The staff at the desk and serving breakfast were very helpful and breakfast was something to look forward to each morning! The breakfast staff and breakfast was actually superb! Our room #7 had a nice view over the street in front of the hotel. The air conditioner was a blessing from the heat of the day for the bedroom, but we needed to keep the bathroom door closed as it was HOT inside the bathroom. We think the hot water element was in the wall by the sink and window as that wall was hot and so heated the bathroom. Our room had two roll away cots/beds to serve our family of four and one daughter found the cot very uncomfortable.
All said, I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
We found the free parking mentioned for our car down the road along the swimming beach about a 7 minute walk from the hotel. The public water fountain on the right side of that walk is a good place to fill your water bottle. Be sure to ask the desk staff questions as they have lots of good information to share.. .and if you drive, be sure to make ferry reservations a day ahead of time so you don't have to wait in line to leave Lido...it was a great place to visit.
