Locanda ai Bareteri
Ranked #24 of 479 Venice B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 September 2012

I stayed here with my husband last weekend (mis sept) for 3 nights when we went to venice. We took the public bus No5 tickets purchased in the airport information desk cost 6euros each including luggage for a single journey to Piazza Roma or the bus station remember when you get on the bus go to the electronic machine and hold the card to the proximity reader to validate ( If you don't you can get a fine), do not try to stick it into the other machine thats the wrong one it may actually even be redundant! You may see a notice on the bus saying DO NOT DISTURB at the drivers window! From here its a 20min walk with luggage or you get on the vaporetto from here, of course you can get the vaporetto from the airport to the Rialto bridge which is not far but takes approx 50mins. Water taxi's are also available but they are alot more expensive.
Venice hotels are extremly expensive and for a B&B near St Marco Square and not too far from the Rialto bridge this is a good find and Very good for a B&B. The staff are great the hotel is clean and the rooms are ensuite but it is as i said basic. There is no fridge, safe or Tv in the rooms this maynot be a problem for others but i really just needed somewhere to keep our bottled water cold and there wasn't anywhere!
Breakfast wasn't our cup of tea but it was typical of what the locals were eating when you went out. some fruit, a croissant ( no cheese or ham)and a bread roll. Condiments such as jams, nutella etc are on the side with some yogurts and a cup of very strong coffee (we didn't like it!).
The staff are very helpful and you can go and see them in the office on the 1st floor any time of the day and the evening, there is a guy we called the crazy one who is extremly enthusiastic and very knowledgable, he is able to draw all the vaporetto stops and route numbers onto a map for you and give you help for any restaurant booking general info, tours etc. As with all squares such as St Marco a glass of prosecco will cost approx 16 euros and 18 euro's in Harrys bar for a Billin, but I reckon those things have got to be done whilst in venice. Most other little cafes have great drinks at alot cheaper prices but remember that restaurants won't just give you a drink unless they have tables outside that aren't set with cutlery. There is a fantastic restaurant approx 10mins from the hotel and over the rialto in San Polo area where you will find La Porta D'Acqua you have to go its fantastic look it up its got great reviews also there is an indian restaurant if you get a craving its fantastic ~ Ganesh Ji, Rio Marin, give it a try! enjoy your venice adventure fantastic windy streets, great food and drink what more could a couple want!

Staff (Laura-Manager and Cheryl-Housekeeper) are very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Provides genuine care and gives all info you need about Venice sights, restaurants, transport, etc.
Very good location, if you can ignore the wonderful shops along the way it's only 5 minutes from Rialto bridge and 5 minutes from San Marco Square. Entrance door is in a quiet street. If you're a light sleeper, ask for a room on the quiet side of the building as the other street is busy/noisy shopping/walking lane.
Rooms, bathroom/toilet, sheets, towels are very clean like a 4-star hotel, air condition is powerful, bed is perfect, not too soft, not too hard. Like most buildings in Venice there are no elevators and the rooms start from 2/F level. It will be a challenge for elderly guests and if you have bulky/heavy luggage.
Get up early or late for breakfast as the dining room is busy at around 9am.
We'll be back!

Room Tip: Rooms 01 & 02 are on the quiet side of the building. Room 02 is big.

This is not just another good B&B, it is perhaps one of the best for customer care and service. Upon dragging my heavy suitcases through the narrow streets of Venice, the person at the reception (open during office hours) insisted on carrying them upstairs, I tried to protest but without success. Then, after handing the keys he gave us a thorough debriefing about the city. Impressive, never received so much valuable tips from any b&b or hotel anywhere.
The house has many stairs, of course an old building. The rooms are big by Italian standards, bathroom spotless and a/c works quite well but more noisy than the a/c of a hotel (better ask instruction on how to use it, the remote is a bit confusing). Internet is fast. What else? No problems with noise as we had a room on the side of a quiet street. There are other rooms on the side of a busy street (no cars of course but still).
Location is perhaps the best part. Two steps from San Marco. No way to get lost if you use the map from the website. At SM square take the only street under an arcade all straight until the end (ferrari shop), turn right and then left on the second street. After less than one minute you find your first bridge (oh yes, all the way is completely flat without bridges, except this one). There, on the bridge, look for the narrow street under some columns, enter that small street, and turn right ... you will see a sleeping grizzly bear hanging above the door of the b&b.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the side of the quiet street (the adress of the b&b), if relevant ask for a roo...

This little hotel is in a fantastic location, right between Rialto bridge and St. Mark's place so it's central and you don't have to walk too far to see the big sites. The staff is extraordinarily helpful with restaurant tips and anything that comes up. My room was clean and pretty large. The bed was pretty comfortable. There was no TV, but who's watching TV in Venice? LOL. There is free Wifi and I had a good connection the whole time. The breakfast is pretty standard for Europe, yogurt, juice, croissants, hot drink-- but considering the lack of restaurants that serve breakfast in the area and the lack of a grocery store it's imperative to have an hotel that serves some, and since it's included it's a nice deal.

Room Tip: It can be a little loud if you are over the street, ask for a room away from the street
