“Good place to stay on a budget.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

!0 mins from Venice, plenty of places to eat, and hotels are good value. trains and buses run regular to venice and other towns. Easy conection to Treviso airport. Old centre and enough shopps to wander around for a couple hours.

“Quaint Town with Some High-End Stores and Charming Restaurants...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Mestre was a surprisingly charming city center which is only for pedestrians. They have some great little shops and restaurants to choose from and it appeared to be super family-friendly. I almost felt like the only tourist in the area as it seems all the locals come to eat in town on weekend summer nights. Overall a great experience and very happy I made it to this quaint town center.

“Small but nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We stayed in Mestre during our trip to Venice. It is small, but has a very lovely square. Here you'll find a lot of nice shops and restaurants. The rest of Mestre is not very interesting, lots of stores.

Cheaper accommodation near to the Venice. Take care about correct names of bus stops - it was quite problem for me to make sense of timetable...

“Not pedestrian-friendly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Industrial city, too much traffic, very little crossings. Most of the people crosses the street anywhere, but drivers didn't seem to be sympathetic. Not recommended for a family with children, but then again there isn't much to see anyway, since Venice is the main reason tourists come to Mestre.
