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.

We didn't go in, but the church on the outside was beautiful, with lots ...
... pizza, and the waiter brought us that page missing from our menu. We were tourists, and we were being toyed with. We should have walked then. When he came to take our order, I said the kids were splitting a pizza to which he became very indignant and said it was one pizza per person and no sharing allowed. Without hesitation I announced, "Now we are leaving!", and we got up and moved on. The bill for our table of seven would have been close to $100 for pizza and Cokes for lunch while ...
... information quite easily. In the Germanic countries, France and Italy we had enough language skills to decipher what we needed to do, but it wasn't until we drove in Slovenia that we had to confront the language barrier. We felt more upbeat by the experience about taking on Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic and the idiosyncrasies of their road systems and rules. We pointed the car east towards Hungary and Budapest in particular and off we sailed. As soon as we ...
... domes, numerous chapels, and a massive pulpet, which was basically was occupied the back half of the church, and which was a restricted area. Despite not having a lot of windows, the church was bright inside, due to the gold mosaics which covered the ceiling. The artwork, in the byzantine style, which depiced Jesus and others with impassive, non-emotional expressions, combined with the gold of the ...
... amazing how much plastic rubbish was floating around. Kylie found. It a challenge getting in and out. it had been a beautiful day, with heat in the sun. Crikey, everyone was wrapped up in cats and hats, I hate to think what they wear on a cold day. Andrew went into a shop with his back pack and got quite rudely ordered out. it wasn't an issue anywhere else. His parting shot was he would take his business elsewhere. Kylie had walked ...
