Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alle Guglie Venice
Nice location nice staff
Stayed here for 4 nights...excellent location and staff were very nice and helpful. Room was clean and excellent value for the money. If you want all the trappings of more luxurious hotels pay more money !! I can make do without TV remotes (especially when my Italian can appreciate the football channels but little else) and if you want a slap up breakfast stay at home !!
This hotel was in the thick of things without being noisy. Vaporetto just round the corner, excellent fruit stalls in the market outside, Internet Cafe 3 doors away and more restaurants and shops than you can shake a stick at !!
Enjoyed it very much - recommended - good value !!
Not sure about this one.
First the positive stuff -
It's in a good place near the top of Strada Nova,
It's close to what looks like the only bar open after 10PM,
There are some good restaurants nearby,
If you are on a budget the local 'Brek' food place is just over the Ponte Guglie (good food for the price),
There is an excellent coffee bar just over the bridge as well,
The revamped rooms look nice.
Now the negative stuff -
When we arrived the hotel thought we were staying for one night. We told them it was two. This seemed to confuse them and we were led to a room upstairs (up the stairs just before you go in reception). This room was RUBBISH. It was grim (lit by one 40 watt bulb I think) and dirty. We complained and were put in the nice room at the front. The decor was nice and it was clean. No proper shower - just a hand held thing and there was a tiny hole in the sink! Expect to be woken up by the market. For the next night we had to move to a room at the back - which was much the same but smaller. Couldn't find a remote for the tv in any of the rooms we were put in! Breakfast was 'adequate' at best. If I went back I'd try somewhere else.
We recently stayed at this hotel in late June 2004. First glance, the hotel seemed a bit below average, our room was dark (with dark blue wallpaper and decoration) and gloomy. The beds (2 singles pushed together to make a double) were sagging and lumpy. But the view of the courtyard from the 2 windows were charming! We immediately became friends with the house cat who was sunning beneath our window and who seemed very attached to our room! The staff at the hotel was nice and friendly. Breakfast for 2 was very minimal: a small bag of pre-made toast, some rolls, 2 pieces of butter, 3 little jams, and coffee or tea. The best thing we like about this hotel was the location! Right outside the hotel was the market, fun & bustling all day long! Shops and restaurants were also just steps away from the hotel. Two vaporetto stops sandwiched the hotel nicely - the Guglie stop and the San Marcuolo stop - so it was very convenient to get around Venice from there! Great location aside, our bathroom smelled like "sewage" the entire time we were there! Most unsettling! Well, at least the non-luxurious aspect of the room kept us outside all day long! A good thing when you travel to new places!
We stayed for my birthday 19th March. We found the hotel easily and it was very central. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a little small but very clean. The resident cat liked to use our room as a throughfare to his favourite sun bathing place on the roof outside, although this was never a problem - the staff were more upset about this than we were.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

... tourists and I can see why. There are way too many tourist shops selling junk. It takes away from the beauty of the buildings and the charm of the old city. Everyone is out to make money. The laugh was the guys outside the Gucci, and Prada etc shops, selling knockoff bags, labeled from those shops.
ever watched Austin powers in Italian? Just like the movie, the hangover last night, I just cannot get into it.
... not (and plentiful), the shop-windows are an entertainment in themselves and then there are still the buildings and the waterways! And of course this city has so many links with literature, Shakespeare being in that category (think "The Merchant of…). No references to Shylock anywhere though.
We spent a long day there, walked WELL in excess of the recommended 10, 000 steps a day from Curves Gym (where I attend back home), ...
... found to be fascinating. Reconnecting with girls who had shopped in the San Marco Square, the group proceeded to the Rialto Bridge where Louis hoped to purchase a felt hat from a merchant he had bought a hat from a number of years ago. Sadly, the shop no longer existed. Along the way, Louis made an interesting discovery about the early Venetian water system… more details later.

Today was a bit of a cruisy day or rather was meant to be. We left the Novatel Firenze where we had a great stay, the staff were really helpful and Firenze is just beautiful. We headed to the train station and next to us while reading the departures board we could hear a kiwi accent and it turned out the couple next to us were travelling to Venice also on the same train and were from Christchurch. So we spent the time waiting for the train having a lovely ...
... eventually reached Florence. Once again we would be in a house tent, in a campground full of olive trees. You can’t get more Italian than that. We were situated on the south side of the river, a few minutes walk away from the Piazzale Michelangelo. The first thing we noticed upon arrival was that it was stupendously hot, around 44 degrees Celsius. Unfortunately, this campground lacked a pool, so it looked like it was going to be a hot few days.
The heat between 10am and ...
