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 It's easy to get to St. Mark's with the free motor boats, but some feel that it's becoming outdated.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.


The elegant Hotel Excelsior Venice Lido Resort is a 5-star property located in the historical center of Venice. Founded in 1908, the hotel underwent a complete renovation in 1994.

The peaceful location gives quick access to St. Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco), Venice International University and Public beach. Hotel Excelsior Venice Lido Resort is also located near Palazzo Mocenigo, Congress Center - Venice Film Festival and isola di Murano.

The hotel is placed next to restaurants, golf courses and casinos. You can make use of a sun terrace, a patio and a tennis court on site as well.

The hotel offers 175 rooms. All of them feature satellite TV, individual climate control, a minibar, a laptop-size safe and Wi-Fi. Some rooms offer breathtaking views of the park. They all have Venetian floor and comfortable furniture.


Every day a sumptuous breakfast is served in the dining room. At the outdoor restaurant guests can enjoy Italian cuisine. At the fabulous cocktail bar guests will enjoy a selection of aperitifs.

              • 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

                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.

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

                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
