I hope this review will help future visitors to this hotel, it is impartial, subjective, and what I believe to be a true representation of my experience here. The hotel is about a 15 minute ride to the Piazza Roma in Venice which can be accessed by a number 2 bus just around the corner. All busses are packed and you usually have to stand, but thats ok, you are not alone! The hotel is near a main Plaza if you exit the main doors, turn left and just keep walking. One evening we found the Garabaldi Inn or some similar named eatery there and the meal we had for 9 euros was excellent! Back to the hotel, the rooms are basic, my disappointment with the room was that it was on the main road at the front of the hotel and there is a bar opposite. We were there on a Friday evening and they really enjoy themselves at the bar, and continued to do so until 3.30am in the morning! If staying at the hotel I would advise you ask for a back room away from the main road. Breakfast is ok, no full english available, but perfectly adequate and the staff are very friendly. There is no pressure and you can pretty much do as you please. TV in your room is in Italian, no English channels. In our room shutters completely obliterated the windows and we couldn't open them, but as we were there only 2 nights it didn't seem worth asking them to do anything about it. By the way, to reach this hotel from Marco Polo Airport we had to catch a bus to Mestre railway station and then another no. 2 to the hotel. It pays to buy an AVTO ticket for however long you are in Venice to access unlimited travel on both the busses and vaporatto's, we bought a 36 hr ticket which was 25 Euro's per person and good value for money. This hotel is good as a short-stay no frills accommodation, but not for a longer holiday in my view, horses for courses. I hope this review helps.
