Hotel Centrale

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed here through a Wowcher offer. Very easy hotel to locate from the train station. Only 15 min walk so no need to get a taxi. Lots going on around the hotel, a shopping centre, lots of places to eat and drink if you don’t fancy staying out too late in actual Venice. To get to Venice so easy, get the bus ticket from the tobacco shop next to the hotel for 3 Euro return then go to bus stop outside supermarket and get on bus 7e which takes you straight to Venice then to return bus 7 at Venice bus stops. Hotel is very clean and a great location, staff are helpful and friendly. We found our room a little chilly but got moved to another room without any hassle at all. A little tax to pay at the end of the stay but not much. Breakfast was good with choices of fruit, pastries, cereal etc. No coffee or tea facilities in the room tho. Ladies you do get a hairdryer but that’s it. Only a few English channels on the tv but at least it’s something. A nice hotel in an ideal location, so easy to get into Venice but just as nice shops around the hotel area too.

We booked through a Wowcher deal and so never have high expectations but this hotel deserves 3 stars. On arrival we weren’t able to check in early which was disappointing but there was a safe room to leave our luggage in. The receptionist gave us a map and information on how to get the bus into Venice, its really easy which we were glad about as we didn’t want to pay out loads for taxis. The hotel location is good, it is right opposite a supermarket and a 2 minute walk away there are some really lovely restaurants within a small market square which also has shops. We had upgraded our room with breakfast. The room itself is small, but the bed is big and comfortable. The decor is dated compared to the newly refurbished reception. The room was clean on arrival and the sheets obviously fresh with 4 towels provided, however there is no tea/coffee and no shampoo or conditioner, the only soap is from a dispenser (one in the shower and one by the sink). The shower itself is not very powerful and the temperature differs while you are in there, going cold a few times. We were on the 5th floor and had a balcony which was nice, very pretty at night. There is a lot of traffic noise but not enough to disturb your sleep, however the walls are VERY thin and you can hear everything from next door. Breakfast was alright, there wasn’t a massive selection but the chocolate croissants are fresh and yummy, plus there is a good selection of tea/coffee & juice. Overall, if you are looking for somewhere cheap and close to Venice but don’t want to pay Venice prices this hotel is ideal.

Hotel was clean but very basic the room was a shoe box size and the noise outside was terrible at nighttime ,2 sleeplessness nights .the day time staff okay but night staff very rude and unhelpful ,it’s next to a lovely Japanese restaurant and shopping centre and bus stops into Venice just round the corner from the hotel I’d say there is much nicer hotels near by the same price with better rooms .

We had a Groupon deal which placed us here, so slightly wary, but from the start staff excellent. I emailed in advance about location and received response very promptly. On arrival staff helpful and remained so whole stay. Very easy to get to Venice, number 7 bus stops almost outside, but walk 200m and you can get number 2 which is even more frequent and runs 24h, it takes around 15 mins to get to Piazzale Roma. Staff advised on places to eat in Mestre on evening we arrived and then on things to do etc in Venice. Hotel comfortable and clean, exactly what you would expect from a three star hotel. No issues at all staying here. Would really recommend if you are looking to visit Venice but looking at avoiding higher hotel rates in Venice itself.

Great hotel about 20 mins by bus to venice bus tickets available from shop next door room basic but clean hotel near nice bars shops etc will definitely be returning as would love to see more of mestre

Great hotel, nice and clean. Very friendly and approachable staff who were also helpful with everything we needed. Our room had a balcony and a nice view looking over the library. A great location for transportation, buses and trams near to take us to Venice and surrounding areas.

We booked a deal through Wowcher so we didn't get a choice of the hotel, but we were very happy with Hotel Centrale. Ten minute walk from the bus station where we got dropped off from the airport shuttle and right in the centre of the lovely Mestre. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. Told us about the shop next door to get bus tickets and a map for where we needed to be. The staff must have spoken at least four languages fluently and from what I saw made every guest feel very welcome. There was a bus stop right outside the hotel which took you into Venice and these buses ran very frequently. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience a little bit more of Italy without paying the cost of staying in the heart of Venice!

Stayed for two days in Dec 2017 Horrible experience Room reeked of Chlorine Requested for a change of room, met with a response that request should have been lodged within 15 min of check in Once, I insisted, they relented Breakfast spread was poor. Cleanliness was below par Central location is the only positive No parking facility provided Will not stay in this hotel ever

Just home from a trip to Venice (literally 15mins away on local bus) Highly recommend this hotel-rooms exactly what we paid for. Spotlessly CLEAN,extremely helpful and friendly hotel receptionists. Very central hotel with Mestre right on your doorstep. Supermarket,post office literally across the road. Bars,taverns,cafes and shop surround this hotel. Buses,trams efficient,regular and cheap. We’ll be back thanks 👍🏽

After handing over our Luggage to the Hotel Reception, one Laptop Bag with many important travel documents & credit cards, was missing within 5 minutes. The Hotel Management shrugged off their responsibility, when an old Lady informed us that she saw a Hotel Waitress moving a bag towards the common toilet next to the Dining Room. We all rushed to that Toilet & found the Bag kept behind the WC, all the chains of the bag were opened. On seeing this, the Receptionist charged the old lady for disclosing the information to us. We were about to move to the Police & the Embassy, but restrained ourselves to avoid any wastage of time during our Holiday. Our experience says that the Hotel runs a racket of theft of the belongings of the Boarders/Customers & we suggest all travelers not to go to this Hotel. While we travel on a Holiday with family, we need peace & enjoyment, rather than getting into such traps & losing our belongings....... hope this is true for everybody.
