Insider's View

The Londra bar is located directly on the Riva degli Schiavoni. This is the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by with a drink in hand.

Footsteps away from the Grand Canal, this hotel is right in the thick of it and in high season it can appear very crowded right outside.

Walk right out your front door and in just few steps you will reach the sights that make Venice world renowned. Open your window and watch the life of Venice pass by from the vaporetti to the gondolas and the mix of people from across the world that you will only find in Venice.

Londra Palace is a really lovely hotel with very welcoming and warm staff. Recently renovated, the public areas of the hotel which consist of a lobby, bar and restaurant are elegantly decorated with stunning hand blown glass sculptures and light fittings. I stayed in one of the Junior Suites with lagoon view, which was beautiful. It's definately worth uprading to a lagoon view as you really feel like you are right in the heart of the action.

My favourite part of the hotel is the secret terrace on the roof - accessible only by permission, this terrace offers the most stunning rooftop views. Its a really small space, so perfect for romantic drinks or a small dinner with friends. The hotels restaurant has a terrace on the pavement, so at breakfast you can watch as the city wakes up and starts the preparations for the day.
