Great hotel. Excellent location. A little loud because of train station right behind it, but that is what makes it so perfect. Easy 25 minute train ride into city centre. Tickets are 3€30. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. Staff were pleasant and very helpful.

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Venice East-Quarto d'Altino
Great hotel out of town
Spent 3 nights at the Holiday Inn in Quarto d'Altono before moving for 2 nights to Venice proper. The hotel was great value for money and the rooms were terrific. We were in an Executive room, not sure if we were upgraded but the room was huge and exceptionally comfortable. The staff were great and answered any questions by email. We couldn't book the first night online so contacted the hotel directly and they got us a room no problem.
The hotel is half an hour by train from Venice and the train station is right outside the hotel. Noise from the trains is not an issue - the rooms are soundproofed. The reception desk will give you a train timetable when you check in and sell tickets (E2.05 one-way).
There's a restaurant in the hotel and a pizzeria about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. The town itself is extremely quiet, it seemed, over the weekend.
This was great value for money but I missed being able to just stop by to recharge the batteries before going out again in the evening. If this isn't an issue for you, then you can't do better in Venice.
Also, the hotel offered to arrange a taxi to collect us from the airport for E30. We declined and picked up a taxi at the airport ourselves which cost us E35.
Nicest Holiday Inn I have ever seen
Stayed there last night in Italy to facilitate early morning transport to Marco Polo Airport. This is a very new and comfortable inn immediately adjacent to the train station, about a 15-20 ride to Venice. Rates were less than half of anything available in Venice at the time. Room and bath was large, and rather upscale from US Holiday Inns I have visited. Back of hotel faces train track, front faces nice residential area. Noise not a problem. Ride to Marco Polo for five and luggage was 50 euro via large van cab arranged through front desk. One way fare to venice from machine at the small station was 2.05 E. Breakfast opens precisely as announced and not a second earlier for early departures, but there was a coffee maker in the room.
Don't doubt ... Is the perfect hotel to visit Venice
My wife and me found this hotel at Internet. I couldn´t believe how a hotel with a fantastic price can offer better service than a 5 star hotel.
Incredible staff, that cooperate in everything that we need.
Venice is 20 minutes in train, and 1 train every hour. Perfect connection
I´ll come back with my friend is Easter. We will go to Slovenia and its´perfect.
You really can't do better than this...
If we had not had to be at the airport at 5 AM, we would have never found or considered this hotel. Like most people visiting Venice, we wanted to stay near Piazza S. Marco - - and actually did stay at the lovely Locanda Acquavita for one night, but since there is no transportation other than a very expensive private taxi from Venice Central early in the mornings, we found this exquisite hotel.
Fabulous by European standards and amazing even by the US yardstick, we loved this hotel. They have a special rate that includes transfer to the airport (only aboaut 10 minutes from here at early morning times).
Our rate also included bathrobes, a heated towel bar, lovely lotions, a flat screen television and internet access in the room (for a flat price).
I'm sure it would be a drag to take the train in and out every day if you really want to be on the mainland, but it might be worth it. The rates are great and the rooms and the service make it tempting to stay here for your whole stay.
In addition to the gratis full on breakfast buffet in the morning, we had dinner at the hotel and thought the food was really good.
As you can see, we really loved this place.
They even had ice!
Beautiful rooms (Lots of extras), helpful staff, great location for transport and to get away from the tourist places. Breakfast is fantastic too!
Only ate one evening meal, yet this was high quality and the service was great.
Excellent Value for money, I would recommend this hotel to all.
Must stay Hotel for Venice
This hotel was a great surprise for us when we stayed here in June. Let me start out with the negative - It is situated slightly outside Venice. Now the positives - It is located next to train station so you can get in to venice in 30 minutes. If you can forgive this point, then the hotel is absolutely fantastic as the rooms are big and the bathrooms fantastic. You get a five star hotel facilities (no swimming pool) at One star hotel prices. We went during the summer vacation peak time and rates of hotels in venice were nothing less than 150 Euros. We got a great double bed room with breakfast for 72 euros. Must add the breakfast was the best we had during our whole european vacation. If you are conscious of what you spend and you dont mind the 30 min train journey I would definitely recommend you stay here...
Superb room, great bathroom, great service
From Treviso airport, we rented a car and drove to this hotel, which we found after about half an hour. Get a good map or ask for driving directions from the hotel before you go, because quarto d'altino is not on every map...
I booked this hotel for 2 nights with the reward nights from priority club; for business I use the ichotel group a lot and I decided to spend some earned points now for 2 adults and my 2 kids of 2y and 4y old.
Friendly and efficient check in. Free parking garage.
We got upgraded to an executive room (might have something to do that I have Priority Club Platinum status).
The room was spacious, very nice "contemporain", tastfull design, leather seats, nice lighting, modern LCD TV with some internet and movie features, a King sized bed and a sofa, which they turned in a sofa bed for the kids.
Bathroom more than complete and a spacious dressing area.
There is also a ethernet cable for your laptop at about 7 € for 24 hours.
We arrived late and while the kids where playing in the bath, we ordered a pizza and a bottle of wine, about 7 euros for the wine and 7 for the pizza.
The hotel is opposite the train station, but the rooms are not noisy at all and we had a good sleep.
Next day, we went for the breakfast buffet, which was a bit dissappointing if you compare with the overall standard of this hotel. Ok, but nothing fancy or to get excited about. I think if we weren't with the kids, I would choose to get some breakfast outside the hotel.
We headed for Venice, 2 minute walk from the hotel is the train station. Timetable available at the hotel reception. We couldn't figure out the ticket vending machine and decided to buy on the train, but we never saw the 'ticket man' in the train...
About 20-25 minutes later we arrived at Venice Ferrovia.
We spend a nice day in Venice (a bit challanging with a pushchair) and took the water taxi from the St Marco Plaza back to Ferrovia (€5 adult, kids free).
The ticket machines in the Ferrovia train station were easier to understand and a single to Quarto d'Altino is about € 2,50 , kids under 4 year free.
We had a nice lunch in Venice and decided to take dinner in the hotel.
Food was good, service very friendy. Even when our kids decided to 'discover' the lobby of the hotel, the staff was friendly and even gave them a big pluche parrot to play with.
Next day we headed for Croatia.
Overall a very good and a friendly service, top hotel and I will go back.
We spend in total about 116 euros for 2x breakfast, 1 full dinner with wine and the pizza and botle of wine.
Too bad I did not take specific pictures of the room that I can show you, but here 2 impressions.
Excellent choice for an international arrival at Venice
I recommend this hotel as an excellent place for an international traveller arriving in Venice - a great place to get some rest and find your feet before embarking on adventures in the city of Venice or the surrounding provinces of Italy. It's new, stylish, very reasonably priced (we paid €88) and right next to a railway station with regular trains in to Venice.
We arrived at Venice airport around 11pm after 24 hours of travel - an overnight flight from the USA to Heathrow, and a delayed BA connecting flight to Venice. Transport options from the airport were limited at that hour of the night and we ended up in a taxi. Upon arrival the fare meter read around €35 but the driver wanted over €50 quoting luggage and night fees. We settled on €40.
The hotel is out of the way in the small town of Quarto d'Altino, further out from Venice than the airport, but the quality of the hotel more than made up for the inconvenience. The staff were friendly, with excellent English. The room was stylishly furnished with a modern decor. Excellent bathroom. Very comfortable bed. The hotel has a bar and an upscale restaurant.
The next morning it was just 5 minutes walk through a tunnel under the tracks next to the hotel to the railway station, easily manageable with our luggage. The train took us into Venice and the vaporetto from there to our hotel near Piazza San Marco made the move into the city of Venice from Quarto d'Altino quite manageable - and much easier than it woudl have been to try to navigate our way there late the night before.
My wife and I stayed at this most elegant hotel for two days following a cruise. We wanted to be away from the touristy spots and this was the place to be. The staff was extremely helpful, and upgraded us to the best suite they had. The rooms were fantastic. There is a very nice resturant in the hotel, and we were within walking distance of the town, which had a nice weekend market going the weekend we were there. There is a little pizzeria called Stop Pizza just 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel staff arranged a taxi for us at 4:30 in the morning to get to the airport on time. The price they quoted us for the taxi was spot on. The staff even made us fresh coffee when we came down at 4:15 to wait on the taxi. Overall, I can't say enough good things about our stay at this hotel.
Holiday Inn, Venice East, Top Hotel
I don't usually take time out to write a review but this hotel and its staff certainly deserve it. Hotel is a minutes walk from the railway, which takes you to Venezia (touristy Venice) - 25 min train ride. Quiet and pleasant location which is very relaxing and welcome after all the hustle and bustle of the tourist travels.
We used the bus from the airport to Mestre railway station, then a train to the Holiday Inn, simple considering it was our first visit to Italy and inexpensive - compared to the taxi fares we were quoted.
The hotel is spotless and decor is contemporary. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, they went out of their way to make us feel at home. They explained the train system and the way around Venice from when you get there to using the numbered waterbuses to travel to see the most of Venice. Maps and train tickets are available at the hotel.
Our room was beuatifully decorated, and everything that is required was made readily available.
Usaully bathrooms take alot to be desired but i could take this bathroom home...
A fantastic holiday, an exceptional hotel and extremely friendly staff.

Our Time in Venice - A Short Blog
After leaving Parma, we drove to Venice. We spent three nights at a hotel just outside of Venice. Because we have a car, the parking fees in the city centre would have killed us (along with the hotel rates). But, our hotel was great and right beside the train station that took us into the city each day. < …
... But, we made light of this and, like the naughty school children she thought us to be, joked about her behind her back.
Despite her lack of friendliness, she still gave us a good tour with lots of great information. The tour itself was nice because, like our tour of the Colosseum, it gave us a behind the scenes look at the Palazzo Ducale and access to places no one else could enter, such as Casanova's prison cell. ...
... was sorting out Germany plans, so we found a cafe with free wifi and grabbed a coffee. After a bit of shopping and wandering through Old Town we had an amazing feast of calamari for lunch, then jumped back on the tenders out to the ship. After a quick lie down (we were all so tired all the time!) we wandered up to R Bar and discovered a delicious bottle of champagne, which we took up to dinner in the dining room. We were sitting in a different part of ...
... voluntarily in the water. And unlike the other girls on our raft, I spent most of my time pulling the boys back in! I'm sure we will both be sore in the morning, but I can evilly report (with some glee) that Mark hurts now an has been complaining for a good bit of the coach rode to Venice. We didn't so much else, we basically ate our lunch at the end of the rafting trip and hopped on the coach and drove ...
... and Sherry & I were happy when they returned! We decided to have dinner in the hotel and had the all-inclusive buffet. We came back to our room and toasted each other for a wonderful trip - having a little of the wine that Cristian gave us as we left this morning. It was his own "Antica Corte" wine☺ To bed for a very early wake ...
