Hotel Ambasciatori
Ranked #39 of 58 Hotels in Mestre
Reviewed 6 April 2010

We didn't really stay at this hotel because we made a mistake when booking our hotel. Who on earth knows that there are millions of hotels named Ambasciatori Hotel in Italy. We originally planned to book the Ambasciatori Hotel in Palermo but had booked this one by mistake. Once we found that we booked it by mistake and called them immediately when we received the booking confirmation within 24 hours. Yet they said it is clearly written in the booking site that cancelation is not allowed.

No refund .... no refund .... Felt like they just want to rip us off even we told them that we couldn't stay at their hotel because we are indeed traveling to Sicily. We even sent them our flight ticket as a proof. After rounds of negotiation, they still refused to refund (not even 10 or 20%) but offered that we can go there within 1 year. We explained to them that flying to Italy from HK is so expensive and we couldn't afford another tour to Italy within a year.

But ...... they don't care!!!

If you are looking for a hotel with friendly staff and sincere service, think twice before you pick this one!

The stay and price were pleasant. The hotel is near the train station which we can get to Venice in 10min.

We went on a Globus tour...Ambasciatori at Mestre is where we stayed while in Venice. This wasn't unbearable...but if I had a choice I would not have stayed here. The bathroom was clean...no mold...shiny tiles....but the rugs were shabby...and the room smelled of smoke. If you are in Venice it would be much better to stay around St. Mark's Square....worth the splurge. There is nothing around this hotel and judging from the graffetti...I'm not sure I would want to be walking around at night. Two people's luggage was stolen upon arrival...between the time it was unloaded from the bus and placed in the lobby.

Hated this hotel. Was away from everything except a grocery store, which was nextdoor. But I'm on vacation, I don't need a grocery store! The room was old, worn, very dark, and dirty. Breakfast buffet was typical "European" fare. Breads, croissants, cereals, fruits, yogurts, juices, eggs (not done enough for scrambled). Would not stay here again. Did not choose this hotel, it was part of the tour package.

This hotel is located about halfway between the airport and the port so it is a very convenient base for those embarking on a cruise. Venice itself is a difficult location for those carrying heavy luggage, especially if, like us, you're a senior citizen.
This hotel is located in Mestre, a suburb to the north of Venice, and is conveniently situated close to restaurants, shops, etc. If you wish to spend some time in Venice, there are buses from right outside the hotel.
It is then just a short taxi ride to the port to join your cruise ship.
The hotel is very clean, comfortable and well furnished.

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.

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).
