“only if you dont need air conditioning”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

We stayed 4 days in sept. room was clean. we confirmed our room 3 seperate times direct with the hotel. We requested a smoking room executive suite. We were given ash trays to smoke in the non smoking room since they messed up the room conmfirmation. The AC was not suffiecent to cool the room and we had to open the windows to get relief from the heat. The water pressure was ok and the room was clean. They advertised in room coffee - which we did not get and was told that was an error. It is close to Venice and a good value for the area. Would recommend using the Starhotel chain and staying only 3 nights in Venice if your an american that enjoys comfort and air conditioning, the extra money is well worth being able to sleep comfortably after touring all day in the heat. I would rate this as only 2 1/2 stars.

dear Jon S,
thank you, thank you for your review. we have recently converted all our rooms into non-smoking, that is probably why you did not find any ash tray when you got into your room. I'm very sorry about air conditioning. and also about coffee maker, that we provide only in our Club rooms. I'll check personally our room descriptions and make sure these are all correct and clear. thank you again for writing.

We stayed here while in Italy to visit Venice. It was right across the street from the train station and couldn't have been a better location. It cost us $1 Euro and took 10 minutes to take the train to Venice and we saved alot of money by staying here rather than right in Venice. (Alot easier also, as you don't have to drag your luggage onto water taxi's etc...) Great breakfast included and the rooms are clean and big! Staff was very polite and helpful. Not too many restaurants in the area, but the one at the hotel is very good!

Located just opposite the train station which is one stop from Venice. Good value, and the trian to Venice is a treat in itself. Modern clean hotel, not spectacular but very comfortable.

The best thing about this hotel is its location right across the street from Mestre train station, where you can take a train to Venice and get there in 10 minutes’ time for a cost of EUR 1 per ticket (the trains leave every 5 or 10 minutes).

Breakfast was OK – nothing out of the ordinary but good enough to start a day. There is a very nice little restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel building and plenty of different places to eat in the area, and a big supermarket about 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: book an upgraded room on the top floor

The room was pleasant and clean. The breakfast was varied and rich, in a large restaurant room. The lobby is imposing, on 2 levels, with 2 computers with free internet access and a printer. Location is perfect for Mestre: the bus station for Venice is cross the street and will take you to the entrance of Venice in less than 15 minutes.
Moreover, the railway station is only 50 meters away; however, the noise from the trains does not disturb the guest’s sleep.

If for any reason you can’t stay in Venice in an impeccable hotel, this hotel is perfect as a 4 star residence.

Spent four days July 2011. Not the same atmosphere as bring in Venice but a short bus or train ride in. Hotel directly across from both. Hotel and rooms, large and clean. Quite and super breakfast. Resturant attached, several shops close by to browse as well as a large supermarket couple of blocks away. Visited with daughters 11 and13 and we had a fantastic time. Can't compare prices as we booked through air/hotel however must be cheaper than Venice I imagine.
Huge mezzanine level, free internet and very easy bus ride from airport and walk across the street to the train station. Would definatly return to this hotel and location.

Room Tip: We had a corner room facing the back, was great

This hotel is modern and clean. My room was a little smaller than some of the other hotels we stayed in across Europe but it was fine for the two of us and was clean and well maintained. The breakfast was average - juice, tea, coffee, toast, runny scrambled eggs and some fruits and yoghurts with some hams and salami and cheeses. The best part about this hotel is that it is literally right across the road from the train station. The trains run very frequently into Venice and they are almost always air-conditioned!! I avoided the buses like the plague! They are hot and very crowded and have been known to break down. The train takes you right to the vaporetto (ferry) and from there you can go anywhere in Venice. The hotel has a pretty good restaurant and bar so you can have a drink and dinner after a long day out sightseeing- (they once fed us at about 10.30pm at night in the restaurant!)
