Travel Blogs from Venice
As we were packing up our room this morning, we watched our first sights of Venice from the ferry! Such a great city, can't wait to get into port. Unfortunately, by the time we did get into port, we had little clue which side of the city we were on! So asked around and eventually ended up waiting for a shuttle that took us to the port entrance, …
Can I just say, that if you have ever dreamed of going to Venice, You just need to go there!
We loved Venice.
What can I say? It's everything that you see on the movies and more.
Perhaps the best thing about Venice is that it is unique!
There are no cars running around. Your on an Island and were boats are your only transportation, …
Well, we made it to Venice....and for the most part it is just as you would probably expect it to be. Don't get me wrong it is an amazing city really, but very much what I anticipated. It is a romantic city the way the tiny streets run along the canals. The far end of the city was very neat and unexpected though. There are trees and grass, and a …
Arrived early at the Florence train station, found our gate like the pros we've become, and had no problem with gents offering to help us. Two hour train ride making multiple stops along the way. The only inconvenience was the ticket agent last night booked us for seats 61 & 62 in Coach 1; there was no seat 61 so Robin sat in the luggage rack. …
... hour which was a nice surprise BUT it would be in a different hotel! Nothing to be done about it except to hunt out a cool place to have a drink and we make a decision to go on a gondola for 40 minutes! Twas worth it – very calm and restful respite after the rush and bustle. When we get to the hotel Lanterna, our new abode, we find our room is at the top of several very steep flights of stairs! Not what we needed at all but with the help of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews A La Locanda di Orsaria Venice
Stayed here for two nights in June and found it to be a very pleasant place. The location is great for the train station and you don't have to cross any bridges to get to it which is a real bonus. There is no elevator so be warned if you get a room on the second floor.
Nice B&B, good location
Overall this B&B is very nice, friendly staff and clean rooms is always is a good start... However we stayed over the Easter period and the hotel was full, they have got around 20 rooms not 8, and breakfast is a bit of a nightmare, the food is great but they don't have the room to serve the amount of people that they have staying and you can end up waiting for a table to become free... this happened to us everyday and we even varied the time we went down...
The rooms are a nice and big but if you like early nights it may not be the place for you as it can be very noisy until about 11pm and the early morning deliveries and church bells make nice alarm clock !!!
Overall we had a nice stay and found the location great for exploring Venice.
I stayed here in a single room on March 05. The hotel is located in a very narrow street beside Scalzi church and bridge, a couple of steps from the railway station (Ferrovia). It is small but it worked for me as I was staying only for a weekend and spent most of my time wandering around Venice and not lazying in my room. The bathroom looked recently refurbished and spotless clean, the bed was really 2 twin put together, but ok. The bedroom was sometimes a bit smelly due to the nearby canal (being an inside one, it tends to be like that), but this is a minor issue only. It is a bed and breakfast, but their emphasis is more on the continental breakfast rather than deli, eggs and the like. Walls are not sound-proof, so I had to put up with a rather noisy couple on the room above me. Staff is friendly and English-speaking and the best about this guesthouse I would say is location, as it's just a few steps away from one of the main vaporetto stations, and from there you could get almost anywhere in the island.
Super Little Hotel
We stayed here for 4 nights in September 2003. The hotel is very small and situated in a narrow alleyway very close to the railway station and the vaporetto stop "Ferrovia".
A great location for exploring Venice with plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.
Our room was small and decorated in the Venetian style. The bathroom was very small but the room had all the necessary facilities and was comfortable. A word of warning....the isn't a lift and so you have to carry your bags and cases up fairly steep flights of wooden stairs. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was continental style.
We would stay here again.
The hotel is small and quaint, very clean and nicely decorated.
The rooms are priced inexpensively and although the hotel has limited services, the staff are very helpful in organizing tours etc.
The 2 minute walk from the train station is key, as you do not want to be struggling with a suitcase through the streets.
I would definitely stay at this hotel in the future.
Convenient to train station
The biggest plus for the hotel is how convenient it is for travelers who are only staying in Venice for a short period. Locanda di Orsaria is just 2 mins away from the train station, and a quick jaunt to Piazzele Roma, which has the bus to the airport. Was very easy to lug our luggage past a few canals and get to the airport for our 10am flight. The hotel itself is small, very "European" with dark wood and flower wallpaper. Rooms are on the small side but clean. The staff is very friendly and speak English well. There's many restaurants nearby to choose from, but the smells wafted up the alleyway towards our window (which overlooked the alley), which I wasn't fond of.
