This historic hotel prides itself on having, over its life of 150 years, received artists and celebrities such as Tchaikovsky, D'Annunzio and Borges, who were captivated by the Londra Palace and its dream location. Piazza San Marco is a stone’s throw away, as are the vaporetti and gondolas to explore the canals. One hundred windows look out over the San Marco Basin and the Lagoon, however the views over the roofs and church towers from the other side of the building are no less beautiful. Biedermeier-style furniture, tapestries and brocades adorn the elegantly decorated rooms, and the restaurant adds a creative touch to the great classic dishes of Venetian cuisine.
This historic hotel has welcomed many artists and famous names for over 160 years, including Tchaikovsky, D’Annunzio, Borges, and Brodsky. All were won over by the atmosphere; the perfect location on the Riva degli Schiavoni, a very short distance from the Piazza San Marco; the Bridge of Sighs; and all of La Serenissima's iconic spots, as well as its more authentic and lesser-known districts. The Londra Palace has 53 rooms which are all completely different, with Biedermeier-style furniture, upholstery, and precious brocade, as well as marble bathrooms. One hundred windows look out onto the lagoon, offering an unparalleled display at every sunrise and sunset. The classic rooms also provide an unobstructed view of the rooftops and steeples of the town.
