We hired a car and drove to the lido. Caught the ferry to the lido which was easy to find. We were advised by the hotel before our arrival that parking around the hotel streets is free and safe. Which was correct. Could of arranged parking for us at another hotel for a cost if we wished. The car was parked up for 3 days and never moved with no problems. On arriving a the hotel, the outside first impressions weren't good to be honest, sign was dated and faded. On entering the hotel it was clean and contemporary. The staff were excellent through out. We were told everything we needed to know without even asking. Given a map and all the bus stations, water bus stops, bus numbers, bus times, which restaurants to use and where to visit. We were told he saved us a good room and he was right. Over looking the beach with large opening windows which made it feel like you were outside and a balcony to the side. Rooms were air condtioned with the only downside being you only had one key card so couldn't leave the air con on when out of the room. Rooms were clean and modern, with fridge which was handy, good shower and safe. We were offered free beach towels if we wanted them. Breakfast was sufficient with breads, cereal, bacon, eggs, fruit, yogurt, croissants and fresh juice. Easily accessible to Venice, bus within 2 mins walk and waterbus to Venice every 10 mins or every 20 mins at night. Hotel advised us to buy a 24 hour ticket or more rather than just a single. Works out alot cheaper, you can get on any bus, waterbus or ferry with the same ticket, unlimited use within the time scale. Would recommend this hotel, especially for the price.
