My partner and I stayed in the hotel for three nights in order to visit Venice.
From the outside, the hotel is less than impressive, and is situated on a main road, in Mestre. The hotel is definitely not a 4 star hotel. The décor in the rooms and the general facilities are basic and gloomy. We literally used the hotel as a base, and spent our days travelling around Venice. I can't imagine ever wanting to stay in the hotel rooms for any length of time, apart from to sleep.
Breakfast was the best feature of the hotel with a good selection and a nice range of continental foods. There are pastries and cereals, toast, juices, meats and more. It is better to get down at the beginning of the breakfast period, so as to get the best selection.
We stayed in a room overlooking the carpark which was quieter than looking out onto the main road. Make sure to ask for a non-smoking room. Our room was always clean and tidied during the day. The décor is dark and basic so would not recommend staying in there for anything over than sleeping.
I personally don't like Mestre town, but it does have all local amenities. The location of the hotel is near to the bus that takes you to Venice, and the bus takes around 15 mins so good if you don't want to stay in Venice. It is about 10 mins from Mestre train station but took us 1 hour to go by coach to the airport.
The staff are friendly and helpful and made our stay more enjoyable as they often helped us with our travelling questions and giving us information about Venice.
Bar is never open and can't see any chance for any other food than breakfast. There was wifi which worked well for me. The bathrooms are good and clean.
OVERALL: Good hotel on a budget but very basic and not a 4 star hotel. Staff friendly and breakfast good.
