Le Guglie Bed and Breakfast is a charming yellow building located in the historical centre of Venice, in the neighborhood of the ancient Jewish Getto, a few steps from Rialto and St. Mark's Square.
The property overlooks the Cannaregio Canal which is directly connected to the world famous Grand Canal, well known for its beautiful and fascinating palaces full of history.
We are located in the Cannaregio district, 30 minutes by boat from the Marco Polo International Airport, 5 minutes walking distance from the Santa Lucia Train Station and 10 minutes from Piazzale Roma, the Venetian terminal for buses and cars.
The closest public transport Actv stop water bus is "Guglie" at about 50 metres from us.
All the rooms are situated at the second floor of the building which has been recently renovated. Each room is furnished with an en-suite bathroom, shower, air conditioning, safe, a mini fridge, WIFI internet hotspot and satellite TV set with SKY. Furthermore the appartment is supplied with a well equipped kitchen with all the necessity for morning breakfast.
Le Guglie Bed and Breakfast is a cozy family atmosphere where you can meet people from all over the world and easily make friends in the morning during breakfast time in the kitchen which is in common!
My name is Fabio, I'm your host that run the B&B, I'm a friend and I can speak english as I used to live and have a job in London(UK) long ago! You can share your Venetian experience with me and ask me all the time for advice or indications!!!!
P.s. In the morning I like to bake sometimes nice cakes and custards! Italian hand made(by me)!!!!
Interaction with Guests
I live at the BnB so, I'm pretty much reliable during the morning from 8:00 untill 12:00 and I usually sleep here. During afternoons and evenings unless I'm waiting anybody to show up for the check in, I usually live my life and I'm not present in the building.
Fabio is a great host, he was very welcoming when we arrived. We love the location of his apartment, it's 10 mins walk from the bus station and also very easy to get to other tourist areas. Room was clean and has a big bed, but the shower is kinda small for a person with big shoulders. All in all it was a nice stay in Venice!
Schönes Zimmer, tolle Lage! Fabio ist ein sehr netter hilfsbereiter Vermieter. Wir waren sehr zufrieden und hatten ein paar wunderschöne Tage in Venedig. Vom Frühstück sollte man nicht zuviel erwarten. Aber bei der super Lage und dem gemütlichen Zimmer kommt es darauf nicht an. Zumal man überall genialen Kaffee und leckeres Backwerk bekommt.
My daughter and I have stayed at Fabio's B&B for 6 nights in the beginning of March. We both were very pleased with the Le Guglie Bed & Brakfast accomodation. Our two -levels room with the terrace was lovely. It was cozy, warm and clean.
Fabio is a great host. He is friendly and considerate.
When Fabio noticed what we didn't eat typical breakfast food he asked what we would like to get for breakfast. And we had got the fruits and still water next morning.
The location of the B&B is perfect. Is it little bit away from common tourist walks so there were many pretty good restaurants and coffee-shops with acceptable prices around the Le Guglie Bed & Brakfast.
Next time when I in Venice I stay at Fabio's.
Très bon accueil de Fabio. Situation idéale à 15 mn à pied de la gare routière et à 50 m d'une station de vaporetto. Chambre spacieuse, propre et calme. Petit déjeûner simple mais copieux.
Une très bonbe adresse !
My fiancé and I had a lovely time at Fabios place, very easy to find, 5star location and the room was great with supper king size bed, I highly recommend it, if we visit Venice again we will be staying at the same place :)
Fabio is a very attentive host. He was available for us when we needed him. The room was pleasant, tidy and warm ( in spite of a very cold weather). The immediate access to a vaporetto stop with several lines direct to Lido, Murano St Marc square and Rialto and the bus and train station was extremely convenient.
Only one suggestion : fresh fruits, fresh bread and pure fruit juice for breakfast would be nice.
Fabio was very accommodating and greeted me at the train station, taking my bags as we walked the short distance to his B&B. The room and private bath were up three flights of stairs so his help with my bags was appreciated. The room with two windows had a great view of a canal but was quiet at night. The bath was compact, very clean and well stocked with towels etc. the double bed was comfortable, ample closets, lights and bedding, good space for one person or two people in close quarters. The shower and toilet might be too tight for anyone of large size. I was glad to have the small refrigerator and water heater/tea in the room. I enjoyed the coffee for breakfast but passed on the wrapped pastries, cereal and yogurt, too much dinner. Everything was orderly, clean and as in the pictures. The location allowed me to walk to everything on my two day visit. Guglie water bus station just down the street was great for departure by air. I would gladly stay there again.

"Sono un ragazzo, mi piacciono le ragazze..." diceva Paul McCartney un paio di anni fa mentre era ospite al David Letterman Show quando gli chiesero di descriversi...Ma che dire, Sir Paul è un mito!!!
Parliamo di me, allora! Mi piace suonare la chitarra e cantare, ho avuto un gruppo musicale per un paio d'anni ma eravamo troppo all'avanguardia per essere capiti! Suono anncora ma adesso non sono più all'avanguardia ma più semplicemente un contemporaneo!
Ho vissuto per un anno a Londra in Inghilterra dove ho studiato inglese e lavorato per la premiata ditta Caffe Costa. Il mio lavoro? Beh, fare i caffè... Da questa esperienza mi è rimasta la passione per l'Inghilterra, le Public Houses, la musica Brit e la birra!
Ritornato a casa poi, per un paio d'anni ho fatto il Web Designer e Grafico pubblicitario, ma ora sono un ottima compagnia e un simpatico gestore di un piccolissimo B&B. Il B&B è piccolo ed accogiente con solamente 2 stanze ed è la sua forza: atmosfera intima, più contatto umano!
Ho la passione dello studio delle lingue straniere, al momento sto cercando di imparare il francese ed il tedesco...con scarsi risultati ma mi applico!
Il mio motto è intraducibile in inglese perchè si perde il gioco di parole, ma in italiano suona così:
"Un poeta ed un po' no"
