Quiet stylish stay across from the tourist mecca

Posted 10-Oct-2016
Pros: Special mention of the interior quality, staff and service, breakfast and as many others mention a lovely small balcony with spectacular views.
Cons: No improvements required
Location: 25 minutes maximum to stroll anywhere. Lots of character shops, restaurants close by - Peggy Guggenheim 15 minutes. Rialto / Accademia - 10 mins.
Lovely stylish and quiet hotel facing across Grand Canal to the busy areas of San Marco. Being a small and low property, you can have a discreet and sophisticated experience, large beautiful rooms and within 25 minutes stroll of almost everywhere.

Elegant but not pretentious

Posted 19-Sep-2016
Pros: Location, rooms, amenities, staff
Location: Local cicchetti's, Rialto market, San Polo and San Toma neighborhoods...St Marks Square 15 minute walk
Wow...what a perfect experience! The water taxi from the train station took us through idyllic Venetian canals and dropped us off at the front door/deck of Palazzo Barbarigo right on the Grand Canal! Christiano and Valentina welcomed us and immediately we knew our stay was going to be memorable. The location is on the quiet side of the canal (opposite St. Marks and the cruise ships) but within easy walking distance of everything. The hotel only has 18 rooms, is more elegant than quaint, very unique, intimate, and romantic. It's definitely a Luxury Boutique Hotel but with an elegant B&B feel. The rate includes a beautifully served breakfast. The building itself is the star attraction, over 500 years old, but the staff are what you will remember...attentive, genuine, and professional!

Our Own Private Palazzo!

Posted 17-Sep-2016
Pros: A friendly and intimate hotel but we were left alone to enjoy it. A beautiful boutique hotel, in a stunning location!
Cons: A private boat owned by the hotel would have been fantastic. We spent 400 euros on independent boats in 3 days - it was worth it for the experiences!
Location: Central location in the middle of Venice with great access to all the best attractions. Situated right in the middle of the Grand Canal, superb!
We had a fantastic three days in Venice... From the moment we arrived on our own transfer boat on a stunningly sunny day from the airport to the hotel's private pier on the grand canal we received a five star service! Upon check in we were given directions to the best spots to visit in the city - we walked seven miles in one afternoon and ticked off all the hotel's amazing recommendations, from churches to restaurants. That night we headed to the bar, which we had to ourselves and finished the evening with cocktails on the balcony on the grande canal! On day two we got upgraded to a Junior Suite (Room 6) on the Grand Canal - ftw! Each morning we ate late when we got up (breakfast is anytime you want, which is a brilliant policy! so that we always dined on our own, making it feel like we'd hired out the whole palace to ourselves. The hotel went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable & memorable. I would definitely stay at Palazza Barbarigo on our next visit and I have already recommended it to friends heading there next month!

Nice hotel, but value for money??

Posted 21-Aug-2016 on Hotels
Easy 10 minute walk from the bus or train station so forget the expensive water taxis! Although the walk does end with a slightly odd walk down a series of what look like dead end alleys - but at the end there is a welcoming sign! The hotel itself looks fabulous inside, all dark colours and beautiful wood and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. I felt the room was underwhelming and even more so was the 'canal view', considering the price I paid for it. But the wifi was good, the little bar was nice though it lacked any atmosphere and the breakfast was one of the best I've had - cold meats/cheeses and pastries and fruit all nicely presented. I probably would stay there again but only if I could get a reasonable price. It's not worth splashing out on this hotel . .

Fantastic luxurious hotel with stunning scenery!

Posted 26-Jul-2016
Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights for girlfriends birthday. Fantastic hotel, great location with stunning scenery. Service was brilliant, rooms were serviced twice a day. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, willing to go out of their way for you. All requests made we're met, would definitely visit again & would recommend to anyone. Junior Suites Grand Canal view a must do, definitely worth doing with outstanding views!
