Stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and 2 daughters. We loved it! It is a 15th century palace with the period frescos still present. Hotel was super comfortable. Our room was large with a 2nd floor balcony that has the beds for our kids - it was their own little club house...:). Breakfast was very tasty and kid... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and we will certainly be back. This family run hotel is small but elegant. We stayed in a standard double room overlooking the garden which was nicely decorated with excellent air conditioning which coped with the intense heat and humidity. The salone on the first floor is beautifully decorated and there... More

We usually stay in B&Bs, rather than hotels. This small hotel is more like a B&B than a hotel. Our group of four adults arrived by private water taxi. What an amazing way to enter Venice!! The taxi took us down the Grand Canal. The cost was 110 euros bought at the airport. A few days later we had the... More

We booked the room on two floors with two balconies .. though we only looked out on the one on the canal .. the other loverlooked the breakfast garden space ... We had a short time so were on the run most of the time ... Unfortunately the AC wasn't the best but we found that all over Europe ...... More

Nice little palazzo in Dorsoduro . Very quiet and lovely patio . Professional staff. Breakfast simple but ok . Quality of the beds average at best . Not the cleanest hôtel, just all right in the room. Recommended for a peaceful stay in Venice !

Stayed 2 nights at Locanda San Barnaba and Roberto and his staff exceeded all my expectations !! Just a short walk from the Ca' Rezzonico Valoretto stop. We were greeted with a smile and some cold water in the garden while our bags were carried upstairs to our room. It's such a beautiful building with clean spacious rooms and sitting... More

Based on a lot of research, we decided to book 5 nights at the Hotel San Barnaba. What a wonderful choice. It's very easy to get to from the train station, just take the #1 vaporetto to Ca' Rezzonico and it's a short walk without crossing any bridges. The ground floor has the lobby, dock to a small canal (for... More

Fantastic return trip at this lovely hotel. I had travelled with a group of friends last time I stayed here. This time I travelled with my slightly older parents. But for both trips it was perfect. We stayed on the ground floor as mobility was a little bit of an issue- Mom had a sports injury!! I was worried about... More

We have stayed in 4 hotels in Venice and this is the best by far. Excellent location a few yards from the Ca Rezzonico stop for Alilaguna from VCE. Very good staff, rooms spotless, breakfast VG, bar prices reasonable - cheapest spritz in Venice. Many good restaurants in easy reach of hotel. You can go door to door by water... More

This was our second stay here and it was great again with a real Venetian atmosphere. We stayed in a standard room on the second floor that was comfortable and quiet and handy for the terrace where we enjoyed a nice bottle of prosecco bought from the hotel at a reasonable price. Breakfast was good with excellent coffee. Would recommend... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
