I visit hotels quite often, This breakfast was a carnival to the eyes and tasty too! Friendly stuff. Beautiful child buffet! Gives me idea for a birthday party to my child :) Thank you! You can see for yourself from the photos.
"Wonderful stay at the Laguna"
The NH Laguna hotel was a super place to stay for 3x nights whilst visiting Venice and I would highly recommend. Must admit, I was a little nervous about how far it was "out" of Venice, but as long as you don't mind a short walk and bus ride into Venice itself, it really is a great place to stay. For accessibility, the hotel is around a 15/20min taxi journey (traffic depending) from Marco Polo, but this will set you back around €35 euros... instead, I would recommend paying €8 and jumping on the ACTV bus (tickets available in airport on exit) to Mestre FS (railway station) (about 25/30mins with a few stops en route) and the hotel is approx a 15min walk from the station. A return ticket to the airport will cost you €15. Boom! (Tickets for the return leg back to the airport can also be bought from the ACTV office at the station where you are dropped off). NOTE: The ACTV bus actually gets very close to the NHL on the way to the station - so if you are feeling brave, have a word with the driver and ask if they can stop for you (there is a stop but unsure of the name) - will save you the walk! For getting into Venice itself, if you come out of the hotel entrance and turn left - walk 50m down road and then turn right (T-Junction with lights) and then go about 850m to a roundabout, do another right and about 20/30m onwards, you will be conveniently at the bus stops on the Corso del Popolo (about a 12min walk). Tickets can be bought from the Hotel Ambasciatori for €3 return into Venice, just make sure you go from the bus stop on the opposite side of the road to the Hotel Delfino to go "IN" to Venice. The bus into Venice takes about 10/15mins (tops) even in rush hour! (It would seem Italian bus drivers have "heavy right-feet"!) And drops you off at the Piazzale Roma which is basically the transport hub for getting around Venice. With respect to the NH Laguna hotel itself, we had a very pleasant stay indeed. It's a bit more 'mainstream' / modern (much like a Jury's Inn) and looks to be popular for business / conferences and such like, but was more than suitable for leisure stays as well. When my other half and I turned up on Saturday lunchtime, it felt like we were the only ones there! The staff were very accommodating and spoke very good English (and applauded our Italian efforts!) and we found the hotel to be very quiet and comfortable. Word to the wise, check-in is not available until 15:00, so depending on your arrival, you can either leave your bags in the luggage room and head into Venice, or chill out in the hotel bar where prices are extremely reasonable and the food is excellent! (I had the burger and it was huge!) We stayed on the third floor in a standard plus room (I think) which had a lovely big bathroom, a single bed tucked away around a corner with an internal sliding door (suitable for a 3/person family) and a queen size bed (2 singles pushed together - although with the bedding you would never know!). For breakfast, there was a really good selection of European delicacies - cereals, fruits, toast / jams, croissants, cakes, hams / cheeses etc and on the 'fried' side; scrambled egg, bacon and sausage were available. In addition, there was also the opportunity for 'made to order' omelettes! Yum! Would recommend going early than later though (midweek is 07:00-10:00 > we tried both ends of spectrum!) and there is a lot more choice going early. Overall, we had a really lovely stay at this hotel and we would definitely recommend to others. I would certainly be prepared to stay here again. Thank you to all the staff at the NH Laguna for making our trip one to remember! #1 Travellers Tip! When walking to the bus stops on the Corso Del Popolo, there is also a Maccy D's and a Spar shop on the roundabout and great for getting lunch items! Bottle of Coke only €0.99 here... in Venice itself, €2.50 and beyond! #2 Travellers Tip! You can also use the bus stop on the Corso Del Popolo (going away from Venice) to catch the No:15 bus back to Marco Polo which (we think) would only cost you €1.50 and takes about 25/30mins with stops / traffic. You could also try getting this bus from the airport the other way when you arrive, but as it is cheap, it is also very popular with locals! #3 Travellers Tip! Note, at the Hotel Ambasciatori, you can also buy a "bus and boat" ticket for €20 which will buy you an all day travel card to use on the boats, plus you get the bus for free!
Me and my girlfriend stayed here on our trip away for the weekend after Valentine's Day and it was even better than what we expected. Everything was perfect! The room was spot on with a lovely view of the marina and breakfast was well presented and tasted great. We used the restaurant and bar there a lot as well, the food was delicious and there was a good selection of drinks. The service there was also great, a big thankyou to Mustafa as well who was really polite and friendly, he is a really great waiter and made our stay here even better. Thankyou for a great weekend!
"Wow... Simply Amazing!"
I spent a long time before booking this hotel reading mixed reviews, some good and some bad. It's safe to say that this is one of, if not, the best hotel we have ever stayed in. We upgraded our room to a suite for a small price and it was well worth it. The room itself was beautiful, modern and very clean. We had a view of the marina, unfortunately the fountain wasn't on as we visited at a less touristy time of the year. The hotel is situated in Mestre, you can walk for 10 minutes in to town to catch the 4/4L bus in to Venice. Not sure how Italian buses work but they never charged us for some reason, and none of the drivers really spoke English so we got around for free. Try to avoid Taxis as much as possible as they charge extortionate amounts! There is a beautiful restaruant down the road of the hotel and some high quality ones in Mestre itself (La Dino was our favourite). The staff were polite and helpful, they advised us where to go to get a bus to Venice as well as some of the local places to eat. Be warned that the white mints on the front desk aren't white mints they are in fact cherry flavoured. :) We ate at the restaurant in the hotel on the first night, we were amazed with the quality of the food. It wasn't overly expensive so we weren't expecting such good quality. I highly recommend the swordfish. Overall, I would suggest this hotel to anyone looking to visit Venice as it's great to view a more local and less tourist orientated area. The price of this hotel is fantastic for the quality you get and it's well situated.
its nice to spend week end but the parking you have to pay for it and there is a good restaurant close to the hotel and pizza it so good over thereabout its hot inside the hotel the room in general accepted but will be better if they put some carpet in it bath rooms need some over hold and the bill boy is not available in check or check out
