I have just stayed there for 3 nights and I loved the place. The evening staff (the 2 girls I met) was extremely friendly. One of them even offered to print my tickets for me. The hotel is immaculate.
The only downside is the travel time. It takes about 50 minutes on average to travel each way. For the benefit of future tourists, I thought I should write this review before I forget the routes and other useful information.
If you are taking a train to Venice, there is an tourist information booth on platform number 1 in the Venezia S. Lucia station, where you could get a map and a guide for 2.50 euros. There is also a information booth immediately to your left as you leave the train station. It is more commercial than the one in the station, as they sell tickets and help to book hotel reservations, if need be.
As you exit the train station, turn right and walk straight until you cross over a bridge. At the end of the bridge, there is a ticket hut, from where you can purchase tickets. A return ticket costs 5.20 euros, 2.60 euro one-way. It could be less. On my last day there, the ticket agent asked me if I wanted to travel to the Mirano's last stop or the Mirano stop by the hospital, which is the stop that you want. You would then go to the bus number 7 bay , but take the bus with the name Mirano (pronounced as me-rano NOT mur-rano, the island; there was a lot of confusion there!) on top. The hotel will be on your right hand side when you exit.
On your way back to Venice, cross the street and there should be a stop on your right. You would want to take the Veneza bus, and remember to flag it when it comes, as it is a stop for the SCORZE bus as well. One Veneza bus just went by me as I was standing waiting for it to pick me up!
Overall, I'd say it was money well spent, provided you plan on staying longer than 2-3 days. The travel time can eat up a chunk of your touring time.
