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
Such a hidden gem! This hotel is in the best location, right on the canal with gondola rides just round the corner. The hotel was clean and modern, the service was great and such a lovely concierge! It's a five minute walk to the St Marks Square, you won't go hungry as there are so much restaurants near the hotel and so so so much shopping! I'd stay here again :)
We have just returned from the most fantastic stay at Splendid Venice Hotel. We had a beautiful deluxe room with a fabulous view. The room was large and comfortable with lovely decor and a large bathroom. The hotel has a lovely roof terrace and great breakfast served in the dining room. The bar has wonderful views of the canal with gondolas going past. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend this hotel and to top it all the location is excellent, so central with easy water taxi links. The hotel also offers a complimentary boat trip to Verano. Thank you for a fabulous stay.
Great location and cute hotel. I am giving it 3 stars specifically because of where our room was located. When I checked in they recognized that I was an elite member had a wonderful gift and nice letter waiting for me. For the next two days we would hear random banging and couldn’t figure out where it was coming from then we realized it was because our room was right over the front door and it would slam shut when people would come in and out. I am quite surprised for an elite user they put me here.
