Splendid Venice has been hoisted into Conde Naste’s top ten hotels in Venice in their Readers’ Choice Awards 2018.

General Manager Salavatore Pisani says since the hotel has undergone a €25m rebuild, it has been positioned – with its 165 rooms and suites – as a “Venetian lifestyle deluxe boutique hotel”.

Pisani’s team has developed and strengthened the best assets of the hotel, such as its Campiello, a large Venetian outdoor courtyard with a retractable glass roof, allowing year-round dining and socialising, the rooftop terrace and outdoor bar with panoramic views of St Mark’s Campanile, the restaurant Le Maschere, including its room of mirrors (“Sala degli Specchi”) which is available for private dinners.

The Conde Nast Travelers Choice Award complements another for “outstanding financial performance”, best REVPAR, ADR, and GOP percentage increase. “We will never just rest on our laurels but continue to improve every day”, concludes Pisani.

Within walking distance of Saint Mark’s Square in one direction and Rialto Bridge in the other, the Splendid is perfectly located for visitors who are keen to walk the city. After a long day out, nothing beats relaxing with a cocktail at the lounge bar, which has picture windows overlooking a small canal.
