We spent 9 days here in August and had a wonderful holiday. Locanda San Barnaba has a great location in Dorsoduro only 2 minutes walk from the Ca'Rezzonico vaporetto stop. There are plenty of good bars and restaurants nearby and we especially enjoyed our spritz aperol each evening in Campo San Barnaba. Our large room on the first floor overlooked the garden and had very good air conditioning which coped with the high temperatures. The hotel is elegantly decorated and our room was off the salone on the first floor. We enjoyed our plentiful breakfast each morning in the garden, which looks on to a canal. There were both sweet and savoury items such as cheese, eggs, ham, croissants, cereal, yogurts etc . We really appreciated the lovely cappuccino freshly made for us. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and we look forward to staying with them again on our next visit. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and the district of Dorsoduro in which to stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Experience a warm welcome in a 16th century Palace, where the enchantment and magic of Venice are complemented by the modern conveniences required by even the most exacting clientele. An architecturally sensitive restoration has brought back to life serene splendor of the era of which this building is an admirable example. Each of the fourteen rooms has a story to tell: the lover's nest, the philosopher's refuge, the artist' s studio, the playwright' s chamber, where echoes of his muse still linger. The "Locanda San Barnaba" is located in the center of the city, between Accademia Gallery, Piazza San Marco and Rialto Bridge, easy to reach from Piazzale Roma or "Santa Lucia" Railway Station by Vaporetto n° 1 (Ca' Rezzonico Stop). ... more less
