“An unexpected pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the hotel in May, 2013, with my mother, my husband and my child (8). We took two rooms and the hotel put us right next to each other. Rooms were quite large (superior rooms) by European standards and immaculately clean. Great lighting and nice marble baths too. The hotel is quite modern in style and appears to be mostly filled with Americans, Brits, and Germans. Staff us charming and made excellent recommendations for dinner. Location is ideal, just 3 min from St. mark's square but down a quiet alley/canal. I'd return.

My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous 3 night stay at the Splendid Venice Hotel. We searched many hotels and were not disappointed by the Splendid. We arrived at the private landing stage by water taxi from Marco Polo Airport and would highly recommend this method of transport for a once in a life time experience. The hotel boasts an envious location nearby Rialto Bridge in one direction and St Marks Square in the other yet it sits in a quaint canal where you can often see gondalas passing quitely by. The hotel bedroom was spotlessly clean and luxurious.We dined twice in the hotels beautiful restaurant "Le Maschere" where we had fabulous venetian food, wine and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. No wonder this is one of the best restaurants in Venice. Overall a fantastic stay in romantic Venice, hopefully we will be back!

Located between St. Mark Square and the Rialto Bridge, this was the perfect location. They also have their own water taxi dock which was a godsend when we first arrived from the airport with our luggage.

Rooms are nicelt furnished/decorated and modern, large bathrooms, plenty of amenities.

Having breakfast as part of our plan was an easy way to start are day, as the choices included hot items, cereals, juices, fruits, breads, and more.

The included one hour gondola rowing lesson was a pleasant surprise as well.

My family and I stayed at Starhotels Splendid for 2 nights, and we were very happy to have chosen such a hotel. The hotel is centrally located that it only takes 5 minutes by foot to Rialto and 2 minutes to San Marco. Moreover, the hotel has its own private docking station allowing us to arrive directly to the hotel via a private water taxi from the airport. We were pleasantly surprised with the suites as they were very spacious and well appointed. The Front House Manager Diana, was very accommodating and the rest of the staff very efficient. The breakfast buffet was very good and well managed. The public areas were very clean and conducive for relaxing and entertaining guests. We could not ask for a better hotel to stay in Venice. We are definitely coming back.

Sincerely,

Juan Miguel Arcenas

Even after extensive googling beforehand, it took us nearly an hour to find this starting from the Rialto Vaporetto stop (about 600 metres). Tip...from the Rialto simply follow signs for San Marco, and reverse if starting from St M!

The hotel itself was very good, charming and efficient service, very good breakfast buffet, including hot items, bar and lounge was expensive...drink out is my advice. Our room overlooking the canal landing stage was excellent, very scenic, and given the location surprisingly quiet until about 0800 hrs. Location of this hotel is very central, with many eating/drinking opportunities nearby. for the less touristy places (relative term!) head past the Rialto towards the north, within 10 minutes it's a lot quieter and probably much better value.

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms with balconies overlooking the canal, ask! you may be lucky. Balconies are sm...

I have been to Venice numerous times and have had many unfortunate hotel stays. The Splendid was highly recommended by a friend and I was thrilled to have taken her advice.
The location was perfect, the staff very accommodating, the prices reasonable. The rooms and public areas clean, contemporary and extremely well done. It will certainly be the first of many stays there

My wife and I stayed at Starhotels Splendid Venice in 2012 May, and the whole stay was awesome! The service was great, the food was great and the best part was its location. I found the restaurant in the hotel as definitely one of the best restaurants in Venice. There was one lady at the front desk who was extremely helpful whenever we wanted any sort of directions or recommendations. Unfortunately I do not remember the name of that lady now.

Would love to stay here again if we visit Venezia in future :)
