Like other reviewers, we were booked in for two nights by Thomas Cook before a cruise.
If you travel by bus from Venice get detailed instructions before you travel, about which bus and where to get off. Taxi is a safer start, specially from Marco Polo airport.
The bus leaves from outside the hotel and goes to the bus station at the top end of the Grand Canal. You can get 12 hour rover tickets for bus and vaporetto (water bus) from the tobacconist next to the hotel. The reception has maps and bus information.
If you arrive at the hotel expecting to get something to eat you will be disappointed, there is no proper restaurant in the hotel or nearby within walking distance.
The rooms are decorated in a shabby chic Venetian style, but there is a definite real shabbiness which is disappointing, storage is limited, the rooms are small and the public areas are untidy. There was only enough light to read a book in the bathroom!! Our bed, however, was comfortable and the bathroom was reasonably clean. Room 407 has a massive balcony area which would be good in hot weather but very noisy from the road. We never found the TV remote, so we don't know if the TV worked. Breakfast was very disappointing even for our low expectations, no cheese or meat, a cornflake dispenser that didn't stop dispensing and a choice of dry biscuits. I have never been offered chocolate Swiss roll for breakfast before. The choice seems dictated by what is on special offer at Lidl up the road.
I suggest that Thomas Cook find somewhere better in Mestre for their guests as soon as possible!!!

Room Tip: Corner rooms on 4th floor (407) for balcony Road is noisy

We were booked into this hotel for 2 nights prior to a cruise by Thomas Cook. It was awful, dingy and dark.Our room had broken unusable furniture and no drawers for clothes, cheap laminate flooring that was all peeling and a broken tv with an array of dangerous looking wires hanging from it. The bathroom was clean but with a very slippy floor and no shower curtain so everything was wet. Breakfast was served in a very cramped space but tasted ok. The biggest problem was the lack of eating facilities in the area in the evening. The nearest restaurant was a bus ride away and the last bus back was 8pm. Why a reputable holiday company would use an awful hotel like this is beyond understanding.

Stayed one night post cruise thanks to Thomas Cook!! Allocated a room on first floor with a bathroom which was disgusting. Mould all around the shower tray and ceiling, toilet right in front of shower tray, cracked tiles, extractor fan totally clogged with fluff, and one energy saving lightbulb which took an age to heat up. Had to beg to get air con on, sheets on bed were damp due to humidity, view from window was over a buliding site with rubbish. Would not give this hotel one star, has definately seen better days, nowhere to eat for miles so go to the Lidl supermaket and buy provisions!!!! Thank god it was only one night. Breakfast w as OK, the usual breads cereals etc, the staff were actually quite nice I felt sorry for them with the nuber of complaints they were getting, young man on reception said what did you expect for the price? well that would have been a fair comment if I had booked it myself but as it was included in my cruise package I never thought that Thomas Cook would send its customers to a hotel of such a bad standard. Definately NOT 3 star more like 1. If you want a very cheap hotel within striking distance of Venice this is the one for you if not steer clear,

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony or terrace I believe these are slightly better.

Be careful about booking into this hotel. It is not as near to Venice as you may think and the bus services are not as good as they make out. Taxi services are expensive. The facilities in the hotel rooms are really poor - we didn't even have air conditioning, My advice would be to spend a little more money on something better, especially if you can get closer to Mestre centre or even better Venice itself!

We stayed for 5 nights. The room was basic but clean. Towels and sheets changed daily. Bathroom again basic but clean. Shower could have been better but it did the job. Beds comfortable. Breakfast was adequate - who goes abroad to have a full English? Croissants & coffee available - say no more. Staff were friendly and helpful. About 25 minutes from Venice if using public transport and the bus stop is nearby. 20 minutes steady walk into the centre of Mestre where there are several places to eat or drink.

We stayed at this hotel for one night after getting off a cruise (not a good idea). After being treated like royalty for a week and then end up in this less than average hotel, was a recipe for disaster. Checked into the hotel, quite gloomy reception, as are the landings to the bedrooms. From the website was expecting...
