The quality of the services and a particular attention to culture make the Splendid Venice Hotel a unique example in the Venetian hotel arena
Among the narrow streets (calli) of Venice’s historical centre, just a few steps away from the lively cafés of San Marco’s Square and the shopping high streets of the city, the Splendid Venice Starhotels Collezione is one of the hotels that best succeeded in combining the importance of hospitality with the quality of the services available for the customers. Always active in the Venice cultural scene, the Splendid Venice hotel focuses on the organization of events that can connect the city with what the best art and music can offer
Venice has always been a crossroad of trades, cultures and arts that have made it become a unique city in the world; its identity has absorbed, over the centuries, different and innovative influences from both the Eastern and the Western world: being at the centre of two so different and unique worlds has allowed our city to become absolutely special in the panorama of the commercial capitals of the ancient world.
The art of hospitality is a refined discipline, especially for those places that geographically cover an essential role for the commercial trades and for the coming and going of people and goods. Therefore we are not surprised that Venice has in its DNA a strong and well-rooted hospitality tradition, which has proved to be very useful during the years of mass tourism as an effective scale to measure the quality of life of certain places.
Among the hospitality venues that have been standing out in recent years for the ability to combine the traditional Venetian hospitality with the modernity of the services, we can surely list the Splendid Venice Starhotels Collezione in Calle delle Mercerie in the San Marco district.
The hotel’s 165 rooms and suites fully represent the same Venetian identity root, mixing styles and influences in which we can find – without being cloying – classic details of great value and at the same time all the comfort of modern technology, including a contemporary touch that gives the rooms an international and not at all anonymous atmosphere.
Having a personality is undoubtedly one of the most obvious characteristics of the Splendid Venice Hotel, starting from the furniture up to the services and activities that engage and fascinate not only the guests of the structure but also the entire citizenship, often called to fill the hotel’s halls for events and cultural events of national importance.
We have previously mentioned on this website the two editions of the ‘Life Music Aperitif‘, which has staged live music events in Venice during the aperitif hours: this music festival, in collaboration with Veneto Jazz, has brought to Splendid the greatest names in the history of music interpreted by the most interesting musicians of the national scene.
Not only experiences and hospitality distinguish the hotel directed by Salvatore Pisani but also the excellent catering, one of the flagships of the Splendid Venice Hotel.
Le Maschere Restaurant is an interesting point of reference for those who want to have either lunch or dinner near Piazza San Marco and who are looking for a good value for money, a fact reinforced by the great turnout of Venetians who throughout the year experience an authentic local cuisine seasoned with a touch of innovation and originality, in line with the Splendid style.
Sala degli Specchi is an exclusive space for private dinners and special occasions, while the Lounge Bar is the ideal place to relax enjoying a coffee or a spritz with a wonderful view over Venice. The splendid roof terrace, a typical Venetian terrace, is in fact one of the most beautiful in the city: a spectacular place, it can host private parties or cocktail parties that offer unique emotions with its unique view of the San Marco bell tower.
24-hour room service, free Wi-Fi in all areas of the hotel, a private landing for gondolas and motorboats, an excellent concierge and laundry service, complete the experience. At any time the guests can take advantage of ‘Upgrade my Benefits‘ service that offers the opportunity to enjoy an even more pleasant stay.
Splendid Venice Hotel and Venezia da vivere are together for the Art Biennale Experience
In 2017 the Splendid Venice Hotel has cooperated with #ArtBiennaleExperience for the #BiennaleInstameet, a project curated by VeneziadaVivere.com. The event has been attended by a group of Instagramers, who have come to the lagoon to talk about the Vernissage of the 2017 Biennale d’Arte, entitled “VIVA ARTE VIVA” curated by Christine Macel. The event has been covered through live-blogging on Veneziadavivere.com, on the social networks of @Veneziadavivere and, of course, on the respective social profiles of the participants of the instameet.
On May 9th, the Splendid Venice hosted the Art Biennale Experience Cocktail Party, a moment of relaxation and leisure that allowed the instagramers to relax after an intense day of activities and trips and enjoy the splendid view of the bell tower of San Marco
