Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Bologna Hotel - Mestre Station
We had a pleasant experience at this hotel. It was very clean and quiet. Hotel staff was very helpful and spoke english. The hotel is right by the train station and only a 10 minute train ride to Venice. If you are planning to stay here, ask the staff about a small resturant down the block....great food and wonderfully priced.
We have just returned from our trip around Italy and the Best Western Hotel Bologna was our second stop. It was, by far, the best place we encountered. Rooms were immaculate and spacious! The bathroom was very nice as well. Front desk staff were very helpful and the breakfast was fabulous. The location is great too, since you avoid the costly Venice hotels and can stay here. Venice is one train stop away and it is very comfortable travelling back and forth. It beats trying to get your luggage on to one of the water taxis in Venice. As well, this hotel had nearby supervised parking which was important to us since we had a rental car. All in all, this hotel provided the utmost of comfort needed for a 2 night stay.
Nice and Cheap
Great rooms, the best breakfast, helpful staff (One gave a recommendation for a restaurant, the best food I had the whole trip).
Location is good for the price, 1 train stop from the island, so nearly all trains stop there, its easy getting back and forth. I would stay there again if Venice itself wasnt such a tourist trap.
At first I was concerned about this hotel due to the lack of reviews on trip advisor. However I must say that this hotel is wonderful. Rooms are spacious and boast a very contemporary European styling. Bathroom was a showpeice with radio, tub and shower. Hotel is very environment concerned, lights/Air condition go out automatically if you are not in the room (your room key card must be in card slot to get the juice flowing in your room). I am not an environmentalist, but I appreciated the efforts the hotel made. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Dialup jacks were available in rooms, a paid internet station was at the front desk. Continental breakfast was WONDERFUL...wow, I've never had so much food. Stairs were available if you want to skip waiting on the 1 very small elevator. Staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money.
And a Great Breakfast!
We had a suite, sleeping 4, for about $200euros. Quiet, clean, comfortable, modern, and fancier than we expected! The breakfast was just amazing--juice, cereal, cold cuts, pastries, coffee, tea, fruit, etc. And it's just across from the train station: Venice is 10 minutes away.
Loved Hotel Bologna
We had great, modern, renovated rooms with wonderful baths, and the hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The location was wonderful for us, being right across from the train station that offers frequent 10-minute trips to Venice. It proved to be a better alternative for us than driving into Venice, parking and having to lug our bags into a water taxi or something. This was one of our favorite stays in Italy.

... Italy and I'm not overly impressed so far. I knew that Italy had a tough time since the global financial crisis but everything just looks so run down. Theres all the buildings and towns which look like they should be beautiful, but the paints peeling off and they look like they could just fall down. The crazy thing is there's people living in them too! Mestre seems the same it looks old and of ...
... no one touched it, which was tricky as people wanted to bend over to look more closely. At almost all the museums and churches there were no photo signs and there were 'guards' who spent the whole time sitting or standing and saying 'No photo' or 'No touch'. Not the most stimulating of jobs. Most seemed to be on their phones anyway.
We caught the ferry back across the Grand Canal to then start wandering back in the general direction of the station, eventually ...
... can leave on a 7:30 train for Rome for an additional cost of 14.00 € each. We can leave on a 8:00 am train for Venice for a cost of 49.00 € each. We opt for a coffee and go on our scheduled train and Marilyn and Kathy change to the 7:30 am train. We are on the high speed train from Naples to Venice, a 5 ½ hour journey. We need to change trains in Bologne. Thank goodness the train is late or we would have missed it. After getting off the train we are not ...
It has been amazing last week and a half, plenty of ups and a of course a few downs! I am currently sitting on a train heading from the beautiful Venice to the fashion capital, Milan. We have a short stop over in Milan, one night, then heading to Chamonix in the French alps to stay with a friend of mine from Perth who is now living there.......super excited for this little adventure! Skipping back a few days ...
... the church bell rang, then the clock tower bell rung ( two bronze male figures - one old and one young, hinged at the waist, which strike the hours on a bell with a hammer - see picture) and then the campanile bell rung. If you love bells, that's the place to be at noon.
After the museum, we bought a ticket to go to Murano and Buarano islands. To get to Burano, you have to go to Murano first via the 4.1 line, which left from in front of ...
