Stay here! Quiet little hotel right in the heart of Venice. Cool and calm rooms, great free breakfast. Definately worth it!!
The staff are very helpful any time you have a problem. The only complaint would be the wifi which costs too much. Overall amazing
Little hotel in the heart of Venice. And so quiet because of double glazing.

Tucled away about 100 metres from St Marks square is this little gem. We arrived at 1am due to flight delay but the concierge was waiting and so helpfull. The room was clean opening onto a busy street but no noise with the window shut. Breakfast was cereal, pastry, choice of drinks and refills served by two lovely ladies. The breakfast room overlooked a small piazza and a street. Many restaurants nearby and a gelateria selling €1.50 ice creams! Air con, safe (€5 deposit), tv, booking service.
Even a secluded back yard for the smokers.

The best thing about the hotel Orion was its great location. It was right next to San Marco which therefore meant a fastpass to some of the main attractions. The hotel was also good for its price, especially since it's impossible to find a good hotel in Venice without being terribly expensive. The rooms were basic and the service was fine. However there were ants. There were many on the floor but they seemed to have cleaned them up a bit by the second day. There was also a weird smell when we entered the room every time but would get used to it in a couple of minutes. The breakfast area was also very cute. All around was very basic and a great location.

Spent 4 nights at this hotel. Location couldn't be more perfect. Less than 5 minutes from San Marco & the vaporetto stops - local & airport. We could go out & explore and come back for a breather. Although there was no lift our cases were taken to & from our room. The room was lovely overlooking the cartier corner. there was no bar in the hotel, but the minbar in the room has a good selection of drinks & prices were on a par with the shops below. Breakfast was continental, and you could have as much as you wanted. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Given the location, the price we paid was an absolute steal. I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to anyone going to Venice

Hotel Orion is in a fantastic location..close to - walking distance - St Marco Sq, vaporetto, Rialto etc. Tucked away on a cobbled walkway near the Ferrari & Cartier corner, the hotel is compact (as all things are in Venice) but clean, brekky is continental and ok but the pastries and coffee are great. Bathrooms are quite small but clean & well stocked. No elevator and the rooms are centred around a marble staircase so small suitcases are recommended. Staff are helpful and speak english. The outdoors area, with table & chairs is in a peaceful nook off the main & busy pathways of Venice. Gelati and sweets shop just next door. My second stay there mostly for the location and price (compared to other Venice accomodation) and helpfulness of front desk staff.

Just enjoyed our 3rd visit to this small well run hotel. Perfect location 100 metres from St Marks Square, spotless and well appointed small rooms,modern bathrooms/furniture, excellent buffet breakfast, really friendly helpful staff and all at a really reasonable cost

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the square. No lift but helpful porter!

The room was quite spacious with windows looking over the shops. The bathroom is quite tight but serviceable. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. There is no elevator but a steward carried our luggage up to the room-thankfully! The breakfast room was nice and the continental breakfast included cheese and sausage along with fruit, rolls, cereal and juices. I would definitely stay here again if we were to return to Venice. The location is great- between St. Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge.
