“A Venetian gem”
Reviewed 26 November 2011

My Mom and I traveled through Italy last spring and stayed for 4 days in Venice at Ca' Barba B & B. Right from the get-go, our hosts were wonderful - Laura met us at the water bus and guided us back to the B & B (she even carried my bag over the bridge) and Alessandro was warm, friendly, and very accommodating. We felt that they genuinely wanted us to have a nice time in Venice.

The suite itself was beautiful - very nicely renovated, clean, comfortable beds, and quiet. Breakfast was fantastic, served fresh by Alessandra every morning. We would love to go back!

It was my first time in Venice and everything was perfect, beginning with the bed and breakfast. Alessandro went to pick us up at the Vaporetto Station, he helped us in everything we required and made our stay very easy. The hotel has a wonderful location, the rooms are nice, clean and new. really worth the price.

I am writing a review during our last night here in Venice and I am sad to leave. Venice is a charming city and Ca' Barba is a charming B&B. Alessandro is a wonderful host. His English is quite good. He is a Venetian and has excellent suggestions. He is careful to not be too intrusive but quite helpful.

The location is tucked away from any busy streets but only a couple minutes walk from rialto and about 15-20 from san marco.

When we checked in alessandro gave us a couple books to read to help us appreciate venice and we wished we had read them ahead of time, especially venice is a fish by tiaziano scarpa.

The breakfast is quite good, cappuccino, pastries, fruit, and yogurt.

Ca' Barba is not a luxury hotel but we were quite comfortable and allessandro treats very well. If you want a luxury hotel I'm sure the places east of san marco will take your several hundred euro a night, otherwise this is the place for you!

Grazie allessandro!

My husband and I stayed at Ca'Barba B&B for 2 nights during our honeymoon trip to Venice. There are only nice words to describe our fantastic stay at Ca'Barba. The B&B is beautifully decorated, very very clean, very comfortable, very good facilities (equipped with jacuzzi shower), spacious room, good location (away from noise but easy access to everywhere), very delicious breakfast and very dedicated and kind host ~ Alessandro.

The hospitality that Alessandro offered was really "first class" to us. He greeted us at the water bus station, carrying my heavy luggage to the B&B. He took good care of our needs (e.g. internet services, drinking water and etc), he served us very good breakfast (freshly baked croissant and my favourite mini pizza completed with a nice cup of cappucino).

Alessandro also gave us travel tips and shared with us a book about Venice entitled 'Venice is a fish". I only managed to complete till chapter 4 during my stay. This book really taught us how to appreciate and enjoy Venice in a whole new perspective!

Thank you so much Alessandro for everything and making our honeymoon more memorable. We will definitely stay at Ca'Barba when we visit Venice again!

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at Ca' Barba and everything about our stay was perfect. Alessandro makes everything easy. He is a delightful young man with great recommendations on things to do and places to eat. And his passion for his beautiful city is part of his charm. The B&B was beautifully appointed, beds were comfortable, room and bathroom was very clean and having breakfast in the morning and talking with Alessandro was a terrific way for us to start our day. Highly recommend.
