      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.

      ... sensual lighting. This was the place we thought to celebrate the last leg of our road trip. We entered expectantly inside, were greeted with warm smiles and were ushered "this way this way". We eagerly followed to find us being led through the kitchen to another side room of hard wooden chairs, no ambience and an atmosphere which felt like Ma Kettles kitchen. We glanced at the menu and with a unanimous nod decided it wasn't for us and made a hasty ...

      ... and ended up eating it all!! I was soon in a food coma and we all spent the afternoon napping on the picnic table cos there were too many green ants on the ground and it was too hot in our tent. Shaun, Jennie and I went to the restaurant later that night for dinner and shared a pizza and a can of coke between us which came to 2€ each. That night I woke up at 4am feeling sick from the heat and when I checked the temperature I realized why, it was 27 degrees with 65% ...

The food was good, no complaints here either, and our bill was 67 Euros. A bit steep for a meal that was just "good" but we were in Venice and paying for the location along the canal which was nice. The canal was loaded with boats and gondolas going every which way and ...
