We were able to checked in early, which we appreciated; Hotel it's about 20-25 minutes from VCE airport, they have a free shuttle service which you have to booked 24h in advance, the driver was very kind and also waited for us for about 10 minutes, since we were waiting for our bags; I highly recommend to schedule your pick up, taxi can charge you about $45-$50 Euros and walking with bags from the train station could be complicated; hotel its well kept and rooms are good size; breakfast was very good; they have dinner options on site, like sandwiches, pizza etc. a little bit pricey.
If you want to save some money staying outside of the city this is a good option, train station (Quarto D' Andino) its about 10-15 minutes walking, this hotel is located in a residential area, we didn't want to walk late at night since you don't see anybody else around and had some fear. There are not taxi service in the area, they said it's because its a small city. transit time to Venice St. Lucia is 25 minutes, very easy to get there. After you buy your train ticket please don't forget to validate it before taking the train (There is a small machine next to the ticketing kiosk) use track #3...
Near the hotel there is a Super Market and some restaurants, we tried one of them, food was okay but service was bad. ** Don't expect good customer service in Italy, just few exceptions.
There was a blackout during my last night , lasted for about 40 minutes, according to them this never had happened before, they were trying to do their best to keep everybody calmed, after that the wifi didn't work until the next day.
In general I can come back to this place, or maybe to Crown Plaza, since this one has the train station just behind. less
