“Nice Place to stay”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

We stayed there for 4 Nights for a trip to Venice and the enviroment. Our basic room was clean and the staff was very friendly. Hotel is located on the lagoon side of the lido (at night you can see the lights of venice) and we had to walk about 10 minutes to the waterbus stop.The hotel ist a good basecamp for trips to Venice and we would use it again.

Enjoyed our trip to Venice. Stayed at Lido as better value for money and the beaches are lovely to walk along. Also good for visiting Pellestrina.

The hotel was good although for some people can be more than a stroll to the vaporetta. There are buses to catch. Bus B or in the evening the Bus G.

We chose the double room and were pleasantly surprised to have a balcony. Quiet room and lovely to view a garden after walking round Venice. The staff were friendly and helpful. My husband likes to have tomato sauce with his scramble egg and the waiters/resses were always efficient to bring the sauce over to the table. Nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel arranges a trip to Murano each day and we had a lovely boat trip to Murano and a tour of the glass factory.

Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of September, I loved the fact with this hotel you was so close to the beach to have a beach holiday but you can easily pop over to Venice anytime. The hotel is typical italian in style with lovely hotel grounds, yes the rooms are a little basic but if you want modern id go stay at a Hilton & pay their prices. The staff are outstanding at this hotel & made our stay even more special. The breakfast was also very good. We flew with Ryanair to Treviso & caught the Barzi bus directly outside the arrivals hall to Venice it takes 45 mins & is quicker than the buses which you can buy tickets for from Ryanair, the bus took us to P. de la Roma, you can then get the waterbus from P de la Roma to the Lido but it does takes 45 mins to 1 hour.. a watertaxi would cost EUR100. The hotel is a 10 min walk from the Lido stop turn left out of the Vaperetto & walk along the front youll see the hotel on the right.

Today is our very last day in Venice after 3 great days staying here in Lido. It is so easy to get around with the water buses from here but what is really great is the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean and the staff are great-especially Umberto!! From the very beginning, he has taken care of our every need and is just a very helpful lovely man who has made our stay very enjoyable, not to mention how impressed we were at his knowledge of 7 languages!!!! Thank you for a great time.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Nice hotel with comfortable and clean rooms. I guess some people may find it a bit of a walk from the centre of Lido, but for me it was a lovely stroll along a stunning waterfront. I like lido as it provides a haven away from the hustle and bustleof Venice and there are some lovely places to eat which cater for all price ranges. Hotel restaurant is nice and fairly standard in terms of pricing for restaurants on Lido (cafe bars are cheaper). For a 4 star I would like to see free wifi, but that isn't a major problem.

We stayed here for three days on our way back from a Tuscan holiday. We did the same last year and liked it so much that returning was a no-brainer.

Venice is wonderful, but extremely crowded in Summer. Staying on the Lido means getting away from the crowds in the evenings, more affordable places to eat, more Italians than foreigners around you, a lovely beach, taking your car with you to the hotel, and all of that just 10 minute walk along the seafront plus a beautiful 10 minute boat ride from San Marco square!

The hotel itself is situated just a few hundred metres from the ferry landing, on the seafront with lovely views of Venice. It has a shady garden in front, where meals and drinks are served. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially Umberto at reception, who seems to speak about a hundred languages! All rooms we had (there was nine of us, two families) were good, well appointed and tastefully furnished. Just the shower temperature was a bit erratic, that is all. Breakfast is very good, certainly by Italian standards. If you want to have some beach time, book it at the hotel. Renting seats and umbrellas on the beach is way more expensive. The beach is good fun, with mostly Italian clientele.

I cannot comment on lunch or dinner, since we ate elsewhere, but otherwise I cannot think of a better place to stay when in Venice!

My wife, 8-year-old son, and I had a thoroughly pleasant stay at the Villa Mababa. It exceeded our expecations on all levels: hospitality, excellent service, and friendly, well informed staff. Special thanks to Michele D'Antonio for his kindness and consideration, and also to Gianni and other staffers who made our stay memorable. We will surely return.
