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.

Rather slow moving day and finally we were ready to venture out for some more adventure. We decided to go to the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit at the Scuola Grande di San Rocce. There was another exhibit of the same "Machines of Leonardo da Vinci at the San Barnabas church but we went to the one of the Scuola Grande. They had much of the same material except at the ...
... me all about it, it can be posted anywhere in the world, guaranteed, signed by the master, bla bla. I guess these guys work on commission, but it was a bit stressful. Sort of like person to person telemarketing. We politely said no thank you and agreed it was beautiful, as we went downstairs he said something short and sharp to his telemarketing colleague, I don't think it was very respectful towards us. Glad to go downstairs to the much more lively tourist section. 5 ...
... We buy a ferry pass for two days allows you on and off as many times as you like great way to see the city of Venice. You must understand the ferry system otherwise you end up doing laps of the city three times as we discovered. Was relaxing but you start to get hungry, and when i get hungry........!!!!! We find our way back to the little cafe. The owner claps yay the Aussies come back. He loads up our plates with a variety ...
... but the line was incredibly long and it was very hot outside. For dinner i went to this small itialian pizza place for delicious pizza. I had a much needed beer and now I am hanging out in my hostel listening to the live music going on in the building across from mine. My room has 6 beds in it, but I only have one roommate, which is nice for a change! Tomorrow I am off to Porto Venere, which is right on the coast. My train leaves early tomorrow so I am off to bed! Good ...
... but only a few people live there now. There is a small exclusive hotel where Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana have stayed.
Near our boat, some people were swimming and it looked so tempting to our hot and sticky selves. We thought about taking a water taxi out to the Lido to swim but by the time we got back we were so tired that we just wanted to rest in our room.
