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 …
... before that time to load the bikes back into the boat. That only gave them about an hour of ride time. The rest of us could stay and walk around in the town center until 4:00 pm to meet up for a guided walking tour. That gave me a lot of time to explore and venture out to the train station to purchase our train tickets to Verona and Florence. After the guided tour, we were transported by taxi to the port just outside ...
... Magnificent frescoes/mosaics on the domes. We checked out the treasures (various bones from saints and loot brought back by the Crusaders and St Marks sarcophagus.
Yvonne wandered around the square checking out the shops. Then we walked and walked and walked. Had a gelati at Susu Gelatoteca. It isn't too bad if you are not trying to get anywhere. We finally got to the Gallerie dell' Accademia ...
... 2 euros it is a good way to take a Gondola ride without forking out the rest. But be warned it'll leave you wanting more!
At this point we felt as if we had walked for miles. So as the sun went down we made our way back to the hotel. Today we would see Venice by the way it is intended by boat!
Day 2 - Venice by Boat
After a big long thing last night we had decided we just had to get a Gondola ride. Who knows when we would be in Venice again. And what trip ...

After a while some of us headed back outside for a bit before some epic winds came and blew an umbrella right at me… an umbrella with concrete on the bottom! And it started bucketing down. We all tried to get back into the bar but the chick closed it and made us all stand out in the rain under one tiny marquee. We then decided ...

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.
