Stayed here 3 nights after a tour of Croatia. Hotel is very disappointing. I can understand why people choose to stay here as it is relatively inexpensive compared to hotels in the heart of Venice. However, the hotel is in the middle of a semi-industrial area, and it takes a good 30 to 45 minutes by public transport to get to Venice proper.
There is an excellent shopping centre about 10 minutes away by foot. Check out the supermarket and the locals going about their business.
The rooms are very roomy and quiet. Breakfast buffet was not up to standard, very limited choices, hot food was cold and I was shocked at how badly the bacon was cooked, something the Italians usually do well.
Dinner and drinks in the restaurant were very well priced and the pasta I had was cooked well. However, the dining room is not open for lunch, nor can one get a drink until the restaurant opens at night.
Some of the reception staff were on the unfriendly side, but overall most of the staff were approachable and helpful. less
HMQuidVenice, Direttore at BEST WESTERN PLUS Quid Hotel Venice Airport, responded to this review
we are sorry you consider our location “in the middle of nowhere”, even if it isn’t. The hotel is located in the new AEV Terraglio Area, near the highway exits Castellana and Terraglio. This area is completely new and feature modern, urban design architecture.
Considering we care about our customers and we don’t want to cheat them, the information that the BW Plus Quid Hotel Venice Airport is not in Venice island, but it is in Venice-Mestre is available everywhere on line.
Furthermore, most of the people who took the same organized tour you made in Croatia affirm that we are the best hotel where they stayed at, and we are proud of this.
Concerning the restaurant, during your stay – Thursday, 22nd and Friday, 23rd – it was open, so we don’t understand why you affirm the contrary. Our Mover Drink & Food Restaurant closes only on Saturdays and Sundays for lunch.
Anyway, we are happy to know that you appreciated the pasta prepared by our chef and the drinks made by our bartender.
We hope to see you once more.
