Luxurious hotel right on the lagoon and just a short walk to San Marco Square and all the shops and monuments. Beautiful rooms, nice staff and a lovely breakfast. This is a 5 star hotel and comes with the attendant price tag.
We stayed at the Hotel Londra Palace over two night. The hotel was an ideal location for us. Close to St. Mark's square. The staff were welcoming and professional. The junior suite that we stayed in was comfortable and beautiful, with great character. The next...More

We just had a four night stay in this beautiful and charming hotel. On arrival, got a free upgrade to a lagoon view room (506) which had a wonderful upstairs bathroom with fabulous rain shower and a large sleeping area with a very comfortable bed...More
We are loving our stay. Great location... about a half a block to Piazza San Marco and we are extremely comfortable! Large rooms with incredible showers! We could not ask for more from our stay! We hope to return.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
We stayed in Room 106, the Tchaikovsky Suite, where Tchaikovsky lived for 4 years and wrote his fourth symphony. It was very large — almost a double room — and faced the lagoon. I agree with the other reviewers that you’ll... More
We stayed in Room 106, the Tchaikovsky Suite, where Tchaikovsky lived for 4 years and wrote his fourth symphony. It was very large — almost a double room — and faced the lagoon. I agree with the other reviewers that you’ll love this hotel, regardless of the room you choose.
I don't know about Christmastime, since we went to Venice in late March. However, it was holy week, just before Easter, which might be a useful indicator. Stores and restaurants were open, as were the attractions.
