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.

... for the evening. So out came the map and Dan got us back on track, heading back to our apartment. We stumbled upon a gelato bar and the call was made to use some of their 'gelato money' (thanks Roy, Jo & boys) Good call that was - yum! We found our way back to the apartment for some journal writing and quiet time. The teenagers call it Wifi time. We headed back out around 7pm for dinner. We took a different route ...
... in a queue until served by a very laconic rail person. I suppose he's seen it all before. Anyway he cast a dismissive glance at our tickets and said "you can forget about those". We had to repurchase at more than twice the original rate. THEN we had to sort out an extra night at the wedding venue. THEN contact Walter who is organising our driver and let him know the change too. Wedding venue all good. I phoned the groom to let him know and he laughed his head off. He will ...
The worst of times
The place we went for lunch (Bar Novo) - they tried to pour us wine we didn't order, they gave us the wrong pizza (but said it was what we'd ordered), they were cleaning the table while I was still finishing my drink, and we think they charged us both a cover charge and a service charge, but they took the bill away nearly as fast as ...
... of this world! The ship is incredible, I can't believe I'm actually sat in Venice typing this....its just surreal! It's a six star cruise and now I see why, from the spa and the gym area right through to the restaurants, champagne lounges it's just unbelievable that these things and so much more are on board a ship! Tomorrow we sail for Croatia! Love Aj ...
... stopping for a coffee (albeit expensive!) along the way. I read somewhere that Venice is one of the most expensive cities in Italy.
And then even though Lonely Planet and Trip Adviser warned against it, we did the gondola experience! I just felt it was one of those 'must-do's' on our first trip to Venice. It was lovely, expensive, but lovely and I have a feeling I enjoyed it a lot more than Tony. We ...
