A wall of windows soaks up extraordinary, sweeping views of the lagoon and the island of San Giorgio, enjoyed from many of the individually decorated guest rooms and suites, which have fine fabric, damask drapes, Biedermeier furniture, and Venetian glass. The downstairs restaurant is all glass, light, and water views, as are some of the neoclassical public rooms, with splashes of blue-and-green glass suggesting the sea. The vista must have been pleasing to Tchaikovsky,
who wrote his Fourth Symphony here in 1877. The staff is top-notch, as are the restaurant and the bar.

We spent four wonderful nights in this lovely hotel, situated perfectly a few minutes walk from San Marco Square. Our junior suite overlooking the lagoon was like a little jewel box. Several times each day we would step out onto our small balcony to gaze across to the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, over to Santa Maria della Salute, or down to the throngs of tourists marching behind tour group leaders with umbrellas held high. Dinner and buffet
breakfast in Do Leoni, the hotel's restaurant, were quite good, with both indoor and outdoor seating. Staff were gracious and helpful. Housekeeping was excellent. Hotel Londra Palace captures the romance of Venice. We highly recommend it.

Stay there only if you have a front view. If you do, you will have one of the most memorable hotel stays in your life. Expensive, but very much worth it. Save money somewhere else on your trip. Class, location, comfort.

Venice is the most expensive city in the world, but the view is beautiful. I upgraded to a canal view room for an extra 100 Euro a night. The view was worth it. The breakfast is excellent for Italian standards. Excellent location.
