The b&b is clean and located in a good location of Venice near the Rialto bridge & is only 15 mins from San Marco's Square. I have no complaints about the lodgings themselves; however, I did have issue when, upon our arrival, there was no one on-site to check us in. I had emailed the address posted on the b&b website prior to departure for Italy 2 weeks before but never received a reply. Upon arriving at the b&b, I tried calling the cell number listed on the door but got an "out of service" message. Long story short, an employee of the restaurant downstairs (both the restaurant and the b&b are owned by the same family) happened to arrive to open the restaurant for dinner, and he was able to contact the landlord and to let us in.
I do recommend staying at this b&b, but you might want to time your arrival for when the restaurant is open (during lunch and dinner hours--they break between the two) and the friendly and helpful staff there will easily be able to help you out.
Breakfast is continental style (rolls, yogurt, juice, coffee)--nothing to write home about, but it's filling.
If you do stay at Barababao b&b, definitely try a meal at the restaurant, which, though pricey, is SUPER good. B&b tenants get a discount at the restaurant, and all customers seem to get a free prosecco apperitif.More
