We've just returned from a 2 night stay at the Orion Hotel in Venice. I was iniatially concerned having read reviews on here about how difficult it would be to find. The one tip I would pass on is "print the map" that is on the hotels own website - it is clearly marked and is then really easy to find.
The rooms look bigger on the internet but they do an adequate job (room was probably 12ft.10ft) - view was good - not great but then hotel is on a side street.
Breakfast was continental as expected - was lovely
The best thing this hotel has going for it is the best location ever !! 2mins from San Marco square, 5mins from Rialto Bridge, 3 mins from Bridge of sighs.
Great experience of venice - thank you.
We also asked for advice on how to get to Murano and other islands and the reception desk were extremely helpful and knowledgeable
