I was born in Venice and grown... in Venice... (to be honest, i studied math in Ferrara). I love reading, sports - i play basket- music, and i adore sailing. I'd try to describe my self but probably its for you to say.
We had a great time @ Alessandro's apartment.
Alessandro is a great guest, who really understand hospitallity.
The apartment was really clean. Defenetly a recommandation!
We stayed at Alessandro's Bed 'n' Breakfast - which appeared more like a small hotel to us - for three days and enjoyed it very, very much. Alessandro renovated the whole place a few years ago; it only has four rooms, so there is a nice, personal atmosphere. As far as our own room was concerned, it looked exactly as it appeared in the picture on the internet, including the jacuzzi in the bathroom.
Alessandro is an extremely kind host, always ready to provide his guests with general advice and (valuable!) insider tips. Breakfast was included in the room rate and consisted of fresh bread and croissants from the local bakery, fruit, cheese, coffee, tea, etc. The BnB is located in the Rialto neighborhood, in easy walking distance to all the attractions.
The one (small) drawback was that sound insulation at the BnB was not great - we could often hear other guests and the workers outside; however, this was a problem that we encountered in most other places in Italy as well, so it should not keep you from choosing Alessandro's place to stay.
All in all, we had a great time at this BnB, would go back in a heartbeat if we were to return to Venice, and would recommend it without reservations to any of our friends. Thanks a lot, Alessandro!
Alessandro's home is the ultimate find for travelers to Venice. It's in the perfect location - just a couple blocks from the Rialto area and plenty of bars, but it's off a quiet street on a super quiet ally so there's no noise at all. It's clean, and as pictured. The highlight is Alessandro, himself. He's the most gracious host, taking personal care of us during breakfast (awesome espresso machine!) and telling us all about this city he grew up in. He even lent some books about the city that are far more personal than any LP or RS guidebook. We will recommend this to our friends and family and hope to come again.
I can't recommend staying at this B&B enough. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable, and Alessandro is a wonderful host. He really made us feel welcome and helped us make the most out of our short stay in Venice, which really contributed to our enjoyment of Venice. Staying here was a highlight of our honeymoon (and the jacuzzi was a luxury we didn't get anywhere else!).
My husband and I had a great stay at the well-located Ca' Barb B&B. Our room was tastefully furnished and very clean; Alessandro was a really friendly and attentive host and always willing to provide useful information. Breakfast was excellent with fantastic cappuccino and fresh pastries. All in all our warmest recommendations!
We had an absolutely wonderful stay in Venice! Alessandro never hesitated to make sure that we enjoyed our stay and gave a lot of valuable insights about the city, restaurants, sights, etc.
And the breakfast was delicious!
If you want to come to Venice, this is the place to stay. Our warmest recommendations!
Alessandro è stato un ottimo ospite e un cicerone d'eccellenza. Grazie a lui abbiamo visitato una Venezia lontani dalle calle affollate e gustato i sapori della cucina veneziana. Il B&B è ottimo tanto per organizzazione quanto per qualità delle stanze e dei servizi offerti. La colazione è stata veramente deliziosa! Grazie e a presto!
ein wunderschöner Aufenthalt, super Lage und sehr hilfsbereiter Gastgeber! für gratis Wasserflaschen und Soft-Getränke großes Plus! insgesamt absolut empfehlenswert!
Tusen takk for en fantastisk helg. Vår vert Alessandro var super. Tusen takk for alle gode råd og tips. Kan anbefale B&B på det varmeste. Rent og pent og koseligt. Frokosten var super! Flott å få tips og råd om hvor en skal gå og hvor en skal spise. Alessandro om restaurantvalg var super. Spør om en fiskerestaurant og en kjøttrestaurant. Men bestill gjerne bord først. Her var det stor (website hidden) kommer gjerne tilbake til B&B og Alessandro!

Alessandro's B&B is a perfect place to stay in Venice, Its very central just meters away from Rialto Bridge in a nice quiet street with plenty of bars and restaurants near by. The room itself is lovely, nice comfy bed and quality bedding and furnishings. Room included a good coffee machine which was nice. Jacuzzi was an added bonus. There is free water and selection of soft drinks for the guests which I found very useful. Breakfast was delicious with added benefit of being served when you wake up... rather than having a very string early cut off time. Alessandro also allowed us a flexible check out which was lovely. The books provided were very insightful and made me see Venice from completely different prospective, definitely worth a read. Overall a great place to stay :-)
