This is a great hotel in a fantastic city! Yes it's expensive, but hey this is Venice. Warm, friendly staff always willing to answer questions and offer suggestions. Rooms were very clean and comfortable and location was great. We splurged on a water taxi leaving...More
Great location - just a minute stroll from from Piazza San Marco! Wander the square, see the Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the library, Correr museum & look out at the lagoon, just moments after leaving your hotel. So close to all the action, but tucked...More
We stayed in the Rialto Suite and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s perfect for three people. Close to basilica San Marco and the plaza, the hotel is perfectly located for access to city tour boats and shopping. We even had an unusual photo of four sets...More
My husband and I added 2 nights to an Italy tour. After much research, we settled on Columbina Hotel and couldn't have been happier. From Marco's help months in advance with the booking and arranging transportation to the hotel and later to the airport, to...More
A lovely compact hotel. Our room overlooked the canal. It was spacious and well appointed. It was close to St Marks square, shops, cafes and bars. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

If you are looking for the water bus, then ask for a vaporetto, those are much bigger and have dedicated stops, there is one in front of the train station. If you arrive by plane, you would take a conventional bus or a conventional taxi to Piazzale Roma, and then from there you can take a vaporetto. For the vaporetto, you have to purchase a ticket in advance, and validate it before boarding.
Private water taxis are also available across from the train station and from the airport, but you have stated that you do not want those, they are much smaller boats.
The Hotel Colombina concierge makes great restaurant recommendations.
I can't recall whether the main hotel has an elevator or not. You'll need to check with them. If you're located in the annexe next door to the hotel then, no it doesn't. The stairs are quite steep and you need to be fit... More
I can't recall whether the main hotel has an elevator or not. You'll need to check with them. If you're located in the annexe next door to the hotel then, no it doesn't. The stairs are quite steep and you need to be fit particularly if you're located the upper floors.
