17th-century waterfront glamour in Venice
Set right on Riva Degli Schiavoni, Hotel Londra Palace’s neoclassical beauty threatens to outshine its surroundings — even though you have plenty to look at, thanks to the hotel’s striking views of the lagoon and San Giorgio Maggiore island.
The intimate hotel has just 53 rooms and suites, but it has style to spare. Common areas boast crisp and elegant decor (light-colored walls, wooden accents, plush chairs and, of course, sculpted chandeliers).
Guest rooms are outfitted with a more 19th-century aesthetic seen in the tapestry-draped windows and brocade-clad walls, antiques and Biedermeier-style furniture. Each room varies slightly to ensure a unique charm, but the bathrooms — bedecked in pink Carrara marble —consistently offer a generous amount of space.
