    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Bisanzio Venice

    Location, Location, Location

    from

    We had made reservations for two nights and got a confirmation. Later we added a night and didn't get one, so we stayed next door thinking they had no room, and paid twice the price for very unfriendly service.

    The next day we checked into the Bisanzio, and to our surprise they wondered where we had been the night before! They could have, and rightly so, charged us for the night that we did not show up, (they showed us the email they had sent confirming the extra night), but they didn't. This was in the summer high season too. We thought that was over the top in understanding. Besides being a great hotel, the staff is very nice, friendly and helpful, not always the case in Italy after a long summer of demanding tourists. We already have reservations for 2004.

    I agree. Great location, nice helpful staff, however

    from

    We chose to get a room with balcony (tiny) overlooking rooftops and buildings which were pleasant but definitley not worth spending extra for. It is very nice that they provide a FREE boat over to Murano but be prepared for the sales pitch and make sure you ask that sales person to fund your way back! They will but it won't be on a private water taxi like the one you came on unless you buy something very expensive.

    Other than those two suggestions if I went back I would try the Locanda Orseola...my son stayed there and we visited their place it was lovely and alot cheaper! Vevice is like Disney World chocked full of tourists, expensive, oh so pretty and something one should do once in their life time! Have fun and 2 full days there is fine.

    Great Visit

    from

    Stayed at the Hotel Bisanzio last week, and had a great stay. My husband and I arrived from the Rome to Venice overnight train at 9am, and they had an early check in ready for us by 11am. The location was excellent, the front desk staff were extremely helpful, and our room was charming and spotless. Plus the price was excellent for Venice.

    Would definitely stay there again!

    Smart, slick little hotel

    from

    Charming, professionally-run small hotel in an amazing location. Near to the action, but down a quiet little street that insures peace at the end of a tiring day of sightseeing! I was given a tiny attic room that was just enough for a single...the bathroom was quite spacious, however, and the tub a welcome and relaxing respite. Only down side was, though the air-conditioning worked just fine, it was difficult to cool off the room as much as I'd have liked because of it's top floor location and this summer's relentless sun beating down. Marco at the desk was extremely helpful with advice, answers and a much-needed American "adapter plug!"

    Going back for the second time

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Bisanzio in May of 2000 for 4 nights. The service, atmosphere, and location were fantastic. Close to everything without being in the crowds. In fact, the hotel sits back a half block from the closest major walk/water way. The room felt like Venice: elegant and inviting. The staff is friendly and helpful. Marco was great. We had a room with a balcony with views of roof tops and bell towers. We could hear the locals walking down the small alley (street) below and although we don't speak Italian, we loved hearing it while we enjoyed a bottle(s) of wonderful local wine. We plan on returning to Venice with my mother this coming winter. We are planning on staying once again at the Bisanzio. Venice for us is a city like no other that we simply love visiting. The Bisanzio is the icing on the cake once you get there.

    Arancia Sanguinella!

    from

    We spent three nights here over Memorial Day weekend (Husband, nine-year-old son and I). Location was great (a few steps away from Piazza San Marco. 200 ft from the San Zaccharia ACTV stop (bus boats). They served a good breakfast, not with red KoolAid (get a clue, Seattle WA): but with Arancia Sanguinella (blood red orange juice) mmm delicious, and served all over Italy (two weeks ago I was drinking green orange juice in Haiti). It was very easy to get around Venice: yellow street names go through (white ones are dead ends). It was a simple hop from the hotel to Murano, as the San Zaccharia stop was so close to the Hotel. The hotel was quiet, though just off the Riva Schiavoni. Staff was very helpful in locating us a pharmacy. Rate was reasonable for expensive Venice , too !

    Average Hotel

    from

    Stayed here in mid-April. Location is great - so close to all the sights, yet in a quiet area. Single room is average sized. Stayed in a room on the ground floor facing a little courtyard. No a/c yet at that time. Can hear noises from other rooms. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful though. Breakfast is average - cold cuts, do not expect hot food.

    Great Hotel

    from

    This was the most spacious room we stayed at in Italy. We loved the heated towels. Very easy walk to St. Mark's square. Very helpful and accomodating staff. Just one small complaint. if you take the free tour to Murano the hotel offers; they will take you there but you will have to find your own way back.

    Great Hotel, Great Staff, Great Location

    from

    Stayed here in February. Large room, well-furnished, with own terrace overlooking the canal. The location was extremely convenient - near enough to San Marco and all the main sights, but not so close that it would be noisy in the summer. Very helpful, friendly staff.

    Delightful!

    from

    We were extremely pleased with this hotel. Great location, very near Piazza San Marco, and convenient to vaporetto stops. Set on a quiet street, just off Riva Schiavone.

    Charming room -- clean, quiet, nicely furnished, and quite large for a European hotel room. En-suite bathroom with shower only (no tub), nicely decorated, includes towel warmer and hair dryer.

    Multi-lingual, friendly, helpful staff.

    Only downside -- they served some sort of red Kool-Aid for breakfast, no juice.

    For a mid-priced hotel room, this is a great place to stay. Highly recommend.

    ... less than stable stool and step (economy class). Have to follow Beryl's lead and get in first next time as they got the beautifully padded comfy seats - helps when you have been there before. After our gondola ride, we made our way back to the hotel for a beautiful 3 course meal and wine before going on a gorgeous private water taxi which took us the length of the Grand Canal seeing magical Venice by night. We passed by the building ...

    Did a canal ride on the vaporetto (public transport) around the island of Venice and through the grand canal, St Marks square and back to our hotel which is on the grand canal just near the piazza Roma (a good spot to be), nice Hotel as well.
    Will do the Gondola thing tomorrow and few other sights and will sadly leave all this behind on sunday for the trip home.

    ... br> We left Paul at home and Carmen and I walked Danita around to her meeting point for her Tour.
    Mind she did not need company as she has independently found her way around Europe for many months up until now but we are glad we did because we witnessed what they say about Venice being under water at times.
    We presumed it was because of the rain we had late this afternoon but it could also be because of the high tide coming in.
    We were amused at how the Waiters ...

    Today was a hectic day as we had a lot of traveling we had to do and we wanted to explore Venice as much as possible - also having to this on 2 hours of sleep (not asking for any sympathy mind you). So we got into Ancona early and had time to grab some breakfast with Nick, Kevin and their family before our train arrived - which was nice because they were great people and ending up having a lot in common. We said our goodbyes and made the train to Bologna and then onto Venice. Now ...

    ... this floating city.
    Drinking in the beautiful canal lined with terrace houses, seeing water taxis and gondolas floating past in every direction on the sparkling blue-green water in the bright sunshine was truly a jaw dropping entrance to a new city.
    Tearing our eyes away from the view, we tried to find our hotel. After only about four or five wrong turns we managed to find it down a winding alley. Dumping our bags and changing into ...
