We stayed in Best Western Hotel Bologna for a week in early June and found the hotel very conveniently situated. The hotel is opposite the Mestre railway station and only 10 minutes from Venice. It was also easy to get to the hotel from the airport.

The room was very nice with wooden floors, enough space and a roomy bathroom. It was also very quiet in the room. The staff was friendly and helpful and the free internet in the lobby was a bonus. We also liked the tea/coffee making possibility in the rooms.

The hotel website promised GLUTEN FREE options at breakfast and I even contacted the hotel to make sure they had gluten free bread but the breakfast turned out to be a disappointment. They only had individually packed sweet cakes. Luckily I had some of my own bread with me and found some more from Venice. But if you want gluten free breakfast, you might just as well try some other hotel. I have had gluten free bread in Tuscany and Rome so some hotels do make an effort.

We caught the local bus from the airport to the hotel. We were more than surprised with the location and quality of the hotel. The room was spacious and comfotable, we walked across the street onto platform 1 and every train took us the 8 minute ( 1.20 Euro) trip to Venice. The station in Venice leads you directly onto the Grande Canal. Stayed in Venive until 9.00 PM each night for dinner and then a quick train ride home.

a really charming surprise this hotel, rooms are extremely spacious for Italian standards, the hotel is clean and tastefully decorated, the breakfast is ok, it is located close to the train station; a little bit too far from Venice

We stayed in the Best Western Bologna for three nights while touring Venice. The hotel was clean and the bathroom was large. The staff was quite helpful and we could park the car for 10 euros per day.

However, if we had to do it again we would have found a way to ditch the car and stay in Venice itself. The hotel is very convenient to both the train and bus into Venice, but the bus ride was extremely crowded and it took two buses before there was room for us to board. Even though the bus ride itself is only 15 or so minutes, it took us almost an hour to get to Venice. The train is a little better, but still I wish we had stayed in the city itself.

Regarding the hotel, the first two nights were quiet but the third night there was heavy motor traffic and soccer game celebrations outside that kept us up at night. The rooms were okay, but the immediate neighborhood isn't very pleasant.

Unless you go to Venice quite a bit I think it's worth it to pay more for a hotel right in the city. Venice is magical after dark and we would have enjoyed more of that magic had we been in the middle of it. But the Best Western is a more affordable alternative and is very convenient to public transportation to Venice by train or by bus.
