Is in a good setting next to the main attraction in Venice....San Marco....with comfortable small rooms. Two things they can improve on; breakfast is the same day in day out....some variety would do to spice up the breakfast.....secondly, the waiters and receptionists should up their game on foreign languages.

Sarcastic front desk clerks...don't appreciate this on vacation. Very condesceneding attitude.....spend your money at a friendlier place....they are very casual about leaving your luggage sitting out in the lobby and do NOT want to hear your concern... No concerns about safety. Bare bones toiletries in room . No clock or nice extras.

Riccardo_Busetti, Guest Relations Manager at BEST WESTERN Bisanzio, responded to this review

the Hotel Bisanzio’s staff, at the front desk, has developed an approach with its guests that it is appreciated for its way of beeing a bit informal but at the same time very friendly attentive and responding. In such a specific case emphasizing (maybe with a smile or a surprised gaze) the fact that never ever happened anything to any... More

A large part of the charm of Venice was staying at this delightful hotel! The multi lingual staff could not have done more to help us with anything we asked. My husband and I are frequent travelers and this hotel staff, without a doubt, was one of the finest we have ever encountered. The room was a lovely Venetian décor,... More

A smaller hotel with excellent, helpful staff at the desk. They double as concierges and do a fine job of it. The hotel is quiet, uncrowded and unhurried. Plus, a nice breakfast every day with cheerful wait staff. It is well-located and reasonably priced. Some good restaurants are nearby (including a very good one, though pricey: Ristorante al Covo).

It's hard to find a reasonable hotel in Venice that offers quality, good service, good breakfast. This hotel was recommended by Marianna, from Odyssey Travel agency in Rome. We loved it! Within walking distance to Piazza San Marco just a few steps from San Zaccaria stop. We arrived in Venice via train from Rome at Santa Lucia Station. Hopped on... More

Stayed here on recommendation . Location is very central. Nice walk from St Marco Square and easy to find at end of alley from Waterfront. Caught a water taxi from rail station and the hotel has a side entrance which made luggage handling easy with 6 of us and a lot of luggage. Staff were excellent. Paid extra for a... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my time at this Hotel. Our room was large with room to get around the bed and so forth, whilst the bathroom is nothing fantastic to look at - it's functional and does the job well. Good water pressure from the shower. Breakfast was ok, had an array of food to choose from, however I found a hair... More

Stayed for three nights. Hotel staff very friendly, hotel spotless clean. Entrance to hotel and bar was nice to sit in. Ideal location, very central. Five minutes from St. Marco square. Only 15-20 mins in the water bus from the train station, costing only £12pp. Would definitely stay again!

Spent three nights at Bisanzio and was pleased from the moment we checked in until check out. We were greeted promptly by front desk, asked if we spoke English or Italian, concierge took our bags immediately, walked us to our room and pointed out all room features. Since we were a family of four, they gave us a family suite... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the heart of Venice, in a location that is extremely quiet but close to all the principal attractions of the city, the Hotel Bisanzio occupies an ancient 16th-century palazzo that was once the home and “workshop” of Alessandro Vittoria, one of the most important Venetian sculptors of the 16th century and a student of the great Jacopo Sansovino. A recent, careful restoration has allowed the Hotel Bisanzio to preserve the fascination of an ancient Venetian palazzo that is, today, equipped with every modern amenity, to ensure a relaxing stay in a structure equipped with elevator, air-conditioning, LCD TV and Wi-Fi Internet access. Ease of access is not secondary when talking about Venice, where people almost always get around on foot. The Hotel Bisanzio is perfectly located, just 150 meters from the city's main public transportation stop (San Marco - Zaccaria), where all the lines for the other areas of the city and the adjacent islands arrive and depart. ... more   less
