We spent 2 nights at Locanda San Barnaba. The location is perfect, away from the crowds. The hotel is easy to find, has great service, and is a beautiful building. Just 100 steps from the Grand Canal and the vaporetto stop, Ca'Rezzonico. Lovely Breakfast, including bread, pastry, croissants, cereal, ham, cheese, yogurt, fruit, juice, coffee and tea. We enjoyed a Spritz in the afternoon in the Salon. Very close to numerous restaurants. We were able to explore the neighboring squares and shops. I would definitely stay here on a return trip to Venice.
We arrived by car and had made a reservation at Garage San Marco. It was easy to find, once we got to the floor for parking, an attendant parked the car in the small space. It was a short walk to the vaporetto number 1.
- 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
