If you want the most convenient hotel to stay at before or after you cruise, or just a hotel that offers to cheapest and shortest commute to and from Marco-Polo Airport to Venice, the Arlecchino is your place. All buses ride up to Piazzale Roma only and the Arlecchino can be seen from the bus station, just a short walk over the bridge. It is only 3 EUR one way per person via ATVO, the bus that brings you and your luggage to Venice from the airport. The Vaporetto (public boat) stop is right there as well if you want to access all major points in Venice or you can just walk at your leisure all the way to Piazza San Marco or Academia.
Our room was better than expected with a pleasant decor and spacious enough for a building in Venice. It even has a lift, though small it saves you the trip all the way up with your luggage. The staff will even offer to take your bags upstairs for you.
One thing that I liked the most about this small hotel was the staff and the convenience of its location. My husband forgot a few items in the room we stayed at on the night before our cruise and we were able to recover this shortly before taking our bus to the airport after arriving from our cruise. The port where the cruise boat docked was just a 10 - 15 min walk or if your cruise offers it, a shuttle ride to Piazzale Roma brings you right back to the hotel in no time.
The breakfast was better than expected (again, for a small 3 star hotel) it had quality rather than quantity. Plenty of cold cuts, pastries, bread, cereals offered in a bright pleasant room. Two things though that you might consider. There is no shower curtain in the bathroom, so you might need to be careful if you are the one to splash around and if you choose a canal view, you have to know that the motor boats will probably wake you up in the morning, but if you are to get up to see Venice anyways, it might just suit your needs.
Great value overall, my husband and I are just so happy we stayed here before our cruise because it was very convenient and the staff was great.
