Starhotels Splendid Venice
Ranked #65 of 387 Hotels in Venice
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2017

The name really says it all, absolutely "spendid". Splendid Venice is a luxury boutique type hotel in Venice city center.
We arrived by boat from the airport (which is also on the water...arrive by plane, depart by boat...awesome!!). The staff were quick to assist us with our luggage and with getting us checked in, and then to our room. Even though my friend and I did not speak Italian, we had no problems with checking in as all of the staff we encountered spoke English.
We had a single room with one full /queen bed; a corner chair and a full-size bathroom. The hotel and room reflected a classic Venetian character and had a elegant, yet comfortable, feel. Our room did have a good view of a canal.

We were approximately 5 minutes (by foot) from San Marco Square and the Rialto Bridge; the hotel is also connected with the Vaporetto water bus stop “Rialto”.

Highly recommend visiting Piazza San Marco, known in English as St Mark's Square. It is the main public square of Venice, where it is generally known just as la Piazza. St. Mark's Square is dominated by the great church of St Mark (don't miss seeing the inside of the church). The sqaure also consists of many cafe's and shops; of particular not is Caffé Florian. Caffé Florian is an extremely charming cafe with many richly decorated rooms in different styles. It is the perfect place to enjoy an espresso (or hot chocolate with whipped cream) while sitting at a little table in the heart of Venice, just a few steps from the Grand Canal.

I could go on and on, but will end by saying that this was an AMAZING trip from start to finish.

Room Tip: If two beds are needed, request that when making your reservations.

Starhotels Splendid Venice has excellent front desk service, great rooms, and a convenient location! Water taxis and gondolas pull right up to the hotel. We called ahead of our arrival, and front desk staff were informative and helpful. When weather related delays caused us to miss a day-and-one-half of our three-day stay, they gave us great tips to make the most of our short stay.

We reserved through Costco. Their buying power secures great rates, and their agents are knowledgeable and helpful.

Breakfast is quite good. Breakfast room has a working, retractable glass roof!

Starhotels Splendid Venice is a picturesque hotel in a picturesque city. Wish we could have stayed longer.

This hotel is probably one of the best in Venice. The staff at the hotel were very friendly, the hotel porters were very helpful and professional and the dining staff were always quick and attentive. The rooms were very nicely decorated with everything you could possibly want for your stay (Smart TV, armchairs, plug sockets for U.K. plugs and USB, free wi-fi, tea and coffee, minibar and fridge with snacks at a cost, safe, wardrobe with coat hangers, toiletries, the lot). Our bed and pillows were very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, lots to choose from such as croissants, bread rolls, sausages and bacon, yoghurts, cold meat and cheeses, cereals, juice and hot drinks. One thing not to be missed is the roof terrace which has great views out over the rooftops of Venice all day and there is a bar up there that is open from 7pm onwards (although the prices aren't cheap). The location of the hotel itself is also absolutely fantastic, halfway between Rialto Bridge and St Mark's square - and only 5 minutes from both. Checking out is 12pm and the hotel will happily look after your luggage if you ask them to. I would very happily stay here again and would definitely recommend it.

From the minute we arrived, we took one look and decided that staying in the Splendid was clearly the beginning of a magical and memorable trip. We picked the hotel because of it's ideal location, near enough to San Marco square and the Rialto Bridge and yet far-enough to still maintain an atmosphere of comfort for its guests. Even before we arrived, The Splendid concierge team proved to be top notch. I had emailed them from the States to arrange an airport pick up to the hotel and we were instantly greeted at the airport. When our boat pulled right in to the hotel's water entrance with all its Italian hospitality and charm--we knew we made the right choice in hotels.

Once we arrived, the check-in was a breeze, and we were escorted to our lovely room (310).

The lobby area is superb, classic-contemporary decor with furniture that will inspire you--lots of wood and brass! The lounge bar area in the lobby is ideal for relaxing or lazily watching gondolas pass-on by while enjoying a glass of wine or a Spritz (a local favorite.) Their gorgeous rooftop terrace is marvelous, sophisticated and has sweeping views of Venice.

Special thanks to two of Splendid's staffers: Alexis and Ricardo. These two gentlemen are wonderful; their attention to detail and professionalism just went above and beyond. Alexis works the canal-level bar in the lobby by day and the Terrace by night and Ricardo is concierge who works in the Le Maschere.

The Maschere, is their authentic restaurant, with an elegant dinner atmosphere! Many dishes to choose from but the fish is a overwhelmingly recommended winner. With a retractable roof it is situated under a glassed-over courtyard; the entire cuisine is outstanding! During breakfast we had our choice of either a continental buffet or a-la-carte menu.

Our room was great with views facing toward the canal; elegantly furnished with marble-clad bathroom and ample space to dress. However, it is not recommended to bring too many suitcases as there is not a lot of storage space or closets. The A/C was good, thankfully! As it was a very hot July outside and housekeeping kept the place all very clean.

In Venice, the streets are very small and narrow; they twist around each other and are lined with shops, cafes, trattorias and piazzas that are packed with tourist during the day but are nearly empty and easily accessible during evening. Best time to take a stroll! watch the sun set over the Venice skyline and choose from the many food options available--plus there are transportation hubs nearby the hotel which will make your "discovering Venice excursions" very convenient. There is no Currency exchange in the hotel but at St. Mark’s Square there are exchange locations everywhere. You will need your passport to exchange currency.

Thank you again to the Splendid for making our trip a unique experience.

This not so small hotel is in the heart of Venice. No more than 4 small blocks from Piazza San Marco.
The rooms were on the small side but so luxurious and nicely decorated.
The bathrooms are all marble.
We had a very nice view on to a canal and a house with a garden.
It did get a bit noisy in the morning when the "garbage boat" came, but we took it as part of the folclore.
The restaurant is beautiful with a a retractable roof plus breakfast was good. It had good reviews on TripAdvisor so we decided to have dinner here as well.

This hotel is wonderful. Close to everything. The staff is outstanding, really patient and helpful. Everything is clean. AC works great. Hint: from the airport, spend the money for a private boat. It is fast and literally docks at the hotel lobby. We took the public boat from the airport and it was over an hour, very hot and the walk to the hotel from the public dock was crowded. Splendid Hotel is great, Staff is superior!
