Venice Lido Hotels
and hotels in Chioggia and Sottomarina
Venice Accommodations Index
Hotel Des Bains, which is being redeveloped as a luxury apartment complex, has a
private beach with caba�as on the Adriatic Sea.
This mock Moorish palace, formerly known as the Excelsior Palace, was the largest hotel in the world
when it opened for business in 1912. Its location near the Casino is a fairly long walk from the
heart of the Lido, but private launches make it easy for guests to reach
Venice's historic center.
Two converted mansions, the Biassuti Villa Adria-Urania and Villa Nora, form a
hotel with the three-star Villa Ada (see below). In summer, you can rent a caba�a
at the beach, which is 10 minutes away on foot.
Unless you're a diehard Bauhaus buff, you'll love the over-the-top Art Nouveau
tiled fa�ade of this century-old resort hotel on
the Gran Viale Santa Elisabetta. The hotel is nicely situated, with the beach in
one direction and the vaporetto stop to the city enter in the other. It's a good
choice for a summer honeymoon or a beach weekend.
Hotel Villa Mabapa
The Best Western Villa Mabapa has lagoon views, a boat landing stage, and
private beach facilities for guests. The original villa was built in the 1930s;
today, the hotel consists of three villas that share a private garden.
Guests at this less expensive annex of the four-star Biasutti Hotels (see above)
have use of the main hotels' facilities.
This hotel in the Lido's main shopping area was renovated in 1999, and all rooms
now have private baths.
Hotel La Meridiana
The Meridiana is a restored 1930s-style building with a private beach and a
location just two minutes from the Casino waterbus stop.
This renovated 27-room hotel is on the Lido's main street, 100 meters from the
beach. Rates are extremely moderate by Venice standards.
The vaporetto from the Piazza San Marco will drop you off near this
