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
The location of this hotel is outstanding. A 5 minute walk to Rialto Bridge and Water taxi. Near co-op for good selection of snacks and beverages for your room. Within walking distance to St Marks Square. Great breakfast. Staff were very friendly and professional.
I stayed with my wife and daughter prior to embarking on a Holland America Cruise. The location of the hotel was ideal for a short walk to St Marks Square. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a wide selection of high quality foods. Would definitely recommend this charming hotel!
Good classic style hotel, with nice touches in service and details, and very good valued, as if to relish experience of staying at the nearby Luna Hotel Baglioni without paying the price. Close to both Rialto and St Marco, about half way between, thus good location. A very good stay.
I would give this hotel five stars for location and 3.5 for the hotel itself. The hotel is right off the Rialto vaporetto stop and was within a short walking distance of St. Mark’s square. We booked a Diamond Deluxe room and were very happy with our canal view. Our room was nice, comfortable and clean. The hotel also had good, free, WiFi service and a nice breakfast with hot and cold options.
This is definitely an older hotel and it feels like you are stepping back in time to the 70s. The furniture and the carpet in the lobby and hallways seemed old, and the furniture in our room also didn’t seem like it had been updated. The bathroom had an antiquated hair dryer and a weird shower (it had a funny plastic wrap around area in the bathtub and the fixtures were a little hard to figure out). The front desk staff was friendly and spoke English.
The book in our room said the hotel has a gym at one of their sister properties but you had to make a reservation to use it.
We stayed here in early February and were pleased with our room, but I am not sure we would have liked it as much if we had not stayed in one of the larger Diamond Deluxe rooms.
We had a fabulous room, the staff were very friendly and the breakfast ok. Having read some of the reviews we were concerned but it was amazing. Very old but super room, looking over the canal on two sides, not noisy at all and very comfortable. (Make sure you book the best room you can rather than trying to be cheap.)
