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

We stayed at the Locanda San Barnaba for five nights in early April. It was not easy to find a suitable place in Venice for, like central Rome and the Amalfi Coast, Venice is one of the most expensive places in Italy. It is expensive because housing is limited, local transport costly, and tourist demand is overwhelming. Nevertheless, we found... More

We are a family of 4 with teens and it's hard to find a suitable room for us...this room was very pleasant...2 levels and a nice balcony overlooking the canal. The location was tremendous...I felt as if we were staying in a neighborhood that was both frequented by locals and some tourists. It was just of the Camp San Barnaba... More

We've stayed in this hotel about five times over the last ten years or so. it's been consistently friendly, with excellent service, lovely breakfasts, and a most helpful reception desk. If you want a super-modern hotel with all the rooms the same this is not for you. Each room is distinctively large and comfortable, opening off a central first floor... More

This was a lucky find for us. We prefer not to be right in the thick of it, while at the same time able to get to whatever we want. Here, we were just a stone's throw from a vaporetto stop (though we only used it to get there when we first arrived) and were easily able to walk to... More

One problem for tourists in Venice is going up and down bridges with luggage. This hotel doesn't have that problem. It is easy to find and no bridges from the stop. Service is very good. The room is not big but price is reasonable for Venice. The neighborhood is great, not in most touristy part so one can see some... More

This is our third time at this hotel, although the last visit was several years ago. We prefer Venice in the winter so probably have a very different experience to summer visitors. The hotel is in a small palazzo, family run, moderately priced (for Venice) and exceedingly popular, so almost impossible to book during the main season. Cheaper in low... More

We returned for 7 nights here. This time, instead of the ground floor room, which was too dark for us, we stayed one night in a superior room on the 2nd floor and 6 nights in a double (Il Campiello) on the 3rd floor. If stairs are a problem for you this is not the place for you. There are... More

We had a wonderful stay here. The staff are just the friendliest, and their English is great. It's in a great location, less than a minute walk from a vaporetto stop! Beautiful rooms and delicious breakfast. I would recommend this to anyone.

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.
