Burano

A travel blog entry by travellingyak

A heavy blanket of fog lies over the city as we head off early for the island of Burano, famous for its lace making. Islands loom out of the mist as our ferry negotiates the traffic on the canal, and the islands seem to have a mysterious quality, appearing suddenly from the gloom. The weather improves as we arrive in Burano and what a delightful little village it is, with its houses painted bright and cheerful colours, each ...

... off to explore the city by night while Brett went back to the hotel (no doubt to get his baseball and NFL fix!). Getting home before 10pm Brett was already asleep after polishing off a bottle of Merlot!

Waking this morning again to the flood alarms, the weather was worse that the day before. 35km winds and rain. Today was marathon race day and an easy decision not to run.

Ilona was on an early afternoon flight back to ...

A day in Venice!

... pasta with Pesto (they were out of eggplant, so she couldn't get the dish she wanted). My dish was honestly one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had in my life. I have never had cuttlefish, so i don't have anything to compare it to. It was buttery, salty and had a hint of "squid" flavor. Very good! We shared a small thing of wine and it was the perfect end to our hectic day. Side note, the bathroom here gave us a laugh. The toilets were very low to the ground. In ...

Are panic attacks common in this city?

... small spaces. After startling awake numerous times, I finally fell asleep for good, certain that I would tell Adam and the kids we were leaving earlier than expected!

By morning however, the new dawn changed my perspective. We had survived one night, I'm sure I could handle two more. We spent the morning walking around Saint Marks square again. We didn't realize how nice it was in the evening before, until we ...

... as the sun went down and watching the gondolas go past. Sitting down there in our little spot, I think will be one of the most memorable things on this entire trip. Our last evening in Italy was spent at a lovely local restaurant on the edge of a small canal, eating fish. It was a lovely end to an amazing jammed pack 3 weeks in this gorgeous country. Will we came back….? We don’t know. There are so many countries out there to see ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda Orseolo Venice

    Que Bellisima!

    from

    Although I would love to keep this jewel of a hotel to myself, owners Barbara and Mateo deserve nothing but success with the Locanda Orseolo.

    The rooms are large and beautifully appointed with Venetian style furnishings and Murano glass chandeliers. The bathroom was the biggest and nicest of our entire trip. Our room was exceptionally quiet with a lovely view of the Orseolo canal. Breakfasts were terrific and Barbara's dinner suggestions were topnotch. Two minutes from Piazza San Marco but worlds away from the crowds and noise. When we checked out we felt like we were leaving old friends. I will NEVER stay anywhere else!

    Best secret in venice!

    from

    We had the best view in all of Venice. The hotel personnel were friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a clean, modern and friendly atmosphere.

    Loved Locanda Orseolo

    from

    Secluded yet convenient location near Piazza San Marco. Barbara, Mateo, and Francesco were the most welcoming hosts we had in Italy. We were always warmly greeted by name with smiles. One afternoon it rained and they brought out a supply of umbrellas for guests to borrow. Our room overlooking the Orseolo canal was spacious and well appointed; king bed, armoire, desk, color satellite TV, mini bar. The bathroom was spacious as well with bathtub, separate shower, and bidet. Breakfast was plentiful, and Mateo's cooked-to-order eggs and pancakes were an unexpected treat. One caveat for some - there is no elevator.

    Look no further!

    from

    What a relief! There is nothing like the uncertainty of booking a hotel via the Internet! You know, seeing the photos, reading the descriptions, and getting there and realising you've been fooled by a clever website! Well, you will not be dissappointed here. If you want clean and elegant rooms, modern bathrooms, wonderful atmosphere, perfect location, and service-oriented staff/owners - book here! This is a great place to stay for many reasons and I will not hesitate to return. Although, it is a bit pricey - the prices are competitive and unfortunately a characteristic of Venice accomodation. This is the perfect place for you if you can't afford the luxury of a 5-star but want as pleasant a stay as your money can buy. I can't say enough about the owners (Barbara & Mateo). They will do anything they can to make your stay comfortable and memorable! And, they speak fantastic English - and Mateo makes great omelettes! Thank you Locanda Orseolo!! Ciao, Joy & Ian Ward

    Outstanding Hotel

    from

    Superb hotel! The staff is friendly, efficient and eager to please. The room was ample size with good storage and was in execellent condition. It's a great location, a short walk to St Marks Square. Only caution, is that you need to go through a small iron gate into a court yard to find the hotel. It was a great stay!

    The best hotel I have stayed in...

    from

    Have just returned from a trip to Venice, made all the more fabulous thanks to this brilliant hotel. The staff were so friendly and helpful (remembering each guest's name and breakfast order from one day to the next, no less!), the rooms spotless and tastefully decorated and the location could not have been more perfect. It was literally 1 minute walk from St Mark's square and next to a major gondola park, yet thanks to double glazing, the rooms were really quiet. The breakfasts were delicious, and watching gondolas float past as you sip double espressos, is as great an experience of Venice as you will get. In our breakfast chats, the guests all agreed that the hotel was exceptional value for money, as most other b&b's cost way more and were not a patch on this one. This hotel is a 'must stay' while you are in Venice.

    Grazie Locanda Orseolo!!!

    from

    Venice was the first stop on our Italian honeymoon, and I can't think of a better way to start the trip. Barbara and Mateo treated us like family and provided great advice for exploring Venice without spending a fortune. They also offered great dinner recommendations (must try Antico Dolo). The hotel itself was immaculately clean and the rooms were spacious. Although the Orseolo is centrally located, it is hidden in a residential area... be sure to follow the detailed directions they provide. We definitely recommend this hotel, as well as Mateo's famous chocolate breakfast crepes!

    Wonderful Hotel, Wonderful people

    from

    Returned from Italy two weeks ago and couldn't wait to write this review. Forget the megahotels on the grand canal; this little gem provided the perfect base of operations for our exploration of fabulous Venice. The hotel is immaculate, the location couldn't be better and the family that recently purchased the property makes one feel like a member of the family. Request a canal view room- well worth the few extra euros.

    Great Find

    from

    I stayed at the Locanda Orseolo in late Oct., 2002. I booked it because all of the other hotels seemed to be booked due to the Venice marathon and this place was new and had availability. While it has no elevator, it is a very new hotel, with modern rooms, in a fabulous location. It has the best (most powerful and steady) shower I have ever had in a hotel. This was truly one of the great finds from my trip.

    Locanda Orseolo: great little hotel in the heart of Venice

    from

    Wonderful little hotel, very friendly service, tucked away in a little courtyard, right next to canal Orseolo: you can see the gondolas passing by during breakfast! It's very charming, quiet, ultra clean, friendly and helpful staff, all new interior and bathroom facility, good size rooms. Great location only steps away from San Marco Square.
