“A really good Venice hotel”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

This hotel is very conveniently located, being just a 10 min stroll from St Marc's square and just 5 mins from the San Zaccaria waterbus station and water taxi point , close to several good small eating places. The reception staff are friendly, very helpful and the hotel itself is spotlessly clean everywhere. The rooms are spacious , air conditioned, en suite and well furnished , the beds are very comfortable and there is a safe box to store your valuables . There are no tea or coffee facilities but they will lend you a kettle and some cups free of charge . The price includes a good breakfast, as close as you will get to a Full English in an Italian hotel .
It is an excellent base from which to explore Venice , we couldn't fault it and would certainly stay there again . Excellent value for money.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good but don't expect a view .

Hotel in good position - close to main attractions but not noisy. Upgraded to superior room which was comfortable, up to date and spacious. Service friendly and helpful. Only disappointment - breakfast very average.

Room Tip: superior room best option

My husband and I stayed for four nights here recently, and I have to say I'm quite surprised by some of the negative comments left on tripadvisor either there are two Bisanzio hotels or they have really taken all negative feedback to heart and worked to get it perfect. We encountered wonderful, friendly & helpful staff, especially the two guys on the front desk, who not only welcoming but also gave us great advise on where to eat, and how much time to allow to get about, which enhanced or time in venice and greatly helped us to relax. A spotlessly clean and welcoming hotel, we had no problems at all, were treated very well and were delighted with our stay. We stayed here during carnival, a very touristy time of year, and didn't encounter any noise problems. Our room was fabulous, with venetian plastered walls and underfloor heating in the shower-room. Ok, breakfast wasn't a full irish, but you can't expect one in the med..and if you get over your need for orange juice and pudding, their selection was delicious, and they have the best coffee... with fresh croissants.. such a nice way to start the day.

Great location- not too far from all of the main sights but not in a loud and busy area. Right opposite the boat stop that takes you to and from the airport.

Friendly helpful staff- we arrived at 9pm 8 of us including children and the staff recommended a great pizza place and phoned ahead for us. They were always friendly.

Beautiful rooms- we had 3 rooms (one inc. a family room) all were beautifully decorated true Italian style! The family room was on the ground floor looking onto a square and the other 2 had a view of the rooftops of Venice with fantastic shutters! The first night was extremely hot but I think that was due to it being quite humid outside x

Breakfast- this was basic but had something for everyone. I never went hungry! Sometimes I think hotels can over face you and we get spoilt with too much selection- resulting in us eating for the sake of it!!!!! The breakfast staff were always friendly and there straight away to take the tea/ coffee order which was always served lovely and hot x

We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to others x

Just stayed 4 nights (Valentine's Day weekend) in superior room which was certainly big enough and very well laid out. The shower was a bit small but was useable, had a curtain and didn't leave the floor wet in the bathroom. The walls were not paper thin, the only sounds we experienced were through the door which is something hotels in general can't do anything about. The room was a bit warm during the night and the fan in the bathroom was noisy but this is really nit picking. The hotel was really nice, the staff were pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was good. The location was excellent - a short walk from the San Zaccharia Alilaguna stop from the airport and a couple of minutes walk to San Marco. Good, reasonably priced restaurants in the area. Wifi (free) in our room on the 4th floor was good, enabling streaming from YouTube without buffering. All in all a very pleasant stay and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Hotel Bisanzio to anyone.

We came here for 3 nights in January 2014 - we actually paid for it using Avios from BA. It's well situated - a short stroll to the central sites and near 2 water stops. We started off in a room on the 2nd floor but found the lift a little noisy so moved to a smaller but much cosier room on the top floor with an opening door and a view that overlooked the surrounding rooftops.
My tip would be to turn left and go and find some restaurants that way rather than walking to the touristy bit. Our favourite was Ai Due Gobbi - gorgeous food and wine.
Breakfast wasn't great -in particular the eggs really were inedible - but it was free so hey ho.
I'd definitely recommend this hotel.

Excellent spot just off the bustle of San Zaccaria and San Marco. Comfortable spacious room (104) let down only by a slightly tired shower. Friendly and helpful staff are very welcoming. Breakfast good enough, but not great. Would recommend it as a good base from which to explore Venice.

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
