Palazo La Scala, cute hotel half way between Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge. Four stories, twelve rooms and a big blond Italian lady who cooks us breakfast every morning. We have a room on the top floor with old wooden beams, a wee bit of a view of St. Mark's Bell Tower and a couple friendly pigeons for neighbors. Cooo. So after a week in a …
... was quite stunning and the canals are quite calm for the amount of water traffic. We went to dinner in a little osteria near the hotel. We sat staring at most of the locals.. The amount of food they consume is something else. We ordered a pizza to share while everyone around us was having 12 slices all to themselves.. Plus salad! The local vino wasn't too bad either! I crashed out about ...

Esimene juudi geto. Sõna pärineb itaaliakeelsest sõnast „ghettare" – valama ja tuleb sellest, et saarel, kuhu juudid 1516 asustati, oli valukoda. Saarel seepärast, et tulekahju korral ei leviks tuli naabermajadele. Eraldi asustati juudid aga põhjusel, et pea kõik linna elanikud olid 14. sajandil mingiks hetkeks liigkasuvõtjatega hädas ja korraks aeti juudid üldse linnast minema. Kui neil lubati tagasi tulla, ...
... but had a different feel than Florence. Venice had a much more local feel (not as big of a city feel). We also went to the opera. No, we did not understand anything, but we did our homework and researched the plot before we went. This opera was conducted in a palace (small). We moved to a new room for each act. There were only about 50 people in the audience; that's all there was room for. Leaving tomorrow for Austria.
... out in recognition of a plaza that he couldn’t possibly have been in before (never having been to Venice before). "I know this place! There’s… there’s a doorway into the Basilica just around that corner, and a back gate for the tower just hidden past that construction gate. I know this place, I did my best sniper-shooting from that balcony over there!" As it turns out, the makers of the stealth video game Assassin’s Creed are incredibly historically accurate.

Historical Traveler Reviews Palazzo La Scala Venice
A lovely place to stay
We stayed here over Easter this year. The room we although not enormous was more than adequate. You only need somewhere to sleep! The staff were, without exception, extremely friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and tidy. It is situated in an ideal location for sightseeing.
Quiet, clean, though a little tight
We stayed at this hotel in March 04. We arrived very late at night, it was a little hard to find as one would not expect the entrance to the hotel fronting a street that is less than 2m wide. The double room (204)which was on the second floor fronting the street was very tight but it was clean, no bed bugs! The bathroom was quite large in comparison to the room. The buffet breakfast from 8am was not 4 star.
As this was our first trip to Venice and it was for a special occasion, the hotel was not a memorable element. The location is quite convenient along the San Marco-Rialto axis, but next time I would chose something closer to the water!
A very special place
We stayed in the La Scala in Feb 2003. There had been a mix up re booking and we were installed elsewhere for our 1st night ( 5 star Hotel nearby and V good), taken there and back and put into a suite of rooms as an apology for the disruption. Our suite was beautiful, newly done and spotlessly clean. Decor: Venetian with a modern slant; a small hotel but one we felt had a special intimacy. Our rooms weren't tiny.
They were spacious. There were no bugs and the steel mirrored elevator was a delight. Every floor was designed with a different colour scheme.
We plan to return there this Christmas if we can.
I was very pleasantly surprized by this hotel especially after reading the review sent on 7 July 2003. The rooms are small and perhaps more room for suitcases would be useful; however everything was spotlessly clean and the bathroom was very complete-lots of towels and so forth.
The receptionists and other employees were very helpful and friendly.
The hotel is ideally located.
Not really a hotel
This is not so much a hotel as someones house remade into tiny little rooms for vacationers. Dont be fooled by the four stars on the stationary. The room we had was so small we couldnt find anywhere to put our bags. We were also attacked by some sort of bug that lived in the sheets. The last two nights we had to spray bug repelent on us to be able to sleep. It was however cheap and close to everything. It also had airconditioning and a bulit in radio they were very proud of and a nice breakfast.
