“Luxurious Stay in Venice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the Londra Palace on a trip to Italy for our 10th wedding anniversary, and found the hotel outstanding. We stayed in a spacious junior suite on the 4th floor (Room 410). When we arrived, there was a bottle of champagne waiting in our room, on ice, compliments of the hotel. Our room had a beautiful view of the lagoon, and the view was unbeatable. The noise from below was not a distraction (the four windows were very well insulated). The room was luxurious, and very comfortable.

The staff was friendly and helpful, helping us to make dinner reservations, find transportation, and to help us navigate Venice (beautiful city). I would go back to this hotel and easily recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Venice.

We loved the hotel and it's location - we had a room with a balcony that overlooked the lagoon. The room was clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Lots of hangers in the closet. A safe - with a key you had to take with you. Laundry service was a little less expensive than we had paid at another hotel. Nice space in the bathroom with lovely bath products.

We had dinner in their dining room and it was memorable - among the nicest dinners we had in our 3 weeks in Italy. It was also one of the more expensive dinners but was worth the price. Service was very professional and attentive. We eat outside on their terrace with a view of the lagoon.

We were a little disappointed with the breakfast. The Continental Buffet was very nice with a lot of good options - lovely fresh fruit and juices. But there was a extra charge for eggs, bacon sausage etc. At the price we paid for the room - hot options should have been included. We stayed in 4 hotels in our time in Italy (all in about the same price range) and all offered hot options - one selected to have the waiter take your order and deliver food to your table rather than have eggs/bacon already prepared which may be wasteful.

Spent 7 nights, just checked out yesterday. Outstanding on every level. We had room 502, best view, king bed, massive bathroom and a jacuzzi to enjoy the bottle of champagne from the manager in!! Everything is top notch from service, food, drinks, location, front desk and amenities. The only place to stay for a 5* star experience. Thank You Londra Palace Hotel.

Well maintained room and hotel, attentive staff, and our room was maintained in pristine condition. The folks at the desk, bar and restaurant were very very helpful and the service was great. It is congested in this area, but not noisy. And where in Venice is it not crowded these days? We really appreciated our breakfasts and found the staff to be very attentive. I'd stay here again.

Londra Palace was one of the Venice hotels suggested by our travel agent. We had reserved a water view room and upon arrival, they promptly upgraded us to the Tchaikovsky Suite (actually where the Russian composer wrote some of his music while staying in Venice). An absolutely beautiful and spacious room with all of that historical charm, albeit on the first floor (maybe Peter was afraid of heights?). We dropped our bags and immediately headed to the dining room for lunch after traveling for hours from Milan by car, train, and boat. Even though we arrived just after they stopped serving lunch, the staff graciously accommodated us. Likewise, the personnel working the concierge desk was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Ditto for the hotel's bartenders. The buffet breakfast and it's various offerings was delicious. Very comfortable bed, very quiet room despite its proximity to the main thoroughfare, and extremely effective sunlight blocking drapes. So, why 4 and not 5 stars? I was not in love with the location. While literally steps from the Vaporetto stop, the crowds outside the hotel were unbearable. Wave after wave of mainly Asian tourists with cameras and umbrellas for shade(it was in the 90s when we were there) continuously paraded. Trying to walk from the hotel to St Marks Square, which should've been a few minute walk, was a 10 minute game of pinball. While some may love the hotel's convenience to the Vaporetto stop and Piazza, the next time I go to Venice I believe I will look for a quiter, less touristy location.

Room Tip: Get a water view room and allow the concierge to make recommendations

Dear Sir, dear Madam,

thank you for your nice review.
We are so pleased to know that you enjoyed your stay at the Londra Palace.
Last summer, Venice had so many tourists, waves of persons from over the world and everything was difficult even take a walk or get a boat to leave the city.
There wasn't a corner of the city without tourists, we are afraid.

My husband and I spent 2 amazing nights at the hotel to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. The hotel is perfectly located by the vaporetto as well as by St. Mark's Cathedral. We stayed in a junior suite which had a large balcony as well as a comfortable bed! When we walked into our room we were greeted with a bottle of champagne and a note from the manager. We ate both lunch and dinner at the hotel's restaurant. The food was great, a little pricey but its quality and the view are well worth it! Breakfast was included and the spread of food was great from frag fruit, fresh pastries, great cappuccino, cheeses and salami. My husband needed a shirt pressed for the opera, we called the front desk and in 4 min someone knocked at our door and 15 min later the shirt was ready. The concierge was so helpful. In recommending restaurants and ordering a water taxi for us when we left to the airport. You can't go wrong staying here!!!

My family of 5 stayed at Hotel Londra Palace for 4 nights before a cruise departed this summer. We enjoyed it tremendously. That particular street is teaming with crowds of tourist all day long. But as soon as you walk into Londra’s classy quiet lobby you feel apart from the crowds. Our room had a balcony where we could admire the beautiful view. The staff was so helpful and polite. One added bonus we enjoyed is the restaurant with outdoor seating at the Hotel. When we wanted to take it easy we went down to the terrace for drinks or a snack. The food was very good quality and we could gaze at the hot sweaty tourists while we enjoyed a cool drink. Very fun!
