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.
