From previous reviews (thank you fellow tripadvisor folks), we stayed here to catch a Costa cruise the next day & then came back for 2 nights after the cruise to see Venice. Our price direct with the hotel was 70 euros which is very reasonable near Venice. We talked to other people on our cruise that stayed in Venice & they paid a lot more for bad rooms with a shared bathroom! The rooms are small but clean and the bathroom is fine too. The shower is small. If you're thin, you'll fit through the opening. If you're a little overweight like me, you can squeeze through. If you're really big,,, forget it! On our first night the guy at reception recommended the Pietra Restaurant a couple blocks down the street. It was great! We both had a pizza & drink each for 26 euros! The pizza was very good & we were the only tourists as this is where the locals eat. Don't look for a romantic setting. The lighting is industrial cafeteria bright. If you want a good dinner at a low price, this is the place. We were disappointed the restaurant was closed on our return from the cruise for a major holiday so we ate in Mestre. Sorry, I can't recommend any place there. All in all, if you don't want to pay a lot of money for a hotel in Venice, I do recommend this place. I was disappointed that the hotel shuttle to the airport wasn't available on the Monday we left. The hotel arranged transport for us & the guy charged
30 euros which was a rip-off. Besides not providing the airport shuttle, I would recommend this hotel & the breakfast was fine too. If they tell you their shuttle driver is sick, get your own cab & you'll probably save at least 10 euros. Yes, the 13 bus is right by the hotel & is a quick drive into Venice. As for Venice - definately one place for the bucket list! A totally unique place. There really is no place else like it. Now I know why everybody goes there. Just be careful at night. It's easy to get lost & hard to find your way back to the bus station before the last one leaves at 1:00 am!
