“A unique boutique hotel experience”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We wanted a special hotel for my wife's 50th. We wanted a small, friendly boutique hotel on the grand canal yet in a quiet area and central to everything. This hotel is perfect. Impossible (almost!) to find from the streets so treat your self to a water taxi that stops right outside the hotel. The welcome is so warm and friendly. The bar area perfect and especially if you grab a drink on the balcony. The rooms are dark but very modern unlike so much of the Venice glitz. It makes a great change. Convenient to the water bus and you can easily walk everywhere. Great local restaurants. The breakfast is continental and very generous...a choice of cereal or yogurts on occasions would have been nice. The staff are so helpful. We will return!

Room Tip: No swimming pool or gym. Treat yourself to a junior suit facing the grand canal. It's well wort...

My Wife and I are 1st timers in Venice. We were not disappointed with our hotel choice.
Everything was clean, clean, clean, not a spec of dust anywhere. The staff was friendly and accommodating beyond our expectations. Would definitely stay there again....great location.

PS: take water taxi from airport to hotel. Makes finding it that much easier and puts the final touches on the trip

A wonderfully classy palazzo to boutique hotel conversion. All black marble and velvet may be a bit to boudoir for some, but it was undeniably classy. You do admittedly pay for this classy-ness.

The hotel is not simple to find from the back alleyways. As others say, it is far from impossible, but if you are shelling out on this hotel, it is worth shelling out the extra 110 Euro for a water taxi from the airport. It makes your arrival completely hassle free, and great fun. Arriving in Venice by water is magical.

Our room was of ample size although not massive. Bed was very comfortable. Room well kept and maintained. Lovely bathroom with an excellent shower.

The one table on the balcony overlooking the grand canal is worth seeking out in the morning to sit and watch the boats go by when it gets the sun or in the evening to enjoy a Spritz (9 Euro, around 3 times the price of the small bars round Rialto, so done do it every night) or Prosecco (better value at 6 Euro).

Breakfast is lovely with a selection of pastries, meat, cheese and fruit.

The hotel is in a great location, not just for watching life on the grand canal but is close to most of the excellent chichetterias near Rialto on foot.

Dear Marc B

You wrote a very nice and accurate review that exactly describe your experience at Palazzo Barbarigo: we really appreciated and we thank you very much!
We want to give to our guests high quality in all respects, including the bar, that's why our Spritz is not the same you can find in the touristic bars, as the Prosecco or any kind of beverage and snacks.

We hope to welcome you also at our properties in Milan and in Sardinia

Well after everyone saying you would never find it from the paths and you would need to get a water taxi we found it with ease! My advice is to either use google maps on your phone or print it out before you leave. We found it first time. It is down a very long alley way that turns twice but it is exactly where google shows it as being. The hotel is beautiful and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. I would be very happy to stay here again!

We just had the most amazing weekend stay at this wonderful modern hotel. The Location is superbly central and most of the sighs are within easy walk or water taxi. The room we chose had a canal view and upon opening the doors was quite literally on the Canal. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and were able to give us advice on locations of restaurants, markets, sights etc.
The room was sumptuous, clean with a very comfy bed. We would recommend this hotel for a romantic weekend.

Room Tip: Room 2 has double opening doors onto the canal

Great staff, great location, beautiful modern design. If you like the modern take on sexy boutique hotels then this is for you, if you don't then go somewhere else, and don't leave stupid reviews. The hotel website gives a great impression of what is in store and we loved it! BA lost one of our bags and the hotel staff did all they could to track it down for us. Definitely spend the extra cash and arrive by water taxi as it makes for a magical start to your stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in no. 7, great view of grand canal.

We stayed 3 nights in the suite with a view of the Grand Canal.

The room is fabulous, very chic in its decor and just oozes class and sumptuousness. We wanted a hotel that didn't look like it came straight out of the 16th century and the hotel delivered! Our suite was very large, had a great amount of storage and lovely views of the grand canal. I believe there are two of these suites with grand canal views, one on the ground floor and one above it. The bathroom however was pretty small compared to the size of the room. Everything was in great condition. Comfy bed, comfy pillows etc etc.

The room was a tad dark though. There is a lot of black in this room, and with just one medium-sized window, it can get a little dingy.

Breakfast wasn't great. The orange juice wasn't fresh and the pastries weren't the greatest either. Be warned due to the hotel's small size the only hot breakfast here is an omelette.

There's a nice bar area on the upper floor however with a balcony that you can sit on. It's a great place to sit and have a drink!

Staff were helpful and friendly, otherwise they didn't really stand out. I do recommend arriving by water taxi from the airport if you can. It can be close to 100 EUR. There's also a vaporetto (ferry/bus)stop at the airport too which will be a lot cheaper (and take a lot longer.) There's nothing quite like going straight into a boat after getting off a plane and stepping off at your hotel's dock. If you take the vaporetto, you will have to get off at a stop close to the hotel and try to find the minuscule alleyway to the hotel's back entrance. Do use the vaporetto to get around once you've arrived though as it's fantastic.

if I had to pick one place to recommend in Venice, I'd go to the island of Burano on the vaporetto. It's the most colorful place in the world. All the houses are painted a different colour so that the local fishermen could find their houses in the thick fog that often frequents the area! Ask staff for better directions on how to get there. They will give you a map.

Overall a great stay at the hotel, I'd recommend it!
