“Everything on the doorstep!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

We managed to walk straight past hotel being so caught up in the beauty and charm of Venice. The hotel was very clean, close to St Marks square, the Rialto bridge and next to shops. We arranged a speed boat departure through the hotel, which was extremely prompt, and all of the staff were friendly, well presented and when out of their way to accommodate. Our hotel room was small, but had everything we needed, and our bathroom was as big as the room itself. Breakfast was the same every morning, but as the selection was vast, didn't feel like we were eating the same every day.

Spent a very sunny mid march, at this wonderful, perfectly located, spotlessly clean hotel. All the staff without exception were friendly and helpful. Also got an upgrade which made the stay a real wow experience.

Room Tip: room was not facing the canal, so no canal boat noise

Oh what a gorgeous hotel. And position position position!! Just a short hop to St Marks Square with one side of the hotel canal frontage...what a great first impression - and the other side has shops. I was in Venice Heaven. Our stay coincided with Carnivale which was magical. Although it was still cool there, it was dry and sunny which was lovely. Do beware though, it is so easy to get lost amongst the small alleyways as we did, however we did make our way back. Even the lobby area has a lot of charm in the bars and lounges. The staff were very helpful, the room clean and more than adequate. Although I only stayed a night, this hotel has made a lasting impression. It was my favourite in all of the hotels we stayed in in Italy. Oh yes, we had a little balcony just across the way from the lifts that we could sit out on and enjoy the charm, could see St Marks from it. Ahhh this is one place on my wish list to return to.

My sister and I stayed at Splendid Venice with our parents for their monumental 50th wedding anniversary celebration, being a travel agent myself I was very worried about choosing the wrong hotel! I was not disappointed, the hotel was in an excellent central location with it's own Gondola station, the rooms were really comfortable (though ours was very noisy with the windows open at night but that can't be helped).
The staff were the stars of the show and helped us with our 'surprises' for Mum and Dad of a special cake and afternoon tea with our smuggled balloons and candles!
Will definitely be sending my clients to this hotel and would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Try and get a room which doesn't overlook the street

Have never seen a cleaner more sparkling hotel. The location is perfect turn right to St Marks Square and left to the Rialto bridge. In the middle of the boutique shopping area. Friendly and helpful staff at all times. We had a lovely suite (we were upgraded!) overlooking a narrow side canal, wonderful beds, lovely bathroom with tub, robes and slippers. The price included breakfast, which was the normal buffet breakfast with enough choice to satisfy, hot food a little on the cool side but as expected. Restaurant food was excellent moderately priced, we ate every evening there. If there is a down side it is that we chose to get a private water taxi from the airport taking 30 - 40 mins costing 125 Euros each way. However,there is a very good public service but as we are not as young as we used to be we chose to make it as easy as possible. All in all really excellent (and we have stayed in some prestigeous hotels)

Room Tip: We had suite 274 overlooking the canal, the rooms seem to be in two building next to each other

We stayed at this lovely hotel for a special family celebration, my parents 50th wedding anniversary and everything was just great. Location is so central it was perfect for my parents (the hotel directions could be better as it is actually only a 3 minute walk from the Rialto vaparetto stop but the instructions suggest San Marco vaparetto is closer but although still less than a 10 minute walk it is harder to find from that side when you first arrive).

We arrived the day spring arrived in Venice and the sun didn't stop shining the whole time, the hotel reacted by opening their roof terrace immediately which was spotless and lovely - a welcome treat when in a city centre like this.

The staff were all excellent; welcoming and knowledgeable - a special mention must go to Marco on the bar who ensured the afternoon tea and celebration cake we had arranged as a surprise was perfect, decorating the table for us and arranged for his team to sing to them as the cake came out, which they loved. He delivered the perfect mix of excellent service, professional yet friendly; nothing was too much trouble, his ability to keep careful watch that we were okay without being intrusive did not go unnoticed - working in a hotel myself, I hope his hotel manager appreciates just how good at his job this man is!

If I had to find any minor negatives, the waiting staff at breakfast were quite slow to clear used bowls & plates and you had to ask if you wanted any additional tea or coffee, it wasn't offered, it wasn't bad, just not as quick as I would expect comparing it to the standards of service everywhere else in the hotel. Also the bedroom was very hot so we had to open the windows at night for air and being very central we were then disturbed by noise in the night quite a lot as our room faced the 'street' (our parents, in a canal view room were completely undisturbed!) but other than this I couldn't fault it and I have stayed in a lot of hotels and also work in them so I generally spot anything wrong very quickly!

Well done, 'Splendid Venice', you a doing a great job - you get my recommendation!

Room Tip: The only reason my sleep quality score is average is the noise disturbance with the windows open wit...

We enjoyed our stay at this Hotel, even though it coincided with some pretty poor weather. Despite this the great location, literally minutes from San Marco, enabled us to have a very enjoyable visit, during the Venice Festival.
