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.

... In fact your lucky to get service at all.
In the afternoon I really need to sit down, as it was hot and I had been walking for hours. So I stopped at these tables. It was a table for 2. And just in front of me there was another table for 2.
I sat down thinking it might be associated to the ice cream shop, but no! The girl quickly told me this with a little attitude on the side. so she left and a little while later she asked if I was ready ...
... of Venice to the Rialto Bridge. This is a large bridge which goes over the Grand Canal. This ornate bridge opened in 1591. We decided to take a gondola ride. It was a little spur of the moment, but we all had a good time. In the morning we have to disembark the cruise ship. We will get to spend the day in Venice tomorrow before we have to fly home on ...
... 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. ...
... everything came around - while Josh went to get cash.
Unfortunately, Wells Fargo didn't approve Josh's card for use in Italy (even though he double checked that they had before we left) and we couldn't get any money out. Luckily, my card did work and I was able to withdraw enough to buy our water bus tickets and get us to the hotel where we could call the bank. They approved his card, but we've still only found a couple atms that will accept it.
... a rental apartment, as is most cases, the owner does not live on site, and will show up at the agreed time to meet you. We did this, and at 15 minutes past 2, we found ourselves sitting on the steps of L'Imbarcadero, ringing the doorbell and waiting. Twenty minutes later, someone finally comes running up the steps, asking us what we are doing there! I think there must have been a confusion about ...
