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.

Travel Blogs from Venice
The buildings in Florence were pretty crazy. The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore or Florence Cathedral, a protected UNESCO site, is a main attraction for good reason. Red and green marble decorate the exterior of the massive building! We saw a number of Medici palaces and arts schools, and the Ponte Vecchio, another famous bridge. We also attempted to find the David Statue, until circling an entire building and realizing it was on the inside ...
... The palace has a boat dock in front of it. This palace also has a quiet garden that we enjoyed. Our museum pass also provided entrance to this very beautiful building on the Grand Canal.
Exhausted from art exposure we walked back to the hotel, rested and then found another street restaurant for dinner. So far, we have found the food in Venice mediocre and greatly overpriced. That’s what happens with 17 million tourists per year.
... across the Tourist Information Office and so we purchased a much more detailed map for Paul to check out as the one I picked up was the one marking out the Jazz concerts!
As I am writing this blog it has just turned midnight and I can hear the bells of St Marks Church chiming outside. We are so very close to 'St Marks Square' which is up and over one little bridge and around a little Street and then we appear from behind it.
The location of our digs is such a bonus ...
... in search of gelato. We eventually find some in a store just around the corner as we stroll along doing some more shopping, Holly,Bree and Mikhaila all find some pretty cute European hats for only £10, bargain. Our next to do in Venice is our canal ride along the river which is pretty exciting so the whole group meets up for this and splits into groups of 6. The ride lasts for 1/2 an hour which we felt ...
