Hotel Londra Palace is a romantic waterfront hotel situated across from Palladio's 16th-century San Giorgio Maggiore Church in Venice. Piazza San Marco and Palazzo Ducale are nearby. Guests can enjoy nearby sailing or boat tours.
Occupying 3 19th-century buildings, this romantic hotel overlooks the Venetian Lagoon. Rocco Magnoli, architect of Versace's boutiques, oversaw the hotel's extensive 1999 renovation. The lobby is appointed with ornamental columns and a mix of traditional and contemporary Venetian glass. The hotel's Ristorante Do Leoni serves sophisticated Venetian cuisine in a handsome room with a stone-mosaic floor and a wall of windows overlooking the lagoon. The outdoor waterfront terrace is popular in summer, and the expertly mixed house cocktails are well worth sampling. The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast buffet daily.
The 5-story Hotel Londra Palace has 53 air-conditioned guestrooms with high-ceilings. Rooms feature silk-covered walls, 19th-century Biedermeier furniture, and gilt-framed original oil paintings.

Pink marble bathrooms provide phones, bathrobes, and slippers, as well as bidets, makeup/shaving mirrors, and heated towel racks. Most rooms offer lagoon views. Some rooms also have balconies.
