My daughter and I stayed only one night at the Londra Palace. It is a beautiful hotel of about 50 guest rooms. It has a very welcoming lobby area, an outdoor patio, where breakfast and lunch are served, and an excellent restaurant, where we dined during our stay. We also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, which was excellent. Our room was extremely well-appointed and we had windows that opened up over the Venice Lagoon. We also had a balcony that did not overlook the Lagoon, but nonetheless, was very nice with views over tiled rooftops. The day we were there it was Italian Independence Day and there were large crowds of people. That being said, we could return to our room and look down on all of the activity and escape the throngs of people. The Londra Palace is located very near St. Mark's Square and other attractions and there are water taxis conveniently close. The hotel staff was also very attentive and helpful. Although not overlooking the Grand Canal where many of Venice's exclusive hotels are located, I highly recommend the Londra Palace. It is a wonderful hotel, operated by an equally wonderful staff.
