“B&B Hard to Surpass”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We stayed here on our pre-cruise nights in Venice. The hotel was beyond our expectations with the staff providing perfect hospitality which is what sets it apart from many other places I have stayed.
The rooms are on the small side but that is typical for Venice. A hot breakfast cooked to order and a buffet get the day off to a great start. The location is 5 minutes to Saint Marks and the side canal location allows a water taxi to bring you right to the canal side door. The staff was very responsive to emails regarding all arrangements for transfer from the airport and all other questions. The only negative is the bedding which was on the firm side with stiff pillows. Read other reviews and don.t pass up the opportunity to stay at wonderful B&B.

Room Tip: A canal side room provided interesting views of the water way of life in Venice.

This was our first trip to Venice. Gigi and his staff could not have been better. The room was beautiful and well appointed. The breakfast was wonderful. The location was ideal. We could explore the city in one direction, come back to freshen up and head out again to another area. They coordinated us sharing a water taxi with another couple to the dock to meet our cruise ships. This saved time and money. Plus, the water taxi ride to the dock was a beautiful experience. We recommended them to a couple from Georgia on our gondola ride. Since we have returned home, my husband has recommend them to a co-worker. I hope we get to come back to Venice and the Locanda Orseolo again. Amazing city!.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the small courtyard and was very quiet. No water views but that was not an issu...

Sorry to have taken so long to write my review. We stayed in May for our wedding anniversary. We just love coming back to see our friends and still is the best place to stay in Venice even in Italy. Our best wishes to Gigi, Barbara, Igor and Lorenzo for making our stay so delightful.

Our first trip to venice and it was spectacular thanks to the Locanda Orseolo. The staff was amazing. They returned all my emails very promptly and answered all the questions thoroughly. The room was a great size and very quiet. Lorenzo and Davad? Had great suggestions for our dinners, which were great. Hot breakfast was delicious. (Especially the crepes and scrambled eggs) They also were a great help with figuring out the public water taxis and any other questions we had. The location was perfect and close to everything. We were sad to leave. Definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to venice.

This place is truly a gem. Everyone at Locanda Orseolo seemed genuinely happy to meet us, talk with us, provide recommendations, and help us out in any way possible. I've never felt more welcome at a hotel/BnB. The location was absolutely perfect - once you walk through the gate separating the crowds of San Marco from the courtyard of Locanda Orseolo, the noise just disappears. We had a WONDERFUL stay!

I enjoyed everything about our stay at Locanda Orseolo, from stepping off from our water taxi straight into the property, to the moment we had to leave.
The staff greeted us warmly, and had organised our room to be ready early for us, which was much needed after a harrowing car ride from Villefrance-sur-Mer to Nice airport. Our room was sumptuous, in the style of local Venetian shops. There was a sitting room, then the main bedroom, and an ample sized bathroom. You could view the passing gondolas from the windows in both rooms.
After a brief rest we went exploring, armed with a map provided by Barbara, indicating lunch establishments that fitted our criteria (simple, local food).
The staff were helpful in all other requests too (including my half a lemon with breakfast!).
In the room was a dossier with a list of local highlights, which we took great advantage of. If you plan to do the "Secret Itineraries tour" of Doge's Palace, as recommended, make sure you book in advance.
It was a total delight staying here, it is so nice to feel "taken care of".

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. It was like staying with an excellent family. The location was good, near San Marco, but in a private courtyard. My daughter loved looking out of our windows at the gondoliers. Breakfast was great as well. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Venice. Our only complaint was that the boats in the canal next to our room were quite loud in the mornings, but that is part of being in venice after all.
