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.

... through the canals, shouting in Venetian to alert the other boats we were rounding the corners, and out onto the lagoon. The interesting thing about the Venetian waterways is unless the area is dredged, like the Grand Canal is for larger crafts to pass through, you are never more then waist deep even when you are between islands. You can feel as though you are out in the middle of the ocean but you could walk back to ...
... the world, which has now closed down. Was kinda interesting to learn about how it was discovered and how it was mined. Glad that job no longer exists. This town is also known for lace.
Did a tour of the mine, a little ho hum, seen one mine, seen them all.
Arrived at Venice bus station at 6 pm and caught a water taxi to the hotel. Wandered off to find the hotel that I am staying in for my 3rd night here so I don't get ...

The blown glass wine glasses, light shades and jewellery are some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. (And no, I didn't add to my already 150 wine glass collection). In Venice all the Murano glass products are sold next to the Chinese made stuff. As it looks similar, the only way you can be sure is ...
... Graeme's shorts were not that much longer than mine and lots of other ladies were having to do the same - seriously who wears sleeves and pants in 35 degree temperatures!! I may need to get some scarves before we go to Rome though... stupid theives stole mine grrr!!) The basicila was stunning, very different from other churches we have visited - not as many frescoes on the roof of cherubs and angels, a lot more gold with paintings of Jesus and Mary and the ...
... the air every twenty metres or so as besuited bands played pianos, violins and winds, to catch the attention of passers by and draw them into restaurants and the like. We walked on around San Marco Square admiring the tiny shops, found a Frey Willie store and couldn't resists a purchase and a lesson in how to wear a scarf. Bought myself a new panama hat to replace the dreadful cap I had been ...
