The Management and Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our stay, was everything we had hoped it would be, would definitely stay here again, Good variety at breakfast especially enjoyed the apple cake. Well done

We so enjoyed our three day stay at the lovely Russo Palace Hotel. The Hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, always available to assist, recommend or book a restaurant. Facing the Lagoon side the Hotel is a welcome sanctuary from the multitudes on the main island. The Hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Vaporetto stop which we enjoyed as it's a lovely stroll along the waterfront. We upgraded our room to a balcony lagoon view and loved watching the fog roll in at night time and slowly clear away in the early morning. The room was a good size with a very comfortable bed, great quality linens and the bathroom though small, was newly updated and all spotlessly clean. Breakfast was typical and very good, our only complaint was the coffee - we had to make our own which I've never experienced in Italy ! Overall our stay at the Russo Palace and our experience of the Lido was fantastic - found some excellent restaurants and prices were very reasonable. Highly recommend.

This lovely hotel is only one ferry stop away from Piazza San Marco, but is a world away in setting, with no crowds or hawkers. The breakfast was excellent and the service was friendly. The hotel is right on the water and you can see the Campanile from the hotel. The hotel is a short walk from the ferry, the Lido beach, and good restaurants.

We stayed at this hotel last week. We had booked standard room but the travel agency had booked us into an economy room. Stefano was very good and offered as an alternative room but there was already someone in the room when we opened the door. Stefano was very gracious upgrading us then to a superior room. The room was not 4 star though and does not compare to other 4 star hotels at all, its more like a 3 star at best. The air conditioning didnt work but we only mentioned that to Stefano's colleague the last evening and she was not able to do anything to make it any better. The breakfast was ok again does not compare to other 4 star hotels around the world. Location is nice and quiet on waterfront. Overall the staff are very good and their customer service is great but hotel needs updating.

Stayed here with hubby for 10th wedding anniversary. Beautiful place to stay, you get to ride the boat into Venice mainland and therefore have the peace n quiet with the beauty of seeing the land done into view. Hotel breakfast only no dinner facilities, room plain and simple all that is needed. Fresh towels and bed sheets every day. Tea and coffee facilities long with bathroom shower lotions. Would def recommend staying here and if I returned I would not look elsewhere. Staff absolutely lovely and helpful def 10/0 plus 5*

Highly recommend a stay at Russo Palace on the lido. Reception staff were excellent and very helpful and breakfast had an excellent selection of cold and cooked foods. We had a balcony room with a lovely view of the Venice sights and with a 5 minute walk could jump on a vaparetto waterbus to take you over to Venice or turn left at the waterbus stop and a 5 minute walk to the beach instead. Although we loved popping over to Venice, I would not have liked to have stayed in a hotel there with the crowds and noise of the city. The lido was a world away from these crowds with peace and tranquility but lovely selection of eateries and relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely be back and Russo Palace Hotel will be top of the list! Already missing waking up to the sights of Venice, what a breathtaking city and staying on the lido allowed us a city and beach break.

We had just a fantastic Service at the Hotel Russo Palace. Mr. Stefano in the reception was absolutelly the best and made our stay marvellous stay in Lido even better. That attitude is something I wish we could copy for others as well. Alos we stayed the first 2 nights in the Basic dbl room (room nbr 4) in the reception level. The room was brilliant and we had our "own" little patio there. Of course the last night in the sea view room was great, but I would when ever take again the Basic room. Thank you Stefano to make our stay so special.

From the moment we arrived, the Russo Palace hotel was welcoming and friendly. All of the staff speak multiple languages and are very helpful. The hotel is in a fantastic location for visiting Venice, a short boat ride from all the main attractions, but away from the thronging tourist magnet of the center. Venice Lido is worth a visit on it's own and has some really nice restaurants, and is also a great starting point for a tour of the other Venetian islands. Would definitely return to Russo Palace.

We stayed here this June 2017 had a very nice time only 11min walk from the boat terminal and fist stop on the boat transfer from the airport The staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very nice and plenty of it , bed a bit firm. And bathroom a bit small but lovely view of the lagoon and we will definitely be returning again ideal place to get away from the crowds of Venice and cool of in the sea the beach is 15 min walk away

When we come to Venice mainly to visit Biennale, we normally stay at Lido because it's less crowded but also because we love the relaxed atmosphere over there. This time we choose Russo Palace and indeed we were really pleased by the kindness of the team, the accurate details and the breakfast buffet with fresh fruit and home made cakes / pancakes. Mr. Stefano gave us a very warm welcome and also very useful tips. I am sure that we will return soon
