The moment we booked our stay with Ca'Barba B&B it was great. Alessandro was very helpful and a fantastic host. The B&B was everything in the description and more. Alessandro served us a delicious fresh breakfast both mornings and very accommodating. The location is great and close by to the main canal and the fresh fruit and seafood markets. Alessandro...

My wife and I recently stayed at this apartment for 3 nights. We were not disappointed. It took a little while to become orientated in Venice and the location of the B&B but before long we flitting off here and there. It is a really good location with only a couple of minutes walk to a vaporetto stop. When you... More

Alessandro made our stay in Venice such a personal experience with his beautiful apartment and incredibly good brekkies with excellent coffee and food. Best of all he was wonderful to share his memories of growing up locally and his great knowledge and passion for Venice. We could not recommend him more. We adored the experience. And the honey croissants.

Stayed here for 2 nights for our honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect! The rooms have an amazing jacuzzi hot tub, which is so great after exploring Venice all day. The breakfast is to die for, and Alessandro is so nice and gives great tips for sightseeing, he also knows how to make superb espresso!!! The location is ideal, right... More

I had a wonderful 4-night stay at Ca'Barba. The location is excellent-on a quiet alley just off the Grand Canal, near a water taxi stop, and a 5-minute walk to the Rialto bridge. The room is spacious, extremely clean, and very comfortable. The bathroom had a nice jacuzzi shower. The air conditioning unit worked well. The owner is extremely nice... More

My family and I booked two rooms on July 13th for two nights. I was concerned about finding old moldy rooms, but this place was the opposite. The AC is modern and powerful, the windows are new and sealed well when closed (it kept away the mosquitos), comfortable beds, modern bathrooms with white thick towels. The location is perfect, we...

Prior reviews reflect the pride and care our wonderful host has put into this exceptional B and B in Venice. We are here in the hottest month of the year. The air conditioning system is modern and is a comfortable refuge from the mid day heat!

Alessandro is the consummate host in every sense of the word. We showed up two hours late to the B&B since I botched the directions and Alessandro was extremely gracious upon our arrival. He immediately made us feel at home. He provided maps and literature on Venice for my wife and I to browse and gave us great advice on... More

Booking at Alessandro's Ca' Barba was like winning the jackpot for our Venice trip. Alessandro was in touch with us before the travel and was very helpful and attentive, gave us perfect explanations and tips. We were probably the only tourists at the airport who actually knew more or less where to go. The way to the B&B was therefore... More

Two minutes walk (if you dawdle) and you are on the Grand Canal. The location is great and Alessandro is fantastic. He will draw you maps chat over breakfast and give you your uneaten pizza brad or croissants to take with you for the day. There is free fruit, water and cool drinks available to take with you on your... More
