I found this hotel after a lot of research. I had a LOT of expectations and this hotel just surpassed it by far. This was my third visit to Venice and i had lived on Lido already but the whole experience is just brilliant.
The Villa Laguna is a quaint hotel ideally located with the charm of Venice and decent luxury with a unique experience.
Location : The hotel is located on Lido overlooking the waterfront and you can see the whole of venice spread out in the background.It is located right next to the boat station which is very convinient.also it is located close to the small shops and supermarket on Lido. You can catch a bunch of vaperretos ( boat taxi...the public transport of venice) from right outside the hotel and reach venice main island and almost all tourist attractions within 5-10 min ride ( the ride itself is a treat) . It is a bit difficult to get to the hotel if you arrive by flight as you have to change boats , unless you spend a few bucks more for a personal water taxi. If you come by train you can get a boat directly to the stop outside the hotel. It is the best combination of not-too far from Venice but still away from the tourist crowd of Venice and relaxed atmosphere of Lido.
Service : the hotel is a family owned place and the owners invest personal attention into the day to day running of the hotel. This makes the service very good. The Hotel gave my wife and me a very nice room when they learnt we were newly wed. The check in and out was effortless and entire staff very helpful and curteous. They were smiling even when i burnt toast at breakfast and the fumes triggered the smoke alarm ..hehe.
Rooms : The rooms are large and spacious.They have some sea facing rooms which have a wonderful view of venice. The large rooms have a living room and seperate bedroom. The ensuite bathrooms are also very charming with old world decor and antique fittings and sanitaryware. it is sometimes difficult to take a shower but thats somthing you can forgive for a wonderful view even from the bathroom.
Breakfast : The highlight of the hotel...once again is the view from the breakfast room . A large room almost on the waterfront with a view overlooking wonderful venice. The breakfast is hearty and very good quality. The service again , is quite good.
Restaurant : The hotel has a nice restaurant/lounge where you can rest and have a glass of prosecco in the evening looking at the boats go back and forth to the brilliantly lit venice island.
Price : It is value for money but you do have to shell some moolah if you want the best room facing venice. But its still worth it.
Extras : You can do heaps of stuff on Lido. Take a tandem bicycle ride around the island or go to the other end of the island and enjoy the expansive view of the Adriatic sea. Just take a stroll to walk ACROSS the island within 15 min...its just fun.
In conclusion : A brillaint gem in venice for someone who doesnt want the hustle bustle of Venice main-island but still enjoy the VENICE experience. Everything is great ..nothing to fault .
