-10 Minute walk to bus stop to take you into Venice
-10 Minute walk to train station
-Hour away from Verona
-A/C broke on first night at 3AM, gushing water was pouring out of the ceiling, was moved to another room straight away, however had no apology the next day / reception had no idea of incident
-Staff not welcoming and didn't provide the level of customer service I'd expect
-You could stand at reception for a good 10 minutes before even being acknowledged, if you wasn't to say something sooner.
-Found it rude that staff would answer the phone whilst you was having a conversation with them
Just returned from a wonderful 3 night stay at this beautiful villa, just outside Venice.The villa is of a classic Italian style and is very stylish, peaceful, beyond comfortable and Immaculately clean, The staff are attentive without being intrusive and the choice of breakfast was varied and delicious.
If you want a smart, quiet stay away from the hubbub of Venice, then this is the place for you. We cannot recommend the Villa Barbarich highly enough!
Stayed October 2015, traveled as a couple
Very nice hotel 15 minutes away from Venice by local bus (only 3 euros return). Tickets available from hotel reception. Shuttle service to airport and port for cruises (8 euros). View of Venice from some top floor rooms. Staff extremely helpful and good breakfast included.
We got into Venice early but Gianna who was at the front desk was kind enough to allow us to check in early. She even offered us coffee and pastries while we were waiting for our room. Giana was not only very nice but she is excellent in what she does. She gave tips on going around Venice and where to go, etc. The restaurant staff and breakfast staff was also excellent. And of course the food was delicious. We will certainly stay here again in our future trip to Venice. Excellent hotel.
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.
