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.

... which included a ride in a gondola. These are amazing boats which are beautifully decorated, and the gondoliers are very skilled at maneuvering them with just one oar. While we did not have a singing gondolier on our boat, we were in a group of 5 boats, and one of them had a singer who serenaded us. Sally was thrilled, and is now able to take that out of her bucket list.
We disembarked the following morning (yesterday morning) and checked into a ...
... of some sort, but each one way ticket is 7 euros (between $9 and $10 USD). There are pass options for tourists, but they are no bargain. A seven day pass was 50 euros!
The fresh air and open spaces without a million tourists was wonderful! We arrived at our first winery which was a small producer, and had a very serious wine tasting, with six different proseccos. You probably know that I really ...
Today was our final stop: Venice. This gorgeous city, at least the island part, has no cars, but instead transportation is accomplished either by walking or by boat in the canals. We chose not to go on a tour today, so we ended up walking around the city for a while. We headed to St. Mark's Square, which is home to St. Mark's Basilica. This church is so named because supposedly St. Mark's remains were recovered by Venetians from Alexandria in ...
... it had just started to rain gently, picked up our brollys & went for our last meal here. Then we wandered once more towards the station, caught our last ferry & returned home to pack up for tomorrow morning. Over the past 3 days we must have averaged more than 2hours a day on vaporetti & they are a great way to see the place. At €30 for the 3 day passes we surely had our moneys worth.
Venice has been brilliant for us & one day we hope to ...
... most beautiful remote scenery in the land, but once they get near any towns they are obliged to deviate through run down, dilapidated, industrialized zones. The landscape has been lovely, but the industrial district of Firenze is a poor neighbor to Michelangelo's "David". By the way: At the train station today an "Italian stallion" said to Jane as we passed by "Ciao, beautiful!", to which Jane replied (thanks to the Italian she's managed to pick up in the 3 days here) ...
