About This Listing
Recently restored, the Bed&Breakfast Al Canal is an oasis of tranquillity and peace in the heart of Venice, the Giudecca island, out of the crowded and noisy touristic itineraries.
In 15 minutes you can reach St. Mark square, train station, piazzale roma or tronchetto parking car station by waterbus that runs every 10 minutes.
The B&B is named "al Canal" since it faces a large canal and is located on the ground floor of a typical Venetian 17th century building.
2 double-bedded rooms (extra bed on request), fully furnished with linen and towels, can accomodate single guest or families (cribs and extra-bed available).
The spacious bathroom with shower is shared by the guests.
A Venetian courtyard welcomes the guests with its beautiful flowers: an ideal place for relaxing with a drink after a day of sightseeing.
Continental breakfast is included and during the warm season it can be served in the garden.
The B&B al Canal is an ideal place where to spend a vacation in a quiet and economic way, here you get to know a popular and genuine Venice.

Francesca was a wonderful host. First, her directions are extremely clear for getting to her place and anywhere else in Venice. She gives great advice for traveling the city. The home is quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the city center but can be reached in only 10 minutes! She is extremely accommodating and made our stay in Venice terrific! 100% recommend!
Francesca is the quintessential host and my room on the canal was the perfect way to experience Venice. Her instructions to find the house, navigate the vaporetto, and even make my way to the airport were the best I've ever had in Venice and her hosting was superior to any airbnb host I've had. I'll return again and again.
Francesca was absolutely lovely. She was always attentive and smiling and helped us with getting around and gave us very detailed instructions for getting to the apartment. She was also very nice to allow us to check in early with a our multiple bags and print our train tickets for our trip to Cinque Terre. We had a lovely breakfast in the garden every morning with great expresso and it was more than enough to fuel us for a big day of sightseeing. The room was turned down after our first night as well.
At first I was hesitant about the area as it was not on the main Island. However, I highly recommend that you wake up early one day and walk around the island (the side that you are staying on). Early in the morning it is really lovely and I got to appreciate the island and take some fantastic pictures. Stores are getting their deliveries by boat, old men are fishing, dogs are being walked by locals, bakers are taking their morning expresso break, giant cruise ships are silently making their way through the harbour. It is kept really clean by the cleaners who come out every morning. There are beautiful streets and bridges and rose coloured lights lighting up the promenade at night. You can see over ot the main Island and all the glittering lights as well. Its too bad Airbnb dont allow you to post photos as well. I will be sending my snaps to Francesca to post on her profile if she sees fit.
The apartment itself is right behind the Hilton and the canal view room was truely magnificent. The vapporetti stop is about a 4 minute brisk walk (this is with luggage), I had to time it to be sure that when we left for an early connection, we had enought time to make the water bus. Just be mindful of mosquitoes if you leave your window open at night, thats a given regardless of where you are in the world.
Upon our arrival Francesca, was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. She also provided us with a bottle of cold water to beat the heat. She also provided us with ideas to see the various sights around the city and different restaurants to eat since we are vegetarians. She also provided us with the boat routes to see the sights we had intended to.
She also served us our breakfast with a big smile and was always prompt. The perfect breakfast with the most delicious jams and extremely delicious croissants.
She was always there when we needed her and provided us with help whenever we asked her.
The best thing about the listing was the well kept garden and the room with the canal view. Her house was very thoughtfully kept and decorated with pictures of her family. This showed us how much family means to her and how well knit her family is.
Francesca was the best host we have had and we would give her 7 stars if there was an option. We would definitely come over and stay at her house again.
Dear Janani, I want to thank you for this nice feed back!
You and Ganesh are wonderful guests as well :) Come back whenever you want, here you will be always welcome! All the best, Francesca
Très bon accueil. lieu idéal . Voyage de noce réussi. Lieu superbe.
Merci à francesca qui nous a tresbien accueilli et très bien renseigné sur les visites incontournables. Très belle chambre sur une île à 10 min en vaporetto pour rejoindre place saint Marc. Ce qui permet d'être au calme. Nous avons très bien dormi dans une très belle chambre avec vue sur canal. Magique! Des vacances superbes avec un petit déjeuner en terrase dans une cour très jolie...Je recommande sans hésiter.
Thank you Sthéphanie for the nice feed back!!!
Hope to see you again, here you will be always welcome... :)
Francesca was a great host and her place is very nice. It is clean, comfortable, and close to the water taxi line. It has everything you need in one convenient location. The garden area was particularly nice -- we had breakfast there every morning. Francesca was very helpful and answered all of our questions about getting around Venice. She was also very kind and notified us when our bags arrived at the Marco Polo airport, the airline had lost our bags and we were without for the first 2 days of our trip. We would stay there again.
