PalazzinaG


Palazzina Grassi aka PalazzinaG  - 8/10

This hotel is the coolest in Venice. It is the only Philippe Starck designed property in Italy and is billed as a very Venetian “sensuous” hotel experience. There are just 16 guestrooms and 6 suites available – all designed in a contemporary fashion. Expect mirrors, mirrors, and yet more mirrors.

PalazzinaG


The building itself once housed a Roman spa, was a private residence in the 16th century and is now the trendiest hotel in the city. The open kitchen in the PG restaurant is a highlight - as are the views of the Grand Canal and the Bottega Veneto amenities in the Starck bathrooms.  Design – Passion – Intimacy. Not really a family property.
