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!

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.

Hidden Jewell

From the outside, the Hotel is nothing special ( once you have found it if walking and not taken a water taxi )But inside it is a Palace!!

Grand Canal Hotel

Posted 24-Jun-2016 on Hotels
This is such a beautiful hotel, right on the Grand Canal, the location gets your anywhere in little more than 10 minutes. Breakfast is great, beautiful fruit and breads and fresh pastries etc. The hotel staff are all so helpful too, especially for us, as first time visitors. I really can't recommend it highly enough, so much to enjoy!

Palazzo Barbarigo - May 2016

Posted 30-May-2016 on Hotels
May 2016 A wonderful hotel! Beautiful decor and very friendly, helpful staff. The hotel had an intimate, boutique feel and the service felt personal and thoughful. The rooms were clean with modern amenities. The hotel had a lovely bar with a balcony overlooking the Grand Canal and the breakfasts were amazing - great coffee and a lovely selection of fresh fruit, pastries and breads!! The location was perfect - a lovely area with great little shops and plenty of restaurants which were not too touristy or overpriced. It was a 10 minute walk to Piazza San Marco and all the main sights. Highly recommended!!
