Dirty Beach, old Hotel

A travel blog entry by matti002

Beach: dirty sand, nice cabana, but hard to walk around without sandals, too bad, it could have been one of the best beaches in the nord of Italy. * 1/2 Star
Hotel, needs to be restored, nice entrance but old rooms. *** stars

Venice Queen

A travel blog entry by funkymonk

... to require the shades and a liberal application of sunscreen.

There was an English girl outside on the phone to somebody, sitting by the edge of the canal and framed by a brick archway, a few rowing boats bobbing discreetly in the background. It wasn't her that got my attention, just the image itself. Canals, boats tied up outside doorways, colourful buildings - it can only be Venice. My mum has been here a few times and I can see why it's been several ...

... was pretty much a double garage with single stretchers and one double bed separated by a organza curtain and no hot water. ( First world problems I know) The region in which we were staying was aptly named Arsenale too - close to a canal and really quiet with washing strung out on pulley operated washing lines back and forward between the apartments.Anyhow thankfully it was only for one night - the shower woke us up pretty quickly and as it ...

... until suddenly the bus stopped, the driver yelled something in Italian, and all of the passengers got off. One thing I’ve learned since being here is when in a foreign country and you don’t know what’s happening, look around and do whatever the locals are doing. So, we followed suit and hopped off the bus. No seemed as worried, confused, or baffled as we did. We had no choice but to act fast, it was raining hard and we had a train to catch. Luckily I ...

Gondola rides & Mussels: Venice

A travel blog entry by laceyk3


... else who was brave enough to try a bite. I could never have eaten all, if any, of that meal because it was seriously jet black. All of their stomachs were hurting later that night wonder. haha
After dinner we went on a Gondola ride! Everyone kept warning us that it was going to be a rip off but it wasn't too bad! We paid 20 euro for 30 minutes. It was really cool to see the city in such a way, especially at night. I was really happy we did it because ...

    Liked this hotel, but had some problems


    We just returned from two nights at this hotel. There was some good points and some bad.

    Loved the Excelsior!


    Our family just stayed at the Westin Venice Lido from May 28th through May 31st. We found the hotel to be wonderful!

    As Beautiful As I Remembered!


    I stayed here 5 years ago, and it was as beautiful and low-key as I remembered. If you want someplace quieter than the main island which is really busy and swarming with tourists, the Westin Excelsior is a good choice. There is a courtesy water shuttle that takes you to the three sister Westin hotels that are just off St.Mark's Square. They run every hour, which is helpful. It does put you on a schedule, though. But we didn't mind because it was relaxing to be able to get away from the fray of the main island. For a 5-star hotel, it was very reasonable (approx. 245-euros, including breakfast).

    Pool and beach under construction


    Stayed there last week; the room was nice, clean and spacious. There was construction work at the pool, which was closed, and the sand on the beach was still being leveled; which is quite a disappointment for a seaside hotel! I don't understand why this has to be done in springtime; or do people swim in the outdoor pool in winter??

    Very special retreat


    A very special retreat away from the hustle bustle of Venice, especially in the Summer when we went. The complimentary water taxi, to and from the lido is quite a long journey, but is worth it for the views.

    Enjoyed our stay at the Westin Excelsior


    October 9th to 11th we enjoyed staying at the Westin in Venice Lido. Wonderful room with a lovely view. Great breakfast also. Staff very cordial.

    Great quiet hotel in October to get away from the crowds. The Adriatic Sea views were breathtaking.

    Romantic Hotel


    Good choice to enjoy two separate locations, the hustle and bustle of Venice and the beach and swimming pool at the Hotel.



    Although it has been since SEPTEMBER 11th we will never forget the wonderful time during a period of great difficulty for our country. The hotel was super, the accomodations fabulous, and we were treated like royalty. I would definately go back. Thanks to the staff for helping us in a very troubilng time! The "Lido" was all we expected!!!!

    Liked the Westin on the Lido


    Enjoyed our stay here - location is fabulous for those that want to be able to escape from the swarms of tourists in the city at the end of the day. Note that it is a 20 minute boat ride from Venice. Hotel faces Venice on one side and the beach and adriatic sea on the other. Rooms were very large for Europe and well maintained (westin heavenly bed and shower are a plus!). Decor was a little dated - the hotel is famous as it was the original resort on the Lido. Done in an arabian theme. We loved touring old Venice all day and retreating to our quiet beach hotel at night. Take the public ferry from Lido in and out of town - its faster and more fun!

    Hotel Excelsior


    This hotel was not quite what we expected. It was quite a luxurious hotel in it's hay day of the pre 1970's. We found the rates good but they matched the rooms that needed a definite makeover, being decorated in the arabian style many years ago.The staff were friendly and helpful and it is located right on the Adriatic with a pleasant beach and patio areas. Though I have never liked it at a hotel of this type when they insist on charging you 16 dollars for a mixed drink and 20 dollars for a simple sandwhich. Venice is expensive anyway but we did not eat at the hotel much when we were there.The motor shuttle will take you for free to three possible locations in Venice taking about an half hour but riding on the lagoon is very nice and relaxing.If you come from the train station don't take the 85 dollar motortaxi, if your traveling light, walk to the Hotel Gritti Palace (a Westin Hotel) and take the free shuttle to the hotel.
