Do not look at the web site photos as this nothing like them. On arriving after a very early start from England we were shown to our room. We were given a room at the front of the hotel ground floor very small. This room had nowhere to sit you could not walk around the bed without bumping your toes which my husband did all the time.We could not open the windows as it was at ground level and on to the road. We immediately asked for another room but was told no as the hotel was full and we had booked an economy room to be fair we really did not realise this as we had booked on Expedia and assumed we were getting a nice room Where are these lovely rooms I don't know ? There is no outside space to sit which would be nice after a trip to go back to the hotel and sit outside all there is is a huge bike area where locals come park their bikes and go the beach, The location on the beach is excellent as after a day site seeing Venice it is nice to be able to have a dip in the sea. Be warned tho if you want a bed its 25 euros a day or 15 for a half, The hotel will provide towels but you have to pay for them unless you book the hotel on their website.The breakfast was just like any continental breakfast the hot food was cold but when we asked for some hot they obliged which was good.we were so disappointed in this hotel as we had read some fantastic reviews. I think because we were so cramped up in this tiny airless room it spoilt our view of the hotel when tried to talk to the man who showed us the room all he said well you have air conditioning not much good when you have asthma like I do.We managed as went to Venice every day on the boat truly magical and so good when you go by boat as you see it from different angles top tip buy 3 day passes from the local shop on the main street 40 euros per person and it covers you for bus rides into the port and the boat trips very good value . Nowhere to eat around the hotel but 10-minute ride into the port area and its buzzing with lots of restaurants and bars very good try the local drink spritzer it's like a cocktail better and cheaper than a Bellini so good we had a wonderful trip to Venice and enjoyed staying on the Lido I don't want to be too negative about the hotel but be warned it's not a 4 star hotel as advertised unless ratings for hotels are different than the U.K and ask about your room before you book as this, not a cheap hotel it's better to know before hand as this was a special birthday trip for us so disappointed this hotel

We stayed here for 4 nights in late June, and it was a good choice! Ideally situated both for exploring Venice and also for relaxing on a pristine beach. Room was spacious and bathroom was modern and will equipped. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. It was very easy to get the vaporetti Into Venice, and lovely to come back to the peace and quiet of the Lido when we had our fill of culture and shopping! We would return to this hotel .

My wife and I enjoyed our stay on Lido at the Hotel Petit Palais. It has a great view of the sea, an excellent breakfast buffet included in the price of the room, good size beds, air conditioning in the rooms, and a very friendly and helpful staff. The shower is small by American standards, and the hotel does not have its own beach, but guests can access the neighboring beaches at a discount. As I was attending a conference at the nearby Palazzo di Cinema, the location was ideal. However, it is a bit of a walk from the Lido S.M.E. port, so I would suggest using the bus. In general, I strongly recommend staying in Lido rather than Venice proper. Lido is much quieter and less crowded. Hotel Petit Palais is a good and relatively inexpensive choice to stay on Lido.

Spent 3 nights here in a superior double room Nice room with a shower and balcony facing the sea Found the staff to be very helpful and friendly breakfast was good with plenty of choice between cereals cold meats and bacon and eggs The hotel is about 25 minutes walk to the boat station and a further 15 minutes to st marks square Its worth the journey to escape the bustle of Venice and the vaporetto runs late to lido . After three day touring Venice it was nice to spend a day on the beach before flying home Miles of beach with no crowds Lovely. Bags were stored at the hotel and they gave us use of facilities to change and clean up before catching the boat to the airport Would certainly return as we really enjoyed our stay

We went for a 3 night short trip and found the hotel to be perfect for our needs. It is located right on the beach at the Lido and a 2 minute walk from the nearest shops, bars and bus stop. The bus took less than 10 minutes to get to the centre of the Lido near the St Maria Elizabetta boat stop and lots of amazing bars and restaurants. The hotel was very clean and had really friendly staff. It had a small bar and only served a continental breakfast (no evening meals) but freshly baked pastries cereal, fruit and delicious Italian coffee was all we needed. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the beach and the only negative was that the bathroom was small, but it was more than suitable for us. My advice would be to buy a 3 day ticket which allows you to hop on and off any bus on the Lido and Water Bus (not a water taxi!) We definitely got value for money out of a 3 day ticket at 40 euro per person.

This was a phenomenal hotel. Clean, Modern, everything you really want in a hotel plus. The breakfast room was great and the food had a super selection. The best asset in the hotel was CARLOS, always ready to give recommendations and directions, so helpful, we will return again

We went to Venice for a last minute trip for 2 nights-3 days. I picked this hotel because it was at pretty good price for the area. Although it's across from Venice, we enjoyed the in and out in the vaporetto. You do have to take a bus to the port (maybe you can walk but we didn't have time for it) which takes 5 min and comes every few minutes. The bus stop is a block and half from the hotel. At night, we had dinner around the area and it was very nice as it is full of locals. The room was pretty big with a view of the beach. The bathroom was on the small side but for two days it was find. The bed was comfortable which is so important for me. Reception was very helpful with directions and the included breakfast was ok. We had everything including an excellent espresso. Very good money for value. On the arrival night, we took a taxi from the port and with the luggage was 7 Euros. The vaporetto came directly from the airport and the next day, we had plenty of options to visit Venice and the other areas. As it was hot, to us, the vaporetto's breezy trips were good breaks from the heat.

Lovely hotel (modern, not pretty, but everything you need - unless you want a pool). Great room, quiet/peaceful location, VERY friendly & helpful staff. Easy (4 mins) bus to centre of Lido, where the waterbus link to Venice is frequent, simple & fun (about 20 mins to St Marks Square). Bacon and scrambled eggs available every morning, but also loads of pastries, cheeses, breads, juices, yoghurts and cereals etc. etc. Even the mini bar prices are not extortionate (a beer from the fridge was less than one in a local bar). I would return in a heartbeat. Anyone moaning about this place has no justification or ridiculously high expectations. We loved it. Thanks Carlo.

We reserved two rooms for our party of 4 and were very happy with our accommodations and staff. My wife and I ended up in a goofy room that had two supporting beams and a half wall near the middle of the room. But, it was comfortable enough. Breakfast was great. It had a nice selection of eggs, various salamis, cheese, croissants, and other breads, etc. One note - from the vaparetto station, take a cab or bus. We were told it was a 15 min. walk - it turned out to be 35 minutes of pulling our luggage behind us. If you buy a vaparetto multi day pass, the bus fare is included.

The hotel is easy enough to reach basically take any bus that is going right as you look out of the water taxi bus A,B or C will drop you off a minute away from the hotel. The staff were helpful whenever we had anything to ask so no complaints there! We stayed here as it was cheaper than Venice mainland and was actually quite nice getting the boat over everyday. One piece of advise if younger than 29 get the rolling Venice pass for 6 Euro this then allows you to get a 72 hour travel pass for all boats/busses for 22 Euro rather than 40. Breakfast was average at best and is an area to be improved. The toaster is poor and seemed to take an age to actually toast the bread and there could be a wider selection of hot food. One night during our stay I think the Tuesday night we were woken at about 2:45 am! I don't know what was going on but it sounded like some drunk people shouting swear words and fighting at the top of there lungs. This noise went on for at least half hour before I assume the culprits passed out. I would love to know what was going on and if the offenders were punished for this? In summary the hotel is acceptable but didn't blow me away.
