Venice is one of our favourite cities in the world. The romance of its beautiful streets and canals is enhanced by its friendly locals and great food. You can see our five must-dos in Venice here. So it’s only natural for us to share with you our favourite Venice hotel, Starhotels Splendid Venice.
Many of the hotel rooms in Venice, although grand, are extremely dated. As a fan of luxury and modern design, the Starhotels Splendid Venice is the perfect fit for us. The recently renovated rooms combine the grandeur and beauty of Venetian styling with modern and clean touches. Many of the rooms also feature views of the peaceful back canals. It is definitely worth paying to upgrade to a view room, as the best way to spend afternoon sipping tea is while watching the Venetian locals and tourists explore the canal below. The hotel features free WIFI (a great benefit to every modern day traveller), the ultra luxurious “Starbed”, the “Pillowmania” pillow menu, and 24-hour room service, so your every need is catered for.
Starhotels Splendid features La Maschere restaurant, which serves up delicious and authentic Venetian cuisine (you can find our review here soon), the Canal View Bar, the Altana Rootop Terrace, and a full library. The facilities are beautiful and homely making every stay comfortable and inviting.
Starhotels Splendid has the BEST location in Venice. On arrival, the hotel is easily accessible from their private landing stage via gondola or water taxi, or by foot from San Marco Square. Overlooking the alleyways of the famous Mercerie shopping street and only a mere five minute walk, through alleyways filled with quaint shops, from San Marco square, makes the Starhotels Splendid Venice the best located hotel in Venice!
The Starhotels Splendid Venice has the whole package, from beautiful and comfortable guest rooms to an unbeatable location to a great restaurant that serves up some of the best food in Venice! We highly recommend it to every type of traveller and personally cannot wait to return.
