Good location, easily accessible by Water Taxi and by Water bus( need to walk 2 mins from Rialto station). Decent rooms, in heart of venice, just near grand canal. Friendly staff. Little expensive. Overall good hotel. Only minus is not well laid out breakfast. Just ok.

Room Tip: No need to take canal facing room is its not the grand canal but a small canal.

Stayed here for a couple of days as part of our honeymoon tour of Italy. This hotel definitely has several plus points - its accessible(by land and water,which is saying a lot in Venice), the rooms are much larger than expected(which is also saying a lot in Venice) and afford some gorgeous, private views of the canal city, all attractions are a short walk away(St marco square and railto bridge). However, service is a minus point. The staff was not polite. Breakfast,though a free inclusion in the room fare, was all cold and also a bit strange. The breakfast menu was very small and dissappointing to say the least(maybe it was Italy and so I expected a better gastronomic experience, but cold bread and cold cake piece with cold tea, seriously Star???)
Reception is separate from the main building so there is a kind of thoroughfare in the sitting area, making it noisy and disturbing.
Having said this, it is still a very convenient and overall nice place to stay in. Location does make up for other areas where the hotel is wanting. Rooms are spacious, bright , modern and beautiful. All in all very good value for money.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful three day stay at this hotel situated between Rialto bridge and San Marco Piazza, a short stroll away. From the outside it looks unremarkable, and easy to walk past without noticing. We were upgraded to a suite which was decorated in old Venetian style, very comfortable and spacious. Loved the contemporary decor in the rest of the hotel. We left the windows open most of the time, the sounds from the alleyways and canals echoing up was delightful, and I ususally like silence. The rooms on the whole are fairly small - the first room we were shown was beautiful although fairly small, however I appreciate this is common in Venice. The rooms and public areas are beautifully decorated with luxury fittings and lots of attention to detail and exceptionally clean and well maintained. Very comfortable bed. We didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening but it looked lovely, breakfast was fine. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and special mention to manager, Giacomo who was exceptionally helpful. This is the most expensive hotel we have stayed in but worth it for a special occasion for us, we have lots of happy memories and would highly recommend. I can't imagine there is anywhere else as lovely to enjoy Venice at its best. Eating out was a bit hit and miss. There is a tiny restaurant, situated just behind the hotel, the Amima Bella Trattoria which was lovely for a quiet evening meal and we recommend going off the beaten track for the best food in our experience.

My boyfriend and I went to Venice for my 30th birthday for 4 nights. After speaking to the rep at citalia when booking our trip he gave an honest account of all the hotels. We wanted somewhere clean modern and in a central location preferably accessible via gondola. The star splendid did not disappoint! It was a clean modern hotel with a touch of Venetian class. Our room was fantastic and we had a canal view ( all be it a side canal it still oozed character and charm) the location was excellent, minutes from the Rialto bridge and st Marcos square.
We had a lovely room and when we asked to be moved due to some building work on our floor they were quick to accommodate.
the bar area was lovey as was the restaurant under a central glass roof however the food and drink were very expensive.
We would defiantly stay there again as it really made the trip a special one.

Room Tip: The canal view was a very expensive extra, we booked a normal room and just wrote an email to the ma...

Just back from 4 night city break in Venice, booked this hotel via Expedia based on reviews and location and was not disappointed. In fact the hotel surpassed my expectations - We were given a free room upgrade to a junior suite on arrival, a fantastic start to a special birthday treat for my wife. Hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay, the hotel was ideally located for all the main attractions being almost exactly a 5 minute easy stroll to both St Mark's Square in one direction and the Rialto Bridge in the other. The suite was very nice and had all the amenities required - a fantastic bathroom (slight issue with the shower which was a little low on pressure at times but was always nice and warm). The bed was really comfortable, one of the best I've ever slept in. The buffet breakfast was perfect with a a good selection of hot and cold choices, something for everyone. We also booked a table at the hotel restaurant 'La Maschere' one evening and again was delighted with the both the food and service - a special mention for the Spaghetti a la Frutti de Mare, which was delicious.
All in all a deserved 5 star review, would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for a stay in Venice

Room Tip: Remember the city tax of 4 euros per person per night payable on departure (same charge at all hotel...

Beautiful decor. I was afraid in Venice ( inside the island) the Hotels will be old and depressing.
This hotel is beautiful, classy, modern bathroom, comfortable spacious and quiet room.
Coffee machine in room. It's not cheap but it's worth it! the only thing I did not like is that the Internet connection is extra money!
A few steps of San Marco plaza! The location is unbeatable!

Room Tip: Not overlooking anything. A good value.
