We stayed at the Marco Polo hotel from 11-14 October and it was perfectly adequate for our needs. We chose it as it was close to the airport and to Venice and was a lower cost than a hotel inside Venice - we paid €240 for 3 nights including breakfast. It was possible to get the no. 19 from down the road straight to Piazzale Roma (the bus stop is very near - you go out of the hotel turn right and walk down via Orlando until you get to the bus stop on the same side of the road). We caught an airport buses (no 5) which stopped near the hotel (the road crossing via Orlando - via Gobbi I think) and caught this back too. The first day we asked at reception for and received a kettle for the room, along with tea, coffee and biscuits, which was all complementary. We were given a quiet room near the back and it also had a door onto the flat roof behind which was just as well as the room was very warm and the air conditioning didn't seem to work so it was useful to cook the room down. The shower was excellent and the room was very clean. Breakfast was fine - continental breakfast with ham/salami/cheese, plus rolls, toast, jam, boiled eggs (they would do you scrambled if you requested) and little custard filled doughnuts and fruit tarts. I would recommend this hotel but would also point out that the buses back from Venice get very crowded as a lot of people (workers, tourists) use them to get into and out of Venice. For that reason alone it might be worth paying for a hotel inside the city as it can be quite unpleasant returning on a packed bus when you have been walking a lot all day already. The benefits were that you got back to somewhere quiet which still had a couple of bars and restaurants locally where you could have a drink and a meal. The gentleman at reception was helpful although his English was minimal and Martina was very helpful on email before our trip but we hardly saw her when we were there as we were out most of the day.
