Its our 4th stay in this hotel. Its buzy and popular with groups so always buzy but because of its location very quiet. You're 5 minutes walk from the buzz of the St Mark's square and the Public water taxi station. Private taxi boat can reach the backdoor of the hotel without problem. Breakfast is substantial. Restaurant very good but you have many to choose from close by.

Spent a lovely few days at this hotel. The location was excellent within a very short distance of St Marks Basilica in one direction and the Rialto Bridge in the other. The room was very well decorated and spotlessly clean and the breakfast was very good, with all tastes catered for. We found the staff friendly, attentive and helpful. The only thing missing was the availability of free wi-fi, but otherwise it was everything we had hoped for.

Deception. They show pictures of your room when you book that are beautiful, but when we got there they put us in a small, cramped room with a wet room. No nice marble counters, bathtub or beautiful stainless steel.
Also, on their website they say that guests have access to the sauna, steam room and turkish baths in their connected sister hotel. By available they mean limited booking for 15 euro for 30 minutes to use 1 of the 3.
Finally, the 6 euro an hour to use the wireless internet connection is appalling.

this hotel is somehow rated at 4 stars, id give it 2 and a half.

The breakfast and location were the lone bright spots.

Just returned from the Venice Carnivale having stayed at the Hotel Bonvecchiati - a wonderful hotel, very welcoming and the staff couldn't do enough for us - will definitely stay there again. A very generous breakfast, elegant rooms, and in a great location.

My partner booked a break for us for my birthday as surprise so for once I didn't get to pick where we were going. Having found out we were going to Venice I was extremely excited as its always been somewhere I have wanted to go. We had an afternoon flight landed at 6pm and it was already dark so couldn't really see a lot. Luckily we had some help from a fellow traveller on how to book the water taxi, we had a 7 min walk from the airport to find our ride and then it took 1hr15mins to get to our hotel which was in the hussle and bustle part of San Marco, it was really easy to find out hotel once we got dropped off and took about 5mins you literally walk thru side streets which have shops bars restaurants and its like a maze I've never actually enjoyed getting lost but this I didn't mid at all ..... All I can say about the hotel was it was decorated how you would expect with a bit of renaissance the problem wasn't how it looked but how small the room we had was, you had to turn on your side to get down the side of the bed and it was hot all the time but the only way to cool the room was to open the shutters and this just made the room too cold, the bathroom was exactly the same and if you we're on the large side you wouldn't be able to get in it never mind get out of it We've been to a few hotels and have got to say this is the smallest one we have stayed in, but on the plus side breakfast was ok enough choice but if you got there at the wrong time then there was not enough tables to accommodate smaller parties, the staff well some of them were friendly others just miserable both my partner and I work in retail and love working with people maybe a few of these workers at this hotel could do a course in the English way of dealing with the customers,
Venice is the most amazing beautiful city that I've ever seen we had the best break an its truly a very romantic place to be with the one that you love, would I return to this hotel prob not, to be fair I would try their sister hotel looked a little more like our style, We definitely will at some point return to Venice it's now my no 1 destination...... Tip ... Haggle for your gondola but whatever you pay it's worth every penny ....

I was worried about having a room in the annex; no need. It was large with two balconies overlooking a canal. Nothing but the sounds of the gondolas passing and every amenity one could want in a well-appointed room.
The dining room is remarkable with Murano chandeliers, food is notably good. The precision of the staff at breakfast left no serving dish unfilled, no table marred with even one errant crumb. Their work was impressive, as was all the staff courteous, professional and personable. Front desk personnel were impeccable.
Bonvecchiati is not to be missed. Highly recommended.

My husband and I lead tours to Europe. This tour we took 15 guests to this fantastic hotel. It couldn't have been better placed. Situated on the main route - this brilliant hotel is only a few minutes walk to the Rialto and in the other direction - only a few minutes walk to St Marks Square.
Because we were with a group - we were able to see many of the rooms. Every one was beautifully appointed. The room size is excellent as are the fittings and bathrooms. Ours had an office facility in the room. Two wardrobes, comfortable chairs and a table. The breakfast room is very elegant and an experience. As is the breakfast itself. There are several stations offering numerous breakfast styles. The choice was endless and the service was always impeccable. There is a wet door in this hotel which means you can take a water taxi ride to the hotel door if you wish. This is a wonderful way of finishing a magical evening out. We took our group (all in venetian masks) across the lagoon in private water taxis to Burano where our restaurant Gato Nero awaited us. What a fantastic evening and a highlight as we crossed the lagoon just as the sun was going down. The restaurant is a must. This is the second time we have taken a group there. The our water taxi dropped us right in front of the restaurant. cocktails awaited us and to follow we had several courses of local cuisine. 5 stars to this restaurant too. The evening ended with out private water taxi ride home (organized by the helpful restaurant) - after a beautiful ride along the Grand Canale in the magical light of the Venice evening. We of course were delivered to the Bonvecchiati Hotel 'wet door"! Superb!
I would recommend this hotel and restaurant wholeheartedly. Our entire group of 15 voted this to be the best hotel of the tour.

Room Tip: All of the rooms we saw were excellent.
