We have just returned from spending 3 lovely days at HOTEL AL VIVIT and we were pleasantly surprised and very satisfied with our choice of hotel. The primary reason is the location in lovely piazza and while we were there a festival of sorts was being held and there were tents set up with beautiful Italian foods, flowers and all sorts of products. There are numerous restaurants and outdoor cafes to enjoy a spritz or glass of wine and people watch while dining.
Although our room was small, it was clean and the bathroom was recently upgraded and had a huge shower. There was also a small balcony from our room and it was lovely to be surrounded by flowers. Our room was literally under the near by church bells which we enjoyed You are within walking distance to the bus which will take you to the train in about 10 minutes, and from there Verona, home of Romeo and Guilletta, is only a little over on hour away. The breakfast room and the small terrace was a lovely setting to enjoy our breakfast. The offerings were more that adequate and the staff very attentive.
We were pleased that we decided to spend our three days in Mestre before our cruise rather than the hustle and bustle of Venice. A cab from airport to the outside of the piazza where the hotel is located was 30 euro but after a long flight we felt it worthwhile. The price of a cab into Venice to begin our cruise was 40 euros but the advantage is that the cab can deliver you and your luggage, literally to the steps of the cruise terminal thus avoiding finding your way over bridges or through crowds.
We would highly recommend Mestre and the Hotel Al Vivit to anyone considering a trip to the Venice area..
Hotel Al Vivit exceeded our expectations.
