  • About this holiday

    The Hotel Bisanzio is the perfect place from which to explore Venice, with comfortable rooms and excellent service. Situated just 300 metres from St Mark's Square, this 16th century palazzo is just the very beginning of your historic exploration of this magnificent city. The quirky Venetian style pervades throughout, with parquet floors, Murano glass lamps, walnut wainscotting, and antique furnishings that really set off this distinctive look. 

    Client testimonial: "Very clean, very helpful staff, excellent location."

    Our opinion

    The Hotel Bisanzio is a comfortable and history filled hotel in an excellent position for exploring the main sights of Venice.

    Hotel description

    Less than 300 metres from St Mark’s Square, the Hotel Bisanzio occupies an ancient 16th-century palazzo in a prime location close to the Riva degli Schiavoni, right in the heart of the oldest and most romantic part of Venice. Hotel Bisanzio has operated as a small hotel since 1969 although it dates back a further 400 years, when the world-famous sculptor, Alessandro Vittoria, purchased and used the building as his home and workshop. Today it offers a warm, family atmosphere with a welcoming and attentive staff, two reading rooms and a bar decorated with the art of early 20th-century Venetian painters, together with 40 rooms situated over three floors all accessible by lift. The rooms are decorated in a traditional 18th-century Venetian style with parquet floors, Murano glass lamps, walnut wainscoting, antique furnishings and open beams adding character and authenticity. The Hotel Bisanzio's superior rooms are more spacious with a corner seating area and views over a private courtyard or the narrow streets beneath, rooms with private terrace provide enviable views over the city rooftops whilst the duplex two-bedroom loft suites are perfect for families.  In the heart of Venice, just 50 metres from the main Riva Degli Schiavoni promenade and an easy walk from St Mark’s Square, the charming 3* Hotel Bisanzio is a converted 16th century Palazzo that was once home to one of the most important Venetian sculptors of the 16th Century, Alessandro Vittoria. The hotel has recently been refurbished and along with its ancient beams and Murano glass lights and is now equipped with every modern amenity, including a lift, air conditioning and satellite TV. The 40 rooms are elegantly furnished and the superior terrace rooms have a private terrace over looking the roof tops of the city and the Dome of San Zaccaria. The Hotel Bisanzio Venice has a small bar and two sitting rooms for a quiet drink or a relaxing read after a busy day’s site seeing.
    For families who wish to stay in Venice the hotel also has apartments located in a separate building, just 150 metres from the Hotel Bisanzio. The apartments can accommodate 4 people and have a kitchenette, which is perfect for catering for small children.
