About these Venice hotel pages:
We've included customized Google maps that you can zoom, rotate, or drag for better views.
If you see a conflict between our directions and a hotel's, rely on ours. (Hotel sites are often years out of date.) Ditto for maps: Our icons are hand-placed for accuracy, while GPS-based labels can be off by a street or more.

ABOVE: The Hotel Concordiais
located just north of the Basilica di San Marco. It's a short walk from the San
Marco Giardinetti airport-boat stop, with no bridges to cross.
The four-star, 50-room
Hotel Concordia is the only hotel that
faces the Piazza San Marco (albeit the upper right corner, where some public
rooms and guest rooms have direct views of the Basilica). The setting is
remarkable, and the hotel has an excellent reputation.
Follow our directions below to find the hotel's entrance, which
is behind the Piazza San Marco in the Calle Larga San Marco. (Ignore the walking
route and transportation map on the hotel's own Web site, which are outdated.)
How to reach the Hotel Concordia from San Marco
As you leave the boat platform, turn right and walk along
the water. (Souvenir kiosks and a small public garden will be on your left.)
You'll cross a low metal ramp over a canal.
At the Piazzetta (a large open space with two stone
columns), turn left and walk into the Piazza San Marco.
Cross the Piazza San Marco and look for the first passage to
the right of the clock tower, on the north side of the Basilica.
Enter the passage and walk a few meters to the next corner.
Turn right into the
Calle Larga San Marco, where you'll see the Hotel Concordia's entrance on
the right side of the street.
From the Marittima cruise terminals:
Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the cruise
basin to the waterbus stop at San Marco Giardinetti.
Follow the directions above.
