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.

... going to "sue" the rail line or make a stink to get some money back, my response "no, they already apologized, and once we hit the alps it should be much colder". Shortly thereafter the train stops in the middle of nowhere, suddenly 3 train people come running to their cabin with looks of concern. Looking bewildered the conductor asks them why they pulled the emergency brake? So a very hot train got even hotter since we stopped again and had no air flowing. ...

The people are employed in hydro electricity production, road infrastructure, mining and smaller industries, including tourism. Kotor is one of those absolutely delightful places which you could spend the whole day exploring. But on our day there it began raining and by mid-morning we abandoned the little lanes and headed to the new part of Kotor, to a shopping mall for shelter. Tip ...
... had a coffee machine that made everything from hot water to cappuccino. After breakfast, I ran back to the room and got us checked in to our flights on the iPad, then used the hotel computer to print off the boarding pass which I had emailed to myself.
The hotel offers a free water taxi to one of the glass factories on the island of Murano. We checked with the front desk after breakfast at 9:45am and they had a taxi scheduled to depart at ...
... architecture and terraces along this wide, main route are gorgeous and at night they're accentuated with the soft glow of the canal equivalent of streetlights. The facades of museums and galleries along this canal are especially beautiful, but people reside here too and with windows wide open and lights on inside, we had a sneak peek into Venetian Grand Canal living. It was so romantic we got off at the last stop and waited for the next water bus going back in the ...
