We stayed in this hotel for 1 night, as we will be joining a tour the following day which booked us on a different hotel. I made a reservation thru booking.com, because of the good reviews here on tripadvisor. Location - the hotel is just 10 mins away from Venice by bus (no 12).. You just have to walk for... More

Looking for a reasonably priced alternative to staying in Venice, we looked at several hotels and many reviews before choosing San Carlo, Mestre. We were not disappointed! The #15 bus from the airport 15Euro return (25 mins journey), stops 50 metres from hotel. All hotel reception staff seemed to speak reasonable English and were very helpful in providing maps/directions etc.... More

The breakfast is better then usually in Italy, the room was clean, but very old furnished, not like in the pictures. The bathroom is small,... More

The hotel is an average one, nothing special. The service, the rooms, the cleanliness are OK, but it is a little bit overpriced compared to other hotels we visited in Italy with the same ranking (and better service). Of course this is not really surprising, since Mestre is the "sleeping area" for the visitors of Venice, one of the most... More

We spent one night at hotel San Carlo. Our room was very clean and quiet and also had aircon. You're a 5 minute walk away from her bus stop to get into Venice and you can buy a transport pass from the hotel which is ver good value. All in all a pleasant stay with very friendly staff.

We stayed 2 nights at this wonderful hotel. Great value, very clean and fantastic friendly staff. The breakfast was delicious and morning coffee made by Francesco was awesome. Location is great, short bus ride to Venice. Ask for Guido for any taxi service.....he is a dependable friendly fellow!

At arrival we where greeted by a lovely staff member named Francesco which made our stay memorable. The Hotel's location is great, 5 minutes away from a bus stop that goes straight to Venice. Rooms are clean although we had found a bit of blood on the bed sheets. Also they have parking which was a big plus since we... More
