Gorizia a la Valigia
Travel Blogs from Venice
My last full day in Venice. This has been the fastest week yet (except for the sleepless nights at the beginning—they were kind of long). Today I started out walking towards the train station, just to be in an area that I haven't yet spent much time. There was actually some blue sky peeking through the clouds! I crossed over the Grand Canal—Ponte degli Scalzi—and then back again—Ponte di Calatrava. I went to ...
Up early to travel to Venice. Entertaining breakfast with the owners son very dry sense of humour. We bought supplies for the train trip and waited for the mini bus. The owner of the hotel was happy to be a proxy " George Clooney" for a photo moment lol. So Chrissy got her photo moment haha Bus to train 1 1/2 hours train to Venice 2 1/2 hours. The trains are so smooth it's s great way to travel. Chrissy has a quick nap, so I stole ...
... nice drop. This was a nice way to have a break from travelling as they supplied a very generous tasting along with an assortment of antipasti, cheese and bread after a detailed tour of their facilities.
We pushed on to Verona where we had a couple of hours to see the sights and have some lunch.
First stop was Juliet's balcony. This middle ages balcony in a back alley has somehow become linked with Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. No-one really ...
... to head up the Campanile. The line was almost non-existent and we were up in around 20 minutes. This is one view that luckily came with an elevator. The views from the top were absolutely stunning. From that vantage point you can really see how tight and small the little alleys are. You can't even really make out any of the canals. We only had a 10 min wait for the 2 pm bell chiming so we decided to wait it out...the bells were so loud and definitely went off more than ...
... the Grand canal and some
interesting houses. The tour ended on the grand canal near the
bridge. It was still early in the day and the tourists were just
coming out. A group of us started looking around the markets, then
had a look at some mask shops, having a general wander around, then
we went to a restaurant and had a quick lunch of pasta, it was good
but the restaurant seamed to cater for tourists.
After lunch we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Gorizia a la Valigia Venice
good central location,excellent room,very disabled friendly would recommend highly
Well centrally located hotel
I have just returned from staying at the Gorizia Hotel. I found it to be the best centrally located hotel. It was very clean, no smells and made the holiday a real pleasure. The breakfast was modest but plenty. Most of the hotel staff were very pleasant. The only gripe I would have and it's not that important I thought the reception staff could be a lot more pleasant, but this was not a problem. I would not hesitate in recommending it to my friends or using it again myself. Very good value for the money my friend and I paid
We stayed for 4 nights in a superior double room. The room was ok - we thought it was quite small bearing in mind it was meant to be a superior room. The air conditioning didn't work in our part of the building until the last night. Most of the staff didn't really care if we were there or not and we didn't find them very helpful. I don't expect much from breakfast but I really wasn't that impressed with it - we only had it on one morning.
It is a great location but I would stay else where in future.
we stayed for 2 nights august 2003 in a very clean and comfortable triple room with essential air con as it was hot. beutifull breakfast room with an ample continental fair. excellent peacefull location just minuets from both st marks square ans rialto bridge. enjoyed all the famous landmarks and had some great food in some of the many restaurants (examine the menues before hand for prices). i would certainly use this hotel again
Gorizia a la valigia
Great location - just a couple of minutes walk from both rialto and st mark's square in a fairly quiet street but busy area of venice. Within easy reach of the boat stop at st mark's for the airport journey and near to loads of good, affordable restuarants and cafes. Room was clean and prettily decorated and the staff were polite helpful. Continental breakfast was good.
Great Location, Good Hotel
Stayed at this hotel with my mother and sister from 3-6 January 2004.
We had a nice triple room (No 35) with bathroom which was always cleaned well each day and we found it comfortable. The location is excellent it was great to pop in and out of the hotel for coffee breaks, drop off gifts etc as it is just between St Marks and the Rialto Bridge.
The continental breakfast was nothing fantastic (but they never are), however the breakfast room itself was clean and well presented.
Slight language barrier - we asked for an extra toilet room and were given a towel - we had a real laugh.
For location and price highly recommended!
No glowing review from me.
No glowing review from me. Hotel rooms poor and smelt of raw sewage but were clean. Staff not helpful. Was clean and well located.
Spent 3 nights @ the Gorizia, between Christmas & new year, what a great Hotel, just a 3 min; walk up a picturesque ally, off ST; Marks square.We bought 3 day pass for vaporatti..water bus, unlimited travel, great value, explore all the islands, each has their own characture.Eating places, do look for Tourist Menu good VFM, but do ask for option when inside , as the waiters dont offer this when your at table.When you arrive @ the Bus Station Venice, do ask for water bus, otherwise you will be directed to water taxi, which is 10 euro to San Marco[ centre near ST; Marks]the water bus is 3 euros & nearer the station!
Easy to find
Very comfortable, clean and convenient for all the sights. Staff are very helpful. I would recommend this hotel.
