Le Boulevard Hotel
10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
Avoid 4th Floor
"The rooms on the 4th floor of this hotel are very dark with steeply sloping ceilings and dormer windows / skylights which are too high to see out of. The hotel may be a 4-star but these rooms are definitely not! The hotel is on a street with bars, restaurants and loud music - so choose somewhere else if you are after peace and quiet!"

Good place to stay
"Hotel le Boulevard as others have said is a good place to stay. Convenient for Venice mainland via the vaporetto, rooms were generally on the small side, but clean and comfortable. We also found the staff to be friendly and the service to be excellent. Careful of restuarants on the Lido though. We went to one, La Sfera, which was overpriced and had a rude waiter, and one (next to the hotel) called Roxy gave me food poisoning. Go to Santa Croce instead and visit Alla Zucca, which unusually for Venice has some great vegetarian food."

Great postion on Lido
"Stayed for 9 nights in late July. Good position for families, it is on the main Lido boulevard. 10 minutes walk to the beach - worth hiring sunbeds - and 2 minute walk to the Lido waterbus connection for St Marks Sq. The crossing takes 12 minutes is regular and runs throughout the night. Combined sight seeing with a beach holiday, whole family loved it. Hotel very comfortable & clean, decent breakfast and very helpful front desk people. This area of the Lido was very family friendly. Local cafe/bars are good especially Bar Maleti just outside the hotel. Restaurants in surrounding area OK but basic, worth a 15min walk to eat at All Artigliere, Via Sandro Gallo - exceptional. Or hop on the boat and eat in Venice, we loved the family run Vecio Fritolin, 226 Calle Della Regina a short walk over the Rialto bridge in the San Polo district near the Palazzo Moto."

Great Place to stay
"Wonderful stay at the Hotel Le Boulevard. It is located on the island of Lido, which is away from the tourists. The location is near the water bus, near the main area, walking distance to the beach, the staff is wonderful, the rooms are unique and comfortable, and finding it was very easy. When staying on the Lido island and you plan on going to Venice (main area) just make sure you purchase a 24 or 72 hour water bus pass, which is cheaper. You will be taking the water bus to get to where you need to."

Very Highly Recommended!
"A fantastic hotel! Great location - near to lots of resturants and shops, and a 2 minute walk from the water 'bus' stop (the jouney from the main part of Venice to the hotel is a treat in itself!) The staff were really helpful and friendly, and recommend places to go, finding out trains times for us etc. When we were leaving the hotel we missed breakfast but the staff brough us coffee, juice and croissants in the bar! We only made it down to the breakfast in time once and it seemed okay, and for the price and location (compared to what you would pay for a similar hotel on the mainland), Hotel le boulevard is great value. Our room was very clean and spacious an had a small balcony. The Mini Bar was cheap although there are bakeries, bars, and a supermarket quite close to the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Venice and looking for a cheaper alternative to the expensive hotels on mainland Venice, without compromising on comfort, service and quality."

value for money
"this was only my 2nd experience of booking a holiday direct over the net (i.e. flight & hotel)..went to venice for 4 nights in late April early May 2004 but found the effort rewarding (saved Â£200 per person from the brochure). Anyway Hotel in excellent location.. found the staff very helpful.. rooms were clean and not bad a size .. as the other reviewer stated breakfast was a bit hit and miss .. hunting the glass, for water or juice was always the highlight of the morning..Overall found the hotel very good value for money...(booked deliberately late via "rates 2 go" part of Hotel) and would not hesitate to recommend it."

"The best thing about this hotel is the location. 2 minutes walk from the waterbus stop on the lido, not a problem with suitcases. The hotel room was well decorated and clean; facilities were good. Noise from other guests was a problem at times; walls were thin! Staff were very well dressed, polite and multi-lingual. They were very keen to please. The worst thing was the breakfast. Although there was plenty of choice, the quality could have been better."

We will be going there again! Chow..."

The best ever- Le Boulevard on the Lido
"We just returned from venice, used the internet to find a hotel with Trip Advisor -found the city amazing and the hotel La Boulevard on the Lido the best we have ever used. Hotel really deserves business- Massimo the concierge gives the professsion a good name-brilliant advice and top class information , with his colleagues Bernardo(night porter) and management team make this hotel a home from home-The rooms are lovely and even though we arrived a day early and late at night they went to unbleievable trouble to accomodate us-and while there are many rooms available in late October , early November-choose this gem on the Lido. A four star wtih three star prices and five star service."

Beautiful hotel, poor customer service
"A disappointing experience despite the beautiful decor of the hotel and room. The horrible customer service we received greatly dimmed the comfort and enjoyment of our stay."
