... serves authentic Italian food.
Monday we spent most of the day on Venice Island. We wandered off of the beaten path and explored some of the backstreets of Venice. We had wanted to do this so we could get a feel of what Venice was like for the locals. We visited the Rialto Bridge and San Marco square and of course, ate some more Gelato. We also saw the Bridge of Sighs and rode our first water bus. Everything in Venice is ...
I really have quite a lot of catching up to do, but simply have not had the time. On Sunday morning, I left San Gemini, fighting back tears after sending some friends off to the station and then leaving myself several hours later after having one last cappucino at Bar Centrale. One of the Greek instructors gave me a ride to Terni, where I caught a hot crowded train to Orte and changed to one bound for Florence. I arrived several hours later, and walked to the apartment ...
... from the vent. Not long later, Bryan and I converted our seats into a cot of sorts (they slide down to meet in the middle). The trick is, the "bed" was not much wider than Bryan's shoulders. But we slept, head next to each others' feet on and off the rest of the night. And so did the three other people in our compartment.
When we finally pulled into Venice, we could see our cruise ship sitting in port. As we pointed it out to each ...
... had an hours wait for our train to Venice. On this train we were seated next to 2 school teachers from Sydney. Lots of mixed farms on the way – most were grapes, kiwifruit, maize and wheat. This was the best train we have been on so far. Caught a water taxi to our hotel – 60 euro but much better than swimming as you ...
... She didn't speak a lick of English so our broken conversations involved me using Spanish, her answering in Italian, and an interesting mixture of hand gestures and head shaking to come to the agreement that I could rent a space in her attic to spend the night. She earned her nickname from her ability to sit perfectly still in front of a blank TV screen for hours with her death-shroud-like shawl until the phone rang, at which point she would promptly rise from the dead to run and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Concordia Venice
Great family room and private terrace!!!!!
We stayed in the family room with our two kids. What a great location with an incredible view of the Basillica. It has a private terrace with a nice table that seats 6 people with an unbelievable view of the Church. I highly recommend this hotel, especially if you are traveling with kids and ask for the family room with the private terrace!!
Great family room
We stayed at the Concordia in January of 2003. The location is super - right off St. Marks Square. We are 2 adults and 3 kids and they had the most amazing family room. It was a duplex, with a king bed and bathroom downstairs and an upstairs "attic" with 3 twin beds. The room also had a terrace that overlooked the bell tower on the square. We paid 320 Euros a night, which included breakfast for 5 and tax. I thought that was very reasonable, especially for Venice, which seems to be a very expensive city. I read the negative comments that other people wrote, but I felt that the breakfast was just fine and the people who worked there weren't pushy. I totally recommend this hotel to anyone - especially if you are traveling with kids!
A great place to stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Concordia. The rooms were beautiful and the location is ideal. The staff was very good, with the desk clerks being especially helpful. I would definitely stay there again.
Concordia wonderful hotel
I spent seven days at the Hotel Concordia. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful and considerate. I had been injured by a water taxi and the hotel staff went out of their way to be of service. The hotel is beautiful and it is located on Saint Mark's square. Very convient to all the sights.I highly recommend this hotel.
Just came back from 3 nights there. Excellent hotel. reasonible prices for venice. nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Proberbly the best location in Venice, would stay there again.
Concordia is a nice place
We stayed at the Concordia for our first night in Venice. I thought this was a fine hotel. I loved the decour in my room. The room was clean. The Concergie was friendly and knowledgable. No Internet. I'd stay here again.
We didn't find it that bad.
Contrary to the previous two reviews, we did get a complimentary drink and 'nibblies'. Of course you are offered the 'free' trip to Murano glassworks and the walking tour of Venice. But you don't have to go, you can say no. As it was, we did go to Murano, watched some fabulous glass-blowing, were shown the showroom, but didn't buy anything. We also didn't take the walking tour as it was too expensive for us. And lets face it, Venice is easy to walk around. We did however, get them to organise a Gondola ride as it was the same price as others we had enquired about. Our room was lovely and even though it overlooked the back alley, was quiet as the windows were double-glazed. The location is great; near Piazza St Marco, St Mark's Basilica, the jetty etc etc. I've stayed in worse places for the same money.
Avoid This Place
I found this place on the Internet, last minute as we decided to go to Venice on a whim for 1 night while my wife and I were in Florence.
It cost 130 Euros. The room was like a shoe box. Even though the hotel was empty, they escorted us to the bar until the room was "ready". Here, they offered us some free, stale pate. It was gross. I took 1 bite and thought I was going to puke. Then they offered us a drink, which we thought was free, but they charged us $4.20 Euros or $6. What a scam. Then they held our passports and wouldn't give it back until I made a major fuss. Every time we left the hotel, the pushy concierge and front desk person tried to push us to buy various tours and/or eat in their restaurant. I've never been constantly harrassed like this in a hotel before.
People stay here because of its great location by the Piazza San Marco but I would avoid at all costs because the people are really creepy.
PS - As I went to the restrooms, my wife saw them put the pate that she didn't eat and the one's i partially bit into, back into the buffet trays that they used for lunch.
Isn't worth the money
I was promised (via e-mail) a free welcome drink, a 10% reduction on the dinner, a free entrance to the Venice casino, ... and I didn't get any of these 'advantages'. I had to pay for the welcome drink, I did not get the 10% discount, etc .... .
Moreover, having to pay over $2 for a soft boiled egg and over $2 for a freshly squeezed orange jus is a complete outrage ! I have already spent some time in quite a number of less expensive hotels where I did not have to pay extra for any warm breakfast !
The room we stayed in (room 308) was very small, the staff was friendly, but once checked out didn't seem to bother to be friendly anymore, ...
To conclude: we paid over $300 per night, but it wasn't worth the money and I would certainly NOT go back to this hotel anymore.
