A modern well appointed hotel - ideal for Venice provided you are happy to take public transport. The rail station is 5 mins walk and easy to find (Venezia Mestre Ospidale), and the train times are handed out by reception staff. It is the easiest and quickest route to the Grand Canal. Buy the tickets on the train from the conductor in the first carriage. If you take the bus (24H) it takes longer. Those times too are handed to you, and if you miss the last one from Venice (around 7pm), an alternative is the no 2 to Mestre main rail station, and then the H2 which drops you outside the hotel. Bus tickets can only be bought from the Tabacchi inside the Auchan megastore (next to the Ospedale station).
We liked the hotel, and the staff were very helpful, particularly sorting out an airport transfer problem for us. The bedroom on the 8th floor had superb views to the Alps and was well appointed (but no tea/coffee making facility). The pool on the roof (9th) was deliciously cooling on hot days - small, but just what was needed.
Breakfast was ample and plenty of choice (including fresh fruit and juices) - dinner was pricey, but good. Happily stay there again, but be aware that it is on an out of town shopping area, with no posh restaurants close by.
