      Historical Traveler Reviews A La Locanda di Orsaria Venice

      Great location, noisy mornings


      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.

      It's about a half hour leisurely stroll to St Marks Square. Because you're near the train station it's easy to find your way back to the hotel from most places by just following the signs for the train station (al Ferrovia). There are lots of places nearby to eat and drink and the Casanova nightclub (I think there's only 2 or 3 in the whole place) is five minutes away.

      The only warning I can give about this place is the noise in the morning - it's not the place to stay if (like us) you want to sleep in. From 7am onwards the churchbells, workmen, delivery men and locals make such a noise that there is no chance of sleeping late. However if you are an early starter then this won't be a problem :-)

      I would recommend this place as good value (for Venice!), great location and friendly staff.

      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.

      Value for money


      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.

      Great location


      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.

      ... br> I would say it took us over two hours or so to find our way to our hotel. It took about an hour after this little shop. I have to say we were a little cross with it all, just about how difficult it is to navigate the city. Finally, San Marco square, massive buildings and the Dumo and expensive Corona, which we don't buy. We get home, get out the maps to try to find where we were. Very difficult to work it out as we couldn't find where we were dropped off. ...

I didn't have a more spectacular idea so this is where we celebrated the New Year along with thousands of others. San Marco, or St. Mark's Square, is a very large, open air plaza surrounded on three sided by cafe's, shops and a museum; offices occupy the second and third floors. The ...

I did find a shop where they had some scarves which were made in Italy. Although they weren't burano made (I'm not a millionare!) they were at least supporting the Italian economy, so ...
