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.

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.

Exciting trip with my husband

The hotel was really nice and they even gave us a complimentary upgrade because the trip was to celebrate our anniversary. It was kind of a pain to get there from the train station and then to the airport when we left since we didn't want to spend $120 Euro each way for a water taxi. Minimize the amount of luggage you take and it will make it easier. Make sure you email the hotel ahead of time to get instructions/directions.

Enjoyed our stay at the Starland Splendid !! The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and the food at the breakfast area was good and refreshed often. We also enjoyed being so close to Piazza San Marcos and the Puente Rialto. Would stay here again next time in Venice !!!

Perfectly located up beat hotel

The hotel is perfectly located, an easy walk from San Marco and Rialto bridge. The rooms are very pleasant, clean and cheerful. We exchanged our pillows for ergonomic ones which were very comfortable. Overall very pleasant experience. The price was a little on the high side.

Everything

Having spent a lot of time in 5 Star Hotels, we were more than impressed with this hotel and quite surprised at only having a 4 star rating. The location is perfect and everything about the hotel lived up to the narrative advertised. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in a 4 or 5 star hotel in the centre of the tourist area of venice.

Not worth the price

Had a canal view not the same as te grand canal. :-( very noisy could hear everything outside and upstairs and down stair was very upsetting if your trying to sleep. Bed was rock solid. The only good part was the food was good and the staff was very friendly.
