Palazzina Grassi? in Venice's San Marco district is a sultry, saturnine Starck hotel ferreted away behind a 16th-century façade by the Grand Canal, with a champagne bar, decadent atmosphere and terrace-toting suites.


  • Philippe Starck’s first foray into Italy

  • Hidden hideaway far from the Venice crowds

  • Venetian-flavoured restaurant and bar

Smith extra

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

In the know

Also need to know:

Check-in can be in your room or in the lounge bar. Palazzina Grassi guests can take a ride on the hotel's luxury mahogany boat through the canals into the lagoon (from €300). Staff can arrange a host of authentic Venetian experiences – from insider city tours to cooking classes from a countess.

Packing tips:

Mrs Smiths, free up some handbag space and leave the compacts behind: there are 286 mirrors in this hotel. And remember to pack your most comfortable shoes: Venice is a city made for strolling.

Dress code:

Rich, ducal fabrics: velvet, cashmere and damask.

Dining information


Meals are served pretty much anywhere, but the main dining area is in Palazzina the Restaurant, where there’s an open kitchen. The menu 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 between 7.30am and noon; and lunch is available from noon until 2.30pm; and dinner is from 7pm until 10.30pm.

Room Service:

In-room meals can be whipped up in the kitchens 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; 15th-century pillars prop up the bars, and candles flicker in glimmering Murano-glass holders. Guests also get access to the Krug Lounge, a sultry, scarlet-carpeted ‘champagnerie’.
