Having visited Venice many times over the years and having stayed in a great variety of accommodation, I was looking for a good-value comfortable base in the aqua alta season while introducing a friend to the delights of the city. People can be scathing about Mestre, but it has a great deal to offer - excellent communications, good honest restaurants serving delicious food at reasonable places, a surprising medieval core well worth a visit. And, of course, you won't get your feet wet if the tides are high. The hotel is functional, scrupulously clean and the pleasant staff are most helpful. Bedrooms are comfortable, linen can be changed every day if you wish (but of course that would be a wasteful indulgence), bathrooms are well appointed with good-quality toiletries. Breakfast is plentiful. The views are dismal, wi-fi coverage can be eccentric and sound-proofing could be improved, but it would be unreasonable to dwell on these minor points. Instead, take ear-plugs and avoid rooms ending with 11 above the 3rd floor if wi-fi is essential. We tried the three types of rooms on offer, the standard ones are perfectly adequate and it is not necessary to book a superior room, indeed the former are cosier and warmer. We were lucky enough to end up in suites and these were very good. Do take advantage of the airport transfers offered by the hotel €5 per person each way. Far better than using the crowded buses.
