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
Stayed for 3 nights in May in a junior suite which was spacious, with a large bathroom. Everything was super clean, excellent service, lovely breakfast. No view from our room, but the hotel is right in the centre of Venice, short walk to San Marco and Rialto, and there is a water dock if you want to arrive by water taxi. Perfect.
The hotel was well situated and access to all the major tourist sites was easy. The hotel was very accommodating. The room was spacious and overlooked one of the canals. The bathroom was large and the shower was not the typical cramped European style. We had a very enjoyable, comfortable stay here.
We stayed at this hotel as part of a (small) tour. I was surprised by the modern decor but it grew on me. They had an excellent breakfast, the rooms were quiet and comfortable, and when I left my medicine in our room, they mailed it to our next hotel very efficiently.
Also, they have a lovely restaurant.
In some respects, the location IS great--it's very close to Piazza San Marco. But it's also in an incredibly dense and crowded area of the city. We usually stay in the Dorsoduro sestiere, where it's quieter and there's more space, and I prefer it.
But if you're looking for a high-end, modern hotel close to the center, this might work for you.
We only had 2 days to spend in Venice, and this hotel was perfect for the trip. You can't beat the location, 2 minute walk to St. Marcos Square. We arrived by water taxi - can't beat the experience of coming off the boat and into the lobby! The room layout was nice, great AC, very comfortable bed. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the included breakfast was good. We would stay here again.
This hotel is very well located in the heart of Saint Marcus "sestriere" (Area). About 250 metres from the famous Saint Marcos square.
The rooms are nice and comfortable for european standards with nice air conditioning and well provided mini bar.
Breakfast if also nice with cold cuts, several cheses, scrambled eggs and bacon and four different kind of juices.
The staff is very helpful and attentive.
Price in may in the upper 400 euros
