“Lovely stay. Would recommend the Bologna”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Spent three nights here while visiting Venice. Ideal location next to railway station. 1 stop from the hustle and bustle of Venice. Lovely rooms, very clean. Breakfast was ok. Reception staff were very efficient if a little dour. However this was more than made up for by Morris the barman who looked after us superbly. Grazie Mille. We'll be back.

The Hotel Bologna is in mestre right in front of the train station, which is perfect. Mestre is not a touristic city, but it serves good to the travelers that dont want to pay the ridiculous prices in Venice.

It was my second time in the hotel, great attention, excellent confort sleeping quality. The price includes buffet breakfast. It was my third hotel in this trip, and it felt great to have finally a great breakfast included. The service is very good. In the lobby they have a nice area to sit and relax with a tv screen with almost unlimited channels.

Do not recommend to walk from the train station to the center through the street "via Piave" late at night... the area is kind of dark and a local friend told me it is not the safest at late hours.

The bus stop to go to venice is at 20 meters, another advantage to this great hotel!

We stayed in Bologna Hotel and thought it was the best hotel selection we made in our entire Italy trip (we went to Rome and Florence as well). The hotel's right across from the train station so if you've got big luggage, it's great to drop off your luggage then venture off to Venice. I saw a lot of families with kids or several large luggages staying at hotels in Venice and they struggled. Reasons being are:
- It is not easy to find your way around Venice
- There are many small bridges and they've got steps

Pros to staying at Bologna:
- Don't have to carry the luggage to and from the train station
- Very nice and clean
- Much cheaper than staying at the heart of Venice (paid $160 / night)
- Staff is nice

The only con I have is that the WIFI is weak in our room.

Fabulous location being across the street from Mestre train station and about15 minutes into centre of Venice. Clean modern hotel and rooms have all you could ask for.
Reception staff all very friendly and helpful. Could buy train tickets etc and gave great advice. All spoke various languages including English.
Continental breakfast was complimentary and enjoyable buffet . Hotel had restaurant that had very good set dinner menu for €17 and we used each night. Other restaurants in area.
Enjoyable stay and would use again.

We stayed here for three nights while visiting Venice. Location cant be better since it is just across the train station (such a great thing that you won't be able to get lost!)
Very close and easy to go Venice where hotels are often time pricer and smaller (and old).
The room has very good size, and it is very clean. Breakfast is considered one of the best (three stars) from all other hotels i stay traveling around Italy.
Front desk stuff are very informative and friendly.
I will stay here again for future Venice visiting!

If you are going to Venice, This is the best location you could ever ask for. The Train station is across the street, the airport bus shuttle was around the corner, Good restaurant in the hotel and around. Everything place is within a reach. The reception is so helpful and nice. you could buy your train ticket in the hotel or if you are staying couple of days, you should check on the day pass, or even the 24 or 36 hrs pass for the boat, so you could go back and forth. The r ooms are clean and roomy, very modern, the bathroom are good size except for the shower area is very small. Since its near the train station and street, it could get a little bit noisy but you could shut your curtains and it would be ok. But I rather have the location. Overall it is a very comfortable stay.

We had a nice sized room with large windows at the front of the hotel. Large bathroom had a bath with a hand shower and also a tiny walk in shower. A restaurant and a bar to eat in. Very handy for trains and buses to Venice and elsewhere.
