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.
Well, first staff was not friendly, very curt. I was given a room in some sidey building , 3rd floor and there was no power ( this guy was clueless about that) He, then changed my room to ist floor, was spacious, 2 bathrooms ( not sure why)... Place was nice, Complimentary breakfast , walkable to boat station.
I can not remember the name of the woman at the front desk but she is the only woman that works the front desk that I saw but she was awesome! Not only was she so friendly she was nice enough to let us check in VERY early which was a big deal after traveling all night, she also upgraded our room because it was my boyfriends birthday and the room wasn't occupied. The room had a beautiful view and private terrace. The breakfast is delicious and the rest of the staff is so nice! I will always stay here when I travel to Venice. It is so nice being out of the rush of Venice. This is a nice quiet island. Take advantage of the free bicycles!!! It is so nice to take a bike ride through the town and they have several available to use!
For us we made a good choice of hotel.Lido is only a short water bus ride from Venice so you can get away from the crowds.The staff are very friendly our room was very comfy,good bathroom and separate wc.The breakfast buffet was good,nice selection to choose from.We ate in the hotel restaurant and had a really good meal and good wine.As we were booked in for 7 night we had a complimentary visit to a Murano glass manufacturer,nice little touch.We bought a 7 day water bus ticket so getting around was easy and it runs 24 hours so no problems.
Excellent location and very good value for money. The restaurant has a good menu and the quality of food is very high. A really comfortable bed. The staff were helpful and friendly. Lido is a lovely green location. The rest of Venice can be easily reached. The hotel is an 8 minute walk to the boat stop, including the one for the airport
"A great hotel"
We visited Venice with a school choir from the UK and stayed in the Villa Mabapa on a half board basis. It was above our expectations, friendly service, great rooms and the food was delicious. We'll be back...
