First impression: the hotel itself is dated but the room was nicely maintained/renovated.
The room: we were on the top floor (5th) and had lovely views over Lido. Large and clean. The bathroom had been renovated, and the room as well. The bed was comfortable. Some things we found amusing but harmless (mismatched hangers, slightly faded decorative pillows) that might irk the truly OCD.
Service: the gentlemen at reception spoke near-perfect English and were very helpful (weather, directions to the beaches, Film Festival, etc.). The late-night shift was a bit wishy-washy (didn't give us a wake-up call, was not very alert/professional) but we had a very early 5 a.m. checkout so we gave him a little leeway. Especially since the daytime staff is so professional.
Breakfast: Warm croissants (Italian style--they're sweet and brioche-like), fresh seasonal fruit (peaches, plums, etc.), dense Italian breadrolls, yogurt (3 flavors), cured meats, cheese, and cookies. They have a juice machine (white grapefruit!) and a hot drink machine (coffee, hot chocolate)...about as good as it gets when it comes to continental breakfast!
Location: 15 minute walk (shorter if you hustle, like we did) to vaporetto stop to Venice, nice restaurants and bakeries nearby, really close to the beach, and SO relaxed and quiet compared to daytime Venice. Billa Supermarket halfway to the vaporetto for affordable food and drinks.
Overall, great value, enjoyable stay. We have recommended Byron to our friends and relatives as a great alternative to main Island hotels. :)
