Or front row bed lying and listening to the Gondoliers singing below. We got the biggest room for our family with 3 windows looking down the canals on 2 sides. At times, there were trafffic jams with gondolas merging into tight turns right at our bedroom corner. We could watch them emerging from 4 different canals just from our room's windows. That was the best treat.

Breakfast was good with choices of the usual items. The room was a little tight for 4 people but considering we had the best view and free music show, it was a good trade-off for Venice. To get to our bedroom, we had to go up one and half flight of stairs. With our compact luggage, it was OK but be careful if you have heavier baggage.

Loved the gondolier's singing throughout the day especially while napping in bed.

My daughter and I spent five days at Al Teatro in January. We stayed in the Green Room which was spacious, quiet and beautifully decorated with a view of the canal. Eleonora was extremely helpful with all our questions and gave us good recommendations of places to visit in Venice. The B&B is at a dead end street near the Opera House. So while its only a ten minute walk to St Mark's Square it is very peaceful We loved Venice in the winter. The days started off foggy and then cleared. After a delicious and varied breakfast we walked and explored all the different areas and then loved coming home at night to the B&B. Could not think of a better place to stay in Venice. Thanks Eleonora for a most memorable visit.

Room Tip: There are only three rooms and I am sure they are all lovely. I imagine the Green Room would be the...

My wife and I spent five nights at Al Teatro B&B during the Christmas season, and we couldn't have been happier with our stay. The location was great, with our very nice room overlooking a canal, the breakfast, while simple, was quite nice enough for us, and the hostess, Eleonora, was one of the best we've ever met at any B&B.

First, the location. It was less than a five minute walk to Piazza San Marco, which put us very near the heart of Venice. We liked this location, as it made it easy for us to get where we wanted to be, no matter where in Venice that was. It might have been a bit daunting for us to find the B&B, which is tucked away in a quiet corner of Venice, but we were both smart enough to follow Eleonora's very precise directions, as well as use google maps to plot our route from the Alilaguna stop, so we had no problem.

We stayed in the Green Room, which was a nice size, had the previously mentioned great canal view, and featured what was, hands down, the best bathroom we've EVER had in Europe. Not only was it not cramped, it had good lighting and a spacious shower.
We loved it!

As for the breakfast, as I said we found the simple fare offered, which, while generous, included no hot food options, perfectly acceptable. Some, who look for something more elaborate, may be disappointed, but this comes down to a matter of choice, and our choice was that the breakfast offered was plenty good enough for us.

But it was really Eleonora who made this place special. She's a life-long resident of Venice, and really knows her city. Almost every day she gave us advice as to what might be worth taking a look at, and every time we took her advice we were glad we did. We both found her to be a sweetheart, as well, and our chats with her made our stay that much more pleasant.

So that's it. Al Teatro B&B was a great place to stay in Venice, and on our next visit to this most fascinating city, we'll be sure and stay there again.

My wife, my then 3 y.o. daughter, and I stayed at this wonderful B&B for 3 nights in March 2011. We had a magnificent experience due largely to the wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable person that Eleonora is, and to the accommodation itself. I should have written this review then, but I got lazy. Now that I am thinking of returning to Venice this coming year, I felt compelled to share my thoughts with you all, as this place had left such a good impression on us, that it's one of the reasons we are returning to Venice. We had a large room with a balcony overlooking a canal, and the experience of waking up to the unique sights and sounds of a city awakening and going to work on it's waterways was incomparable. The building is about 600 years old, built next to the famous La Fenice opera house, and walking distance to many iconic sights. We felt completely engulfed by this unique culture , and that's how we started out our daily quest every morning to discover new sights, sounds and tastes of this fascinating city and it's people. Eleanora was also an excellent hostess. It was obvious to us she cared a lot about her guests. Her advice was priceless, as that combination of knowledge and sincerity is a rare find. She earned our trust very quickly and in the end we were the better for it. When it came time to leave, we felt like we were saying goodbye to a friend who had shared her heart with us to ensure we'd have the most enjoyable time ever in her town, a town that she was very passionate about.

My husband & I spent the last night of our Italian vacation at this B&B. Thanks to Eleonora we could make the most of our 1 day stay. The location of this B&B is perfect. Very close to the Vaporetto stop and walking distance from St. Mark's square. Eleonora was also very helpful with her knowledge of restaurants and tourist-trap warnings. I highly recommend this place and will be sure to check in here again in my next trip.
