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

We stayed here in mid-May for one night. The hotel was well priced, clean and convenient to the Rialto Alilaguna water bus stop and San Marco's Square. It was a bit hard to find, like most places in Venice because of the lack of street signs that don't match any maps. We were lucky enough to find a mailman who... More

Really good value, close to Rialto, nice size room with fridge and safe, good continental breakfast in the restaurant downstairs. Was a little tricky to find but did some research on google maps and found it OK - when you see the restaurant, the B&B is on the right as you face it. Can also recommend the airport boat -... More
