What a find Lido is. If you get stressed by crowds, this is the place for you. It is a stone's throw from the hype of Venice but close enough to be close for the day visit. We found the accommodation options in Venice to be far out of our budget so, opted for Trip Advisor's recommendations and stayed at Rigel for one night. It was a good call.
The local trattorias along the main street offer good fresh food at a reasonable price. (Gelato bars too!) The beach is unusual, with many bathing houses lining the shore. It was a nice place to walk. The houses are well kept and the streets are pretty.
Our family of 4 was well accommodated in a smallish room but it was very clean and beds were comfy. The breakfast out in the small courtyard was very nice, the coffee is outstanding while the hot chocolates impressed our teens. The breakfast staff work very hard and were happy to provide coffee top ups.
Great value for money. It is more than we thought it was going to be. We recommend it.
- 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
