Hotel Cristallo -- Lido

Reviewed 20 October 2013

I was in hotel cristallo with my friends only for one night and luckily not for longer time.. at first we thought it was clean and nice hotel and the staff were so friendly, but at night i woke up when a little bedbug walked along my hand.. i started to find more bugs and we killed them all.. only the feeling of the tickling after the little bug had bit a round my body made me rate this hotel only as a one-star-hotel. so if you are afraid of bedbugs, don't go to this hotel.
But there were also some good things: WLAN was working very well, location was good, staff were friendly and the bathroom was clean and shower was quite good :)

Excellent hotel, great vallue for money, great location. The staff were very friendly. I'm not sure i liked the breakfast, not enough. Good access to the centre of venice from here by public transfport. The rooms are very clean and spacious. I would use again if coming to venice again.

The hotel has a very good location,nice and spacious rooms,everything is very clean. The staff is also friendly and helpful, breakfast was also ok. I would recommend this hotel to everybody,who is looking for a cheap hotel near Venice in a quite location. Could be a three star, I would welcome a better bed and a fridge.

We wanted a hotel on the Lido as we were travelling by car. The ferry from the Tronchetta was convenient and the hotel has secure car parking a little way from the hotel accessed by requesting the key. We left our car there during our stay.
The hotel is a few minutes walk along the main shopping street to the vaporetto service to the main islands, which is excellent (well worth buying a pass).
The room was clean and spacious and the breakfasts were very good. The staff were excellent and the manager, Andrea, was charming, going out of his way to do everything possible to help. Wifi was available and free, although it worked better near to the router.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Cristallo and it was excellent value for money. Like many others, we were there to visit Venice, not for the luxury of a grand hotel, but this was a good trip and the accommodation suited us very well.

Room Tip: If you want to use the internet, ask for a room close to the router (near the lift on our floor).

We spent 2 nights there, and I was very satisfied with everything in the hotel : the reception, the clean and spacious room, breakfast etc. And Lido is just 10 minutes from the main Venice island. I would recommend it to others

Chose this hotel because of price and other reviews. Hoped it was easy to get to main city via water. Was so pleased! Despite the February weather, transit was easy. To avoid lugging extra baggage, we stored unneeded items at the train station. The hotel was the epitome of Italian workmanship. The construction and amenities were first rate, even down to the bathroom tile. And so clean! Front desk personnel friendly and courteous. The buffet breakfast made the typical American Motel 6 or Super 8's seem laughable. Would have easily spent $200/night to get this anywhere near a US major city or tourist attraction. And despite other reviews, coffee was great, but then I like it very strong with a bit of hot milk in the morning.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from smokers. There were signs indicating no smoking, but could occasionally smell c...

located on the lido and very close to water buses and ferries to the islands and mainland this hotel is perfectly located, taking just minutes to reach from the water. There are roads on the lido and your travel card includes use of the buses, so you could hop on to visit the beach/festival etc on the other side of the island ( which takes just 15 minutes to walk across) The street s.m elisabetta is the main one on the lido and has a large choice of restaurants, pizzerias, ice cream parlours etc. and during the summer months a plentiful choice of outdoor dining. This was our second visit to the cristallo, and whilst the hotel is rather tired, the rooms are clean, bedding good and breakfast ample, but oh! they have installed a coffee machine, in Italy? really? such a disappointment and such a shame. Sadly we won't be going back, but if you're not coffee drinkers, this hotel is well priced and ticks lots of boxes. You may find cheaper prices on comparison sites rather than booking direct. The advantage to staying on the lido is that when you go across the lagoon to visit the city, you will see Venice at it's best, entering the grand canal the way travellers have done for centuries, great fun seeing the cruise ships, vaporettos, taxis etc. criss crossing this wonderful waterway. Apart from all the usual wonders, make time for La Scualo Grande di Rocco, Sa' Toma stop, next to I Frari church, nothing special on the ground floor, but pure beauty upstairs, wall to ceiling Tintorettos ( and a Titian), including his masterpiece the Crucifiction, plus the most incredible carvings we have ever seen!
