We were on a family break and this was a great spot. It is a 20 minute launch ride to the centre of Venice but that is easy to do, although the boats leave on time so don't be late otherwise you are stuck with a €50 bill to get a taxi. The hotel is something of an institution in...

I stayed at the Hotel Excelsior with my family for a couple of days. The hotel is excellent and staff were very helpful and friendly as well. Our room had a great view of the Lido beach. However, I would like to pinpoint a couple of drawbacks. 1 . There is free taxi service to and from the hotel to...

Arrived from Canada to meet my parents arriving from the UK at the airport. The water taxi to the private dock at the Excelsior was amazing, felt like we were in a movie!

Arriving by ferry to a magical city is indeed special. Entering the hotel into a grand marble lobby that opens to the beach and sea is elegant with a touch of the past. The architecture reminds me of Hollywood films of a bygone era. The Moor-ish style details create a decadent atmosphere. Wander the grounds along the seaside or in...

We stayed there last summer in a sea facing Junior suite. Marvelous hotel, great location on Lido which in itself was worth a visit. Excellent free commuter boats from the hotel to San Marco place. Venice is always nice. At the hotel the pool area is very nice and the beach is perfect with kids.

I stayed in the Excelsior when it was at full capacity for a week and beginning of the season. The property is a unique old Moorish style castle-like building. Arriving by boat to a magical pier that leads straight to an underground entrance to the grand building lends drama to the experience. The entrance lobby is stately grand and the...

We stayed here to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and had a lovely stay.

Undoubtedly the most beautiful asset this hotel has is the enchanting dock...
