How this is 4 star is beyond me. Bar NEVER open, only food is a cold breakfast. OK fixtures and fittings very good, so....?
Why do tour companies use this, when down in the square at the end of the People-mover are good hotels at abou £25 more ??

Room Tip: Don't, go somewhere else.

We stayed for 2 nights in July, prior to a cruise on Ventura. The hotel is adequate but the rooms are not welcoming - very dark and basic. My main problem was the very hard bed which was the equivalent to sleeping on a shelf! Needless to say, I was not pleased to board the ship. The breakfast was very limited in choice.

Stayed here prior to cruising on P & O Ventura in July 2014. Spotlessly clean. Polite helpful staff. A good meeting place for pre-cruisers. Agree with many of the comments made about it being a suitable stop over. We took the local very crowded bus from the airport - a mistake as we missed the stop nearest this hotel. Driver didn't understand our request for the hotel stop and we ended up pulling heavy cases to a taxi point!

Very clean! The rooms are very basic and perhaps a little dated but fine for just a city break as you don't spend much time in your room anyway.
Breakfast wasnt anything to write home about, massive lack of choice. Pretty much bread, ham or yogurt! Only hot thing was toast!
Staff were really friendly and helpful and check in was super quick!
The bus stop to go to Venice is about a 5 minute walk away and is really cheap! Only takes about 15 minutes and runs really regularly throughout the day, but you must remember to buy your ticket from the tobacco shop before you get on the bus!

I would highly recommend getting a coach in Venice back to the airport instead of a taxi!!! From the airport to our hotel we paid about £60 so decided to see how much a coach was going back and it only cost us 10 euros each & it took us straight to the airport door!

If you are expecting quality in a hotel, perhaps this is not the place for you. If it is just an overnight stay and then you move on and you are happy with a basic room with basic amenities then this is fine. Breakfast is easily forgettable, so is the hotel. The redeeming factor for us was that this was just a short bus ride away from the best place on earth ---- Venice

We stayed here between 22-25 June 2014. Rooms are clean but smell of smoke. Toilets are stuffy as they don't have effective air conditioning. Avoid drinking the water, juice and beer in the fridge because it will cost you more than the room.
Breakfast is same everyday, but avoid the salami and ham.
Female staff are very nice, and i would go back just to help them keep their jobs. One of the male staff was a little arrogant.
I have been to Italy several times and seems that everybody, including the government is looking for a way to swindle you.
If this hotel was in another part of Europe, it would be a 2-star. Avoid it if you can.

The President hotel in Mestre is spotlessly clean but very old fashioned. There is an overpowering smell of a airfreshener or deodorant all over this hotel. There are 2 small lifts.The beds are big but hard the bedding good and clean, The bedroom furniture is dark and gloomy, although the bathrooms have been moderised with a shower, WC, wash basin and a bidet. The towels are white and good quality. They supply shower gel, soap and shampoo.
The reception staff speak quite good English and are very helpful. It is less than half a mile to the centre of Mestre. There is a bar in the hotel but it was not open. Breakfast is the usual continental meal and self service. The boiled eggs are cold and if you want salt they produce a huge salt mill!! it made us laugh....
Our stay was pre cruise for 1 night and again 1 night after our cruise so I don't know how much it costs to stay there. They do supply a room to store your baggage if you arrive too early to book in your room, which is handy. I would rate it a basic clean 3* hotel not the 4* we were told it was.
The taxis are very expensive 30 euros from the airport to the hotel and 50 euros from the hotel to the airport. We were told it would be 25euros by the taxi driver and on arrival to the ship a matter of approx 6miles he asked for 50euros the 25euros was a just depost! Be sure to find somebody to share taxis if you can.
