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.

So, got up this morning Friday the 17th, it was raining. Huh, why did we go on vacation? It's a lot like Vancouver island actually: wet, not too cold, we'll be just fine. After a nice continental breakfast at our hotel, off we went, with umbrella and camera in hand, to explore some more. Oh, just so you know, Lisa hates umbrellas. She let me know right from the beginning that if I'm borrowing an umbrella from the hotel the thing is my responsibility. Alright, I sort of have ...
Travel through this area, and through the rest of Italy, has been made interesting due to the fact that your average Italian driver appears to be insane . They don’t quite reach the dizzying heights of your Colombian driver, but texting whilst motorcycling does add another degree of difficulty.
Mercifully we are traveling of season. Camping grounds at the moment are nearly empty, and cheap in Italy compared to Switzerland ...
... and finally found a shop which did). It also seems most of the handbag shops may be owned by the one "chain" or “owner” – the shop assistants are Asian and the bags are REALLY cheap – even though there’s a label on them advising, “Made in Italy” and knock-off products here are illegal – just watch the African (?) Negros keeping an eye out for the Police as they are trying to sell the copies in the streets.
The weather has returned, glorious sunshine, in Italy I expect nothing less. Arrived in Venice and it did not disappoint. It is just magic wandering up and down the lanes past shops selling all sorts of wonders (no doubt catering to the extensive tourist population), but there are some absolute gems in amongst the $2 shop variety.
Watching how life is conducted with no wheel based transport (apart from handcarts) is ...
Soon after, we headed to an exhibition on Vivaldi at the Museo della Musica in a small church not far from the Accademia Bridge. The compositions of Vivaldi -- a son of Venice -- are well-known to Hannah who has played violin for almost a decade. Aside from the incredible display of ancient instruments and magnificent guitars, lyres, mandolins, cellos and violins, our favorite section explored how a violin is actually ...
