“Clean, comfortable and everything you need.”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We booked last minute and are very pleased with our choice.

The hotel is exceptionally clean, comfortable and in a good location. It is easy to reach via water bus and land bus with a stop just around the corner. We are here for a week so paid 50 euros to use unlimited water and land buses to go anywhere around Venice and the lido. You can pay for each journey, 24 hour or 72 hour tickets. You are best to purchase one for the duration of your stay as it works out cheaper. Remember to validate your travel tickets on every trip by swiping next to the machines or you could face a fine.

We love staying on the lido as you get the peace and beaches to relax while the hussle and bussle of Venice is 10 mins and a couple of euros away.

The hotel caters very well for disabled guests with a lift to all floors and accessible bathrooms. The bedrooms are large enough to get a wheelchair about with no problems. The raised toilet seat, shower stool, hand rails and emergency cords are all kept clean and of good quality.

The shower is amazing! Even on the third floor the pressure was fantastic. The room was large with a balcony and air con.

The staff have been very welcoming and gave us a map on arrival pointing out all the attractions, local eateries and buses to catch to each place. They even helped us with a travel adaptor when we had forgotten ours.

Breakfast is what you would expect for the continent. Whilst basic consisting of two types of cereal, croissants, bread, ham, cheese, jam, spread, chocolate spread, juice and a type of biscuit toast it is everything you need.

After reading other reviews we thought it would be bad but there was staff there to replenish and help bring out anything that wasn't there at the time. If there was anything you needed they would go and get it.

I think some travellers forget the power of communication when on holiday reading some of the reviews. We found if we asked for anything they did as much as they could to help. All the staff speak very good English and were very patient with our poor efforts of Italian.

The hotel is close to a nice restaurant which is ideal for those nights you don't want the hassle of main Venice. It overlooks the sea and is reasonably priced.

There is also a local supermarket just down the road which is ideal for collecting supplies for the day. Just make sure you weigh your fruit before going to the checkout!

I would say this is more of a 3 star hotel than two and would be very happy to stay here again.

This hotel was chosen for it's location on the lido (10 minutes by waterbus from st marks square) and it's reasonable price. The rooms are, like most venice hotels, not 'plush' instead being cool and airy with minimalist fixtures and fittings. The marble floors and large windows were definitely brilliant in the high temperatures we had.Bed was comfy and the staff were accomodating. The room was big and we had a balcony. The beach and lagoon are eahc a 5 minute walk the the nearest bus stop to the water taxi stop is a minute away.
Breakfast was plentiful and of a good standard and everything was clean. The bathroom fixtures were a little dated and needed a bit of minor repair but all worked ok.
Nice quiet location and fits the bill if you want a reasonable price for Venice. (24 hour public transport tickets including vaporattos are about 20 euro so factor this in the cost!)

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights whilst visiting Venise. Prices on Lido are FAR cheaper than on mainland Venise and the seaside atmosphere of Lido is very enjoyable after a busy day out. We will definitely stay on Lido again but preferably closer to the centre and vaporettos as bus is required to reach this hotel (free if you have the bus/vapo pass). As mentioned in previous reviews, there are VERY limited smiles (if any) at the reception, and NONE from the (non Italian?) breakfast waitress we had. But we could put up with that for the price paid (90eur/room/night incl (lousy) breakfast). So, if you find hotel closer to centre for same price or cheaper, go there. If not, this is OK!
If you're looking for somewhere to eat in the evening, we HIGHLY recommend a little place close to the hotel, La Rotonda, Pizze e Cucina. We let the owner choose our dishes (we wanted to taste local specialities) and everything was de-li-cious ;P Tell him the place was recommended to you by the 'Europa group' (he nicknamed us so due to the various nationalities in our group ;0), and he may offer you a drink!

This hotel was extremely clean. Nice room but very basic. There was no fridge, hard to have a cold drink. There was no kettle to make a cup of tea or coffee.
Hotel is several bus stop from vaporetto. Quiet location. Beach is not the best, just ok. Private beaches are expensive, about 15€ per person.
Breakfast was average, internet worked but you had to ask for a password pretty much every day.
I could not read news in bed in the morning. I needed my new password and there was no one in the reception to give it to me.

Room Tip: Stay on the main island, if you need the beach, it s ok to get there fr one day.

Hotel Sorriso was very nice from the exterior and inside looks very modern and new also. Moreover the hotel is in a good location (not in really busy city center in quieter part) near of the bus stops,restaurants, small shops and close to beach.

I was glad for such a nice welcome from the gentleman on the reception and he gave me a good advises about the public transport, restaurants and beaches or tips to places what I should visit. There is very friendly staff and you can feel a kind of family atmosphere. They´re helpful and informed.

I came to visit my friend there, so I stayed for 4 nights in hotel Sorriso and I had such a nice single room, with comfortable bed, LCD TV, air condition and pretty bathroom. The room was every time clean. The view from the room
wasn´t awesome (i had view to court- the others rooms has a view to elementary school) but in my case it was calm and without noise.

The breakfasts are tasty and good for the level of the hotel - just simple breakfast (croissants, müsli,yogurts, cheese, ham, fruit salad, bread and so on), maybe the room where the breakfasts are served could look better with some pictures on the wall, some quiet music, flowers or open windows- then the mornings can be for guest nicer. And one more thing, breakfasts are very busy sometimes, so it´s necessary to be patient, because there is only one waitress and one lady in kitchen and it´s better to come on the breakfast earlier.

In this hotel is available free wi-fi, but you have to ask for the new login and password every time (it´s kind of Italian law about the internet in hospitality).

In my opinion the hotel is great, for the value too by the way. I can really recommend it and when I visit Venice in the future, for sure I gonna stay in hotel Sorriso. I just enjoyed it.

Our stay here was a mixed experience.

The good: Clean rooms with air con, friendly and informative staff, very near the beach, free wifi (be sure to ask for a password for each member of your party as each password is only valid for one device at a time).

The bad: We were not given any bath towels, had to ask three times for extra pillows before getting any, our bed was two (very hard) singles pushed together causing large mattress down the middle of the bed, and the breakfast was terribly (packet croissants and tinned fruit salad).
