      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.

      We also went to St Marks square and the Basilica. The Basilica is a big church that they built with lots of mosaics made of gold.

      The next day we wondered around Venice and looked at the classical Venician masks.

      3rd - 4th October - Lake Como
      4th - 6th October - Venice

      What a mission from La Spezia to our accommodation on Lake Como!!! The infrequency of transport really hit us today which meant less time to explore Lake Como. Unfortunately we were about 5km from Bellagio so decided once we got to our B&B we would just chill out in the garden and enjoy our complimentary bottle of red looking out over Lake Como. It really is a beautiful lake and felt some ...

      Found a great little patisserie in one of the back streets on the way back to the hotel and partook of afternoon tea. Very passable almond slice, fruit tart and a cannelloni were consumed - and went back for a small strudle !! Ah - the life in Venice !!

      Found a very modern cafe near the hotel which served light meals for dinner. Very few fully refurbished places to modern standards in Venice and ...

      Cruising the canals of Venice!

      ... He was able to tell us a few things as we went around and the boat man also pointed out the house of Marco Polo and Casablanca. Very cool! It was amazing cruising around the canals with so much traffic and no one crashing! The buildings are all built on stilts and doorsteps are right to the water so the only way into some places is to get a boat. After the gondola ride were free to do what we wanted. Jeff and Gwynn (American couple) had found a little pasta place on trip advisor with ...

      I had a calzone and Dilyara had a Pizza (eggplant, zucchini, cheese, peppers, tomatoes). While eating, we watched a documentary on the history of Venice on the Ipad. After sitting for sometime, it started to get crowed at the café, so we switched off the Ipad and continued on our journey.

      We found a grocery ...
