      Historical Traveler Reviews Ai Mori d'Oriente Hotel Venice

      Brilliant

      from

      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

      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

      from

      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!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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!!

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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!

      from

      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.

      ... like some churches I have seen in Rome. It was mesmerizing and still had a minor sense of simplicity and class to it. After lunch, we went in to some of the shops. I found a pair of dark chocolate brown boots that I am in love with and a venetian mask.

      There is another surrounding island, Burano, that we were told was a must see. Thankfully, we decided to end our day here! It is one of the cutest cities I have ever seen. All of the houses ...

      We had been invited by the Captain to be on deck by 0700 to watch the ship enter the port of Venice! What a truly amazing sight to witness this very, very, large ship moving gracefully through very narrow channels and somehow managing to avoid the hundreds of small water craft nipping in and out of her shadow!

      As mentioned, we headed ashore to drop off our cases and then see a little of Venice before we returned to the ship for our last night as her guests.

Looks like an extremely late dinner (hope that doesn't mean dried out or tepid food) for our included three course 'feast' and I use that term loosely. :-) We had planned to relax tonight and do our laundry to see us through until we get back to Dublin next week. But, there are a lot of people disappointed in missing out on their excursion. Hopefully the schedule tomorrow ...

      ... and the kids. These buses were filled with tired people who had luggage to collect from storage under the bus. We could beat them! The first bus was parked before we were, and we were close to the middle on the second, but it worked. We arrived around 10:30. I was first in line and pulled Lisa up to check in with me. Next train was 10:58, and if we missed that one, the next one wasn't until 12:40. Our room was ready, so we threw everyone's luggage in our room while Lisa bought train ...

      We left the Cinque Terre with fond memories and set off for a long day of travel to Venice. Several trains and a couple of buses were becoming the norm on travel day's so we weren't overly phased by the length of the trip.

      Everything was running so smoothly, all of our trains were on time (wait, what?!) and the transfers at the other two stations went without a hitch. Once we got to Venice we followed our accommodation directions to get to ...
