My husband booked our stay at this hotel for a long weekend break having read that it's a convenient distance from the airport and Venice and there's a regular shuttle service.
He made a great choice!
This hotel is modern, clean, we had absolutely no issues during our stay and I can only point out the positives.
Our trip was booked as a package to include flights from UK and, considering this, this hotel was pretty cheap for all it has to offer!
There're regular (approx once every hour) shuttle services between venice, hotel and the airport, which costs €5 per person per way but having taken a taxi from the airport and watched the fare fly up, you're guaranteed a very good deal!
As general rule shuttles were fairly on time but I'd be careful making any time-sensitive plans at the other end - sometime people are late for the shuttle and while they don't wait indefinitely, slight delays are a possibility.
We had breakfast included in our stay, it's offered from 5-10am, which makes me disagree with one of the previous reviewers about it being too early, but make up your own mind about that :)
Food choices were diverse - scrambled, hard boiled eggs, sausage, variety of cereal, fruit, cold meats, cheeses...
We had one meal at the hotel - got peckish one night having had an early dinner in Venice - and it was just what we expected, no fuss, no embellishment but tasty and pretty cheap :)
As we got here quite late on the first day, we headed across the road for a meal to Pizzeria that night - if you find yourself in a similar situation, make sure you go there! Food was really tasty, service - lovely and by the time the crowds started pouring in 8+pm, atmosphere was pretty great too!
Our room was standard and we found it very spacious, I noticed some of the rooms have balconies but they might be on a different rate, or just depending on how lucky you are when rooms are assigned.
There's a 'wellness suite' up on the top floor with a small gym with panoramic views of the surrounding area, sauna and an outdoors area.
Now for probably what's potentially the biggest sticking point for booking this hotel - distance from Venice. It was genuinely not a problem for us, the shuttle mentioned previously is a comfortable, modern mini bus, it whisks you over the bridge in something close to 15 minutes. We actually came to enjoy that part of our routine as it forces you to wander through some areas of the city you may've not gone to otherwise.
Overall, we had a great stay, the hotel was a pleasant surprise and I would absolutely recommend it!
