She was very interested to know where we had come from, what we thought of Venice and where we were off to next. She loved Venice and visits regularly. It was lovely to speak with someone who was travelled, and interested in our adventures, offering advice on places to see.

The hotel also had a lovely communal terrace, which is very well signposted and has a great

Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda ai Bareteri Venice
We stayed at Locanda ai Bareteri during the Venice Carnival. It is situated just near the Rialto bridge so it has a very central location and at this time of year many of the surrounding streets are completely mobbed. However, once you turn off into the tiny side street that has the entrance to the Bareteri in it, it is peaceful, empty and charming. We had a very friendly welcome by one of the proprietors of the Bareteri and the double rooms we had were spacious, clean and tastefully decorated - all marble and wood. At this time of year prices everywhere in Venice are high, but I think this place was very reasonable considering. We would definitely stay here again. I would also recommend the small restaurant that is opposite the hotel entrance for very friendly and helpful service and good food.
A Great Place to Stay
Simple but elegant decor. Very clean. Friendly welcome. Great value. Loved staying here. Children were made very welcome. Ai Bareteri is centrally located, so it's not quiet (although shutters block out most noise). No air condititioning, but even in July this was not a problem - fans were sufficient. Highly recommend.
Did not honor our reservations-- had reserved the hotel last Feb
We've stayed at this hotel several years. We reserved 4 rms in Feb 2005 for Feb 2006. We contacted them in March saying we'd take all the rms for a group of 32 people. We wrote in May and June--restating this-- there was no reply. Then when we wrote to submit a list of guests we were told not only did we not have rms for the 32 people, but our rms which had been reserved in Febr. had been given away as well.
Pleasant Place to Stay
An excellent location to explore Venice. A few minutes from St. Marks Square and the Rialto Bridge. We were on the 5th floor. No lift. We were ok but could be a problem for some people. Room clean with some interesting furniture. No hair dryer. Basic continental breakfast. But it was served on a plate. Service was fine and I was given a hand with my luggage. We were given a map and a short introduction about travelling around Venice, which was helpful. Water and soft drinks expensive around the area of the hotel but a short walk over the bridge it was much better. We did find a supermarket which was even better. Plenty of places to eat. We would stay again.
What a find! Location that can't be beaten - half way between St. Marks & Rialto Bridge, friendly staff, clean rooms.
Claudio and Sergio were great; very helpful with information, restaurant recommendations and maps. (For delicious seafood go to Acqua Pazza.)
Breakfast is nothing special, certainly not like a B&B in the US. One thing they need to improve on- wipe the walls of dead mosquitos before the next guest arrives. We found our room with a few bloody dead mosquitos on the walls and I think they should be wiped off, even the walls touched up with white paint before the next guest arrives. Otherwise, it was lovely.
The price was right- we paid 80 Euro for Sat-Tues in July for a room with private bath and AC.
We found the Locanda ai Bareteri on the internet whilst searching for accomodation for our first trip to Italy in early April 2005.
Great location and value for money
Just got back from a short stay at this great little hotel/B&B. The owner is welcoming, friendly and helpful.
The room just right - simple, spacious, immaculately clean and really warm to get back to (early March and there was still snow outside!) 3 nights for only £200 - terrific value considering the location. Only a few minutes from San Marco and the Rialto, with a picturesque little canal just a few yards away at the end of the alley.
We'll certainly be returning.
The Locanda ai Bareteri (note it's misspelled with two T's in its listing here) is a fine value. The location, midway between Rialto Bridge and San Marco Square, is ideal, but it sits on a quiet, almost forgotten "middle" alley, so you'll need a bit of luck or good directions to find it.
