I have just returned from Lido di Jesolo after spending 5 days there. We were staying at the Hotel Sofia 3*. In my opinion I would give it NO STARS and call it a hostel NOT a hotel. The rooms were tiny with the maximum amount of beds squeezed into them (3 persons to a room), mostly camp beds and rooms were completely cramped. I shared a room with two others and I ended up sleeping in a bunk bed. We arrived early April.
so the weather was still pretty cold, the hotel had no heating so we had to sleep with socks and sweat tops on. We had to ask for more bed clothes, which were washed away woollen blankets with no heat and grubby looking. We were full board but there was no great variation/choice on food, it was a case of you ate what you were given - so ended up eating out most nites. Breakfast consisted of cereal, rolls. ham and cheese, cold coffee/tea - no other choice and no imagination at all. After day 2 I didnt want to see another roll or another bowl of pasta and frankly had no wish whatsoever to spend much time in the hotel only to sleep, and even that was an effort. Staff were unfriendly and there was little English spoken by staff, especially at the reception area, which caused problems when trying to communicate. The hotel had no bar, and no area where you could sit and chat and enjoy a coffee/beer or even feel comfortable. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone, as a matter of fact I reccomend that it be CLOSED down, they shouldn't be allowed call this run down hotel a business, it was a disgrace. Where I come from it would never be approved as a 3* hotel and I most definitely will never return. I saw plenty of other 3* hotels near Hotel Sofia which were far superior. As a matter of fact the hotel right next store Hotel Menfi was where we met for coffee/drinks and most of all for comfort and heat.
