Hotel Villa Costanza3.5 out of 5.0

Nice enough hotel. Glad we stayed in Mestre rather than in Venice itself. Getting to some hotels in Venice city can be a nightmare, we saw lots of dragging bags over cobbles and lifting over narrow bridges, also the city restaurants are mainly for the tourists, so don’t always try too hard. Good points about the Costanza is that our room was generally quiet although we could occasionally hear heels clicking from the people on the floor above. Breakfast at E9.50 was good, buffet help yourself, usual continental fare plus scrambled egg and either sausage or bacon. Wi-Fi reception was good but a little annoying that you had to enter username and password every time you used it. Bad points were that there didn’t have enough storage for bits and bobs - no drawers. Also they have fitted smoke detectors right over the head of the bed, these have a bright flashing light that blinks every 3 seconds, not good for trying to get to sleep. The air conditioning looks new, but seems to have a mind of its own, woke up a few times room too hot despite being on and window closed. General advice for Venice. The hotel sells a transport pass that does the buses and water boats (vaporettos). Once bought to get to Venice take the number 2 bus five minutes away, turn right out of hotel door to main road, right again and 100 yards where yellow bus box painted on the right hand side of the road. Bus is generally busy, but got a seat couple of times. A word of warning watch for pickpockets we had a busy bus and a guy with a coat over his arm simply getting too close. When we got off my wife’s bag was unzipped, fortunately nothing gone this time. If using travel pass must validate every journey, yellow box on bus or at landing stage before getting on vaporetto, green boxes are for checking not validating. Bus is probably better than train as already paid for if you bought a card, bus stop closer to hotel and at the Venice end, vaporetto stops at the bus station before train station, so better chance of getting seat. When in Venice if near to the Rialto Bridge go just to the north east of the bridge and there is a large store, not particularly obvious with signs Fondaco Dei Tedeschi, there is usually a guy on the door but he didn’t stop us. Two good things about this place. Free entry to a roof terrace with good views over the rooftops of the bridge and down the canal and secondly free toilets, a rarity in Italy. If you are looking for a restaurant try the Osteria Wood. You will need directions off google as it is a little out of the way. About 10-15 mins stroll from hotel. We were recommended this place by another TripAdvisor reviewer and like them we went back a second night. It is a bar and not a swanky restaurant, don’t go off first impressions as we had a couple of excellent meals. It is a locals place, everything is written in Italian, but the staff have enough English to explain what they are serving that night. There is a bit of a menu which is more a guide than a menu as they go shopping and decide what to cook on the day. As you go in on the left end of the bar there is a choice of mezes, which we had a two or three of them for a starter. I had a three mezes, a main course and two large beers and it was about E21.00.
We arrived after a awful train ride, with a flight from Marco Polo the next day. What a relief to find a large, comfortable, and well-appointed room and a very helpful staff. The staff was very friendly and helpful, including calling to be sure a restaurant had space available.
My husband and I found this place after spending several hours on Tripadvisor searching for the perfect hotel for our Venice vacation. We trusted the reviews and I am so glad we did, the hotel absolutely lived up to expectations. Hotels in Venice can be ridiulously expensive therefore I specificly searched in Mestre. Hotel Villa Costanza is about 10 minutes walk from Mestre Train station. This is also where Barzi or ATVO coach bus drops you off if you are coming from Treviso Airport. The hotel's area seems residential, one way street therefore it is quiet. The hotel is in great condition and very clean. The room was spacious, the bed was comfortable. The room has AC controller so you can set the temperature but it will not operate if you open the windows (make sense :) ) The room was cleaned every day and fresh towels were provided every day. There was a welcome drink (two bottles of water and a Nestea) offered upon our arrival in the minibar. The staff was very helpful and their hospitality really made our stay pleasant. We were given lots of good advice and a map to the hotel's area, Venice and the Vaporetto (water bus) lines. It also included directions for sightseeing. They sell bus and Vaporetto tickets which is really convenient so you do not have to buy it on the bus. #2 bus leaves from just around the corner and takes about 15 minutes to get to Venice. The staff offered that we can take a look at the breakfast every day and decide if we would like to have breakfast there for €4.5/person (coffee+brios) or for €9.5/person (buffet breakfast) This was great that we had this option. Although I cannot comment on the breakfast itself because we were up early (before hotel serves breakfast at 7:30) and decided to have our cappuccino and croissant at the nearby coffee shop which actually cost us about €7 altogether. We did not visit any of the recommended restaurants (Columbus, Dante, Moro, etc) based on Tripadvisor reviews. But we did go to Wood Pub 3 nights out of our 4 night stay and had fantastic food there for the helf of the price it would have cost in Venice. If we were to visit Venice again we would definitely stay at Hotel Villa Costanza. Suberb hotel, Highly recommend it!
I stayed with my husband for three nights on our trip to Venice. The hotel is very nice, the room very clean, big, and very modern. Wifi works great and you have to ask for an additional password for every device, also you have to re enter the password every time you log in but I didn't have a problem with that at all. The staff were very friendly, they spoke english and Spanish very well, they were very helpful. I wrote to them a lot of mails before getting there because I wanted directions on how to get there walking from the station or in a taxi, also I wrote them in advance to let them know that we were going to be checking in late and they were very polite to answer my questions. The neighborhood is safe, the hotel is near the bus stop to catch the bus to go to Venice and also very near to the train station. They sell the tickets to the vaporetto and bus depending on how many days you are going to stay, it gives unlimited rides for 24, 48 or 72 hours. We didn't get the chance to eat breakfast because we left early every day to avoid the crowds in Venice and in the bus but we had coffee which was great. Our stay was great, we didn't have any problems or complaints and I would highly recommend this hotel if you want to avoid the crowds in Venice.
This was our favorite B&B of our entire Italy vacation....this location has a certain charm to it and is conveniently locate just outside of Venice...it's only a quick 15 minute inexpensive bus ride over....word of caution however....bus is VERY crowded!
We chose to stay at Mestre because we did not want to stay in Venice avoiding price hotel. However, we needed to take bus from mestre to Venice every day even it was just 15 mins journey. Sometimes the bus was quite full. This is a give and take. For the hotel itself, the location was close to Mestre Train station and the bus stop to Venice. The room was clean and quiet. We stayed 3 nights which was very good experience.
Excellent hotel, friendly staff, very easy to find and just a short hop into Venice. We used the train which was cheap, and also very quick and not at all crowded. The hotel rooms were very modern, clean and quiet. Would definitely make this our first choice again on our next visit to Venice
We spent several nights in this quiet and clean hotel in Mestre ... a bus ride from Venice, this hotel offers quality and value away from the noise and bustle of Venice ... we bought three day passes at the hotel and used buses and water transit without limits ... hotel staff are friendly and helpful offering many suggestions to improve our visit... facility is breezy and pleasant, clean and tidy offering a rest after a busy day in Venice
The room and bathroom were excellent and wifi was quick. Easy to get to from the train station and helpful staff. Very modern and comfortable hotel in a quiet neighborhood. We were disappointed by the lack of restaurants nearby since we needed breakfast before the hotels breakfast hours. Left luggage was a bit concerning because our bags were just left next to the reception desk which is not constantly staffed.
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.
