“Ok hotel, but beware the water bus costs.”
Reviewed 10 November 2009

The hotel was fine. Easy to get to from the water bus station. Good sized rooms with bathroom. No shower curtain for the shower so be careful of your stuff getting wet.
They provide complimentary breakfast however its not really that nice.
The island of Lido where this hotel is located is very nice. Its quiet and has some great little places to eat. The only real downside was the cost of the water bus which was around 6 euro per person per trip which bumped the cost of the hotel up a bit.

This is a friendly hotel in the middle of Lido di Venezia just off the main street. It's very well located between the water taxi (vaporetto) stop and the beach and everything is close by. The rooms are small and we thought it quite expensive (the most expensive of the four hotels we stayed at in Italy despite the lowest star rating), though there was a good breakfast provided. We were three in a room with our 10 year old and it was very 'compact'. The staff spoke English but weren't especially helpful (eg there was no possiiblity of helping us with the cases up the stairs to reception). Nevertheless on balance I'd recommend it. One thing you do have to consider if you're using this as a base for main Venice is that the vaporettos on and off the Island cost 18 euros a day or 6.50 euros per journey. If you have three in your party this add up to a lot of money, possibly more than not staying on Lido.

If you are traveling to Venice, the best you can do is to stay in Lido to avoid the noice and crowds. This hotel is perfectly located in a quiet and beautiful area just about 2 blocks from the Vaporetto stop. In about 10 min or less you are in the heart of Venice, so this is a great option. The hotel Villa Cipro is very clean and the rooms are spacious. Every morning we opened our window and could feel the breeze and tranquility of Lido. They have this quiet garden juts outside where you can sit down and enjoy your morning coffee. The staff was very friendly and breakfast was good (however, don't expect coffee to be good!). You can also walk a few blocks and you are right on the beach (what a pleasant surprise!). If you are going to Venice, stay in Lido because is much more affordable but overall is away from hectic Venice. I will highly recommend this hotel.

Reviewed 16 April 2009

We stayed in Villa Cipro for 2 nights during our short trip to Venice. My wife booked the hotel by email and the price was 110EUR per night. Hotel is situated on Lido island, so we took direct Ali Laguna boat from the Venice Marco Polo airport (13EUR per person) and disembarked at Lido in 1 hour. We did not know where the hotel was exactly, but we asked the waiter in the street cafe and he was happy to help us. Hotel staff at reception did not speak English that good, but as we are also not native speakers, we did not expect much. Room was clean with two big windows, small ancient TV, closet and minibar. Bathroom was small, but clean and convenient to use. Bed seemed short to me, but wide enough for two people. Breakfast was simple, but again, everything we wanted to have we got: salami, cheese, bread, coffee, fruit, yoghurt etc.
Wi-Fi internet was 5EUR per hour. You have to get the login and password from the receptionist. You can use internet for free from the computer in the lobby.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to the ones who does not stay long time in the hotel, but who come to Venice for sightseeing as budget travellers. Also me being tired of chain hotels, I was happy to see relaxed faces of hotel staff. Though they don't wear uniforms and rubber smile on the faces, they do their job really good. Thank you!

My girlfriend and me stayed at the hotel 3 nights in the beginning of December. We are satisfied with our choice. The place is near to beach, near to main street with restaurants and shops, nevertheless not on the busy part. The vaporett stop is about 5 minutes walk and then you are in about 10 minutes in the city centre. Vaporetts goes rather often.

The hotel is clean and breakfast is really hearty and tasty. Our double room was nice, air-conditioning was OK, bathroom too. There were three different reception clerks with three different levels of English.

There were only one problem last day. The receptionist wanted to pay for drunk bootles from refrigerator in our room in spite of we didn't drink them. But she was polite and we didn't pay it.

Reviewed 17 May 2008

This was my first time on the Island of Lido, and while I was taken with the Island itself, I was underwhelmed with the Hotel Villa Cipro. The location is great - just off a main Boardwalk - and it looks great from the outside. The inside, however, was rather shabby-looking. We got there in late spring, but the heat was still on and unable to be turned off. We had to sleep with our ground-level window open, which we weren't very comfortable with. The bathroom was cramped with plastic counters and a horrible shower. There was free internet access in the lobby, but on one slow, old computer. Also, the free breakfast was served from 8-10am. We got there at 9am and there were no pastries, rolls, juice or coffee left, and no new supplies came out. Just some sad-looking fruit and boxes of cereal with yogurt. We paid a hefty price for a very mediocre hotel experience.

We went during the off-season, and it was a very good experience. Don't expect luxury (the shower door was broken but useable, the hairdryer was broken but I fixed it with tape), but, if you are looking for comfort, you will find it here.
The breakfast was huge and it was so much fun going back and forth on the vaporetti! Lido, even in the off-season, is the best place to stay.
The staff were very friendly to us - and we found some amazing italian sausage at the deli on the way back to the vaporetti!
