Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Casanova Venice
We stayed at Villa Casanova for our honeymoon in July 2004 and enjoyed our stay at this hotel so much we have booked again for our first anniversary.
Everything about the hotel was great. The location, in a quiet area but still only five minutes away from the vaparetto to Venice itself, the staff, who were friendly and more than helpful, and the hotel, which was clean, comfortable and very welcoming.
I can't recommend this hotel enough to anybody who wishes to have a relaxing stay but also wants to to be able to reach Venice centre within 10 minutes.
The Lido itself has plenty to keep you occupied and is worth spending some time on. We hired bikes for the day and enjoyed cycling around the island and seeing some of the areas that we most probably wouldn't have got to see.
Just got back from a 2 night stay at this hotel.
I really recommend it. Nice rooms, pleasant staff and a wonderful location on Lido. I recommend staying at Lido instead of staying in crowded Venice. Real value for money at this place! We're coming back next time we're in Venice.
Stayed at the Villa for two nights with my wife and 2 year old son. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. The breakfast was great and the location is wonderful! Thanks for everything!!
What a delightful stay, clean, warm, comfortable, very quiet and an excellent breakfast had by all. Only 5 minutes from the water bus and 10 to St Marks Square. Would recommend it to all and a big thank you to the staff.
Small family hotel. Lovely friendly staff. Nothing too much trouble.
Can't wait to go back.
Great little hotel!
This hotel is situated on the island of Lido, which is only about 15 mins on the waterbus from San Marco square, making it cheaper than most hotels on the main island. The hotel itself was only a short walk from the main waterbus stop on Lido, which was very convenient as Lido is a few miles long. With only 12 rooms, it is a fairly quiet, but pleasant hotel. Our room was on the top floor and was a good size, very comfortable, clean, and included an ensuite bathroom (with shower), reasonably priced minibar, and satellite TV. The room was cleaned every day and fresh towels were available when needed. A buffet breakfast was included in the price, and the freshly-made cappuchino every morning was lovely! All the staff were friendly and helpful, and i would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle (and expensive prices) of the main island.
The only possible problem with the hotel would be the lack of lift (elevator). However it's not so bad as the top floor is the only second floor.
If you plan to stay on Lido, visit a few museums in Venice, and travel to some of the other islands, i would definitely recommend buying a "VeniceCard". This allows full use of public transport for a certain number of days and can also include museum entrance fees and entry to the staffed WCs in the city... well worth the money as waterbuses are relatively expensive when used a lot! We more than made back the cost of the Card during our stay.
We travelled to Venice in November (2003) as during the peak season it is extremely busy and hotels tend to raise their prices considerably.
Our 4 night stay in Villa Casanova cost us a very reasonable 255 euros.

... if they have gone from mood lighting to being able to see in the room, it's very funny. Sometimes you are ready to leave the room before it is light!
The floors are flat-ish compared to our floors in Nice. Our bedroom there dropped 25ch from one side of the room to the other with two legs of the bed built up with various sized blocks.
Bottom line, with all it's quirkinesses, we are enjoying Venice.
Phil- I lost a bottle of scotch tonight!

Early ish start this morning. Paul and Danita headed over to one of the local Cafe/Restaurants to pick up some Tuna and egg and tomatoe sort of triangle sandwiches I could best describe them as only to be told they won't be making them for another 2 hours. Managed to grab them a bit later.
Today we decided to go on a 'Gondola' as the weather was pleasant and it was forecast to rain for the next couple of days (for the record it didn't ...

All that in one day! So eventful! We headed to bed knowing we had to be off the boat by 9:00.
Will catch-up tomorrow in Barcelona for the second half of our adventure!

... were virtually empty, most lights off. Everyone just turned in so fast. We walked our way back to our hotel, stopping in various shops, including one for gelato and one in which Kristen and Ali stopped for ten minutes to get the dead skin eaten off their feet by fish. That was quite interesting! We went back to the hotel then and spent about an hour with the eight of us taking turns showering and playing cards, then headed to bed. It was a great day, and I seriously love ...
