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.

Londra Palace is a classic Venetian hotel right in the heart of the city just steps from St Mark's Square. Many of the rooms face the Grand Canal and offer fantastic views of this bustling city. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and it was so nice to wake up to views of the boats in the canal. The staff are super friendly and helpful and nothing seems too much trouble for everyone at Londra Palace. They are genuinely excited to meet you! Breakfast was fantastic and the hotel also offers an outdoor patio (on the Grand Canal) for breakfast, lunch and drinks. All in all, Londra Palace is a great option for couples and families that are looking for a hotel right in the centre of the city with traditional design and fantastic service.

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. Do not hesitate to ask the concierge to point you in the direction of the best restaurants and hidden gems.

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.
