Villa Casanova is situated in a very green and quiet street on the Lido. I liked the view on little palm trees from my window, the quietness of the location and the fresh air. The staff are very welcoming and warm-hearted. Very helpful. This villa offers proper value for the money - not overpriced like the central areas of Venice.

It was a bit of challenge locating the hotel as despite the map, we had to ask 2 people for directions. But eventually when we got to it, we realized that it was just 5 mins. from the water bus station. Overall the place was nice, quiet and homely. Our room was spacious enough for 4 people. Breakfast was of satisfactory variety although it was not replenished immediately. The receptionist Flor was very helpful with transportation tips and corresponded with me about our stay even before we arrived.

My wife, 18-year-old daughter and I just had a great time here. They have a bunch of free bikes in the back yard -- everybody bikes on Lido -- and the staff are friendly, welcoming and competent. The fabulous breakfast, functioning air conditioning, flowers and garden seating all make for a great place to stay. Just over a 1-minute stroll to ferry and 2-3 minute bike ride to beautiful sand public beach. Loved it!

Staying in Lido is definitely worth considering if you are visiting Venice. We brought our rental car on the ferry from Tronchetto and parked it at the hotel. The vaporetto runs very frequently between Lido and the main island and itself is part of the Venice experience. Hotel Casanova was a great place to stay. The innkeeper Alessandro is very hospitable, answers every question, provides maps and advices, and offers a wonderful breakfast. Definitely a place we would come back to.

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Casanova. We stayed in a room with a queen bed, a single bed and a cot. The room was a little tight for 4, but would have been fine for 3. It is an older house with an old world charm about it. It was a bit loud at night as you can hear everyone walking up the stairs and chatting. But that was not much of a problem. Amazing breakfast (best in 5 weeks of travel) catering to all nationalities and great coffee by Alessandro. There is a little garden area to sit and have a drink and the kids can run around. Staff helped with ferry timetables, directions and restaurant recommendations. We loved being on Lido, a few minutes walk to the ferry to Venice, beach, restaurants and shops.

Hotel Villa Casanova was full of charm! Alessandro (the owner) was just amazing---you can tell that he puts his heart into his efforts. He recommended a great, moderately priced restaurant near the hotel for us that we loved. Our breakfast (included) was the best we had in Italy! Our room had character and was clean and spacious. We enjoyed staying on Lido (going to the beach, viewing St. Mark's from waterbus and getting away from the crowds) and considered it a surprising plus to our visit to Venice. We thought that our stay at Villa Casanova was the best hotel experience of our trip---and definitely the one with the most personal touch.

An ideally located, charming and clean little hotel with extremely friendly service. Highly recommended! The room was sufficiently spacious, as well as comfortable once we had figured out how to get the a/c unit to produce heat... (Our visit was in October.) Noise was restricted to some creaking of the floors, nothing serious. The hotel is in a quiet residential street but at the same time less than five minutes' walk from the Lido vaporetto station and the main street where you'll find the restaurants and boutiques. Last but not least, the Villa Casanova breakfast is excellent by continental standards.

We really liked our room at the Villa Casanova with its wonderful wooden beams and floors which compensated for the lack of a view. Our 12-year-old daughter found her corner particularly cosy. The welcome we received was warm and friendly. We assumed there would be no problem with the car park as on our reservation it said parking included. However, we were told on arrival we should have let the hotel know we needed a space. This point should be indicated on the website. Luckily everyone was very cooperative and space was found.The breakfast buffet was excellent and staff were helpfull at all times, always ready with a cappuccino.

Sorry for the delayed rating, but this place is well worth a return visit. The staff was immensely helpful (with the small exception of a language issue in the early morning, but it was quickly solved), giving us directions and a wonderful recommendation for dinner. The neighborhood is quiet, it's a short walk to shopping and to the beach, and we felt very safe in the area. Our room was clean and very cozy. Without a doubt, they offered one of the best breakfasts we had during our whole trip. Definitely something for everyone. It's a must to visit there again one day!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Venice. Villa Casanova's staff are simply the most friendly we encountered during our 4-weeks Europe trip. It has a homey feel to the villa & the service. As soon as we arrived, we were warmly welcome by Alessandro &, before we asked, he gave us one map of Venice & one of the local area, giving us direction to the supermarket if we ever needed it, restaurant recommendations & trasport info. There were also bicycles on the property free for guests' use. Our room was a bit old, but was clean. There was always a warm greeting in the morning as we walked in to the breakfast room, offering us tea/coffee. Location is also good & easy to find - 10 mins walk to the vaporetto stations & plenty of restaurants & cafes within walking distance. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Venice. Keep up the great work, Casanova!

It is excellent hotel, great place for families with children. Of course I suggest a special place for children in garden. If you book apartments for four people family where are child and mother in low and if you think that there will be separate rooms it should be specially note.

Villa Casanova is ideally located within 5 mins of the vaporetto stop, which takes around 15 mins to get to St Marks. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The breakfast is what you would expect from an Italian B+B but the fresh coffee is very good. The breakfast room is rather limited for space in winter but I'm sure in summer it would be better to use the tables in the garden. There is no full time reception here but a number to contact the owner if there are any problems, which there were none. Overall a very good hotel and I would recomend Villa Casanova to anybody travelling on a budget who wants facilities you would normally only get in a much more expensive hotel.

Villa Casanova was my favorite spot on our month long trip through Europe. Alessandro was amazing and the place is charming and quiet. I wasn't sure how staying in Lido would be (I stayed in Venice my last trip) but it was brilliant and I'd rather stay there anytime. It's a short walk from the waterbus to Villa Casanova and only a 10 minute waterbus ride to Venice. You can buy a card that covers unlimited transport and entrance to the museums that's decent value for money. Rather than being inconvenient, the trip out to Lido at the end of each day was a welcome change from the rather cramped streets of Venice. The hotel is in a lovely, quiet area and is very warm and welcoming. Breakfast was great and the room we stayed in was spacious. I'd definitely stay there again.

Leaving Cinqueterre, we departed for our drive to Venezia. My wife was a little apprehensive, as we knew we had to take a ferry to Lido from Venezia, and as such we didn't know what to expect. Let me tell you, arriving around 6pm into Venezia towards the ferry, the apprehension rose as we saw the stinky marshes surrounding Venezia and on which it was built. Then things started to turn for the better. Our Garmin GPS lead us to the ferry, to a tee, without problems. We parked the car on the ferry, and went to the top deck, to observe our journey towards Lido. By this point, the night was setting in, and a nice treat was to see a Costa cruiseliner leaving and maneuvering through the larger surrounding canal, with its top showing next to church bell towers, which our own ferryboat followed. Upon arrival on Lido, villa Casanova was a 5 minute drive, which was very easy to get to. And guess what folks, free parking!!!! Where can you get that in ITALY?????!!!! The villa is nicely lit, exuding a very warm, welcoming feeling. We were promptly greeted and given our set of keys to room 11, which is on the top floor of a 3-storey villa. Without even seeing the room, my wife had such a good feeling, that she asked to extend our stay for another night. To her delight, we were able to extend our stay in the same room. We lugged our suitcases to the 3rd floor (note folks, how many times do we have to say TRAVEL LIGHT, in our reviews), and opened the door ... and tadaaaaaa we loved it!!! The room felt very rustic, with exposed beams and wood floors, that creaked in some spots, which we loved. It has simple furnishings, but a nice surprised was a fridge that was stacked with goodies, for a fee. This is not usually the standard in B&Bs. The bathroom was simple with a stand-up shower. The only thing that could be improved here were the shower doors which stick, as you try to slide them, as well as a re-cock. A great value in this B&B is usage of Wi-Fi FREE internet, as we had a lapt

This is a nice place to stay. We enjoyed our time in Venice. It is just a quick walk from the water taxi. My husband and daughter and I thought it was fine. We were in a top room/attic room and it was a little snug but comfortable. The breakfast was great and the owners were very nice.

We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Casanova and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It is in an excellent location in a beautiful and quiet residential area about a quarter mile from the Lido vaporetto stop and the downtown area of Lido. We would recommend Lido for a quiet rest from the congestion of Venice after seeing the sights each day. The hotel is exceptionally clean and comfortable, with a wonderful breakfast buffet each morning, complete with your choice of coffee, tea, cappuccino, latte, etc., all freshly made. The proprietor was most courteous and helpful. We would definitely stay there again if we have the opportunity!

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Villa Casanova. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location was very quiet. The beds were rather uncomfortable and the room itself was in need of redecoration, but it was very clean. More of a B&B than a hotel and price reflects this.

An excellent B&B which lived up to all our expectations. Alessandro could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Be careful, though, because the "superior" room is labeled that way as it has an additional single bed. We thought it was because it had the 4-poster bed, so ended up paying for a bed we didn't need. No problem.

An oasis in Venezia. So peaceful after the Venice mainland with its hoards of visitors. Lido is green and leafy with many trees, plenty of restaurants, a few shops and a relaxed atmosphere. Villa Casanova was a great place to stay at a great price and very easy to locate (a short distance from the Vaporetto stop) when arriving with suitcases.

Alessandro is SUPER nice, always with a smile and ready to help. The hotel is very well located and easy to find. The vaporetto is only a 5 minutes walk and believe me, you need to stay on Lido if you want to sleep at night. Very quiet neighborhood and restaurants are plenty to be found around.

Very nice place- quiet and clean. Good breakfast. Excellent coffee. Very helpful staff. Rooms very small and some upstairs rooms with low beams requiring caution when walking around. Closeness to transportation a big plus. We would stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.

Great location, friendly staff, spacious and clean room. Staying at the Lido when visiting Venice is very pleasant. The hotel is located in a beautiful and quiet street, still it is conveniently close to the water bus stop and close to the Lido's main street where you can find loads of restaurants. Beach at a walking distance. Water buses run every 10 min. (every 20 min at night 24/24) to the main island (San Marco square about 15 min ride).

We stayed for two nights at Villa Casanova during our vacation. I thought that staying on the Lido would be a disadvantage, but that was not the case. The Villa Casanova is in a quiet, elegant neighborhood that was a relief from the congestion of Venice, and getting around on the vaporetti was remarkably easy. Our room was spacious and comfortable, very quiet, and the service and staff were excellent. I would definitely stay at the Villa Casanova again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Although not "just renovated", still a very very NICE hotel, very friendly and trustfull athmosphere, nice staff, nice guests. Superior room is OK, but rather standart... though clean, spacious, cool, with all you need, etc. Breakfast is FANTASTIC! Price is great for Venice! Lido is OK, has nice cafes and pizzerias, and it's very pleasant and truly romantic to take a vaporetto first thing in the morning and to come back home in the night by sea... We loved our stay there, and absolutely nothing disappointed us. Thanks to venere.com we'd made the right choice.

Our stay at Villa Casanova was overall very pleasant. The bed was comfortable, room very spacious and comfortable and the staff friendly. There were very nice restaurants and shops within walking distance and Lido was so much more laid back than Venice - a great place to wind down after a long day battling with the tourist hordes. Only disappointing thing (and this is a wee-bit trivial) was the morning coffee.

The location of the hotel, although on the neighbouring Lido island, has a very convenient location. The surrounding area offers food stores and restaurants. The access to Venice island is easy. It is actually quite nice to cross back the lagoon (10-15 min from St Marc's plaza) at the end of the day or the night.

We have just returned from 3 days in Venice. 6 adults and 2 children to celebrate a 25th Wedding Anniversary. We have stayed on Venice Lido before and were a little dissapointed when our usual hotel was unable to offer us two triple rooms and a double. We were able to book the rooms we needed at the Villa Casanova and decided to "take a chance" .... From the outside the Villa Casanova is not too impresive and is really a big independent Villa in a residential road. It's not a HOTEL but more a guest house. The location on the Lido is almost perfect and a genuine 5 minutes walk from the Vaporetto stop on the quay. The "Ingresso" or reception is fairly basic but adequate .. HOWEVER the rooms are of a standard that would compliment a quality hotel. We had three rooms in total. two triple rooms on the top floor and a romantic double room on the second floor that included a four poster bed. All the rooms were very nicely decorated and clean throughout. The bathrooms were fully loaded with clean fluffy white towels and everything else you would need including a hair dryer. The rooms were much better than we expected and we really could find no fault at all. The shower was instantly hot and powerful. the Air conditioning or heating (Its the same unit) was responsive and worked well. Bed was comfortable and everything was spotlessly clean. On our previous visit to Venice Lido we stayed at a four star hotel .. We all agreed that the ROOMS at the Villa Casanova were probably better! ..... Even the Frigo bar offered chilled mineral water for €1.50 or a small bottle of Prosecco for €3 .. Soft Drinks were €2 ..... We all know that most "Hotels" LOAD the prices on their frigo bar drinks .. but here we were pleasantly suprised as the drinks were actually fairly inexpensive. Where the Casanova falls a little short is "downstairs". BUT it's important to remember that THIS hotel falls into the "ECONOMY" bracket and the prices we paid for our rooms were AMAZING ... It fe

Sehr angenehmes Hotel. Am Lido zu wohnen hat mehrere Vorteile: Man kann mit dem Auto zum Hotel fahren, Vaporetto ist leicht erreichbar, es ist preiswerter. Villa Casanova ist eine tolle Alternative zu Stadthotels.

My wife and I stayed here on our Honeymoon. The staff were excellent, welcoming and friendly (and this was before they knew it was our Honeymoon!). The hotel itself is just a few minutes walk from restaurants in the Lido and the main waterbus stop for the island, but far enough away that there is no noise from either. Warm and welcoming, the hotel is well furnished if a little outdated in places but overall this just added to the charm. While we were staying there were plenty of families with small to teenage children and all seemed as happy and relaxed as we were at breakfast, which was a modest but well stocked continental breakfast buffet, with the staff serving real coffee in their familiar relaxed yet professional style. Overall we loved this hotel - it helped make our honeymoon the special occasion we wanted it to be. If you are looking for ostentatious and lavish you might be better looking elsewhere but I'd recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a relaxing, romantic holiday

All was perfect, but we have 2 problems 1. Is an old house, and if you are in the first floor, and the upper room walks across their room, you hear everything, so it's annoying when the second floor people arrive at 12 at night 'cause you wake up. 2. There's nobody in Lido in winter

We really liked the Villa Casanova, and the 10 minute ferry ride from St. Mark's Square wasn't a problem. We enjoyed getting away from the maddening crowds of Venice. Take time to explore Lido. The beach is only 10 minutes away from the villa. The villa was very nice, the breakfast was excellent.

What a find. Had never stayed over on the Lido - and would now not think of staying anywhere else when going to Venice. The hotel was spot on - an absolute haven away from the madness of St Mark's - but only 14 minutes from the Piazza on the boat. Take the time to explore the Lido - there is a wonderful bar on the beach on the other side of the Lido where you can drink great wine and watch the Adriatic - without spending a fortune. Would heartily recommend the Villa Casanova - only thing was the directions from the website weren't great - but a very helpful local chap actually walked us round to the hotel, which was only a few minutes from the Lido stop.

Estuvimos 5 días en Venecia de los cuales la primera noche fue en este Hotel y realmente hemos quedado muy satisfechos, la habitación era la suite romática y era muy cómoda. Otro punto añadido que desconocíamos era que se incluye en la habitación la posibilidad de utilizar bicicletas del hotel para trasladarse y pasear en Lido. En resumen es altamente recomendable.
