We decided to try a hotel on the Lido this year instead of choosing our regular hotel on the Riva degli Schiavoni in the Castello region of Venice as it was fully booked. Hotel Helvetia was around 20 Euros a night cheaper with no compromise on quality, comfort or friendliness. The location was ideal being on the Lido which is simple to access and within a stone's throw of the valperetto stop taking you directly to St Marks Square, Piazza Roma or Burano. It was also local to a supermarket, numerous bars & restaurants, the hotel's own access to a private beach and also to the public beach which has a bar, cafe and ample seating allowing you to either sunbathe, swim or just sit and enjoy a drink and watch the world go by after a long tiring day in Venice itself. If you have a valperetto ticket you can also take a ride by bus to the part of The Lido where the film festival is held. The continental breakfast offered by the hotel is more than adequate to set you up for the day and you can enjoy a reasonably priced glasss of wine in the hotel garden in the evening (but beware of the mossies!!!) A thoroughly good, clean hotel with friendly staff in an ideal location.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A pretty hotel just a canal-hop from Venice, the Helvetia Hotel offers a break from the norm. Set down a leafy boulevard in the heart of Venice Lido, the Helvetia is a world away from your run-of-the-mill city hotel. Inside, it brims with Venetian flair and sophistication, while outside there’s a lovely flower-filled garden where you can enjoy al fresco breakfasts. ... more less
