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.

... and tried to gracefully get in, then I got confused to where I was suppose to be sitting and the guy started yelling at me, so I then realised I was on the wrong side of the boat and it was starting to tip over and wobble!!! Then he starting cursing at me in Italian and I started my terrified giggle and then he yelled at me to STOP!! Omg, I was still giggling when I finally sat down on the right side and he was just shaking his head at me. ...
... as if located in a church with vaulted ceilings. The statuesque figures are so detailed that you would immediately recognise the face of the model used for Mary if you saw her in the street. Bellini's use of tonal range makes the clothing worn by the figures appear to be of real silk, and his use of perspective is so accurate the on first glance, you feel that you could walk into the painting and around the central figures. People flock to I Frari for ...

On the Fast Ferry to Greece at the moment and you are allowed to camp in your vehicle. The ferry has an open deck, so fumes, and death by carbon monoxide poisoning shouldn’t be a problem. If you don’t receive any more posts you will know I was wrong on that score!
... the medieval setting of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet's, from there we strolled around the picturesque market square. We left Verona about 4pm for our destination Venice area for 2 days. We arrived at our hotel Mercure Venice Marghera about 6pm, time for a shower & change of clothes ready for our optional Venetian night out and dinner. We bused it to the port, embarked on a motorboat for a cruise along the impressive ...
... we had to run to the meeting spot to make the glass factory tour. At the start they talked to us about glass, and it was as exciting as it sounds. After though, they made a jug right in front of our eyes in about 2 minutes and it was amazing. They said they make real ones over I about 2 weeks because of how they heat and cool it, but because it was a demo they made it quick and just melted it again so it wouldn't explode. After they took us though the gift store and I had my ...
