While I wouldn't recommend Mestre over Venice for its "ambience" (or lack thereof), if you need a place to stay in transit, this hotel is a good choice. It's right across from the train station (and near the buses to the Venice airport). The breakfast and restaurant next door are both good.
Hotel is clean and welcoming, staff courteous and helpful. Easily accessible from Venice Airport by direct bus, also being opposite rail station there is regular service to Venice Island and also other Italian cities. Breakfast was plentiful with good choice.
Traveling by car is not easy when you try to go to Venice. As I couldn't stay in the center I decided to book this hotel which is very close by. The bus to go direct to city center is just around the corner and the bus returning drops you off right in front of this hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms all modern and well designed and clean. Really a great option for anyone traveling on a budget and needing parking! :-)
We picked this hotel with a location next to train station. Very nice hotel and would stay here again. Headed to Trieste Italy the next day. We had a late arrival and the staff were just great. Nice breakfast. Short hop to Venice from the hotel and will come back for longer next time.
"Fitted the bill to a T and was in a great position"
We would be happy to stay again, though next time will carry a kettle and some tea bags. Telly was all Italian but that was not an issue. Staff were all super. Everything was clean and work except the light outside our door so finding keyhole was tricky.
Northwest of Venice on the mainland, Mestre is often used by travelers as a base for exploring Venice and the Veneto. Piazza Ferretto, Mestre's pedestrian-friendly main square, includes cafes, shops, and the town's 12th-century watchtower. The Brenta Canal, famous for its elegant Palladian villas, empties into the lagoon next to Mestre and stretches to the historic university city of Padua.
