Really a big disappointment, this hotel is not a 4 star hotel. The rooms are totally dated for a 4 star, plus it is well mentioned that there is a private parking ... FALSE, there is a course where you will find 5 parking spaces. I used to go in a 5 star hotel, the service is really a big disappointment. I thought there was going to be a minimum of service but no. The reception pretended to empathize with us, with no resolution to the problems. Example: no more free place for the evening of December 31st. When I called them 5 days in advance to find out if I could already booked. They confirmed that I could book at the hotel. But then, at the hotel, they told me "sorry, no more places". It was just a fake news to enroll more client, while they knew that there was already no place.

A very nice and calm hotel on the calm Lido Island. Rooms very clean. Friendly staff and good breakfast. A short walk away from the public water transport where u can cross to the charming city of venice. All in all good and recommended.

We stayed here for 5 nights. Lovely building, great breakfast and very helpful staff. It is nice to be away from the busy Venice centre but you will have to take the boat every time you want to go to Venice. Free bike hire, so we did a 3,5 hour bike ride around Lido.

We started out tour of Venice here on Lido, the Villa Mabapa was quaint and charming . The rooms are small, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast each morning is included. Nice outdoor bar area for evening drinks, and it is located directly across from the water. Easy walk into town, great little place away from the busy city of Venice.

Stayed there as part of a Gate 1 tour. The hotel seemed clean but we were in the main building, The rooms were small and the bathroom needs to be redone. Unfortunately we are used to American standards. The breakfast was fine and had broad assortment of food.

Had a really nice time here with my daughter. Great to be away from the hustle and bustle of Venice. Breakfast was great. Staff were very helpful. Room was quite modest in size so wish we'd arranged for an upgrade. We liked the availability of bikes free of charge to explore the Lido.

This hotel was one of the very best we stayed at during our trip to Italy. The staff was great and they even brought the bar outside after dinner so everyone could enjoy a wonderful summer night. The hotel was also very clean and was close to a 5-star hotel.

Quaint hotel quiet but the breakfast is the WORST ever. Bruised fruit stale grains no still water warm juice. Runny scrambled eggs and half cooked hard boiled eggs. And no they weren’t soft boiled. Dinner was good but if you’re expecting to fuel up for the day go elsewhere or to a supermarket and get better quality food.

We stayed here two nights with Gate 1. There are 40 people in our group. Our room, 206, was up four, short flights of stairs. There is a very small elevator to use, especially good with luggage. Room was ready when we arrived from airport. There is free WiFi throughout hotel. AC is okay, but not up to US standards, so I was warm even though we were able to put the thermostat down to 6 Celsius. Breakfast is good with a wide assortment of pastries, desserts, lunch meats, cheeses, breads, fruit and yoghurt. Scrambled and hard boiled eggs were also available. Location is great: across the street from the water, a few blocks from a supermarket, a few more blocks to the downtown area, and a few more blocks to the beach.

Beautiful hotel, with a garden setting which is exquisite on a summer evening when candles rest on outdoor tables and around the patio, a great place for an evening meal, but best take the mosquito repellent during the warm season. Rooms have patio's facing water or gardens and are quite large, furnishing throughout is lovely, continental breakfast or large American breakfast, and European or Italian menu for evening. Staff were very good the hotel was clean and it was a break away from the rush and noise of Venice.
