“A Great Hotel for a Romantic Weekend”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Wow! What a hotel, really lush without being stuffy. Friendly staff, great room, what more can I say. Loved the breakfast especially the fact that everything was on the table for you, no getting up and going to the buffet, very civilised.

Do arrive by boat or you will never find it. I recommend the shared water taxi from the airport www.venicelink.com which we've used for three trips now and works really well.

This is perhaps the only hotel available that is NOT chintz, polished brass and renaissance sculptures; the usual Venetian motifs. It's by contrast a sublimely contemporary place - all black wood and dark alcoves. The 'look' is followed through right down to the staff uniforms and toiletries. It's very well done.
So, firstly, if you arrive on foot and you find it straight away, you deserve a medal. It's hidden down not one but two (very) narrow alleyways. But when you do find it...it's a stunning oasis.
The staff were extremely helpful on all occasions. We arrived early but our room was ready. And when we checked out they held our bags etc. Breakfast was a little slow (but it's Italy so keep this in mind at all times regarding customer service!) but the selection was impressive and coffee was excellent. We also had a few drinks in the bar including using the tiny balcony on the Grand Canal, which was genuinely lovely.
The room was adequately sized and the bed was extremely comfortable. No issues with the bathroom. There's free wifi too...which was the slowest I have ever encountered, so not that worthwhile. Only a few of the rooms have Grand Canal views but ours was above an adjoining canal and we still heard the water lapping, boats and the ubiquitous gondolier singing opera (yes really).
Location wise it's on the quieter San Polo side away from Rialto. But no where is that far from any of the sights. But it is less touristy than the San Marco side. There are (should you need them) a drug store and market very close by. The hotel provided a concise list of restaurants, this plus TA reviews meant we only had one average meal (try Birraria La Corte or Antiche Carampane).
The only negative, as there have to be some; our room was located off the bar area. Which meant some evenings it was quite noisy with guests enjoying themselves. But I'm willing to overlook that considering the quality of the place.

Room Tip: Away from the bar...

Perfect romantic break. Beautiful setting on the Grand Canal. Impeccable staff and service, plus breakfast was a triumph! Only complaint would be one day the bar was closed which was a shame, but it meant we went and found some lovely local wine-bars instead so hardly a bad point! The water taxi is a must - very glad we read the other reviews and did it. I would absolutely recommend for anyone staying in Venice. It will complete your trip!

What a great hotel. Just back from a three night break. Everything you hear is true. Stunning hotel. Great bar. Lovely staff. Hard to find by foot. That's part of the Venice experience, so get used to it. Make sure you arrive by water taxi. Yes it's expensive, but you all know that already...

Room Tip: Room on side canal was soooo quiet....and near the bar.

We've just spent three nights here and it was wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to come away for a romantic retreat in a stylish environment. However, the hotel has good and bad points, as listed below:
Good points - good location; situated close to Rialto and on the grand canal, very attentive and polite staff, decor throughout the whole hotel gives a glamorous Art Deco/thirties luxurious feel, bar snacks are very nice, quiet and peaceful, large beds with two duvets just incase your partner fancies stealing yours, a very relaxing bar area to retreat to in the evening with great views over the canal.
Bad points - unless you fork out over €100 for a water taxi from the airport, the directions on the website are useless. We walked around with our luggage in the rain for 45 minutes and the locals couldn't direct us so we called the hotel. Walking down a poorly lit alley really didn't give the fantastic first impression we were hoping for. The chap on reception advised us that 'we really should have got the water taxi.' They need to allow for the fact that not all their guests choose to spend so much money on a taxi. This really should be a boutique B&B rather than a hotel. It seems ludicrous that you have a telephone next to the toilet and a tv in the bathroom mirror and yet you can't get a drink between 11am and 4.30pm. When you get back from a day exploring and just want a cup of tea/glass of wine, this is really disappointing. The lighting in the bathroom and room is dim. It adds to the ambience but it would be good to have the option of having a proper light for putting make up on/putting contact lenses in. There is no storage in the room apart from the wardrobe so all my make up/hair dryer/brushes were left out the whole time which felt messy.
All in all, the hotel is wonderful and I would recommend staying here. I'd definitely come back and the 'bad points' listed above are mere recommendations to the hotel to make their guests' stays even more pleasurable.

This thoughtfully designed hotel gives you a feeling of comfortable luxury and escape as soon as you step through the door. Its location is also convenient for all your strolls through this picturesque city, and though the enchanting canals will have you heading out the door, you will also look forward to returning to the comforts of this fine boutique hotel. We came here on our honeymoon in September 2011, and wished we had more time. We would love to someday return.

Just spent a long weekend at Barbargio and it was great. The rooms are decorated in a nice modern fashion, simple yet stylish. Breakfast was good, and bar was lovely looking over the canal. Nice quiet, small hotel and staff were very attentive if needing anything. Its tucked away and a good base to explore the island.
