Where to start? Daniela was the perfect hostess and we simply couldn't have wished or imagined a more welcoming and warm place to stay. It was truly a home away from home. From the personal pickup after getting lost trying to find Al Gallion after arriving in the middle of the night (thank you Daniela for saving us) to the home made breakfasts every morning (home made jams and brownies and delicious fruit salad) to the daily smiles, kindness, generosity and warmth. Daniela's English is very good (even though she doesn't think so) an is full of interesting, in depth and relevant information. This covers transport, maps (a detailed and personalised one to suit your daily itinerary) and the architecture, sites and history of Venice. Daniela should be a tour guide if she had spare time! She also had some good suggestions for restaurants.
The location was great! Really close to S Lucia train station and the Piazzale Roma (5-10 minute walk) and once you get the hang of it, is quite easy to find. Venice is a maze so I imagine any hotel of BnB will be a bit tricky to locate at the start.
The rooms - it was just like being at home! Only much neater and cleaner (and in my case, prettier and more spacious). It was a joy to come back to after a long day walking around the city.
I really can't praise Al Gallion and Daniela enough, and only wish that all BnBs that we visit will be of the same calibre.
