Between Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge, this canalside spot has a long and distinguished history of welcoming guests. It began life as a 16th-century inn and went through several incarnations before being fully renovated in 2007. It artfully blends ancient architecture and contemporary furnishings in the middle of Venice. At the center of the hotel is the Campiello, a Venetian-style courtyard covered by a glass roof, which bathes the restaurant in natural light. The bar is decorated in plush fabrics, and there’s a handsome velvet-lined library and media room.
Bed & Bath
The 165 rooms — including 63 Deluxe and 80 Superior Suites — are all elegantly decorated in soothing neutral tones, with light oak parquet floors, sumptous drapes and blond wood furnishings. They all come with soft goosedown “Starbeds” and are well soundproofed against any street noise, to ensure a good night’s sleep. All the sparkling white marble bathrooms have powerful rainfall showers and house brand lotions and potions.
The American-style buffet breakfast will set you up for the day. Take a sightseeing break for afternoon tea served in the bar and tuck into delicious sandwiches and pastries. In the evening the chef at Le Maschere restaurant creates traditional Venetian dishes, such as fritto misto and beef carpaccio with rucolo and parmesan. Enjoy aperitivi in the bar, lounging on a velvet sofa as gondolas drift past the windows, and don’t miss the signature cocktail — a mix of gin, aperol, vermouth and vodka topped with grapefruit juice — and showstopping views of the city from the fifth-floor Solana bar.
How to Get There
Freshly arrived in Splendid Venice. My prima review on Tripadvisor and our long weekend started here with a lovely room, clean nice bathroom and well served. Breakfast was great and a perfect start of the day!
We booked this hotel at the last minute after having a bad experience at a previous hotel. The location of the hotel was great for us, close to restaurants, sights of Venice and bars. After long days of walking around Venice exploring, it was nice to come back to a clean, bright and comfortable room. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. The hotel is on quite a busy street, however we were on the second floor and never had a problem with noise or sleeping at night.
Splendid Hotel in Venice is wonderful: beautiful, great central location, wonderful food, antiques, and attentive service! Some rooms were smaller than others, but our was a good size for the city. The bathroom was lovely.
This review is long overdue. We stayed as a family several years ago and we ended up needing assistance from the hotel staff in an unusual circumstance.. Salvadore and several others at the hotel were fantastic. They really helped us out and moved our room and were fantastic in every way. Without getting in to the details, they were professional and just incredibly responsive to a situation that needed attention. I cant say enough good things about them. There was a very nice young lady at the desk that was also great.
Also as a side note the food is first class. I would stay here again without hesitation.Just nice thoughtful people and the hotel is just fantastic and well located.
Thank you Salvatore, from me and my family.
Hotel great location, room nice small but has all amenities. Asked for an iron was told they are not allowed to supply an iron and you can only use hotel laundry service! I would not return to this hotel due to the service from the staff unfriendly and not very helpful or welcoming. Asked for some milk one evening and was handed it at the door without a word shame that a hotel has such a beautiful location on the canal but your overall experience is ruined by the staff that work there. When I return to Venice I wouldn’t return to this hotel.
