Meeting privacy, flexibility, elegant luxury are the guidelines of Palazzina Grassi that will be able to daze you with its mahogany, glass, antique bricks, huge rugs with original patterns, stucco works with vivid colours, natural stones and leathers.
With no reception desk, a personalized check-in service on the room or on board of our private, 1962 wooden made Celli boat, marks the beginning of the “tailor made” Venetian experience: The PG’S restaurant offers the best of Venetian cuisine with its show kitchen where the chef prepares everything at the moment; every dish is homemade: from brad to biscuits, form gnocchi to chocolate. Breakfast can be served at any time and everywhere our guests want it. The G Club, that will become the first Krug Room champagnerie in Italy, where only the guests of the hotel and a few selected Venetian can have access through a private card. Hotel guests are treated like Venetians not like tourists.
The Venetian dream at Palazzina Grassi
No other place in the world will ever be able to convey the unique poetry and emotions, the sophisticated atmosphere and the timeless game of seduction that Venice has always suggested to people’s imagination. This is the Venetian dream. This is the emotional experience we would like to offer at Palazzina Grassi: the new Venetian jewel created by Philippe Starck in a XVI century building overlooking the Canal Grande, as his first hotellerie project in Italy.
Dream, poetry, romanticism and tradition, revised by the ingenious and multi-faceted French designer, all converge in this five-star new generation luxury hotel at the forefront of the hotel industry, thanks to the innovative hospitality philosophy conceived by its owner Emanuele Garosci, including customised services like personalised check in or breakfast anywhere and anytime, and the exceptional quality of the interiors, designed in every detail by Starck and individually created by the best Italian craftsmen and masters.
Through its unique design, melting the traditional Venetian décor such as mirrors, mahogany, glass, antique bricks with highly innovative contemporary pieces in a dream-like dimension of contrast and harmony, Palazzina Grassi conveys in a single place the spirit and essence of Venice, making its guests feel “temporarily Venetian”.
The atmosphere is that of a lived-in home, full of life and charm, where the extraordinary nature of the spaces and furnishings combines with a selection of the most refined luxury antiques, including valuable books, antique glasses and luxury vintage objects.
Every detail of the journey across the hotel contributes to perfect the mise-en-scène of the timeless Venice conceived by Starck. A kaleidoscope of emotions, feelings and colours exhales from the hotel’s 26 rooms among which 5 suite and from the public spaces, such as the Venice-inspired luxurious bar and PG’s restaurant – a new “cicchetteria”/luxury “osteria” – fully enveloped in Venetian mahogany and boasting long and dramatic jewel-like tables; the private G Club, only accessible to hotel guests and members, and the balconies overlooking the peaceful and multicoloured Venetian rooftops. But also the nearly 300 backlit mirrors that accompany guests along the whole of Palazzina Grassi, as well as the unique artworks of French and Murano-based artist Aristide Najean, which welcome guests on their arrival at Palazzina Grassi.
All these features make this sophisticated human scale hotel a highly original accommodation, which is off the beaten track and can offer a unique experience in an extraordinary city like Venice.
