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.

... religious and civil ceremonies have always been held there and now the Piazza San Marco is considered the city's main symbol. Returned to our water taxi and back to our hotel via canals - Venice is quite a weird city, I have decided and I am not sure I really like it here. Many of the buildings remain abandoned and not well cared for, so place looks a bit tired and dirty. Spooky at night too in all the alley ways too. ACCOMMODATION: PAPADOPOLI HOTEL, VENICE ...
... theatre, brunch with other "mariners", an exercise class, a below-deck ship tour, a cocktail party; plus I did 10 laps of the deck each day. And that's just the stuff I remember! Today I was very lazy by comparison. Or to put a positive spin on it, I was a better companion for Nanna. Apart from doing my laps around the deck (hey Cath, wouldn't that look interesting on Strava?), I typed up my travel blog, snoozed, read a little, snoozed, browsed the library, ...
... 4! So we got to stretch our legs out and enjoy the 45 minute cruise. The view was so perfect and it just didn't seem real that I was in fact in Venice, lounging on a gondola, while a musician plays and some guy sings. The music and signing part was short lived because they were in a separate boat and at the front of our fleet of 8 so ************e got to hear the music for long. HOWEVER because of this little music mishap they gave our group 5 extra bottles ...
