Good location for a short stay

Staying in Mestre is great if you don't want to pay Venice hotel prices. There's an excellent restaurant within walking distance and the bus takes you to Venice in an OK amount of time. Keep in mind, though, that San Marco Square is about a 50-minute walk from where the bus drops you. Room was tiny with no space between the bed and wall. It was fine but not somewhere I'd want to spend any time.

Perfect reasonable off island location

We have a rental car and were looking for accommodations that offered parking and easy access to transportation to the island.........Ducale Hotel was it! Perfectly located to bus lines 19 and 4 which take about 25 minutes to reach the island. The rooms are typical for Italy, but clean and comfortable. There is a small TV with SKY cable, nice safe that has a code instead of key. Breakfast is a very nice spread offering most everything you need to start a wonderful day in Venice! Additionally, the entire staff was FANTASTIC.....friendly and very helpful. If you're looking for a reasonable alternative to the island.......this is a PERFECT spot!

Ducale Hotel Venice

Great price. Very good breakfast. Close to Marco Polo Airport. The room was small even by European standards. If you pay on line, be aware of the room tax that was not included in what I paid on line. The hotel insists that it be paid in cash which was a problem for me since I only had enough Euros left to pay for the van to the airport (15 euros)

Staff very helpful.

Needed directions from the Island of Venezia. They offered the correct bus number and the correct stop. The people at the bus station could not help us. I am very grateful I contacted the staff about this. We also needed a taxi to the airport. It was reasonable, and the driver was safe. Most travellers have scary stories travelling in a taxi. We needed our luggage stored for a few hours after check out, and they allowed us to do so. Their English was easily understandable, and they made every effort to communicate in English, vs. Italian. I did not expect the level of fluency. They also allowed my daughter a pastry and yogurt before she left for her 5am travel time to the airport.

Misleading

Very bad. Check-in was fine. Second staff comes on and it was so bad we slept at airport and did not use this hotel. This hotel is far away from everything, shuttle to airport was mis-leading as price was not fixed and they wanted up to 30 euros per person. Bus line 5 to Airport one must go back to Plaza Roma, so in fact this hotel is not user friendly for aiport. Buses stop running at 18k and one must go back to Rail, Ship and plaza roma which makes this hotel a very poor choice to stay at. Staff swore at me when I mentioned that morning staff quoted lower shuttle price than her. BAD!BAD!BAD!

Stay near Plaza Roma as this has accesibility to everything, ie. train,bus, cruise port all within walking distance Venice airport is closed from 1230am to 430am so getting there is non existant almost Do not stay near airport as they get you with an expensive shuttle price and you are not near anything

Not the best choice

Had a room for three that was more suitable for two in size. Arrived at 7:30 PM and found the restaurant closed, so had to walk a few blocks to find a good family restaurant. Cost of taxi from airport was 27 Euros for 4.5 miles and the cost of the shuttle arranged by the hotel back to airport was 30 Euros. No shulltle service available from airport, and we were under the impression from the description that the shuttle went both ways and would be free. Suggest you stay closer to the airport and pay more for the room to get free shuttle service.

Met our needs

We arrived much later than expected due to connecting flight issues but were greeted very pleasantly by the night staff. Breakfast was good with a nice variety to choose from. The only flaw was there was no air conditioning making the temperature of the room somewhat uncomfortable for sleeping.

Disappointing Stay!

If you are accustomed to Air conditioning in hot weather, don't stay here after October 1st since they turn of the A/C in all rooms. Our stay was miserable without A/C. We had to sleep with the window open to get a little relief around midnight. The front desk clerk just said they were sorry. Our stay a week earlier was better since it was still September. The shower is tiny as is the elevator. Shuttle service is reasonable to cruise port and airport. Free breakfast and Wi-Fi are a plus.

If you like pizza, eat at Lady Pizza around the corner to the right of the hotel. Very reasonable.
