Travel Blogs from Venice
I travelled throughout Italy with my boyfriend for two weeks in Summer 2004 after we graduated from college. Our second stop was Venice. Despite the endless nausea from riding the ferroviaria, I found it a charming city with a lot of tourists but also a lot of "real life" going on all around us. The highlights of our trip were the Palazzo Ducale …
... floors up in the box next to the stage. (The cheap seats) I really should have done my research on Carmen, for some reason I thought it was similar to west side story but oh la la it was way raunchier than that. According to the program it was caused outrage in Paris in 1893, when it first premiered. It was considered to vulgar, which of course led to its rise in popularity. The subject matter centres around smugglers and ladies if the night which is quite raunchy for 1893. ...

Although the lovely basilica and its grand piazza were glorious we just loved getting lost in Venice. Apparently everyone get lost in Venice, the street signs are terrible, the map is useless and the backstreets too numerous to fit on any size map. After a while we just gave up trying to navigate the city and just enjoyed what we saw around us. Getting lost in the narrow back streets of Venice is the ...
... we even cooked a huge pizza for lunch the next day, I have to say though, cooking pizza on a bbq really is quite hard and we ended up with lovely melted cheese and tomato sitting on the most blackened pizza base you've ever seen. It was so hard that we snapped the pizza up unto pieces instead of cutting it! Ps sorry for the lack of photos in these last three, they're in my online and I haven't got wifi on it ...
We arrived in Venice early this morning. We were sailing up the grand canal from 7 am so of course we were all up on deck to watch. It took two hours to finally dock and is a small parking spot so we were all very impressed with the captains driving ability. The first sighting of Venice was amazing...lots of domes, towers....some on a lean....very old buildings and water, water every where. Off the ship as quickly as possible we walked to the train station then ...

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 hotel.you 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
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!
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.
Our stay here was near the end of March 2004, following a week-long
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).
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.
