If you love the sound of breaking glass then this is the hotel for you. We were on the fourth floor overlooking the square and as our first night's stay was a Saturday night we were expecting some late night noise. The problem is that right outside the front of the hotel is a glass recycling point and between 1am and 2am all the bar owners use it to get rid of all of their empty bottles. The hotel is fine apart from that, clean, nice breakfast etc etc. Try for a back room if you have a choice as it might be less noisy.

The hotel was in the perfect location - a bus at the side took you all the way to Venice in about 15 minutes every 10 minutes . The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and comfortable - albeit a bit small . The towels were bath sheets which I was impressed with . The breakfast was great , juice, yogurt, fruit, cereal, croissant , cake , hard boiled eggs , cheeses and meats plus bread as well as coffee - great to fill up for a busy day !!

Basic but comfortable hotel with excellent reception staff. Good breakfast and opposite bus stop that takes you straight in to Venice in 20 minutes. Get the 2/3 day travel card and it works out very reasonable. Mestre has nice bars and restaurants too and you can be off the tourist trail in the evenings after a days sightseeing if you want to.

Handed over our Passports when checking in. They keep the Passports in a shelf behind reception (quite an open area). Received them back when we checked out. However, wasn't overly keen to be travelling for the remainder of our stay without identification on us. When we arrived to our room a plumber was fixing the toilet (with pipes etc out all over the floor). Our room was very basic. Cleanliness could improve - someone's body wash and shampoo left in our shower. Great buffet breakfast! Pretty good location for being on the Mainland. Close to public transport. Cute shops nearby!

The single room i stayed in was awful and dirty and way expensive for that facility. Helpful staff. Safe and Goof location. There was a bus station nearby and it takes 25 mins to center. But i don't recommend this place

So, you shouldn't expect more than a 3 stars hotel from Centrale. this hotel is near to the center of Mestre. I staid in this hotel for 2 nights. I had booked 1 single room and without breakfast. room and bathroom was very small but bed was comfortable. Cleanliness was acceptable. the room had a balcony to the front street. receptionist was polite. you can reach to the main train station in 20 minuets by walk. WIFI was available in the room but with many disconnection.

Very central budget hotel with good public transport links to Venice and easy walk to mestre central plaza. Friendly and helpful staff with good local knowledge. However, no bar, cheep quality breakfast and few services. Good to sleep, that's all.

I stayed on the 3rd floor for 3 nights, everything was good except cleanliness. Staff was ok and location is great ( easy to go to venice) and market located across the hotel. Breakfast was basic but good. The only complaint about the room is that the bedsheets were not very clean and i had skin allergey from the bedsheets, overall hotel is not very clean and i end up sneezing all the time

We stayed at this hotel on the 2nd leg of our Groupon Deal. I don't often write about negative experiences as when staying on short trips I do not have high expectations and want a lot from a room. However.... Firstly I would like to mention how one of the selling points of this hotel is that it had been refurbished in 2012. If this is truly the case I do not think Floor 1 had been done during that time. We stayed in room 102 and I do not think our room had been fully cleaned before our arrival. The sheets and linen were clean and clearly fresh, however we found dust on the bedside table and desk in the room which was less than acceptable. I struggle with skin allergies and my sister has asthma and the dust was not helping with these conditions. I found a dead fly stuck to the wall, litter next to my bed from previous guests and the Bathroom door would not close properly or lock. The bathroom was small, which was fine however the shower looked dirty with black stains and the sink was cracked. We found brown hairs on the towels and the toilet cistern appeared to make a dripping noise at all times. When we pulled back the curtain we found that the window was being held closed with parcel tape which didn't make us feel secure. On the second night we could hear our neighbors coughing and snoring which maybe could have been prevented if we could have closed the bathroom door. As I said earlier, I do not expect much however a lack of cleanliness is not something I can accept. I went down stairs to ask to change rooms however the female receptionist told me there were no other rooms for us to move to and we could be moved the next day if we still weren't happy.She said she would leave a note for her colleague so they would know of our room request the next day. When I asked her about the bathroom door not locking she said that this was for safety purposes however had no explanation for why the door would not close at all. She said she would send someone up to come and look at the door after said person had finished cleaning another room. After around 20 minutes a casually dressed male ( in his own coat, jeans and Vans, clearly ready to leave for the day) came up to look at the door. He spoke little English and it was hard to explain what the issues with the room were, he left quickly and nothing was done to rectify the situation. Still not overly happy with the room, although we had managed to survive a night in the room with the resident mosquitoes we went down to breakfast the next morning hoping it may turn everything around for the hotel. The Breakfast Room appeared to be in the same boat as Floor 1 and was last refurbed in 1912 not 2012. The pathetic answer for a toaster looked like something out of the Student Range in an Argos catalogue, and one of the Coffee Machines did not appear to work, with the other one looking like it needed a good clean. There were many posters up around the room to inform guests that taking breakfast away was forbidden, I didn't think there would be much risk of people trying to steal a stale croissant or empty cup of coffee, but still. Needless to say we didn't bother with Breakfast on the second morning, and instead went to a little cafe in the square around the corner ( 2.30 for a cappuccino and croissant seemed like a small price to pay compared to having nothing in the hotel). When we went to ask about changing rooms we were then told by a Male receptionist that this was no longer possible as we should have reminded them at the start of the day and there was no one around to clean the rooms to move us to. I asked if the female had passed on a message as she said and he didn't seem to know what I was talking about. From this we gave up with the Hotel and expecting any help from them. The WIFI at the hotel was not terrible however loading a webpage seemed more difficult than it needed to be. Location wise I would say this Hotel is very fortunate. It is a short walk away from Mestre Railway Station and a square around the corner with restaurants, cafe and bars. There was a small shopping mall with a H&M and a few shops, and the area had a few supermarkets which were good for stocking up on snacks and water at reasonable prices. We took the 7E bus to Venice from outside the Simply Supermarket up the road from the hotel which was an efficient service and cost 3 Euros for a return ticket. If i were to return to Venice I would stay in Mestre but would avoid Hotel Centrale at all costs. I will upload photos where I can, i did take videos but do not think I can upload these.

Much better than we expected. Room spotless and comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly. Right on the bus direct into Venice. Noisy bar across the road but closed about 1am. Lovely square and shopping area 5 minutes walk away.
