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.

... half hour. We boarded the ship today and after unpacking and attending the muster, we relaxed on our balcony with a glass of wine to watch the sail away. We're looking forward to the next week at sea, relaxing by the pool and reading. We love lazy sea days.

We have met some fascinating people on our cruises. We had dinner last night with Tom Sheridan and his wife, Mary. Tom is the author of Tom’s Port Guides at ...
... the kids went ice skating at the local rink and we decided to try somewhere else for dinner - kids enjoyed Hamburgers and chips. The next day was an early start, as we needed to make our way to Milan. After a quick breakfast whipped up by Lorenz's collaborator, we were out the door heading back to the cars by Water Taxi. The way out was a lot easier than the way in. Venice is a beautiful city but it is a hard playpen to get around in the cold with the ...
... I walked off along some of the small little side streets which took me down to the large river which leads through the city. Never in my life have I ever seen such a busy waterway. There were boats of all shapes and sizes coming and going in all directions.
I continued on along this busy main shopping street and finally came upon the main railway station. This station seemed rather out of place in this town as it just seemed a bit too modern and out ...
... train that night. We then headed upstairs to leave our bags with reception for the day, and headed to St Mark's square. We navigated through the people to head up the St Mark's Campanile first, a tower in the square that has the best views over Venice. There was an elevator to get to the top, no stairs, and it was reasonably pricey (8 euros), especially seen as you can't really spend too much time up there, what with all the people, but there were some good views to ...
... passing vapourettos and water taxis! It was an expensive twenty minutes, but then whats NOT expensive in Europe? (Let me answer that - nothing!)
When we are getting out of the gondola and are about to leave, the Gondolier asks where we are from. When we tell him New Zealand, he says " ahh, Kiwis, crazy flying for 25 hours to come here!!!" Didn't tell him we took the long way round and it took us much longer. It was our pleasure, Mister Gondolier! Our ...
