    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.

    Pleasantly Surprized


    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.

    Arrivederci Europe

    A travel blog entry by wanderingwyatts on Aug 13, 2014

    Well.....we've had our final day of wandering thru Europe for 2014. Our experience in Venice is really hard to explain or summarize. It is unlike anyplace I've ever seen. I think John may have said it best when he said it's like a ghetto that no one admits is a ghetto! Very few things here are pretty in the traditional sense of the least traditional for Midwest Americans! Things are not painted and maintained and scrubbed clean...and I'm talking about the outside areas. I have ...

    Last day in Venice, what a clanger!

    Well we haven't been let down by our last day in Venice - may even have saved the best until last! This morning we joined the queue firstly for the Basilica, another imposing cathedral embellished with lots of gold and with the most amazing tiled floor - sorry no pictures were allowed and unlike many who clearly could not read all the signs, we took no pictures. Fortunately there were some good postcards.
    Next we queued for the Campanile, the ...

    ... impressive. It's immensity is daunting after 4 hours of winding through dark narrow little alley ways. Then to suddenly step out into this massive open space is amazing. Churches, Towers, Palaces. It's a lot for a person to take in. I tried to do a panorama shot, but I don't think this site is letting me upload it. Too big... Oh well. I did it, although it still doesn't really capture the enormity of it all. And one of our ...

    ... handed my neck wallet by my husband (see Athens entry for important backstory if you miss the irony), and he had emptied it except for seven quarters. I questioned if maybe he should be the one carrying seven quarters, and why would he hand me it back with seven quarters that wouldn't buy me a thing in port. I had had dollars and euros stashed in it, and Dave decided to consolidate all the cash with him now that our money supply was getting smaller towards the ...

    Pizza, ice cream and cake diet

The waiter was really good and quite the comedian with everyone and when I left he shock my hand. I carried on walking until I hit the accedemia stop before jumping back on the water bus (thanks to julia wood who convinced me to get a ticket as I wasn't planning to originally) back to rialto to my hotel. I'm now laid prone on the bed ...
