If you are visiting Venice then I'd recommend staying on the Lido and not in the city itself. But I'd be hard pressed to recommend this hotel.
It's location is excellent as its only a very short walk to the water bus. The hotel itself on first appearances is ok but the room we stayed in for three nights was anything but. As soon as we entered the room we noticed a damp smell and reported it straight away. Later we were told they'd checked and everything was to their satisfaction only to find that on our last night when it was raining the window leaked and the carpet was wet.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hotel Rigel, built in the 60's, is situated on one of the most important islands of Venice. Its importance and uniqueness are due to being the only one facing the Adriatic Sea on one side and on the other the basin of St. Mark's, just before the historical Square of St.Mark's, centre of the ancient Republic of Venice. Another characteristic that makes it unique, compared to all other islands of the Lagoon, is the possibility to reach it by car, avoiding problems and costs of car-parking either in Mestre (mainland) or at the Tronchetto (car-park). The hotel has 42 rooms on three floors connected by lift. The rooms nearly all have classical-style furnishings, are luminous, some with a small balcony and all with bathroom, shower, air conditioning, telephone with direct outside line, satellite TV, and a wireless internet connection. There is an internet point in the Hall. The Buffet breakfast is open from 7,00 to 10,00 a.M. In the breakfast room on the ground floor, while the restaurant is only open for organised groups. The hotel bar is open 24 hours a day. ... more less
