The Hotel Londra Palace stands along the Riva degli Schiavoni, just a few steps from St. Mark’s Square and the Doge’s Palace. The reflection of its white Istria stone façade shimmers in the Lagoon. Its 53 rooms, each of them unique, offer enchanting views of St. Mark’s Basin and the city. The style of the original Biedermeier furnishings creates an elegant, relaxed atmosphere, untouched by the spirit of time. The discovery of a rare, authentic Venice begins here.
The original core building dates back to 1853. Then it was called the Hotel d’Angleterre & Pension, and later the Londres. In 1865 the Beau Rivage was built in ‘neolombardesque’ style, connected to the Hotel d’Angleterre by an adjoining structure. The hotel’s present appearance is the result of the roof being raised during the 1950s and the more recent renovations of the façade and internal public areas. It was given the name ‘Londra Palace’ in the seventies. One of the hotel’s most famous guests was the Russian composer Petr Il’lc Tchaikovsky who stayed here in December 1877. In room 106 he composed the first three movements of Symphony No. 4, originally entitled ‘Do Leoni’. Gabriele D’Annunzio stayed here in 1887, when he attended the unveiling of the monument built in front of the hotel in honour of King Vittorio Emanuele II. Other important names include Jorge Luis Borges and Iosif Brodskij, recipient of the Nobel Prize for literature.
The Hotel Londra Palace has a characteristic trait. Each of its 53 rooms is different from the others. All offer hospitality combining the charm of a historic Hotel, thanks to the style of the Biedermeier furnishings and the fabric-covered walls, with the comfort and technology of modern life, including satellite TV, wireless Internet connection, mini bar. Rooms are divided into three categories according to their size and view, overlooking the city or the Lagoon.
Bringing to life the magic and thrill that only Venice can give. This is the Hotel Londra Palace‘s forte.
The 100 windows which overlook the lagoon offer incomparable sunrises and sunsets but the view over the rooftops and bell towers offered by the classic rooms is also enchanting.
The cuisine of the Do Leoni Restaurant, which enhances the sights and sounds of the lagoon, and the original cocktails of our Londrabar add the finishing touches to your stay.
