Villa Albertina
Ranked #17 of 20 Lido di Venezia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 March 2013

Well for a start this 'hotel' isnt in Venice, its a boat ride followed by a good walk or bus journey which can be very expensive. Although public transport is very frequent and convenient. Dont get a taxi it will cost you alot!
The hotel is a box, a pretty basic and empty box. I had to go to a shop to buy a special 3 plug adaptor (linear not triangle) to get any electric as there isnt a single plug socket in your room however a shaving socket in the bathroom.
There wasnt any staff to be seen after breakfast so dont expect any service, however our brief interactions were friendly.
Vegitarians are very welcome at the hotel as no pigs were harmed in the making of breakfast- you wont even get a smell of bacon on a morning. Very continental breakfast.
Lido itself where the hotel is may be nice however has one main street and dont hang around everything shuts at 10 ish.
Venice is beautiful! Well worth the trip gorgeous buildings with amazing history and stories.
Verdict- go to Venice at any cost but stay in Venice itself!

Hi there!
We had a nice and warm holiday at Villa Albertina last December! The lovely B&B is located in a beautiful and quiet area in Lido di Venezia, easy to travel and visit local amenities, within walking distance to all transports. We enjoyed staying in the hotel, because we found it very familiar...nice and friendly staff and owners, good-size and clean rooms, working bathrooms, delicious breakfasts and nice garden! Their car park space was very useful for us, as well. Good value for money! We are looking forward to our next holiday in Venice and we'll definitely come back to V.A. We highly recommend it to our friends! Well done, Villa Albertina!

Room Tip: In general every room is ok, but in my opinion, rooms upstairs are better than at the basement. ;)

Last summer I was in Lido di Venezia. I was staying all my vacation in Villa Albertina.I would like to say that this is in enchanting place with intelligent,,nice employees and accomodation at a high level. Hospitallity is one of the best I ever saw, also they offer touristic information for tourists witch is wonderfull because in Lido di Venezia every year come a lot of tourists from another countries,so information they offer is an usefull one, Also the food we were served in this hotel is very tasty and healthy. My opinion is that Villa Albertina is a wonderfull choice if you want to visit Lido di Venezia!<3

We stayed at the Albertina in October for 3nights. I have refrained from writing a review up until now because we were so disappointed and I think my commments would have been much more scathing and uncomplimentary had I written this sooner. A friend recommended this B&B to us but it is not one of Venice's finest and I would think that there are plenty of other B&B's or small hotels of a similar price and of better value to be found on the Lido
On arrival at the Lido on our first night we had to take a taxi from the waterbus station as no directions were provided. It is supposedly a 10 minute walk but in truth it took us 20?25 minutes on subsequent walks to and from the station. At the B&B we were greeted by a member of staff who couldn't speak a great deal of English but tried hard to make herself understood. She showed us up to our room on the 1st floor and informed us what time breakfast was. The room and ensuite bathroom was to be fair, of a good size, quiet and moderately clean. However on closer inspection it definately could have done with a lick of paint and there were several remains of squashed mosquitos on the walls. It was very sparsly furnished and equipped with very few hangers in the wardrobe, not enough drawers for clothes, no tea/coffee making facilities and no hair dryer. I had to ask for and was grudgingly given an extra pillow as only 2 very wafer thin ones were provided.The bathroom was the best part about the room with a good shower and plentiful towells which were changed daily.
Breakfast didn't start until 8.30 which we thought was a bit late especially for those like us who wanted to get across to Venice early before the crowds ascended. It was adequate but certainly didn't fill you up enough to face a day of walking round Venice. It consisted of 1 croissant brought to your table by a member of staff and a buffet of ham, cheeses, yoghurts and a selection of biscuits, breads and cake ( which incidentally was the same left over cake for the duration of our stay). There was also a variety of teas, fruit juices and coffee to help yourself to as well.
We didn't realy have the pleasure of meeting or speaking to the owners of the Albertina until our final day when it came to pay the bill.She had put in a brief appearance in the breakfast room on the previous morning but didn't inroduce herself or greet any of the guests with any civility. Her husband took our payment but didn't attempt to make any conversation or ask us about our stay.
So all in all if a clean basic room is sufficient for your needs then maybe the Albertina would be ideal for you but it wasn't cheap or friendly. Bear in mind also that the cost of the vaparetto across to Venice is a hefty 7 euros per person per trip so that all adds up. I definately won't be recommending the Villa Albertina to any of my friends and not surprisingly we shan't be returning.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side are quieter with less street noise. I would also recommend taking a travel kettle...

Located on the island of Lido, this provided a quiet place to relax after a day of exploring Venice. It does require a 20 minute ride by waterbus to Venice, however, as well as a 15 minute walk (or bus ride on an often crowded public bus) from the waterbus station to the hotel. The rooms weren't as sound proof as one could hope, but they were clean and a good size, and the shower worked well. Breakfast consisted of pastries, toast, cereal, yogourt, cheese, and cold cuts.

We made a guaranteed booking for a room for one of their second-floor suites, having been warned of the horrible conditions in the basement. Still, we arrived and were shown immediately to the basement - like a dungeon: terrible, dark, ugly and smelling - really - of open sewage. This room was the most disgusting I have ever seen (or smelled).

Then they refused to refund our money. So we went to another much nicer hotel nearby (for cheaper) and resolved to dispute the charge with our credit card.

And then, months later, we hear from our credit card that the Villa Albertina was claiming that we actually stayed there!

The lesson? Even if you get one of their nicer rooms, these people are liars and thieves. Do NOT stay in this total tourist trap!!

Room Tip: If you want a good room - try another hotel.

We spent 3 nights at the Villa Albertina and found the hotel to be excellant, great position for exploring venice, 10mins walk to the water bus that took you over to St Marks square. Great place for some chill out time on the beach after walking around Venice. The hotel was very comfortable, clean sheets and towels every day, the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was excellant, especially the marble cake!!

Room Tip: We had a family room for 4 people, lots of space.
