We stayed at Smart Hotel Holiday for 3 nights before getting on a cruise.
Before we left England I emailed the hotel to ask about a shuttle transfer from the Airport, I received a very quick response and this was sorted out with no problem, when we landed our transfer was waiting for us which i felt was very good service.
The hotel was clean and we were very impressed with our room which was modern and comfortable.
The breakfast was nice although more choice would always be good.
We ate in the dining room in the evening on one occasion, the food was nice although the choice wasn't great, just a set menu, I would expect more pizza/ pasta dishes which was lacking, but i guess that is just personal preference.
The hotel staff were all lovely and very helpful.
The hotel was set quite a way from Venice itself, however the hotel has a shuttle bus for 5 Euro's pp each way which takes you direct to and from Venice- we used this to get to the port also.
We purchased a public transport card from the hotel to last 36hrs (25euros pp), this allowed us to get on and off the vaporetto's, trams and buses as many times as we want. We were told by the hotel staff what bus and tram we needed to get to get back to the hotel from Venice so this was pretty easy to use.
Overall we were impressed with this hotel, if you are looking to stay very close to Venice, this isn't the hotel for you, however if you don't mind exploring and are reasonably confident with public transport then this hotel is perfect.
I would stay here again as it was clean, friendly and modern, especially now knowing how easy it is to get about on the public transport system.
