Friendly staff, always ready to help and five you tips about transport or places to go to. We had a lovely big room with a balcony which was nice. I would go back there!


I had read a sketchy review from a female traveler who claimed the employees at this b&b were making her uncomfortable. I had the opposite experience. They were respectful, kind, extremely helpful. Two shared bathrooms available. Orthopedic bed and plenty of blankets. Rooms are clean. It is close enough to Plaza San Marco for me to not dare complain about anything. It is near the vaporettos also to go to Burano and Murano. Perfect place for travelers on a budget.

Really nice staff. Quite a good place to stay overall. Definitely great++ value for money. Showers don't work so well, everything else is quite good. too bad breakfast is only packaged food, I really enjoy some fruit or fresh bread.


Excellente. Fabio is a great owner. Props to him!


This place was great. Our room was huge and had a private balcony. The owner was very nice. We were leaving venice on a night train and he let us stay in the room for the day with no extra charge. We did not see anyone else at the hotel but if you are looking for a romantic weekend away this is a positive.


I really enjoyed my stay at Ca'Barbaria, the staff was very helpful, friendly and kind, they helped me with my bags up the stairs, Fabio offered Italian coffee and gave me advise about places to visit, eat, and shop. The location was perfect, walking distance to most of the attractions, the vaporeto stop to go to the train station, or Murano/Burano Islands is just minutes away.

Staff was helpful in the check in and gave us a lot of tips about Venice. The b&b it's far away from the train station, a problem for someone with big backpacks (our case). Huge bedrooms, good breakfast.


Bad - Lots of stairs to get to the B&B. The water pressure in both the showers is very low. The staff would never talk to me, all responses were addressed to my boyfriend, even when I was the one asking the questions. It was quite unnerving and upsetting to be treated that way. I don't know if it was some sort of cultural thing but I would have preferred some equality in the way we were treated. Good - The biggest room is mindblowingly beautiful. Fabio let us put our stuff in the fridge.

As with everything in Venice, it was a bit expensive compared to what you can get on Mestre. But putting that aside, I had a good time there and is definitely one of the better lodging choices if you want to stay in the Venice city centrre for a reasonable price.
