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

This our fourth visit to Venice, illustrated another, darker aspect of life on the Veneto; la acqua alta. We stayed four nights at Venissa in the midst of a six night stay, during which time some areas across the lagoon recorded their highest ever water levels. We ended up as the only guests; the weather forcing others to cancel. At... More

We spent the most amazing long weekend at the Venissa Hotel, Mazzorbo. The rooms are elegant, comfortable and immaculately clean. The staff are wonderful and the restaurant is just fantastic. Everything we ate, breakfasts and dinner, fantastic. Mazzorbo is such a lovely tranquil place. A short work over the bridge and you are in Burano, fantastic for a stroll, some... More

We have just returned from staying here for two nights as part of a party of nine to celebrate a birthday and can really only say Wow Wow Wow. Everything was perfect. Paola and Franco did everything they possibly could to make sure our stay was the best it could possibly be. The surroundings are inspirational with manicured lawn, lavender,... More

This was a very different experience to central Venice. The beautifully tranquil, verdant island of Mazzorbo is home to the Venissa estate, a walled vineyard that holds a chic hostel and 'destination' restaurant. We stayed in the 'certosa' room - 2nd floor in the eves with a beautiful view overlooking the canal. The Vaporetto stop is only a hundred yards... More

What a beautiful place to stay! I'm female in my mid-twenties and visited with my mum. The island setting is so peaceful - perfect to relax in between trips into busy Venice. The hotel & restaurant are set in a vineyard, and is conveniently only a few steps from the vaporetto stop that will take you into Venice. The island... More

We found the Venissa based on a recommendation in the Decanter wine magazin. it was rates highly, however, our expectations were exceeded. We stayed there from May 10th to May 13th 2012 and it was a wonderful experience. It is not cheap but you get what you pay for.

We spent a spendid weekend at Venissa last April. We only stayed overnight for one night while waiting for our apartment rental, but have dreamed since then of returning. The room was lovely with a view of the canal, and great appointments. The restaurant was closed for the evening beasue of a special party, but Paola, the chef, graciously offered... More
