This was a surprise treat for 12 of us put on by my lovely sister in law for a surprise 40th for my brother. After drinks at Hotel Danieli we were whisked by speedboat early evening to Venissa. We had no idea of the delights instore. It was dark when we arrived and the thunderstorm that began as we arrived... More

I have been to Venice several times. It is a magnificent city but can be incredibly hot and crowded in the summer. This time I was spending the weekend in Venice with 5 other couples all close friends. Four Italian, one Norwegian and myself the lonely American. We rented all six of the rooms. It is a sleek modern European... More

We took 2 of the 6 guest rooms. Design and ergonomics was a highlight, with a nod to the original building and to Mazzorbo/Burano style. The staff were a delight and the freshness of the breakfast another highlight of the stay. The short walk to Burano was convenient and increased the eating and shopping options slightly. We tried several restaurants... More

An outstanding experience. We visited for lunch. The service was simply outstanding... The food was beyond anything we had anticipated. Incredible flavors, use of herbs & vegetables grown on the property & the presentation divine. A MUST VISIT when in Venice!

I have visited Venissa 3 times since it opened. Situated on Mazzorbo it is a charming inn (6 rooms), expensive restaurant and vineyard. The rooms are very contemporary, Ikea style furnished, beds not very comfortable, and bathrooms very small with basins far too low. The showers are tiny despite there being room for them to be bigger. But, I forgive... More

The previous review I think is unfair. This is my second stay here and I can testify to the fact that this place is not a rip off, it is classy yet not expensive. It is not cheap either (it is not a B&B in the normal sense, it is elegant and chic. It is more like a very very... More

The vineyard and vegetable plots are a delight to wander round and a surprise that anyone can do so, given the elitist character of the hotel and restaurant. On a sunny day with the roses in bloom we were enticed to sit and have a glass. Trattoria Maddalena was closed for the day as was Cacciatoria (much improved) so lunch... More

Very small ( 6 rooms) boutique hotel in a quiet island 35 minutes to Venice. Rooms are large and very clean with great view. Central AC. Great restaurant on premises, but wide variety of dining on nearby Burano island. Friendly, very helpful English speaking personnel. Breakfast is included in the price. Water bus stops next to the hotel. Will stop... More

This is a great hotel away from the chaos of the centre of venice during summer. Good rooms, great breakfast with super fresh ingredients and a fresh juicing machine. Best fine dining meal experienced yet for dinner. Wonderful place, highly recommended..

This was a wonderful way to get away from the crowds of Venice for a few days. We stayed in one of the first-floor (second-floor to North Americans) rooms overlooking the water. Our room was outfitted with a stylish minimalism -- the furniture was handsome, whitewashed wood, and the bedsheets, curtains, even the towels, were a rich, heavyweight linen. The... More
