With a grand whitewashed façade made from two pensioni, the Londra Palace has been a Venetian landmark for over 140 years. Its location overlooking the lagoon, close to Piazza San Marco, just can’t be bettered; no wonder Tchaikovsky was inspired to compose part of his Fourth Symphony during his stay here in 1877. While no two of the 53 rooms are the same, all mix lofty ceilings, Biedermeier antique furniture, gorgeous fabric-covered walls, Murano glass chandeliers and silk brocade curtains with contemporary high-tech necessities. And all have stunning views of the San Marco Basin and the lagoon on one side, and the rooftops and bell towers of the city on the other. The marble-clad bathrooms have large tubs as well as showers and are stocked with delicious-smelling Ortigia lotions and potions from Sicily. After a hard day’s sightseeing, sip a bellini on the terrace overlooking the waterfront promenade and the lagoon beyond, before dining at the acclaimed restaurant, Do Leoni. The menu changes seasonally and offers a sophisticated take on traditional Venetian and international fare, like mille feuille turbot served with porcini and white wine, and an irresistible array of desserts.
How to Get There
A very nice hotel in the middle of everything. My room was very nice and the view was great. The service was ok, and the staff was not the most friendly. It has a nice outdoor seating are for either drinks or dinner.
A fantastic hotel in a great location and for a great value. The hotel is close to st Mark's sq and has stunning views of the grand canal. Rooms are fresh and modern and full of marble. They are all so quiet that you wouldn't know u are in the heart of Venice. Breakfast was glorious and especially as u can sit al fresco and watch the world go by. More important than ever the staff are superb and attention to detail without be too fusy is their talent. Love this place and cant wait to come back
We arrived after a very long day. Boston to Paris to Venice. The Londra Palace hotel is quiet and elegant. Situated on the Grand Canal, it gives one a beautiful view of the canal and the passing scene. We usually don't eat at hotel restaurants, but after walking along the canal, we were ready for a quiet venue. The meal was wonderful as was the service.
Overall, the rooms, the bar, the restaurant and the staff exceeded our expectations.
