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
We stayed for one night before a cruise, and our room was quiet, had lots of space and was quite comfortable. The included breakfast was more than satisfactory. The excellent location is the hotel's main feature, and enables easy walking to some of the main sights of Venice. The small lobby area can get very very crowded, with little seating, when groups have assembled for their departure. We would happily stay there again despite the premium price.
I was with a tour group and here for two nights. The hotel spans a small canal and it can be confusing to find your room. There are stairs to climb. My "single" room was so small I could not walk around the bed. It was also on a corner along a busy street so thankfully I was up a couple flights. Food is better outside the hotel. Staff were friendly and the room was clean.
Stayed 3 nights. Would have left but we were with a tour. Only good point was location. Easy access to St Marks and gondolas. Rooms are TINY and dingy. Accommodations were not 4 stars. I would give only 2 at best. So many better 4 star hotels near at less price. Beware staying here...... we were very disappointed.
Excellent address for a large group.. we were there for the Biennale with 80 architects! They have a big restaurant room in which we could all fit for a special dinner .. food was very good, Staff very friendly, helpful
Hôtel is situated very close to the piazza saint Marco and very convenient.. with access to the hotel boat taxi from the airport
A great hotel in centre of Venice. There is a 5 min walk to the square. It over looks the canal with gondolas passing windows.
Reception was a bit rude but think that’s just there nature. There is no parking in Venice, so don’t know why they advertise it, maybe it’s a joke?
Food is good, breakfast was usual continental but good. Staff could do with some training. All in all not bad, though you are paying premium rates.
