This is a beautiful, small hotel with a great staff in an excellent location. The hotel's stained glass, decor, stairways, art, and woodwork, are all beautiful. The water door out to the canal in back is charming, and the terrace where breakfast is served is absolutely lovely, with very attentive service. The staff was professional and elegant and very good... More

I stayed in this lovely family run hotel for 4 nights with my 2 teenage daughters. It was a great place to stay-quiet at night yet a stone's throw from Campo San Barnaba where you can have a drink or a snack in one of 2 bars. It is an easy and delightful walk to the centre of the city... More

I stayed here for 2 nights and booked about a month in advance. I landed the first floor room with a garden view and was unable to move into a canal view room because it was completely booked, but Silvia at the front desk did try her best and was very communicative and accommodating. It's a lovely place to stay,... More

We now have experience with hotels in Venice, Florence, and Rome and, without a doubt, the Locanda San Barnaba in Venice was the best and, I might add, the least expensive! It is small and personal but lovely, clean, and it is staffed by very helpful, delightful staff. While it's location is a little away from the center of town... More

I stayed at the Locanda San Barnaba From 21-23 May. The staff was helpful and friendly, the room was very nice and the location was good. There were a couple of nice little squares with some good restaurants that were off the beaten path. The hotel was also fairly close to San Maro's square and other of Venice's top sights... More

OK, maybe not perfect - but close to it. Firstly, it's on a pretty little canal off the grand canal in Dorsoduro; water door with barber shop posts, everything as you would want it. Secondly, it has a charming little terrace for breakfast. Thirdly, our room had an 18th century fresco and two little balconies - his and hers -... More

We stayed at the Locanda San Barnaba for 5 nights in May and enjoyed it very much. The palazzo is in a very good location in the Dorsoduro area, just near the Ca' Rezzonica vaporetto (water bus) stop on the Grand Canal, which gives you access to all the famous sights of Venice. Alternatively, if you want to walk, it... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

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
