It might not look impressive from the outside, but it definitely makes a very good first impression after getting through the door. The staff is very nice, very helpful (to the point of leaving an unmanned reception desk behind and taking us to our room) and very informative. The room was quiet, spacious and comfy, modern, but at the same time had a great timber ceiling. The only downside was that after opening the window we had a view onto a tiled roof, could hardly see beyond it. Great breakfasts with lots to choose from. A short walk to a bus stop and then a short trip to the old Venice. Not a lot of places to eat near the hotel, we found two though that we liked and used to visit one of them (a cafe on the corner, oposite the bus station, with a very nice staff) regularly. We travelled in October 2015.
We stayed one night in early January. The location is excellent. We were given a huge room for a great affordable price which was very warm, comfortable and silent! They had free drinks for us in the mini bar and the following morning they gave us all the directions. Venice is ideal for day trips and we went there twice, retuning very late and had no problem at all as the train station is 5 minutes walk and the bus also very near, less than 2 minutes from the hotel. We had an issue with our hired car and the staff were very helpful and understanding. Driving there is a bit messy because of a lot of one way streets but you can park the car free outside the door! Thanks and will definitely come back!
Villa Costanza is in Mestre. That's on the mainland. To get to Venice, you will have to walk for 5 minutes to the train station and hop on a train to Venice. The train ride takes about 15 minutes. Considering Venice hotels are expensive and most likely you will have to lug your baggage through water ferries and narrow, crowded (not to mention cobbled) streets, the Mestre location seems not so bad. Besides, the train comes every 5 minutes or so and the service starts early in the morning and lasts late into the night. The hotel's location is largely residential. The street is very quiet. There are a handful of Asian restaurants nearby, which probably offers the cheapest meals in Venice. A supermarket is just around the corner. Safety at any time of the day shouldn't be an issue. As for the hotel itself, rooms are exquisitely furnished. The bathrooms are modern and beautiful. In fact, the rooms can pass for those of a four or even five star hotel. Remember, you're paying the price of a three star. So it's a good deal overall.
I'll be quick and short. The good was very nice finishes great staff and a very beautiful place to see. The bad is there was construction going on and that's all we could hear at first thing in the morning until fairly late at night. And nothing really near by to eat that was all that good. The ugly was the trek actually into Florence. It was a long walk to the shuttle bus. Then the ride in.
The hotel is situated in a quiet street 400 metres from bus and rail station so easy access to Venice and airport. Mestre centre is worth a visit. We were lucky enough to see the Christmas market. Lovely clean room, comfy bed. Plenty choice for breakfast including cereals, cold meats, cheeses, yoghurt, scrambled/boiled eggs, delicious bread/rolls. Really good freshly made coffee and choice of teas. The staff are excellent - very professional, helpful and friendly. Demetrius very kindly caught up with us at the bus station with our toilet bag which we had left behind. Would recommend you stay here and have dinner at Bistropub. Beautiful food at a great price. You won't be disappointed
we were glad we choose this hotel, it was everything the reviews said about it. the owner Alexadra was sooo helpful, very hospitable we had very little money left as iwas the last few days of our 2 weeks. we asked where a grocery store was, it was not far from the villa. we bought food stuff to eat back there. much cheaper than eating out. the breakfast was informal, which we loved. a variety of foods , something for everyone, laid out in the kitchen for you to help yourself and take to your table. the room was on the second floor and was very comfortable. there was several english channels on tv,which was nice one of the days as it was raining , so we were home early. we enjoyed our stay and would do it again. also enjoyed the Lido for its quietness. would highly rec. not the Hilton , but a home away from home, really relaxed, nothing pretentious..so if you like that sort of atmophere, you wont be dissapointed.
We loved this hotel, it was very quiet and the staff were very accommodating. Our hotel room was quite small but it was a place to sleep not chill out in. The bed was comfortable, pillows a little to hard for me but I managed. Breakfast is extremely good with lots on offer including pastries, cakes, cereals, hot scrambled eggs and sausages. The best bit about this hotel is the close proximity to the bus station where buses leave to Venice Centro every 10 minutes. You can buy a bus pass for 48 hours which you can use as many times as you like which takes you straight to the centre of Venice. From the hotel you can also visit Mestre which is situated about 1.5 miles away and an easy walk. Divine shops, great cafes and outdoor areas to sit and people watch.
Booked this hotel as I wanted to try staying in Mestre for my annual Venice trip. It is quieter and cheaper than Venice proper and not as unattractive as some think. This hotel was recommended as one of the best in Mestre, and I would confirm that. It occupies an old house which has been totally modernised. The novelty was that my room had a window which opened direct into the public pavement but it caused no problem as the street is very quiet. It is near a busy road where one can get buses to Piazzale Roma or walk a couple of minutes more and catch the train. Some nice restaurants nearby (the reception staff gave me some excellent suggestions)
Stayed 3 nights. If you are out visiting all day then this is ok to come and spend the night.That;s what we did not by choice.We booked this to visit Venice.Had no idea of geographical location between Mestre and Venice. For dummies like me- Venice is an island.Mestre is before Venice. I booked the hotel thinking it was in Venice.Any way it's not hotel's fault. We got off train station and the hotel was in walking distance. Easy to find. Bus stop is just around the corner as well.Little tip for traveling to Venice- I would recommend taking train to Venice from Mestre station. It's only 10 mins and plenty of room.Buses are really crowded and slow.But boats and buses work with one ticket system.Not train. We bought a 24 hr ticket from reception for venice boats that includes Murano island and Burano Island and buses. Reseption staff was ok. Doing their job. Not overly friendly but helpful enough with maps and other info. No tea coffee in room. But offered to lend hot water. One night we asked for hot water to make our own tea. hotel staff asked whether we have a container.????!!!! Then reluctantly gave us some in their own jug. We put our tea bags in but tea didn't even infused.It was luke warm. Even hot water from tap was more hotter than that.Other hotels prepared us a tea tray when asked ,even including milk and tea bags. Only one hotel we had to pay 2 euros. Still it was nice. But not this one.Didn't even bother to give us hot water. We asked for a 3rd bed. Thankfully it was a nice single bed. Beds were comfortable and we had a good sleep.No road noise or inside noise. Nice clean room and bathroom.We left window open for a bit in the evening and mosquitoes started flying in.So we closed it.Lighting was bad Had 2 gloomy lights. Even to read a map we had to use our flash light from phone. Bathroom began to smell after a while similar to rotten egg. We tried opening windows and closing door tightly and at the end we folded a towel and covered the shower drain. Then it stopped. We had breakfast and there again urn had just warm water. When I turned it up the staff asked why and I explained. She touched the urn and understood. They had different kinds of milk.That was nice. Breakfast was good.Even though I accidentally booked it due to my ignorance It was a good location to stay. Reasonably priced and out of the way of busyness in Venice. Close to metro and buses.We has a nice stroll in Mestre town. Took the Italo train to Rome from station. I wouldn't stay there again..Didn't impress me as a friendly hotel. But reasonably priced considering the area.
This was our second stay here. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfy. The staff is really helpful as well. They have a small bar and nice breakfast room. The best thing is the value. It's a short public bus ride away from the Venice train station but the cost is much less expensive than staying in Venice proper.
