More about Hotel Villa Stella

Our Lido Holiday

by A TripAdvisor Member

This was our second visit to Venice (Lido) and our second stay at the Villa Stella. We enjoy this quite little villa and enjoy the great people who work there. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Warm friendly Hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

Very clean hotel , excellent buffet breakfast, friendly and helpful staff.

Would recommend to anyone!

Family run and friendly

by A TripAdvisor Member

We have stayed at the Villa Stella twice a year for the last seven years. They also have an apartment which is good value if you want to take family and friends. The apartment is self-catering, of course, and you don't get any domestic service whilst you're there but all wants (towels, soap, loo rolls, washing up liquid) are supplied in abundance and there's a washing machine. The hotel does an excellent continental breakfast with cereals, breads, cheese, salami, pate and preserves. They don't do any other meals but there is a super restaurant called The Artigliere, literally a few paces away. On the main street of the Lido, the Gran Viale, there are numerous cafes, restaurants, bars and a Billa supermarket. When we've been there guests have ranged in age from young couples with children to the more mature.

Villa Stella is family run and one of the sisters (it passes down the female line)is generally in attendance. They all speak excellent English. There is a garden to sit in and they will always get you a drink or tea and coffee, though most people tend to be out most of the day. It's a hotel to sleep in not to spend the day in - though nobody minds if you want to hang about - but why would you when there's so much to see? There is also a fridge in your room stocked with drinks. All the rooms have private facilities, loos and showers. There is always hot water. There isn't a lift so ask for the first floor if you can't take stair climbing.

The advantage is that the Lido (de Venezia, not the touristy de Jesolo)is quieter (outside the Film Festival, of course) than struggling to find somewhere affordable or not on top of the station or the Rialto and up five flights of stairs. The Alilaguna boat from Marco Polo (Easyjet) calls at the Lido or from Treviso, if you have to fly there (Ryanair - and Treviso at present is more like a large shed) you get on the No 1 boat at Piazzale Roma and go all the way down the Canale Grande to the Lido. (Buy your three day transport tickets at Treviso when you pay for the Ryanair bus.)

You can walk to the hotel from the landing stage in about 10 minutes but your travel ticket allows you to hop on and off the 'B' bus or the Circolare, if you don't want the walk. If you do choose to walk, there is a bar and a fabulous greengrocer (try the peaches and the figs)on the way.

We normally stay just after Easter in late April or May, before it gets too hot and in September, after the Film Festival but whilst the Biennale is on.

Thoroughly recommended. A number of our friends have stayed there on our recommendation and said they enjoyed it, too.

Loved the small family owned hotel

by TripAdvisor Member csp_oct03

We spent a couple of weeks traveling Italy this summer and our first stop was Venice. We found a hotel on the internet, Hotel Villa Stella which is on Lido. Lido is about a 15 boat ride from Venice on the water taxi. We weren't looking for a four star hotel, all we wanted was a good place to sleep and some breakfast. The hotel was great. It is a small family owned hotel with maybe 12 rooms, all equipped with A/C, bathroom with shower and a TV and very clean. Each morning a woman would come in and serve breakfast, out on the patio if it was nice. She made great coffee, it was a perfect start to the day. Then we would take the bus four a 5 minute ride down to the water taxi stop and watch the city of Venice as our boat got closer. Lido is in between Venice and the adriatic sea, so you get the best of both worlds. If you are looking to relax for a day you can head to the beach, it looked very peaceful there. A lot of folks were also jogging and bike riding along the sidewalk on the shore.
A recommendation for Venice, take the water bus late in the evening, around the last run and start at the top of Venice and then end back at your hotel. It gives a great night tour of Venice without paying and arm and a leg for a private taxi. There weren't too many people on the bus and we sat outside on the back to really catch a great view of the city. Also, the gondola is a must for a great tour of the small canals throughout the city. Enjoy Venice!

Charming Villa Stella

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Villa Stella is a charming and pretty B&B located on Lido di Venezia. We had the family room which was furnished with Venetian Decor and a modern ensuit bathroom. This lead out onto a lovely balcony where it was nice to sit drink coffee and write postcards. The Villa was in a nice quiet area and it was very peaceful sitting out in the pretty garden. Breakfast served a range of items to suit both European and Western persons and the morning room was very pleasant. We found the staff to be friendly and courteous. Anything you needed they were only too happy to provide and we formed nice friendships with many of the staff members. Bear in mind that there is no lift, as in many Venetian buildings and there may not be an appropriate staff member on duty at the time of arrival to assist with luggage. Also, we found for the best places to eat for other meals was on the main shopping strip of Lido not far from the ferries. When it was time to leave we were taken down to the ferries and told which was the right one to catch which opened open yet another part of Venice we hadn't seen. We left on a happy but sad note as we had formed such an attachment to the place.

Charming little family hotel

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband and I really loved this little house.Excellent staff, especially the young owner Micaela.We had a standard double, not very big, but Charming, fresh decorated and quiet( there are only 2/3 rooms facing the street, anyway Lido by night is quiet).The housekeeping was excellent, the bathroom was very clean.The buffet breakfast was wonderful,great capucino and a lots of good products.
On second day the owner offered the two bikes and we explored this fantastic and green island.
This is our third stay in Venice, we reserved this time in Lido and was fantastic.We highly recommend Villa Stella.

Cozy, Comfortable and Quiet

by A TripAdvisor Member

A superb stay was had while at Villa Stella. To have a lovely place to rest, yet be close to Venice, Murano, Burano, etc..., was absolutely perfect for us. As it was our honeymoon, and this was the last leg (Paris and Rome previously) we needed quaint and quiet. With both my wife and I born and raised on the east coast of Canada (but now landlocked in Central Canada), it was fantastic to be on the water when traveling to and from the various islands.

The homey feel of Villa Stella was a pleasant surprise and the breakfast was a treat when heading out for the day. The rooms were very comfortable and well decorated. I would definitely recommend this beautiful little hostel for couples who want to get away from the mainstream, yet still be in it.

Best Regards.

Perfect little family hotel

Easy boat ride from centre .Over all a very nice family run hotel best small establishment i have stayed in. Hope to come back next year again

Lovely family run B & B

by TripAdvisor Member Theboxer

Thoroughly enjoyed four days at this lovely hotel. Has a cosy family atmosphere with very pleasant staff and much appreciated personal attention from the family who own it. Breakfasts are fantastic; our room was very good with a really comfy bed. Situated in a lovely area of the Lido, very quiet but a short (and very frequent) bus trip to the Vaporetto with an equally frequent (and atmospheric) ten minute boat trip across the lagoon to Piazza di San Marco. (When we say frequent we mean turn up and your transport magically arrives!) Highly recommended - if we go back to Venice we will look to use the same hotel.

My husband I and just returned from a most magical trip to Venice. We opted to stay on Lido a 10 minute boat ride to Venice.

We stayed at a Pensione (Bed & Breakfast, small Hotel)
called Villa Stella. What made the trip so wonderful was our experience at Villa Stella. It was not only inexpensive, it was so charming and lovely I can't wait to go back again. The owner Michela and her most accomodating staff were truly the most hospitable people that I have ever encountered on a trip. The breakfast ( included in the cost of the room) was wonderful!!!! We absolutely looked forward to that every morning.

The rooms were quaint and pretty and the entire Villa is beautiful and extremely clean. It was a nice alternative to the hustle bustle of Venice, yet close enough to get there. Next time we'll go back in the summer so we can take advantage of the beautiful beach that they have there.

Michela and her staff made sure that we had everything that we needed. They gave us tons of information on what to do in the area. They arranged a trip for us (for free) to the Island of Murano and Burano as well) Michela arranged for us to go to the Casino in Venice. She even ran out to get me an aspirin when I needed one!! Imagine that! Where do you ever get that service.

Michela, Alberto and Tina made us feel like we were part of the family. Also, because this is a family business, there are so many personal touches that you don't get when you stay in other places.

I found them on the Internet [------].

Don't worry they speak many languages as well!! We don't have our pictures back yet, but you can get a good idea from the website.
