Historical Traveler Reviews The Australian Hostel Cairo
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.

... people in there eating Chinese food. I’ve noticed that a lot of Italian’s aren’t really into trying new food’s. Which is why their culture is so strong but just sometimes…. A little Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, African, Thai etc doesn’t hurt… :p
The food was incredible. We ordered sweet and sour chicken with fried rice and dim sims! SPECTACULAR! :D It all cost about 25 DOLLARS! We were so full! :D Money well spent!
We arrived ...
... come across without really knowing where we we in relation to the 'real' Venice - we were still on the mainland at this point. Without realising it, we'd winged ourselves into the ideal campsite - was only a quick 10 min bus ride into town. And for a change, the pitch was actually on grass/dirt, rather than the recent rocks James had had the fun of hammering into. As you do when in Venice we aimlessly roamed the streets and invariably got lost without really getting lost. There ...
By 10.30, after packing, breakfast and checking out, we were on the train to Venice, which was a comfortable 2 hours of leisurely reading. Italian regional rains are modern and fast and with a pre-booked ticket, you always have a seat.
At Venice San Lucia, we carefully followed the instructions of our Airbnb host and caught the vaporetto (water bus) to Fondamente ...
... lasagna and my cod bother feel rather flat. My cod was thoroughly overcooked (gratin with potatoes and cherry tomatoes) and full of bones, and Bradley's lasagna was just tasteless and a bit greasy. Not the best start to our meals in Venice, but Bradley got us out of paying for the fish which was good!! We decided a gelato was definitely in order so headed to Grom where I had some nougat icecream and the flavour of the month (peach, choc chips, amaretto biscuits) ...
... at once, want everything immediately, then are gone. It is a kind of feeding frenzy. It is horrific when three are in dock at the same time which had been the case the day before. The ships also cruise right by St Mark's Square making it seem small and insignificant. That is utterly unacceptable to the Venetians. When we got back to the hotel I went to the top deck to get some pictures from that vantage point then went back to my room. I am looking forward to another sleep in that lovely ...
