Hilton Molino Stucky Venice


I am interested in visiting Venice, Italy this April 2008 and enjoy reading your guides and website. I find it unusual that neither your guides or website mention the above listed hotel in Venice. Can you please send me any information or reviews you have on this property that is owned or managed by Hilton? Thank you very much.

Hi Glenn - Why not try TripAdvisor for reviews?


No personal experience, but I think many people might prefer not to be based on Giudecca Island for visiting Venice.

I think another reason is that it only opened last year.

I would also not want to be based out there. The hotel does have at least 2 shuttle boats which go backwards & forwards to the St Mark's Square area & they seem reasonably frequent (I've seen them from the hotel where I stay and which they go past). But what if you are exploring an area of Venice nowhere near SMS ? You'd always have to go back to SMS first to get the shuttle, or make your own way back to the hotel. And I'd rather be right *in* Venice with interesting areas to wander round at night, plenty of bars & restaurants, etc. The Molino Stucky is an a partly residential, partly industrial area with redevelopment going on and not a lot else round there of interest to a visitor.

I believe I've also read that some rooms have no windows, & certainly from the outside there seem to be large parts of the building with no windows.

A five star hotel with no windows ? That seems weird to me...

I just spent six night at La Calcina, on the south side of Dorsoduro, and felt THAT was a bit far from where I wanted to be (admittedly I was limping at the time). No way I'd plan to stay on Guidecca. You can see the churches and go up the campanile at S. Giorgio in an afternoon.
