Hilton Molino Stucky Venice Hotel
Travel Blogs from Venice
This is the first spot I plan to go in Italy. In Venice the main attraction for tourists are the Gondala rides through the canals throughout the city. So being the stereotypical tourist, that's what I plan to do. This stop will allow me to appreciate some of the history of Italy and it's sinking city.
This morning, we enjoyed our first Hilton breakfast. They have a breakfast dining room, then a whole room stacked full of food. We've never seen such an offering for breakfast – cereal, toast, bread rolls, ham, cheese, salad!, cakes, bacon, eggs, sausages, baked beans, tomatoes, biscuits, yoghurts, fresh fruit, a gluten- …
Florence to Verona and Venice
Having contributed to the local economy of San Gimagnano yesterday, we had a small bowl of pasta and only one glass of house wine for dinner last night – ha ha!! We were pleased to get back to the hotel and have an early night for a change.
This morning, we awoke to a dark and rainy …
Today we awoke at 7:00am to pack our bags and have some brekky so we could head off to Venice.
On the way to Venice we stopped at Verona which has some relevance to Romeo and Juliet but I had absolutely no interest in the relevance of this. We went for a bit of a walk around Verona and we approached the arch-way near Juliet's balcony. I...
Greetings from Italy! Venice was simply amazing! It looks just as it does in the pictures. Our view from the grand canal was spectacular gazing out at the Accademia Bridge and a beautiful palace directly across from our hotel. We visited many museums and churches on the way. The Guggenheim was definitely a highlight. One morning we awoke early a...Venice, Veneto, Italy ldybgrl

This hotel is not on the 'mainland' of Venice, but is located on Giudecca in a renovated grainery building. The facility was well appointed with Murano Glass throughout. The food was very good and the service impeccable!
There is a shuttle the hotel provides to two locations on to Venice. One is to the area of Piazza San Marco - within walking distance.
I would highly recommend this facility, but be aware that this is a 5 star hotel and if you are not using Hilton Honor Points, it can be very pricey!

Beautiful Hotel, short boat ride away from the main attractions. Modern hotel with a traditional twist. Lovely small rooftop pool hard to find a hotel with a pool in Venice! We were upgraded to an Executive room, great view of the Jetty makes Venice feel magical. Executive room was nice for a snack. Loved the roof terrace bar for cocktails before dinner great views. Only downfall was the spa on a rainy day, i thought it would be bigger.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Molino Stucky Venice Hotel
Brand new hotel with 380 rooms and only five not functioning when we were there last weekend. Sure we had the cheapest room with a view of a crumbling ruin (investment opportunity - sorry) but isn't that exactly why one goes to Venice? The service is friendly, the Skyline bar on the rooftop is brilliant , the views terrific and the Irish barman made us very welcome. It's simply the best place for a drink day or night and the prices are reasonable (8 euros for a glass of very smooth Argentine Malbec). Two options for dining, waterfront (expensive but very comprehensive) and the Molino restaurant, which Ok you pay 24 euros for a hamburger and fries but hey, it's a very good hamburger and fries and if you eat anywhere else in the city you will be looking at close to 100 euros for a dinner for two with wine and nothing special at that. So the Hilton is mid-price, comfortable, the restaurant manager Pieter efficient. The hotel must have exhausted the entire years quota of marble in Italy on the eight floors (OK 7 but Skyline and Pool are 8) This is a fantastic achievement by Hilton International, to rescue the old Flour mill on Guidecca Island was a very serious 250 million euro investment and Venice has a stunning new landmark hotel that I will certainly come back to.
We stayed at the Molino Stucky in the beginning of June. The hotel was beautiful. For the price ($250/ night)- you couldn't beat this place.
The room was very nice and the service was great. The hotel even brought up complimentary plums and bellinis to thank us for staying.
The pool and rooftop view was amazing.
The only downside to the Molino is its location- but it was nice to be able to get away a bit from the mainisland in Venice. The hotel shuttle was nice and very prompt.
If you do stay at the Hilton and decide to take the vaporetto there- just make sure you get off at the right stop. Do not get off at the Sacca Fiscola stop. Get off at the Palanca stop
A true 5 star hotel
Note that the hotel is not on the island of Venice but on the island of Giudecca. The Hilton does provide a free shuttle to Venice so it really in not the problem that is may seem.
Hotel is brand new, opened June 2007. This is a true 5 star hotel, beautiful rooms and lobby. Fantastic view from the pool on the top floor.
My famiy and I just returned from a 3 night stay in this "soon to be" award winning Hilton Hotel.....Hilton Molino Stuckey Hotel. The hotel is one of the tallest buildings in Venice, allowing for incredible views from the roof top infinity pool (7 stories over the city). Keep in mind, very few Venice hotels have pools due to space.....so if you want a facility that allows you to return from a long day of walking the tiny streets of Venice and cool off in an exquisite pool....this is the place.....especially if you have children. The hotel is like no other.....being a converted flour mill from the 1800's and having just opened June 1, 2007. The restoration was done keeping most of the original open beams and supporting walls, giving you the feeling of staying in an old building, but with the most modern of amenities, including large armoires, gorgeous woodwork and flat screen TV's in every room. The hotel offers a FREE boat shuttle service from the front door.....right to San Marcos (St. Mark's Square) every 30 minutes....making it easy to return to the hotel when needed. A full staff of concierge personel are on hand to answer your every question, even arrange a private water taxi if needed. When arriving from the airport to the Piazzale Roma (Vaporetto / Bus station).....take the Vaporetto #82 (water bus) to the 2nd Vaporetto stop for La Guidecca called PALANCA then walk along the water front with your luggage to the Hilton (Green roof with spire). Food at the Hilton is pricey, but a short boat ride away on the free shuttle brings you to downtown Venice....where you can eat at many small cafe's for about 1/3 the cost and enjoy the scenery. The hotel has a waterfront cafe and a romantic roof top bar where you can sit out in the evening and enjoy the scenery. If you are crusing....this is one of the closest hotels to the cruise ship pier....in fact all cruise ships sail right by the front door of the hotel.
This is a physically beautiful property billed by Hilton as a five-star hotel. Not. From check-in to check-out the staff (except for the water shuttle driver) was uniformly untrained and made what should have been a great experience a frustrating one.
We are just back from a nice stay at the Hilton; overall our experience has been very positive. After realizing that our "standard Deluxe" room is actually facing a wall (dark with no view at all) we went back to the front desk and complained complain. A charming check-in lady (Rita) was very accommodating; she picked up 3 keys and came with us on a tour to find a room we like.....which we eventually did.
Das Hotel ist spektakulär, ein fantastisches Gebäude mit atemberaubendem Ausblick auf Venedig von der Bar und dem Poolbereich auf der Dachterrasse. Das Hotel war sehr ruhig während unseres Aufenthaltes, aber ich empfehle, den Liegestuhl beim Pool vorab zu reservieren, um eine Enttäuschuing zu vermeiden, da es nur eine limitierte Anzahl gibt. Wie man es bei einem neuen Hotel erwartet, haben sie "Waschstumsschmerzen": wir hatten keine Kaffee/Teemaschine im Zimmer, keine Bademäntel, der Tresor funktionierte nicht und wir hatten am Anfang Probleme mit der Dusche usw.usw.
The hotel itself is spectacular, fantastic building with breathtaking views over Venice from the roof top bar and pool areas. The hotel was fairly quiet during our stay but I advise booking your sun lounger by the pool to avoid disappointment as there are limited numbers available. As you would expect with a new hotel they are experiencing teething problems, we had no tea/coffee making facilities in our room, no bathrobes, the safe didnt work, initial problems with the shower etc etc
Wir haben das Wochenende 15-18.6 im Hilton Venedig verbracht. Da wir uns aufgrund der noch fehlenden Bewertungen und der noch aufzubauenden Homepage noch keine Eindrücke holen konnten waren wir sehr gespannt wie es ist.
Beauty and disaster
We already knew that hotel is recently opened and we expected some problems.
Generaly hotel looks nice and have wonderful rooftop bar and pool. Because of quite remote location shuttle service is convieniente and noise is limited. Buffet breakfast was plentiful as well with wide offer of fresh fruit. But here good things stop.
Rooms did lack simple things like glases or sink towels. One of our group had first problem with leaking water, then all night drilling and was refused acceptable room - had to change to another hotel.
Internet charge is exorbitant: 25 euros per 24 h.
Last surprise was on Sunday when we left for airport - it was close to impossible to order taxi, some people waited 1,5 h. We had to overpay 3 times to get in time!
