“Stunning from the outside but very tired on the inside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

When you get there you can't help but be impressed by the building. The staff throughout were very friendly and helpful and there is a lovely front terrace where you can chill with a drink. The double room we had on the top floor though was pretty hideous. It was decorated in pale blue with circa 1950s (and not in a good way). Very shabby and with lino on the bedroom floor and a sheet and throw instead of a duvet. The pillows were like slices of pillow - very thin. The bathroom was in natural stone so didn't age as badly but the shower leaked and flooded the floor every time.

They did however have great sky tv which you could change and watch many channels in english eg sky 1, fox etc. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. The whole hotel also oddly was littered with bunches of dried flowers which were caked in dust and should all go in the bin.

It was very quiet generally although we could clearly hear the next room occupants talking (amongst other things).

Also they do have a spa but the thai massages were priced at about 95 euros each which we thought was too expensive.

Wonderful old style hotel with dramatic exterior on main street on Lido 5 minutes from water taxi.
If you want modern glass and angular style hotel this is not for you but if you like relaxed service and comfortable surrounding this is for you. Large rooms with modern bathrooms nice public rooms and large outside terrace with bar overlooking the front. Good breakfast but average dinner restaurant, you can do better just over the road at any number of restaurants. Extremely helpful staff. 20 minutes from St Marks by water taxi so makes a nice relaxing place after a day in Venice.

Very ornate exterior, while there is a dated elegance to the interior - although the rooms with heavy drapes and furnishing in a mix of rather faded purples and deep reds would probably not suit the type of traveller used to large box-like, characterless rooms of many modern hotels
Breakfast selection average, dining room has quiet elegance and good service.
Staff very efficient and helpful.
Location on the Lido means you need to use a waterbus to get to the main attractions, but a frequent service minimises this problem and it is nice to escape to some tranqility after the noise and crowds of th main island
A spacious outside bar area provides a relaxing place to watch the world go by from a resurrected Art Nouveau era

We stayed here on a Trafalgar tour of Italy in April, 2013. The hotel has a very ornate facade and is located in a nice neighborhood in Lido. The hotel had an old world charm. The rooms were very nice, with comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the food was good. We enjoyed walking down the street toward the beach and looking in the various shops on the way, particularly a glass and chandelier shop. The hotel has a lot of old photographs in the halls depicting times related to the history of the hotel. It was a very nice hotel, and we would definitely stay there again!

Had a good 2 night stay at the Ausonia on Lido whilst on a short stay to visit Venice. It was only 10-15mins on the boat to Venice and Lido has a nice feel to it. It's also good to get out the hustle and bustle of Venice and start and end your day with some peace!

The bedrooms were big and airy as was the huge bathroom that we had in one of the rooms but the decor is traditional and the room was a bit dark. There were balconys off the room looking out over the front of the building which was nice!

The outside of the building is very impressive and lovely to look at, close to the ferry stop and right on the main road. The inside is not as impressive but still charming. The breakfast area had a lovely conservatory feel to it and served the usual continental breakfast but wouldn't rave about it - just average.

The staff were always very pleasant to deal with and let us leave our bags at the reception after checking out and there's a nice area outside the hotel to sit out and relax.

The beach isn't far away either - just a 10 min walk but again I wouldn't necessarily bother with it.

Though it is slightly away from main venice city centre, but it is a b'ful place. The journey on water bus from hotel to rest of the places in venice is very good. Hotel is 3 mins walking distance to lido beach which is also very beautiful. This hotel is truely value for money. The staff is also very helpful. I would like to stay here again.

I had the pleasure of staying in this hotel on our trip to lido. On Arrival you are met by a very beautiful looking hotel, its almost like something from a Agatha Christie Film as it has that sort of feel to it. The building itself is really impressive and admired by all. We were greated with a smile and upgraded free of charge on arrival. Our rooms were really fresh clean and in keeping with the colonial feel of the hotel very impressive. If I were to be slightly picky The only critisim I would have is that the mirrors on the original furniture have perished and its difficult to do youre make up, also hairdryers are hard to keep on while drying hair but they do do the job ladies.
The breakfast was set in what can only be described as a large glass house filled with drapes and is very light and airy. The breakfast itself had everything, including full English, fruits yoghurts you name it.
The whole hotel is like a trip back in time with a modern twist.
Lido is great place to stay and is better value for money than venice. You can get the boat straight from the airport to lido which takes about 30 mins and is 15 euro each. Lido is 10 mins by boat to venice st marks square and you can get a 2 day hopper for 48 euro. We went to st marks square it cost us 12 euro just to sit in a restuarant before we even had a drink so be warned!! We tended to come back to lido and go across the road to beautiful italian family place called parco delle rose, you cant miss it as it has flowers all over it. There are plenty of shops and supermarket near by. It is a 5 minute walk from the boat station. Ther are also bars and not forgetting the free beach that is 5 minutes away Lido has everything. Have fun Fiona and Mak P. UK
