The MEININGER Venezia Mestre will open in Venice on 1 March 2023. The new hotel becomes the fourth MEININGER hotel in Italy as the chain continues to pursue its expansion plans.
Travelers visiting Italy can now choose between four MEININGER hotels - the new hotel in Venice, one in Rome and two hotels in Milan. In all, the group has over 1,000 beds in Italy alone.
Pastel-colored rooms & modern design
The MEININGER Venezia Mestre has 434 beds divided in 112 twin and multi-bedrooms, offering a flexible bed structure. The multi-bedrooms are particularly useful for families, school trips, groups of friends and backpackers as they can also be used as dormitories with up to six beds. The hotel is equipped with many useful facilities. These include a guest kitchen, free baby cribs, large common areas, game zone with pool table, lobby, bar, lockers and a washing machine and dryer.
The seven-story building which previously housed a hostel has been partially remodeled, and the interior has been completely redesigned. Inspired by Venice's art and architecture, the design reflects the international avant-garde and the artistic ambience of the lagoon city. A sophisticated mix of culture, art and architecture awaits guests in the pastel-colored rooms inspired by La Biennale di Venezia.
La Serenissima: The Magic City in the Sea
"We are delighted to enrich the Italian hotel market with the MEININGER Venezia Mestre.
