“Pefect choice and lovely suits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Can't particularly fault this hotel - from the moment you pull up in front of it in a water taxi, the service is impeccible. All the staff are remarkably friendly, the attention to detail is impressive and every guest is made to feel like a king.

Location is perfect, breakfast was good and the conciege was incredibly helpful.

We stayed in the Tchaikovsky suite, which had some nice touches (including original hand-written scores from Tchaikovsky on the wall from the time he was writing in this hotel). The views into the basin are just gorgeous, the room was light and airy and decor perfect.

Personally, I think it's nicer than the Danielli - the rooms are more spacious and service more friendly. If the Londra could match the Danielli's rooftop garden and reception area, it would be the pinnicle of hotels in Venice for me.

Room Tip: Definitely worth the upgrade to a suite. If you like historic features, aim for the Tchaikovsky sui...

We booked the Londra Palace for a 2 night stay as we had got engaged over dinner there 6 years ago. The Hotel itself was excellent with a comfortable room but the food was not what we had had previously. It seems to be using its lagoon frontage and central location to bump up prices. Breakfast was average but the dinner was truly overpriced and very disappointing in terms of quality and quantity of food and tastes. Think we would stay at The Danieli again next time.

Room Tip: Lagoon view rooms will be stunning but at a premium. Our was at the back but still had a nice view o...

Dear Sir and Madam,

thank you for choosing the Londra Palace again.
We are very sorry to read about your disappointing experience at our Restaurant
Our Chef is the same as your previous stay and we have to say that during this six years he didn't stand still waiting for clients just coming for the Hotel central location, but his and his Team growth has been constant and awarded by Michelin Guide, Gambero Rosso guide, Relais & Chateaux Gourmet Festivals when he cooked with Michelin- stars Chefs with great success.
As far as the prices are concerned, we grant reductions on Food & Beverage to Hotel guests and we have light menus (2 or 3 courses) with seasonal products and wine included at reasonable costs. The wine ("Venitian wood") is produced for us by one of the most important wineries in the Amarone region.
We regret very much we didn't meet your expectations.

Yours sincerely,

Stefania Vaccari

This hotel has nice rooms and great views if facing the water. The concierge at the hotel was fabulous and helped with everything i needed. The breakfast was nice but i was unimpressed with the lobby area. Not a place that people hang out at least not while we were there.

Room Tip: i had a room at the end of hall which was close to the housekeeping door. not ideal as we heard them...

We stayed here on our first trip to Venice, and I would absolutely recommend this hotel to any first time travelers.

Location
Beautiful location right on the Grand Canal. There's a nice broad walkway in front of the hotel, so it doesn't actually abut the canal, which is a good thing. It's about a 5 minute walk to St Mark's square and about a 15 minute walk to the Rialto bridge. The nice thing about this hotel is that you're close to everything, but you're not right in the middle of all the hubbub.

Just an FYI though. The hotel is nowhere near the train station, and I would even want to try the walk with luggage. It's not the distance really, it's more of the winding nature of venetian streets and all the canals/bridges you'll have to cross. You will need to take a water taxi (which can be pricey).

Rooms
Our room had a king sized bed, which is not something easy to find in Venice (or Europe in general). Everything was well appointed and felt very venetian. Bathroom was clean, marble clad, and had great water pressure. Our room opened to the back of the hotel, so we didn't get a canal view, but we did get a charming view of the city. Very happy with the room.

Service
Very friendly staff. No issues at check in or check out. Housekeeping was on the ball. Wait staff at breakfast was attentive. Kudos all around.

We were upgraded to a room with a view of the canal. Room was beautiful and large. Breakfast was good, set in an elegantly charming room. Excellent location. Would highly recommend staying here and I'd definitely would go back. I feel so spoiled :-)

We stayed at the Londra Palace as part of a week long trip through Italy to celebrate our silver anniversary. Venice was the last stop on our trip and to that point we had stayed in some excellent hotels and the "L P" kept the standard high. We had a lagoon view room (214) which was well stocked with some beautiful furnishings and the facilities were excellent although there was no tea or coffee making facilities they could have been provided if we had requested them.

It isn't cheap but you do get what you pay for, the breakfast layout is superb. We didn't have an evening meal there as we had too much exploring of Venice to complete so ate on the hoof but the restaurant appearance was elegant and looking at the menu it wasn't set up to disappoint.

One high point was the concierge (apologies for forgetting his name), as it was our first visit we were seeking advice about Murano, gondola's, the water taxi's and in every event he provided us with brilliant advise saving us time and money along with maps to helps us navigate the area.

Venice itself I wasn't too taken with (controversial !!!) but if we were ever to return I would make straight for the Londra Palace as with it's high standards, its location next to St Marks square is perfect and the proximity of the water taxi's / buses make it an ideal base for travellers of all ages.

Room Tip: You must request a lagoon view room as it is not only a great view but you also get to see visitors...

Hotel Londra Palace meets or exceeds every expectation. We had fantastic canal views. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Rooms were well appointed and clean. The location could simply not be more ideal. The restaurant was excellent and the provided breakfast was exceptional. We had adjoining (but not interconnecting) rooms with our teenage kids - but that worked out just fine. We will definitely stay here again upon returning to Venice.
