This is a jewel of a hotel that is both architecturally splendid and managed by warm and helpful staff. We could hardly believe the reviews we read before choosing the Locanda San Barnaba, but they proved to be true. Our room was spacious and well-thought...More
I can't say enough good things about Locanda San Barnaba. As other reviewers have mentioned, the location is ideal: far enough from the major sights to avoid the throngs of noisy tourists, but so convenient for walking or a vaporetto ride. In fact, its accessibility...More
The hotel is near the vaporetto stop of Ca' Rezzonico. It is on a pretty little canal off the grand canal. It is away from the crowds of San Marco but a short walk or vaporetto ride to all the major sights. My room was...More
I've stayed at the Locanda San Barnaba on two occasions, in late March 2006 and again in late March 2012 (a great time to visit Venice, by the way). Each stay at this small comfortable hotel was memorable and quite enjoyable. As mentioned in other...More
Had a perfect visit to Locanda San Barnaba in early September. The room was clean, comfortable, attractive and spacious with lovely furnishings. Delicious breakfast and very accommodating staff. Great location and near a vaporetto stop. Highly recommend this beautiful, small hotel
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.

The cruise terminal is accessible by water taxi or by vaporetto but is inconveniently located, relatively, in the south-western end of Venice. It can be reached by vaporetto within 20 minutes, I think by Line 1. Check the map. Plan B is to hire a water taxi, which costs more but will get you to the cruise ship docks within ten or fifteen minutes at most. Having said all that, the Ca Rezzonica vaporetto stop, which is within 45 seconds of Locanda San Barnaba, is a really useful spot to get onto the Grand Canal, whatever your choice of modes.

We took ATVO Venezia Express Bus from Marco Polo to the Piazzale Roma, where we got Vaporetto #1 to the Ca' Rezzonco stop and a short walk from there. For other options ... and there are a number of them ... go online and look under "transport from Marco Polo Airport to Venice".
