Follow in the footsteps of la dolce vita-seekers past with a charming stay at the four-star Hotel Bonvecchiati. Fittingly, for a hotel at home in one of the most historic cities in the world, this warm property has been welcoming travelers since 1790.
It’s not hard to see why the visitors have kept coming for more than 200 years. Hotel Bonvecchiati is perfectly located in the heart of the city, mere minutes from St. Mark’s Square. Right on the edge of the canal, with its own water landing, it houses a stylish Italian restaurant with an outdoor terrace overlooking the picturesque waterways – a perfect spot for sipping cocktails and watching the gondolas go by.
The hotel’s interiors follow a modern take on classical Venetian finery, with the rooms especially elegant. Elsewhere in the hotel, you’ll be struck by the quality of the fabrics and furnishings and the precious marble that adorns the welcoming lobby and relaxing bar areas – la dolce vita, indeed.
Superior rooms are decorated with traditional Venetian fabrics and furnishings, and come with all the modern conveniences you’d expect from a beautiful four-star hotel.
La Terrazza restaurant serves delicious Italian cuisine, including Venetian specialties, on its canal-side terrace. A plentiful American-style buffet breakfast is served each morning.
Staying just a short stroll from St. Mark’s Square and the Rialto bridge, and with a water taxi stand within oar’s length, you’ll find it easy to navigate Venice’s charming waterways and historic sights. Stop in at cafés frequented by the likes of Byron and Turner or take a trip to the nearby islands – Murano for glass and Burano for lace.
How to Get There
When we check in the room was so small two of us could not walk around bed and their was NO room for 2 suitcases. Asked for a larger room and were given one that was not much bigger and they charged us 30 euro for the upgrade!
Not going back to this hotel.
We had two nights in this wonderful old hotel. We just loved it. We had a wonderful room on a corner with views to 2 canals. Wonderful. The staff were great and helpful with directions. Very central to everything. Loved it.
Let us start with the good - great location. And now the bad: Room is old and extremely small. No room for luggage and full of tripping hazards. Wait for the elevator is an Italian past time. Staff is very offish and probably because of dealing with stupid tourist all the time. Our bed was a worn out marshmallow. Had dinner last night and we can make better Italian food. Wine was good. So glad we only spent on night.
Our stay at this hotel was for our 5th Wedding Anniversary and we would loved every minute of our stay in Venice. Our room was excellent, modern, spacious and very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was continental which was average and we had dinner once which we also thought was average. We thought the drinks were expensive compared to other places in Venice. The main restaurant was shut due to renovations so I can't comment on that but the terrace was lovely just being able to sit and let world walk by. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring it is less than a 5 minute walk to St. Marks square. We got a private water taxi from the airport to the hotels private jetty, which was amazing. If we visit Venice again we would stop here again.
The staff at the hotel are very professional and we were checked in as soon as we arrived. Our room was charming and very clean. The breakfast room was welcoming, and the spread was just enough to get us going for the day. The best feature of the hotel is its outstanding location. We could easily walk to all the sites of Venice but still feel that we were tucked away from the crowds at the Rialto Bridge. We will visit Venice again and the Bonvecchiati hotel will be our first choice to stay at.
