This is a great base for seeing all the sights-only a few minutes walk from St Mark's square, but tucked away enough that it is quite quiet. The room is reasonable- be careful when opening the shutters though as that is where the mosquitos lurk! The bathroom could be better- the shower was poorly designed and soaked the room. Be... More

No elevator so just request for a room on the lower floor. WiFi is unstable in some areas but it's free! Great location. Just a few steps from San marco. Also walking distance to rialto! Chamber maids and breakfast servers are very nice. Rooms are spacious and good bathroom! Nice hotel to stay at. Receptionist is sometimes not bilingual and... More

Stayed in triple room which was always clean and comfortable. The location is great- very near San Marco and so easy to find and then very easy to find your way back from after exploring. The staff was very helpful to us ; making phone calls with us to airline to help find delayed luggage. As noted , there is... More

The location is perfect, the room is okay, bathroom tiny but who wants to spend more time there than necessary. Have to agree the worst haidryer in the world. Take your own. Breakfast take it or leave it and mostly we left it. We were on the 4th floor. There are no lifts The staff were friendly and helpful, but... More

The hotel is close to all the amenities you will need in Venice. It was extremely clean with very helpful staff. Our room was spotless everyday and the on suite facility was adequate. We were on the fourth floor and there is no lift in the hotel, so be prepared after your hours of walking around. Venice is prone to... More

I stayed at Hotel Orion for 2 nights while in Venice this past February. The hotel location couldn't have been any better. The hotel itself was easy to find, a short distance from the water taxi and a stones throw from St. Mark's Square. Please note I've rated this hotel as a 4/5 based on the fact that this a... More

Breakfast very good, delicious freshly made coffee! Lovely breakfast room, light with view of church and street. No lift. Room spacious, we... More

We recently stayed at the Orion Hotel as part of a BA holiday package for 4 days in lovely Venice. The hotel is the most ideal location, just a short wander from St Marks square, but far enough away to not be swamped by the tourists. The room we had, No31 was very small with two singles put together as... More
