This is a very nice hotel right on the Lido beach near Venice. It's clean, comfy, rooms are small but sea views are great, and the staff were extremely nice + the lobby area is pretty and full of light. The outside isn't that pretty, it's a modern structure made of concrete but depends what you like, don't expect quaint or cute. The real point though is that it's really not a 4 star hotel. I'd say it's a very good 3star. So, if you pay a lot for it, you will be disappointed, whereas if you got a good deal you'll enjoy your stay and the hotel.
The rooms are nice, not huge, but comfy with good beds and functional very clean bathrooms. We had a room with a little terrace overlooking the side street (but you could see the sea if you sat on the terrace). I highly recommend getting a sew view room. I peeked into one and they're much nicer and the view is really very good. Again, it all depends on the price. If you get a very good deal maybe the side terrace is fine, if you pay more, definitely get the full sea view. Note: you will hear the sea, all night. I found it relaxing but depends on the person
Some other things you need to know:
--The hotel is practically on the beach and you can stroll freely and even take a quick dip, but the beautiful sea cabanas you see from your windows aren't property of the hotel and you'll have to rent them for a high price if you want one for the day
--Lido is surrounded by water and a lagoon so mosquitoes can be a problem in the evening, bring bug spray
--Takes a moment to figure out how to get from Lido to Venice proper (vaporetto boat and then taxi, or walk, or bike to the hotel) but once you know it's fine.
--Breakfast was good, continental, so not huge choice. There were scrambled eggs and some cold cuts, but really you could tell they just concentrate on the bread, jam, cakes, yogurt
--Get a bike to explore Lido, it can be fun. Ask staff for suggestions on nearby restaurants as you have to walk a little bit to find one
