We have just returned from a 4 night stay at this small but well appointed hotel on Lido.
Ok so it is definately not the Ritz - 4 stars, maybe, maybe not (depending on personal standards I suppose) but if a clean functional room, clean bed linen, smart & clean bathroom, close to the vaporetta stop (approx 750m) is what you want then look no further. We had a nice view of the lagoon & St Marks from our window on the 2nd floor.
It suited all our needs and we found the breakfast to be very generous with scrambled eggs, bacon, cold meats, cheese, fruit, cereals, yogurts plus the usual croissants & tasty pastries, fruit jiuce and coffee - all self service.
Island itself is quaint and a very relaxing place to escape the crowds on the main island with lots of small bars & restaurants.
Staff very friendly & helpful - we took advantage by asking the reception to book a water taxi for our return trip to the airport which we picked up directly outside the hotel - yes it is a more expensive option but worth it as it gets you there in approx 25-30 mins & saves all the stops on the vaporetta - if you are there with another couple/s then this is better as you can obviously share the cost which is what we did - otherwise a very expensive option for one family or one couple.
Safes are available in the rooms for a 5 Euro deposit which is returned when you hand in the key at the end of your stay.
Overall all of our party of four were pleased with their experience of this hotel and would recommend to others if you just want something clean, functional and close enough to all the hustle & bustle but not right on top of it all - there is too much of Venice & surrounding islands to explore - why would you want to spend all day in your hotel anyway!!
