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 …
... 0.o we had to run to catch it. I got 2 rings and necklace for 4.50€. Sara got a necklace and earrings, post cards and some lace from burano where we saw some lace being shown. we got back to st marks square And started waking back to the hotel, we ate at a little bistro. I had escalopes in white wine and Sara had lasagna. Got a super headache so sadly I didn't eat much:( Walked home exploring all the little shops along the way - finally got home and showered.

... we finally find it it isn't on any normal street, wedged between two tall buildings is an extremely narrow street that leads to the hotel. The hotel room is quite spacious, considering the small entrance. The washroom facilities are very nice too. The last time Jason and I stayed in Venice our bathroom wasn't even in our room. We take the hotel's recommendation for a restaurant and head out ...

Venice was quite magical but even more at night!

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!!!
Lovely Little Hideaway
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.
Ca' Bonvicini is located within a 5 minute walk of the Rialto but is tucked away in a quiet little area slightly removed from the more "touristy" areas of Venice. Both of our rooms were very nicely decorated and quite comfortable. My parents' room was huge by European standards, with one double bed and one single bed. The room had a lovely glass chandelier and a shower with dual shower heads. My room was smaller, but was still more than adequate, and as an added bonus, it had its own private roof-top terrace. Each morning, we would ring Sabina, and she would bring us breakfast -- cappucinos (or lattes or coffee), warm rolls and croissants, and an assortment of spreads.
A few things to note about this hotel: 1) the front desk is only staffed for limited hours during the day; 2) the shower in our room (512) was quite small -- fine for us, but it could prove problematic for other guests; 3) there is no elevator or bellhop, so be prepared to carry your own bags up several flights of stairs. However, none of these facts bothered us in the least, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Should we return to Venice, we will absolutely stay at Ca' Bonvicini, and we recommend it highly to all.
Amazing location, great price, friendly and helpful staff
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.
Definately a b&b - not a hotel
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... ----
Charming little Bed and Breakfast.....
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!
Word of advice,if you plan on taking public transport from the airport as opposed to water taxi,don't bring a lot of lugguage.Very difficult navigating your way around the narrow streets and bridges and getting on board the vaporetti.We followed this advice from other travellers and brought wheeled baggage with us.
We loved the location of this hotel,once we knew our way around we found it to be very close to so many areas of importance.The big plus(for us anyway) was that you felt as though you were in a neighborhood of locals and not swamped by tourists.
Our room was lovely,very large by European standards and beautifully decorated.We had a nice sized bathroom with modern amenities and very clean.Loved the double shower.
I agree with one of the other reviews that the breakfasts are sparse.It was adequate for us as we are not big eaters of a morning.I did like having my breakfast delivered each morning though,it acted as a wake-up call for us.
There is a supermarket close by where you could pick up some extra supplies if needed,it's also fun to check out all the interesting goodies they have in there.
The staff couldn't have been more wonderful.We mostly saw Sabina as she bought us our breakfast and helped us out with maps and local information.She works incredibly hard and is very knowlegeable.
With regards to cost,sure it's a little more than one would pay for a B&B in other parts of the world,but hey you're in Venice.It's a fairly expensive destination and if you want to go there you pretty much have to check the budget at the door.That's probably why most people only stay a few days.......but what a few days!
I would definately stay at Ca' Bonvicini again.
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.
Not Up To Expecations
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.
However, the very fact that we thought we were booking a hotel was deceiving in our opinion. Also, it was difficult to access from the Grand Canal with suitcases because of the amount of bridges (with stairs) that need to be crossed to reach the hotel. Furthermore, there are no elevators in Bonvicini so taking suitcases up flights of stairs was not pleasant. The bathroom and shower were extremely small and unacceptable.
We would not stay here again.
