      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.

      ... had a great location. That night we ventured back out to a local pizzeria. It was and still is currently the best pizza I have had. The chef tossed and made it right in front of us. Amazing!

      Our second day was our busy schedule day! We woke up bright and early to enjoy/take advantage of our continental breakfast. I can not tell you how nice it was to eat cereal and yogurt again. Cereal is one of the main foods from back home that I have been ...

      ... Out to another square, again with impressive buildings and a large market. The market was a mixture of goods, souvenirs and clothes and was quite good, hardly any tack to be seen.
      Strolled back to Piazza Bra and enjoyed an afternoon coffee. It was a really lovely place to sit and admire the surroundings.
      Didn't get back to Venice til after 7pm, so a long but really good day.

      ... and non-touristy....he sent us to an extremely quiet neighborhood square that had only one restaurant. We sat outside, and in true European style, our meal took over two hours! We did not have any pasta, believe it or not! It was sliced steak and mashed potatoes and we ordered roasted potatoes, too....and was all very good, especially the beef....but not what we traditionally think of as Italian food! Very interesting! It was also fun to see that the proprietor appeared ...

      ... in the lounge who looked at us and said "oh noooooo!!!" and Nate said "you might not want to go outside right now." We couldn't stop giggling as we dripped our way to our room. Hot showers and some snacks got us back on track and we're just going to stay put tonight. We'll certainly never forget this night! Or this day, since start to finish nothing really went as planned. We keep joking "don't worry Nate, I got this", but all in all it wasn't really that bad. ...

      ... Finally you catch someone walking past you, and ask for the bill. They shrug off your request with annoyance. And then they wander past your table two or three more times before they'll finally bring the bill. Wow. Now I really appreciate American waiters and waitresses, who feel their job is actually to help you.

      But the people in general seem friendlier here than in the heart of ...
