Dining

Restaurant
The restaurant, discovering unique and creative fish and vegetable dishes, as well as meat and legumes, offers Venetian traditional specialities every day, with a penchant for sea food though with solid roots in the mainland. Desserts are only home-made - simple and genuine. Here are some dishes which have contributed to the Starhotels Splendid Venice restaurant's renown: Triptych of raw fish; tuna tartare (yellow fin quality), knife-cut with chives and local raw shrimps and sword fish carpaccio.Shrimps "in saor" : an old Venetian recipe, reinterpreted by the chef; shrimps are peeled and dipped in flour, then fried. They are then left in oil and boiled onion for 24 hours.The wine list is very good. The setting and atmosphere are unique; in fact, the restaurant is located in the campiello, the heart of typical Venetian buildings.

Tip with 23 yr old nephew

The hotel was awesome. The location couldn't be better. Just steps from everything to see in central Venice. You know you're staying in a great location when the traditional guided walking tour takes you past your hotel!! The staff were very accommodating and quick with email responses to my special requests for transfers etc. Breakfast is extensive and in a lovely setting. Really can't say enough about he hotel. Highly recommended for adults.

Perfect location. Excellent overall experience..

We stayed for 5 days and had enjoyed every minute we spent at the hotel. The only thing we didn't like was the wifi connection, they offered a free option, which had slow connection and limited data. I had to get the business option for 8 euros per day.

Great location

The hotel was in great location with all the shops on your doorstep, easy to find alighting from San Marco vaporatto stop. The staffs are friendly. The room is clean, towels and bed linens are change everyday. Room is in good sized, bed and pillows are comfortable. Even if it's in the middle of the action, it is pretty quiet. Breakfast has a good selection and fresh breads. After a long day, it's just nice to end the day with a quiet drink in the lounge. The restaurant served great food too. I enjoyed my seabass gril and my husband had a tuna fillet. Must try chocolate cake.

4 hr wait to get a room

After being awake for about 24 hrs, this hotel manage to make it worse. We got at the hotel about 10 am and was ask to wait till 2 pm since the room was not ready and an " early check in was not allowed". We sat at the lobby while other guest got checked in quickly. I felt like passing out at the hotel lobby while their staff simply just pass by. Horrible experience at this hotel. The location was decent but there are other hotels that are also close.

Lovely and in the middle of everything

It's beautiful, gorgeous, the service there is definitely five stars - can't say enough good things about the service there. The hotel rooms were beautiful and comfortable. (The notes about the walls being a bit thin are true - use a noise generator app when you try to go to sleep and that should be fine.) Value - well, this kind of location, service and hotel aren't cheap - but -it was an utterly fantastic stay. Will stay again.

In the middle

The best thing about this hotel is that everything we wanted to do was within walking distance as the Hotel was right in the middle of all the major sights.
