“Quiet location, convenient for Venice”
Reviewed 28 August 2011

The Hotel Cristallo is on the main street from the waterbus stop crossing the island of Venice Lido. Despite this, it is a quiet hotel, with small yet clean rooms. The buffet breakfast was acceptable, if a little limited in scope (no fruit), and the free in room internet worked fine. It's a decent choice if you want stay close to Venice on a budget, especially a little out of season when Lido is quiet. Reception was friendly and spoke English fluently and not bothered by the fact that a delay to my flight meant that I didn't arrive until 200am.
And if you miss the last waterbus from Marco Polo airport, you may be able to get a (road) bus to Piazzale di Roma in Venice, and then take the all night vaporetto that runs across to the Lido.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side are quiet

Third time at this hotel, and still great.
Great location, great value for money, friendly and helpful staff, well kept hotel in general.
Never before had we such hot weather as this year , which made us appreciate the Cristallo even more, with its fresh common areas and efficient airco in the room.
The children enjoyed it very much too - again - and we spent all day at the beach, only going into Venice after 5pm. This way, despite the extreme temperatures, we all had a great holiday.

we stayed here (2 adults , 2 kids aged 1o and 14) for two nights in August. As the hotel is situated on Lido (on walking distance of the vaporetto) it was a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Venice. We also spend a few hours on the beach, also within walking distance. Lots of nice restaurants in the neighborhood. The car ferry towards the isle was a breeze. Much better option for us than parking the car outside of Venice and drag our suitcases to a hotel.
The hotel itself was clean, we had a spacious room on the second floor, with balcony and a very nice bathroom. As extra's: free wireless internet, simple but nice breakfast (great warm croissants!). We definitely recommend this one and would stay here again.

Stayed here one night while touring Venice. A simple, clean hotel with a good location.

Lots of good restaurants in the area. The hotel provides you access to a private beach. We went to the public beach which as very nice.

Unfortunately, we slept in and missed the included breakfast so are unable to comment.

We stayed here for three nights this July. Great value for money at around £220 for two for three nights B&B. It is described as two star.....but I assume this is because it doesnt meet some obscure criteria....here are the positives; open all night (we checked in at nearly midnight), we emailed requesting a balcony room and got it; massive double bed (king size +); linen changed every day; quality ensuite bathroom with 4 or 5 fresh towels each day; perfectly adequate continental breakfast taken in enclosed garden; 5 minutes from vaporetto link to Venice (10 mins) Airport (25 mins); 5 mins from Lido beach with free access to hotel's beach cabin; great location amongst Lido's pizzerias and ice cream/coffee shops, air con, period building, helpful staff. Negatives; none.
Staying on the Lido was a masterstroke as door to door hotel to St Marks square was 30 mins walk and boat, and it meant after a hot day walking in Venice we could escape to the beach for a couple of hours for a swim and either enjoy an evening in this elegant resort or head back into Venice for dinner. If you are on a budget and Venice is too expensive to use as a base I would recommend Cristallo as a worthy alternative and thus combine the city break with a beach break too!

Room Tip: After booking we emailed requesting a balcony room; they didnt confirm but on arrival we had one!

Clean rooms, helpful staff (speaking english, spanish and french at least), great location (close to the Lido beach and 10mn away from San Marco piazza by vaporetto), good breakfast, free internet... it's not a palace, of course, but it has everything you need to enjoy ur stay in Venezia

The hotel is ranked in the top 100 - for a 2 stars hotel not situated in Venezia, it says it all..
