Editorial review:

This resort is designed like a Moorish palace and has a pool, beach, large workout facilities, and delicious food. It's easy to get to St. Mark's with the free motor boats, but some feel that it's becoming outdated. It's closed from November to March.

        • Group of friends

          it's a very special hotel from the beginning of the 20th century, some parts would need a little new-make-up, but it's still very beautiful. Just a pity that breakfst is not served at the terrasse facing the sea.....

          some of the rooms are very dark and old-fashioned

        • Family with children

          Hotel is a romantic place very good in summer time when sunny as best beach side hotel.

          There were no children recreation area or activity what so ever which make it rather boredom for children espicially when weather is not good for beach/swim activity.

          Not recomend this hotel,this is my opinion.people shouldn t get screwed with the pictures ll pay the price for bad ;more to say.

          I didn t like the attitude qt the reception at our arrival,they goes by the looks,and so called lorenzo at the reception,he was so agressive,i left it to all my wife to deal with it;he s lucky.and the should precise that the tents out on the beach,are not free;payable for 120 euros a ;more to say really:wasting my time.nothing will change with this hotel.

          We were only at the hotel for 6 hours, it is difficult to rate for such a short stay

          They do not take U.S. dollars

          My two-night stay lived up to all my expectations. The restuarant was good; breakfast excellent; and the pool a delight. Perhaps greatest perk was the motor boat shuttle to and from St. Marks Square.

          Beautifully located on the Island of Lido. A private ferry run's approx. every hour to Venice. Beach was nice but it was too cold when we were there to swim.

          We were a young couple that had been traveling around Europe for a month and were trying to stay within a budget. The concierge were very "snooty" that we would even ask how to get to the airport by public ferry rather than rent a private water taxis. Overall I found them rather unaproachable.

          It is a nice experience and shuttles between the hotel and the city were well organised. the hotel 's view is fantastic

          there is no service at the beach .you either rent an expensive cabana to be able to relax on the beach and spend the day or sit on the sand using a towel without food or drinks

          The service staff was professional and polite. Room service was fast and the food was excellent. The team was at my beck and call and always smiling! The location by the beach is beautiful!

          The carpet in my room was filthy, twice staff tried to enter my room without knocking and charging for computer usage is crazy in 2010. No wireless for my iPhone and 10 euro per 1/2 hour is outrageous! I have worked in a 4 star hotel that was above and beyond Hotel Excelsior! I have booked 5 hotels in Italy and for the price this has been the most dissapointing to date. I'm bummed, this was my special treat!!

          There is no better place to stay on the Lido than the Excelsior. It is a perfect place to escape the heat andd the tourists in Venice, while being close to all hot spots.

          The hotel is in dire need of major renovation. We had to change rooms because of poor sewage, which was easily arranged. Our friends roof collapsed from the rain and they hadd to cchange rooms too

          Great location, free boat services to Venice

          The beach use is for extra money so most of people prefer to stay pool-side. To get to the sea from the pool takes time as it is long way around through terrace and cafe
