Hotel Concordia is literally across a walkway from St. Mark's Basilica. Our hotel room - a junior suite - had a view into St. Mark's Square from the balcony. We drank coffee and watched the people in the square at all hours of the day and night. The location was also incredibly convenient. We could always find our way back because it's so easy to find St. Mark's from anywhere else.
The room itself was also amazing. There were three levels with steps leading to the balcony and a small, but beautifully appointed, bathroom. The room was small, but it was cozy rather than stifling. They made good use of the available space.
More than anything else, though, the service would be incentive to stay there again. The staff was wonderful. Giuliano, the concierge, helped us with everything from transportation to tour reservations. He is one reason we had such an amazing stay. The front desk staff never once forgot our names or room number, no matter the time or day. Some weren't even on duty when we checked in. They answered all of our questions patiently and thoroughly. The porters and doormen also went out of their ways to help us with anything we needed. The only disappointing thing was that everyone spoke excellent English, so I wasn't forced to practice my Italian.
The hotel was also really nice. It was meticulously clean. The little, twisty hallways were fun. The public areas were sleek and modern. Restaurants, cafes, stores, and ATMs were literally steps from the front door. Even so, entering the foyer was like stepping into a quiet oasis.
We will absolutely stay at Hotel Concordia when we return to Venice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The rich, multicoloured marble and elegant lines of the St. Mark's Basilica brightened by the sunlight, reflecting on the windows of Hotel Concordia, the only hotel in the city of the Doges directly in St. Mark's Square, beside the Neo-classical See of the patriarch of Venice.A building that has been accommodating Italian and foreign visitors to Venice for more than three centuries. The Beggiato family has been expertly running the hotel over three generations, adding its own tradition since the start of the 20th century when Mr. Tiberio Beggiato turned what was a small guesthouse into a renowned hotel. Ever since, the women of the Beggiato family have kept the family tradition alive, proficiently merging customs and innovation, tending to the premises as they tend to their homes. ... more less
