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.

... world! :-). Lots of caffeine! We walked around Venice - exploring the ins and outs of the various canals, found some great Italian leather purses to purchase and then headed to Morano, an island out in the bay. Lots of glass factories and neat little shops . .. We meandered around a bit, taking pictures, browsing the shops, people watching . .. Especially intriguing were the beautiful Morano glasses - we thought some of them would be just perfect for ...
... it just gets maddening! So when we finally made our way to St. Mark's Square today, we felt rather proud! And it was not without much angst, I assure you! And oh my gosh the crowds! Thousands and thousands of people milling around the maze of a city, congregating in the squares, shopping in the hundreds of shops (I did a little shopping of my own), eating at the hundreds of cafes....just not like anything we've ever seen. St. Mark's is pretty, and seeing the sea and the other ...
... the Po Delta, a wild life preserve. The weather was cool and sunny and we enjoyed watching different bird species, fish, bugs, plants and flowers along the way. Lunch stop was at a nice road side Ristorante along the bike path. In the mid afternoon, we stopped at a quiet little town called Porto Viro, again for gelatos and coffee, and finally continued on to meet Vita Pugna As soon as we're on board, the boat sailed ...
... isn't the end of the cruise for everyone so it will be interesting to see how many people get off tomorrow. The ship will now go to the Greek Islands, Turkey and Istanbul returning to Venice in 2 weeks time.
Surprisingly lots of people are disembarking, but in an orderly fashion. We are off the ship and heading to the water bus by 9.30am..... The sky is dark and ominous but we are optimistic and have dressed lightly. By the time we get to St ...
... right, a very amazing place.
The first task was to get to our AirBnB lodging and drop off the bags. There are no cars in Venice and for good reason - they won't fit. Picture, as you will see, little alley ways that are sometimes only two people abreast in width, and then add to that 30 degree corners and no rhyme or reason to the spiderweb of directions. We followed a map I had printed and compared it to the GPS location on my tablet map - we got tight to our ...
