    Historical Traveler Reviews Ai Mori d'Oriente Hotel Venice



    recently stayed for three nights in this newly renovated hotel in the cannaregio area of venice.we were in the annex which was down an alley but it was well lit at night,they are still working on another part of the building but we did not hear any noise at all.also the small bridge next to the hotel is closed for repairs so you will have to do a bit of a detour if you are following directions if walking to the are within walking distance of everywhere but wear flat shoes as there are a lotof bridges to cross!!it is a three minute walk to the vaporetto stop ORTO

    the hotel itself was spotless the room was beautiful although it did not have a view and was quite small,everything was brand new and excellent quality-the breakfast was a feast it really set you up for the day the staff were all very helpful polite and spoke excellent english.

    the area around the hotel looked mainly residential it was very quiet at night but bustling during the day with local markets shops etc

    there was a small shop on the corner of the next fondamenta which sold wine by the litre just take in an empty bottle and they fill it for 1.90 a litre and you can buy pizza for two euros a slice so you can eat cheaply if you are on a budget or just want a snack

    all in all we would higly recommend this hotel as it is not too touristy but close enough to the main attractions

    the bar was relaxing after along day on your feet and not too expensive

    a little off the beaten track but truly charming this was the real venice and we loved it

    Great hotel! Clean, quiet with character


    My husband and my self has the privlege staying at this hotel, its about a 10 min walk from the train station. Upon arriving we had no idea where it was so we took a water taxi. It was a ripe off, 50 euros , but I really didnt care at the time! The hotel is off the main canal which is great! It was very quiet and very clean! It had the best breakfast we had on our trip! THe hotel was recently renovated so everything was new! It is close to St Marks square, walking distance about 15 min. Venice by far was my favorite city in Italy! And the best hotel we stayed at! I do recommend not opening your windows, Mosquitos will eat you up! Great cafes! beautiful hotel!

    Wonderful hotel!


    A charming hotel in a beautiful, quiet location only a very short walk to the central attractions. Staff were discreet, friendly and helpful. Had a 'standard' double room - but nothing standard about this. Although a little on the small side it was beautifully decorated in Oriental style, with all modern amenities and a lovely bathroom. Staff turned the bedsheets over in the evening - a nice touch. The hotel is clearly new and in impeccable condition. Also a great breakfast. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to avoid the noise and hordes of St Mark's Square, which is a mere twenty minute walk away. Very easy to get here from the train station or the airport via public transport and a very short walk. Explore some of the side streets to discover some great little restaurants which are much better value than the standard tourist fare. Don't be afraid if the menu is in Italian only - this means that the Venetians actually eat there!

    Very nice stay


    Stayed 3 nights in early April. Besides it is LONG walk from train station especially when we had heavy luggage (should have taken a water bus, but still a good 10 min walk) The stay was wonderful. the hotel is worthy of its 4 stars rating. Very nice decorating throughout hotel lobby, eating area and room. Breakfast has great selection and excellent fruit salad, the waiters are very helpful.

    Smooth as the Silk Trade Trail


    Our stay here was near the end of March 2004, following a week-long

    riverboat trip on the Po, a train trip and stay in Florence and Tuscany

    and back to Venice and the Ai D' Mori. After sitting on the train for

    three hours and arriving on a sunny day, we decided to stretch our legs

    and walk from the train station. We did not time the distance or feel

    the need to do so. Wheeling our single suitcases was brief enough and

    not a problem, and allowed us to get the flavor of Cannaregio sestieri

    and to pass by signs of many hotels, located down very narrow alleys,

    that we had considered. As soon as we saw the Ai D' Mori, we knew we

    had made our reservation in the right hotel. Sparkle, cleanliness and

    attention to detail greet ed us immediately and continued as we stepped

    inside. The reservation desk personnel were professionally attired,

    prompt and helpful.

    The bellman took us via elevator to room #108. Even the key was an elegant brass one with a silk maroon tassel, and there was a special niche inside the door on which to place it. Outside this room was a sitting area decorated in tasteful antiques and reproductions. A short distance down the corridor was a light-drenched nicely decorated lounge overlooking the canal. We decided it would be the perfect place to enjoy a drink from the hotel ground-floor bar on our return in the evening.

    Our room had coffered 10-foot ceilings, three windows tiered in double

    drapes and was spacious. There was no view except the building next

    door but we did not mind--we did not expect to use the room except for

    sleeping, as we were here to explore Venice. Even the closet doors had

    inlaid marquetry and the closets interiors were lighted (something we

    did not find in any other accommodations in Italy--handy if you want to

    retrieve glasses or something from pockets without turning on lights at

    night). Just beyond the closets, an arabesque arch, in keeping with the

    hotel theme, led into the room. There was also a table and chairs and a

    desk. My husband tried out the bed and satellite TV while I took a

    refreshing shower in the large, well-apointed blue and white tiled

    bathroom, complete with bidet. The towels were also ample. Ready for

    adventure, we stopped at the desk on our way out asking for the name of

    a cartography(map) shop and hoping for the possibility of a live

    Vivaldi concert for the evening somewhere in Venice. We were promptly

    given both and directions to the locations, plus a map of Venice.

    Afternoon led to evening and dinner and an amazing concert. It was near

    midnight when we returned to the Ai D' Mori from the concert, held near

    the Academia bridge vaporetta stop. We did not feel at all unsafe

    walking from the vaporetta stop back to the hotel. There was still

    quite a bit of foot traffic on the streets and especially on the

    Fondamente de la Sensa, the street of the hotel, where locals seem to

    linger outside and talk along the lesser canal. There is a water taxi

    stop right outside the hotel. A nice touch, when we could no longer

    keep our eyes open, was returning to our room to find that not only had

    the bed been turned down, but fresh linen mats had been laid on the

    floor on each side of the bed. Showered and slippered, one could get

    into bed without trodding barefoot after others who had previously

    occupied the room. The room was quiet and restful, and not at all

    stuffy. Next morning, before we came to the ground floor, we could

    smell the hot breakfast rolls baking. The breakfast room is streaming

    with light, squeaky clean, and had lovely floor to ceiling white silk

    patterned drapes and nice table linen. Cappaccino came quickly and we

    moved to graze over a huge breakfast buffet of cold cereals. yogurts,

    freah fruit compote of strawberries, kiwi, bananas, grapes, melon and

    apples, warm boiled eggs, several cold meats and cheese, juices, single

    fresh fruits, and of course, the lovely hot breads. Who wouldn't

    linger? Who wouldn't give the Ai D' Mori a try? We hated to leave and

    will stay there again.

    Won't stay here again!!


    A friend and I recently spent one night in Venice and chose this hotel based on information found on the internet. Contrary to what they advertise, the Oriente is NOT 300 meters from the train station, it's more like a 1 mile hike (especially fun when you are carrying luggage).

    It is also NOT near St. Marcos Square. This hotel isn't near anything.

    Worse than the location was the attitude of the hotel staff and management. When we questioned the manager about how they were supposed to be only 300 meters from the train station, he said that he made the walk everyday and it's no big deal and then insinuated that we were just lazy! They also don't tell you that half of the rooms are in a separate building, located in a very narrow, dark alleyway. When we complained about the location of our room (I wouldn't walk down an alley like that in my hometown), we found out that there was a nicer room, located in the main building that was available. The room was also very stuffy, there was no air conditioning, so we slept with the window open (being two single females, we didn't feel comfortable doing this in a ground floor room). Just a few minutes after turning the light out, the room was infested by mosquitos! We woke up covered with bug bites. Then the smell of sewage started to blow in, so we had to close the window. The manager refunded half of our money, but it didn't make up for their horrible attitude. I would not recommend this hotel!!

    Brand new hotel lives up to it's name


    I recently had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for just 1 night.

    This hotel like many others in Venice is not hard to get to once to figure out the streets of Venice. The hotel is close to the train station and you can get to most attractions very easily from it. The staff is very welcoming, friendly, and was quick to offer their recommendation of where to eat when asked. The breakfast at this hotel was the best I had in Italy. The room had a safe for your valuables; they turn down your bed in the evening, and even give you the weather report for the next day. Very pleasant stay would recommend to anyone visiting Venice.

    The Jewel of the Orient in Venice


    Visted this gem of a hotel for 5 days in February - brand new and well appointed. Staff incredibly friendly and helpful with a plentiful breakfast to set you up for the day. Loved being just outside of the tourist area - only a 20-minute walk to the centre and loads of opportunity to get 'lost' down a number of side streets to see the real Venice. Only 5 minute walk from the station and loads of good restaurants, though we managed to find some real treats and ate where we were the only tourists!! Close to the waterbus stop that took you to a Murano and the airport. It was easy to get to and if we were ever lost or could walk no further again hopped on to the waterbus and within minutes were back at our hotel.

    Very cosy, comfy, quiet, fantastic value!


    First of all, this hotel just opened, everything is spotless, the reception/bar are very nice and kept their character. Tha staff is nice as well as very helpfull. The breakfast is the best of my italian trip.

    Located close enough to the station, in a quiet area, perfect after days running through the city. The hotel seems to have been built in a old very big house, which has been split in several housing. So some rooms are accessible only through another door, from a narrow street, taht cross along the hotel from on canal to another. It is very romantic. The only thing is that because of the tide, when you go back to your room, the bathroom may stink, but it is not a problem because it does invade the room at all, you just have to let some water running for 5 second in the bath/sink/toilet/bidet to replace the U-bend water, and it's gone. I will definitly come back on my next trip.

    This morning Alex and I enjoyed a sleep in and relaxing morning as we sailed toward Venice. We were treated to wonderful views of the city again as we made our way to the port. Once we had docked Alex and I caught the vaporetto (public water bus) into St Mark's Square. We walked around some familiar streets and had a delicious pasta lunch at a cafe in a little square (although we had to wait about 45 minutes to get the bill!) The one ...

We head towards the water & decide to catch a water bus to Murano island. The island is famous for its glass factories & traditional glass blowers. It's a 45 minute scenic cruise & we are glad to rest our feet. As soon as we disembark there is a man yelling out glass factory ...

    Once we rode the water taxi to the end of the line we got off near our hotel. We were a little lost and were immediately pursued by a local trying to get our business porting our luggage to the hotel. Luckily, Brittany is good at that sort of thing and stood firm that no we didn't want it and that that didn't mean we wanted to barter. So off we went, pulling ...

    As we wound our way towards the main part of the city - Piazza San Marco (St Mark's Square), the crowd got thicker. Soon we were at crawling pace along the tight alleys, sharing more than just the pavement as we moved through the tight laneways. Just as it was becoming a little claustrophobic, we made it out into the huge open space that is St Mark's Square. St ...
