Excellent place to stay! Lovely host, wonderful area just outside the touristy part of the city centre but not too far, very genuine and authentic Italian resturants right on your door step or fresh fruit and veg for breakfast. The host was excellent freind, y and left us to it to enjoy our holiday with no hassle and no problems whatsoever.

Very friendly host, awesome location, and great food around the property. The price of the stay met the quality of the room. Host gave us drinks and snacks upon our arrival which was very nice! the area itself is extremely relaxing and just minutes away from the water taxi.

This was our first time visiting Venice and we're so happy we stayed at Vaniglia Guest house. The location is amazing, we love the park, the quiet and relatively tourist devoid area. We felt at ease and welcome. Although it was hot and there were mozzies, we slept well, because other than some boat noise for a bit in the evening, it's very quiet. We kept the windows open during the day and closed them when we came back in the evening, that seemed to work quite well. We had our doubts about not having a private bathroom, but with two guestrooms and two bathrooms it really wasn't a problem. Only improvements I can think of would be fly screens in the windows to keep the mosquitos out and a better bed. Vincent bar around the corner is great for breakfast (they have delicious Ginseng coffee and rice pudding tarts). Vecia Gina around the other corner is great for dinner, they have delicious Polenta (and good pizza's of course). (After this we moved to a 4 start hotel near tourist hell which was a horrible experience and not worth the money... .)

Place is in a great neighborhood for a great price; a bit hard to find at first but definitely worth it. Water bus stop is a minute walk and can get basically anywhere from there. Great stay.

NOTE: we stayed at the Vaniglia's Biennale Apartment in Garibaldi St offered by Adriano as there was no availability at the Vaniglia B&B at the time of the enquiry. A wonderful, simple Studio apartment overlooking a Venetian canal in a serene and 'local' part of town yet only 15 minutes walk from St Marks and less than 10 minutes to Arsenale vaporetto stop where you can take the Blu line to the airport. Numerous restaurants (and cafes/bakeries) line Garibaldi street, and our host Adriano gave us a wonderful recommendations (don't miss Giorgione's on a Saturday night). The apartment is spacious enough, comfortable, serene and well kitted out - no surprises. There are quite a lot of stairs but how else to you get a great view down the canal in one direction and down the wide Garibaldi Street in the other?

Thanks a lot for your nice visit and stay. All the best for you and come back sometime, Adriano.

Adriano est quelqu'un de très discret et disponible, sa chambre d'hôtes d'une propreté irréprochable, est située à 2mn d'un arrêt de vaporetto et 20mn à pied de la place Saint Marc. Nous avons apprécié le calme du quartier et le parc qui le linge.

Molto soddisfatto delle due notti passate al Vaniglia Guest House. A soli 10-15 minuti a piedi dal centro, a Sant'Elena si può godere del verde fresco, silenzioso e rilassante. Appartamento al secondo piano, camera spaziosa e pulita. Adriano è un ospite molto gentile, cortese e disponibile. Ci tornerò sicuramente.

Ideale per chi vuole vivere la vera essenza di Venezia lontano dal caos turistico. Posto tranquillo e silenzioso a poca distanza dalla fermata del vaporetto (10 minuti per piazza San Marco) e agevole anche a piedi. Tipica casa veneziana (no ascensore) essenziale ma pulita. Proprietario super disponibile ma allo stesso tempo discreto. La libertà è totale. Nei dintorni bar nel giardino e diversi ristoranti di buon livello dove mangiare.

Ottima location, vicinissima ai Giardini della Biennale e assai vicina all'Arsenale. Gestore molto gentile e assai disponibile. Inoltre la zona di Sant'Elena è tra le più alte di Venezia: ho trovato il tragitto da casa all'Arsenale quasi sempre asciutto nonostante i terribili giorni di Acqua Alta, e i ristoranti/pizzerie in zona sono rimasti sempre aperti nonostante i problemi avuti nel resto di Venezia. Fermata di vaporetto e riva del mare a sì e no 1 minuto di distanza.

Stanza ampia e luminosa in una bellissima zona immersa nel verde, tranquilla e poco battuta dai turisti, a due passi dai Giardini della Biennale. Adriano è stato molto ospitale e disponibile e ci ha fatti sentire a casa. Location ideale per chi vuole visitare la Biennale, ma anche per chi vuole scoprire la Venezia più autentica.

Adriano è molto gentile e premuroso, attento alle necessità. La truttura è in una zona tranquilla, fuori dal caotico centro, ma allo stesso tempo, comoda per tutti gli spostamenti, in quanto vicinissima al vaporetto di Sant'Elena. Quando torneremo a Venezia, verremo di nuovo al Vaniglia, è certo.
