“Weekend in Venice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

My fiancé picked this hotel as part of a groupon deal as a surprise a few days before we travelled. He did this without reading past trip advisor reviews 1st which is what I did and straight away lowered my expectations of this so called 4 star establishment ....... It is more like a 2 star plus with a below average but edible breakfast buffet (with burnt scrambled egg).
As stated in other reviews the area isn't that great and there isn't much about also the bar down the road decided to charge us what they wanted (24€ for 2 large beers) that said the place is easy to get to and from the airport by bus which drops off and picks up virtually outside. Also there is the bus which picks and drops off at the same stops and takes about 10 mins to get into Venice itself.
As long as you are not intending on spending a great deal of time in the hotel and use it as a base for going into beautiful Venice then it's ok. However if you're looking for a real authentic hotel in Venice situated in a central location along the many canals then this is not the place for you.

Room Tip: If you are intending on spending time in your room other than to use as a base avoid room 505 as it...

Me and my girlfriend enjoyed a lot this trip to Venice, we were a bit concerned about not staying in the Island but fortunately all worked out well. This hotel has nice rooms, helpful staff, convenient location, good value for money. All you can ask for a good break, i would recommend this hotel.

My wife had booked a surprise holiday for our Anniversary, 3 days before the trip she disclosed i was all excited about the trip however got terrified looking at the reviews for this particular hotel in Venice Mestre. but kept quiet since the whole idea was so sweet. but guess what, on arrival at the hotel we were received so warmly by the staff knowing that we were on our first anniversary, we were upgraded to a nicer room and were presented with a bottle of wine too. the location was under a km away from the train station, the rooms was modern, big and clean. there was Free Wifi. Breakfast was adequate and nice. Free Parking is available though we didn't need it, which is otherwise a big plus in Mestre. The staff was very helpful at all times. All in all a nice little gem that added to a wonderful holiday in Italy and our Anniversary. We would be happy to come back again and recommend this hotel to others too.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade, if you don't ask for it you won't get it is what the receptionist said...

We (3 families) stayed at this Hotel for 2 Nights for our visit to Venice City.
Rooms are OK.
However, the Breakfast Quality was below average. Scrambled eggs was burned on both the days.
The Hotel is more of for Business Traveler.

I booked this hotel as part of a Groupon and it was a disaster from start to finish! I am convinced we were scammed by Groupon/KPX Travel. I refer to the old adage 'If it seems to good to be true, it probably is!' We arrived after travelling for a few hours only to be told that they didn't have a room for us due to a problem with the air conditioning on two floors. They told (not asked) us that we would be transferred to their sister hotel, the Albatross, which was another 20 mins away from Venice centre. While we were waiting for the taxi they called to arrive to take us, I looked on TripAdvisor and didn't fancy the Albatross much so my Husband asked to see the manager. He was very obliging (unlike the receptionist who seemed to not care less) and offered to transfer us next door to the Delfino - which actually seemed much nicer than the Ambasciatori! It ended well, but could have done without the hassle after our flights were messed up by KPX as well. All I can comment about the Ambasciatori is that is it is in a convenient location, the reception area seemed nice but I imagine the rooms are a little dated from the pictures. If they try the same to you, don't accept the inferior Albatross - ask for the Delfino!

We've spent 3 weeks traveling Europe and this is by far the absolute worst hotel! Old, dirty, lumpy bed, smelly and the worst breakfast! Thank goodness it was only 1 night. Location isn't that great and there are many more options at the same price. Stay away.

We stayed at this hotel due to our Groupon offer, which to me was a BIG scam!! the hotel we were shown on groupon was a temporary website which looked fantastic. As soon as the deal was done and we booked I went to show my friends the fantastic hotel we were staying in for a bargain price. Well to my surprise it took me to a completely different website that well to say it in the nicest way was terrible!! I will never book a trip through Groupon again because it is a big scam!! Well we had to make the most of it, the hotel looks terrible, its very old fashioned and the decor is awful. We stayed in room 505, double bed room which felt like we were in a tiny box without any windows. The bathroom was the only thing that was ok about it. The carpet is old and dirty. This by no means is a 4 star hotel, by no means at all! its a 2 star hotel, the only thing that is 4 star about it is the location. Its a 10 minute bus ride from Venice bus 4L stops across the hotel and goes every 15 minutes, perfect. Mezze itself has nothing to offer! We decided one night to go for a meal around here, that was the biggest mistake! We went to Restaurant La Carla which is just around the corner. We were served old bread and a funny looking lasagne which sent me straight to the toilet that evening. It was a sorry excuse for a restaurant and wouldn't recommend anybody to go there, they portray themselves to be authentic yet they don't service fresh food!! The hotel itself has no service, the people are unfriendly some don't even speak english! All in all a sorry excuse for a 4star hotel and i wouldn't recommend it unless your traveling overnight and want to see Venice as the location is perfect to go into Venice.
