Hotel Cristallo -- Lido
Ranked #21 of 33 Hotels in Lido di Venezia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 August 2014

Our 6th stay here at the Cristallo, and again everything was perfect.
The breakfast, the large room, the friendly service, nothing ever seems to change at the Cristallo- luckily.
Only downside this year was the change of beach facility to a stabilimento close to the Excelsior, which meant quite a long walk .
In short, a centrally located hotel with excellent value for money.

This hotel was a disappointment for us. We had booked a room with parking but once we arrived in Venice it turned out that due to an annual festival the car ferries to Lido were out of service. We had to leave our car in Tronchetto and take all our belongings with us on a water bus. Somehow I would've appreciated if the hotel had informed us about this when we made our booking. We had two wishes for the hotel: parking and Wi-Fi. Once we arrived we found out that the Wi-Fi wasn't working either. They were "working on it" as they said. The breakfast was quite poor with mostly pastries and cheese&ham kept in room temperature. They also said they had a private beach that we never found since the information was so confusing. Location is good in relation to the water bus stop but next time I would stay away from the main street a couple of blocks to ensure some peace and quiet.

This hotel is just perfect for a Visit to Venice and The Lido. It is ideally situated 5 minutes easy walk to the vaporetto station and 5 minutes in the other direction is a lovely beach. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious and fitted out nicely with traditional furniture. We had a very nice view from the balcony along the boulevard. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast is very good too with a good selection of cold cuts, cheeses, yogurts, breads and pastries and unlimited lovely teas and coffees.The hotel is right on the doorstep of several restaurants and bars but we also used the supermarket Billa which is 2 minutes walk along the road and bought hot foods, salads, breads etc from there. Billa also has a good range of inexpensive wines. If you go to Venice I would advise buying a pass for the vaporetto. We bought 3 day passes for 35 € and it worked out very well as we were able to hop on and off the boats all day making it easier to get around as much as possible. The only thing I would have changed at Cristallo was it would be improved if the rooms had a fridge and tea making facilities but it is still a lovely old fashioned hotel that I would readily go back to. Great value for this stunning location.

Room Tip: Ask to be on the front with a balcony. Everything goes quiet after 10 pm so noise is not a problem.

This hotel is in a very nice position on the main drag on the Lido de Venezia. Rooms good size , breakfast was good and plentiful. Staff are polite and friendly. It is a short walk from the water bus stops. Loads of cafes and restaurants near by and a short walk from the beach. If you are going by air you can get a water bus from the airport then it is a short walk. It is best to buy a water bus pass for 1 , 2, 3 days etc. saves load of money off water buses, and you will use them a lot to get back and forth from Venice

Four night stop in this hotel. Very clean, standard breakfast buffet of cold meats, cheese, cereal, bread rolls, pastries and dispensing machines for coffee, tea etc, and fruit juice. Staff with whom we had contact were polite, friendly and extremely helpful. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the vaporetto stop and around the same distance, in the opposite direction, to the beach. We received on our return home a very nice e-mail from the hotel which states, "We hope you had a marvelous vacation in Italy and a safe return home, with plenty of unforgettable memories. We would like to thank you for choosing Hotel Cristallo Venezia." I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

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 :)
