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
Fantastic hotel. Well positioned for all the main tourist attractions. Staff friendly, room was just perfect. Near st marks square, realto bridge. Rooms clean splendid amenities. Breakfast great. Would definitely recommend.
Nice option for a short stay in Venice. Location was great - arrived by boat and had a short walk to St Marco’s Square, as well as close access to the intricate smaller alleys and streets of Venice. Service was good, and our room was large and comfortable.
We were on a Gate One tour and stayed at this hotel for two extra nights. My travel agent booked us an upgraded deluxe double diamond room with canal view and we paid extra. When we first checked in and showed our room, it in no way resembled the rooms showed in the photos on line. It was very small and not "double diamond". When I went down to the front desk they said I was in a deluxe room but the manager helped out and found us a nicer room that was a little larger. Still not sure I was in the room I paid extra for but it was nice. Other than that, the hotel was in an excellent location and the staff warmed up to us. This hotel, like many others, caters to many tour and cruse groups so I can see why customer service sometimes is "trying". Our complimentary breakfast was good with a nice assortment of hot and cold foods.
The room we had was great and overlooked the canal so we could watch the gondolas go by our window- the occasional serenade! Only downside is that we were awoken every morning by construction taking place across the canal and they used a noisy Diesel engine. My husband was ready to switch rooms - but I liked looking at the gondolas. Spa and pool are available only by appointment and extra charge. Breakfast was marginal at best. Large selection- but hot food was cold. Hotel is focused on serving high end cruise crowd. Location is easy walk to San Marco and Rialto to bridge
This place was very nice! The room , the bathroom , the room service, the taxi pick up everything was awesome. A great location we will definitely stay here in Venice again. We highly recommend this place .
