Ideally located between the Rialto Bridge and St Marks square the hotel is an excellent base to explore Venice. The rooms where we stayed in a separate building a short walk away from the main hotel where breakfast was served. The rooms were clean, the staff were helpful and the breakfast was good. We would stay again.

In reality they told us this is not an hotel but a rent-rooms facility so as we arrive we had to call the near-by hotel "Bella something" I can't remember its name, a man came by and he gave us the key.But the room was VERY NICE even if small but that's normal in Venice.The location is EXCELLENT 10 minutes walk to San Marco Circus.As you arrive by car leave it in a car parking around(public one 24€ per day).If you arrive by train the stop is in front of the small ferry-boat named Vaporello(if by car it's near the public car parking under the bridge).Take it 'til the stop "Rialto Bridge"(4/5 stops after).The facility is 500 meter to the right from the stop.Breakfast is served in the other nearby hotel and it's VERY good.The STAFF of that hotel was VERY polite and arranged for us for the day after a trip to Murano Island for 5€(one way only you have to buy a vaporetto ticket to get back).2,5€/person is the Venice Tax for day to stay in the hotel.Very nice for the price(169€/night for the room).Venice is wonderful but not cheap:-)

Tidy rooms but very small (we couldn't almost enter to the room with our hand luggage!). Nice and clean bathroom, although the room wasn´t as clean as we wished. Very close to St. Marco Square and to Rialto Vaporetto. I recommend it to young couples. A little bit expensive taking into account all the services.

The room we stayed in was one of the most beautiful rooms we've ever been in during our travels, the hotel is very well located and the staff is helpful and nice. There are no "extras" offered, which was perfectly fine by us, but maybe the breakfast offer could use more variety as it's on the small side.

Small but very nice hotel. Nice rooms and very friendly staff. My only complaint was the restaurant the staff recommended twice, a place that served cheep food at high prizes and with poor service. Go for the smaller osterias at the other side of the Rialto bridge instead, or - if you want a really good meal - visit El Paradisio at Calle Paradisio, also on the other side of the bridge. Talk to Giordanno and have him compose your menue and tell him that Anders & Maria from Sweden recommended his restaurant. Not cheep, but well worth it!

We were disappointed. Having stayed in Venice a few years ago we compared our room this time to what we had last time - there was no comparison. The room we were first given was tiny and smelled of smoke - it had virtually no light/windows and was right next to the lift - the second room we got was a little larger but next to the dining room so at 6:30am every morning it was pretty noisy. We attended a wedding and there we saw over 10 hotel rooms of other guests - they all looked better than ours and the price was comparable.

Non seulement l'hotel correspondait parfaitement à la description et aux photos du site Venere, mais en plus, la rue est réellement tranquille et le Personnel était particulièrement agréable, serviable et gentil. Le petit déjeuner sous forme de buffet est également tout à fait correspondant à la description et la diversité était au rendez-vous, autant que la qualité. La proximité du Rialto et de la place Saint-Marc sont des atouts supplémentaires pour cet hotel, ainsi que la présence d'un ascenseur. En résumé, nous y retournerons et nous le recommanderons chaleureusement et sans aucune hésitation.

We had a terrific time. The only drawback was the noise in the street, particularly late at night and in the early morning when the shopkeepers rolled open those metal shutters. However, the people who worked at the hotel were friendly and provided good advice. The directions to the hotel were accurate. However, if you are going to Venice for the first time, you will need to ask where Calle de Bembo is because it looks like little more than a hole in the wall and is poorly marked. However, it is right at the Rialto vaporetto stop. The orange "line" Alialaguna (12 euros) ran from the airport to the Rialto stop. The other lines run to San Marco, which looks close to the hotel on the map. But the staff warned us of the many pedestrian bridges with lots of stairsteps to cross and to get off only at Rialto. We would gladly stay here again.

This hotel is in a fantasic location right in the heart of Venice. All of the great attractions are within walking distance lots of great bars and restaurants close by. We had a Suite for four nights. If you can afford it treat yourself, what a fantasic room really big. Watch when eating out as some of the local restaurants are very very expensive shop around before you eat. Try not to order a bottle of wine either a bit pricy order a caraf of house wine if possible a much better option. Good experience would recommend it.

I had a very nice stay at the Palazzo la Scala. The location was very easy to find and centrally located in a great area. Prior to my arrival I had received a detailed map and directions to the hotel which made it very easy to find even in the dark. I was travelling alone and felt very safe in this area at night. The rooms were very nice and very clean, although a lot smaller than I had expected but I'm coming from the US and I'm used to larger rooms. The location is perfect, lots of shops and restaurants in the area. There is access to an American Express location and visitor information center just across the plaza San Marco, close to the Alilaguna and water bus stations. I would definitely stay here again. The staff was AMAZING, I couldn't say anything bad about them. They were all so very nice, very helpful and very knowledgeable about the area and the places to go. The airlines had lost my luggage and the staff offered to continue to call the airlines for me until it was recovered, two days later. Thank you for a wonderful stay. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone. I will be staying here again on my next trip to Venice. Ciao.

This was by far the best hotel we stayed at during our two-week trip in Italy. The hotel is very very cozy and two blocks from the Rialto bridge, an unbeatable location. The hotel management contacted us as soon as our booking was confirmed and they kindly provided useful directions to find the hotel upon our arrival. We also told them that we were on our honeymoon and Michele, the hotel manager immediately upgraded us when we arrived to a larger room at almost no extra cost. He was always helpful and kind. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit (although no espresso or capuccino) and pastries. The rooms and bathrooms were absolutely great, comfortable and clean, VERY CLEAN, also quiet (they have great windows). Next time we go to Venice, we will definitely stay again at Palazzo la Scala. Indeed, you pay a bit more than what you would pay in any other 3 star hotels, but you definitely get much more: great service, good beds to rest after such long walks, and clean modern bathrooms, plus an unbeatable location! What else you could possibly aim for in such an expensive destination as Venice?

As we visit Rialto Bridge and St Mark's square each time we go to Venice, this hotel was excellently located and easy to find.Unfortunately, on arrival we were told we would have to move room after one night. First room was next to kitchen and breakfast room and vey noisy in the morning.The remaining nights we stayed in a fourth floor room-much quieter.Following discussions with the manager a cost reduction was given. This negative experience did cloud what is a nice hotel with friendly staff. We would stop here again but insist on identifying our room up front.

This was a very pretty and cozy little hotel. We liked it's individualist style which makes a lot of difference compared to a stay in a hotel operated by a chain. Description of how to get there could be a bit more detailed when it comes to the way from the vaporetto-station. Unfortunately, this questionaire does not allow ratings more detailed than 1, 5 or 10 points, I would have liked to give you 7 points instead of 5 for quietness of rooms.

Nicest hotel we stayed in during our three weeks in Italy. The bathroom was bright, clean and well-maintained. Our only negative issue was that our room shared a wall with the kitchen, so we heard breakfast preparations very early each morning. This noise problem was probably unique to our room (#106). We would definitely stay here again in a different room. Great location near, but not too near, St. Mark's Square and only a couple of minutes from the Rialto Bridge vaporetto dock on the Grand Canal.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Venice, a wonderful and unique city, and our stay at Palazzo la Scala. Our room was small but comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and more than adequate. The staff was extremely informative, pleasant, and helpful. The web site could use better directions on finding the hotel. Get off the vaporetto at Rialto, turn right walk along the Grand Canal a short distance, cross bridge over a small side canal, and then turn left into a small (3-4' wide) alley/street with the name Calle Bembo.Go one block and cross an alley/street. Continue ahead and the alley/street you are on changes its name to Calle del Fabbri. The door of the hotel is on a side alley to the left. The location being between the Rialto and Plaza San Marco is very convenient.

Venice is expensive place to stay. This hotel is worth of your money. Easy place to arrive: so near Rialto vaporetto stop as can be. Do not use the San Marco stop, too far away. Easy to find eventhough the small alley is not beautiful. Good place to stay with friend, we got separate beds as asked. We can highly recommend this hotel. Breakfast was good (buffet).

A very nice hotel and very convenient to St. Marks Square. We were offered an upgrade to a larger room at a reduced price and we accepted. It was a very comfortable room and at a good enough price. I would have disappointed with the room we would have been given before the upgrade, much smaller and basic than I would have thought at the original price, which certainly didn't make it undesireable, you would however be paying more for location than space and might want to take that into consideration. There were no real negatives and would be able to recommend.

Finding the hotel was just a bit difficult . . . because it is not directly on Calle dei Fabbri . . it is in a little alleyway off the main street . . . but we found it. Staff is EXCELLENT. Smell in the hallway unpleasantly pungent, but in the room not a problem. Great bathroom facility - clean, spacious although only a shower, no tub. Initial reaction to the room was "I can't BELIEVE a room this small". But the location was so good - halfway between Rialto and San Marco, and the staff was so helpful, spoke English very well and were very accommodating . . . that we were OK with the room. It is VERY tiny, only room for the bed. For the price and location, I would stay there again.

me and my girlfriend stayed for 3 nights in march 06 and had a great time.the rooms are a bit snug but big enough.the bathroom was nice and was also spacious.the staff were all brilliant,even letting us have breakfast after the alloted time as we had forgotten to change the time on our alarm (oops).the location is excellent,only about a five minute walk from both the st marks square and the rialto bridge.we really enjoyed everything about our trip and said if we ever go back we would definately stay at the palazza la scala again.

Very friendly, helpful and courteous staff. Hotel could possibly provide better map / location instructions as entrance is just off Calle Fabbri.

What a fabulous location, a little hard to find at first, but this is because it is perfectly tucked in between St. Marks and the Rialto bridge. Staff could not have been more accomodating. Stayed in the suite, excellent. Word to the wise, if you are flying into Venice, Treviso airport is an hour at least away in another town. The bargain between the airfare out of Treviso verses the cost af a taxi( aprox. 85 euro) is not such a bargain after all. Try to fly into Marco Polo. This hotel had a great breakfast also. Highly recomend!!!!!

Awesome service and in the middle of where we wanted to be in Venice. The rooms aren't big, but we haven't seen a big one in Italy yet. The staff is wonderful. It is a cute and quaint Hotel. Great location for the price. We would definately return. Thanks guys

This is perfectly located for a weekend stay in Venice. The main touristic sites are in the area and it's a pleasure to walk to all these wondeful places. Rialto Bridge vaporetto stop is about 2 minutes walk away from the hotel. The bathroom was extremely clean. I would recommand this hotel to any friends.

Our stay here was great. The staff were welcoming, friendly, efficient and professional and multi-lingual. Our room was small but elegant and had good decor,with a large bed, mini bar, lovely bathroom, limited wardrobe space, a safe (no charge). There is a lift. In spite of the very limited space in which to move, we found the room very pleasant to return to after a long day walking around Venice. We had read that it was hard to find but we went straight there. We got the express bus from the airport to P Roma, then the Vaporetto No 82 or No 1. If you get off the No 1 at Rialto then that is right at the end of the street (alley). So walk down the alley, which becomes C Fabri and follow the numbers, a gap in the numbers will identify where the hotel is just off down a small alley. This makes it very quiet. The location is then superb turn right and the lane takes you to the Rialto in 3 mins, turn left and the lane takes you to P San Marco in 10 mins - how good is that. Breakfast is nice, juice, cereal, yoghurt, cheese, ham, bread rolls, croissants, tea (various), coffee, biscuits. We would have no hesitation in staying there again and fully intend to. We advise using the Lonely Planet to choose where to eat. It is easy to pay a lot of money and get poor quality food in Venice but with the LP, whatever your budget you can be sure to get good value and good food. Jackie and Steve

Die meisten Kommentare, die ich gelesen habe, sind zutreffend. Die Lage des Hotels ist optimal, die Angestellten äußerst freundlich, die Zimmer geschmackvoll eingerichtet, gemütlich, relativ klein, aber sehr sauber, das Bad geräumig und schön, trotz zentraler Lage ruhig (Schallschutzfenster). Das Frühstück ist für italienische Verhältnisse gut, mit einem deutschen oder österreichischen Frühstücksbüfett aber nicht zu vergleichen. Kurz: Ich empfehle das Hotel Freunden und Bekannten weiter und werde auch selbst bei meinem nächsten Venedig-Trip wieder dort wohnen, weil auch das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmt.

I don't recommend this hotel to others. Our double room was too small to open suit case. Maybe room space was 10-15 sq.m. Bathroom was quite tiny, as well, perhaps less than 3 sq.m. We couldn't open windows because quite close to next building. We couldn't have any sunshine. TV was quite small and old. Our room was so far from the phote on its website. Servises provided wa probably not bad but tiny room made us so unconfortable. No internet access in our room and neighborhood. We booked this hotel 6 month before stay because of our stay was on high season but this tiny room was provided. Location was good but difficult to find out.

The location was very convenient and the staff were very helpful. Our room was located next to the breakfast room, so there was some noise during set up. The rooms were small but well appointed and clean. The staff also arranged for us to attend a concert on Christmas Eve. There was a slight odor problem on the lower staircase, but it didn't affect our room at all.

On the whole this is an excellent hotel; my wife and I very much enjoyed our stay. The only issue was that we paid for a premium room, but the room we were given seemed a little small. It may just be that all rooms in the hotel were small. However, our room was situated right next to the breakfast room, which meant that we invariably got woken up at 8am, even though we were trying to have a lie in. We were disapointed that, although we apparently had a premium room, this was situated next to the breakfast facilities. Perhaps the hotel should consider this? Despite this, my wife and I both had an excellent stay in Venice.

The location of the hotel is superb, you couldn't be more central. The rooms are clean and comfortable but tiny. We stayed three nights and had to live out of the suitcase because there was nowhere to store clothes. The small wardrobe was more than half filled with a safe so could only hang half a dozen short items (e.g.jumpers/shirts). Similarly the breakfast room is very small - you may end up queuing in the hallway.

Ruth and I had the most incredible time in Venice and staying at this hotel was part of that lovely experience. The staff were so helpful and friendly. My only gripe would be the instructions on how to get from the river bus to the hotel. If you know the correct way then it is really easy. Nonetheless, I hope to stay in this hotel again soon. Big thank you to all the staff.

I stayed at this hotel at the beginning of September 2005 with my mum and we both loved it. The Room was very pretty and clean. The staff were very nice and helpful with anything we needed. The only suggestion I would make is that the Breakfast Room should be on a lower floor away from the bedrooms as our room was right beside it and it's quite small. I would highly recommend this hotel, it's right in the centre and only a short walk to St. Marks Square :o)
