Useful Hotel Within a Bus Ride to Venice
Posted May 9, 2014
This was a well placed hotel in the Mestre district, around 15-20 minutes' bus ride from Venice. The staff were very friendly. The airport buses stop nearby and the buses to Venice stop a block or two away. You can obtain a map of these from the hotel staff. I went as a single traveller and the room I was allocated (room 100) was next to the lift on the ground floor (and I think was for a disabled person), so this was noisy when people used it and talked outside the door. Also the kitchen sounds could be heard in the morning. The room contained a 'fridge which would also go on and off in the night. There was a bottle of water inside which, I learned from the staff, was chargeable but there had been no other information to tell me this. The staff advised that all rooms had a 'fridge but they were telling guests that they did not work and all things to be chilled should be kept in the bar. I asked twice for extra clothes hangers as, staying for 8 nights, there were not enough. I did not receive them. The breakfast is a reasonable continental buffet, but the coffee is, at best, lukewarm. The rooms are air conditioned but this did not work some of the time. The bed was comfortable.
