Hotel Bucintoro

Venice, Italy

Hotel Bucintoro is on the banks of San Biagio, right near Piazza San Marco. All the hotel rooms have a magnificent view and, besides offering an enchanting panorama, its splendid location is also perfect to visit the entire historic center of Venice. Piazza San Marco is just a few minutes walk from Hotel Bucintoro; the Biennial Gardens are also just a few minutes away while the Arsenal and Naval Museum are respectively 100 and 20 meters from the hotel. The Rialto, Gallerie dell'Accademia, the Peggy Guggenehim Collection and the Lido of Venice, the home of the Film Festival, can be easily reached with the water shuttles that stop at the Arsenal. In addition to tourist sites, Hotel Bucintoro has the privilege of being right near Castello, the most authentic district in Venice, which is still full of small neighborhood shops, cafes and typical bacari (Venetian osterias).

We are facing the sea and the maritime lifeblood of Venice. We have dedicated each room to an elegant sailboat, creating rooms like the Officials quarters in the unforgettable sailboats in the novels of Cecil Scott Forester and Patrick O'Brien. We have provided the best comforts and selected the name of the Doge's ceremonial boat for sea weddings, the Bucintoro. 

This is how Hotel Bucintoro was founded, giving Venice an elegant 4-star hotel inspired by Venice's authentic maritime tradition. And with its location, on the Docks of San Marco, on a magnificent tract of land on the banks between the Aresnale, the Naval History Museum and the Morosini Military Naval School, it could not be otherwise.

Those who choose Hotel Bucintoro are selecting a splendidly located, elegant luxury hotel in Venice with all the comforts and services of an international hotel but with the carefully furnished spaces and attention to detail of a small hotel, to spend an unforgettable vacation in Venice.

All of the 20 rooms at Hotel Bucintoro face the San Marco Docks. The view is truly spectacular: it runs from San Marco to Palazzo Ducale and the Campanile to the Island of San Giorgio and the Customs Office. Here, Venice has been a whirlwind of sailors, merchants and galleys for centuries; now, from the windows of Hotel Bucintoro, you can watch the peaceful gondolas, water shuttle and tope (typical work boats) glide by. Each room, junior suite and suite at the hotel have the name of a historic sail boat while the furniture and spaces are inspired by great sailboats. Elegant wood paneling, brass, appliqué with authentic nautical figures and lamps that seem to be oil burning: every detail was studied to evoke the charm of the ships of the past. The comfort and services of each room, junior suite and suite at Hotel Bucintoro are typical of a 4-star hotel in Venice.

Client Comments

"Just spoke with my clients and thought you would love to know how please they were with all their hotel. They would highly recommend Bucintoro to anyone. The hotel was beautiful, just enough off the beaten track to not be right in the touristy area, but an easy walk to everything."
