The four-star Hotel Bucintoro occupies a spectacular setting on Venice's waterfront, away from the worst of San Marco's high-season crowds but within an easy walk of the Doge's Palace, St. Mark's Basilica, and other tourist landmarks.
It faces a small square next to the Naval History Museum where megayachts, hotel barges, and other large boats are often moored.
As you leave the Alilaguna Linea Blu and ACTV waterbus pier, turn right and walk to the stone bridge.
Cross the bridge.
The Hotel Bucintoro will be straight ahead of you, immediately after the Museo Storico Navale.

Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the cruise basin to Arsenale. (The price will be about half of the airport fare.)
Follow the directions above.
Leave the terminal by the main doors and walk to the wooden bridge.
Cross the bridge and walk a short distance to the vaporetto station.
Take the No. 2 vaporetto (water bus) in the direction of San Zaccaria.
Get off at the Zaccaria stop, turn right, and walk along the waterfront until you reach the Hotel Bucintoro. You'll need to cross three bridges, but otherwise the walk is over level pavement.
