hotel with parking outside of venice


We (2 adults + 2 kids aged 10 and 8) are planning to stay on the outskirts of Venice for a couple of nights in August. We will have a hire car so looking for a hotel that provides free car parking but in a convenient location to catch bus or train into Venice.

What areas should I be looking at and anyone have any recommendations?

You could check hotels in Mestre, just 10 mins by train (or tram, or bus) across the causeway (https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotels-g194822-z…), or take the car-ferry across to Venice Lido and stay there, e.g. https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g…

Or look in Lido di Jesolo: from Punta Sabbioni, you can take the big boat (motonave, a bigger version of a vaporetto) that goes to Venice Lido and then San Marco.

Any map of the area will show you where you might want to be looking. See also europeforvisitors.com/venice/articles/hotels…

Below are three excellent, inexpensive hotels near or opposite the train station in Mestre that come with a bountiful free buffet breakfast.There is parking right near these hotels for a small fee.Have a look at the recent highly positive TripAdvisor reviews by people who actually stayed at these hotels.

The Best Western Hotel Bologna, directly in front of the Mestre railway station.


The Hotel Plaza is situated in front of the Mestre railway station.


The Hotel Tritone, near the Mestre railway station.


There are frequent trains and buses from Mestre to Venice that take around fifteen minutes to get to Piazzale Roma, the gateway to Venice—which is a little over two miles from Mestre.


You very often get a much better hotel room (larger and more modern) for your money in Mestre. Plus, you won’t have to carry heavy luggage aboard crowded vaporetti, across stepped bridges, and up narrow staircases to get to your hotel room—a big advantage for some seniors and those with disabilities, particularly during periods of heavy flooding.
