Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Stella Venice
Excellent value Villa
The Villa Stella is a small very good value Guest House type accomodation. It is kept scrupiously clean by the owners and they provide a really plentiful continental breakfast. A very good price was agreed by contacting the owners directly.
I enjoyed the journey from St Marks square to the Villa "30 Minutes", the views from the waterbus were wonderful.
Some people may find the distance from Lido to Venice a small hinderance but I was glad to escape the crowds at the end of the day.
I would highly recomend Villa Stella to anybody looking for good quality accomodation at a very reasonable price.
Far from town, but a great bargain!
The ONLY negative for this hotel is its location. The island of Lido is a 35 minute boat ride from central Venice. Granted, one only has to do this ride twice each day, but one must also plan for the entire day and not rely on returning to the hotel for supplies, rest, etc... That said, the rooms were VERY clean, the bathrooms were newly rennovated, and the staff was charming. Breakfast was above average for hostel fare. I'd return again because the price far outmeasures the distance. A great value.

... clear, and there are a lot of confused tourists clutching maps and comparing routes but there is a general consensus that the 4.1 does indeed go to Murano. Until the boat pulls up and one unsure tourist asks the grumpy boat attendant if the boat goes to Murano, and he tells us all "no". Confusion ensues. I’m game to get on anyway, and have one foot on the boat but Mr Fletche is stranded in the crowd beyond the grumpy boat ...

We were just at Venice for 2 nights. I realy liked Venice! We went on a train for 3 hours form Rome to Venice. When we arrived in Venice two ladies each had a sign saying Fensom. The two ladies showed Natalie, Jack, Mum and I where our water taxi was because it's all water. It took around 20 minuetes to get to our Hotel from the train station.
The next day we went on two tours. On the first tour the Tour Guide told us about San Marco Basilica. ...
... site in Venice. A rough gruff Aussie voice boomed , "Ya lost mate? These streets 'ill do it to ya" Ha ha Aussie Aussie Aussie, oy oy oy . Yes we were lost, they were lost, every one is lost. They were on their way to the Rialto Bridge. The only bridge that crosses the Grand Canal. Quite famous and very touristy. Chit chat chit chat, they walk off we sit on our step, Stefano won't look for my T__TT__ Canal. Shame.

... with grand canal view we went out for an Italian dinner. I had a super hot pizza and after walking around Saint Marco square we went to bed. Venice is really cool with all of it water ways and canals. Venice is small enough to walk around but has a lot to see. The stores are filled with masks, glass art and clothes. It smells bad near the fish market but everywhere else smells great. I don't know if I would drink from the canals though.
