Hotel and Residence Venezia 2000
In a fairly quiet beach front location, and so offering sea views from many rooms, this mid-range option is otherwise fairly disappointing, lacking any character or atmosphere.
Public areas are spacious but unimaginative, and grounds are sadly almost non-existent, though it does benefit from a wide rooftop sun deck that offers panoramic views over the lagoon and city, as well as a Jacuzzi in summer.
It has its own changing cabin on the beach opposite, with umbrellas, sunbeds and also bicycles for rent, and offers a few suites with kitchens.
It is a little way out even for the Lido's amenities, and is best recommended for anyone who favours the beach over the city and can't stretch to the Excelsior or Des Bains.
A prominent 5-storey terracotta villa-style former apartment building, with arched windows, narrow balconies to some rooms and protruding conservatory sections to the lounge and restaurant at the front.
Metal railings border the property and 2 rather fierce looking stone lions guard the steps up to the entrance.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
Exterior: Villa-style building
The rather spartan lobby has little more than a few wicker tables and chairs in front of the reception. To one side is a fairly spacious lounge with more wicker chairs and a conservatory section looking out to sea.
To the other is the restaurant, pleasant enough though rather plain, with wooden seating arranged mostly in rows and a semi-circular bar in the corner. It too has a conservatory section facing the street and sea.
Grounds are minimal and rather disappointing. At the front the restaurant has a split-level tiled terrace with plastic tables and chairs, while opposite a similar terrace is completely bare; both are bordered by pleasant mature shrubs that give privacy from the street.
At the rear a fairly expansive tiled courtyard lies between the building and its car park, with plenty of greenery but where seating is restricted to a bench around the trunk of a tall tree.
A rooftop sun terrace has metal loungers, tables and chairs, as well as a Jacuzzi in summer, and offers good all-round views of the sea and lagoon.
Area Type: On the Lido facing the sea at the eastern end of the main boulevard that runs beside the beach, with a public beach opposite. Other than a snack bar opposite, beach bar 100 yds and one restaurant 200 yds away, there are few amenities nearby; main shops, bars and restaurants ½ ml, bus stop outside.
