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 booked a standard room and I was surprised at how large it was. Our room overlooked the canal, and I was not bothered by noise, even though there was a party going on in the restaurant right below our room. Good variety at breakfast. Staff might not be the friendliest, but that seems to be standard for Italy.
Don’t expect a modern hotel, this is a beautiful quaint hotel 5mins from the gondolas, 6 minutes from st marks square. Service is superb, breakfast is tasty and there is plenty of it. When we come back to Venice we will definitely stay here again. There is also a great shop about 2mins away that sells reasonably priced pizza slices , sandwiches and drinks. Trip lasted 5 days. Couldn’t have asked for more
What a memorable experience to take the water taxi right to our hotel and to the airport. The hotel is in a perfect location. An easy walk to St. Marks Square, Rialto bridge area for the main canal boats and venture through the narrow store alleys to experience local restaurants. As other reviews stated, it is a unique experience for our room to be on the second floor, but, take the elevator to the third floor and then walk down a few steps to our second floor room. We were unable to get the English speaking TV channel - but who watches TV when you are in Venice! Enjoy the experience of staying in a lovely 1790 hotel. Clean rooms, nice staff and lovely hotel. Our room faced the front of the hotel. It was enjoyable to open the window and hear "Oh Sole Mio" being sung while the gondola drove next to our hotel. Stay at this hotel. You will not be disappointed.
We only had a day and half in Venice and wanted a place to stay that was convenient to all the things in Venice we wanted to see. This place was perfect! Very close to just about everything. Restaurants, historic places, gondola rides (right outside the hotel you can pick up a gondola ride)..shopping...amazing place.
We were very pleased with the hotel. The room was nice. Everything in Venice is older and so is the hotel. The location is wonderful and hotel staff very helpful and nice.
We came on a tour and the breakfast buffet was extensive and varied and really good although the line one day was so long with another tour group.
We didn’t eat at the restaurant but heard the food was very good.
