Still Ringing

A travel blog entry by collenberg

This is a top pick!

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 …

Out With The Car, In With The Gondola

... off point, and then trouble getting the car rental people in the airport to tell us where it was. Eventually we made it, but it was a lot more annoying than we would have liked. Then we caught a bus (by the skin of our teeth) into Venice, and a boat to our hotel. In Venice, very little of the city is accessible by car, so the public transit is mostly boat based. Anyways, we ...

Venice day 3

... singing and one playing an accordian. There were some close encounters with other boats and an occasional minor splash or two, and again, beautiful scenery. The gondola ride was as wonderful as they had hoped, very relaxing and quite romantic. By mid afternoon they had bought more jewelry and local art, tried several disappointing desserts, ate more froccacia and experimented with a fish kabob. By the end of the evening, they ...

Subduing Stress in Venice

... dwindled. Wed love to stay a while in Norway working, or Stockholm, or Holland or Germany, but Nat only has a UK visa, and even with my EU passport, alot of better jobs around Europe have residency requirements. Considering salaries, we aren't high rollers back in Australia, but compared to the UK and a lot of Europe, our salaries are better in Australia. Even comparatively, considering the cost of living. Some EU countries offer better salaries, but getting jobs ...

Views of Venice

... the height of Venice's power, much of these materials being older than the building itself.

Thanks to Luisella's status as a licensed tour guide, we are able to bypass the lengthy tourist line and walk right in. Immediately, it is a visual feast. Barely inside the narthex your attention is drawn downward to the beautiful marble floors and upward to the intricate gold mosaic domes which depict a variety of Old Testament stories. ...

    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.
