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
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.
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
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
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.
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 !
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.
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
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.
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.

... leaving Lucen the main road is closed for a new bridge to be fitted and so a rather muddy make shift road was built. Last night this was just mud and was extremely slippery, today however it has all frozen up and is just solid mud so was easy enough to ride along.
Once back on the rough and bumpy pass road my problems started. It was just ice all the way and extremely slippery. Most of it was just heavy frost but as forest trucks use this road much of the frost had been ...
... they would not be ready until 3:30pm. This is a first. Usually, once boarded you head straight for the cabin to await the arrival of your luggage. This was not a problem, however, as it gave us a chance to have some lunch (along with the other 3,013 passengers!!!) The cafeteria is always manic on the embarkation day as everyone is heading for lunch at about the same time when on subsequent days, there is a steady stream of people. The restaurants are also ...
... by with a cart and tosses the bags in. The cart reminded me of the large gray carts that custodians use in schools - the ones affectionately referred to as "the whale."
It was the behind the scenes activities that had us curious. There has to be a complete underworld that keeps it all running smoothly like a well orchestrated play. Venice does this well.
Our final activity in Venice: one last cup of cappuccino at Caffe del Doge!
... time went on, I was thinking, our phones aren't working, its getting late, I have no idea where we are and will never find our hotel as I cant pronounce it , I will never find Steve in Venice, I will be stuck here, hmmmmmmm. It took poor Steve half an hour to find the ATM, again he was so lost and asking people wasn't much help either. He came back all sweaty and that white rabbit look about him. Pay our bill and big hug. Ewww sweaty ...
Early rising....8:15. No breakfast here unless I pay so I will probably grab something in the neighbourhood before heading over to the islands. Today is a walk all around day...I tried to follow a walking tour guide that started the in San Marco Square...but couldn't get past point 1...so, I gave that up and just walked around taking in the sights. Took a public ...
