Hotel President4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This hotel is 3 star so don't expect too much. It's a relatively short walk from the main square with the restaurants but it's a 25 minute walk from the train station so not the best choice if you're planning to use it as a base for daily Venice trips. The breakfast was pretty good.
We spent one night of our two night stay in this hotel, due to the hotel that we booked having an 'electrical fault'. I had read previous reviews (since booking) that stated similar instances so I think this may have been an excuse. Although not ideal, we were transported to this hotel from the one about 5 minutes down the road and checked into our room. The hotel itself is quite dated and the room a bit dark, but clean nonetheless. The staff were pleasant but a little slow during check in and check out. it obviously wasn't this hotels fault that we were staying there so no complaint from that point of view. We didn't have breakfast so cannot comment on the food. It was a little further to the bus stop to travel over to Venice than the hotel we were meant to be in, but nothing drastic.
Hotel is well situated for catching bus into Venice(10mins on bus, 5mins walk). Hotel is welcoming and clean. Staff extremely helpful. Breakfasts have an adequate selection of food served in a clean well organised breakfast room. There is a bar area but we didn't use it. Room was well furnished and comfortable, more than adequate for a two night stop over. Bathroom good and clean but shower cubicle could do with a little tlc. Would recommend for a two three night value for money stop over for Venice.
Stayed one night before we went on cruise comfortable and breakfast good. As they only do breakfast had to find dinner venue found excellent Indian restaurant not far up Roland to left as you come out of door.
Very nice hotel although slightly out to visit Venice it's best to buy a ticket for bus and water taxi it's 20€ for 24 hours good value. Not much around hotel but if looking to eat good food take a left out of hotel walk to traffic lights turn right walk down to pedestrian cross and cross road eat at bef-ed very reasonable and good plate of food can recommend chicken and cheeseburger with fries .
Considering a stay at Hotel President? Here are some pros and cons I found after one night there: +It takes less than five minutes to walk to the closest tram stop. From there, it will only take you twenty minutes to get to Piazzale Roma in Venice. However, the tram will only bring you to the northernmost part of Venice, and you will have to spend more time travelling, either on foot or with vaporetto, if you want to visit other parts of Venice, such as a Piazza San Marco which, is located at the southern end of Grand Canal. In other words, this is a cheap and easy option, but not the best if you want to travel as little as possible during your visit to Venice. +Nice and helpful staff. We had some problems with the air conditioning in our room, but this was fixed immediately by the staff. -Low standard, as one already notices from the outside. Once, the lift stopped between two floors, and afterwards the staff told us that this is something that happens sometimes, as it was something they were used to.
When we arrived at hotel we thought it looked grotty and on a main road. The hotel is actually very nice but only does breakfast. They do not open the restaurant for lunch or in the evening. It is self service for breakfast which was acceptable for just a few days. Beds were comfortable and clean. 5 min walk to the town with a beautiful square with shops & restaurants. Would go back and stay in this hotel again
Absolutely disastrous hotel! It has been given 4 stars but does not deserve more than 2. Below is the list - rooms are not clean - rooms have holes - no functional air conditioning in room - lift can only allow 2 ppl - there is only 1 staff member during whole day and night. - staff are rude and not good English speaker - next to the bins so lots of mosquitoes in hotel I would not suggest at all !
If you decide not to stay on Venice island then this hotel is around 5 minutes walk from trams & buses which run into the centre of Venice. A taxi from the airport was €35, although if you get the Venice ACTV card which is €40 for a three day pass you can pay an extra €7 to get you into Venice from Marco Polo Airport, and then the Mestre Central bus to the hotel. Very Clean comfortable rooms, perhaps a little dated but you'll be spending your time in Venice and not in your room. Great shower too. Breakfast was good, cakes, rolls, toast, hams, fruit, bacon, eggs.
I'll start by saying I have been fortunate enough to visit a variety of countries around the world. I've never experienced a place as depressing as Mestre. We arrived at the hotel and we were politely attended to by a gentleman called Fabio. The hotel itself was fine if not a bit dated. There was no atmosphere in the hotel and we actually laughed and joked that no one else was staying there as we didn't see a single other person for the first 24 hours of our stay. The hotel is about a 5 to 10 minute walk to the bus/tram station for transport in to Venice which was convenient. I would recommend buying a tourist travel pass if you plan on making this journey more than once as you can also use this on the Vapporetto's in Venice. On our first night there the weather was pretty bad. Not a problem, there was a leaflet in our room saying the hotel had a bar which was open from 12pm. There is no such thing. In the hotel room we had an adequate size bathroom and bedroom area. Breakfast was provided every morning which was adequate. All in all the hotel was ok but Mestre leaves a lot to be desired.
