The Villa Mabapa is situated on Venice Lido; it is easily reached by private water taxi or public transport, either from the train station or the airport (take them to the centre stop at Santa Maria Elisabetta Square). If you are travelling by car, you can arrive directly to the hotel via car ferry and benefit from free parking at the hotel.
"Perfect location, perfect hospitality"
Our water taxi from Venice across to the Lido arrived at Hotel Villa Mabapa's own jetty, just a few yards from the Hotel entrance. The hotel enjoys the most marvellous location with views across the lagoon towards Venice, with spectacular sunsets each evening while we were there. The receptionists are the most helpful and courteous, and informed us of the best ways to travel around the Lido by bus, and how to navigate our way back to Venice itself via vaporetto/water buses. Our three rooms were comfortable, clean and well appointed, although the bathroom in one of the twin rooms was deemed compact. A function in the hotel meant that they were fully booked for dinner on arrival, but our disappointment was quickly dispelled some 15 minutes later when we were informed that they could indeed accommodate us in the Restaurant. Our dinner here proved to be one of the highlights of our stay. Superb quality food and wine, with excellent service. Breakfasts were splendid, while drinks in the bar area in front of the hotel, in peaceful surroundings, watching the setting sun were simply delightful. A memorable 4 day visit, guaranteeing we will stay once more at Hotel Villa Mabapa on our next break in Venice.
My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Villa Mabapa in April 2017. This place is simply awesome! Great staff. Great rooms. Great breakfast. Great dinner restaurant. Everything was perfect! We also liked the location. A short walk to the water bus that will take you to Venice, Murano, San Giorgio, and more. If you're planning to visit Venice, this is the place to stay!
"Beautiful Entrance & Outdoors"
We had a pleasant stay with a fairly large room with a king bed and an additional side room but no balcony. The room was dated with older fixtures in the bathroom and small shower. We enjoyed a nice dinner there with wine and a great breakfast in the morning. The staff was very pleasure except when we asked for a second room key. The outdoor entrance area was scattered with tables to relax and have a cocktail. A nice stay on Lido.
"60 th Celebration"
Good reception on arrival had a room 209 with a view of the lagoon if you have a long neck. Bathroom had a lot to be considered toilet right under hand basin bad design could have used a smaller basin, did not dine at hotel rather pricey room kept clean on a daily basis,Good location for visiting Venice a must do is getting a multiple trip water bus ticket you will find it worthwhile
"Ok Place with potential "
Mabapa is a lovely hotel in need of refreshing. It has old world charm, excellent dining and is across from the sea. Grounds are well kept. Front desk personnel were not personable. They gave us a hard time when we asked for a 2nd room key so we would each have one. They continued to be curt with us during our 2 night stay. This was our first hotel on an 11 day tour and we didn't feel welcomed. The rooms and decor in the main building where we stayed were very dated. The bathroom was uncomfortable with the smallest shower we've ever encountered in a hotel. Bed was very comfortable. Mabapa does a lot of tour business and should pay more attention to their rooms. Our welcome dinner was delicious and well prepared. Breakfast was bountiful.
