                  Very nice staff , clean rooms , breakfast far above italian fashion (buffet) meats , cheeses, fruit etc. and if asked for also a fresh italian cafe latte or capucchino!!, very good priced small bar. We liked it and would like to come back.

                  10.0

                  we found the hotel spacious, comfortable and relaxing. The staff were courteous and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful. After a strenuous day in Venice it was lovely to cross the lagoon (15 minutes) and relax in the pretty garden with a drink.

                  No complaints. I have not read the reviews so I cannot comment but we enjoyed every aspect of this hotel

                  service was great, problem fixed straight away. room was spotless, breakfast plentiful and staff very polite. Nice touch having books to read (but only 1 in english!)

                  breakfasts got a bit boring. ie same bread always and only apples for fruit. Internet not working, which might have been a problem if volcanic ash had got my flight cancelled.

                  The hotel met its purpose - primarily to sleep. Friendly, pleasant and helpful staff. Pleasant relaxing location with easy access to main land and other islands. Transport good both buses and water buses. Good selection of places to eat and drink. Beach in walking distance.

                  All the hotel staff from the reception to the cleaners were exceptional. The reception staff at this lovely hotel were extremely helpful when we were stranded due to the volcanic eruption. We have stayed in this hotel before and will do so again. We would definately recommend it to friends.N

                  8.2

                  Convenient location on the Lido, close to the water bus station, and also only a short walk to the beach. Pleasant, friendly, helpful staff with good English.

                • Couple
                  7.4

                  Very good location, right next to the vaporetto stop (ferrys). It was very convenient to visit the sights in Venice and return for beach or dinner in Lido. The room was very basic but had a window overlooking the main street and the sea (which was a huge plus). However, would recommend using ear plugs if visiting during weekend (a lot of traffic and noises). Lido itself has a lot of restaurants and cafes thus breakfast is not needed in this hotel.

                  8.2

                  Excellent location, 2 minutes walk to water taxi. Very helpful staff. Rooms basic but value for money. Overall very nice stay... We would love to stay here again.

                  This is our second time at this Hotel. Room sizes vary. Last year room and shower room was small with a view, this time we had a lovely large room with large bathroom and no view. This was better for us as it was at the side of the hotel and quieter! Air conditioning very effective. This is a very good value hotel in a great location.

                • Couple
                  5.4

                  good location, within a minute's walk from the vaporetto stop and walking distance to shops and restaurants

                  small rooms, tiny bathroom, where one large physique may simply not fit. the hotel is quite old, sound in the room practically no. as well as wi-fi for 6 euros per hour and extremely unfriendly pesonal at reception

                  7.0

                  It is very close to the vaporetto docks.

                  The smelt of the room. It was terrible.

                  Not a thing

                  Horrible!!! The staff was extremely rude. The hotel was too far from the attractions and you will end up spending a lot of money for transit. When I was there, the light in the bathroom was broken and I called them up for repair, the receptionist told me there was nothing he could do, wait until tomorrow. Come on, I all need bathroom before we go to sleep and plus I was to check out the day after, would I require the repair then? Think!!! The day after when I checked out the other lady was so rude, she acted as if we were begging for service. What a joke!!! Three star hotel??? What a rubbish!!! I highly recommend you all to stay away from this horrible hotel. Honestly I would rather stay in a hostel or on the street than this stressful place.

                  Proximity to the vaporetto station, nice deign, friendly staff.

                  Never take room facing the street - no sound proof, night street bustle and hustle will turn your rest into a nightmare. The hotel is an old one - shutting doors give vibration all around, so that you feel as if someone entering your room while it's just a neighboring door. Vibration also comes from outside motocars noise. Wi-Fi is 6 euros per hour and works poorly.

                • Couple
                  6.2

                  It's quite good location, 2 mins walking distance from the Lido ferry station.Also the staff are very friendly.

                  The hotel room is a little too small and old fashioned.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  Proximity to Vaporetta was excellent making travel to the city a pleasure. Room size exceeded our expectations. Close to a variety of eating establishments & wonderfully stocked supermarket. Staff very helpful when my husband required medical attention. Easy access to the beach. Quiet location away from city rush.
