A splurge, but definitely worth it for our first trip to Venice. Great location off St. Mark's Square made it easy to locate. The staff was exceptionally accommodating and friendly. The room was a decent size with lovely furnishings and the bathroom was modern and very well appointed, including jacuzzi tub. The breakfast buffet was included with our room and was very nice. The hotel staff was able to recommend very good restaurants for us.

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.

... in Italian. It's so much fun when you speak the language, they seem to get excited by it. I suppose most tourists don't speak any of the language. In fact most of our group didn't even learn please or thank you in Italian. When I can't speak the language I even learn it.
We bought gelati on the Rialto bridge and the lady told me to have a beautiful day in Italian. How lovely was that? It just made my day!!!
Next we went to see inside La basilica di San Marco. ...
... however, it is only her grade for which I strive. It is her approval alone I seek.
After last minute scurries of packing and lost seat assignments, we are right on time to: leave the Sulgrave, arrive at Kansas City International Airport, depart on USAir 4464 at 11:32 to Philadelphia, hunker down for last minute paperwork at the Admirals Club and, finally, to depart on USAir 714 at 6:35 for the overnight non-stop to Venice.

Tapas consisted of ham, cheeses, fish, anchovies, and eggplant. The only thing that was tough to eat was lard on a biscuit. But yes, we are it because we are in Venice!

... middle of the day. We walked up near the Arsenal (but didn't quite get there) for an hour, looking for somewhere to eat. We finally found a little cafe, full of locals, serving a choice of 2 dishes - lasagna or mixed tempura fired fish. The local colour would have been wonderful if the staff hadn't been run off their feet to serve everyone...and if the lasagna hadn't been still frozen in the middle. Oh well - feel that we were the only Aussies there this week!! By the time we got back ...
... me a second wind! Not even bothering to unpack, I left to explore. Venice with all of its winding streets and alleys and bridges seems like an easy place to get lost—so I took pictures of everything along the way, in case I needed to follow them to get back—ha! It’s actually not that difficult to find your way around—everything seems to eventually lead back to a main street. And the signage is pretty good—as long as you know where you are ...
