The vibe is really good at the hostel. Also the staff was really courteous and friendly. There was some glitch on the website due to which there was a confusion regarding our bookings. To compensate that, they gave us free drinks. Such a gestures is really appreciated.

From the Central Station (Stazione Mestre):

Turn right onto Viale Stazione and follow the road that makes a slight left-turn. Turn right onto Via Cà Marcello and follow the road until you see the a&o on your left.

By plane – travel by bus or train to the hotel:

From Aeroporto Marco Polo di Venezia (VCE) – incl. EasyJet, Lufthansa, KLM, Air France, Iberia, Swiss, Alitalia:

Line 15 direction Univ_me starts from Tessera Centro (300m walk from the airport) and takes you to the station "Vempa 1 Urbano" (21 stops) in 20 minutes. From there it is only 260m to the hotel. Continue on the St. Ronchi and turn left

Line 10a towards Venezia Piazzale Roma starts at Tessera (400m walk from the airport). Get off in Mestre Rampa Vempa 19 minutes later and walk 280 meters to the hotel.

Line 25a towards Venezia P. Roma starts also from Tessera and goes to Stazione FS (train station Mestre). From there you can walk 5 minutes to the hotel (see on foot). A trip costs 8 EUR.

You can also take the ATVO shuttle bus (costs 8 EUR as well) that can even be booked in advance here.

From Aeroporto di Treviso (TSF) – incl. Ryanair, Wizz Air, Albawings:

From the airport there are numerous possibilities to get to the AO Hotel Venezia Mestre. One of the easiest routes is this:

Walk 50m to Treviso Canova Aeroporto stop and take the bus 351 direction Venezia Piazzale Roma. It takes you to the Stazione FS (only 2 stops - exactly at Mestre station), depending on traffic. From there, walk 550 meters to the hotel (see - on foot).

Click on this link and enter your starting address. Google Maps' route planner navigates you conveniently to our a&o.

From the hotel to the island's old town:
By train:

a&o Venice Mestre is a 3-minute walk from Venezia Mestre Train Station. From there, non-stop train connections from Trenitalia take you to Venice Island. They depart every 5-minutes and stop at Santa Lucia station. This 10-minute ride costs 1.25 EUR.

By bus:

Buses run every 15 minutes from "Mestre Stazione" station to Venezia Tronchetto station. A simple bus ride takes 12 minutes and is also quite affordable (only 1,50 EUR). They also depart super close to our hotel. Please ask our hotel staff.

Take the "People Mover" (cable car) from Tronchetto to Piazzale Roma - the trip lasts only 4 minutes but saves you some walking (currently 1.50 EUR, weekly 7am-11pm, every 7 minutes).

We advise our cost-conscious guests to avoid the water taxi "Motoscafi". From Venice's old town you can buy hourly or day tickets for the water bus "Vaporetto". Also a cheap but a little less romantic alternative to the famous gondola ride.
