What a good find. It is not in Venice itself but about a 15 min bus ride away in a mainly residential area. The buses come regularly. One tip - make sure you know which bus stop it is on the homeward journey - we overshot the frist time and ended up stumbling around for ages at night - completely lost. The room rate is significantly lower than comparable Venetian hotels. Our room was big, comfortable and spotlessly clean. It overlooked the lively piazza which was full of local families every evening. Be aware that there is no lift but the staff carried our bags up for us. The staff are very helpful, speak good English and helped us with all sorts of directions, bus tickets and advice. Breakfast and free lobby internet was included in our room rate. The breakfast was delicious with lots of cold choices although not much hot food - eggs and toast only. There is a nice reading room and a quiet bar for a relaxing night-cap after a full day sightseeing. I would definitely return here again if I'm ever lucky enough to revisit Venice.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the square on the first floor.

The hotel is perfectly located right at the top of Piazza Ferretto in Mestre, the Venice suburb on the land side of the lagoon. It has a couple of parking spots in the back of the hotel, although it is tricky to access it with the car as it is a pedestrian area and very crowded at night. Some people may give bad looks as they do not know the hotel has parking spots available. Alternatively, it has another parking 5 minutes walk away but you will need to get the key from the reception desk.

The rooms are not huge but comfortable enough. Unlike other hotels in the area, the rooms have been refurbished with wooden floors which makes them clean pretty clean. Even if the bathroom is small, it has all that is needed and perhaps even more: a good sized sink, a shower, a toilet bowl, a bidet and a built-in blow dryer. There also is a minibar next to the bed and mind you, it is very silent and you won't hear it at night. Rooms also have free wireless internet connection. The only downsides are the next-door cathedral that has its bells ringing loudly at 7:00 AM every morning and the ancient TV in the room with only a very few channels.

The hotel has a large breakfast buffet. I mean, large for Italian standards. They have pastries, bread with maremelade, cereals, ham and fresh fruits. Do however not use the coffee machine in the main room, it is rubbish! Instead, ask the waitress to make you a proper Italian coffee with the machine they have at the bar. If you are in Italy, you have to do it the Italian way, right? ;-)

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view on the back, they are much quieter as they won't face the terraces of the nearby restaurants and cafes.

Great location within an easy bus ride to venice, free parking just off site and a warm friendly welcome. The staff were fantastic, superb in their offering directions, giving us a map and marking it with our outward journey and return journey, the manger of the hotel even offered to park our car because he was going that way! The lovely lady on the front desk took our passports but forgot to truth them the next day, we had to leave early because of our driving schedule and left without our passports!.......we rang while driving and were 3 hours away......she apologised so much and took the address of our next hotel and said she would post them that day. They turned up at the next hotel as promised. Wonderful service, great value and ready location.

Really enjoyed our stay at Al Vivit. Great to return from the very busy lanes of Venice to the local square in Mestre. The hotel is comfortable, the breakfast excellent but what really makes it are the staff. Both the reception staff were extremely friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. The restaurant staff for breakfast extremely friendly which gave the hotel a lovely vibe. If we returned to Venice we would stay here again and really can't give a better recommendation than that.
