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!
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
