Surrounded by peaceful gardens, Villa Mabapa is an Art-Nouveau building with a quiet location on Venice-Lido. It is 700 metres from the Lido San Nicolò water-bus stop for Venice's historic centre. Free parking is provided.
Rooms at Villa Mabapa have a classic design. Most have wood floors, while all feature air conditioning, a minibar and tea and coffee-making facilities. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.
The restaurant serves a combination of international and Venetian cuisine, which can be enjoyed out on the terrace during summer by candle light. An American breakfast is served daily.
Lido beach is around 10 minutes away on foot, while Venice is reached in 20 minutes by water bus.
Ideally situated on Lido Island, a stones throw from the boat, which take you to other parts of Venice, including Piazza San Marco. The staff was excellent - very professional, polite and answered every question; the breakfast was delicious!! We loved the setting - beautiful with gardens, by the water, with a terrace for an evening glass of wine or spritz. We would return to Hotel Villa Mabapa!!!
The hotel looked very nice, cosy with nice garden etc. It was a pleasure when entering the hotel.
The staff seems to be grumpy sometimes.
Clean and very big rooms.
No restaurant, no free tea/coffee which should be standard in this category, parking slots for free but ferry with 100 EUR for car with 4 people very expensive, water taxi to Venice casts 6 EUR per person one way and beach usage 13 EUR. No pool and/or fitness facilities. Location is in the middle of the island and no view to water as claimed. Summary: ridiculous expensive for offered value.
Our final night here and the dinner was the best of our whole holiday. Bedrooms good but pillows hard. Location to ferry excellent but hotel should warn guests with cars that queues for early ferry can be llong. Recommend buying return ticket when boarding in Venice so separate short queue for pre-bookers.
The hotel was in a great location with fantastic views across the lagoon. The terrace garden was really nice, the breakfast good and the room was spacious and well equipped.
first room offered was small with one tiny window and a sloping ceiling making it quite claustrophobic, second room had been sprayed with a very powerful chemical spray to cover up dog smells and it was filthy and damp, the third room was what we should have got in the first place and was roomier, with much more light.
daytime reception staff were condescending. there are only 6 very cramped parking spaces for 70 hotel rooms and their comments of parking out on the street at front of hotel is very misleading. in the 4 days we were at the hotel parking out the front was never available. we had to park at least 1/2 km away. be wary if you are expecting parking onsite or on the street out front you better be visiting in winter!!
The location, size of the room and all facilities worked - the air con was tremendous & the safw worked. These don't often work in Italian hotels. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly and helpful.
There could have been more fresh fruit at breakfast.
The location and the grounds The staff were very good and helpful
The breakfast was poor, with little fresh fruit and a limited selection.The Restarant is terrible and expensive
Quiet good quality hotel, good food and service, comfortable rooms, caring staff especially when considering the children.
Narrow lifts made it difficult to access with a push chair. Wheels had to be taken off chair!
Friendly, helpful staff, away from the busier parts of Venice
Mini bar not replenished each day,coffee/tea making not replenished and plastic mugs and spoons not acceptable for a 4star hotel in our experience. Soap disappeared on two occasions and not replenished. These were only small irritations but irritations nevertheless. Otherwise very good.
