My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Splendid Venice. The staff were friendly, the rooms beautiful and luxurious, and the breakfast generous. I would HIGHLY recommend taking the water taxi from the airport, because it can go directly to the hotel's private dock. Definitely worth the splurge (it costs 110€). What I would also say is that even if you reserve a canal-view room, don't expect to be looking right out on to a canal. It requires a bit of a strain to see the canal from the view of your room. I would also recommend doing breakfast in the room - it is only 6€ extra per person and really worth it. Feels luxurious!

centrally located - enjoyed the city and this hotel

Check-in during the early hours of the morning was no problem at this hotel and we were soon in our bright, clean and comfortable room. Our room on the third floor was a good size with a fairly large bathroom. No real view to speak of though which was a shame. The only slight criticism I have of our room was the shower situation which does not enable you to use it on ‘full whack’ unless you want to swamp out the whole bathroom as there is only a feeble shower curtain to prevent this from happening.

Breakfast was included in the cost of our stay and despite the hotel being fully booked we managed to get a table very quickly at around 8.30. The breakfast staff are a very hard working bunch but very attentive. Breakfast on offer was from a smallish buffet and extra items could be ordered from the menu although we didn’t do this. Quality of the food was very good.

We didn’t eat in the hotels restaurant given the large number of other places in the area although we did use the hotel bar quite a bit. Prices seemed quite reasonable and it was nice to watch the gondolas pass by after a hard days sightseeing.

As we were leaving very late in the evening we requested an extension of our stay in the room but were quoted around 100 Euros for an additional four hours which we passed up on. I respect the fact the hotel is fully booked but even a few additional hours would have really helped. There aren’t any real facilities to get changed in either so we made do using the bathroom in the lobby for this. The hotel had no problem storing our bags until late in the evening and this was done efficiently.

Lastly anyone travelling to the hotel via public transport late in the evening would be well advised to pinpoint the hotels location before arriving as it can be quite difficult to locate being situated on the corner of a fairly narrow street. If you are arriving via a private water taxi be sure to check that you will be taken direct to the mooring of the hotel as some companies’ state that they don’t drop off at the Splendid and will take you to San Marks instead. Despite this the hotel is well situated once you have your bearings.
Overall the hotel was just what we were looking for, quiet, clean, efficient and without fuss or pretentiousness but still having the high standards that we would expect of a hotel in this price bracket. It is unlikely that we will return to Venice in the near future but I would recommend this hotel.

We had a beautiful room with a charming view out over the canal. The hotel and room Itself were smartly styled and very comfortable. Location excellent. Only slight quibble was the breakfast which was not great. Would be more than happy to stay here again.

My husband and I visited Venice at the beginning of our trip to Italy. This hotel was the best hotel of our Italy trip. The room was updated and absolutely beautiful. A bit small, but suitable for the 2 of us. The beds were extremely comfortable and offered different types of pillows based upon preference. Our room overlooked a small canal, offering picturesque views. You can see the view in my picture attached.

Location was fantastic between Rialto Bridge and St Marks square. We took the Alilaguna from the airport and were able to walk to the hotel with our luggage from the Rialto Bridge stop. It was relatively easy to find and saved quite a bit of money from the traditional water taxis.

The breakfast was pretty good as well. Overall, we loved this hotel and I would absolutely stay here again. Don't miss this great find!
