“Simple, but quiet and clean”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

The hotel was easy to find, quiet, clean and comfortable. It was a little basic, small and a little tired/dated, but fine as a place to spend the night after 32 hours of travelling. We arrived about 4pm and basically went to bed until 0500 the next morning! Breakfast was fine, again simple but adequate.

We stayed here on 11/12 September 2012 whilst we visited Venice. For a base it was fine & no problems. The facilities are very basic but adequate.
The continental breakfast was not to our taste, lots of cakes & bread rolls. Perhaps if the owners are reading this some type of toaster would be great.
The hotel could also do with a small bar where you could enjoy a drink before going to bed as the area itself was very lacking. Transport to Venice City from the hotel is 1 euro 30 & 20 mins. on the bus which stops outside the hotel.
If you are staying here the nearest eatery is next door but not the best & very little choice. 10 mins walk towards Mestre centre & we found a lovely Pizzeria which was recommended by the hotel staff. Great value for money & the food was excellent.
Would we stay here again - Probably but 3 nights would be a maximum...

It is my opinion that this hotel should be advertised as 1 to 2 star rating. The wall paper in the room was so old it had turned a yellow colour and there was a gravy looking stain on the wall. The curtains were a very grim colour and the bathroom smelled mouldy, the shower was also very close to the toliet and the shower curtain did not appear to look clean. The bed and blankets was very out dated with a dirty appearance. I would advise you to look for some thing of better quality even if it means paying more money for another hotel. My daughter and I booked in to the hotel but felt so depressed by the poor looking quality that we checked out a few hours after booking in and found a better hotel, it was worth losing our money to find some thing better.

My husband and I were offered this hotel as part of a cruise deal. I looked at the reviews and was worried as they weren't that good. However, our room, although quite basic, was clean and the bed was comfortable. We had an absolutely huge terrace leading from the French windows. As one other 'reviewer' said, there is a Lidls just down the road so we stocked up on goodies for the evening. My husband didn't think much of the breakfast but, as I only have muesli, I thought it was ok. The receptionist couldn't have been more helpful, she gave us a map (there is a batch of them on reception) and, as well as giving us clear directions, she also marked all the information on the map for us. I would definitely stay here again, in the same room preferably, as it is easy to get into Venice and back without being in the heart of the city.

My husband, my 6yrs old daughter and I spent 3 wonderful nights in Venice and then 2 nights in beautiful Paduva. We thought to spend our last two days in Mestre which it was cheaper and also to be near Treviso airport. Big mistake. Mestre is a terrible town to start with and to get to Treviso we had to go to the station anyway. Ariston Hotel looks ok from outside but NO. Everything is so old and in a bad condition. The feeling was even worse when we went to our room. Again, old furniture and dirty look fabrics. We wanted to go to another hotel immediately! Instead we decided to leave the hotel for the daytime and return in the evening, just to sleep. We returned to Venice for daytime and went back to Ariston in the evening. We thought to have a drink outside before we go to sleep. The hotel does not have a bar, only a small fridge where they keep a few drinks. so we bought our beers and sat outside. Big mistake again. There are so many mosquitoes..I still have the big bites. The air-conditioning is central and you cannot regulate it from the room. It was very cold in the room, I couldn' t sleep at night. When I asked, they told me that it should be off by 2 after midnight but it was the same on the second night too. The only good thing i have to say about this hotel is that the receptionists were very helpful and the breakfast wasn't bad. Overall..Don't Bother!! Spend a couple of hundred euro more and stay in Venice.

Hotel looks nice from the outside, but inside it looks like it came from the 70's, the breakfasts were modest and consistent, in my room was an unpleasant odor, the hotel need some more for fewer customers, while we lived there, tour the school which is pretty loud behaved, all you did was heard in the room, generally the hotel for short stays

Room Tip: virtually all the rooms facing the street
