Palazzina G

Palazzina G

*****

Palazzina G in Venice is a sultry, saturnine Starck hotel ferreted away behind a 16th-century façade by the Grand Canal, with a champagne bar, giant chess set and terrace-toting suites.

Highlights:

  • Philippe Starck’s first foray into Italy

  • Hidden hideaway far from the Venice crowds

  • Venetian-favoured restaurant and bar

Smith extra

A bottle of prosecco and a selection of cicchetti (Venetian appetisers) made by the chef.

In the know

Also need to know:

A five-night minimum stay applies during the Venice Biennale (28 May to 1 June 2013). Well-behaved dogs are welcome for €50 a ni ght. Check-in can be on-boat, in your room or in the bar. Palazzina G guests can take a ride on the vintage mahogany Celli boat through the canals into the lagoon. Staff can arrange a host of authentic Venetian experiences – from insider city tours to cooking classes from a countess.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Venice: the land of elaborate masks, crimson coats, gilded gondolas, and most importantly, love. Mask? Check. Red mac? Sure. Gondola? Yessir. Love? Pass. I’ve got a 6’2”, baseball-capped, bearded, tattooed friend called Gabriel along for the ride.

Adventure is clearly on its way: we catch the auspicious sight of Fabio Capello swaggering onto our plane, flaunting the kind of grace and nonchalance Italian men have finely tuned over the past two millennia. We, meanwhile, display the kind of hungover, sleepless, dirty-trousered allure the British have so faultlessly perfected.

Dining information

Restaurant:

Meals are served pretty much anywhere, but the main dining area is in PG’s, where there’s an open kitchen. Paolo Businaro is the man behind the menu, which places simplicity and the quality of ingredients above fussiness and show-off flourishes.

Top table:

People-watch from a perch at the bar, or sit at the long table by the show kitchen to watch the chefs at work.

Last orders:

Breakfast can be served at any time, and lunch dishes are available from midday until midnight, when the bar shuts. Dinner is 7pm until 10pm.

Room service:

Anything the hotel’s kitchens can produce is available until midnight, after which a smaller, night menu kicks in. You can have food and drink brought to you anywhere you wish.

Hotel bar:

PG’s is a mood-lit mahogany cocktail den of exposed brick, velvet and leather. Lamps resemble gorgon heads; 15th-century pillars prop up the bars, and candles flicker in glimmering Murano-glass holders. Suite Apartment guests also get access to the Krug Lounge, a sultry, scarlet-carpeted ‘champagnerie’ with animal-shaped leather stools.
