My fiance and I decided to book this room due to the reviews from Tripadvisor. We really didn't want to spent over $250/ night staying in Venice in a two star hotel, so this was our best bet. We spent $110/night and it was well worth it. The hotel is located about a five minute walk from the Mestre train station. It is a convenient location from the station. There are a few cafes in walking distance but we always had dinner in Venice and then took the bus or train back to the hotel.
The staff is wonderful here. They speak great English and can answer any questions you may have. They have internet available (first 15 minutes are free) and it is available 24 hours a day in their computer room. They also had a breakfast buffet, but my fiance and I didn't partake in it. It did look like a typical European spread, breads, cheese, juice, and looked great. For about 2 euros though you could get a sandwich and coffee at the store next door to the hotel. Just a tip.
The beds in this hotel were fine, but the room was very small (we got the room with a private bathroom). If you open the window you will definitely hear the road outside, but it is not a loud street. The bathroom was surprisingly large for this hotel (since the room was so small). I would rate this hotel a 2.5 star overall. It would do for one or two nights, but not any more. If you are a larger person, beware of the shower as it is extremely small and I cannot see any larger people being able to move in it.
The one downside to this hotel is that you can hear the hallway noise from the room. There is not a lot of noise barrier from the walls, but it was a fine place to stay in just to sleep.
I would recommend this hotel to the budget traveler who does not want to spend hundreds of dollars for the same star hotel in Venice. It was worh it.
