Reviewed 25 September 2013

True, staff is friendly and helpful, breakfast fine and the Villa clean. We saw three rooms (we were three couples) and they were good, but ours at the top floor was decidedly small with creaky floors and so so furniture. There was no wi fi in the room and in the reception area it worked only occasionally. Our bathroom was on the other side of the hall and pretty rickety.
If you want to be in Venice proper, you find the Lido pretty and residential but quite a distance away. I.e.: 15 minute walk (or bus) to the vaporetto (or waterbus) and then another 40 minutes to an hour, depending on which line, to San Marco.

Service: Outstanding
Breakfast: Excellent
Rooms: Ok
Shower: A little small
Location: Great, Only 5 min bus ride (15min Walk) to the water taxi and the water taxi is the best way around Venice whether your staying in Venice or on this beautiful island of Lido. Just buy a pass for the number of days you'll be in Venice.

The price of this hotel was the reason we stayed here rather than in Venice. The short commute to Venice was worth the cost saving of finding something of equal quality and after the busyness of Venice all day Lido is a nice relaxing island.

Very good stay in a 'warm' place. Excellent connection between Hotel and Venice. Two good restaurants nearby and a brillant bakery.
Nice place to stay with family; possibility to bike (offered by hostess); nice breakfast

This was the perfect place to stay for our family holiday to Venice/Lido. Very helpful staff, good breakfasts, beautiful room. We stayed for a week in August. The Lido is a great spot to be in to get away from the hustle and bustle of Venice, good places to eat and a lovely public beach (didn't try the private beaches). Very good public transport, two minutes on the bus from the main vaperetto stop which takes you to San Marco. Get yourself a Venice travel card.

My wife and I stayed here for our honey moon in April 2012. I must say that all the places we visited were chosen thanks to Trip Advisor, and I must say we were not disappointed. The B&B is in a beautiful Island just across Venice. We got instructions on how to get there from the airport. The place is clean, nice, the people are very amicable and helpful, plus they prepare a fairly good breakfast to get your day started.
I strongly recommend this place if you are visiting Venice. The place is beautiful, peaceful and the price is very fair compared to what you would be paying in other places.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the bottom floors. It does not have an elevator, so it is quite hard going up 3...

We had a great 3-days stay. Villa Stella is charming B&B in a quiet area, with beautiful rooms (we got room with balcony :)), frendly and helpfull staff, good breakfast, good location- close to the beach and close to Venice! We realy enjoyed our stay and felt in love with Venice!

Recommend to buy Venice transport pass which can be used on Lido busses as well, we bought 3-days pass (expensive, but cheaper than buying single tickets every day). Buss stopp is near to B&B.

Managed with heart and passion, Villa Stella is a perfect hide away at Lido de Venezia. 2 minutes walking distance to the next bus stop. From there it is 3 stops to the water busses to Venezia.

Beautiful garden and individually designed rooms.

Breakfast is usually a weak spot in Italy. Not at Villa Stella. Homemade marmelade and a good variety of rolls, bread and pastries. Cold cuts, chocolate pancakes and a very good espresso...

Thank you for a very pleasant stay. We will definitely return to this beautiful hide away.
