Travel Blogs from Venice
We arrived Tessera in the afternoon and took the bus to Mestre to catch a ferry to Venezia, walked to Ca Bonvicini. A small hotel, very convenient location, walking distance to the Canal. Venice is beautiful, picturesque in every angle, clean and people are very friendly.
When I travel, the local market is always my first stop. You get a …
As I said in our last post, when I woke up this morning I was not in pleasant bodily moods from eating the fresh shrimp the night before. I did get to enjoy a nice long time on the porcelain throne though. That mixed with the fact that I had a slight bit of a cold (I'm ok mom, don’t worry) it wasn’t my most favorite morning of the trip …
This morning we enjoyed a quick breakfast of again croissants and cappuccinos in our room before we quickly packed our bags. The check out went much more smoothly than in Rome and soon enough we were on our way to the train station. Brooke even felt that the walk to the station felt shorter than before, maybe she's just getting more used to it. It …
... to a glass blower plying his trade. It was amazing to watch, he made it look so easy, first he made a vase then a figurine of a horse, in the space of about 15 minutes. My guess is its like clay turning, looks easy when someone else does it but if I were to have a shot there would be a god awful mess. After the demonstration they took us up to the showroom, so many beautiful pieces. My favourite was a tree with tropical birds on it. It stood about 3 foot tall. I was ...
... worry about everything! Oh god! Luckily we don't need to spend all our time with them. We could only get the bus to the edge of Venice because there are no roads on the island of Venice. You can only get around by walking or catching a water taxi around the canals. Very cool way to travel! We first had a walking tour with Time our guide. Our first stop was a lace making shop. Boring!! It was interesting to hear how long it takes to make a piece of lace though. Ages! Next stop was a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' Bonvicini Venice
Definately Recommend this B&B
Just returned from Venice. Ca' Bonvicini was superb. Could not find fault with the establishment. The rooms were beautifully decorated in the Venetian style and very spacious. The bathrooms were modern which we liked. The location was very convenient being only 5-10 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They kept the rooms for us even though our flight was cancelled and we didn't arrive until the next day at 11pm. Sabina also recommended a restaurant for my wife's birthday which didn't dissappoint. If you stay at Ca' Bonvicini go to Antiche Carampane. It's only 1 minute from the B&B and it has excellent seafood and we were well looked after.
Wow! This hotel is incredible! The price was right, the room was perfect with a nice view on the canal. We loved taking our breakfast in the room (we put the table near the window so we could see the canal while eating). The service was great. The location was perfect (everything is close). We got engaged in Venice and we will get married in July 2007. We already have reserved our room for our honeymoon in July!
Great 1st stop in Italy!
3 of us stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast at the end of Sept 2006 and ended up with the room pictured on the hotel website. The hotel is easy to find from the vaporetto stop, located in a quieter area of Venice but only minutes from the Rialto Bridge and a 15 minute walk to St. Marks Square. The room was spacious, vanity mirror in the room, an amazing bathroom, double shower heads, great water pressure. Great value for the money we paid (195 euros/night) and included a typical Italian breakfast of coffee/tea/juice, croissants/rolls, melba toast/nutella, and yogurt. Sabina is very helpful and even confirmed our next hotel and made our train reservations for Florence. Bring your own alarm clock because we asked for a wake-up call and never got it!!!
I made on-line reservations for two rooms at Ca' Bonvicini for a three night stay -- one for my husband and myself, and a second for three family members. Sabina, the manager, was quite helpful during the reservation process and was on-hand to welcome us to the B&B.
My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for a quick 3 night stay. All I can say is that this was by far the best deal on our entire trip. We asked for the room that was featured on the website and it was spectacular for only 10 Euro a night more. The shower was huge with two large showerheads which complimented a very clean bathroom. The Room itself was very large with a great view down a small canal. The bed was a little uncomfortable because it was two twins stuck together but that didn't matter. Breakfast was on time and suitable. Staff was incredible. The stayed up late to accomodate our late arrival. They also gave us some amazing recommendations, including the restaurant that gave us the best meal of our entire European trip. I highly recommend this hotel/B & B and hope that I get a chance to go back very shortly.
My partner and i stayed here for 3 days last month. The directions to the house were perfect and we found it easily enough - for venice. Our room (not featured on website) was a little on the small side for 2 people, however it and the bathroom were spotless and beautifully decorated. We found the lack of any public area confining. We were given a key to the main door as there was rarely anyone at reception. There was no alternative to sitting in the bedroom. Breakfast consisted of 2 cups of tea/coffee- cold by the time they reached the room, and packeted croissant, toast and biscuits. There was very little room to sit at the small table to eat. Also we felt eating breakfast from packets was not great. The location is perfect - not far from any of the main sights and yet off the tourist track. However we would prefer accommodation which had at least a separate dining area and ideally a little lounge/ bar to sit in, returning in the evening after a long days sightseeing. When we met Simona she was very helpful and friendly. Ca Bonvicini is perfect accommodation for those whose preference is for B&B rather than a small hotel.
CLEAN, COSY, CONVENIENT
Venice is wonderful, we finished off our honeymoon there!! The Ca Bonvicini has only been open 6 months or so, it is really clean and modern but with italian charm...booking was straigt forward (direct with the hotel), breakfast served in your room was really nice. A double room was100 euros for the basic room, but it had all you need for the time you spend in there. It is only a five minute walk to rialto bridge, and is really close to a water taxi stop. Looks over a pretty little canal. Definately reccomend for value and confort is a really nice cosy b&b to return to after a days sightseeing! Their website is... ----
My husband and I arrived in Venice late in the evening(bad idea) and got hopelessly lost.A very charming fellow from Ca'Bonvicini kindly came and found us and walked us to the hotel.Now that's what I call service!
Elegant B & B in good location
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights during our travels around Italy, and really enjoyed our stay here.
The room was immaculate and tastefully decorated in Venitian style. We were pleasantly surprised to have access to our own roof-top terrace which gave us an additional room for admiring the views over breakfast and before-dinner drinks.
Although we loved this place, we did feel that the breakfast needed much improvemnet and was really unacceptable given the price we paid for our stay.
Indeed, this is only a B & B and not a Hotel as listed, but we would definately recommend this as a place to stay, just remember to request the Terrace Room, and maybe eat out for beakfast.
My wife and I (mid-20s) stayed here for our one year anniversary in early September. This establishment was stated on the website as a "hotel", but it is actually a bed and breakfast, and it did not live up to expectations given the price we paid. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful and the room was very clean and we had access to the rooftop terrace from our room.
