“Perfect location, great hotel”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Great location, right in the thick of things and yet a real haven during the hectic high season. We visited at probably one of the busiest times of the year (July). During peak people time as soon as you stepped out of the hotel doors you were swept along with the stream of tourists heading to the Rialto to the left or St Marks to the right. As soon as you stepped back in the hotel it was quiet, peaceful and relaxing.
The staff were all friendly and helpful. We realised on arrival that we had left something important on the plane and the staff were great at calling around and securing its safe return for us.

The one thing they need to work on is their checkout procedure and operations. With only 2 members of staff at the 12pm check out time it took us close to an hour and was total chaos. The vast majority of people (including us) had paid upfront and just needed to pay the local taxes. Surely there's a better way.....

This was an excellent hotel located in the heart of Venice. Very comfortable rooms and beds. The location is absolutely perfect. The lobby is great and inviting. Internet service is expensive and fair. The breakfast was good. I would stay here again because of the location. We felt like the entire city was at our doorstep and everything was within a 5 minute walk.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor and loved it

The hotel is beautiful with extremely well-appointed rooms. The food at the restaurant was fabulous, although pricey. Splendid Venice is perfectly located very convenient to St. Mark's and the Rialto Bridge, and even has a water taxi slip which made heading to the airport a breeze.

The downside to our visit was that we arrived late in the afternoon, and our room was not ready. We had taken an early train from Cinque Terre and were not please about the wait, especially when we had paid $600 Euro per night for the room. The second complaint was the WiFi wasn't free for guests. Again, for a luxury hotel, this should be standard.

Had the room been ready when we arrived, I would have given a higher rating.

Excellent location with easy access by water taxi to own landing stage. Ideally located for access to all areas of City. Really pleasant quiet location and yet in seconds you were walking through the streets of shops and restaurants to soon be at the Rialto Bridge or in San Marco Square.
Our room was upgraded to a canal view and was truly one of the best rooms we have stayed in. Standards are high in all respects. Our dinner in the restaurant was the best evening meal we had during our stay in Venice. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a luxury short break

Room Tip: If you can afford it go for the better room. A little bit of noise from water taxis if you have peop...

My sister and I stayed for three nights before a cruise and it was great. Water taxi took us right to the door, it wasn't cheap but it was worth it. We had a room with a view which was a view of an alley and if stuck my head out the window I could see a canal but it was fine. The room was small, but very clean and quiet, the beds super comfy. The location was perfect for walking everywhere. Would definitely stay there again if I'm ever in Venice. The rooftop bar was very nice and the downstairs lounge was also a perfect place to sit and look out over the canal. No free wifi which was the only thing that was a minor inconvenience. I highly recommend it.

Stayed at the Splendid in the San Marco district of Venice in October. The hotel is of a high standard and used by many international travellers due to its fantastic location. It is just 5 mins walk between both Saint Mark's square and the Rialto bridge. It also has its own canal side launch platform which is great for water taxis to the airport. We had a superior room with canal view. The room was fairly small but was of a high standard and the room and bathroom were very well cleaned by 11:00 every day. The bar area was pleasant, although sometimes we had to root out a barman to serve us. We booked the meet and greet service at the airport through the hotel - I wouldn't bother with this again. Yes we were met but most of the journey was in a car and then just a short water taxi which dropped us by the Rialto not the hotel. Although the Rialto was close, on our first time there we got a bit lost finding the hotel. On our return we just booked the water taxi from the hotel. This picked up up directly from the hotel jetty and we were at the airport in less that 30 minutes - warning once on the open water the taxis turn into speed boats so can be quite bumpy. It was also cheaper. Yes, there is a 7 minute walk from the airport dock to the terminal, but the walk way is well marked and has a weather cover so not a problem with wheeled cases. We only took breakfast in the hotel as we wanted to eat our evening meals in the city and savour the atmosphere, although the restaurant looked good and busy. There is also a roof top terrace which I guess is very nice in the warmer months. Overall, great stay if not cheap (Venice is expensive) and a fantastic location.

Excellent contemporary hotel within easy walking distance of the major tourist sights but adjacent to a quite small canal. Lovely lounge overlooking the canal for pre dinner Campari or Bellini cocktails!
All 6 districts of Venice can be explored from this hotel's central location. Highly recommended
