“Love our stay at Al Teatro”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We stayed for 3 nights at Al Teatro B&B and it was wonderful.

Our room: opens to 2 canals with 3 windows and the view is lovely. The canals are frequented by gondolas and in the late afternoons, we often opened the windows to enjoy the arias sang by singers on the passing gondolas, and waved at the tourists sailing pass. I occasionally sat on the wide window ledge to enjoy the view with a cup of tea. Our room is roomy and clean. Wonderful!

The location: very easy to get to from the waterbus stop, even with our luggage. The B&B is very near to St Mark’s square, Rialto Bridge, Dosoduro, Musica a Palazzo (which we enjoyed very much) and other major Venice attractions, and we walked everywhere. We usually woke up at 6am each day, walked to St Mark’s square or other campo to enjoy Venice as it was waking up (and experiencing Venice without hordes of other tourists is magical), then went back to the B&B for breakfast and lively conversations with Eleonora and other tourists staying at B&B, before heading out again.

The hostess: Eleonora is gracious, informative and friendly. Breakfast is good with a wonderful selection of fruits. Fruits and a small selection of biscuits are left in the breakfast room, in case we needed a snack during the day. She gave good recommendations for restaurants in the neighborhood we wanted to visit, as well as good advise on our itinerary. As we were leaving on the 4pm train on our last day, she readily agreed to us leaving our bags at the B&B, and gave us an access pass to get into the B&B to retrieve our bags, and even showed us a bathroom we could use after check out. Very organized and generous.

Thanks, Eleonora, we had a wonderful time in Venice, and staying at your B&B added to the magic 

Room Tip: Book early to choose the room with 3 windows over looking the canal.

We spent two nights at Al Teatro B&B. Like most tourists, we got lost trying to find the place. :-) But with a bit of help from some friendly people, we located it. We then called Eleanora from a nearby hotel because we hadn't been able to give her an arrival time because we were driving from Pompeii. She arrived a few minutes later, helped us haul our heavy bags up a long flight of stairs and got us settled in. Our room with balcony overlooking the canal was amazing. It was huge and had a lovely large bathroom. Everything was immaculate.

Eleanor provided us with recommendations for restaurants and things to do. The restaurants were amazing! We can't remember the names of the two where we had our dinners, but one is a tiny little place where you have to wait outside if there's no room to wait inside (they gave us a little glass of wine and an appetizer while we waited). The other is one of Eleanora's favorites. Wonderful food and wine at both.

Breakfasts were very good. Our favorite part of breakfast was that Eleanor made "American coffee." It was good and strong, so we told her it was really "Canadian coffee" since we love strong coffee in Canada. :-)

The location was ideal. We walked almost everywhere and took the water buses when we got tired. (Note for tourists: Don't have your backpack on your back on the water buses - you might get yelled at by the locals! :-)

Of course we took the requisite gondola ride. It's pretty expensive - 80Euro - but go during the day. You'll pay more in the evening and the canals will be very congested. We actually saw a "traffic jam" one evening.

The funniest part of our stay in Venice was when we met another North American tourist on one of the 400+ bridges. He looked at us and said, "What's with all these bridges!?" My response was, "Well, I guess it beats the alternative of swimming?"

We loved Venice and we loved Al Teatro B&B.

We just spent 4 nights at Al Teatro Bed & Breakfast and it was wonderful. From the moment Eleanora opened the door, welcomed us and helped us with our luggage up the flight of stairs, we were thrilled. Our room with the balcony overlooking the canal was spacious, clean, comfortable, and may I add, entertaining, with the gondoliers below the balcony singing and playing their accordions -- what fun! Breakfast was delicious and we looked forward to Eleonora's tips each day on where to eat and the best way to see the sights. We loved Venice, and Al Teatro Bed & Breakfast, just across the canal from the opera house and very close to San Marco, met our needs perfectly. Also, it was very easy (and cheap) to use the #1 Vaporetto from the train station to the San Giglio stop and walk to the B&B with our luggage....and we are not young.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Al Teatro in May. The room with balcony was spacious and since this was our first trip to Venice, waking up to the singing gondoliers was really special.
Eleanora was a perfect host and provided us with a delicious breakfast along with good conversation and information about what to do and where to go.
We would definitely stay there again, and will recommend it to our friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Amber room and it was quite comfortable.

We had the pleasure of staying here for three nights and it was simply amazing. The views and breakfast alone would be enough, but it was Eleonora that was such a hospitable and a wonderful host that made our stay simply amazing. Thank you!!

We were there 4 nights in Venice and stayed at the Al Teatro Bed & Breakfast. The location was perfect, was close to all the attractions (When you are not Lost)! Accommodation was great woke up to gondolas and singing each morning and
the afternoons, the room on the corner was fantastic. Elleanora the owner was fantastic with some great recommendations for dinning and traveling around Venice. Was always nice to go down to breakfast in the morning for what ever coffee style you wanted and a nice chat, very nice to sit around and chat with the other people staying at the same time from around the world. Could not fault and suggest you listen to the owner she will give you some great tips. Would recommend to all friends coming to Venice for the first time. only suggestion would be is the beds are hard, but then again all the beds in Italy we had were hard lol.Thanks for a great time regards Ron & Ros

Room Tip: I would book into the room on the corner to get the gondolas and the views when they go past. great...

My husband and I have stayed at Al Teatro twice now -- once in November 2011 (romantic couple's getaway) and once in April 2014 (on a trip with my husband's parents). Before going to Italy the first time, I did extensive research on where to stay, and booked this B&B based on the recommendations in several guidebooks and the exceptional ratings on TripAdvisor. It was so fantastic that I did not look anywhere else for our second trip -- I booked Al Teatro right away! The location simply can't be beat -- you are literally a 5-10 minute walk to Piazza San Marco (St. Mark's Square), Basilica di San Marco (St. Mark's Basilica) and Palazzo Ducale (the Doge's Palace). The accomodations are awesome -- spacious rooms with en suite bathrooms and comfortable beds in an atmospheric historic building in the heart of Venice. The floors are made of beautiful marble and there is a fresco on the ceiling of the breakfast room. The house has been in the owner Eleanora's family for hundreds of year, and she is the real highlight of this place! She is a splendid host -- she is warm and welcoming and will take care of you like an old family friend. She used to live in the B&B with her family, but has recently moved to an apartment very close by. She is still available all day, and will give you her cell phone number in case you ever need anything while she is out. She provides a delicious and filling breakfast each morning, during which my family and I chatted with her extensively about what it is like to live in Venice, Italian politics, her family, etc. She remembered my husband and I from our first visit, and made my in-laws (who had never traveled abroad in their lives) feel right at home. She recommended several authentic, delicious places to eat and arranged for a private water taxi to take us to the airport (and then called and hassled them in true Italian style when they were late!). I simply can't say enough about Al Teatro -- this place is a gem, and if you stay there you will fall in love with it like we did!

Room Tip: If it is available, you definitely want to book the Amber Room! It is slightly more expensive, but...
