“Tiniest bathroom ever made!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2008

We stayed at the Ambasciatori in Mestre on September 29 and 30, 2008, as part of Globus' Best of Italy and Sicily tour. The bathroom was the tiniest I have ever seen, with a triangular shower that a large person could not turn around in. If you drop the soap, forget it! The room itself was too small for both of us to open our suitcases on the floor at the same time. The nice touch of rose-colored marble in the bathroom did not make up for the extremely cramped quarters. It was hot in the room, and there was no way to make it cooler. Globus should select another hotel for these tours.

  • Liked — Rose colored marble in bathroom
  • Disliked — Tiny bathroom, tiny room

After being in Venice, I am convinced that booking a hotel in Mestre is the right thing to do. Mestre is 10 minutes bus drive from the central bus station in Venice. Ambasciatori Hotel has a bus station (number #4) just outside the hotel, which is great.
The hotel is very nice and the staff was welcoming.
The price was very good for a 4 stars hotel (130 Euro per night).

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. In their website it says 5 minutes walk from Mestre Train station to the hotel, but we found more like 15 minutes walk, carrying our luggage’s through the not so fine footpaths, to reach the hotel. While on no. 15 ACTV bus from Marco Polo airport, there are no stops listed on the bus! So we had to ask the passengers where to get off to reach Mestre train station, which was our destination.

To reach Venice from the hotel is conveniently located. There are bus stops on either side of the road to reach Venice, and return to the hotel. Bus no. 4, which is just opposite side of the Hotel takes directly to Venice, taking only 10 minutes. The two lifts that service the hotel are small and so is the bathroom. Breakfast is good and staffs are friendly.

Bus no. 4 takes you to Piazale Roma, where the bus stops and you start to explore Venice, mostly by boats. The boat stops at all the main spots, San Marco, being the busiest place, where the main attractions are. On the ACTV bus, which are common and the main public transport, there is only the driver and no one checks your ticket, you supposed to flash your ticket in front of a machine, just like Oyster card in London’s Long buses. But mostly passengers just hop on and off.

We took a trip to Lido beach and Murano, which is a bit Quite and hoped to find cheaper Murano glass than Venice, since it was built there but not so. Couldn’t see any glass making, told by a sales assistant that due to heat they stopped working during the day.

For shopping Rialto is better than San Marco, where prices are more expensive.
