Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Orion Venice
Very cheeful atmosphere clean.a good spot next to square
very clean and pleasant hotel
A very good 2*
A surprisingly good hotel - first impressions are deceptive. I had a single room on the top floor - which was actually a very tasteful small double with a view! The bathroom was miniscule.The reception staff were exceedingly helpful but I think my willingness to try to speak Italian helped a little.
Hotel was in a great spot next to St.Mark's Square and a short walk from the vaporetto stop. Rooms were small and basic but comfortable and the staff were helpful. The rooms were very hot as the airconditioning was turned off so you had to open the windows at night to cool the room down but this let in all the noise from the street below which meant you had to decide which was the most annoying. I think this might be a common problem in Venice as the narrow street carry the noise. Overall a good hotel in a great position.

The floors were covered with beautiful, …

At Venezia S. Lucia we transferred to a water taxi (vaparetto) to ferry us across to Venice. As the island came into full view I found my excitement and anticipation growing. Not …
... canals. We found a nice place for dinner alongside a canal and caught each other up on each others' honeymoon trips. Their hotel was overbooked, so they were put into a different hotel for one night and would be moved back the next day. Apparently, it gets quite busy here.
We enjoyed our dinner, the company, but after a long travel day, we were ready to try and find our alleyway "hotel" and go to sleep. It wasn't as hard the second time, but it was still in an ...
... our hotel. Robin got spaghetti sauce on her blouse. The waiter sprayed her blouse with stain remover and then gave her a brush to knock it off. It actually worked. After dinner we walked to St. Marks square. Guys were selling night light sticks that were thrown high into the air and floated down lighting up. I bought four for the grandkids. We walked to the ...
