We stayed here for 1 night in late May. Our room was a junior suite. It basically was a large room, with an open sitting area up a flight of stairs. What made the room spectacular was the fresco that covered the entire ceiling. We did not see anything like this in any other of the places we stayed while in Italy. Fixtures were nice, always had hot water, but did not have a shower. The staff was nice and helpful, taking care of reservations and answering some general questions about Venice. They were also able to store our bags for the day in that we left at midnight the following night. Nice buffet for breakfast which was served in a courtyard. We thought the location was very good. Located in Dursodoro, it was about 50 yards from the vapporetto stop and a 10 minute walk to Piazza San Marco. We liked Dursodoro, especially since it was not as crowded as San Marco and wished we were able to have spent more time in this area. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Experience a warm welcome in a 16th century Palace, where the enchantment and magic of Venice are complemented by the modern conveniences required by even the most exacting clientele. An architecturally sensitive restoration has brought back to life serene splendor of the era of which this building is an admirable example. Each of the fourteen rooms has a story to tell: the lover's nest, the philosopher's refuge, the artist' s studio, the playwright' s chamber, where echoes of his muse still linger. The "Locanda San Barnaba" is located in the center of the city, between Accademia Gallery, Piazza San Marco and Rialto Bridge, easy to reach from Piazzale Roma or "Santa Lucia" Railway Station by Vaporetto n° 1 (Ca' Rezzonico Stop). ... more less
