We travelled for our honeymoon to Venice and stayed at ariston in mestre. The hotel rooms are outright bad. They don't have queen size or French beds. They join two single beds to make it one. The staff was very helpful in the beginning. They explained us well how to get around. However at the time of our exit, we were asked to pay up 7.2euro as some tourist tax. Our trip was completely prepaid for and we were only suppose to pay to any extras such as minibar. My tripped was prepared by GTA London and they had confirmed that we needn't pay anything as it was prepaid. However, they staff at the frontdesk refused to listen to the explanation and scolded us, passed racist comments such as "why do u people always behave like this" with particular reference to my nationality which I could easily make out. While saying this he was also shivering with anger and seemed ready to knock me down. I was shocked by such behaviour and decided to pay up and leave quickly. My local travel agency has agreed to issue a refund for the tax amount. I strongly recommend other options. If you know only English language and no other European languages esp Italian, it could be difficult and tiring to get around in mestre. Paris and Switzerland are very friendly in that context. I think booking a hotel room well in advance and on the main Venice island is a much better idea.
