This B&B was closer to the Rialto Bridge than you can imagine. The room was all you need on vacation... clean & comfy bed and bathroom. We were there for a hot, humid week in July and the air conditioning worked perfectly. Small fridge to keep our water and soda ready for the morning's excursions. Breakfast was lovely. A pastry...

Less than a five minute walk from the Rialto bridge. Close to many of the attractions. Very friendly hosts that speak English. Nice continental breakfast served between 8:30-10:30 am with croissant, coffee, fresh fruit. Small private bathroom and clean room. Nearby a busy street but quite at night. Expect to pay around 125-130 Euros a night. The only issue I... More

The owners were incredibly friendly and helpful. The Bed and Breakfast is perfectly located in the center of the city. And for me and my husband, first time visitors of Venice, we appreciated that it was right next to Ponte Rialto, since signs all around the city direct to the famous bridge. So when we got lost, all we had... More

Very conveniently located, helpful and friendly staff and overall good place. They had free wi-fi and we old access it in our room. Only problem was that when we arrived there on 8th May, it was quite warm and they did not have the Air conditioning working. When we spoke to the landlord, he told us that they connect the... More

The location is very central. The room was a bit smelly. It took a day to bring us a second towel. NO WIFI, even if they claim they have it. No reception. When the restaurant is closed, difficult to find someone to help. When the restaurant is open, you don't feel comfortable to ask for help. Bottom line - the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and I have never had such bad service in all my years of travelling. When we arrived, the person behind the counter totally ignored us. He was making coffee and wasn't interested in even talking to us. After standing around for 10 minutes, my husband wandered into the kitchen and found someone who begrudgingly... More

We had a bad experience trying to find this place....arriving at night and being told by several locals different directions. It took 3 hours with heavy suitcases to eventually find this place. Its confusing because it is the name of a restaurant downstairs and the B&B is quite hidden. When we arrived, there was 1 towel for 2 people. The... More

This is a great location in the Cannaregio section of Venice! Just a short walk north of the Rialto Bridge, Barababao is across the alley-way from the historic church of San Giovanni Grisostomo (in English: Saint John Chrysostom, found in your guide books and easy to find by it’s tall bell tower). The street level of Barababao has a restaurant... More

My wife and I loved our stay here the rooms were well appointed but it would have been nice to have at least one English TV station not that we were in our room much. The location was fantastic and the owner or manager is easily accessible downstairs at the restaurant of the same name. The cappuccino at the typical... More
