Firstly, if you want to stay in Dolo, and you are on a budget...this is the spot. Clean, Affordable, helpful, big rooms, big bathrooms and so it goes on.

To highlight some main points, Dolo is the cheap alternative to see Venice, it is by no means the most glamorous. We travelled by car but utilized the bus to get us into Venice as parking is expensive and there's also the fact that there are no cars in Venice. So based on this we had no choice but to use the bus, it was close to walk to, ran from four in the morn till 11 or 12pm every 30min or so and cost 7 euro return from Dolo.

Dolo is a tiny little village, there are some eating spots but it is by no means a hub of liveliness, if you purely need a base for Venice and you might grab a local dinner close by then stay here, just to note, ...

Breakfast at Ca'tron costs 6 euro -it's the typical Italian layout of croissants, cheese, toast and coffee. The shower is great but loses heat quickly, I had it on the hottest and it was warm enough and then got a bit cooler. If you walk from the hotel to the town or bus stop, be prepared to walk along the Main Street, not the safest but there is no path so just be aware and safe.

Overall, wonderful stay

This hotel is NOT in Venice, but it's in Dolo (23 km outside of Venice), there's a bus stop 500 yards outside the hotel and you can catch a bus that takes you straight into Venice, despite the location we had a lovely and excellent stay, the rooms are clean and affordable, the staff are lovely and friendly and the cleaning ladies clean and tidy the rooms on a daily basis, this hotel has free parking and free wi-fi, I'd definitely stay there again, the rooms are air conditioned and offer excellent value for money, if you don't mind the location, then it's a great and affordable choice in the beautiful but expensive city of Venice

We have been at this hotel 5 days in July and have been very satisfied and grateful with everything. A very nice staff, a very clean room and a nice breakfast with good coffe for the start of the day.

You are nearby the mainroad to Dolo, but it doesn't matter because of the very sound proofed window in the room. We didn't rent a car but took the public transportation. That is a little difficult but you can get used to it. From the hotel to Venice is between 30-50 minuts driving in public transportation. Even though it took some time to get out to Dolo, it was nice for us that you actually did get away from all the other tourists in Venice.

If you are thinking about staying at this hotel and renting a car, the location is awesome. You are so close to Venice and it's very easy to go there by car, and the same time you are out on the "countryside" where you can enjoy good food (the food in Venice is nothing special), the nature and a interesting city (Dolo). Dolo is located around 500-700 meters from the hotel.


Good:
- Nice staff
- Good food for realistic prices nearby
- Nice clean rooms

Bad:
- If you go to Venice every day, be aware of the transportation

Info:
- If you have greased cloth you need to iron, bring a iron yourself

Stayed at Hotel Ca Tron during the first week of July. The hotel itself is very nice and the staff is quite friendly. Even though the reception closes at 9pm, they stayed around until we got there because I had emailed them ahead of time telling them that our flight would get to Italy quite late.

However, the hotel itself was a lot farther from Venice than I had thought. It took on average about 45 minutes from Dolo Deposito bus station to Piazzale Roma in Venice, which is quite a lot of time if you only have a few days to spend. The money we saved on the hotel ended up being spent on bus tickets anyway.

Pros:
Very clean, good roomkeeping.
Dolo town is quite lovely and we wouldn't have seen if we hadn't stayed here.
Friendly, accommodating staff.
Hotel felt homey; lobby was very nice.

Cons:
Big mattress was weirdly split in the middle, made it uncomfortable for 2 people.
Pillows were super thin, uncomfortable.
They do not provide duvets, only thin sheets, which made every night very cold.
Far distance from Venice.
Dolo bus deposito is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel, but there is no sidewalk, so one must walk on the bike lane and be very close to cars speeding by.

We loved the quiet locale right on the Brenta canal, nice for walks. Rooms spotless, meticulous housekeeping, staff very gracious and helpful (helping out with bookings, lending us a tom tom, etc.) Very good breakfast with coffee bar. Easy access to Venice and Padua by bus along the canal. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Would certainly recommend.

The couple who own the hotel are just lovely and very kind. They bought me up a slice of cake for my bday :))

Pros: price and nice clean room
Must have the breakfast buffet!
The town Dolo is quaint
Quiet rooms
Good wifi

Cons: the heating was not working
The pillows are as thin as toast
No close shops, only vending machine with crackers/cookies if hungry
Takes 45 mins by bus to town (10 min walk to bus stop)

Keep in mind that Accomodation is not cheap in Venice and you may have to stay out of town for a reasonable price.

Thanks for a lovely stay overall, are you in Australia :)

We couldn't believe the value this place offers. It was so inexpensive compared to anywhere in Venice and it is only about a half hour bus ride away. The place is VERY clean, quiet, and the two ladies behind the counter were so friendly, hospitable and helpful. We loved our stay here. We had a little confusion with the reservation but they did their best and helped us solve it. Dolo is a cool little Italian town as well if you can't get to Venice. Walk around and check it out!
