Convenient, Affordable Hotel Near Train Station
Posted Jun 22, 2015
We were looking for a moderately priced hotel within walking distance of the train station, and settled on Hotel Alle Gugli. Location is excellent: less than 10 minute walk from train station and water taxis, lots of convenient shops, produce stands directly outside hotel. Our room was quiet and we did not hear any outside sounds. Very good WiFi. Outside shutters nicely block out the AM sun in you wish to sleep in. Be forewarned there is no elevator. We were on the top floor of a walk-up, but Luca very kindly carried my suitcase to the room. :-)
Room is clean, functional and pleasant. The hotel staff are super nice and did a great job to make our stay comfortable. One caveat: the shower stall is *extremely* cramped with very sensitive handles. It is very easy to accidentally turn the nozzle to the extreme hot or cold, so be careful! That said... 1) the water pressure is excellent and 2) there is plenty of hot water. Also, the tap water is very clean, so no need to purchase bottled water.
Finally, there is a very nice breakfast included in the stay, which consisted of: croissants, toast, cereal, quesadillas, variety of yogurt, and coffee/cappuccino/tea.
I was very pleased with this hotel and absolutely recommend it for anyone who is looking for a clean, safe, convenient and affordable place.
