Alessandro was an excellent host who gave us fantastic recommendations of local restaurants and sights. The Airbnb was clean, cozy, and perfect for a romantic weekend trip.
Our stay at Alessandro's BnB was fantastic. We felt incredibly welcome at all times. It was the perfect combination of a professional hotel-like setting with the unique warmth of a home. The room was very clean and had all I would have access to in a hotel, breakfast was fantastic. Alessandro was attentive, had great suggestions and readily accessible.
It was a very pleasant and homely stay at Ca' Barba B&B and Alessandro has been a great host, offering very useful tips towards the planning our itinerary in Venice. Conveniently located in San Polo, we were able to explore most of Venice's sights on foot, enjoying the view of Grand Canal from the nearby Rialto Bridge. Breakfast was a simple yet delightful spread and Alessandro definitely made our stay in Venice memorable with his recommendation of sightseeing and dining options.
Alessandro was a lovely host, answering our questions and providing personal recommendations over breakfast each morning. The room was just as advertised, and the B&B was well situated: peaceful neighbourhood and an easy walk to anywhere we wanted to go. I'd definitely recommend Ca Barba, 5 stars.
Staying at Alessandro's bead and breakfast was a wonderful experience. The rooms were modern and very clean, everything I could think of was around. Best part was having breakfast with Alessandro and talking about Venice, the best spots to go to, history and meany other things. Highly recommended!
My friend and I stayed two nights at Alessandro's place and we'd have to say that this was absolutely the best part in our trip. Check-in and check-out time are both flexible. Alessandro is incredibly helpful, welcoming and friendly to us. He picked us up from the water bus stop, helped us with the heavy luggage and provided us with wonderful books about Venice. He recommended us to go to some quiet places where no tourists were so that we could see the true Venice. He also recommended popular local restaurants with reasonable prices.
As for the room , I couldn't think of anything negative to say about. It locates in a quiet neighbourhood but it's also close to the public transport (less than 5 mins walk). Our room looks exactly the same from the picture and it is very clean as the cleaning lady comes everyday. The breakfast was our favourate part! Alessandro offered a range of food and drinks in the morning and we still miss that now.
Anyway, it is just a perfect place to stay in Venice and you will know why I'm saying that when you meet this fantastic host--Alessandro :-) I will definitely stay at his place if I visit Venice agian
