Many opt to stay in Mestre instead of Venice when visiting the region, both for budget reasons and to explore areas less popular with tourists, like Mestre’s historic piazza. These 10 hotels and vacation rentals in Mestre are located within 20 minutes of Venice, the train station and the airport, so you don’t have to sacrifice convenience by staying outside of Venice.
This bright and sunny apartment is comfortably located just a 10-minute drive from the Venice Marco Polo Airport and a 10-minute walk to the Mestre-Venice train station. With such easy access to central Venice, 15 minutes by bus, it’s quite a steal at this price. Although this apartment is located near some great neighborhood restaurants, if sampling the local produce yourself is on your itinerary, this apartment does not feature a full kitchen, rather a kitchenette, so it lacks an oven.
Price: from 48 USD
Number of Guests: 4

Fabrizio’s open, spacious studio can host a group of up to four people. The newly renovated kitchen is the perfect place to try your hand at Venetian cooking; Fabrizio even provides some basic supplies in the fridge and an espresso machine to start your day. If you’re arriving by train, Fabrizio’s apartment is ideal as it is located only three minutes from the station. However, if you are driving or coming via a rideshare, you should note Fabrizio applies a late check-in fee if you arrive 30 minutes past check-in time.

If you don’t feel comfortable using stairs, this might not be the best option for you because the building does not feature an elevator.
