Location for the Splendid Venice is at the historic center of Venice, surrounded by two canals, and centrally located in an area between the St Mark’s Square and the Rialto Bridge.
Because of its location, this is a perfect spot for a weekend holiday in Venice, as you won’t be spending too much time getting from one major tourist attraction to another, as they are mostly within an easy walk away.
Also, the opportunities for shopping here are one-of-a-kind in Venetian terms, as the Mercerie shopping street is next door to the hotel. For souvenirs, as an example, you have a selection of shops selling Venetian masks and Murano glass products, Italian designer brands, and much more.
As the hotel has a private canal landing stage, you can also reach the hotel using either a gondola ride or a water taxi. The water taxi option is especially enticing, as it means you can take a water taxi directly from the Marco Polo airport to the hotel’s entrance, without any need to carry heavy luggage around narrow Venetian streets.
With the hotel’s ‘splendid’ location, you are directly at the center of all the magic Venice is known for: Doge’s Palace, Piazza San Marco, the Bridge of Sighs, and the main Venetian waterway, Canal Grande.
Enjoying Venetian food should be part of your plans, and for that, the hotel offers its ‘Le Maschere’ restaurant, which, very popular with the locals, is one of the few that serves authentic Venetian cuisine with modern cooking methods.
Splendid Starhotel Venice also carries a (24h) room service menu, allowing you to dine at the privacy of your own room or suite.
