Just returned from a two night stay at Locanda Orseolo for my husbands surprise birthday getaway.....wow what can I say......we arrived by private boat from the docks, (which was kindly organised for us by Gigi) and climbed in through the window....great fun!. We were greeted by name by Igor who showed us to the room and explained how everything worked. We were in a superior room overlooking the courtyard (Giandulya) which was gorgeous and very quiet. I imagine a canal room would be less quiet. All the little extras are great (toiletries, tea/coffee/hairdryer etc).
Breakfast...fresh fruit crepes and latte's were delicious.
All the staff were extremely helpful offering directions etc and a special mention to Lorenzo who was great and even offered us drinks once we had checked out and returned to collect our luggage.
We will return here next year. Before we booked Locanda Orseola I wanted to stay at the Hotel Danieli as I had seen it in lots of movies. We took a trip to the Danieli and wandered around....All I can say is that I am very pleased we chose to stay at the Locanda Orseolo instead. I'm sure no one in the Danieli would have remembered our name!.
If you are planning to go to Venice stay at Locanda Orseolo......you wont be disappointed!
