“Beatiful Hotel in a Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

this hotel was part of our Vacation Package scheduled thru Costco Travel. Our executive package included executive hotel rooms which meant breakfast and wifi included with our room. Our room was also in the top floor, had bed turn down service and biscuits and a bottle of prosseco was delivered to our room our first night. Simply amazing. Breakfast was similar to all other hotels around Italy but their glass ceiling covered patio meant we sat "outside" every morning without being exposed to morning dew or morning chilly temperatures. We never got around to trying the restaurant but the menu looked delicious.

I've stayed in three Star Hotel locations (Milan, Florence and Venice) and none disappoint. What I loved:
- Jewel-box rooms, that although on the small side, are so beautifully decorated you hardly notice
- Luxurious lounge to relax in with a picture-perfect view of the canal. Ask for Marco, who makes a lovely apero
- Outstanding location in the heart of old Venice. Wonderful restaurants right outside your door and in between St. Mark's Plaza and the Rialto bridge.

What might drive you slightly crazy was absolutely no internet to speak off. Not sure if their internet provider is always down, but if you are addicted think twice (or just try to enjoy your vacation!).

Budget 80 Euros to go from the train station to the hotel on motorboat, and 120 Euros to go to the train station.

A really great hotel that will guarantee a wonderful memory of a very special place.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have larger bathrooms than others...my friend's was super huge and I could bar...

Great location. Great rooms. Clean, modern and updated. Size of rooms for Venice was as expected, but bathroom was very comfortable and spacious ... Water taxi is very convenient for € 75. Service was exceptional, including check in with Stefano. My wife dropped a ring in the sink and staff resolved quickly. Overall a spectacular stay and we would stay here again.

Room Tip: I do not like old and ancient and these rooms were modern and to our standards.

Star hotels splendid was a great choice for our stay in Venice ... I would recommend it even to the most fussy traveller.
Rooms were modern and very neat. The size was the bathrooms was great as compared to the other hotels we stayed in while touring Italy. Location was excellent, stone throw from st marks basilica and a seven minute leisurely stroll to Rialto bridge
Daniel, the concierge is the hotel's best asset. His recommendations for lunch (pomodero Rosso) and dinner (cipriani hotel) were both excellent. He was extremely helpful, even arranged for us to share (taxi pool) a water taxi with another guest while leaving Venice, saving us and the other guests some precious Euros.
He gave us wi fi coupons so we could access the Internet freely.

Room Tip: Our room faced the back of the hotel, which seemed to be the service area. We saw the vegetable and...

Venice is an expensive place to visit and everything seems very touristy. We arrived by train. The price for a water taxi to the hotel costs 80 euros. Since we travelled light, so we opted for vapouretto which only costs 7 euros a ride. It turned out to be very okay. You just get off at Rialto station and walk about 5 minutes to the hotel. But you may wish to download a map beforehand if you don't have data plan for your mobile.
The hotel has a great location and you can walk to Piazza San Marco within 5 minutes. But the hotel is not very good otherwise. The corridor on my floor is narrow and there seems to be many many doors along the way making you feel like staying in a very crowded place. The room is pretty small (but still reasonable it you compare with rooms in Tokyo). But the bed is comfortable and toilet is spacious and clean. Front desk staff are not very friendly and does not seem to be eager to help. Breakfast offers very limited choice and it was the same for the few days we stayed and we very soon got bored with the breakfast.
One tip for you: there is a good laundromat just 3 minutes from the hotel. It only costs you 10+ euros for a basket. Just search for laudromat on google map and it's called Lavanderia Gabriella. They only open in the morning.

Me and cousins stayed at this hotel during our 2011 tour of Venice, Florence and Rome. As with everything in Venice, it was a bit tricky to find the place, but we managed to find it and it did not disappoint. The rooms were comfortable and it had all the facilities we required, except wi-fi, which would've been nice.
As it is located in the centre of town, everything in Venice was at equal walking distance, which is handy. The only real complaint I have was the breakfast, which was somewhat lacking. But then it might be a cultural difference, as breakfast in norway is a daily ritual of sorts.
But anyway, Starhotels Splendid Venice is a hotel I very much recommend.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights in June. It is in a great location, equidistant from Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco. Rooms are very clean with good facilities. However, our room was pretty small, with just enough space to move around the bed. Breakfast had a good selection of sweet things, bread and fruit but nothing hot, so not good for my English husband wanting a decent breakfast! The canal is directly outside the hotel and offers a romantic feel. We had no view out of our window, just a covered over ceiling above the breakfast room. Staff were helpful but not outstanding.
