About Palazzina Grassi:
Palazzina Grassi, the first and only luxury five-star boutique hotel in Italy entirely designed by the creative-genius Philippe Starck. Born in 2009 as an innovative concept applied to the art of hospitality.
A magical place that expresses deep love of Venice, its history and culture that enables people to experience the “city of Doges” immersed in its unique traditions.
The first impression when entering Palazzina is that you are being welcomed into someone’s home: warm and cozy, elegant and refined. When you choose to stay here you appreciate the Venetian lifestyle, a universe that fascinates guests wherever they’re from. A long sequence of multi-colored motifs — huge rugs with striking patterns in vivid colors — accompany guests as they wander through the Hotel. All around, materials and colors borrowed from the finest Venetian traditions as revisited by Starck.
Italian craftsmanship and the best in the realm of art and design, together in a sensory synergy of form and color.
Contemporary in taste and cosmopolitan in spirit, although built in a 16th-century palace overlooking the Grand Canal, Palazzina Grassi, since its opening, has turned into a social stage, a scenario of sought-after events in the world of art, design, fashion and cinema.
