“Grazie, Eleanora!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stayed at this perfectly located B n B in the heart of Venice, overlooking a canal---picturesque, walking distance or water-transportation close to everything, lovely room, and with the most helpful owner, Eleanora, that you could ask for. As an example, she arranged for a water taxi to pick us up at 5 a.m. so that we could catch an early flight, and as the water taxi was taking off, we heard the taxi driver's phone ring--it was Eleanora, checking to be sure he'd picked us up on time. Way beyond the call of duty! We recommend this gem with great enthusiasm.

We loved our stay in Venice and felt like we were in the perfect B and B. The location is delightful, right on a canal with the music of the gondoliers softly floating through the room with easy access from the Grand Canal. Eleonora added her personal touch with her recommendations and explanations. Already dreaming of our return trip.

We really can't say enough good things about our experience at Al Teatro! Venice was our introduction to Italy and we could not have got off to a better start. Eleonora was gracious, personable and charming, and she took wonderful care of our family during our week-long stay. She went well out of her way to guide us to the hidden corners and secret wonders of the city. Eleonora appeared to have endless connections to restaurants, theatres, and taxis which she used to ensure that we were well-treated wherever we went. The breakfast conversations with her about the history, culture and politics of Venice were priceless. The singing of the gondoliers as they passed under our balcony each night, was pure magic. We will most certainly return to Al Teatro Bed & Breakfast again!

We were sooooo fortunate to have stayed at this charming and quaint B&B. Eleonora was absolutely a wonderful and helpful hostess. In addition to be a convenient and quiet location that we wheeled our bags to, the best part has to be the rooms. Ours was a corner room with two large open windows that were right above where 3 narrow and tranquil canals merge. It provided for a very romantic few days. We sat in the window drinking Prosecco and watched as the gondoliers passed by only 10 feet below us.

If you're looking for a very romantic few nights without having to deal with the frenzy and crowds associated with hotels, then I highly recommend staying here. It's a great place from which to tour Venezia!

Room Tip: Travel tip, If you're there during a busy season be sure to pay an 10-20 Euro and go around suns...

The day we arrived at Eleonora's B&B was a magical day. My husband and I had travelled there from Germany and it was our very first experience being in Italy. We corresponded with Eleonora several times before our arrival and she was as helpful then as she was in person. The B&B had old Venetian charm, exactly what we'd hoped for! The B&B was tucked just slightly off the Grand Canal which made it feel quaint and quiet but was just a short walk from everywhere you would want to go while in Venice. Looking out the window of our room and seeing the gondolas go by added to the magic of the ambiance that was already perfect. Eleonora helped us find our way around and provided excellent information. She had a quiet sense of humor that was so charming. We enjoyed visiting with her during breakfast asking her questions about life in Venice. We couldn't of asked for a more perfect experience and will never forget our stay. We hope we will be fortunate enough to travel back someday and stay at Eleonora 's B&B again!!

It is easy to see why Eleonora has made Al Teatro such a success. From first contact until departure she is efficient, very helpful , intuitive but not obtrusive. Al Teatro is centrally located with direct watertaxi access or a 5 minute easy walk from the Alilaguna / Vaporetto stop (S Maria Giglio). The rooms are spotlessly clean and well equipped with air con, wifi, fridge, TV (Sky News/ CNN etc) and most importantly for us Brits.... The Kettle ! Yes, the canal views and the atmosphere are great but for us the best thing was the most comfortable bed we have slept in for many years. This was our first visit to Al Teatro and although we have stayed at many other hotels and B&B's in Venice we would thoroughly recommend it and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Amber Room is nice with the balcony but next time we would hope to stay in the Pink Room with views...

Nice rooms, great atmosphere - the gondolas with singing and accordian playing musicians travel by right below your room several times each day - and most of all great advice on Venice from Eleonora. This is definitely the B & B to stay in Venice.
