Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 13, 2013

This hotel is located 25-30 minutes by walk from Mestre train station. It is a simple hotel with friendly staff who speak very little English but they try to help as much as they can. The hotel is about 2 minutes by walk from the bus stop to Venice (it takes about 20 mins - bus nr. 6/) The staff at reception sold us return bus tickets (€2.60 return per person) to Venice so we did not have to worry about this at all. We just activated them on the bus. There was a free WIFI, however the connection was poor.

The room itself was spacious, with desk, the en-suite bathroom was a bit small (free toiletries) and it would need some renovation but it is fine for a short stay. There was only a ceiling fan working that was quite loud especially at night. A nice touch was also a small bag with cookies to welcome you.

I would recommend this place but bare in mind that this is 2.5-3 star accommodation, no luxury at all. It is really simple. Also if you are considering staying in a hotel in Venice be ready for pulling/carrying your suitcases up and down the stairs and bridges like we saw many tourists did. Also Venice itself is like a maze. You need a map if you do not know the area. I thought we could figure out without one but we ended up buying one after about an hour just walking around not knowing where we were.

Good little hotel. 20mins by bus to cental venice (bus 6/ ) every 20mins. Last bus from venice to hotel (stop beccaria) 920pm. The local restuarants are good and cheap, far better than venice food. Best to get the bus from airport to mestre train station then taxi for 15 euros. All in 21euros. Better than paying 40euros. Taxis expensive, food in venice expensive and poor in quality. Top tip buy a transport pass, bus travel and water buses free to use with the time on the pass.
