Full of luxurious warmth, the Palazzina Grassi Hotel offers an authentic Venetian experience in the very heart of Venice. Instantly surrounded by a darkly dramatic atmosphere, guests will find themselves feeling right at home rather than ostracized by the opulence. A perfect balance between luxury and comfort, the Palazzina Grassi Hotel knows exactly what their guests want and need.

Designed by Philippe Starck, the Palazzina Grassi Hotel takes over a 16th century former residence to truly steep visitors in the sophistication, charm and beauty of the City of Canals. Rife with traditional Italian touches, the hotel is decorated with custom-made Murano glass works, mask motifs and an abundance of mirrors. Emanuele Garosci, creator of Palazzina Grassi, says, "Palazzina Grassi is more like a private club, a combination of a hotel and very unique spaces where guests can live as a Venetian."
