We did not research enough about Venice and ended up in Best Western Hotel Biasutti in Lido, Venice. Lido is a remote Island of Venice. It is very beautiful island with a beach, and clean streets with lots of tall trees. Only transportation to and from Venice or airport (in Mestre) is water taxi or water bus, which is time consuming and not cheap. We had a few heavy luggage and it was painful for us to carry into the hotel and from the hotel to the boat station and to the airport.
Best Western Hotel located on a quiet street in a residential area. Hotel itself looks pretty form the outside. Our room was small and cramped. The bathroom was tiny also cramped. Towel hanger was sitting top of the butt washer, and towels kept falling into the butt washer bowl (gross!). Bathroom equipped with a not functional Jacuzzi tub. Another weird thing was 4oz wired size room keys, bothersome to carry. Some of the hotel staff were not friendly at all except a few front desk staff. Especially, English gentlemen were very polite, professional, and helpful. Breakfast selection was good, but no coffee or tea serving on the table. Everything was self-service, very wired. Beds are small, but comfortable. Another added good feature was laundry room in the vicinity, although, it is kind of expensive.
This Hotel may be good fit for the honeymooners or someone likes to be secluded on their vacation, but not people like us, who wants to explore and spend most of the time in Venice.
Next time we will stay in Mestre, Venice to avoid all the hustle we experienced on this trip. less
