Luxury Venice Hotel


Fact sheet

This gives you an overview of everything we offer at the Splendid Venice.

The Venetian Romance
The Splendid Venice is located in the heart of the city between St. Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge. Overlooking romantic bridges and old Venetian Palaces, the Splendid Venice can be reached by gondola and water taxi directly into its own dock. Innovative design and subtle colour combinations create unique interiors. The public areas are exquisitely decorated in beige with a hint of wisteria, punctuated with dashes of black and red. Large windows frame an evocative view of the Venetian ever awe-inspiring canal life.

In the Sixteenth Century, the building was an inn known as Locanda Cappello Nero. In 1900, it changed its name to Albergo Splendido and again in 1930 to Hotel Splendid. The hotel was fully renovated in 2007 and renamed the Splendid Venice hotel.

Rooms and suites
The hotel has 165 rooms (16 suites, 6 junior suites, 63 deluxe and 80 superior rooms) that are stylish and welcoming. Some rooms and suites have balconies with romantic views of the bell tower of St. Mark's and Venetian rooftops; others overlook the internal Campiello or the canals. All rooms are equipped with Starbeds (luxury goose down bed).

The Campiello
A Campiello is a typical Venetian outdoor courtyard and the focus of local social life. The Splendid Venice's Campiello has a glass roof for year round use and is connected to the lobby and all common areas in our charming hotel in Venice.

The Altana
Solana is the name of the altana, a typical Venetian roof top terrace. A place where you can enjoy a stunning view of the city, the towers and the roof tops of Venice. A chance to relax under the open sky or to organize a private cocktail up to 50 people.

Bar and restaurant
With direct access from the canal and from the Campiello, the bar has a refined, intimate atmosphere with luscious fabrics and black lacquered furniture. The canal views through large arched windows are stunning. Le Maschere restaurant is one of the few in the city to serve traditional Venetian cuisine. The wine list is superb and private dinners may be held in the Sala degli Specchi (the Room of Mirrors).

Beside Le Maschere you'll find the library and media room, a relaxing space with velvet-lined walls and plenty of fascinating books for you to peruse. You're welcome to use the computer and printer provided, whenever you wish. Our bar, with its stunning views, is the ideal place to unwind and relax.

Meetings and incentives
La Fenice meeting room overlooks Venetian canals and can be hired for small, exclusive meetings for up to 40 people. On request, other prestigious and exclusive locations are available a few yards from the hotel.
