This historic hotel prides itself on having received such artists and celebrities as Tchaikovsky, D’Annunzio, Verne, Brodsky and Borges. Since 1853, they and others have been captivated by Londra Palace and its dream location — Piazza San Marco is a stone’s throw away, as are the vaporetti and gondolas for exploring the canals. One hundred windows look out over the San Marco basin and the lagoon, with the views over the roofs and church towers from the other side of the building being no less beautiful. Inside, fine furniture, tapestries and brocades adorn the elegantly decorated rooms; and the restaurant adds a creative touch to the great classics of Venetian cuisine.

Since 1853, this historic hotel has welcomed many famous artists and figures such as Tchaikovsky, D’Annunzio, Verne, Borges and Brodsky. All were won over by its atmosphere and perfect location on the Riva degli Schiavoni. A short distance from the Piazza San Marco, the Bridge of Sighs and La Serenissima’s most iconic spots, it is also in easy reach of Venice’s most authentic and lesser-known districts. Londra Palace has 53 rooms; each one unique, they all feature fine furniture, upholstery and precious brocades as well as marble bathrooms. The classic rooms also provide stunning views over the town’s rooftops and steeples. And with one hundred windows overlooking the lagoon, each sunrise and sunset is a brilliant spectacle to behold.
