very nice hotel, runs by chinese. There are also many chinese or japanese tourists. Breakfasts were really good, gives you a big variety, buffet. rooms and towels are clean and change everyday. only 5minutes to bus station to venice. in area there
are 3 restaurants, but only one small quite expencive shop, i couldn't find any supermarket. good choice if you want to save money.
Staff was super friendly - game me a map, explained transportation, circled the sites to hit up in Venice. Hotel itself was nothing special but seemed clean and a very modest breakfast was provided. I got a single room and it came with two single
beds and a foldout - plenty of room. All in all, was a good place to stay that easily got me to Venice without the steep price.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
I read that Venice has no nightlife, but we were able to find plenty of bars on a Saturday night in Venice (by the Rialto bridge). Buses run all night so no need to cut the night short to get back across the bridge to the hotel
One should be able to find better value for their money even in Venice. To me, the biggest turnoff was the below average condition of the facility. Worn-out carpets, hallways smelling of a mixture of cleaning chemicals and ethnic foods, the price
which I think was outrageously high considering the above.
Amazingly it's rated as a 3* when I think even a 2* star rating would be too generous.
The only positive thing I could say about it was the staff was helpful and friendly and it is close to the VE-Mestre railway station.
The hotel was good, but the morning manager was not particularly helpful (the afternoon manager on the other hand was very helpful and friendly)
The room was clean, and the hotel is very near the Mestre train station, however is on the Maghera
part of town, not Mestre itself. one other detail, there are no convenience stores and/or restaurants close by, which is a disadvantage
