In Venice, the Hotel Londra Palace combines the charm and luxury of a historic hotel and
comfort at the height of the most modern hotels. With its 100 windows overlooking the San Marco Basin, for over 165 years - its original nucleus dates back to 1853 - it is the chosen meeting place for artists, men of culture, travelers and tourists who love authentic places, not conformed to the spirit weather.
Famous names such as the Russian composer Petr Il’Ic have stayed in his rooms
Tchaikovsky, who in December 1877 composed the first three movements in room 106 of the Symphony No. 4, originally entitled "Do Leoni". Even the poet and playwright Gabriele D’Annunzio, the Argentine writer and poet Jorge Luis Borges and the Russian poet essayist Nobel Prize in Literature Iosif Brodsky was hosted here.
Staying at the Londra Palace means living the full privilege of being in Venice:
the Hotel rises in fact on the Riva degli Schiavoni a few steps from Piazza San Marco, from the "Ponte dei Sospiri" and from all the other symbolic places of the Serenissima, but also from its most secret and authentic corners.
They are the profound bond with the history of the city and the elegant and impeccable welcome that has qualified its membership in Relais & Châteaux since 2013, the association of over 580 hotels and restaurants around the world united by a genuine passion for hospitality .
In November 2014 Relais & Châteaux presented a Manifesto to UNESCO, which confirms the commitment to protect cultural and gastronomic diversity. In line with
these principles, the Do Leoni Restaurant of the Hotel Londra Palace is the stage where the chef Loris Indri, inspired by the first fruits of the Rialto market day, revisits the flavors of the lagoon with creativity.
The team of the Hotel Londra Palace works every day to offer guests “a home
away from home ”where you can discover the history, flavors and art de vivre of Venice: a mission carried out with a contagious passion, which in 2019 was awarded with the prestigious Relais & Chateaux Welcome Trophy
