Close to San Marco square, overlooking a canal only for "gondole" with views of the nearby Grand Canal.
Spacious rooms furnished with antiques and modern pieces. A cozy lounge for relaxing and a kitchen equipped for the continental breakfast.
Our b & b is located in the heart of Venice, close to Piazza San Marco and Fenice Theater, in a ancient building on the first floor with private entrance who overlooks on canal de le Ostreghe, nearby of Grand Canal, where it’s possible to see many gondolas and gondoliers singing,
It has three comfortable bedrooms all with ensuite bathroom, tastefully decorated. The Junior suite has the seating area, windows and small balcony who overlooks on the canal De Le Ostreghe.
The guests share a cozy and large lounge where you can spend moments of relaxation and the kitchen for the continental breakfast prepared with croissant, jam, biscuits, cereals, coffee, tea, milk, juice and yogurt, also available to guests throughout the day.
In the Junior Suite that overlooks on the canal, breakfast is prepared on the table inside the room.

No smoking b&b
Location: San Marco 2439 (Calle de le Ostreghe)
Waterboat stop: line 1, Santa Maria del Giglio (without bridges)
Important: From August 24, 2011 is obligatory the Tourist Tax of 3 euro per person per night to be paid cash locally.
The area is very beautiful and characteristic, between Campo S. Maria del Giglio and Calle XXII Marzo, where reside the most famous hotels in Venice and the exclusive shops of the city. A few steps to S. Mark Square, Rialto bridge and the Fenice Theatre and the most important churches and museums.
Nearby restaurants, pizzerias, bars or typical "wine bars" as well as craft shops and souvenir shops.
But if you leave the main street and turn into any “calletta” you will be in a succession of streets, bridges, squares and immerse you in a typical Venetian quiet with breathtaking views in an atmosphere where time seems to has stopped.
To go around to Venice or to go to the islands of Murano, Burano or Torcello, there are motorboats, ferries and waterbus which stops a few steps from our b & b. Also useful to reach Lido during the Venice Film Festival, rather than the Biennale at the Arsenale area, the exclusive Lido beaches or for who prefer the Alberoni beach free.
A waterbus stop is just a few steps from our residence (Gilgio stop line 1), and in the canal in front of us taxis and gondolas.

très beau séjour aux pays des masques et des rêves et le choix de notre petit nid d'acceuil était excellent il correpondait tout à fait à la déscription et a nos attentes. étant donné tout ce monde en cette période de carnaval un peu bruyant mais acceptable.
la formule avec 3 appartements privés dans ce logement est bien confiné et personne ne se dérange mutuellement.
a y aller sans tarder

freundliche, flexible Gastgeber, B&B in bester Lage aber trotzdem sehr ruhig
It was perfect in every way. Stunning view, great location, beautifully decorated and super clean. A beautiful place to stay I would highly recommend this b&b to anyone wanting a romantic stay in Venice.
C'est un appartement uniquement destiné au airbnb de 5 pièces dont un salon et une cuisine commune. Attention deux choses sont mal listées :
- taxe locale pour touriste à payer en plus sur place (12€ pour 2j pour 2)
- la meilleure chambre (junior suite en photo) n'est pas la chambre que vous aurez pour le prix indiqué sur airbnb. Il faudra ajouter un supplément sur place.
Sinon, c'est un bon pied à terre pour visiter Venise :
+ L'emplacement bien située et facilement accessible en vaporetto
+ L'accueil très sympa et le service en général sur place
- La chambre 1 est assez bruyante car sur la rue.
- Les quiproquos sur le prix qui contribuent dès votre arrivée à nourrir ce sentiment de frustration d'être un touriste pigeon en général à Venise.
- La douche de la chambre (1) au débit super limité, dur de se laver les cheveux pour les nanas.
Jean, merci pour votre avis et excuse moi pour ma Francais.
Quoi qu'il en soit, nous tenons à vous informer que sur Airbnb est écrit que la taxe de séjour ne est pas inclus, mais nous avons vu que ce ne est pas montré sur la section française, mais seulement en Italien et en Anglais, donc nous avons corrigé cela.
Le prix indiqué sur Airbnb est pour une chambre double et nous informons avant de la réservation que le prix pour la Junior suite est différent, comme nous avons fait avec vous. Ce ne est pas notre habitude d'informer les clients après leur arrivée!
Écoutez que les invités sont utilisés comme "pigeons" comme vous avez écrit, est frustrant et ce est une pensée erronée de notre ville. Nous faisons tout notre mieux pour faire sentir nos clients comme à la maison.
It was very beautiful place!!!! Monica provided us some breads, juice, fruits, milk and coffee for breakfast. And the room has individual toilet and shower room. It was very great place!:)
I want to visit her house again.:)
We had such a great time at Giò & Giò charming b&b. The room is beautiful, very cosy, modern and comfortable. The apartment has an excellent location.
We will definitely recommend Giò & Giò charming b&b to anyone and will not hesitate to book it again.
Thanks Monica E Gianni B. for being a good host!!!
We had a delightful stay! The best part was being able to have the view of the canal off the balcony and hear the singing and the music as they passed. That made the trip so magical!
The room itself is a bit dimly lit (even with all the lights on and the curtains pulled back) and the bed was a bit hard for our taste. Also, the house appears to be on a shared thermostat , so we were a bit chilly.
The bathroom was fabulous and the location can't be beat.
The breakfast was just okay and not the typical " Bed and Breakfast" we Americans are used to with a big, hot breakfast freshly prepared. The offerings were quite good though and the coffee in the kitchen was fresh and delicious!
All in all, a great value in the heart of Venice and we would recommend this place!
