Lovely old fashioned hotel
Lovely stay in an unusually old fashioned hotel. The rooms were lovely but the bed was so hard. Not sure if this is the norm for Italian hotels as all three that we stayed in had the same issue.

Easy to get to as it's right opposite the water bus stop. Our room was on the road side so it was extremely noisy, especially early in the morning with traffic. Great breakfast options and very friendly staff. The room was traditional , comfortable and very clean. Only real issue for me was the situation of the shower. The shower screen wouldn't move, so you had to climb in via the back of the bath but the bidet was in the way and nothing to grab hold of, worse when reversing out. Not an issue if you are young and nimble. I'm not. :)

Excellent stay in a room with a view
Another wonderful stay in this conveniently located hotel. Staff are very helpful and friendly and always quick to resolve problems and answer queries. I must say that prior to our stay they went to great effort to book our favourite local restaurant for us. We were blessed with stunning sunsets over the lagoon from the rooftop as well as the balcony.

This was our third visit to The Riviera and our reasons for returning was the excellent service and accommodation previously provided. On this occasion we discovered that our booking didn't include a room with a balcony - important for my wife's need for easily accessible fresh air. After making our concerns known the Manager Piero Padovar make a phone call to me in the hotel and said that we could move room the next night - at a very reasonable additional charge. We also discovered a bottle of champagne in our room the following day, which happened to be my birthday. So a potentially disappointing experience was turned around with professionalism and generosity. It remains our favourite hotel in Lido, Venice.

Great place to stay. It is right at the beginning of a street full of beautiful restaurants and shops. On the other side of the island are several beach resorts that you can walk to. It is also right across the street from where the water taxi drops you off to the island.
