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.

... only a few hours before the train and time to reflect on yet another eventful trip. It’s strange that whilst I am the first to defend MSC should anyone ‘slag’ then off, we do find that we often criticise their customer service and attitude at times whilst we’re on board. However, like all cruise lines, I’m not saying MSC are perfect…far from it. I have always maintained that MSC may not win awards in any individual categories but as ...
... heavens opened and dumped rain of an intensity equal to that usually only seen in tropical climates. We ducked & weaved through the alleys trying to stay under the cover of awnings until we found somewhere to stop for lunch. By the time we finished the rain had eased off, so we set off in exploration of greater Venice. After several hours, a few backtracks and many kilometres, we finally found our way back to the hotel. The clouds ...
... attention to the Venice scenes (will probably research them beforehand).
After today, I have decided Italy is an enigmatic land - Rome and Venice are so different, they are like two separate countries. Rome we could actually not wait to get out of after seeing the sites, but Venice!…we wanted to linger and linger.
Hope these photos will give you at least a fraction of the enjoyment the city afforded us…
Again - what a gorgeous day!
Started the morning exactly the way we did yesterday with beautiful Italian pastries, before we set off for another wander.
We walked past Scula Grande di San Marco - which we had done the night we flew in, but I wanted to see it in the daytime as Will has a picture of it. Just like all of the other buildings that we saw in Venice, the architecture was beautiful - and it has given me a real thirst to explore ancient countries such ...
... able to successfully lead the way back!
By this time, it was early evening and the girls needed to eat. We stopped at this one really cute restaurant that was right on the water, very beautiful. The downside was the service was absolute **** and our waiter was incredibly rude. Mama couldn't take it after she attempted to order and he rolled his eyes at her and kept walking, so Mama got up and we all left. Mama was not happy and we did not want to end our evening in Venice ...
