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.

Another glorious day in the beautiful Venice. :) we have a strange phenomenon today... There is a big shiny ball in the sky that has turned the sky blue instead of grey .... yay we have SUNSHINE :) 8:30 on the coach and then boat back to the island. The boat took us to the island of Murano where we saw a demonstration of the famous glass blowers. Then we were back ...
... along three kids and laundry for five! After a few missteps, we made our way there and figured out the machines which luckily had English instructions. There were two large and empty machines, thank goodness, as we began by loading the small machines and we would have used five of them!! Each large machine cost 10 Euro, plus 1 Euro for soap and 16 Euro total for drying. Many of the clothes were still damp when we were done. But ...
... to me. The museum ticket also gets us into the Muesum Correr including the archeological Muesum across the otherside of the square. We only have 45 minutes until it closes so we breeze through it quite quickly. They have an ornamental box found under a church that dates back to the 5th century. Crazy old! Grant explains later when we pass a church that the church is 700 years older than Australia. That really puts it in perspective. All Australians we meet on the bus ...
... in this room and still not see all the paintings. It was truly astounding! We were able to explore below the palace and into the prisons. It was quite a sad looking place with tiny cells that looked like caves. We could see out to the bridge of sighs from one of the windows. The bridge was named the Bridge of Sighs, because that is where the families would stand to wave goodbye and cry and "sigh" to their loved ones ,who had been imprisoned. I really enjoyed visiting the ...
... re boats. After a couple of stops and a scoot across some open water we arrived at Murano.
Murano is famous for being the home of Venetian glass, with factories, galleries, shops and the Museum. As soon as we got off the bus, a guy was at the jetty saying free glass blowing exhibition. Like lost sheep, most people followed his directions, Di and Pete included, and we saw some colorful and unusual tumblers being made. Have to admit it was interesting but of course, it ...
