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.

... new destination....... Afterwards we saw that the line to San Marcos basilica was hundreds of metres long so we headed off walking the streets. Our goal was to have lunch by the water. We had seen it as we travelled by by ferry and it looked like a nice thing to do. We finally found a place and sat down. Food was nothing special but sitting right next to the waterway was very special. We were right near the Rialto bridge and we made our way around wondering at ...
With Florence trailing behind us as the train whisked away from it, we headed toward our next destination on our adventure, Venice. As we exited of the train, we made our way to hotel, which was a different hotel then the one we originally planned to go to because it was way too sketchy. While we walking through the streets of Venice trying to find our new hotel, we realized that nobody had the camera. We abruptly stopped, set all ...
... lines to get into the Doges Palace and St. Mark's cathedral were very long, so we opted out. We went over to the Accademia Museum and found that the line was too long, so proceeded to the Peggy Guggenheim museum, which had a more reasonable line. We enjoyed the 20th Century art in that museum, and the building itself as it was where she lived in the sixties. Having a front courtyard opening onto the Grand Canal is not too shabby. Lunch and more wandering, then back to the hotel to relax ...
... the rather daunting campanile (tower) in Plaza San Marco. We arrive to find that there are in fact no public stairs, and the only access is a quick €8 elevator ride. At the top the wind is both strong and cold, but the views are magnificent. In the golden late afternoon light every vista is like a live Canaletto. Tower conquered, we head home for a short break before dinner. Our first choice of restaurant, not too far from ...
... for the next couple of days. After dropping that at the hostel we headed to San Marco square which is the heart of Venice. We passed the famous bridge of sighs along the way which we got a very nice photo of both of us before continuing to San Marco square.
San Marco square was stunning. It has loads of expensive restaurants and jewellers all the way around it which the fantastics cathedral and the Campanile tower. It amazed me just how many asian ...
