About Palazzina Grassi:
Palazzina Grassi, the first and only luxury five-star boutique hotel in Italy entirely designed by the archistar Philippe Starck, was born in 2009 as an innovative concept applied to the art of hospitality.
A magical place that expresses a deep love of Venice, its history and culture which enables people to experience the “city of the Doges” immersed in its unique traditions. The first impression on entering Palazzina is that of being welcomed into someone’s home: warm and cozy, elegant and refined. When you choose to stay here you appreciate the concept of lifestyle, an “Unordinary” place that fascinates guests wherever in the world they come 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 and revisited by Starck: stucco work, Venetian “terrazzo” flooring, marble, wood, mahogany, glass and pastel shades that sometimes explode into bright red or acid almond green. Italian craftsmanship and the best of international design work together in a sensual synergy of form and colors.
Contemporary in taste and cosmopolitan in spirit, although built in a 16th century palace overlooking the Grand Canal, the Palazzina Grassi hotel since its opening, has turned into a sort of stage, a scenario of exclusive events in the world of art, design, fashion and cinema.
Actors and actresses, artists, VIPs, trendsetters and influencers choose Palazzina Grassi as a second home, a discreet place, with exceptional characteristics in every detail and with an extraordinary atmosphere.
