I was given the smallest room in the hotel, although it did have a balcony. A new bar has opened opposite. They played very loud music until 2 in the morning. This made it impossible to sleep. No Aircon only heat available which meant the door had to be kept open all the time. Mosquitoes, so take a spray. Excellent local transportation available.
I suppose is my own fault, It was the first time I tried one of those Groupon Holidays. and this was the Hotel they set up with for our Venice trip, And it was awful the room was smaller then you can imagine, literally just the bed and what they call a desk but more like some wood to put some of your stuff on. Neither that bathroom or the bed were clean, there were literally hair on the toilet seat. and in the bed. There was so much noise coming into the room from the corridors , not that people were loud no. it was just that walls and doors are so paper thin you could hear everything. The Location was like a Ghetto we didn't feel save at all not even during the day, I don't want to be fussy and myself grew up in what you call a rough neighbourhoods but OMG this was even a lil much for me in terms of creepy people riding there bikes on the street etc. The bus link is good to the Venice but really always packed you wont get to sit down or even stand freely. They don't allow ions, don't have proper cupboards and don't even have a fridge
This hotel is alright if you just want somewhere to park your head at night. The facilities are sparse with only breakfast on offer in an overcrowded area so we had breakfast each day at the little bar next door for only €3. In the tiny double room with a be squeezed in against two walls and a tv smaller than my iPad Pro, no tea or coffee making available in the room. In fact once you had breakfast the only thing available was from a small chiller in reception. The air conditioning did not work and nor did the fan in the bathroom, we spoke to someone on reception to report it and the response was that they had gone from winter straight to summer with no spring so air conditioning was not on ? Having viewed the hotel online their website is very creative only a few rooms appear to have either a balcony or terrace. Venice is a 15 min bus ride from the hotel but, choose the time that you travel as it can be like being on a cattle truck, there is a little kiosk in the square that sells tickets for the public transport, if you are there for a few days it is well worth getting one of the inclusive passes that lets you have unlimited use of the buses and water buses. It is also cheaper to use this method to visit the 3 islands rather than the tour as you only get 45 mins on each island so you don’t really get time to see much or time to eat, the inclusive pass gives you more freedom and, it’s a great way to get around Venice if you are not up-to lots of walking.
Taken away by my partner. Basic stay and hotel needs work doing. Can not connect to WiFi and isn’t in a great area. Music loud from bar underneath and the rubbish lorries and recycling kept up awake. We have to travel from Venice to Florence requiring a good sleep and only had 4 hours. Would not stay again
The hotel was booked for us and may have better rooms than ours. The room was small and basic with no extras but it was clean with towels changed daily the bed was comfortable. Food was excellent with a varied breakfast. Leave the hotel and walk 100 metres along the road in front of it. Turn right and you find 'The Bar Milano'. They speak English and sell bus tickets. I.50 euros return to Venice. Walk back around the corner and take the 7a bus labelled Venitia. Buses have three machines to activate your ticket. One at the front, one halfway back and one at the rear. Just touch the ticket and the machine will buzz. Fifteen minutes to Venice bus station right beside the Grand Canal. The hotel reception speak English and close by are nice restaurants, wine bars and a supermarket. It might be wise to get drinks for the room. Venice is very easy to understand and get around. It is best to start at the Bus/Rail stations from where you can get into the city or find boat/buses called Vapporetti. Looking at guide books and maps confuses the situation as they do not explain the actual layout well. The rail station is right alongside the grand Canal but maps show it at one end as if separate. Access to Mestre from Marco Polo Airport is easy. Ticket machines are by the carousels and buses leave from outside. Put your ticket into the yellow machines before boarding to actuate the ticket.
This hotel is very well located, especially for those on a budget or visiting Venice for a short trip, like we did. Getting to Venice was very simple as the bus stop was only a few steps away and the bus services were 24h so we were free to explore as long as we wanted. Personally staying in Mestre is better when travelling with plenty of luggage or with children as it would be quite a hassle dragging your luggage across Venice. The hotel rooms were decent in size but lacked a few basic amenities, such as a minibar. I did suffer from many bug bites throughout the stay and saw flies in one of our rooms constantly. The rooms in the case need an upgrade in my opinion. I also think that the hotel could improve its communication better before arrival. I contacted the hotel twice before about our flight timings (hence requesting an early check-in) as well as connecting rooms. I received no reply and this was taken as new information upon checking in. Our flight arrived at 10:30, so we were asked to place our luggage’s in the breakfast room and wonder around Mestre for an hour and a half. I did ask whether we could have a later check out too since our flight departed from Venice at 22:30, but was asked to pay up €40, despite there being several vacant triple rooms. I later asked another staff member and they told me it’s €30 - so clearly there is no fixated rule about this. We decided to leave our bags in the breakfast room again, visit Venice, and called the taxi just after a late lunch. To be honest I didn’t expect to be thrilled, after having read previous reviews, and it was a very brief visit. For those staying longer, travelling light or with grown ups then maybe you’d be better off staying in Venice itself. The location for the length our trip was by far the best factor about it.
We used the hotel as a base for a trip to Venice. Easy enough to catch public transport from very near the hotel. Room was very small with a double bed bar was a bit tricky to manoeuvre around. Hotel staff nice enough! Very helpful. Hotel quite loud at night - the bar next door seem to enjoy recycling at all hours of the night 🙈 Advice- if you want to dry your hair in time shorter than an hour, take your own hair dryer! Overall an ok stay. You get what you pay for!
Friendly staff, room clean, maybe need a little refresh, but nothing was missing, quiet area. Little tricky description about distance from train station, but still ok, you’ve got bus and tram service available. Breakfast was looking good but we did not buy it. At the end there is city tax, but again if you read description you may find i formation about it. I am writing about tax, because some of the guest was surprised. I would recommend.
My honest opinion is that this hotel is very basic but you get what you pay for. Don't book it if you want luxury but if like us it is a base for your holiday it is great. Rooms are nothing special but clean, the bathroom is average size with a small shower but it does the job. Breakfast is adequate with cereals, plenty of bread and rolls and copious amounts of cakes and biscuits, orange juice and hot drinks. Definitely enough to start your day. We found the staff particularly the females to be very helpful and knowledgeable, english was ok. The hotel is in an excellent position to get into Venice, you purchase a ticket in tobacco shop nextdoor 1.50 euro each way, then get the 7 or 7E bus from busstop opposite, outside supermarket (reasonable priced). The bus takes about 15/20 minutes and is 24 hours. Venice was amazing, loads of shops, restaurants and bars. Didn't do a gondola as felt they were overpriced! Top Tip: Eat in Venice as we couldn't find anywhere decent to eat around the hotel, none of them opened til 6. Good bar opposite hotel, seems tobe frequented by the local youngsters.
Hotel is very basic, but the room we had 229 was cleaned every day with clean towels. The only problem we had was the pub in the corner decided to empty all there bottles in the bottle bank at 02.30. The staff are very friendly, Overall our stay was good. Would I go back, yes very central with lots of shops and restaurants and great location for a bus to Venice.
