take from that ' hotel needs updating'! Lots of dark wood and dark dingy rooms in appearance. Our room was booked as a triple but it was just a super small double room with a third bed squeezed in. That left practically no room for three people, three suitcases and manoeuvring! The reception on arrival were pretty unhelpful giving us a really bad area map which was hard to read. To my astonishment the following day I waited for 30 mins at reception while a different receptionist gave a new client a speech about the area, things to do, where to eat, hope to use the safe in the room and gave a great map which he spent time writing on!!!! Great thanks our welcome was rubbish in comparison!
That said the rooms and bathrooms were very clean, the air con worked a treat. The gentleman in the bar who doubled as the porter was very helpful. The breakfast was plentiful but the hot food was always cold. Location of this hotel us very good. Overall just a bit average but an inexpensive option.

Great location. Lovely to stay on Lido after the crowds in Venice. Overall this hotel was good, but our room, with an "all red bathroom" , had a very high bath/shower, that was very difficult to climb into, was very small, noisy, hot & stuffy. The "air conditioning" was not turned on in May! A fellow guest, on our tour, asked if the the air con was working & said she was told they don't turn it on until summer/June? Our room was on the side alley, so there was noise from roller shutters on businesses & garbage bins late at night & in the mornings. Other guests, travelling with us, did have bigger, quieter rooms with better bathrooms than we did.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that's quiet & check when the air con is in use ? if you are staying in warm...
