We stayed in April 2013 and although it has taken me a while to get around to writing this review, I absolutely loved this hotel. We stayed on the ground floor in a room overlooking the Grand Canal. The rooms are dark, sexy and luxurious with a huge, stylish but comfortable bed with a chaise longue in front of the window. The temptation to spend the entire weekend in bed is overwhelming in these rooms. However, we did manage to go out and the hotel is wonderfully located as it is very near the vaporetto stop.
We arrived at the hotel by water taxi and this really was an exceptional way to start the trip. The street entrance is a little difficult to spot but if you get stressed out by wandering down blind alleys and getting lost then Venice is probably not the place for you anyway.
Breakfast is almost overwhelming with a huge range of fruits, pastries, meats, cheeses, juice & coffee. It sets you up for the whole day. It is nice to have table service rather than a buffet. Reception and bar staff were all so helpful, providing adaptors / restaurant bookings / maps & directions and travel advice whenever we needed them.
Every evening before going out we sat on the tiny two person balcony overlooking the canal with an Aperol. This was truly a magical experience and worth five stars all on its own. Several months on I am still thinking about the weekend spent at Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo which is testament to what a fantastic place it is.
