Lovely comfortable hotel on quiet Guidecca.

Posted 11-Apr-2017
Pros: Everything.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Perfect location. A delight to walk round the island. Not at all crowded. Beautiful views. A few very good restaurants. We love it.
What can I say about this hotel. It is perfect for a romantic holiday. Ideally located on the quiet island of Guidecca. Only a small vaporetti ride from the main part of Venice and Santa Giorgio Maggiore with views to die for over the lagoon. Spacious well kept clean rooms. Very friendly staff who are extremely helpful. Nice quiet breakfast room with plenty of breakfast. This is the second time we have stayed here and couldn't be better. There are no bad things about this hotel. Reasonable price and very nice. We were reluctant to leave and would go back again tomorrow. Can't praise it enough.

No wifi

Posted 03-Apr-2017
Pros: The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was good
Cons: The hotel staff was rude and the internet was virtually nonexistent
Location: The ferry service is very convenient. If you need wifi, the hostel down the street has it for free in the lobby.
In 2017 it's nearly impossible to take a trip expecting the promised wifi at the hotel only to show up and not have it. There is no internet in the rooms. We were told there would be wifi in the public areas. There was not. There was a very weak signal shared by anyone huddling in the small lobby, but it was barely sufficient. This place is overpriced for no internet.

Be part of the community

Posted 03-Apr-2017
Outside the central part of Venice, and need to take a boat to get there, but part of a friendly community. In the evenings, local families come out to walk around and kids playing. Very quiet all night and great views of the canal it sits on from the rooms. Great filling breakfast.

Nice Hotel in a convenient location

Posted 31-Mar-2017
A very clean and pleasant Hotel with very friendly staff. The room was clean and comfortable. However the shower cubical was on the small size. Frequently when turning around I caught the tap which resulted in cold or very hot water being sprayed out. Care is needed when using the shower. We had originally passed up on the breakfast, planning to find somewhere outside to breakfast. This proved difficult at a good price. So after the second day we had breakfast at the hotel. It was veery good and well worth the money. I would recommend having breakfast at the hotel. The Wifi was horrendously slow and only available in the reception. I gave up using it after the first day and relighed on my phones 3G connection. The hotel is in a good location less than 4 mins walk to the waterbus stop and only two stops to St Marco.

Beautiful hotel

Posted 28-Feb-2017
Great staff / location , breakfast was amazing! One thing I'd say is they advertise the superior room with a balcony but it turns out that room is a timeshare that isint always available! But great hotel!

Nice hotel, bad location

Posted 08-Jan-2017
Pros: Very clean and the staff is great. If it were not for the staff we would have left the first day.
Cons: Wi-Fi
Location: The location is in Giudecca, there are a couple of restaurants there, not much to do. You need to get on the vaporeto to go to the St. Marks area.
This hotel is not the same one as in is the photo shown on Expedia. It is at the end of an alley in Giudecca, which is not in Venice. Our room was nice and clean but it was basically a basement with two small windows facing the alley and the only view was people's feet as they walked by. The receptionist (Eleonora) was great and so were all the staff members but the hotel was not as described. Breakfast was ok. You need to take the vaporrato (water bus) to get to Venice and when you consider the cost of the vaporatto it might be more economical to stay in the mainland. Wi-Fi does not work in the rooms, only in the lobby and very slow and sometimes nonexistent.

Dear Mrs Teresita, thank you for your kind review and for all the compliments. Only we have to specify that Giudecca IS Venice and here you can feel the real spirit of the city. Venice is a city with more than 10 islands , this is the city!!. Maybe next time , before to choose an Hotel you have to verify where is located . Best regards.

Guidecca Hotel -great location

Posted 06-Dec-2016
I wouldn't stay again as the bed was too hard. The room was smaller than I expected. The shower was great. The hotel was spotless.

Venice Weekend

Posted 01-Nov-2016
Pros: The staff were very helpful. Connections for boats around the wider area were excellent.
Cons: Wifi only in the lobby isn't very convenient. Isn't the easiest place to find initially, especially at night.
Location: On the island opposite Grand Canal so a lovely boat over in the morning with great views. Several restaurants locally and a great walkway.

Peace and tranquillity in bustling Venice

Posted 30-Oct-2016 on Hotels
Initially we had doubts about staying on Guidecca which is not one of the main islands of Venice but it turned out to be an inspired choice. The hotel is a short walk from the Vaporetto stop and just 20 yards or so from the waterfront. Getting too and from the main islands is simplicity itself yet you are on island that has the peace and tranquillity that the main islands do not. The hotel is surrounded by canals and we had windows on both sides with a view of the water from both. But the main selling point for us was the staff who are superb, friendly, helpful and attentive. Probably the best I have met in recent years, they were even tolerant of my dreadful Italian! The rooms are significantly larger than most you will find in Venice, exceptionally clean with plenty of character. Breakfasts were also good and there are plenty of good value restaurants nearby. If I am lucky enough to return to Venice again this is where I will stay.
