I enjoyed the location, and the staff was very accommodating. The room was spotlessly clean and (with the exception of the night and morning noises from the adjacent room's toilet) it was very quiet and peaceful. The window has a wonderful view of the canal. I was warned that Giudecca (the island) was not a good place to stay because it takes so long to travel to Venice, but that's simply not true. I never had to wait for more than five minutes for a trip to Venice. I should also mention that the price of a room at the Hotel Giudecca was substantially lower than rooms on Venice. The island itself is quieter and calmer. The hotel's breakfast was very good and the service was excellent.
Wifi only works in the lobby. What traveler wants to be limited to that tiny area? Who wants to conduct private business like banking online while surrounded by strangers? It's an unsafe and inconvenient practice. And even there the reception for the wifi was spotty. I would suggest better wifi for the modern traveler. This might be a cost-prohibitive "fix" to make, but if-- like I do-- you have business to transact online while on vacation, you'll want better connectivity to the internet. My single room was organized so that the head of my bed was up against a wall with a door to the next room, and it was pretty clear that right on the other side was a bathroom as I could hear the occupant's "rituals." In spite of these issues, though, the hotel is an excellent value.
Wooden beams in the room made it very homely. Guidecca is easy to get to from the main island and away from the hustle and bustle. also there is a very nice restaurant on the way to the Palanca vaporetto stop. The staff are very nice there.
The Hotel was great! Nice design, welcoming personell, excellent brekfast!
Excellent location in a residential neighbourhood, very quiet, yet very close to the main islands of Venice - close to the vaporetto stop which will take you to San Marco Square in less than 10 minutes. Clean rooms of decent size, staff are very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is minimal
Position and staff
Would have liked free wifi in the rooms as well as lobby.
good price quality ratio, nice and quiet away from the crowd, yet still close to Venice itself. Good breakfast service, very friendly and helpful staff. Nice room with view on canal. Close to ferry to bring you to Venice
Shower was rather tiny. Ceiling of lobby was very low so when you're tall you cannot walk straight up.
feel at home
fair price and comfortable facilities
Dispite previous reviews, I emailed the Hotel and was given the easiest directions to follow, perhaps others should have tried this. Breakfast was good, always topped up, great mini bar at fanastic prices, room was fabulously clean and well maintained, staff were both helpful and informative,even to the point of booking restaurants (a must for the most popular), even on departure, due to an early start the night porter made tea and coffee before we left. You may read other reviews slating the TV channels, IE no english channels, but if you are intending staying in your room in Venice to watch the TV, then stay at home, because you are wasting your money. If you are concerned about the location, as I was, don't be, its only 4 stops from St Marcs, and 25 mins from Pizza de Roma and surrounded by 3 or 4 great value resturants. Highly recommended. Would I stay there again??? Most definitely!!!!!
Absolutely nothing to complain about, fabulous from start to finish.
The helpfulness of staff, buffet breakfast.
I didn't like the way their internet was set up.
When you stay at Hotel Giudecca Venezia in Venice, you'll be in the historical district, within a 15-minute walk of Grand Canal and Peggy Guggenheim Museum. Featured amenities include express check-in, express check-out, and a 24-hour front desk.
