Enotel Lido - Is there a library there?

Hi, we are spending 2 weeks at this hotel next month, and I do like to read a lot on holiday. Do I need to bring all my own books, or is there any facility to exchange books in English here?

Less books in luggage means MORE SHOES!!!

Not sure about Enotel Lido but the English Church has a huge amount of English books available, coffee morning Saturdays or 11.00am Mass Sunday. Most hotels have libraries though so you shouldn't have a problem.

Shoes - just a but of advise, leave the stilettos at home, the pavements are not good for them, they are uneven and mostly constructed from mosaic... stick with low heels or wedges.

Agree with Flowercity. Good selection of books at the English Church. There is no need to use up valuable packing space with paperbacks. Why not bring a Kindle? Other e-books are of course available.

Thank you all for your posts, and your help. I will try the library at the English Church if all else fails.

Flower city: thanks for your tip regarding suitable footwear. I don't wear stilettos (a bit long in the tooth, if you know what I mean), but will make sure I pack a couple of pairs of comfy walking shoes.

hi, there is a small library at the enotel in reception, but on the 5th floor at the saga lounge a much better choice, if you are not staying with saga, if you ask the rep nicely and offer a book to swap i would like to think that would,nt be a problem, they are most helpful . also when guests are leaving after long stays ,you would be spoilt for choice. hope this helps.
