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
We booked this hotel mostly for two reasons: for its perfect location close to venetian biennale Arsenale and Giardinni. Second-it is expected to be a comfortable and pleasant stay for two. I would say It is totally beats all our expectations. First of all-the water line transport gets you right from the airport to the stop just opposite the front door of the hotel San Zaccaria. It takes approximately 1h20m and cost €15 one way. Excellent interior and refined manners of the staff will meet you inside. Luxury rooms decorations. All you need is in here-bath robes, cosmetics, sleepers, perfect bed clothes and nice aroma in the room. Moreover. The cleaning lady is absolutely invisible and manage to clean our room several times a day even if we didn’t ask for it. We found our room clean and all the clothes put together accurately after every time we left the room. First class service. Thanks to the management and all the staff for the brilliant service.
This is by far the most amazing experience we have shared together on our anniversary. The hotel, the staff and the food were absolutely fabulous. We were greeted with a bottle of champagne and a card of good wishes in our room on arrival. The terrace provided breathtaking views of the grand canal. This was a wonderful romantic experience throughout.
My partner and I really enjoyed staying at the Hotel Londra Palace for our first visit to Venice! The staff were very helpful and friendly, the rooms were beautiful and clean, the breakfast provided was delicious and the location was superb! The hotel staff would provide us with complimentary Venchi heart chocolates each night when asking if we needed housekeeping, which always makes us feel very welcomed! I highly recommend this hotel!
