This is an excellent place to stay in Venice. Hotel Bisanzio is close to the vaporetto stop. It has comfortable and clean rooms, a helpful and friendly staff, and a good breakfast. It is a short walk to St. Mark's Square and many restaurants and other sites in Venice. We have been to Venice three times and this is by far the best place which we have stayed. We highly recommend this hotel for its value, staff, and location.

Would I stay again - yes. Nice little hotel in good location. Venice is a lovely place. Save the money to do the private airport transfer its a great way to arrive.
I would say 3 things could be improved.
Reception staff could apply a bit more effort to be welcoming. One guy was nice but the others seem to be suffering from seeing people come and go all the time they have lost the understanding of making a good first impression. Makes such a difference the meet and great and doesn't cost anything.
Beds not that comfortable. Could do with something softer to avoid the feeling of sleeping on the floor.
Finally breakfast was a bid disappointment. I don't know why hotels try and skimp on providing a nice breakfast choice. No excuse. I would rather pay more per night and have a nice breakfast to start the day. It made the hotel seem cheap as a result.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor with nice false balcony. liked west so go sun in the afternoon. Nice to...

Had a three night stay at this hotel in February. Was a fabulous location in central Venice, about 7 minutes walk from St Marks Square. Such a quaint little boutique hotel, with a small bar in the lobby area, and nice helpful staff too.
Staff happy to give restaurant recommendations and advice on where to go and where not to. We got this hotel on airline reward points so not too sure of value/price, but seeing the price list at a glance I think you can pick up a room quite reasonably priced.

Just arrived home after a 3 night stay at the Bisanzio. A lovely hotel in a great location. We had a room on the 5th floor with a small balcony. The room was a good size with a king size bed. Very clean and comfortable.

The staff are all very friendly and helpful. From the reception staff through to the ladies in the breakfast room.

We would definitely stay there again.

We chose this hotel as well reviewed, close to St Marks (San Marco) and were not disappointed. It is very clean, the staff are all very friendly, recommended good local restaurants and only about 50 yards from the canal when you arrive by water taxi. Incidentally this was €120 when booked at the booth in the airport on arrival and the same when the hotel booked one for the return. The three rooms we had booked were all a good size - two on the first floor and one on the fourth with a balcony where we could enjoy the sunshine and see the campanile over the rooftops. A decent base and you can enjoy Venice before or after the day trippers and cruise ship passengers have left when it becomes so much quieter.

Room Tip: We didn't have a bad room - either basic or with balcony

Where to stay in Venice? You are spoiled for choice but many choices are bad. Bisanzio is a small but elegant hotel in an excellent position: up a passageway just next to Chiesa della Pieta on the Riva degli Sciavoni. This is the waterfront seawards from San Marco. The four San Zaccharia boat stations are just here giving a wide variety of direct destinations by waterbus from your doorstep including the Lido, Murano, Burano and Torcello. The Riva gives you the magnificent view across the bacino to San Giorgio and a short walk to the sea-side of San Marco. The back route takes you through a pleasant districts of the town to reach San Marco or the Rialto by short walks. The hotel is clean and smart and the staff are notably helpful, cheerful and efficient. They really do know their stuff and are helpful to experienced Venetian hands and beginners alike. The breakfast is abundant but you go out for dinner. The rooms are quiet and comfortable. We have made three visits and all very happy. Why am I telling you this? They will be all booked up next time!

The hotel is very well situated, spotlessly clean and the beds have a memory foam mattress.Our room had beautiful Mirano glass chandeliers and mirrors and a walk in wardrobe/cupboards.The communal areas were also beautifully decorated and comfortable. The breakfast was very healthy with a good choice of fresh bread including Rye. My mum said that the poached eggs were amazing. The shower was basic compared to the opulence of the rest of the room and the air con/heating controls had a strong red flashing light which we had to cover at night. The staff were helpful and polite and made us feel welcome.This Hotel has been rated as three star but is worthy of a higher score. I will defiantly return to this hotel again.

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
