After leaving the vaporetto and walking the few hundred metres up the main street the Art Nouveau external appearance of this hotel lifts the spirits and promises much. However the interior in many areas does not match expectations. The dining room and terrace are very good but our bedroom looked a bit jaded - in particular the lighting was poor and at night it was difficult to read and there was also a lack of comfortable seating.
Breakfast was very ordinary and completely self-service including coffee from a machine which personally I dislike.
Situated on the Lido it is a quarter hour vaporetto ride to the nearest station to St Marks. A 24 hour ticket with unlimited usage costs 20 Euros. When choosing an hotel for a short visit to Venice this cost and time factor should be taken into account because (certainly out of season) there is nothing to merit a visit to the Lido otherwise.
