“Splendid justifies the name”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The hotel is well located with very friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent. We had a room above the entrance which turned out to be very noisy because of the bridge and little plaza nearby. People made a row till after 3 a.m. The staff at the reception was very helpful and upgraded us to a room on the side canal. This was much quieter and very nice. Has nice touches like tea making facility, very comfortable beds. Very good restaurant tips from the concierge. All in all it made it a lovely stay in Venice and we can recommend the hotel whole heartidly.

Thank you to the Splendid Hotel for a memorable trip to Venice. We were upgraded to a superior room with a canal view. The room itself was lovely-updated decor, lovely linen and a spotless white marble bathroom with fluffy gowns and slippers.
The check in lady Maria was friendly and had our bags whisked off by Claudio until our room was ready as we had arrived early.
The location was fabulous-a short walk from the Rialto where our shared taxi had dropped us off.
Breakfast was was generous with great coffee and steamed milk and freshly baked pastries as well as fruit and cereal.
Don't think twice-book this hotel, you will not be disappointed.
There are loads of fabulous places to eat within a short walking distance, just stroll down the alleyways and take your pick.
Before dinner pop into any of the local bars for a Spritz with Campari and an olive-delicious!
We loved the Vongele pasta so much we had it both nights for dinner.
We booked through lastminute.com and it was a great deal for such a fabulous hotel.
Venice is such a lovely city-just walk around and soak up the sights and sounds.

We recently came back from a short break at the Splendid Hotel in Venice and can not praise it enough. We had a canal view which which was adequate in size for a short break. The food in the hotel restaurant was amazing, if a little expensive. It is great to get lost in Venice as you can always find your way back to St Marks or the Rialto. Our Water Taxi would not drop us off or pick us up outside this hotel due to high tides and low bridges, we were dropped off at the Rialto Bridge but we found the hotel really easily. Thank you to all the staff who were always so helpful and polite to us during our stay.

In fact I think that this hotel is the perfect choice because of its wonderful location and the upscale staff treatment. It is very close to piazza San marco and surrounded by a lot of shops and restaurants. Do not waste your time searching for other hotels just book it.

Room Tip: Superior canal view.

I appreciate that alot of people might like the old style and charm of staying in a hotel that may be 250 years old but I was after a little luxury that was convenient to Rialto Bridge and St Marks square and I found it.
The Starhotels Splendid Venice was everything and much more.
I booked online and reserved a canal room. I think it may have been superior but it wasnt a suite but it felt like it. It was on the 1st floor from memory and not far from the lifts and we walked up a small stairway to our door which made it even more private and special.
The room was quite large with plenty of room to move around in and spend some time in if need be. The bathroom was very large with a full bath and separate shower and vanity/toilet etc. plenty of wardrobe space and drawers if you were here for a while.
The breakfast was very good and the coffee was hard to beat.
The staff in the bars, restaurants and front office were very easy to speak to and get anything you require.
This hotel is a must and has its own private wharf that you can get a water taxi to or from and even enjoy a gondola ride.
They say that to experience the true Venice is to get lost, well we did a few times and it wass fun to do. Although the hotel is relatively easy to find, I still got lost and could not find it every time we ventured out and about.
You'll see why if you stay but it was still fun even after getting lost after 3 days.
The name says it all....SPLENDID!!

Room Tip: Try for a canal room as it was amazing though the view was only small. Be aware that your key car...

We stayed here after a cruise for two nights in November 2012. Amazing location, two blocks from Piazza San Marco and 3 blocks from the Rialto. We stayed on the 5th floor in a room for three that was positively enormous by European standards. great bathroom--marble everywhere, with nice toiletries and huge towels. Lots of hot water. If the windows are open, the canals can be noisy, but heck, you're on the water. there is a cute little boat dock and a little bridge right outside the lobby door, which is not usable during high tides in the fall flooding season. The restaurant is amazing, though not cheap. If you have breakfast included in your package, the juices and rolls are terrific, but the eggs and bacon are sub-par. The cheeses and salamis are very tasty. There is free wifi in the lobby, which can be a little tempermental to sign in to, but is relatively speedy.
would stay here again in a heartbeat.

chose this hotel as it was recommended by travelers on various sites. around a 2 minute walk from St Marks Sq perfect base.
Hotel rooms not huge but ideal for a city break, beautifully decorated and extremely clean.
We had noted on our booking it was our honeymoon so when we arrived we were upgraded without a prompt (for free), the hotel had left a note congratulating us on our wedding which was accompanied by a box of chocolates. When checking out other guests checking in were also upgraded so I believe the hotel tries to accommodate all guests as much as possible
