The Hotel

Sitting right on the Grand Canal and just 20 minutes, well perhaps 2 hours away from St Marks Square is Palazzo Barbarigo. St Marks is best found on foot. Narrow lanes filled with fine eateries, bars and little shops filled with knick knacks and curiosities. What gives the greatest thrill - exploring the lanes, never quite sure whether you’ll pass from one lane to another, or whether your route will be blocked by the waters of an intersecting canal? Or is it St Marks Square so familiar from films and postcards. One thing is for sure the price of a morning Espresso in the square will leave you weeping – so don’t look at the prices until the time comes to pay so you can savour every moment of the music and theatre of St Marks.

You can just about see the Palazzo Barbarigo as you cross over the Grand Canal on the Rialto Bridge and in just a few minutes by foot you’re there. Built in the 16th century Palazzo Barbarigo has the traditional ‘Palace Style’ exterior of many European hotels, but step inside and you’re fast forwarded 400 years to a modern Design interior of black polished surfaces reflecting art deco style lighting.

There are just eighteen rooms, including four deluxe Junior Suites and all the rooms have canal views; some rooms overlook the Grand Canal. All furnished in an opulent design style, the rooms and suites are very different to many of the other palace hotels in Venice, not least because the furnishings are neither genuine antique or replicas specially designed for luxury chain hotels. For the boys amongst the men, the tv in the bathroom mirror might just result in you spending more time in the bathroom that your partner.

The bar is the heart of the hotel furnished in dark polished woods; it’s the perfect place to watch the world float past on the Grand Canal. There is a small breakfast room, but with so many superb restaurants just a short walk or boat ride away, why would you want to eat in?

For couples thinking of getting married or honeymooning in Venice, Palazzo Barbarigo offers the perfect setting. Weddings are such a personal and special event in a couples life, you cannot buy an ‘off the shelf package’. So whilst the basics may have a common thread, couples marrying here discuss their plans with our Wedding co-ordinator, who fashions the couple’s dreams into the special day.

Getting to Venice and getting around when you’re there:

From the UK British Airways (www.BA.com) fly from Gatwick or Heathrow. BMI flies from Heathrow (www.flybmi.com) Easyjet fly from Gatwick, Bristol & East Midlands (www.easyjet.com). Ryanair flies from Stanstead and Liverpool to Treviso - which is sort of near Venice - just) (www.ryanair.com). Jet2 flies from Leeds/Bradford and Edinburgh (www.jet2.com)

Venice as everyone knows is built on water and the easiest way to get around is by boat – Gondola at least once if you’re in Venice with someone important to you. The only ways to see the city is by foot or by boat, so forget car hire, although there are both water taxis and water buses. On arrival and departure there is only one way to travel to and from the airport and that is by private water taxi which takes around 30 minutes and costs approximately £70 each way.

Activities and facilities

After a busy day taking in the sites, shopping and eating, allow yourself a little time to unwind in the bar watching the commuters making their way home by waterbus on the Canal Grande.

But apart from the magnificent bar the only other facilities at Palazzo Barbarigo is the breakfast room, which you may never see if you chose to have your breakfast in bed.

The hotel is close to all major attractions including La Fenice, Palazzo Grassi, the Guggenheim Museum and Piazza San Marco. All are easy to reach by foot, Gondola or water taxi. English speaking guides can easily be arranged and it is probably best to pre-book a guide if you’re visiting during the height of the season.

The Rooms

The main feature of all the rooms of Palazzo Barbarigo is that they all have a view over a canal unlike many of the hotels in the city. They also all have double beds, flat screen satellite TVs, air-conditioning, telephone, mini-bar, safe, marble or stoneware bathrooms with shower and hair-dryer. The rooms on the ground floor have black marble floors, whilst first floor rooms have polished parquet flooring.

Classic Rooms

Situated either on the ground or first floor, the Classic rooms all overlook the Rio di San Polo canal.
Comfortable and well lit, the bedrooms are a blend of modern design and elegance. The furnishings are mainly in dark colours, blacks and browns that combine with a dash of colour from the purple table lamp and the whiteness of the bed linen.
Accommodates: two adults

Luxury Rooms

The luxury rooms also face the Rio di San Polo canal. They are larger than the Classic rooms and have an additional small sofa bed, suitable only for very young children under the age 5.
Accommodates: two adults and a young child

Junior Suites

The Junior Suites epitomise the very best in comfort and refinement, enhanced by their magnificent views over the Grand Canal. These large rooms have a separate dressing and wardrobe area, a central bed, and have an additional small sofa bed, suitable only for very young children under the age 5.
Accommodates: two adults and a young child

Weddings and Honeymoons

Italy is the land of romance, wine and song and contrary to popular belief non nationals can get married here.

Weddings are such a personal and special event in a couples life, you cannot buy an ‘off the shelf package’. So whilst the basics may have a common thread, couples planning on marrying need to discuss their plans with our Wedding co-ordinator in advance who will fashion your dreams into a very special day.
