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.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.

I can’t fault this hotel. The location is excellent, just a few meters from the waterfront and close to the main attractions. There are some great restaurants nearby. The breakfast room is small but adequate, with the cheerful staff making excellent coffee and hot chocolate. The

My friend and I visited this hotel in feb. The hotel has a great location with just a few minutes walk from the centre. I would say however that it needs a bit of updating in the rooms. Old tiles and bedding etc. I understand the hotel needs to be classic for such a beautiful

What did I tell you in a previous review? I said not to tell anyone @ the Bisanzio. Well the breakfast room was super busy so you must be telling everyone. The entrance has been re done in very glamorous black marble with a new green sofa. I like the old one...so friendly

Hotel Bisanzio is a quiet and quaint hotel located conveniently near the main pier in Venice and 10 min walking distance to St Mark's Square. Reception staff very helpful, but somewhat sombre. Breakfast buffet was fair. Great location and room was very comfortable and loads of

This is a pleasant enough hotel. Check in was perfunctory and the room was comfortable. Breakfast service was good. Unfortunately the room was not at all sound proof and we could hear the neighbours above walking around their room very clearly, which impacted on our sleep. I

sorry for the late reply hopefully it is not too late? We took a shared taxi from the main hall of the airport . they don't like paring you up and try to get you to book it on your own but we just asked another English couple if the wanted to share. they will try and up-sell you drop off points we just went to st marks square and walked from there. It was 160 euro for 4 of us hope this helps.

I only ever stayed in one of the apartments so I can't tell you the answer to your question. They are very responsive so an email to them should get you an answer in a day.

Hi! We were in room 404, the last room on the corridor. The hotel is set back in an alley that leads from Riva di Schiavoni so there are no views as such. It is right behind the Metropole, which does have rooms with a lagoon view.However it is not overlooked and it is quiet.

We took a taxi cab to get to the area to take a water taxi. We took a private one to the hotel, as that is what our travel agent had arranged, but the public water taxi station (kind of like a big water bus!) was not far from the entrance.
