Our stay at the Locanda Orseola was nothing short of magical! Immediately after booking our stay online, I received a wonderful email from Bruno, welcoming us.

I communicated with him and asked a few pertinent questions about our arrival and these were promptly answered with detailed information.

 My wife and I were there soon after the Iceland volcano eruption had resulted in closing of most airports in northern Europe and so when we arrived there had been some cancellations.

Gigi was already familiar with our names and our requests and kindly upgraded us to a suite in this immaculately renovated 1000 year old building, which now serves as a boutique hotel in the heart of St Marcos island, very close to the Piazza San Marcos.

The rooms were clean and well maintained. The wireless internet was free and this helped us keep abreast of the developments with the airlines as the catastrophe unfolded.

 The staff was extremely friendly and each of them knew your name, which amazed me.

They would give us detailed information about how to get around, avoiding some of the more touristy spots and how best to absorb the local flavor.

Their restaurant recommendations were great as well. Our days would start with the fantastic breakfast the hotel would serve, which included a buffet, as well as eggs cooked to order (included in the cost of the room).

This would fuel us up for the rest of the day and we spent most of the days wandering around and exploring the islands and the main city. So a nice dinner and wine in the evenings was just what we needed.

What was most amazing was the personalized attention of the staff. I have traveled the world and I can honestly say that this has to have been one of my best experiences.

I wish it could have lasted longer.

What did you enjoy most about your stay?
The location, the attentiveness of the staff and the wonderful breakfasts!

What did not meet your expectations?
Everything was better than I expected! Only downside was the English cable TV channels were on the fritz and we had to rely on our computer for the news. about the airport closures.
