The Hotel

The ECE European Lodging Recovery Fund signed a 20-year lease agreement with the international operator Palladium Hotel Group for their lifestyle boutique brand Only YOU Hotel. The hybrid lease provides for an indexed minimum guaranteed rent as well as a variable turnover rent. Thus, fund investors benefit from both inflation protection and participation in the trading upside from the €40+ million value-add repositioning project once the hotel reopens as Only YOU Bonvecchiati Venice in 2026.

Situated 150m from Piazza San Marco in the very heart of Venice, the future Only YOU Bonvecchiati Hotel, previously comprised of the Hotel Bonvecchiati and the Palace Bonvecchiati hotels, is perfectly situated in what is one of the globally established tourism destinations and a UNESCO World Heritage site. The asset has a long-standing history which the future concept will build upon.

Due to its scale and prime location with direct access by gondola or boat and conveniently located on Calle Goldoni, one of the main pedestrian arteries, connecting Piazza San Marco and the equally famous Rialto bridge, the hotel will benefit from international demand and offer full-service facilities of a 5* hotel including its own canal side terrace restaurant, bars, courtyard café, bakery and brasserie.
