We stayed here after our Mediterranean cruise and it was a quick taxi ride from the port. Also it's an easy walk to the train if you want to go into Venice. The room is big with a comfortable bed and a fair sized bathroom.
Our only complaint is that the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything in the hallway and outside. No privacy for noise wise at all!

Definitely one of the nicest modern hotel rooms I have stayed in for a European 4* rated hotel.
The front desk staff where extremely friendly and helpful.
The barman was fantastic, and the cocktail prices where very good (I wish I had went down to the bar the night before)
Two minutes (if that...) from the station. The station is one stop from Venice. If you don't want to pay the super high prices for a hotel room actually on Venice island, then this is a great hotel to stay in. The immediate surrounding area is a bit grubby but if do decide to eat local prices are incredible value for money. I will certainly stay in this hotel again when I return to Venice again with my wife. To finish off as we had a late flight decided to get coach to airport, 5 minute walk to coach station, and nice modern coach took us to the airport 6 Euro each (As opposed to 40 Euro by taxi)

Room Tip: We was in room opposite side to station & main road, and we never heard any noise

I was traveling with my family from Rome in the night train and we arrived early in the morning (6 a.m.) in the nearby Venezia Mestre train station well before the check-in time. Of course we were not expecting to enter in our rooms at that time but it would be nice to have a warm welcome and some interim solution until our rooms were ready to be used. Instead the air conditioning was put in freezer mode inviting us to leave the hotel. At that early time rooms 247 and 249 were being prepared for us. We took our breakfast at the nearby train station and went for a short walk in Venice. When we returned after lunch we were told that our rooms have been changed from 247 and 249 to 124 and 125 at a lower floor (usually lower quality rooms). No explanation was given to us for this change. It should be said that I requested a quiet room but these new rooms were far from that, not only the sound insulation was poor but the street was quite crowded until late night. Besides these issues the hotel is a reasonable value for money in the current hot Venice hotel market.

Room Tip: Run away from rooms x10 to x26 if you want to sleep well

The Hotel is one train stop away from Venice. The location is perfect for pre and post cruise. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and warm. There are good restaurants closeby and American fast food brands.

We selected the Best Western Bologna Hotel in Mestre after reading the Venice Travel Forum here on Trip Advisor. We are in our 50's and recognized that Venice in July would be hot and packed with tourists, and we did not relish the idea of dragging our luggage onto the vaporetto, up and over bridges, and through a maze of narrow side streets. Additionally, we were looking for a place that would be economical, close to the train station, clean, and with air conditioning. BW Bologna turned out to be all these things and more. We easily booked on-line for a 2 night stay in July (Saturday and Sunday), but what we did not realize was that the 2 nights we booked just happened to be during one of the largest festivals held in Venice: The Festa del Redentore, an annual 2 day religious festival with fireworks over the Giudecca canal.
In spite of the fact that this is one of the busiest weekends in the year for the area, the staff at BW were amazing. One of this hotel's best assets is the staff, who are all very service focused. Because of the festival, almost all public transportation schedules were disrupted, and many of the Venetian restaurants did not have seating available due to reservations that were pre-booked months before. Elena at the front desk patiently answered our one million questions, and we watched as she and her colleagues patiently repeated the answers for many others who had the same questions. Every question was met with a genuine desire to help out the customer. Tips and suggestions were offered on things we hadn't even thought of.
The hotel was very clean and modern, and quite large by European standards. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was fairly spacious with a large shower separate from a bath tub. Breakfast was included in our price and had a large variety of items including bacon, eggs, and made to order coffee/espresso drinks.
We bought a travel pass which covered the vaporetto and the bus back and forth between Mestre and Venice. BTW the bus ran very frequently and the stop to go into Venice was across the street from the hotel. When we departed Mestre, we took the airport express bus to Marco Polo airport; the stop for that bus was about a block down from the hotel.
I highly recommend this hotel if you are going to Venice and the area, and you are looking for an excellent hotel for much less than what you'd pay elsewhere.

We stayed at this hotel because it was across from the railway station and bus stops to Venice, also because we were planning to take the train to Switzerland later
Very modern and clean with included (good) breakfast
Staff was a standout; friendly, helpful advice given with genuine wamth
Some reviewers found the area mediocre, but I fail to see why, found a great restaurant minutes away and shopping, just ask the staff what is where!

Stayed here two nights before a cruise. Directly across a four lane street is the train station to venice in 10 minutes. From the airport we took the local bus, (which is a nice coach with plenty of room for luggage underneath) and were at the bus station right down from the hotel in 20 minutes. Buy the ticket inside the airport by the exit door. We walked with luggage about 100 yards straight down toward the hotel, no problem at all for us 3 with 7 bags!!! Hotel had free wifi which daughter loved, quiet room on third floor facing station, and breakfeast was descent considering the Euro just kills us when we travel!!!. Felt safe and ran the entire town of Mestre every morning including a laundry mat down the road that we used prior to the cruise. Do be aware that Train strike do happen, which we found out the morning of the cruise!! We walked across the street to the local bus bought three tickets and rode the bus right to the port. about 10 bucks compared to taxi rip off of $150 us from hotel...which were booked by serveral people that were still waiting as we got on the bus. Great hotel highly recommend.
