“excelente restaurante”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I haven't stayed at the hotel, but my parents did last year and they liked it very much.
I stayed on the hotel across the street (Best Western) because Hotel Forte del 48 was full.

I have been to their restaurant and i can say it was a great experience.
The staff was polite and helpful to explain about the food since my italian is just ok.

I believe it was one of the best food experiences i had in italy.

They also have a cafè outside during which i believe also belongs to the hotel and it's also very good.
The man at the counter was also very polite and very helpful.

Last year my parents stayed at this hotel and the purpous of their trip was to know San Donà di Piave because that's where my entire family is from in Italy before they emigrated to Brazil.

The hotel owner helped my father who doesn't speak fluent italian calling his relatives and gave them such a great support.

So i would definitely stay at this hotel on my next trip to San Donà di Piave.

I also recommend this hotel for people who want to see Venice. Makes no sense to pay lots of money to stay in the island and also if you make the choice of staying in Mestre where hotels are much cheaper, i would definitely stay in San Dona di Piave because it's even cheaper.
It's 30 min by train to Venice, and if you rent a car like i did, it's so close, specially if you come from big countries like USA, Brazil and you're used into driving long distances....i drove to the airport and it was EXTREMELY close andfast.

This summer, rather than staying in another overpriced mediocre hotel in Venice, I stayed with my family at the Hotel Forte del 48. This family-owned restaurant has a great staff that is eager to be of help with any inquires or requests guests might have.

I had reserved a family room (the price was excellent) and the hotel provided us with a very comfortable set of two rooms, each with their own bathroom. Breakfast was ample and of good quality, served with a smile. When we needed to leave for the airport early, the hotel made sure we had a full breakfast much earlier than the official starting hour - much appreciated.

While it helps to have a car when getting to the hotel, it is very easy to get to Venice from San Dona Di Piave. Simply park the car at the local train station (free and easy) and take the train to Venice - it takes a bit over half-an-hour. Trains run frequently to and from Santa Lucia station, so you can leave Venice whenever you like.

If you want to explore Venice and the region around the city, this hotel is a good choice. The price/value ratio is excellent. The hotel also has a much lauded restaurant serving seasonal regional dishes, unfortunately it was closed since we were there in August (a very bad time to visit Venice).

Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Rooms were more than what we expected from a 3-star, flat screen TV, great beds and modern décor made it look and feel like a 4-star in a large city. Bathroom was super clean and great shower (large showerhead). Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel is family run and they were always accommodating and helpful. They also run the restaurant at the hotel and we had a great meal there. Parking is no problem and the hotel is close to the Jesolo beach and a big fashion outlet mall, train station is about 5 min walk. For sure we will stay there again.

Comfortable large rooms, powerful but unobtrusive air-conditioning, wonderful breakfast buffet The best though was the motivated, friendly staff who obviously enjoy what they do. If only this was the rule for service in Europe...Hotel owners take note: this is the way it should be done.

Had to put up a family of 4 in the city of San Dona di Piave, so they would be close to my sister during their visit. From previous experience with friends that were quite happy after a night they spent in the same hotel years ago, I decided to try my luck again. Spoke with Ludovic (the owners son) in advance to organize a suitable arrangement, and they mentioned that had just restructured, and now also have family rooms with adjoining doors.
This suited the family very well, and Ludovic and his staff were extremely friendly in all occasions, even with after hours room service for one of the girls that got sick, and local suggestions. The incorporated restaurant is very good, which makes the breakfast a real treat !
When the family left , they were very happy with the rooms, and absolutely thrilled with the superb service and thanked them and me many times (which made me look good as well :)
Only 20 minutes from Jesolo and the beaches, and 10 minutes from major outlet mall (top Italian Brands) !!
A lot of great places for day trips from here.
Highly recommendable !

I was really impressed by this hotel. It's a family hotel of very high quality what is not very typical for Italy. Moreover the price is also very reasonable.
The hotel is well situated in a small town San Dona di Piave just 30 minutes of drive from Venezia and Airport Marco Polo, no heavy traffic on this road (in comparison to the road Venezia - Jesolo). Also it's just 10 minutes of drive from Designer Outlet.
Usually I hate hotel restaurants and don't go there except for included breakfast, but this one is an exception. All meals a la carte are exceptional. If you stay there, don't hesitate to go for lunch and dinner there.
Also I have to note the carpeting in the rooms (usually it's tiles instead), free parking and very convenient king size bed.

Check-in at the reception was friendly. The hotel was positioned quite centrally, but there wasn't enough parking space next to the hotel nor nearby.
The hotel looked quite old to me. The room was small, dark and simple. I didn't like the cigarette hole in the blanket. Very basic, tv and hairdryer were present, there was a desk with a chair. Quite noisy since next to the road.
Dinner at the restaurant was decent, not very cheap for the quality of the food, but the staff certainly made an effort and the food was okay. English was not easy for the staff to handle as I saw with other customers.
Sleeping quality was okay, the bed was comfortable, but I wore earplugs.
Bathroom had the basic toiletries which were fine. Everything was clean at the hotel.
Check-out was easy and quick and friendly again.
Given the limited options in San Donà this might be the best one, but next time I'll prefer to drive on to another town to go for a better hotel.
