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
Stayed here two night pre cruise as part of a package offered bt the cruise line.
Room numbers were a little funky as the hotel is actually a merger of serveral buildings.
Nice room though, with a large bathroom and a tub. great included breakfast. Really would have liked the hotel to have a bar.
Took the water taxi from the train to the hotel. The ride was worth every Euro. We arrived at the hotel, never had to touch our bags. The check was easy. We went up to our room which was big compared to other rooms in Italy and the A/C cranked cold air. This was a big point since it was 96 degrees outside. The hotel is walking distance from everything we wanted to see. We didn’t do it but if you want to take a gondola ride there is a “station” right outside the hotel. The hotel breakfast is good. I know it is a little expensive but the water taxi to the airport is worth it. The hotel will arrange it if you want to do it.
Rooms are nice, a bit small. Has an old world charm. Even uses actual room keys on a tassle which you can hand in before heading out. Windows have wood shutters that look out to a small canal that was noisy during garbage pick up. Lots of murano glass chandeliers. Took a private boat right to hotel so we didnt have to lug any luggage thru streets. Continental breakfast was good.
The location is enough to make the experience amazing. But besides that, rooms are very comfortable, breakfast is good and the restaurant serves good food. Very close and walking distance to all the best atractions in Venice
This is classy, friendly and enjoyable property. And nothing could beat the location. It's within easy walking distance of most of the best attractions. Their front desk is extremely helpful and gracious. Probably the most enjoyable property we've stayed at in our several trips to beautiful Venice.
