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.
- 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.
