“Great budget hotel in excellent location”
Reviewed 30 August 2009

Room was comfortable, clean with air conditioning and small balcony.
Breakfast was basic but adequate.
Very helpful and knowledgeable receptionists
Great location in quiet, residential road just a few minutes walk to restaurants, bars and vaparetto stop. Public beach is around 5 minutes walk and very clean with good facilities.
All in all, a very enjoyable stay here
WORD OF WARNING: Lido is just as expensive as Venice - most Lido restaurants charge a 1.5 Euro cover charge per person plus 10% service charge. In contrast, many Venice restaurants display signs stating "No cover charge or service charge". The few souvenir/gift shops opertating on Lido are very expensive with little choice. Venice has 100's of souvenir shops and prices are much lower than Lido. Expect to pay 1.20 - 1.50 Euros for a small bottle of 500ml water from street vendors on Lido and Venice and up to 2.50 Euros in Lido street cafes for a 500ml bottle of water.

Reviewed 20 June 2009

The hotel is quiet, ca. 5 min walk from the Lido farry. But do not go with your car there: although the parking place is promised on the web-page there is no parking possible (only in the gateway of hotel, but its not what you really want). The business/internet room was also promised on the web-page of the hotel, but it was out of order, and nobody could say when it will be fixed. The breakfast is poor, one day we got eggs but no chees, another day cheese and no eggs, bred pieces are counted, you need to ask every time for another one.

Reviewed 17 December 2008

Had a conference in Venice in April, but something went wrong with my hotel reservation, so I needed a place to stay at the last minute. Went on www.ratestogo.com and booked this place.

Arrived here 1-2 hours after my internet reservation and the staff was already aware of my reservation and imminent arrival; simply great!

Hotel is quite basic, rooms have simple basic decoration / interior. Everything was clean though and the room had a good shower. The location is the best asset of this hotel, very nicely located on the Lido island, which is beautiful, has some nice restaurant, , nice bars and close to the beach and you can easily reach it from the center of Venice (15 minutes by public boat).

Breakfast was not great, best is to get a croissant at any nearby café, like the Italians do.

In conclusion, I enjoyed my stay here, very afforable for a basic hotel, but it was all I needed. Would stay here again.

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.
