“Great alternative to staying in Venice”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights prior to taking a cruise out of Venice. We have stayed in Mestre before mainly because of the price vs. hotel quality compared to Venice. We get a 3-day transit pass which allows you to take the bus and valporatto (water bus). You can than get back and forth and around Venice very easily. As stated in other reviews, the Cris is conveniently located near the train station and bus stop. You can purchase a bus pass at the hotel and the staff was very helpful and knowledgeable in explaining where the bus stops where and which buses to take. The hotel provided a nice continental breakfast (juice, coffee,rolls, slice meat, yogurt, etc). When booking, compare prices to other hotels in the area and if you get a competitive price, I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We've spent (unfortunately) 2 nights in this hotel - unfortunately because we wish we could stay longer. Its location is excellent - about 5 mins walk from the train station, and 2 mins away from the bus stop, via which you arrive in Venice in 20 mins. The rooms are very modern, with a spacious ensuite bathroom, flatscreen TV, and free Wifi. It is kept impeccably clean, and the staff are very welcoming. Breakfast is also very good. We did not stay longer as we wanted to sleep 2 nights in Venice, but had we known how easy it was to get to and from Venice I think we could have just stayed at Hotel Cris. Recommendable to anyone visiting Venice!

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking their carpark - very quiet and cosy.

A handy place to stopover if visiting or passing through Venice. Friendly, helpful, close to stop for direct airport bus (around 400m away). Clean and quiet, good breakfast and close to bus stop to get into or out from Venice itself. Likely to stay there next time we are heading for a cruise boat.

We stayed here for one night, and used it as a base to visit Venice.

Arrived with no reservation, but that was no problem.

The room was very pleasant, the bed was very comfortable, I thought the room could maybe do with a lick of paint.

The staff were extremely helpful, and we got bus tickets to Venice at the reception.

There was free secure parking.

Breakfast was fantastic.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

Me and my friends stayed in Hotel Cris for three nights. The hotel is small, but very nice and pleasant, very clean and comfortable. Towels were changed every day. You have all necessary amenities there: hairdryer, safe in the room, free wi-fi, private parking for those with car. And it's not expensive.
Breakfast was decent and delicious. Bus station is 2-3 minutes from the hotel. The train station, although they say is 4 min away (maybe if you are a fast walker), it's actually 7-8 min. normal walk. But still, it's not far.
In the hotel they sell tickets to and for Venice. Bus costs 1.30 eur one way if you buy it in the hotel or some tobacco, and 2.50 eur if you buy it in the bus. It's 20 min drive to Venice.
The water bus costs 7 eur in one direction, so it's better to buy a daily ticket that costs 18 eur, and you can drive around Venice by boat. The bus from Mestre to Venice is also included in the daily ticket.
If you plan to visit Murano island and see the glass blowing, you better do it before 5 o'clock, because after that, they are closed.
At the end, if you want to see more of Venice, I recommend at least 2 whole days.

The hotel was above our expectations. Great price, extremely clean and comfortable, pleasant rooms and baths. Very conveniently placed, near train station, restaurants and supermarkets. The parking is a little crowded in weekend.
