“Great establishment in unbelievable location”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Our stay at Teatro B&B was great. First, I couldn’t believe the location—6 minute walk to San Marco, but on a quiet back street across the canal from the Teatro Fenice. The leaning tower of the nearby Santa Maria del Giglio served as a great landmark to navigate out way back after a day of exploring. We took the ferry from the airport and got off at San Marco. From there, even with our luggage it was, maybe, a 10 minute walk to the door. Unless you want to spend a lot of time in Cannaregio, the Teatro’s location can’t be beat. Literally half an hour or less to just about anything you’ll want to see in Venice. The house is clean and quiet. We opted to splurge on our room in Venice so we stayed in the Amber Room, Elenora’s largest room. The bed is comfortable. The bathroom is new in a euro-chic style, and the view off our tiny private balcony was delightful as the canal below is on the gondola route from the nearby San Moise station. Elenora is a proud Venetian eager to offer advice over breakfast after she makes your favorite form of caffeine. Breakfasts were simple but satisfying and abundant. Elenora was also very welcoming of our 9-year old daughter and provided a real bed for her in our room and even presented her with a going-away gift on our last morning.
After a lot of research ahead of time, we were extremely lucky with all our accommodations in Italy. The Teatro B&B is one of the less-reviewed places we stayed, so we had our fingers crossed, but were delighted to discover we’d made a fine choice.

Room Tip: Our review is based on staying in the Amber Room, Elenora's largest, but most expensive.

We really enjoyed our stay. Our room was beautiful. It was on a quiet little side street where we could even see listen and see gondoliers. The owner was wonderful at giving us directions and her recommendations were excellent. If we get the opportunity to travel there again we would definitely stay there again.

Staying at B&B was an amazing and rewarding experience.
If you want to feel the real atmosphere of a family-owned Venetian house, I would warmly recommend to go there. Fresco paintings, wood furniture and marble floor are genuine and date from several centuries ago.
In addition, anecdotes of Eleonora about Venitian lifestyle will enrich your day.
About the room: The amber room was quiet, spacious, bright and has a nice balcony overlooking the canal. You will have the chance to hear serenades of gondoliers J.
Bathroom furniture is well-equipped and a special mention for cleanliness of the room.
About the location: Very convenient. A few mins to reach Accademia, about 10/15 mins to San Marco square and to Rialto market. In addition, easy to find and to access from vaporetto stop.
About the breakfast: Great variety of food and drinks. Nutella, cheese, ham, cereals, fresh fruits and even marble syrup, it is all you need to begin your day. Do not forget to taste the Italian coffee, it is just so tasty.
If you want to spend great time in Venice, just go there and last but not least Eleonora is very helpful and knows the city very well. Arrivederci and grazie mille Eleonora :-)

Room Tip: Enjoy the canal view with the Amber Room!

The location of this B&B is perfect. The room was extremely clean and a nice size. We were out and about all day so it was just fine for us. The balcony was lovely, it overlooked a canal. The only downside is when we got there, we had to carry our luggage up a lot of stairs. With that being said, my husband was very capable of doing so.
I would recommend this B&B.

Eleonora - what a hostess!!!! We stayed at B&B Al Teatro for 7 nights in September, 2013. Al Teatro is in the heart of Venice, easily accessible to San Marco and the Grand Canal. The room was large and was equipped with everything you needed. The bathrooms were also large and well appointed. Eleonora is there to make your vacation special. She gave us great suggestions on places to eat, transportation, and places to visit. She goes all out for her visitors. We will definitely stay there again if we ever return to Venice. Would highly recommend to family and friends visiting Venice.

We stayed here in March 2014 and had a wonderful experience. We stayed in the triple - it was quite comfortable & we had a great view of the canal (which means accordion music & gondolier singing!) the location was great too but the best part was Eleonora who made us feel like family! I think my brother wanted to stay with her. GRAZIE!!

We stayed at B&B Al Teatro during the Carnival at the begging of March 2014 and I have to say that there is nothing more you could ask from a B&B. Perfect location, only a few minutes walk from San Marco square and other places of interest, as well as easily accessible travel to the airport/train station etc. We stayed in the Amber room, which was huge, super clean and had the cutest little balcony overlooking the canal. The room was equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Eleonora, the owner, has been the perfect hostess for us. Except from preparing us a great breakfast every morning, she gave us many suggestions for places to visit, restaurants, transportation info and she even booked us a table in one of her favorite restaurants. All her suggestions were superb and it was really nice talking to her and finding out more about the history of the house and life in Venice in general. All in all, it's been a great experience and not only we would definitely stay there again in our next visit to Venice, but we would recommend it to any of our friends and family that are planning to travel there.
Eleonora, thanks for making my birthday even more special! Wish you the best of luck and hope to see you again soon!
