Located in the heart of the Venice Lido, and built at the turn of the 20th century in 1905, the imposing 4-star Grande Albergo Ausonia & Hungaria was originally the favourite haunt of Austro-Hungarian aristocrats visiting Venice. Harking back to the beginnings of the fortunes of the Venice Lido as an exclusive holiday resort, the Grande Albergo Ausonia & Hungaria is a beautiful and elegant reminder of a bygone era. From the hotel lobby, through the American Bar and the restaurant, right through to the rooms, guests are sure to appreciate the grandiose architecture, antique furnishings and classical ambience of the hotel. Facilities are comprehensive and in keeping with a hotel of this category, but it`s the hotel`s style, outdoor terrace and location which are the real selling points. Located no more than 5 minutes` walk from the vaporetto (water bus) stop, guests can reach St. Mark`s Square and all that Venice has to offer, in no more than 10 minutes.
