I stayed on the Barkissimo with a colleague for almost a week. It was the perfect getaway from the bustle of the city. The boat staff were extremely accommodating and a pleasure to chat with. It was an easy ride into the city on the metro. I really enjoyed sleeping with the windows open and listening to the sounds of the water & seagulls. At night I enjoyed dips in the hot tub. This is truly a full service B&B and you'll enjoy your time here especially if you enjoy chatting with other guests & boat crew. Book with confidence!
It was way above expectations. Sometimes I wish I could keep it a secret!
