Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 28, 2013

I was looking for a relatively inexpensive hotel within the main part of Venice. I also combined the hotel with a flight with British Airways.
The staff at the hotel were excellent. The Receptionist spoke excellent English although some of the other staff do not.
The hotel is located not far from St Mark's Square but is not easy to find. I stayed for 4 days and never found it first time on each day - be sure you know where it is.
The hotel is relatively small. There is not a lift and I was on the top (4th) floor and there are quite a few stairs.
My room was clean and well maintained. It had a double bed (I travelled on my own) and a TV. It might have been a little 'cosy' for two people. The bathroom is compact but not a great deal of room to move about in it.
Breakfast was a continental one and was excellent and plenty.
The hotel was good value for money and the positive comments made by others about is locality (near lots of shops and restaurants) are spot on.

This was a good hotel for sightseeing. The breakfast was nice even though continental . Only moan would be that our shower was too small for me to get in as I have bad hips and couldn't lift my legs over edge of bath. Our window overlooked Spardia and a bit loud but of course it was busy when we were here.

Lovely little hotel tucked away on a little alleyway 3 minutes from St Marks Square. Quiet, safe area even at 4am in the morning when we needed to leave to catch a taxi to the airport which means a 3 minute walk to the pier. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom small like a lot of European hotels, but quite delightful with air conditioning.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good

Could not be in a better place. Hotel Orion is amongst little alleys and canals packed full of character with atmospheric little shops and bars and 3 minutes walk from St. Mark's Basilica in St Mark's square. The owners and staff are all very helpful and friendly. Very good simple, clean family run hotel and great value. I went with my daughter and we had a nice airy room on the 5th floor with views on 2 sides.
Do not expect luxury. If you want this book in to somewhere on the Grand Canal and pay 10 times as much money !

My first impression was how small the room was! Basically a bed and not much else; however our bathroom was larger than our friend's bathrooms. The stairs were a bit difficult with heavy luggage (there's no lift) so hope that you're not right up the top! The staff were friendly and the breakfast was very good. Very centrally located to everything; you walk out the door and you're in the heart of Venice. Very clean and quaint.

Extremely central, reasonable prices, helpful staff, great value! Breakfast as can be expected in italy...small, clean rooms with fresh towels every day. Ask for room overlooking the small piazza. No elevator and no staff to carry your luggage to your room.

We were in the apartment just next to the main hotel. The room was fine, clean with good sized wardrobe etc. The location was nice very close to San Marco, and the shutters blocked out all outside noise well.
Breakfast was basic but adequate. Certainly good value, when you compare what other places are charging in the most ridiculously overpriced city in the world (makes Paris look cheap).
