“Delightful hotel on the beautiful island of Lido”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My husband before sending a cruise visiting this hotel.The hotel is lovely! Well-kept grounds of the hotel is surrounded by greenery and flowers. Breakfast at the request of guests, transferred out of the room into the fresh air. The room we had a small but very tastefully furnished. Gorgeous green glass chandelier moire combined with beautiful curtains and bedspread on large, comfortable beds. The bathroom was large with a jacuzzi tub and a huge mirror in the wall. Breakfast brought us into the room. The smell of coffee, great serving breakfast pastries and fresh cause us excellent appetite. The historic center of Venice, get on a boat for 10 minutes.

Room Tip: A small family hotel and all the rooms are good!

We were so lucky to be recommended this location for our wedding in May. We had the entire B&B for 2 days and cannot recommend it enough. It turned out to be a fairytale wedding in the most romantic surroundings. Marika, Stefano and Mariana were exceptionally helpful with everything from the whole event planning (since we live in Norway), arranging hairdresser to come to the location, decorating the garden and making food worthy a king. On short notice they managed to arrange a private tour to the Seguso factory on Murano island for glass making and organizing an amazing lunch. We are forever grateful for your contributions and we will definetly come back some day.

My daughter and I spent a few days here last week and it wasn't long enough by far. We were impressed by the cleanliness of the room. Presentation and attention to detail was brilliant. The garden was a fantastic haven of tranquillity, filled with the natural perfume of the 200 foot Jasmine hedge. An absolutely wonderful place to be served your breakfast. Our welcome by Marika and Stefan made us feel right at home. The quiet island of Lido suited us, we didn't feel far from Venice, a 5 minute walk to the Valporetti and then just 10 minutes on the number 1 waterbus to St Mark's Square. we booked our 72 hour waterbus ticket in advance so we didn't have to buy tickets every time and it proved to be extremely good value for money, we hopped on the Valporetti to go everywhere. Can't wait for a return stay, for longer this time.

Staying at Villa Ines is like coming home! It’s located in a very quiet place in Lido Island, yet not far from the shops and restaurants in the center. We rented the apartment and had the most delightful and peaceful vacation.
The apartment has been recently remodeled: it’s tastefully decorated and immaculately clean.
The staff do take care of their guests with love and charm! They gave us tips where to go (dinner, beaches, sightseeing etc) and were always friendly from the heart.
In Villa Ines you can see the love to detail (garden, rooms, etc) and their kindness is not fake like in some big chain hotels. If you want a beautiful place to relax away from the noise and chaos, with nice beaches close by, then you should definitely come here!

The place is VILLA INES b&b in Lido (venice)
Loved loved loved this place! My family and I stayed here for a few days in April and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The apartment is newly refubrished, with high quality furniture and fine decor. Superb garden views!

All the staff were very attentive and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable!

Would highly recommend it and we are already planning on staying more days on our next visit.

First I would like to mention Stefano. He is just so kind and nice! very helpful and friendly.
The B&B ia located under the pwners house...unfortenatly, it was not mentioned any where that during our visit, there will be renovation going on. So the noise of drilling and hammer striking through walls woke us up Early on Saturday morning. we were hoping to get up a little later on our last day in Venice.

Room Tip: ask if there is any renovations going on...

Villa Ines B&B has great reviews and 5 star ratings, but if you are looking to book the 3 bedroom self apartment, be aware that none of these apply. There are no photos of the apartment on the website, which is understandable because it is utterly squalid, and frankly should not be let out until it has been decorated and refurnished. I’m all for a bit of faded charm, but this is just plain grotty.

We paid $400 per night for accommodation so depressing, it’s hard to know where to start. The apartment is vast, but that is the only redeeming feature. Walls and ceilings are damp and stained, windows are falling apart, and large patches of flooring are missing with patches of grubby carpet covering the bare concrete.

One of the bedrooms has a working lift with a wardrobe jammed in front of it, so you can’t actually sleep in there because it’s not a bedroom, it’s a foyer, with the lift clanking and the light flashing through the night.

The rooms are hardly furnished at all. There were two tiny sofas at opposite ends of the huge living room that were both so grubby uncomfortable we actually preferred to sit on pillows on the floor. One couch had broken metal button fixings which were razor sharp so dangerous for our toddler to sit on.

No bedside lights in the bedrooms, there are no functioning wardrobes, because one is full of broken safes and the other is a too narrow for coat hangers. IN The apartment is full of broken grubby old minibars – I counted 5.

The kitchen was missing even the most basic equipment, no coffee maker, no wine glasses, no tea towels, and no cooking dishes, which could be used in the oven. The ‘glasses’ were scratched plastic, and there were a few bits of prison-style cutlery.

In bizarre contrast to the scrap furniture, all the rooms have vast vintage Murano chandeliers hanging from the ceiling but there are no other lights, by the beds or in the living room on side tables, just overhead glare, so the effect in the evenings is incredibly bleak.

The bathrooms were like those in a decent travellers hostel, no bath, just a couple of showers which were so weak I actually ended up washing my hair in the sink. We were provided with 3 small, raggy little towels between the 3 of us.

When I complained to the hotel proprietor Marika that the website is misleading because it has no pictures of the apartment, her response was bizarre and borderline hysterical. At first she said I was ‘stupid’ for not looking at the photos on the website, when I pointed out that none of them were of the apartment (she appeared not to be aware of this) Marika said I should have looked at photos which appear on other websites. She said I had been sent a PDF with photos of the apartment when I booked, but this was not true. Marika then started reading me all the glowing reviews of the B&B, as if they were in any way relevant to the dreadful apartment. In the end, her justification for the vast price was that the apartment is large, but two of the bedrooms were unusable. And anyway, who on earth wants to stay in a huge and horrible holiday apartment?

The only redeeming feature of our stay was the wonderful manager Stefano, who was utterly kind and thoughtful and charming and went out of his way to help make our stay comfortable, bringing wine glasses and lamps and cooking utensils and blankets. He was clearly used to dealing with complaints, and did so with genuine care. The cleaners were also wonderful and did their best to make the place habitable. All stars in our review go to these guys.

In the end Marika offered us a discount, reducing the week’s bill by £200, but this didn’t make up for the fact that this was our most expensive and uncomfortable holiday to date.

We have been visiting Venice for years, both for holidays and for work, and this was a uniquely unpleasant experience.

Room Tip: Pick another hotel.

Dear Guest I am happy you found our staff professional and attemptive , they have been working with us for many years and we are proud that our style come through .

In reference to your complain, we cannot accept false information been said nor offense, we never insulted anybody unlike you did also in your review , we apologize anyway if the apartment was not what you expected, the only 2 things we can say are :

FIRST ) on June 6th 2013 we received your enquire from HOLIDAY LETTINGS ,(the web site where we display the apartment with full description and 10 pictures see the link www.holidaylettings.co.uk/rentals/venice,-veneto/142952
your mail of enquire was :" Dear Ines, we are a family of three (myself, my husband and our 3 year old son) and we are looking for an apartment to rent for 1 week, ideally from October 1st -7th (but any 7 day period from September 24th - October 7th would be fine). I have actually visited your wonderful apartment before, when it was rented to my friend/colleague photographer Nick D., and was delighted to find it on trip advisor. I would be very grateful if you could let me know ASAP whether it is available for this period, and what the rental would be. Many thanks, Nora M."

Seemed to us you knew exactly what to expect therefore not necessary other information; upon your arrival apparently right after a surgery session your husband had , you made clear with many request you were not happy . Myself and my husband come and gave you everything you requested. The Price of the apartment (with 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom , normally hosting 6 guest) was 250€ per day (not 400). At the end of your stay we offer you an extra 10% discount and no charge of any extra as a courtesy.
