Palace Bonvecchiati

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Palace Bonvecchiati is a beautiful hotel -- clean and classy -- near the piazza San Marcos (a very convenient and special location). Breakfasts offered a good variety and was excellent. We also dined at the restaurant in the hotel ("La Terrazza") and it was delicious. The caprese salad was both beautiful and delicious. I had the seafood risotto alla pescatora, and it was fantastic. Well worth the visit.

Fine, but nothing special. The hotel has a modern look which we liked. The location is near Piazza San Marco. But our “deluxe” room was small, and the shower had no curtain so water got everywhere. We were in room 255 which was over the alley and it got very very loud at times (bring ear plugs!), plus the walls seem thin because we could hear the tv next door. On the positive side, the closet was huge and the mattress was comfortable. Breakfast was nothing special - basically what you would see at a 3 star Hilton or Marriott; cereal, fruit, pastries, scrambled eggs and a meat and cheese plate. Coffee was good though. They don’t tell you this but, if you ask, you can get eggs made to order. The gym was small: 1 treadmill, a bike, a small set of dumbbells, a few machines. But the “spa” is a joke (I don’t think the sauna was even turned on), the water dispenser was empty and it didn’t have the amenities of a 4 star hotel. Maybe that’s just how it is in Venice.

newly furnished rooms through walking distance from Rialto bridge and San marco with many dining options around.staff very helpful and very very clean rooms.Could be considered as 5 star.Breakfast was rich.Highly recommend it.

Venice - the city of water and gondola's ever where you can see. The hotel is nice and on the modern side. If you were looking for the traditional European hotel, I don't really think this is it; however the rooms were very nice and we were fortunate enough to have a really large terrace, with outdoor seating/furniture. I really enjoyed the hotels, on our group tour, not all being the same. I think the terrace was as large as our room, with views of mostly the rooftops of the buildings in front of us. However there was a small window of opportunity on the one side of the terrace, where you could actually just sit there and watch the gondola's glide by - now that was the view I really wanted to see. And even though it was small to us, it was still spectacular, since the rest of our group were not fortunate enough to have anything exterior (balconies and/or terraces).... From this location, we could walk in town and go for a gondola ride, or pick up a water taxi to visit the nearby glass makers, etc. Again, great location and amenities.

except one thing, a little glass sheld in the bathroom that could prevent splashing water all over . everting alse is wonderful. one can say that this is minor, very minor, but when you go out of the shower and every thing is wet it not so wonderful. the service is exselet, the room is very comfortable, the breakfast is nice and the hotel is very modern.

Great location (5 mins walk from the Rialto Bridge). Very large & well appointed rooms. Nice & helpful staff, smartly dressed, particular the staff in the restaurants. The breakfast was very nice with plenty of staff on hand to help. Would return again

We stayed as part of a tour of Northern Italy and were here for three nights. The location is right in the centre of all the tourist hotspots which could be a major selling point if mobility is an issue. If not then stay further out as Venice is not a large place and everything is walk or boatable. The rooms were clean and well presented but not overly large or ornate, pretty much what I would expect from a middle ranking hotel. The breakfast was again pretty good but I have had far better elsewhere and the food mostly catered to American tourists with very little that was traditionally Italian. Overall not bad but not worth going back to.

Couldn't have found a more perfect location for my short trip to Venice. I was only there for 2 1/2 days to see a piece of the Biennale. The hotel was lovely; the staff helpful; and as I said, the location ideal.

A few minor negative experiences: First, when we noticed the room type was not as specified, the concierge lady was quick pointed out, "no, no, you made a mistake, it was not specified in your reservation." But when we went back to our email reservation, there was no mistake, somehow their system did not capture the right booking information; either way, computer systems could have made a mistake but her defensive attitude did not reflect well on the service staff team. Second, we noticed our bathroom didn't have any conditioner, so we went to the reception desk to ask to have some, and the male concierge staff (around 22:30 on a Sat night shift 10/28) stared down at us blankly, paused, and said, "I understand what you mean, but you have it." And we replied, no we don't, that's why we came down to grab some." He looked angry, so we left the desk, but there was someone else who showed up at our room, the man brought shampoo and bath gel bottles but no conditioner, instead, he went to our a/c and said, also in a frustrated and somewhat angry tone, "look, this is conditioner." We were amused by the series of interchanges, so we just replied, "no worries, good night" and sent him off. The person mumbled something in Italian and then walked out. Third, a minor suggestion for a $400/night room, there was no tea or coffeemaker in the room, somewhat surprising given the price they were charging us. Somewhat of a bummer not to have that convenience after a chilly night walk out in the town. Definitely well-warned. We believe during summer season, this place goes for about 300 euro per night still, probably not worth it. We did notice during low season in Nov and early Dec that the prices drops to 200 euro per night, maybe when it's the level of that price that's what this hotel is worth. I've stayed at hotels charging 150 per night with much better service. With that said, the only upsides are that the housekeeping service does a good job and the breakfast selection at the next door Hotel Bonvecchiati's shared restaurant was a good selection of hot and cold breakfast. Daytime staff were generally friendly.

This hotel is an easy walk to most of the things you would like to see in Venice. The hotel is very well appointed and has a staff that is very well trained. The rooms are updated with a large walk in closet. The included breakfast was average to slightly above average.
