“Venice - a truly magnificent destination”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We have just returned from our 2nd stay at Palace Bonvecchiati. We had a good room, which we had not paid any supplements for.... it was more than adequate, a good size, and very comfortable. Unfortunately it was very close to an Air Conditioning Extract which was extremely noisy no matter what time of day or night (on and off - not continual). That said, this is a great hotel, smooth service, a very pleasant bar, and a great, modern feel. Next time we would pay for a canal view (as we did last time we visited). The landing stage is a real bonus if you arrive or leave by water taxi (which I would totally recommend) so that you do not have to lug suitcases etc., through Venice. A brilliant City to visit, and this Hotel gives you all that you could need, including a superb location.

Room Tip: canal view

Despite this being written a while later, this is the best hotel I have ever been to.

The staff are friendly and eager to help - as it is quite a ways with your luggage. The rooms are beautifully finished, and I would recommend one on the canal. It is special to wake up in the early mornings and watch the ships go by. It is not quiet but the noise isn't disturbing at all.

The bathroom was especially beautiful with its antique look and marble flooring as well as sink.

There is a restaurant but we ended up eating outside. The front desk also provides excellent instructions as well as maps should you require.

Slippers, robes, etc. are all provided.

We spent 2 nights here and were pleased with the accommodations. The hotel adjoins its sister, the Hotel Bon. Which is where breakfast was served each day. We also ate lunch there, which was quite good. The Internet connection was fast, but not wifi, just a warning. The location is very good, close to all the well-known spots. The rooms are European, meaning they have many features, fixtures that are unfamiliar and take some learning. They don't seem to have the notion that they should explain these, though.

It is very nice and modern and located in the heart of venice. The food was ok but you have to dine at the hotel bonvecchiati not the palace. It was a very nice experience. The staff were helpfull. I enjoyed it very much. Thank You!

I could not agree more with July 6 review. Rooms were clean and spacious and location was excellent only 2 minutes from St marks square. Wifi and breakfast were a problem but benefits far outweighed the small negatives. We took private taxi from hotel to airport and highly recommend departing that way.

My husband, two teenagers and I just returned from Italy. We stayed at the Palace Bonvecchiati for one night. Our rooms were modern, roomy and clean and right on the canal. It reminded me a little of Disneyland as the gondolas were in a constant line right under our windows. It was entertaining to look down on all the people. The location was great. My suggestion though is to splurge for the water taxi to pick you up right at the back door and avoid the rolling of suitcases through the streets of tourists. We did not do so on the way there but did on the way back to the train station and we were very glad. Complaints= breakfast was not good. Eat elsewhere. The wireless service you have to pay for and it did not even work. What they don't tell you is that they don't refund your money even if that is the case. Just skip the technology and enjoy the city.

Room Tip: Ask for room on the canal for ambience sake but know that the canal is used for garbage service, del...

The arrival was great. The location was ideal. Our room was not ready, which I expected as we had arrived following a cruise. We had a guide and he stayed for the check in, I wanted to make sure we were not sent to the "sister hotel". The room was modern and roomy. The bed was fine. Bath was clean and roomy. The breakfast was not outstanding. I don't eat wheat, my choices were really limited. The bacon looked really greasy. No omelette station. The front desk was helpful. Movie was 7 euro, which frankly we were pretty tired after the cruise so we watched a movie to rest up a bit one afternoon.
