    A really quaint family run hotel with a great breakfast. The staff are so friendly and while the beds were not comfy, there was a special appeal to the place that I would recommend.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda Orseolo Venice

    Que Bellisima!


    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!


    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


    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!


    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


    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...


    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!!!


    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


    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


    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


    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.

    ... great location & are able to walk to the majority of sights we want to visit.

    lots of map reading required....decide to have a modest coca cola in St Mark's Square...10 euros each! It was served beautifully by a waiter in bow tie & white jacket....we savoured it whilst watching the world go by.

    walked & walked round Venice which is the best way to experience it...keeps you fit too!

    ... of the bulk of tourists towards there. As we got closer to the Piazza and as it got later into the night, there were men hawking little light-up toys to shoot into the air, as well as small devices that made little laser light shows when you pointed them at the ground. There were others selling other various small objects and toys as well. These street hawkers were everywhere close to the Piazza, and they came up to us unprompted. It was somewhat unsettling.
