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.

... Venice is magical. There is no other city like it...it's a must see! As we were standing in front of the vaporetto (water bus) stop, trying to figure out how to navigate the system, we were approached by a lovely French couple who generously gave us a week long pass on the Venice vaporetto system (they had won the passes at the casino the night before and were leaving Venice the day we arrived). Talk about paying it forward! Each ride on a vaporetto is 7 euro, so ...

We found ourselves at the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, built by the Franciscan order over many years during the 1300's. The cathedral contains two Titians, some Donatello and Bellini. We were lucky to visit when a children's choir from France was rehearsing for a performance this evening. I videoed the music for you to hear while enjoying ...
