Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Panorama Venice
We had an enjoyable 4 night stay at the Hotel Panorama in January 04.
Very nice rooms, excellent staff, friendly and helpful. Good english skills. Very nice Breakfast in the AM. This hotel is on the island of Lido, so you have to take a 20-30 minute vaporetto boat to get there from the city of Venice. However the boats run every ten minutes during the day and most of the evening, so access is convenient. You can get a deal at the hotel that includes a three day pass on the boats. If you want to be in the middle of the Venice "action" this won't be the hotel for you, but if you like a little "separation" from the city, it's a nice place to stay. One last thing-Lido is pretty much shut down in January, so there not much to do there at this time of year.
A wonderful hotel with great service -- from the moment we checked in to the moment we left. Definitely take advantage of the free shuttle to Murano, but don't feel compelled to buy at the factory: There are many great locations.
The only caveat: Public transportation to/from Lido is great; however, when we arrived by train in Venice, we discovered that the Vaporetto workers had called a strike (which actually ended up lasting three days). Taxi service to the island cost about 70 Euros, and the limited "lifeline" transport service is about a 45-minute walk away from the station. None of this the fault of the hotel, of course...
A Great Hotel
A great hotel...very friendly and reasonably priced. First class staff, first class breakfast and first class welocme. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. I would certainly go again.
Greatest little hotel in Italy
This cozy hotel is so charming. Newly renovated with modern amenities and spotlessly clean. Transportation is just across the street. Staff is most friendly and helpful.
We are going back in April 2004!
All the reviewers were right.
For our trip to Venice in October 2003, I checked the reviews on this hotel and everything said was accurate: clean rooms, helpful staff, etc. We got a great package deal from Madrid to Venice despite late booking. Definitely recommends booking on expedia and this hotel. One warning: avoid the restaurant on S.M. de Elisabetta Street (the main street on Lido) near the hotel (on the right side of the street as you walk away from the piazza): its very unfriendly. T. C.

Definitely the place to stay in Venice!!!
From the location, to the very friendly and accomodating staff, to the private beach, to the free taxi service and free guided private tour of the murano glass factory, this is definitely the place to stay.
Lido is a beautiful island and the private beach is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Oh, and by the way, the first pizza place on the left, when your headed to the beach, is definitely the place to eat (and its only a hundred yards from the hotel).
We loved our stay at the Hotel Panorama, and if we get the chance to go back to Venezia, we'll definitely be back to the Panorama!!!
Great hotel...excellent location. Lido is a beautiful uscale island only 30 min by vaporetto from Venice, but the vaporetto station is right in front of hotel and the hotel is right in the plaza area (though not noisy). We had a charming view in a very reasonably priced room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice continental breakfast.Panorama offers a free shuttle to Murano's Marco Polo glass factory. Murano is the home of glass blowing. Don't feel pressured to buy at the factory they take you to, and look around the island's many shops and factories and ask lots of questions. We didn't get info on VAT ahead of time.
This is a must
if you want a very, very special occasion, the hotel panorama is the place to stay. from the minute we walked in the door, we felt at home. the hotel concierge, gianfranco busetto, and the hotel manager, davide baldan, did everything to make this a perfect holiday. our room was sparkling clean and every effort was made to assure we were taken care of. we would definitely stay at the hotel panorama again and recommend it highly. the concierge took care of our dining reservations and points of interest to visit with as great of care as he would for his own family. the staff was friendly and their breakfast was delightful. a VERY fun hotel to stay in.Pamela A.

Today we took a guided tour of Venice seeing more of the sights up close. We were taken inside the St. Marcos Cathedral of which was really beautiful. Then we went into a glass blowing shop and saw how so many of the fine glassware was made. We were given a break to explore the square and surrounding shops. I looked up in the Cathedral way to long and when we came and I had just sat down ...
... s better stuff. This, like the other, bigger 'schools' was expensive, so we looked in on the Chiesa d San Rocco next door, home to a few of Tintoretto's lesser works, and free to boot. A mid-afternoon snack drove us back to the hotel for a cat-nap while the heavens opened and made Venice less attractive!
A final local supper and it was across to the Piazzale Roma for the coach back to Treviso Airport.
More observations:Venice is riddled ...
... Never in my life have I ever seen such a empty motorway. Unlike most motorways in the world which are straight and boring these ones in Italy are quite twisty and just great for biking.
As I head onward south the mist and clouds are building and soon it starts to rain and I am tempted to stop and put on my rain gear. However the road heads into one of the mighty long tunnels and by the time I exit the tunnel its bright and sunny once again.
Finally i approach ...
... Chrissie go to the toilets, they all start making out and comparing tits, Ganzer included, he loses that competition. Later on Hannah asks Michael if he'd like another viewing, this time Mel goes with them, inside the toilets they're all kissing and comparing boobs again, which is apparently a common thing? He seems like he is locked in for a threesome here, suggesting to the girls they get out of the bar straight to room 192. On the way out Hannah stops though, she gets cold ...
... are required to have septic tanks. We did a tour of the city where we saw large wooden tables just stacked up in the main square. When the city has a king tide they use the tables as a "catwalk" to walk around the flooded parts. Although tourists swim in flooded areas, locals disinfect the saturated grounds and tables at least twice after it floods. As they know what's in the water.
For the millions who visit each year, Venice has captured the impression of a ...
