It's amazing place for the young

It's amazing place for the young pairs as we are. Views from the upper floor to the night Venice are great. And if you are not so lucky to get the number with the view to the waters you can use the possibility of common balcony. The service is perfect. Morning breakfasts are varied and tasty. It's located on Lido - island that separated from the common part. But for us - it's a plus. It's only 15-20 min to the central Venice, but we'are getting quite and silence and beautiful sights instead the view of the neighbor building. Can recommend for all.

Great Hotel

The hotel was very clean, staff were quite helpful and close to the station, not too far to St Marks Sq. Local super market nearby. Great view I will definitetly use it again. I read the past reviews and decided to use it - no regrets Internet facility needs to be improved.

Good Location, lots of noise

The hotel was in a good location. Right near the vaparetto stop to venice and the airport. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The excellent and absolutely huge free breakfast just about made up for the shortcomings. The biggest problem was the noise. Which really wouldn't have been a problem at all if the air conditioning was availabe. We stayed in late May and it was warming up, but not uncomfortably. The airconditioning is only available during main summer months, but to keep the room cool you had to have the shutters all the way open to get a breeze. Not a problem during the day, but at night the buses coming and going and all the street noise was a huge problem. Then Italy won a big soccer match so the locals drove around honking horns and celebrating. Which was fun, until it went on for several hours. Then there was a crazy amount of noise coming from the bar across the street until 2 am. We got virtually no sleep in our 2 day stay, because the buses start around 5 am and make the whole room shake when they drive by. Not exactly the ideal way to end your 2 week trek through Europe. When we complained we were just told the air conditioning wasn't availabe. And if we were able to shut the windows, the noise wouldn't have been an issue at all. The hotel was a good price, and needed some updating and renovation, but everything was pretty clean.

A great place to stay.

This is an older hotel that has been beautifully restored. It is very quaint and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would not recommend it for small children, though since it is small and does not provide amenities to entertain children. The location is great - only about 100 yards from the water ferry station. The village of Lido is really interesting also. The beach is about 6 blocks away and there are several lovely restaurants within a couple of blocks.

Good Location for the price

Friendly front desk people. Breakfast was good with variety of food choice. Travel was easy to follow and hotel is just across the street from ferry landing. Restaurant choices were good in the area. Would stay @ this location again.

was a great choice

We selected the hotel from the reviews and they were all right on. It was comfortable and right across from the water bus. Very convienent. Nice breakfast and the rooms were very clean. Took only minutes to get away from the hustle and bustle of Venice and was much more reasonalbly priced. Loved it and would stay again.

Enyoy the calm of the Lido

The Riveria sits just across the street from the Lido vaporetto stop, making it as convenient as a Lido hotel can be to central Venice. Beautifully decorated, with a charming gift shop attached. Very good value for the price; helpful, multi-lingual staff; 15 min walk to the Lido beaches which I recommend off-season, when they are quiet, but still sunny, in late Sept. and early October. Take advantage of the outside sitting areas (with views of the water) on the first and fourth floors, the doors to which are sometimes locked, but will be graciously unlocked for you by hotel staff.

The famous, elegant, Belle Epoque Hotel des Bains is just a 15-minute walk and is worth seeing for its evocation of the novel and film "Death in Venice."

The location was a great price and value, but difficult to get to. It was near the beach. It didn't have great water pressure or air conditioning.

Sceptics! Pleasantly surprized!

We acted like tourist in Venice and Lido. We took the ferries, walked and rented bicycles. We wish we had been able to take day trips to other places in Italy while we were in the area but that is for the next time. This hotel was very good because of the location. The only distraction from a good time was the lack of truly complimentary services, i.e. breakfast and Internet. We needed to stay connected but couldn't and much to our surprize we received additional charges for the complimentary breakfast services.

A very pleasant surprise in Venice

This is a gem of a hotel that is situated on on a large, long island about 10 minutes by the Venice Ferry system to St. Marks Square. A nice Adriatic Beach is a 10 minute walk, and the Hotel has (free for guests) reserved spots in the Private (though still busy) beach. The hotel is 50 meters from the very frequent boat service that serves as the main public transportation of the area. We enjoyed a day at the beach as well as a several days of sightseeing.

The Hotel is located at the Boat Stop "Lido". The Italian trains can take you to the train station on the main island (Venice S.N.M.) where there is a connection point for the public boats (Vaporetto). A single ticket costs 6.50 Euro. It's best to buy a one two or three day ticket right from the start. You'll save money.
