ABOVE: In this satellite photo of the Viale
Stazione in Mestre, you can see three hotels directly opposite the station:
The Best Western Hotel Bologna, the Hotel Plaza, and the Hotel Tritone. Cross
the street from your hotel, and a train will get you to Venice in 10-12 minutes.
The following three hotels are great choices if you plan to use
Mestre as a base for excursions into Venice. All three are directly across the
street from the Mestre Railroad
Station, which is served by the
ATVO Fly Bus from Marco Polo
trains to Venice depart frequently and take only 10 to 12 minutes to reach the
city center. If you're headed for the Marittima or San Basilio cruise
terminals, you can hire a taxi for about €30.
Don't let the four-star rankings of these hotels put you
off if you're on a budget: Rates are quite reasonable, especially by Venice
The Plaza is modern, with 210 guest rooms. All rooms have free Wi-Fi, parking is

Other hotels in Mestre
If you're primarily interested in using Mestre as a base for
travel to Venice, your best bet is a hotel directly across from the
Mestre Railroad Station. See "our top
recommendations" above or consider the three-star
Trieste, which also are close to the
a hotel near a city bus route to Venice's Piazzale Roma or the Mestre train station may be worth considering. Examples include
Vivit (inset photo) and
Venezia in Mestre's historic center, or the tour- and business-oriented
Delfino on the busy, modern Corso del Popolo.
Staying at a hotel near the Autostrada, or
on the outskirts of Mestre toward Marco Polo Airport, makes sense only if
you're looking for a place to spend your last night before driving to
the airport and dropping off your rental car. Examples of such hotels
Titian Inn Hotel & Residence, the
Antony, and the
Courtyard by Marriott Venice Airport.
For other hotel possibilities on the Venetian mainland, see the listings at
Booking.com: Mestre. Note that some of the hotels are in
a suburb on the other side of the railroad tracks from Mestre.
(The residential areas of Marghera are pleasant and quiet, but downtown
Mestre has more to offer visitors.)
