Spent 4 nights at Hotel Orion recently and very much enjoyed our stay. The room was surprisingly airy, clean and comfortable with a nice sized bathroom. The staff are very friendly and breakfast is adequate to set you up for the day. The location is perfect- just two minutes from Saint Mark's Square, and close to vaparetto stops to take... More

My first time in Venice and we were so lucky to find this hotel with the best-ever location. We were literally a 1 minute walk from San Marco Piazza and close to the water bus stops. The staff was helpful and very pleasant. The room we stayed in was small, very clean and well-appointed. Great wifi. Breakfast was good. I... More

Just spent a lovely 4 night stay here with my daughter. The hotel is small, friendly and conveniently located for sight seeing in Venice and visiting surrounding attractions (we went to Verona and Burano). The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean with a large bathroom. Considering the hotel is a short walk from... More

The hotel offered reasonable rates for Venice, in a very central location. For a first visit to the city, it was ideal, and really easy to find just off Piazza San Marco. Room was a good size, clean and in good condition with en suite to match. Staff on the desk were friendly. Breakfast was reasonable with nice pastries, plus... More

The location is excellent. Very central thus giving you access in all directions for places of interest. Rooms adequate. Breakfast was good. Reception is 24hrs. It wasn't that hot but would have liked to turn on the air conditioner on as keeping the window open we had a bit of a problem with mosquitos. Maybe insect screens fitted to windows... More

Hotel Orion was wonderful. This property shines with the helpfulness and professionalism of the staff; the cleanliness of the facility and location, just steps away from S. Marco. The only downside was lack of a lift; lots of narrow stairs.

The Hotel Orion was a great venue for my stay in Venice. The hotel is in a brilliant location. Staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was simple but more than adequate. Overall a good venue for a short stay in Venice.

No air conditioning in April and it gets hot in the rooms. You can open the windows for a strong breeze but get ready for noise since you're I'm town. Refrigerator was a plus. Cramped but nice bathroom. Lots of tight stairs to get to the rooms but the back courtyard is a nice place to relax between excursions. Breakfast... More

A good location is about all this hotel has going for it!! Our first impression was terrible the man that was at reception was so rude and not helpful at all. We requested twin bedding only to be told if we wanted twin bedding it would be an extra €80/night even though when we booked the room we looked at... More

Dear Guest, the night porter can not prepare breakfast, infact finally our maids prepared as usual your breakfast even before the right time. For free. We always prepare breakfast or, for very early departures, a "box breakfast" to take away. Regarding the economy rooms, they are just smaller than the standard ones and have one double bed, not two twin... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
