Hotel was excellent Staff bent over backwards to help out Only one complaint and that was no tea making facilities in the bedroom Hotel is near the metro but not many restaurants close around the area Can recommend the bar call the little devil They have a happy hour between 6:30 and 9:30 where they serve snacks for 1 Euro on top off your drink for as much as you can eat

Budget hotel. If arriving by train or bus take tram 2, from there it's a bout a ten minute walk. The local area is good has everything you need such as shops, eating etc. that also is a ten minute walk. The room is fairly dated, but clean. Good quick check in. Room has a small fridge so very handy. The bed was quite hard and flat hard pillows as you get in all of Europe. Breakfast was good. Wifi was terrible, I was basically unable to book onwards journeys or do any research as it constantly keep disconnecting and had whirlies. It might have been better in the lobby but I couldn't be bothered to try as we were only staying two nights,. Tram 1 took you to Venice and that takes about 15 minutes.

Good location - number 15 bus straight from/to the airport. Bus or tram from round the corner straight over to Venice. Hotel clean, staff helpful, continental breakfast not bad - what more do you want !

We found this Hotel fine for a few nights stay, very clean, staff very helpful & pleasant, breakfast had everything you could want. Mestre was unexpectedly lovely with lots of restaurants to choose from. Not maybe the best position, a little out of centre, close to bus to go into Venice, buy vaporaetto tickets at bus station or newstand €20 a day includes bus & tram. Beware taxi price from Hotel to cruise port,€40, go by bus then people mover.

Better than the reviews suggest. Close enough to Venice to not be an issue getting there, Mestre town centre (around the square) is a 10 minute walk has a few bars/restaurants which are fine. Breakfast is perfectly adequate and the staff will help if asked. Room on first floor was ok (if a little traffic noise), overall I would go back if in the area.

Arrived in Mestre on the train from Rome. Walked to hotel, but had to ask for directions. Room was lovely and warm, also quiet. Bed was one of the best we’ve slept in on holiday. Television didn’t have any English speaking channels. Fridge in room. Supermarket in basement of shopping centre. Catch the 4L to Venice. Right out of hotel, then right at traffic lights. Staff were very helpful. Printed off our bus ticket to Treviso airport. Ryanair shuttle bus. Breakfast was enjoyable. Reception staff were friendly and accommodating. Lovely clean and well situated hotel, we were pleasantly surprised. We did a free walking tour of Venice which was good. We took a travel kettle as no drink facilities. Unfortunately we couldn’t change the rain.

3 Nights here is enough to put anyone off visiting Venice! Apart from clean sheets and towels the hotel offers nothing to make your stay enjoyable. Continental breakfast was dreadful and the staff serving were just as bad. Never a good morning or a smile. Reception tried to be helpful (in their own way) but miserable and un-smiling. On a happier note there is a small roadside bar just down the road heading out of Mestre.... they will make you very welcome there, with smiles and great drinks.....the hotel bar was of course closed!

On arrival we were given our key to our room by a man at the desk ,no welcoming smile or greeting.Looking around the room all seemed okay if not a bit dated we found the hair dryer did not work (an essential for 3 ladies) the safe did not work and one of the few lights did not work . We immediately informed the desk ,it was never sorted.We flew with Monarch and were very worried about the situation and asked the man on the desk if he knew anything about it and he just shrugged his shoulders and said I know nothing but it was all over the tv stations( of which we did not understand being in Italian) he was just not helpful at all it was a very impersonal place,not one I would stay in again. It did not rate 4 star status. The hotel was about 20 minutes from the main part of Venice by bus.The breakfast was fair but they did not have a kitchen so the food was limited. If you wanted an evening meal you had to go and search for somewhere to get one which was not easy we did find a Chinese restaurant but little else unless you liked sushi. Not a hotel I would recommend.

As part of our package we stayed at this hotel twice. Once on the 3rd floor and the other on the 2nd floor. Both rooms are 3 star at best. The first room was the worst... there was water damage on the ceiling, dirty pillow cases as we arrived and the shower doors did not fully close properly. The other room was better but nothing fantastic. Generally the dooms are a tight squeeze and outdated. The wifi is temperamental and there is no air circulating in the rooms are the windows only semi open from the top (which you can’t leave open since the mosquitos will eat you alive). Hotel reception and breakfast area are clean.

This is not a 3 star hotel which is advertised more like a b&b the room we had to as on the second floor overlooks owing the main road which could be quite noisy, the carpet was disgusting with lots of dirty stains, the rest of the room was ok for the 3 nights we were there but glad it wasn't for longer. Breakfast was rather busy and warm food soon ran out the staff needed some customer relations training none of them could break a smile. There is no bar at this hotel we bought our own and sat on the settees behind reception. You can buy from reception tram tickets which you can go into Venice at 1 Euro 50 each way you can get the tram from the mestre centre. One bonus was that you got clean towels every day. This hotel is close to tram station to get about if I come to Venice again I will look more into where I stay before I book. But I suppose the cost of this trip reflected the price of the hotels that the tour operator gave us.
