“Worse hotel I’ve ever stayed in Italy”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

I have stayed with my family for 2 nights (17-19.04.2014).

The only advantage of this hotel it’s close to city bus station for destination Venice, a small supermarket just around the corner and close to the main square. However to Mestre Railway Station you have to walk abt. 25 min. In my case it happened to have a flight early morning from Treviso airport so instead of walking with luggage I preferred to take a taxi to bring me there to catch the shuttle bus at 05:45 hrs. to the airport. Taxi driver charged me with EUR 13,- for such a short distance (1.4 km) and shuttle bus to Treviso airport costs EUR 10,-

Hotel is not domestic at all. You are not allowed to iron and use the hair dryer (which is not available anyway ) or any other devices such as kettle (there is a sticker in the bathroom). In this respect you have 2 sockets, one in the room and one in the bathroom, both located 2 m height ! Even to charge your mobile phone or iPad is a problem! Small room, no parking, no fridge in the room, internet quite expensive and of bad quality. And it’s calling 3 *** hotel ?? :((

10 minutes walking from the mestre fs is a good deal for avoiding staying in venice it self and getting to know where most people lives.

No plugs in the room, 4 m2 room, average breakfast, cable tv with just infomercials. Just as "i don't have another option hotel".

Decent hotel, clean room, close to the bus station, supermarket and restaurants.
Good quality/price ratio. I would recommend it for people who don't want to stay in Venice, especially during the high season .

Booked this hotel for a few nights as part of a British Airways break. At the price we paid, I was expecting very little and had concerns about the locale. I shouldn't have.

The rooms were clean, beds comfortable and the shower pressure great. Hotel wifi is expensive and offers poor value as it is dearer than VeniceConnected which can be connected to throughout the city. I would have liked to have seen fruit and the option to add cold meats to the breakfast, but it was fine all the same. The staff throughout were wonderful.

The location is fine. It is very safe and there are a number of places to eat close by, far cheaper than in Venice proper. Actually, by not staying in Central Venice, you get to see two sides of the city. It takes around twenty minutes to get to Venice Island!

Hope to stay again...

The hotel is located in Venice mainland. Frequent buses operated during the day can get you to the island. The bus stops to the island and airport are conveniently located near the hotel. Definitely good value for money.

Clean and tidy budget hotel with small room and no frills. (ancient wall hair dryer had been "repaired" with masking tape which gave up) Reception staff attitude varied, some fun, some rather curt. Breakfast was all cake and uninspiring bread, no fruit, meat, cheese or yogurt so don't expect to fill up and miss lunch! Our room faced the square and all day sun so was exceptionally warm, too hot to sleep well even though the aircon (was it working?) was on all the time. Traffic noise made leaving the window open not a happy choice. Mestre market on the Friday was huge and interesting, well worth a browse. Very handy for the bus into Venice and close to a handy supermarket. As to VENICE We bought travel passes and the Venice museum card which was good value and enjoyed getting in and around the sites. Unfortunately very many of the people employed to help the public and tourists were bad mannered and aggressive, especially at the vapouretti ticket offices, don't expect to get much help, it is easy to get the impression that the locals like your money but don't want you there. All in all though a great place to explore and swoon over the amazing buildings and views. Our break was on a Groupon and was good value and much enjoyed.

Reviewed 17 January 2014

We stayed for 2 days in the hotel in the first week of May. The hotel is nice and clean with good breakfast spread, but it is in Venice Mestre, which is far from main Venice old city which is the attraction. You will need to take a bus and will take around 25 mins to reach Venice. The bus service ends pretty soon (around 7) in the evening and if you are staying for dinner and all you will have to take an expensive taxi ride. It would be wise to spend a few extra bucks and stay in main Venice. Traveling from central venice on to the mainland is also time consuming as you need to take water taxis or walk all the way, venice is very crowded with tourists and it becomes a problem. all in all, expect the location the hotel is pretty good for the price. It is around 20 mins walking from the Venice station and bus stop is nearby. There are not many good eating places around but that is the case with venice mestre.
