“really hard to find!”
Reviewed October 10, 2008

We were 2 hours early and were lucky the housekeeper let us in. However, she called the innkeeper who said to hold our passports and he would meet us later. Reluctant to leave those behind, esp since we could not communicate AT ALL with the Italian hskper, I spoke to the innkeeper on the phone and said we would wait for him. He returned in the promised 30 minutes and all was squared away.

This place was INCREDIBLY hard to find! We were lugging our suitcases in the streets for quite some time. Frustrated, I waited while my husband went on a search. The other couple staying at the B&B said the same thing at breakfast. It is true the bus stop is close by. The B&B website states the wrong bus to take from Venice!!! The Venice driver tried to tell us that, but we figured how could the website be wrong? If you are coming from Venice, ask the bus driver for the best route to the piazza. Maybe they'll fix the website.

As for the room, ours was large. Very basic. I was chilly as there was only one sheet and a bedspread. I asked for a blanket for the second night. Wifi was not working. There is a computer to use in the dining area. Breakfast, fair at best. I suggest you go out to the street for a great coffee.

The B&B is above a restaurant/bar. It was incredibly noisy late into the night on the weekend when we stayed. Earplugs did not help. Thankfully, we were both exhausted from sightseeing so we eventually fell sound asleep.

I'd rate this 5/10. It was clean, but spartan for the price. Venice is expensive however and this probably was a fair deal for the area.

We thank you for your review. I have just something to make clear:

In our website we don't say which bus to take from Venice, we say how to reach us from Mestre railstation.

We couldn't do anything if the restaurant outside was noisy (they never caused problems before), but I think that our location, in a pedestrian area, is much better than having a room with a view to a traffic jam.

The fact that it was cold during the night wasn't caused by us. Normally it is much warmer in that season, and for Italian law heating can be switched on only from 15th October.

For all the rest we will make treasure of your experience to give the best service to our future guests.

We arrived to metre by train at 3pm and had no problem finding the place, it is located neer a shoping center and the bus station is also neer by.
The room is very comftable, with air conditioning and a large bed.
The bathroom is huge and it has a bath tub.
The breakfast was the best breakfast we had in our entire trip to Italy and the B&B staff spoke English very well.
The bus ride to venice is about 15 minutes and the bus stop is located 2 minutes walk.

we are a young couple, absolutely loved the place, very good location (mestre shopping and historic centre), the bus to Venice is 2 minutes walk from the hotel, very friendly and attentive staff, huge quiet air conditioned room, with huge private bathroom. the room was cleaned every day. a nice surprise was a bowl of fresh fruit in the lobby every day. the breakfest is a little plain but overall the experience is great.
a free parking is availalible near by (ask the staff). paid parking is 1 minute away from the hotel.
We definetly recommend the place to anyone visiting venice.

I spent a weekend at La Residenza, and it was wonderful. The room was very clean and compfortable. Location is perfect for those who want to reach Venice in an easy way, with connections all night! The lady at the reception was very kind and helpful and speaks a very good English.

We enjoyed our stay at La Residenza. If you want to avoid the high prices in Venice this is a good alternative. It was very nice and clean and spacious. The bathroom and shower were the biggest we had on our trip. We liked the location in Mestre once we found it as it was behind Piazza Ferretto, the main square which was very lively with lots of shops and restaurants. It was also fairly close to the bus stop that we used to arrive and to go to Venice.
We had a very difficult time finding it and once we did (after asking people), the bell did not work so we had to call. The phone number that they give you- the people do not know English well at all so there was a communciation problem. Once they finally understood that we were there, they called the gal that managed the place and she let us in. The map and directions on the website are not too helpful. I will tell you that it is behind the "Barche Plaza" where there is a tall bldg that looks like a dept store with a store called COIN, behind that is a Banca Intesa and behind that you will see a small restaurant with a white canvas roof over the tables that go up in points like a circus top. Just to the right of that little restaurant is the very small street Calle de Sale and it is not well marked. The B&B is on the left in an apt type building. I only want to spare other people from the problem we and many other people have had because once you find it, it really is a nice place.
The "free parking" that they give you is quite a distance away behind an abandoned building with no parking signs but apparently they don't tow.
