... wasn't too ********e vaporetto (ferry) ride and a bridge or two later I arrived. Note that lugging one's bags around is not ideal in Venice with the step bridges, but of course only applies when arriving and departing. Casa di Ferie was my humble student abode, and sharing a dorm with other travellers was great. However, before meeting new friends that evening, I had the afternoon to myself to explore the many islands of Venice, starting with San Marco ...
... longer and eventually went back to a little shop near the hotel that displayed UPS/DHL/FedEx labels out front, so it had to be a postal service of sorts. We asked if the man inside spoke English and he said he did. Then we asked if he had a box we could ship things home in, since we had yet to find a box anywhere, and he said he did and then started looking through a book and asked what weight our shipment was. Obviously ...

Supposed to arrive this week. After fulfilling our responsibility of being a good customer, the taxi driver took us to the main dock in Murano so that we could wander around the island. More, leisurely, mostly window shopping and then a nice lunch of pizza and wine in an outside courtyard. We then caught ...

We finally arrived at the pick-up point to find out that the real 'rioters' had supposedly moved on, and we were left with an underwhelming group standing on one side of the road unenthusiastically waving flags, facing a group of police on the other side ...

Burano was great too, every house is a different color, but also pretty deserted. Extremely quite, which made the walks around quite pleasant. almost a 45 minute boat ride took us back to venice. where me oh my its 5! train leaves at 730! we havent ate since breakfast!

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.
