We liked the CA' Pisani. Close to the Canal, great area,amazing decor and artwork, very clean, big rooms,huge jacuzzi tub, internet, great breakfast, great restaurant,service. Its a nice change from a lot of the other style hotels. After walking all over Italy this was a refreshing place to go. No musty smell like other hotels we stayed in Venice.

My husband and I stayed at the Locanda al Gambero in October 2001. It is only a couple of blocks from Piazza San Marco. We requested a room overlooking a canal with a adjoining bathroom. I wasn't expecting much but the room was small but very nice. We could see and hear the gondoliers singing when they went by. The bathroom was all marble and modern. I would absolutely stay there again. I think it was around $150 a night maybe less but it was definitely not more.

Hi Ira.

Where did you find the excellent reviews on Locanda Barbarigio? I too am considering this hotel but am unable to locate reviews.

Hi Iregeo,
First thing I did was a text search. Of course, only one item came up and it wasn't the right one.
Sorry I can't help, but there was a series of glowing reports about two months ago.

Hi Iregeo,
Disregard previous post. Do a text search on 'Locanda Barbarigo'.

We stayed at Locanda Sturion, wonderful location near the Rialto Bridge and wonderful room overlooking the Grand Canal. They have a webcam on the website, have a look.

Hi Jackie--

I too am going to Venice in May and was lucky enough to get a reservation at the Accademia Maravege -- however, it was a little tricky. I first went through the VeniceBy.com Web site and much to my disappointment, they told me the hotel was sold out. I then was able to find the hotel's direct Web site and got a reservation the very next day. Here it is, just in case you need it ... www.pensioneaccademia.it.

Good luck!

We were in Venice last month and stayed at the Luna Baglioni which is adjacent to San Marco square. It is a gorgeous hotel and the service it first rate. Check the Baglioni website and Orbitz for the best deals.

Our family of four stayed at Locanda Barbarigo (because of positive comments posted here) last June. We stayed in the Rosaura suite for 180 Euros. It is probably a 10-minute walk from St. Mark's Square. Looks like a slum on the outside, but is absolutely beautiful inside. I would stay there again. Just take plenty of cash, because when we stayed there she didn't take credit cards, and I had to run around and find an ATM (the only one that would take our particular card was in St. Mark's Square) to get cash to pay the bill.

Hope this helps.

Hotel Galleria. Perfecto. We stayed there on our honeymoon. We used Karen Brown for the whole trip. This place should have been in her book.
