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.

... as we walked a long way to see the Arena where operas are performed. They were currently setting up for the opera Aida. The Arena setting looked like a rustic type of colosseum. Very different and unique. Then we walked on further up & down lanes to where Juliette Capulet lived. Yes, we saw the actual balcony it is alleged she stood on back in history where she called out for Romeo Montague. I was hoping it would not be just an ordinary small balcony like many in the area. ...
... of telling the world that they were there. I don’t think it bothers me. Each to their own. Do what you please. I just think that these people forget to take in the beauty and grandeur of these amazing structures and do themselves a disservice after making such a big effort to get there. I’m of the opinion that taking a moment to stop and etch these buildings in your memory instead of hastily taking as many photos is a much more enriching experience. To look ...
Venice.... Where do I begin? I've heard rather mixed reviews, however, we absolutely adored it! Number one... It's so beautiful, everywhere you look leads to a new and intriguing street running alongside winding canals that seem to never end. Rachel is definitely chief navigator of this trip. I like to think that i could be chief navigator if i tried, however, i'm not so sure, but i like to think I bring other qualities ...
... so fresh and yummy and in the perfect location!! We then caught the water bus over to the Murano island which is famous for the glass. Watched a little demo of the glass blowing and then walked around the island. A lot of the glass over here in my opinion is pretty tacky looking! Some is nice but I think the glass which I have seen back home is a bit more aligned to ...

Risotto: Because of my allergy to shrimp (which seems to be in a lot of dishes), the main pot was a shrimp risotto and I made a smaller pot of porcini mushroom risotto. It is incredibly easy but very time consuming. You stir the pot of rice almost constantly for the entire 40 minutes or so that it took. The secret is in the big pot of vegetable and fish broth that had been simmering on the back of the stove ...
