“Cute villa in such a beauuuuuutiful island LIDO but...”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

This island is WONDERFUL , its such a beauty and the villa has a cute building , garden and rooms .although its a bit far from the water bus station ( about 15 min walk which was delightful in that lovely streets ) but that keeps it so quite in a lovely area . Our room was on second floor ,so cozy and comfortable but unfortunately no safe box and no fridge ( which is a huge disappointment for travelers ), breakfast was OK , not a big deal - delicious croissants though ! but the breakfast room was so comfortable and charming .
THE ONLY SUPER SUPER BIG ISSUE of this beautiful house is the RUDE owner ! what a shame ! he is NOT FRIENDLY AT ALL ! he makes you feel like you're staying there free of charge ! he sure needs to change his attitude if he wants to stay in this business / dealing with customers !!
but if you try not to see him ! everything else is great .

delicious croissants

Room Tip: choose upper floor rooms , good view & quit

when we first came to the hotel, i was surprized by the distance, cause we walked quite far and need to asked more than 4 persons to finally reach this hotel. we were welcomed by a nice woman who barely speak english. but them came to us a man, i believed it's the owner which we find him not friendly at all. first day arrived the room was not ready, the nice women cleaned it up meanwhile we were waiting. the third day she did not clean the room, maybe because we left the room at 12.30 in the afternoon. the breakfast was fine and again it's only the woman who cleaned the room was nice and greet us. luckily we found ourselves that you can take a bus to the port instead of walking more or less 2km

Villa Albertina. What a name! And what disappointment once you see this Pension (thats the official name on their invoice!). The brochure’s and website pictures and text show space and taste. They talk of breakfast and lounge room. Reality is NO lounge room. There was never one, it was only part of the breakfast room. And now it is office space behind cupboards forming a wall. All looks like the reception of a Camping ground office. Asked for, the owner replied: „We have a beautiful garden, you can sit outside.“ Thanks for this. It is fraud, simple fraud. More to add: The romantic honeymoon dinner was reduced to a halfboard dinner, restricted in price. The whole reception and breakfast room is virtually plastered with personal pictures of this man and his family: Suntanned, in bathers, on the beach, waving, drinking, with kids and without. Like a tasteless home! Come to Venice, it is great! Leave out this villa with parking garden. It is no reward!

Dear Sir,

we refer to your comment about your stay this summer which has made us feel sad as we always do our upmost to make our clients feel happy and their stay with us in Villa Albertina and Venice as wonderful and unforgettable as possible!
Villa Albertina is a family run, small B&B Hotel, and this is exactly what we are publishing in internet! Guests who normally come to stay with us are in fact looking for a warm, familiar atmosphere, a good breakfast in an especially spacious and bright breakfast room, a clean and nice room in a romantic, typical Venetian Villa, a nice flowered garden where to take a rest and relax, to get suggestions for what to do or where to go in Venice, etc etc!
My husband, myself, and the small staff of the hotel (Andrea, Marinela, Kry, Katia) love our job and try to feel our guests like at home, also speaking in most languages (English, German, French, Spanisch, Russian, Rumanian,....)!
I do not think that it offends someone to see A FEW fotos of nice Exotic countrysides, or nice carribean beaches, or some fotos of our children in our breakfast room ..Infact, this homely atmosphere is appreciated by most of our clients, and every day we get comments of our guests telling us how much they do like this!
You had reserved one of our romantic honeymoonpackages including one 3course dinner in a nice restaurant. The restaurant "La Tavernetta" is just around the corner, and they are run as well in a very kind and familiar way, with Ottavio who offers a perfect service (better than in many gourmet restaurants) and an exquiste kitchen. For a 3 course dinner of course they offer a choice of 3-4 starters and 3-4 main dishes to choose (fish or meat). There was never published that the dinner would be à la carte, but the choice was as well very various and the quality very special. Also Ottavio and his family (Mum and Dad) have remained very sad and surprised that their good choice and quality of excellent venetian or tuscany kitchen had not been appreciated by you!
Of course a family run small Venetian Villa offers a completely different type of accommodation as a large, 5-star Palace-Hotel, a different kind of service and also a different kind of (lower)rates!
I suggest you to reserve next time at least in a 4 star hotel, maybe even a chain hotel, so everything is more standardised and less "familiar". But maybe a bit more expensive....

Best regards

We chose this villa because of its typical flair. The only sleeps 2 room is right at the entrance, which means you will get all the noise of late homecomers. The bathtub was missing the plug and the window sills were moldy. Breakfast consists of very dry and old breads, not much choice in cheese or else. On top of that, any question asked was commented with a grunty "hmmm" noise. It was my boyfriends birthday, so I had bought a surprise cake. The owner said its OK to put it into the breakfast room fridge. After serving it I stored the leftovers in the same fridge. The blonde elder breakfast-lady yelled at me for touching the fridge and an hour later half the cake was thrown out. I will never, ever step foot into this dorm again!!!

Room Tip: only upstairs rooms are good, sleeps 3 min.

Dear Sir,

of course we grant all our reservations, but in order to guarantee the reservation we need a valid credit card number! If the card number does not work for guarantee (to make a preauthorisation on the card), then we contact the client immediately (also 2-3 times) in order to send us another card number! If there is no response to all our requests, and we have never got any direct contact of the client, then unfortunately we cannot guarantee the reservation as there are so many fake reservations through internet!

We went to Villa Albertina for the Venice Carnaval.

Nice:
- you can avoid the noise of Venice and stay at Lido - it is quiet
- nice walks at the beach and the winter sun
- nice breakfast

No good:
- staff is not going to go an extra mile to make the customer happy...they actually couldn't be bothered less. Having a guesthouse is clearly a revenue for the owners and not a passion and while we cannot really complain by anybody being particularly rude to us we cannot say anything nice about the service either.
- quite old fashioned rooms

If staying at Lido and want to go to a restaurant to go AI MURAZZI!!! EXCELLENT food and service if you like the simple but soulful style of food...
