Hotel Atlanta Augustus

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I spent one whole week in this hotel which in the first place should have only one star. But then again: not even one star because in hotels of one star you may use the kitchen and here you're not allowed. I knew that so that's not the issue. The terrible things are among others: the extremely poor breakfast which is included: the bread is so hard as stones, there's only one choice of cheese and ham, the croissants are old, the fruit (bananas) are nearly black. The coffee is tasteless, and that in a country with great coffee! Another guest from Nigeria asked for frighted eggs: the employee of the kitchen said "No!" and there she went. The noise: if you happen to have a room nearby the stairs: prepare NOT to sleep, extremely noisy! And then the most terrible: no wifi at all. Every day we asked if they can do something about it: "we are looking at it". A place not to come back ever.

There are hotels and then there are hotels. We have been fortunate to stay at some of the most famous and luxurious hotels in many cities around the world but one hotel keeps coming back to us in memories with such fondness that it is hard to describe. And quite strangely, it is not one of the expensive ones. First of all, this hotel is not even in Venice, Venice. It is in Lido, the island diagonally opposite and to the left when you look out to sea from Piazza San Marco. And the fact that it is in Lido, is part of the magic. We have stayed at the Gritti Palace, at the Londra Palace and some other 'palaces' but one thing that always bothered me was that as soon as you as you step out of your hotel, you are greeted by ten thousand tourists and five thousand selfie sticks. If you really want to enjoy Venice, then you need to stay for a few days or a week, like we do sometimes and then all this selfie taking and rose giving becomes quite a little too much. But Lido is entirely different. And the neighborhood of the Atlanta Augustus is even more enchanting, in that it is in the midst of a residential area, facing a narrow canal. One wakes up to call of birds and the to the soft chatter of locals going about their daily lives. One has pizza next door sitting out in the open beside the canal, most of the other guests being local Venetians. Just a few steps away a wonderful family run trattoria serves fresh sea food. Or walk a little more, to our favorite Favorita, arguably one of the best restaurants in Venice. Many make the mistake of 'visiting' Venice by way of a day tour, avoiding staying in Venice which could be expensive. But Venice is a city to be explored, to be experienced, to be remembered. One needs to stay in Venice and to wake up early for a croissant and coffee at a local café and stay out late in San Marco. This would hardly be possible if one stayed in Mestre (no flavor) or in Padua (too far). The best option therefore is to stay in Giudecca or like we do, in Lido, and if your hotel is our hotel, then the tariff is also gentle. And if feels more like 'living' in Venice, away from the maddening selfies.

What a great local hotel. It's on a quiet street in Lido right on a small canal. The hotel is a bit old and in need of some updates but otherwise very comfortable. It is 10 min from the main drag (bars, restaurants), the vaporetto stop (10 min ride to St Mark Square), and the free public beach. We had 2 rooms that were clean and nice. The breakfast is pretty standard. The staff was super accommodating and very helpful. They helped surprise my husband for his birthday with a delicious bottle of wine and a fruit basket in our room. One of the rooms was on the first floor that had a loft with a queen bed and 2 twin beds on the bottom. This room was comfortable for my mom and two kids and quiet (it's situated in the back of the building). The other room was on the top floor and had a wrap around balcony. It had an amazing view. Both bathrooms were pretty dated and in need of a rehab but served the purpose well. The elevator is very slow but worked fine. Surprisingly the AC units worked very well in the heat. The hotel allows parking in their "backyard" for 10 euros/day if you arrive by car. Overall we had a great experience and we would go back and stay at this hotel again.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here in October 2016. After a taxi boat to the lido we easily found the hotel. Very quirky little hotel... typical Italian decor. Room were a little our dated and needed a little bit of tlc. However it was clean and did the job. Breakfast was ok, simple continental breakfast. Loved some of the little local restaurants and bars on the lido.

I've been going on holiday for the past 3 summers to the Lido but this was the first time staying at the Atlanta Augustus. Location: The location is really fantastic, being just off of the main high street where there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants. Conveniently it is also only a couple of minutes walk from the Santa Maria Elisabetta boat station (which takes you over to Venice in about 15 minutes for just £7.50). The hotel is also only around a 5 minute walk from the beach. Hotel: We paid for an upgraded room and even though it was still relatively small, it was very clean, had everything you needed (safe, fridge, hair dryer, plenty of storage etc), and was well kept by the staff daily. The breakfast was simple but nice too, with a wide selection to keep everyone happy, and a cute little courtyard for eating outside if you so wish to. Staff: This is where the Atlanta Augustus really impressed us. The staff members were always very friendly and accommodating to all of our needs, and unexpectedly even went to the effort of making us a lovely pack-breakfast for our departure as they knew we were leaving early that morning and could not make breakfast. It's small gestures like that which means we will definitely return to the hotel next time we go back t the Lido. Overall the Atlanta Augustus is a great little hotel which I would highly recommend. Simple but clean, friendly and great value!

Luckily the Atlanta Hotel on the Lido, Venice, had a single room available for me on 28th May 2017 for 2 nights. The reception staff were very polite and considerate. The room was clean and comfortable with en-suite facilities. The whole hotel was air-conditioned which was great as the weather was very hot. The breakfast was typical continental but adequate. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel, it is convenient for water buses, shops and restaurants, and the price is very competitive.

We were very delighted to stay there! The Hotel was cosy, clean and tidy, and the room was more than we expected! Fully organised, with safe, big bathroom, fridge, air conditioning. We would surely visit it again and we would gladly suggest it to everyone!

The hotel is just a 10 minute walk from the last water bus station, Lido and is symbolic of the beauty of Venice in general. It's about 15 mins boat ride away from the main town square of Venice, ie San Marco (which has the Rialto bridge, St Marks square and Basilica and the gondola rides) and about 45 mins away from Venice train station. It offers excellent views of a canal from the upper floors and the buffet breakfast is real good, relatively speaking. There are about 5-7 restaurants at a 5 min walk so you're all covered. Go for it.

I stayed here for the Venice Film Festival and it was great place. The staff was very nice and accommodating and the hotel was a quick 10 minute walk to the festival. The price was reasonable and everything was clean and well maintained. This is not the Hotel Excelsior which is right beside the film festival but this was a fraction of the cost and it was closer to the restaurants on Lido and it was a five minute walk to the ferries. I found Lido Island to be a charming break from the often tourist infested insanity of central Venice. I found the hotel charming and well worth the stay.

We had a nice time in the Atlanta Hotel, and for thr tiny ammount we payed it was a good place to stay. Only the water pressure of the shower was quite low. The breakfast was okay, we would n't have needed more. We would totally recommend that hotel for travellers on budget
