“Good Location for Venice Visits, Wifi & Parking inclusive”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Very friendly employees, fluent english speakers (not the norm in Italy). Bus to central Piazzale Roma with all the Vaporetti-Lines about 200m from the hotel. Free parking. Free Wifi. Breakfast typical for Italy, so don't expect too much (no eggs, e.g.).

If you decide to stay in Mestre to avoid high hotel costs in venice consider this: the trip back to the hotel at night can take up to 2 hours, although it is only about 4 stations from the Piazzale Roma away. Low frequency of the Vaporetti at night, too many tourists on late return trips to Mestre (although the boats are being stuffed like the Tokio subway sometimes customers will not be able to go on board) and low frequency of the bus line #7 to the hotel at night just take their toll.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms go to the front of the house facing the street with buses. Keeping the windows shu...

I read some negative reviews about this hotel, but during our stay in Mestre (for a Venice trip), we did not experience most of the negative things that were said on this site.

The rooms were relatively new and clean, except in our case the shower which really needed to be renewed. The other downside was that it was difficult to understand where the parking of the hotel actually was, because the reception had poor English skills—but to be fair, of the four hotels we stayed in in Italy (including a posh one), and a couple dozen restaurants and diners we ate in, we didn't meet any staff who spoke English even on an acceptable level.

The location of the hotel is as good as it will get in Mestre—it's right next to bus #7 which takes you to Venice fairly quickly, and it's also not far from the Mestre train station. Staff was very friendly, and breakfast was excellent. WiFi and parking are free. The price of the rooms is relatively low, and definitely much cheaper than a similar hotel in Venice.

stayed in this hotel for the first time in 2011, came back in 2013. it is a simple hotel, did get a feeling it needs to be a bit renovated (some leackage on the floors).

large bed, excellent matress and pillow. large room and bathrom, tub lacks curtain. a bit odd odour in the bathroom.

it has free wifi in rooms, more than one device can use the same code, works well (that obviously changed considering other reviews). parking is free and bus to venice is couple a feet away. considering pricing in the area, it is good value for money.

breakfast is basic, but enough to get you started.

found the staff extremelly helpful - we had a car problem, they arranged for us un urgent car check.

I don't know why this Hotel Adria got good reviews and how it is classified as 3 stars. I stayed there two nights ago and it was simply terrible:

Cleanliness
The bathroom looked dirty overall, but in the shower it mostly was limescale deposits. On the toilet however there still were long hairs. The room was poorly clean.
Duvets were covered with sheets only from one side. Disgusting!

Location
The Hotel is only 4 stops away from the bus station in Venice. It's a 5-10 mins walk to the to the bus stop. The hotel is directly located on a main road.

Amenities
Which amenities?

Service quality
Worst ever. They advertise to have free wi-fi. We were a group of 5 people, and paid for 5 people. At the front desk you have to ask to get a card with a code. The guy there (maybe the owner, that's at least how he acted,) got totally upset when we dared to ask for a code for each of us. He said we would have to share codes which meant that some couldn't use the internet at the same time. Though I only understand little Italian I got that he complaint to his friends about how impudent we were to ask for 5 codes. This is how they treat guests.

Food
Breakfast is included, so we thought we'd give it a try. Bad idea. Few choices and bad food quality. There were some nice Pasticcerias across the street. We should have tried those.

I booked the hotel because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. However, I was deeply disappointed by the hotel: The hallway was old with its carpet torn. The room was small and simple. The last renovation was probably 20 years ago. The washroom was even worse: No holder for the toiletpaper and mold in every corner.

For the advertised free WiFi-Access you need to get a code from the reception - for every device! If you travel with multiple people and/or multiple devices be prepared to get yelled by the recepionist for asking for multiple codes.

The breakfast was also very simple (croissant, rolls, jam, coffee, orange juice). It's better to visit a local bakery or cafe!

The only good thing about the hotel is the bus connection to Venice. But there are probably a lot other hotels which provide a much better service and are much cleaner.

Very friendly staff! Good price for a location very near to Venice. Bus stop is just after the corner. Hotel is not located in a nice place, but the main purpose is to visit Venice, without paying the price of Venice hotels. Clean and OK for the price.
