    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.

    ... the beach. The sand is a dirt brown colour & they have no waves. It's meant to be the best beach In Europe & Grant explains what the others are like & you don't travel for the beaches. No wonder Europeans go nuts for Aussie beaches. I mind the bag while Grant has a dip. Wandering back to the ferry Grant has his first piece of Margherita pizza & I go for an Italian hot dog calzone type thing. Of course topped of with gelato. When travelling in Europe ...

    ... to go just about anywhere. It turned out to be a really touristy spot, however much of Venice is touristy and geared towards people looking for that experience. Regardless, the pizza was AMAZING and yes, we did have beer with it instead of wine...Though we noticed that beer is in much smaller glasses than at home, but it turned out to be the perfect amount. Running on no sleep and no food for so long, the wine didn't seem as appealing after ...

    ... Locarno de Vecie. Our room is delightful, and the shutters overlook a small canal, and the lively markets. They sell fresh fruit and vegetables, strings of drying tomatoes, piles of brilliant red romas, large apples green and red, herbs, greens. Much of the seafood is still wriggling ( to my horror). We have no kitchen facilities, and so we will not be able to make use of all the fresh food, except to supplement our lunch and dinner. The central alleyways, bridges ...

    Remember that I mentioned I decided to take a lot of pictures of the quaint and often beautiful doors in Italy. Since I went no where today and took no pictures, instead, here is a selection of the photos of doors that I have taken so ...

    ... Euge knows how the navigate a map otherwise we'd be like a girl we saw sobbing on a street corner with groceries in her hand....

    Serafina has been dreaming about buying a mask since we landed in Rome, so she finally got her wish. Of course my daughter has very expensive taste but she's been doing a happy dance ever since we handed the lovely woman all our Euro. We now have to work out how to send it home as it's a little bit too delicate ...
