3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed at the San Carlo for 4 nights and were extremely pleased with the hotel and location. On arrival we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist with good English and were checked in immediately at 11.00 am. The room was very comfortable and spotless and the breakfast very good. Excellent location as the No.15 bus from the airport stops almost outside and the tram into Venice is nearby. Location was excellent. We really liked Mestre and ate in the Centre on three nights and the Bombay Indian Restaurant nearby on another night as it was pouring with rain which we found very good. Would definitely recommend this hotel and excellent value for money

Nice hotel situated on the canal, away from the centre of Mestre but very nera by to the tram station to Venice. Very good option for short stay, rooms are well equiped and clean, very quiet. Breakfast is not too rich but still good. Very good choice for quality and price.

Although the hotel was quite old, the furniture and the decoration, the staff is very polite and helpful. The breakfast is good for the money you pay. Nice connections with tram and the bus stop to airport/train station is just 150 meters away.

The staff is very friendly and care taking. The hotel sells tram tickets fr the Venezia tram. Rooms are well-sized and clean. Breakfast is nice but many cookies and not so much choice of bread. Free parking at the back is also very good.

I loved my stay in this hotel. I went with my family and they too loved the hotel and the services. The rooms are spacious and kept very neat and clean. The tram station is about 5-7 mins walk so although away from the city but commuting becomes so much easier. There are lots of eating joints near by its location so you will never go hungry. The receptionists were very helpful with every query we had and also guided us.

Clean room with nice fresh linen Staff were friendly and helpful Breakfast was a cold buffet lots of choice Tram stop 5 min walk (3 Euro return ticket to Venice) These can be bought at reception Mestre (centre) is approx 10 mins walk *** The off licence / wine shop on the corner by the tram shop is well worth a visit **** Great selection of wines from 3 euros a bottle. The friendly staff will even uncork at no extra charge !

Last minute booking when I had to change holiday plans. Clean and tidy throughout. Front desk staff extremely helpful. Close to tram stop into Venice. Breakfast was ok unless you're a really big eater. Only negative was that air con was not particularly effective.

Initially booked to stay for 2 nights; ended up staying 7 nights. Very convenient location from tram (costs 1.5 euro one way to Venice which can be bough at hotel reception desk) that is 5 minutes walking distance from hotel. Mestre City Center is 10-15 minute walk from hotel. The room/bathrooms were clean and recently remodeled. Breakfast included was pretty good and provided enough energy to go exploring Venice during the day. I want to mention the very kind and knowledgeable staff. Eleonora was fantastic. If you are going to explore Venice, please listen to her advice. Franchesco (sp?) was also extremely kind. We had a 6:55am flight and had to leave by 5am. He prepared full breakfast for us and had the cab already waiting for us when we came down from our rooms. Our family truly enjoyed our stay here; should we visit again, this is the place we will stay.

My room was clean, comfortable and there was no street noise. The walls are kind of thin so maybe ear plugs may be helpful, just in case. The price was well within my budget and the staff was most helpful. The tram stop is just around the corner for your day trip to Venice. Their website needs to clarify the bus ride to the hotel from the train station but the no. 15 bus stops almost in front of the hotel on its way to VCE. The wifi is fine except for the continuing need to log in. The morning breakfast is good and will fuel you up for the day to Venice and environs. The hotel is a pleasant walk down the street to downtown Mestre shopping and the lovely Piazza Ferretto. Mestre itself is quite charming. I would visit again.

Perfect location for visiting Venice & very reasonable price. For a city break I look for clean hotel, helpful staff & convenient location..this hotels ticks all the boxes. 2-3 minute walk round the corner gets you to the tram stop, which takes about 10-15 mins to get right into Venice...perfect! The tram is very modern & clean and runs until about 11:30/12:00, we felt very safe on it. The tram tickets can be purchased from reception or from a tobacco shop 5 mins walk into mestre. Main mestre train station is about 25-30 min walk (it was hot & we were tired!). Hotel is smallish and dated but no complaints. Nice continental breakfast too, which set us up for the day.
