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.

... of canals and floating plazas. Sabrina took us on a tour, stopping at the bridge of sighs, Rialto bridge, San Marco Plaza before we took a gondola ride down the grand canal. Apart from not being issued with safety flotation devices, triggering my imagination into overdrive in the small crescent shaped boat, the gondola ride was an amazing experience, a definite tick on the bucket list. But two things to note the gondola driver did not sing and of course ...
... This is beginning to feel a bit like the book “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.”
We finally got into Venice, but we had an unexpectedly great time procrastinating first.
Starting at the beginning, the coffee and a snack was the first highlight worth writing about. We stopped at a trattoria that’s just about a 5 min walk from the house. The woman who owns the place lives upstairs, and the restaurant is basically her living ...
This sinking city has so much to offer,though I am directionally challenged and all the bridges look the same to me. Dinner was also nice; there was a small authentic restaurant just beside our place and the seafood risotto was delicious!
I can't feel my feet anymore, so an early bedtime will be super helpful after two days of travelling since leaving Vancouver!
On the morning of the 13th, we woke up bright and early for a day trip to Venice. Max took us to the train station in Udine and a short hour and a half later, we arrived at Venice's Santa Lucia train station. Walking out of that station and seeing all of Venice laid out before me is a memory I've had since a teen. Watching Milla see it for the first time in 2011 was a joy for me so I was excited to see the look on Sasha's face this time. I think it blew his mind! ...
... would have been quite cryptic.
- "Vaporetto" passes get you public transportation all over the Venice area (boat and bus).
- The "embarcadero" is the point of embarkment for boats.
- Lido station is Santa Maria Elisabetta station.
- The bus stops at every 500 meters. Which stop were we to take? None of the stops are named... - We asked for Malamocco town center to passengers who ...
