Travel Blogs from Venice
What a perfect long weekend! I had heard so much of Venice before visiting, but it hardly did it justice Venezia is so much more: ...beautiful secluded streets, ending up in perfect narrow canals, so much different from the famous Grand Canal ...small squares in the parts of the town not yet destroyed from tourists, with perfect little cafes and …
... gondola ride and have some free time before heading back to the ship. We had also decided that we were going to stay and work our way back to the ship later in the afternoon.
The rain put a damper on much of that. We followed our guide to the gondola stand but they were not going out in the rain. They told us to come back in 10 minutes and see. During that 10 minutes, the rain stopped and our ...
... in and out of sleep, if you can call it sleep, Sarah tells me to go check and see if the other car is working. Sure enough, the lights were on and there were empty cars for us to make megabeds. After having a sleepless night, for the next 5 hours we slept like babies. Before long, just as with every trip, we were back at the Kartause, our home away from home. Only two more short weeks left in this place..but we aren't gonna think about that just ...
... had been adapted for a more modern time, judging by the cars and the outfits I'm guessing the 1960's or 70's. I didn't understand any of the words of course, but that's diversity for you, an Aussie, watching a French opera in an Italian theatre about a Spanish tragedy. And it was fabulous!
The way home was a bit of a challenge. I didn't get lost, but I was temporarily unsure of my location. I made it a vaporetto stop (which may or may not have been the one I started ...
... bridges, gondolas and water taxis. It's a very beautiful place, not as dirty as I thought it was going to be but waaaaaay more busy than you would expect it to be during the shoulder season on a Tuesday afternoon.
Since it was already mid day, the fam jam decided to grab a quick bite to eat after stopping in a pastry shop. When we were there and wanted to eat everything, we finally realized it was time for lunch. We devoured salad, pizza and gnocchi. A lovely Italian ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Palazzo Odoni Venice
Only positive comments to be made. Alberto and Allesandro are excellent hosts, helpful and friendly at all times, but simultaneously unintrusive. My Italian is poor, but both of them were more than happy with both English and French. The hotel has an all night porter who will let you back in if you're prone to insomniac night strolls, sleepwalking, debauchery, etc.
I found the hotel through Venere, and made my decision based on multiple reviews posted on Tripadvisor.com
Such a good cappucchino
You can find Palazzo Odoni in one of the most beautiful parts of Venice. People there are very nice. The rooms are warm and clean. The buffet breakfast is good with plenty of joice. And you get a magnificent cappucchino! Staying in the Palazzo Odoni gives you the feeling of being welcomed.
Palazzo Odoni is a wonderful place to enjoy Venezia, very clean and friendly people.
Palazzo Odini Venice Excellent little B & B
Venice - Palazzo Odini - very good
We have just returned from our first trip to Venice and stayed at the Palazzo Odini. The hotel is well situated (3 minutes walk from the bus station). The hotel is tastefully decorated and very clean. The breakfast was good with plenty of choice. The only downside was the climb up the numerous steps to get to the reception!!!
We would thoroughly recomend this hotel
A Wonderful Experience!
A small and lovely hotel in a convenient yet quiet location. Rooms were well appointed and had large bathrooms. We will definately stay here again!
A well located comfortable budget hotel
The Palazzo Odoni is a very comfortable small budget hotel. It is convenient for the bus station (Piazzale Roma) and the railway station. It is also very convenient for the Grand Canal or one can walk to St marks in 30 minutes. Despite being so well placed it is in a very quiet location.
The rooms are pleasant and comfortable with very well appointed bathrooms. The hotel offers an adequate self service continental brekfast but does not offer other meals or a bar (but rooms do have a well stocked and not too expensive mini bar).
Do not be put off by the unprepossessing exterior - the inside is much nicer! Also don't look for any "hotel" signs just a small brass plaque with a buzzer (24 hour service).
Altogether an ideal place to explore this amazing city.
