Reviewed July 16, 2012

Staying here is like staying at your Mum's place. Lorenza, the hostess, is welcoming and friendly, and makes your coffee in the morning. She also locks the front door early in the evening, which you access by key. The rooms are small, and we could hear next door moving in the bed,and walking around because of creaky floorboards.
The hotel is easy to find. The number 15 bus from the airport drops you off at Venezia Mestre train station, and you walk to the other side via the underpass, then it's a left, and a right, and you are there.
To get to Venice, across from the hotel is a bus stop, we jumped on the number 6 bus. Coming back we used the number 3 that drops you off at Venezia Mestre.

The location, accommodation and service and was excellent. The lovely hostess Lorenza was very attentive to our needs and gave lots of great advice on where to visit and best ways to travel (she took all the stress out of deciding where and what to do which was great). There is a great family run pizza restaurant a few minutes walk away, the pizza and pasta here was really good (if not the best during our 6 days in Italy). Parking for travellers with a car is a big plus, also there is a very good laundromat only a few minutes walk away which was very handy. Breakfast was great and being the driver of our group I really appreciated the coffee refills.
I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

We stayed at Casa Villa Gardenia for 5 nights in late April and were truly spoilt by our very welcoming hosts. The room and breakfast were great and their local knowledge / tips helped us explore the back streets of Venice. The hotel is ideally located if you are travelling with a hire car - you can leave it in their secure car park and catch a local train or bus and be in the centre of Venice within 10-15 minutes without any hassles. Overall - a great experience and good value.

Stayed at Casa Villa Gardenia for one night. Arrived there mid-afternoon and headed into Venice for the evening. Also went in the next morning returning in the afternoon to Casa Villa Gardenia to retrieve our luggage. The rooms were very nice, the hostess very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was typical European - meats, cheeses, rolls, pastries, fruit, etc. She was very attentive and made sure everyone had what they needed. The rooms were clean and spacious. The location was great. Two blocks from the train station - a very easy walk with luggage. The regional trains were one stop to Venice - took no more than 10 minutes. Buses were also an option. I would absolutely stay there again. Venice is not an easy place to get around with luggage and by staying in Mestre/Marghera we avoided that.

I stayed here with my Dad in April, really liked this place. The owner was so welcoming she treated everyone like family and was just a delight. Breakfast was great especially the fresh bread. Literally about 100m to the train station, takes about 10min on train to get to Venice, really close! Coming back on the train from Venice get off at MESTRE station - this information was not clear when we were told so we ended up spening over an hour and a half catching trains back and forth. Definately would stay here again. Supermarket is about a 10 to 15 min walk (depending on how fast you walk of course, i got there in 5).

The only negative, if anything, was that our room was a double converted into a twin, with some furnature shifting we made a fair amount of room, but as a double this room would have been a bit cramped.

Villa Gardenia is strategically located only 150 metres from the Maghera railway station and even closer to a bus stop. it means that you can be at the Venice train station in less than 15 minutes, while having the comfort of a calm sleep! The owners are most friendly, and the lady gave us an excellent set of instructions what to do in Venice and how to do it, including money saving tips. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is fine, and there is free wireless high speed internet in all rooms. Parking in the Villa's yard is also free. Overall, this is an excellent and highly recommended solution for everybody visiting Venice, especially for people travelling by car with their families.
OK, if we are picky we can also say that pillows are a bit high (you can get others if you ask for them). There is some noise coming on one side of the house from the adjacent street but it is nothing that can stop you from having a good night sleep. The room walls are also a bit thin and sometimes you can hear what is going on outside. Again, these are small niggles and should not stop you from booking at Villa Gardenia.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the house.
