"Central Miestre, but easy access to Venice"
The hotel has good rooms, but the bar is fairly basic and service can be slow. The Breakfast was reasonable. The main advantage is the hotel is a short bus journey to the main ferry terminus to Venice and takes about 15 minutes If you are staying any length of time, but the 48 hr transport pass
"Better than we thought on arrival"
After arriving from the train station we were a little apprehensive walking to the hotel. However, the location of the hotel was brilliant to get into Venice especially if you buy the 20E combined bus water bus ticket from Reception which gives you access all day and can take you as far as Murano etc. The room was ok, bathroom small but the barman was friendly and the hotel had a nice atmosphere. We walked into Mestre Centre and found it was such a nice place itself with a market and restaurants etc. Found a lovely restaurant just round the corner 'Da Carla' where the food and the welcome was excellent Would definitely stay again if I visited Venice
"Great location for transport links, Disappointed by breakfast, room and staff"
We visited during October and stayed three nights with a young child. We expected a room with a bed for our child but got a sofa, no bedding, no explanation and no apology or solution. The last time I checked a sofa and a bed are two different things, considering we paid a significant extra sum for three of us to sleep in beds, and only got two I'm one unhappy customer. The only bed provided had no cover on the duvet during our stay. The bed was so hard that we both woke repeatedly each night in pain. Breakfast was bacon, scrambled eggs, fruit, a selection of either plain, marmalade or chocolate croissants or cake. The quality of the bacon was such that 90% of it was pure fat; fine if you like that kind of thing. We don't. I was so looking forward to a cooked breakfast but had none. No pancakes or cooking of eggs to order. I appreciate that we all have our good and bad days. Every time I approached the reception desk I was made to feel like I was second to someone waiting in line behind me or to a website, when I hadn't even been served, the staff were, every time, rude, short tempered and uncooperative. We were given completely incorrect bus route information by the hotel staff ahead of our arrival which cost us unused tickets and stress at the airport on arrival during the night. The bus recommended to us didn't exist. No one at the bus station had ever heard of it. I like the location but would look at others nearby if returning.
"Ideal location for visiting Venice"
This hotel is located just 10 mins walk from the train station and the buis direct to Venice stops right outide. Tickets for the bius can be bouight from the hotel reception and are only €3 each return. The room that we had was on the 4th florr and although it was clean it was a bit dated but did fine for the two nights that we were there. The only fault that I can find really about the hotel is the male member of staff at check in. He was very grumpy, not particularly helpful, giving only very vague information and only gave us directions to our room after I asked! I gave him the benefit of the doubt but he was the same the following morning. Not what you want when you check in or ask for advice / help. Him aside its a basic hotel in a good location and worth a stay for a short duration. Breakfast was okay at best though.
"Value for money hotel"
10 mins walk from Mestre train/bus station. Bus 4L opposite hotel takes 15 mins to Piazza Roma from where you can get a water taxi into central Venice. Buy bus tickets at any tobacconist (one close to hotel). Hotel in safe environment close to supermarkets. Room clean with comfortable bed. Ours on 3rd floor, rear of hotel and so quiet. Wifi 3€ a day, as no longer on facebook. Good signal and so able to use iPads. We were happy with breakfast, cereals, breads, cheese, fruit, yoghurts, etc. 'Fridge in room, useful for storing milk as we took a travel kettle and adapter (UK to Italian). All in all happy with location and hotel.
