We stayed at Locanda San Barnaba twice in September and found it to be very pleasant both visits. The accommodations are very comfortable, clean and nicely appointed. We stayed in two different rooms, both fine and easy to recommend. There was both a courtyard and a balcony where we could enjoy wine and relaxing after a day of being tourists.... More

This is a treasure. A small palazzo with a family feel in a true neighborhood. We arrived by private water taxi right to the Locandas water gate and into the lobby. A private walled garden for almost fresco fining and a welcoming inside room as al alternative. The Locanda is just a short half block to the vapatetto stop and... More

We didn't stay at the Locanda San Barnaba, but they came to our aid. We had just arrived in Venice, and were late, very late, to meet someone waiting for us. We'd gotten off at some distance and had no map, no wifi, no cell service. Passing the Locanda, I looked in, and just knew we'd find a helpful person... More

Wonderful location and experience. Sensing Venice in a 16th century house turned to a boutique hotel. Very nice and warm atmosphere. All the attractions are closeby. The hotel is very close to boat station. The staff was very friendly. At my next visit, I would definitely stay here again.

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 !

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.
