So disappointed. This hotel has so much history and from the front looks so grand. But in reality it's old fashioned, cold, with no atmosphere and a boat ride away from Venice!! Our room was large but old fashioned, and if you crammed your neck you could see the beach. Breakfast was very basic. Customer service was non existent and the free boat over to Venice was often packed and you sometimes had to walk 10 mins away to get it due to the tides. The pool hadn't been used for years, it was full of mould and leaves the whole place looked like it was about to close.
This was an expensive hotel, and I wouldn't rate it more than a 2 star. Would definitely not stay here again. Oh and there is really nothing to see or do on the Lido, so go stay in Venice!!
