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.
"a home in Venice"
In March/April I stayed for 3 weeks at the beautiful Villa Mabapa and thanks to the wonderful staff I really felt like at home. They truly want to see you smile and make you feel welcome and they will do everything to reach that. Nice rooms offer a natural quiet atmosphere only one boat ride away from the hustle & bustle of Venice tourist roads around piazza san Marco. Thank you for giving me a home away from home! Molto grazie per la vostra gentilezza e sorrisi ogni mattina e sera :-) Anika
"Great place, great service"
We stayed at the Villa Mabapa during a company excursion to Venice and enjoyed every minute of it. Martina and Michele at the front desk went out of their way to accomodate all our different needs and special requests. The rooms are impeccable and fair sized with plenty of storage space. Service in the beautiful garden overlooking the lagune is friendly and helpful and Angelo knew our preferences from day two on. All in all it was an extremely pleasant experience and we already look forward to returning in two months.
Went there with a tour group and I was very happy with my room, the hotel and services they provided. I was in the main part of the hotel, the original building and while it was older than the other two extensions it was very nice and quaint. I had a single bed, firm mattress and nice bathroom with a tub. The toiletries they provide is soap, shampoo, shoe shine cube, and shower cap. Again no wash cloth so bring your own. My room had a great view of their courtyards. They have seating rooms where you can relax and have nice conversation. There restaurant has great food I lived breakfast and dinner options they had! They also cater to gluten free diets which was wonderful for me. They have a nice outside bar area with lots of tables and chairs. If you are in the main part of hotel you can see the canal. It's easy to walk along the canal to get the waterbus about 15 minutes away. It's a nice island with nice restaurants so many options to eat and drink by going to other hotels even. I'd stay here again it's a great location in Lido with easy access to all the other islands in Venice, highly recommend it if you like quiet scenic relaxing stay outside the heart of Venice.
"Charming and Cozy"
We enjoyed the outdoor patio as well as three meals in the quaint dining room. Our room was small, but clean. The water taxis are easy to access, and we were able to walk to local businesses. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.
"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.
