Pleasant Villa Hotel in Good Location
Posted May 19, 2016
This was our 1st trip to Venice and we chose to stay on Lido after reading reviews; we weren't disappointed. The staff were all excellent; friendly, helpful and pleasant . The vaporetto stop was an easy, flat walk away and the service was frequent and reliable. We bought a 72 hour pass so we could hop on and off whichever lines we chose over that period. continuing past the hotel was a lovely beach area - very quiet at this time of year. A variety of restaurants and bars were just around the corner from the hotel, generally offering better value for money than those in Venice city.
Breakfast was 'do it yourself' with hot water, milk, coffee, juices, eggs and a pan of hot water, cheese ham, cereals, fruit , rolls, bread, toaster, butter , jams. This suited us fine.
Our room was comfortable, but a bit 'tired'. We requested extra pillows and these were provided straight away. We had two small balconies which were pleasant to sit on with a drink. There was a mini bar in the room with water, soft drinks and beer. The prices were expensive, but between the vaporetto stop and the hotel was a supermarket 'Conads' so we bought water etc in there and cooled them in our mini bar, leaving the original contents untouched.
There is access to wifi in the lobby and on the terrace but, unfortunately, not in the bedrooms.
There was a mirror in the bathroom and a full- length one in the entrance to the room, but one over the dressing table would have been useful.
We would return, though !
