If you're planning a trip to Venice, I would advise you book a hotel in Venice itself. This basic hotel in Mestre/Maghera is situated quite far away from everything and there is not much in walking distance other than the "sexy shop" next door. Because of this you would see several sex workers loitering around the area, night and day. You can quite easily get a bus into Piazza De Roma from near the hotel, but after 9pm you'd need to get a different bus which can be quite confusing. The hotel itself is a bit odd. There is a reception entrance to the side of the building but to enter and exit your room you have to use an exterior staircase round the back (no lift). One member of staff spoke excellent english and the other hardly at all, however they were both very polite and helpful. The room itself was fine, had working aircon and decent sized bathroom with shower. My single bed had only one flat pillow, a sheet and a smelly blanket which clearly doesn't get washed. Aside from that it was fairly clean.
