The first and most important asset of the hotel is the location. It is midway between Rialto bridge and Piazza San Marco, thus giving the opportunity to hit the main tourist attractions on foot. The room was nice, it had the kind of decor you expect from a hotel in Venice (meaning it's not very modern, or minimal), and although this wasn't to my true liking, it was very clean, had a nice view over a quiet canal and had nothing to complain about. Breakfast was served in a very nice dining room, and all the public areas of the hotel are very tastefully decorated.
Don't hesitate to book it, you won't be disappointed!

Location is wonderful. A bit of a pain to get to, but once we were here it was a great central location. There many shops and restaurants in the area. My teenage daughters enjoyed being able to explore the shops on their own. We often found ourselves in the vincinity of the hotel during our explorations, so it was nice to be able to use the bathroom, drop off packages ,change shoes or just relax for a half hour, before heading back out.
The rooms were very clean and quiet. Our room was right out side the elevator on the third floor. We never heard anyone in the halls, nor did we hear any noise from outside. The beds were extremely comfortable.

The hotel staff were wonderful, especially Alex at the front desk. He arranged a water taxi for us to go to Murano at no charge, as well as one to take us to the cruise terminal. The latter was a godsend (it met us right at the hotel), since we had 4 adults (one senior) , 2 teens and a child plus luggage. Negotiating the streets to catch the water bus would have been horrible, and the extra cost ( about 20 euro ) was negligible. Sooo worth the money.

The breakfast were not anything special, but it was enough to start the day. Tere were cereals, baked goods, juices, fruits, meats and yogur. there were eggs, but they looked odd, and we never tasted them.

Great hotel. Price was much better than many other hotels I looked at in Venice.

The hotel is in a great location 5 mins either way to the Rialto Bridge or St Mark's square. The hotel rooms were clean and air-conditioned, a must if you're going in July ! Its also on the gondola path if you start at the Rialto Bridge. Not the biggest rooms but thats nothing new in Europe. All in all, in its price bracket a good hotel to stay in.

Splendid Hotel was in a great location a few blocks between Piazza San Marco and Rialto bridge. Local to shopping, shopping, shopping! Great spot for sights and sounds of Venice...and on a small canal. Rooms were upscale but Euro-sized; comfy beds, very clean, and great bath. Staff was very accomodating. Local to fun but quiet for a good night's rest. Can't wait to return!

Great hotel, bang in the center of everything i.e san marco, rialto etc.

Hotel provides one way free trip to murano which is a must!

Breakfast is average but is in a nice setting. The usuals are laid out such as eggs bread assortments, bacon, canned juices

Room is quaint and extremely comfortable with canal views. The bed is very soft and will defenitely get u snoozing immediately.

we stayed here as part of our honeymoon around Italy and it was absolutely beautiful. Gorgeous decoration and very stylish inside and out. The bathroom was very nice and modern. The staff were lovely and the location was great. we just got a water taxi to it straight from the train station but it's very central to shops and bars so it would be easy to get there using the public ferry. Would recommend to anyone -although it's true, venice does smell, but dont let that put you off. What a gem!
