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 …
... follow the action, and I manage to pick out a few words here and there with my very basic Italian. The very first aria, Largo al factotum, is quite a well-known one, and it's fantastic to actually put the words in context for the first time. The plot is a simple story of boy meets girl, they fall in love, girl's guardian objects, boy's rascally friend and barber Figaro helps boy to win the day, boy turns out to be a Duke, happily ever after. I'm sure the cast won't ...
... There are five in our group now, and the apartment is well appointed with three bedrooms, each with a bathroom and in listening distance of the Academy of Music, where students are practicing with a variety of instruments. A trumpeter begins his scales with very flat notes, but improves as he ascends, and some classical pieces we hear, blend naturally and pleasantly into the nature of the ...
... not for cobblestone and staircases. The city was beautiful so it made up for all of the walking, and we got to see most of Venice on our adventure to the hotel. We walked to the famous San Marco square and stopped a lot of shops along the way. We finally found a restaurant that we both thought would have very good traditional Italian food. Oh we're we wrong! But both being very polite, we only ...
We had a restless night. Edie tells me this morning that she hardly slept at all. As well as the obvious, she is worried about not being able to send and receive emails. I have thought about this too, and I said we should just open up another account with Gmail and worry about the one they stopped when we get home. About 800 passengers disembarked this morning and we believe about 1000 will be joining us this afternoon. Our tour today takes us to the ...

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.
