Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tritone Mestre
Highly Recommended for a visit to Venice
My family and I stayed here for 3 days. The hotel is right across the street from the Train Station with very frequent trains going to Venice Sta. Lucia Station. If you prefer the bus (bus and vaporetto service are both valid when you buy a pass), it goes from the Train Station right to Piazale Roma which is a also a stop on the vaporetto service in Venice. Train or bus...just a few minutes to the canals of Venice! The hotel is very comfortable with excellent air conditioning. Breakfast was first rate. Great helpful and friendly staff. If you need a car rental, Europcar is right around the corner.
The hotel is conveniently located right across the train station. It is also extremely near to the bus-stop where you can take buses to the airport. There are a couple of eateries 2-5min away from the hotel and the food is much cheaper than that in Venice.
The standard room we had was spacious (compared to 3-4* hotels we stayed in Rome and Paris). The room was clean and very nicely furnished, with a nice bathroom (no bathtub though).
The breakfast spread was pretty good, with 4-5 different types of bread, ham, cheese, nuttella, and some pastries served in a nice room. A nice alfresco seating area is also available for smokers.
Service was excellent - both the reception and breakfast room staff were friendly and helpful.
I would definitely stay here again if I were to visit Venice again. While many people say it is inconvenient to stay in Mestre, I think that's not an issue for us. The train to Venice took only 10min and it arrives at regular intervals. The last train from Venice is at around 11pm, after which you can still catch buses from Piazzale Roma.
The room cost is much cheaper than hotels in Venice and I'm pretty sure the rooms are much bigger here. It is also more convenient to travel to and from the airport from Mestre, as you won't have to struggle with luggage over bridges and on the vaporetti.
Nice, clean hotel - Everything we needed.
The hotel was slightly out of way from Venice. It is not right in the centre - You have to take a short bus trip to get there which may not be ideal for some but we found that it was all a part of the adventure! This hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast was nothing to rave about - Just your standard European buffet. Very simple but everything we needed. The lovely cats lounging outside the restaurant windows were a homely touch (they are the hotels resident cats but they do not come inside of course).
Nice hotel! Across from train station - very good location!
We stayed at this hotel because Venice hotels were too expensive. Very conveniently located across from the train station to the right.
The tobacco shop next to the hotel sells the bus tickets you need to buy to take you into Venice. You will want to buy the bus and water bus pass. It is a quick 10 minute ride on the bus.
We were very impressed with the room and bathroom. Very nicely decorated. Breakfast was great. They offer a pretty good variety of foods.
Just a bridge and a train ride and a world away from Venice
We found ourselves in this very average hotel, after our Tour company switched us from a very attractive hotel on the Venice Lido. Be advised that you must take a bus or train to the Venice Statione, and then get a boat to the city center. The neighborhood is train station drab, with nothing to visit and few restaurants. The hotel itself is European functional, with air-conditioned rooms, and clean facilities. The thermostat was impossible to regulate, so we slept with lots of blankets. Breakfast was okay, dinner was forgettable. I would never pick this hotel again if we return to Venice.
Tritone is a hit !
September 2004. Very conveniently placed for train and bus services.
The staff at the hotel were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble, what they didn't know they found out for us. Room was very clean, towels changed daily. Good continental breakfast. Would definitely stay there again.
Nice rooms....terrible staff
My wife stayed here one night. It was our final night in Italy and we moved here from Venice because the bus across the street took us directly to the airport. The hotel itself was good. Rooms were clean and comfortable. However, the staff left a lot to be desired. We ordered the "24 hour" pay per view package that the hotel offered. We were suppose to get 24 hours of movies and internet access for about $25 (U.S.) However, the service to our room went out about midnight. I called the front desk and told them what happen but they had no clue what was going on. I got dressed and went down the the front desk and was told that they didn't know what to do. They said come back in the morning and it would be taken care of at check-out. I was told it would be no problem getting reimbursed for our interupted service. However, that was not the fact. The young girl who checked us out, along with the manager we spoke to, told us nothing could be done there. We would have to wait until we got back to the states and email "other management" with the problem. Yeah right. I tried that and got no response. The staff REALLY seemed like they had no clue when it came to problems. Hopefully, those inadequate staff members have been replaced.
Great hotel. Very quiet room. Very nicely decorated. Good breakfast buffet. Very friendly staff, speak great English. Very nice. Bus to Venice stops in front of the hotel, and the ride takes less than 15 minutes. A one way ticket costs €1 (buy it in the bar to the left of the hotel), but you really should buy a Venice Card (reserve in advance via Internet), which includes the bus (and water bus). Hotel doesn't have own parking space. Park your car in the parking garage directly to the east of the hotel (garage "Stazione"), €6 per night.
Very nicely trimmed 4*
This hotel was excellent. Clean, accessable and the reception staff were very helpful. The breakfast was simple but nice. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The bus and train stations are just across the road. It is worth paying a little less to stay here instead of paying to stay in a central location as the transport into Venice is simple from here. Quality all the way. A class!
I had a very bad experience with Hotel Tritone in Mestre- Venice. They had my credit card details in their secure server for hotel reservation and after a lot of argument from the hotel management in email they refused the reservation. What is the use of the secure server if I have to send my CC details once more by fax or mail as requested later in email.

... many twisty streets. I could not follow the hotel’s map, because the street and canal names were too small. I tried to follow it, but I just started to see the signs pointing in the direction we wanted to go. Sometimes I made a guess and hoped it would be right. I have a good sense of direction, so I was never too far off of the path. Most times, another sign would appear and we would make a correction.

... work on one piece for months in order to complete it. After shopping around Burano and taking time to enjoy the many brightly colored houses along the water’s edge, we caught a boat back to the main islands of Venice. The older French couple sitting next to us was a malodorous reminder that many Europeans don’t share America’s hygiene habits. Once off the boat, we got a little turned around, but ...
... the next train to Venice. Again, public transportation is easy and cheap and we are fairly good at getting around, figuring out the schedules & validating our tickets. It's a good thing because the Italians, at times, are not nearly as helpful as the Irish, to put it nicely. ;~)
We arrived in Venice, stepped off the train, out the front walkway and... WOW!! Venice is unique and mesmerizing. It was also raining - a lot. ...
... 4 of you and you know how long it will take you to get to your destination. €8.70 fixed rate from departure, then €1.30 for each 60 second thereafter. That's not all, each bag over 50cm (20in) long costs €1.50 PLUS a supplement for services between 10pm to 7am of €5.50 and if that's not enough, there's a surcharge of €5.90 if its a holiday. No, I'm not finished yet. These are for 4 people only, add ...
... were very nice but OMG they had a lot to say!) and worked our way through the meal. The ship has an interesting categorisation system for food – you can choose an appetiser, then a salad or soup, then an entrée, then dessert – the entrée is the equivalent of the main meal. The food was ok but nothing to write home about – we are starting to think the Italian family has ruined our tolerance for average food. We ...
