My husband and I enjoyed our stay in Mestre (the perfect location for a visit to Venice) The island of Venice was only a 15 minute ride away from Villa Crispi and quite easy to get to by transit. The rooms were very much like a hotel. Not a lot of personal charm like the other b&b's we had stayed in however for the price we paid it really surpassed our expectations. Everything was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was lovely and was served to us on their private patio (set up very restaurant styled) It was nice being served restaurant style... without having to pay restaurant prices. There were two ladies who worked the front desk. One spoke no English but was polite. The other young lady spoke fantastic English and was extremely helpful in guiding us on transportation and sites to see. We really appreciated her hospitality.
Overall Villa Crispi was a great choice. The Mestre area has a great vibe to it as well. We did not even begin to discover Mestre until our last evening there and were sad we didn't explore it a little more as it really had a charm to it as well as great restaurants (recommended by the hosts at Villa Crispi) and a vibrant community.More
