Recent guest reviews

The hotel was amazing, spotlessly clean in contemporary style, the bathroom was new and modern and so was the air conditioning. The furniture was really good quality and the beds very comfortable. The buffet breakfast had lots of options and was always fresh and tasty. We stayed for 3 nights following a 3 night stay in Venice, the Lido is very relaxing and the people are friendly. Our hotel room overlooked Venice with amazing sun set views over the City. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It's a fabulous little hotel and excellent value. I will stay there again and would highly recommend it.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for two nights in June. The hotel was spotlessly clean throughout, and at all times. All staff we came into contact with were extremely polite and friendly and couldn't have done more to help! We arrived earlier than check in and went to ask if we could leave our bags there, but were told our room was ready and we were able to check in over two hours early. The breakfast was lovely, a varied selection of croissants, yoghurts, meats and cheeses. We explained we had to leave early on our day of departure, so a breakfast basket was left in our room the night before, which was perfect! I would highly recommend staying here!

Good location nearby ferry service to Venice and Marco Polo Airport. Rooms quiet, tidy and clean, also well air conditioned. Friendly staff. Hotel contacted us before arrival and face information If checking on later than 22:00. Excellent service.

The hotel's location was just perfect for a holiday combining leisure time in Lido and sightseeing in Venice. Marco Polo Airport was an hour by Alilaguna waterbus and the vaporetto to Venice departed right from the opposite of the hotel (SME). Everything was easily accessible on foot from the hotel. Thank you for the wonderful and convenient experience!

The hotel is located just a few metres from the vaporetti station on the Lido, and is part of a small square lined with family-run restaurants where you can sit quietly with a drink and/or pizza and people-watch. Our room looked out on this square and to the Venice skyline - beautiful. The water in between is always a hive of activity, and you have to take the vaporetti to get to Venice proper, a great experience in itself. If you prefer to stay on the Lido there is a great sandy beach and plenty of good bars and places to eat. On a previous visit to Venice we stayed in the city itself but, hands down, the Lido is much better; quieter, cleaner, cheaper, friendlier and only a 10 - 15 minute boat ride away. Lovely, helpful staff with good english; free wifi. We plan to return in the near future.

It was very simple to go there from the airport by boat. Nice restaurant with the same name was next door. Lido differs much from Venice. It is easy to go to the historical centre on Venice from Lido.

it could be have a better breakfast, and less noise especially at night (with ring bell disturbs). Enough good bed and the room 204 has no view unfortunately. Opposite the water bus stop is very convient and lido island it worths a visit.

Great place, nice staff. The breakfast was good with many choices, cereal, fruit, sliced meats and cheeses, pastries, coffee bar and juices. Located on the lido island which require taking the vaporetto to come and go. Great way to come into the city each morning. .

I really liked it here. Fab location just by the waterbus stop. After a day out in Venice proper, it was so great to just take a couple of mins to get to my room from the vaporetto... No lift here, but there is a stair chairlift, so I would contact the hotel if you have disability needs and I'm sure they'll do all they can to assist. Room was just a photo's, good condition and exceptionally clean. Fridge in room which is always appreciated. Free Wifi excellent. Staff were very helpful and friendly, especially the room ladies and Elisa!! Thank you! I love Venice, and I also love the Lido. I tend to choose the Lido when Venice is busier as you have a bit of space and can paddle at the beach!! Recommend this hotel, I'm sure I'll be returning.

Great location, with great friendly and helpful staff. Its a no frills hotel but has a great location less than 100 yards from the Water bus station. The fact you are on Lido added to the trip as you have great fun on the Vaperettos and you can get away from the hoards. The hotel is close to the main centre of Lido so there are many restaurants and ice creams bars etc that you can visit. My wife and i were very happy with our stay at the hotel and Lido.
