“simple hotel with very helpful staff”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights with the intention to travel into Venice to sightsee. The staff were very helpful with information on how to get into Venice and where is good to eat as I was on my own. The room I stayed in was simple but comfortable and had everything I needed, it also had wifi. I would recommend this hotel if you want somewhere with reasonable price and don't mind travelling into Venice as it was only 25-30mins on the bus and for 3 euros. Mira itself was a very nice place to be in too.

My wife and I were aware of the distance from Venice prior to booking, which was easily accessible by bus (35 minute bus ride). The hotel staff were friendly, and the room appeared to be clean.

The bathroom itself was clean, albeit the shower was pretty small. Our room had a loft that had a sitting area and an armoir, which we never used, because we spent our days in Venice. The morning breakfast was 99% bread products, with yogurt and some canned fruit.

The biggest downside to this hotel is the distance from Venice, as you can't easily hop on a bus to and from the hotel, because the buses run every 30 minutes, and it would take up a large portion of your day to travel to and from Venice. However, we quickly learned that Venice does not have the nightlife that all of our previous stops had (Florence, Rome, Mykonos, Santorini, Crete), so leaving at 10pm didn't mean you were missing much. We stayed until midnight on our first night and found the Venice was incredibly quiet at that time.

If we were to return to Venice, we would consider this hotel, but I think we would look for closer options first. That being said, we found the Mira to be quite a nice little community, and wish we had some extra time to explore that area as well, because it was quite picturesque.

Room Tip: Our room had a loft, which wasn't useful, but some rooms appeared to be larger if they were &quo...

Dear guest,

thank you for your review. We hope you spent a nice holiday at the Riviera dei Dogi Hotel.
The room you had, is a portion of the main house used as a triple or double, depending from the number of guests.
It is considered a loft because at the first floor there's a sofa-bed with an independent cabin.
The bathroom is approximately 4-5 square metres and it is considered over the standard in this kind of room.
Hoping to host you again, we send you..Kind regards.

The staff.

A really nice hotel very close to Venezia in a little town with a charming river. The hotel is in a pld house by a canal you can see from your window. The room are clean and convenient, the bathroom is a little bit small. In the morning the breakfast is a good buffet with everything (ham, cheese , fruit, cappuccino, orange juice .... You drive in Venezia in half an hour. You also may ride a bus that take you right in Venezia. It's avoid you an expansive parking over there. I will come back with my family.

We sayed at the this hotel for two nights, the room was extremely clean and sheets were changed after one day witch I did not expect to happen as we were only there for 2 nights! We had a ground floor room behind the canal not much of a view but we didn't mind, the room was quite dark but it was great for getting your head down after so much walking in the town! I'm glad we stayed out of Venice after seeing other travellers struggling with their cases over the houndreds of bridges i would defo stay at this hotel again. We did have some trouble finding the place so my advice is to plan your transfers before you leave! We got the bus from the airport to the harbour/car park cost 14euros return then took a short walk to Roma plaza and took the bus to padvo 6euro return but make sure to get of at Mira porte otherwise it's a long walk! Overall this was a lovely b&b and will return one day

Our budget prevented us to stay on the Venetian island so we chose a place on the mainland. The Riviera dei Dogi is located in the town on Mira, north-east of Venice. After a five minute walk to the bus stop, Venice is a 40 minute ride away. The staff spoke English well and gave transit directions well.

The facility is quite dated, but is kept very clean. No swipe cards, but a key attached to a heavy metal-coaster-thing opens your room. There is no WiFi in the rooms but you do get free internet access in the common areas. Continental breakfast is included. The area is quiet in the day and at night there is very little to do in the immediate area. The hotel is flanked on both sides by restaurants but they close around 10:00 p.m.

If money isn't an object, we would stay in the middle of the action on the Venetian Island but because of its good value and the mini tour of Mira that you get getting to Venice, Hotel Riviera dei Dogi is not a bad alternative.

Airport Transfer Tip:

Taxi from the Mestre Train Station was around 35 euros, a taxi from the airport would cost probably double that.

By bus from the airport: Take the bus to Piazzale Roma then from there take the Padova or Dolo Bus and tell the driver to get off the Mira-Porte stop. On the traffic light, take a left on Via Mocenigo heading south. Then make a right on Via Don Giovanni Minzoni. The hotel should be 100 meters ahead. (approximate travel time: 70 – 90 minutes)
