“The best choice!!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

Don't let you fool yourself by this 2 star hotel. It is very nice and clean. The staff is friendly and helpfull.
The breakfast was also a good surprise! It consists in cornetti, cappucino, caffe latte, caffe, orange juice ,fresh bread ,toasts, multiple jams ,butter ,cheese... But don't expect the tipical continental breakfast with eggs, ham, yogurt, fruit and so on.
The rooms are big and the bed was confortable. Small but practical shower ,with very good water temperature and pressure. Free wifi. Tv and heating in each room.
1,40 € for turist tax per person per day (in Venezia historical center is more expensive).

In the end this was the best option for our 3 nights in Venice because it's 5 min walking from train station and it seemed to us also a very safe area. There are trains going to venezia santa lucia (to historical city center) every 10 min and it takes around 10 minutes. One way ticket costs 1,25 € (even though we weren't checked even once).

You should choose this hotel specially if you have a lot of luggage or simply if you don't want to risk being lost in the small streets of venezia historical center looking for your hotel/ b&b/ hostel. I saw many tourists going up and down stairs, lost, looking for their hotel... which was even worse during the night, when basically there's no one on the streets to help u!

Last advices...
If you are less than 25 (?) u can buy 72h ticket that worths for bus and boats (not train) for 22 or 24 € (can't remember exactly). Buses and boats are also running during late hours of the night and there are connections with Mestre. That is usefull if you are lazy to walk, if you want to travel by boat and visit the other islands (burano, lido, ...) or simply if you want to move faster. Single tickets are very expensive... We didn't buy this because we didn't have so much time to visit the islands and for me the best was 'getting lost' and discovering the small and mysterious streets of Venice :D

For souvenirs... there was one store near Alfredo's fresh pasta (justified #1 trip advisor restaurant in Venice - worth a visit!) with the cheapest silver and murano glass earings, watches, bracelets, necklesses, etc... Many stores are constantly with 50 % discount and prices change a lot, so go arround a bit before you make your choice :D

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel with links into Venice without having to pay Venetian prices.
Hotel Montepiana provided that for us. A mere 3or 4 minutes walk into Venice Mestre station the hotel offers clean and comfortable rooms with an average but plentiful breakfast and free parking.
Ideal for a stress free visit to Venice.
My advice to anyone would be not to stay in Venice itself as I saw heaps of stressed looking people dragging their suitcases around the city trying to get to or from their hotels. The only other way to get your luggage to your hotel is water and this can be expensive..

This is a basic hotel but the rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast consists of croissants, bread rolls and toast with coffee/tea/chocolate and juice. The hotel is a five minute walk to Mestre train station (the journey to Venice takes slightly longer than 10mins and costs €1.20 one way). The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. We found Montepiana to be a great alternative to staying in Venice itself.

Small hotel with a friendly staff. The breakfast was merely coffee and 2 breads but it was compensated by the service to the tables. This hotel is in a walking distance to the train station if you use this cheaper hotel to visit Venice

Staying in Mestre is an excellent choice to visit Venice. The train is very fast (7 - 8 minutes) and low cost. This hotel is very close to the train and bus station. Good value for money, confortable rooms and reasonable breakfast.

Stayed her for 1 night before catching a flight from Marco Polo to Germany. Very good hotel for doing such a thing. 5 minute walk from Mestre station. Only 10 minutes on the train from there to Venice Island. I've stayed on Venice island before for 180 Euros or in Mestre for 75 Euros. I know where I'll be staying again. Hotel was quite good. People who checked us in and out spoke adequate English. It's like most Italian hotels where you have to leave the key with the hotel when you go out, but this wasn't a problem. Went to check out at 5.45am to leave for the airport and there wasn't anyone at reception, despite being told it was staffed 24 hours. A man did come out after pressing the doorbell outside, albeit in his underwear. Ah, the joys of Italian. Room was clean, bed comfortable enough. Had a TV, but only with Italian station. Very small bathroom, but adequate too. If you need somewhere to stay near Mestre for an onward journey or don't want to pay the expensive Venice island hotel rates, then I can definitely recommend this hotel.

Neighborhood is silent and safe, close to the railway station.
