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.

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 ...
... Back at the apartment we had some after-dinner drinks - the local tipple 'Spritz' for me, and some Italian beer for Bernard. We later headed out to find some nightlife and have a drink or two, but there wasn't anything really lively going on, even closer to St Mark's and the Rialto Bridge, so we settled for a gelati while wandering back to the ...
... us up to the private gallery where we were allowed to touch but not take photos. All very beautiful and expensive. We eventually made our way to near an exit and escaped without buying anything from them. Wandered around looking at lots of shops, buying bits and pieces and eventually made our way back to a ferry stop and back to our hotel. Walked to the Rialto part of town, bought some more glass and found a place for dinner on the way ...
If anyone is visiting Italy for the first time, there are three cities that decide for themselves that they are to be visited. Rome, of course, because it is large, brash, energetic and the capital of an empire and the home of Catholicism; Florence, ostensibly because of its association with Michelangelo and its relevance to the Renaissance but really because it is a documentary about the power and wealth of the Medici's; and Venice, ...
