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
Great hotel with great staff, highly recommended. However we still don't understand that we pay EUR191 per night during our stay on 4-6 Jan 2019 booked through Agoda. While actually when we check the price is lesser than that.
got a good deal for pb on agoda. hotel must have been refurbished in the last few years. rooms are ok. no open bar in the building itself; they are referring to the bar/restaurant in hotel bonvecchiati. location is good - very close to rialto and san marco.
breakfast is also not too bad. overall 3 stars only given for the bad price/value relationship in venice.. everything is just ridiculously expensive.
This hotel is modern and the executive room is large, quiet and comfortable. The hotel is 5 minutes walking to both San Marco Square and Rialto. The breakfast is included. The service is warm and efficient.
There is no charm included. Nothing is special or unique, but with the demand for well-located hotels in Venice, I would recommend Palace Bonvecchiati as a good choice for travelers looking for a practical and well-managed hotel.
This hotel is in a great location, and the staff are incredibly helpful in a city that can be hard to navigate. Our room was very comfortable.
We had a "canal view" room, which offered lovely views of a canal where gondoliers guided people down the water. Admittedly, we also heard and saw garbage collection every morning as well.
The room was very spacious and even had a full walk-in closet.
They had lotion, shampoo and soap - but not conditioner.
The breakfast in the morning was very tasty and the hostess and staff were always very warm and friendly.
Generally speaking, we found it difficult to find water in Venice. It would have been nice to be able to get bottled water at the hotel.
My parents had previously stayed at this hotel and wanted to stay there again on their second trip to Italy, because it was comfortable and conveniently located. Additionally, we were constantly asking for recommendations for where to eat and were always given excellent suggestions within a short distance.
Great location, service. A great place to stay. The staff was very helpful. If the water level is good, you can have a water taxis drop you off at the hotels own dock. Also at the hotel there is a really nice restaurant.
