Great location off the main drag by a block or two but still convenient to boat stops. Helpful... See full review

Venice hotel on Riva degli Schiavoni was once studio of famous sculptor
Renowned 16th century Mannerist sculptor Alessandro Vittoria once had his studio in what is now the Best Western Bisanzio Hotel Venice, which has been managed by the Venice family since 1969. Situated along the Riva degli Schiavoni just east of St. Mark's Square, the hotel looks out over beautiful St. Mark's Basin -- an inspiration for Vittoria and now for hotel guests -- and is within easy walking distance of most popular Venice landmarks. A recent restoration added modern amenities while preserving the building's ancient character.

Hotel is nestled on a quiet street in the heart of Venice. Although we had a hard time finding it at first (The sign is engraved in the pavement of the main street before you get to the hotel), it was worth the wait. The hotel had unusually large
rooms for a European hotel and the staff was exceptionally courteous & helpful. Definitely would stay there again.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Transportation in Venice is tricky. There are no streets passable by car close to the hotel. The public water taxi drops you off at the pier, but you have to cart your luggage up and down bridges (with no ramps). It got to be a standing joke to see all the tourists, like ourselves, carrying 2-3 suitcases over the bridges through throngs of other tourists. The hotel is also a little hard to find. If it's within your budget definitely spring for the private water taxi. It will save you a lot of aggravation.
