A short amble from Piazza San Marco and the famous Rialto Bridge sits Palace Bonvecchiati – a chic Design Hotel with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, in the heart of ancient Venice, Italy’s romantic floating city.
The modern, edgy décor reveals a flair for contemporary art, with paintings and sculptures peppering the hallways and the lounge. Head up to the fourth floor and you’ll find a spa sanctuary with a huge Jacuzzi, a steam bath, a gym and a lavish list of treatments. And there’s a glass water door that leads straight out onto the canal, where you can catch a gondola and glide along the Venetian waterways.
Deluxe Double rooms are decked out in rich furnishings in a classic statement hue, like scarlet or ocher, framed by a huge leather headboard. They look onto the street.
Watch the gondolas glide below you as you dine at La Terrazza Restaurant, which overlooks the canal, just minutes from Saint Marks Square. The restaurant serves a selection of traditional Venetian dishes. There’s also a daily American breakfast buffet, which has a wide range of fresh fruit, croissants and juice.
You’ll have access to the sauna, steam bath, whirlpool tub, gym and treatment facilities at this luxury spa. You can book a stress-melting massage and a range of beauty treatments, too.
You’ll be staying in central Venice, just off Piazza San Marco and close to the historic Rialto Bridge. Venice has been a favorite spot for tourists since the grand tour of the mid-17th century, and it has remained virtually unchanged since then. It is an absolute must-see destination and boasts some of the finest architecture and art of Europe. The Doge’s Palace and Basilica of San Marco on San Marco Square are among the top attractions in the city. However, with its central area alone being comprised of 118 islands and hundreds of winding alleyways, the best way to experience Venice is to set off on foot and see where you emerge. The Scuola Grande di San Rocco and the Jewish Ghetto are definitely worth a visit, as is the Rialto Bridge and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum – perhaps the city’s sole bastion of modernity.
How to Get There
Two years later, we came back to Venice and, once again, were pleasantly surprised by our stay at Palace Bonvecchiati! Outstanding service, great spacious rooms, brilliant location, literally a few minutes away from Piazza San Marco! Absolutely recommended!! Looking forward to coming back already!!
great location to be in - close to both attractions just a few minutes walking
only problem we faced was getting back to the train station thru the public transport - was a busy time in afternoon and all the boats were crowded - bargained for a taxi and reached in time
friendly staff will defiantly stay again or recommend
My wife and I had a wonderful private tour with Paola of Murano and Burano, skip Torcello, you need the time for the other two islands. The glass factory was interesting and we purchased a large piece of glass, without much pressure. Burano was beautiful and colorful and the lace works were magnificent, we did not buy anything and no one said a word. Paola was a key to our trip. She was knowledgeable, friendly and added a real personal touch. The boat ride was fun too, being Private was well worth the extra cost. Highly recommend this over the crowded streets of Venice.
