Palazzo Barbarigo sul Canal Grande | Venice

Palazzo Barbarigo sul Canal Grande | Venice

The Vibe: Art Deco meets Baroque meets Moulin Rouge in a 16th-century palazzo on the Grand Canal.

The Area: Arrive in Hollywood style by boat or gondola at the hotel’s private dock. Palazzo Barbarigo places you perfecly for exploring the lively San Polo district, with the Rialto only a short stroll away. Many more of the most important landmarks and attractions in Venice are also within easy reach of the property, either on foot or by a short vaporetto ride.

The DNA: Probably Venice’s most sexy hotel, Palazzo Barbarigo is set in a converted 16th-century Venetian palazzo right on the Grand Canal. It blends modern boudoir glamour with Art Deco chic. Dramatic contemporary furnishings, historic elements, parquet floors, feathered lampshades and massive smoky ceilings draw light in to the seductive dark interiors. The 1920s-feel lounge bar is a decidedly slinky spot to sink a few martinis or expertly mixed Barbarigo cocktails – inside, it’s all black velvet sofas and upholstered wall panels. An enchanting atmosphere, perfectly blended with the seductive and romantic soul of this wonderful city.

Suite-Me-Up: Each guestroom is a decent size and has a canal view, so you’re onto a winner whichever you pick – although if you’ve set your heart on Grand Canal views, check in to the Grand Canal Suite and you’ll find prosecco chilling in your room on arrival, and the best table in the house; the intimate balcony seat for two – will be reserved for breakfast each morning (and to be enjoyed by other guests the rest of the day).
