We took a cab from the Venice airport to the hotel, and with the directions in the website, there was no problem in locating. I had informed the hotel of my arrival time, and the checkin was smooth. I was surprised to see that the room in this hotel was quite spacious, very clean, and with an equally good bathroom. The bed was huge, and comfortable, and the cupboard was spacious enough to keep all of our things. Venice was quite hot, and the airconditioning in the room definitely helped. The hotel is located in a pleasant and cool place with a lot of trees. There is a church right behind the hotel (the bells might disturb you sometimes).
The bus stop to Venice is just outside the hotel gate. It takes around 10 minutes to get to Piazzale Roma. We purchased a 'Rolling Venice' card which gave us good discounts on the travel fares. The bus to the airport also comes to the same stop, so there should be no problems in mobility.
The hotel provides a decent breakfast with a handful of items, fresh fruits and coffee. The restaurant-keeper was friendly and gave us the right directions to Venice and the airport. The free wifi in the room worked pretty well. The receptionist was friendly, and even helped us print some of our tickets for our onward journeys.
On the downside, there are not much things to do around the hotel in Mestre - not even a restaurant around. You will have to walk a good distance to get to a restaurant or any shop. But, since we spent most of our time in Venice, this did not bother us much.
Overall, this hotel gives good value for money, and promises a pleasant stay on the mainland. I would definitely recommend this hotel on a visit to Venice.
