If you want to stay in a hotel that captures the romantic soul of the wonderful city of Venice, then Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo is the perfect hotel for you. Palazzo Barbarigo captures the glorious Venetian architecture with its elegant furnishing and original 16th century elements throughout the hotel.
Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo is located right by the Grand Canal, the main waterway of Venice, so you get a beautiful view of passing gondolas all day.

WHAT WE LIKED THE MOST
The location of Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo is perfect for conveying what the area has to offer. It is located right by the Grand Canal , between Campo San Polo and the Basilica dei Frari, in one of the city’s most exciting districts, conveniently situated to quickly and easily reach all the major sites and attractions in Venice.
The staff were very accommodating and attentive! We were welcomed to our room with a bottle of champagne and fresh fruits! What a magnificent way to start your stay in Venice! The service level in the hotel is very high, and they do their best to accommodate each guest needs. You really feel at home at Palazzo Barbarigo. It may have to do with the hotel being owned by the same family for many generations, so they treat their staff and their guests as family. If you do not know where to go, what to see and where to eat in Venice, then ask the staff! They are happy to help you with your itinerary.
Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo has 2 floors and 18 rooms and junior suites overlooking the Grand Canal or the Rio San Polo. Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo does not have a restaurant but that wasn’t a problem for us since there were so many restaurants nearby. There is a dining area at the 2nd floor where breakfast is served. The breakfast is buffet styled, but is served on your table, so you get a selection of cold cuts, bread, pastries, eggs and so much more. If you book room 10, which is their Junior Suite, you can choose to have your breakfast at their small intimate balcony facing the Grand Canal. This is an exquisite experience that we were so lucky to have with Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo. We really felt that it completed our whole Venetian experience.
They also have a bar facing the canal, where they have a wide selection of drinks and snacks for your afternoon/evening drink. We recommend to taste their Aperol Spritz while in Venice, since this is its place of origin. The drink is a mixture of Prosecco and Aperol and is absolutely delicious!
We stayed in one of Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo’s Junior Suite on the 1st floor overlooking the Grand Canal. The design concept of Hotel Palazzo Barbarigo’s Junior Suite was Art Déco inspired with dark red and cold colour scheme balancing the spirit of the city and its romantic location.
As mentioned, we were welcomed with champagne and fresh fruits which we enjoyed while looking over the Grand Canal.
All rooms are equipped with:
- Laundry service
- Cable TV
