This is a great place to stay! It's in a quiet residential area, yet still less than a 5 minute walk to restaurants, the train station and Vaporetto stops & only about a 10 minute or less walk to Piazzale Roma if you're coming in by taxi or shuttle from the airport. If you're getting dropped off in Piazzale Roma you only have to go over one bridge, if you're coming from the train station you won't have to go over any to get to the hotel. And hen you have luggage that you have to carry up and down the bridge steps you'll be grateful for that. Venice is FULL of bridges and that was a huge plus! The apartment was so nice and comfortable. They even had extra pillows and blankets (which you seem to have to beg and plead for in other hotels) and a full kitchen. We were there over New Year's so Venice was quite cold and the floor heating was AMAZING! It had good amenities and even included a hair dryer and washing machine. The only problem we had was that because it was in a more residential area, it was far away from the tourist areas, but those are the areas you are going to find yourself visiting a lot. It's a 30 minute walk to St. Mark's Square and 45min+ on the Vaporetto. The Vaporetto is a really nice relaxing ride and Venice is fun and easy to walk through. But when it's biting cold outside you won't want to walk 30+ min. And since we were there over New Year's, we were out late on New Year's Eve and the Vaporetto stops running when it gets late.
The location is ideal for someone like me who prefers the quiet local atmosphere of Giudecca, which still has the unspoilt feel of local life, rather than crowds of tourists. The views are atmospheric, and the proximity of shops and eateries favoured by Venetians themselves makes it even more enjoyable. The flat has a washing machine, washing up machine, espresso maker, microwave as well as a cooker. There are two bath/shower rooms, with towels and the usual toiletries, and there are 3 T.Vs and free wi-fi. Next door is the fascinating boatyard where renovation of traditional boats takes place. there's a Venetian rowing club and plenty of moorings for launches and the like. The vaporetto stop is close by and the Fondamenta looks out towards the Bacino and San Marco. All in all it is a fabulous place, and I would recommend it to my friends.
"Appartement bien situé avec petit-déjeuner sympa"
L'appartement de Giorgio est très bien situé, au calme et la formule proposée pour le petit-déjeuner est très pratique : le frigo et le placard sont remplis de ce dont vous avez besoin (fruits, yaourts, jus d'orange, pain de mie, croissants, thé en sachets, café en poudre, ...) et chaque jour, quelqu'un vient pour y remettre ce qui manque. Du coup, vous n'avez pas de contrainte d'heure pour le petit-déjeuner.
En terme d'accès, il est à 5 minutes d'un arrêt de vaporetto (ligne n°1, arrêt Sant' Angelo) ce qui est pratique quand on arrive le premier jour et pour repartir.

"Small, friendly hotel close to all tourist attract"
Spent 3 nights and couldn't have picked a better hotel. Central location meant all the main tourist areas were only 5-10 mins walk. Good selection for breakfast. Room was plenty big enough and kept clean. Only negative point was some of the wood in the bathroom had got wet and split, although this did not affect us in any way. Still enjoyed a good soak in the jacuzzi bath each night after a long day of walking.

Le ville de Lido was a great place to stay, would highly recommend it. lovely comfortable bed. The room was really clean [and I have high standards] The hotel is easy walking distance from the water bus.You need a good pair of trainers for walking in Venice as its quite tiring .Burrano is well worth a visit but we were disappointed with Murrano We hired bikes on the 1st day which was really enjoyable. When eating out watch out for extra charges on the bill.
This is an apartment owed by somebody who rents it out to tourists, so it is not a hotel of serviced apartment as such. However it is a great location on a few min walk to Rialto Bridge and San Marco, Laura the owner is lovely the apartment is clean. Howev it is up to you to maintain this as it is does not get serviced. I loved it and thought it was great.
