Perfect in all ways except one. The sheets were ridiculously rough. Not enough that we didn't sleep well, but literally they were a texture approaching burlap. But amazingly swanky, tons of mirrors, modern decor, walking distance from lots of great sites, right next to a boat station, yummy breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A little slice of artisan Vencie."
PalazzinaG is located not far from the main tourist spots of Venice, but just far enough away that you get a feel for the original neighborhoods on which Venice was built. The hotel is close to S Samuele waterbus stop and S Stefano square. The neighborhood is quiet so sleep on their comfy beds is a great end to a busy day of sightseeing and cultural […] excursions or because of the location you can return home and take a rest on their outdoor terrace before heading out to dinner.

Svært sentralt designhotel som levde opp til forventningene. Hvis noe skulle påpekes er det utvalget til frokost som er av den Italienske typen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Modern, Chic, Friendly Hotel"
Me and my daughter stayed at Palazzina G in the end of feb-beginning of March. PalazzinaG is a fantastic hotel if you like modern, chic & design. It's located in the quiet but inspirational art district, near everything. There is a boat stop just around the corner and nice cafes/restaurants in the area. It is a small hotel, personal and quiet. The rooms […] are very chic, light and modern and the accessories and details in the room are great. Don't count on getting a view of the grand canal, unless you stay in one of the suits. Then the canal is right outside your window/balcony. We stayed in an executive room with windows facing two directions, one over looking a cute back yard and the other, the neighbour building. The food is very good and the bar/restaurant is tastefully designed a la Philippe Starck, old meets new in a very chic & comfy way. Don't know if they have an outside terrace unfortunately, since we were there when it still was rather cold. Perfect time to visit Venice though. I will return to Venice and then I am going to stay at PalazzinaG again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"erstklassig, direkt neben dem Palazzo Grassi"
Wir können das Hotel nur weiterempfehlen, bestes und besonders freundliches Service, sowohl beim Empfang als auch im Restaurant. Bei Schlechtwetter wäre es nicht besonders angenehm gewesen, dass man von unserem Zimmer, das besonders gross (2 Bäder) und sehr interessant eingerichtet war, nicht durch das Haus zum Restaurant gehen durfte, sondern dafür […] das Hotel kurz verlassen mußte. Sehr gute Küche, Abendessen in toller und sehr gemütlicher Atmosphäre. Für den Besuch der Biennale ist die Lage des Hotels nicht ganz ideal, sonst sehr gute Lage mit den besten Geschäften und viele Lokalen ganz in der Nähe. Wir kommen wieder!

This is a beautifully designed hotel with quirks everywhere you look. Our room was really quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable. The design is as you would expect from Starck - mirrors and polished chrome everywhere. Even the TV is behind one of the mirrors. The bed was comfortable. The only issue that we had with this hotel was that despite it being high season there was only a few other people in the bar downstairs. There was a total lack of atmosphere. The staff were very polite and helpful however I think that the design of the reception was a fault of the hotel. There is no standard reception desk and as a result if you want to speak to one of the staff you have to go and find them in a back office. (Not very 5*) All things considered we enjoyed our stay however for the cost there are probably better hotels.
"Would not recommend"
08/28/14 Jabiruart Perth, Australia
Stayed at this hotel for a night after a cruise and would not stay there again, was definitely not value for money as the room charges were very high (even for Venice) but the room was extremely small. No reception but checking in is done in the restaurant - first impressions were bad and also it was hard to find. We have stayed in Venice a few times but this was the most expensive but the worst experience.

This hotel won't be to everyone's taste as it is funky and quirky, designed by Philip Starck however I loved it. Our room was lovely and had a separate sitting area and little balcony. Attached to the hotel is the Krug Lounge which is populated by stuffed animals which serve as seats which is great fun. The one disappointment was sometimes the staff felt disorganised especially at breakfast on the terrace which didn't always lend itself to the most relaxing start to the day. That said my husband and I have been to Venice on numerous occasions, with this being the first stay at this hotel and we will be booking here again next time we visit.
"Honeymoon stay at Palazzina"
08/14/14 Stella L London, United Kingdom
After booking this hotel with much excitement and experience of Philippe Starck hotels I have to be honest and say it wasn't anything special at all. We had just been married at the Sanderson London (the best Philippe Starck Hotel in my opinion) so with this in mind we genuinely thought it would be of the same standard. Don't get me wrong the staff were lovely (Jack, Georgia and a lady in the restaurant forgive me I don't know her name) but it was our honeymoon, the hotel was not full at all there were never guests around when we were there. I asked for an upgrade and was told we had a bottle of prosecco instead, we don't even drink but just got on with it. Our room was small and I wasn't expecting it to be that small and the lighting system was a joke. They kept switching off regardless of card being put in the correct way etc. Was frustrating. A tea was 8 euros!!!! 8 euros for a tea on your honeymoon? How is that acceptable? Really quite sad about it in all honesty, it was a surprise for my wife too which made it all the worse when it didn't live up to my expectations and the money that was spent! Venice is amazing! People are amazing! This hotel, not so much I'm afraid.
"Great Room, expensive add ons"
07/12/14 Eric C Letchworth, United Kingdom
Stayed with my wife for 3 nights in July. Room was great (though a little on the small side) Lots of mirrors in the room make it very nice but not much room for clothes. On the positive, the hotel is very boutique with only a handful of rooms. Nothing is too much trouble but it does come at a price. You choose your breakfast the night before and the time you want it but it is quite pricey ranging from 13 to 40 euros per person. (13 buys you tea and croissants, with juice) To have it in your room costs an additional 10 euros which is quite amazing considering there is no distance to travel with the food. A pot of tea is 8 euros and if they organise your taxi to the airport they charge a lot onto of the price you can book yourself. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom was great too. Staff all very friendly but overall it lacks a little atmosphere in the evening. If its a romantic room with a lot of style about the hotel and don't mind spending a bit then this is the place. One strange thing though. We didn't want the air con on at night but the only way to turn it off was to ask the staff to do this which meant calling them in the morning to put it on!.....very strange. Also as typical in europe, don't expect a kettle in your room and expect to spend 5 euros on a small bottle of water from the room fridge.

Stayed in June , a lovely boutique hotel in a great location, easy walking distance to all the major attractions .service was outstanding , nothing was too much trouble . Booked through voyager .com and got an excellent offer compared to other websites .We had an upgrade on our last night to a terrace suite which was beautiful and if returned would , with out a doubt stay in terrace suite again .Only one thing put a dampner on a fabulous stay in a beautiful city , upon check out they tried to charge us for a tiny stain on the carpet , when I had accidently tripped on our last night and spilled some red when , the price you pay per night in a 5 star hotel I don't expect to be charged for a spec of as stain , which I'm sure the cleaner would of got out ! As we told them ASAP , when it happened .
"Perfect Hotel and Location"
07/03/14 SapphireBee Manchester, United Kingdom
Loved my stay at the Palazzina G a beautiful boutique hotel in a fantastic location. The rooms are small which is the norm in venice but they are beautifully designed using mirrors making them appear more spacious. The hotel staff were very polite and helpful in directing us around venice and ordering water taxis. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I planned a city break without kids in Venice and found Palazina G through Mr and Mrs Smith. It was an excellent choice, the room was of quite high standard and the service at the hotel was fantastic, up there with the Ritz Carlton and Four Seasons type hotels. We didn't worry about a thing all weekend, and what is not to enjoy in a city like Venice when that is the case?
05/26/14 Stephen M M London, United Kingdom
I booked a short break, in what looked to be a quirky, romantic hotel. Well, this place was everything you could imagine, and then some. The room decoration was amazing, we had a superior room that was large, clean, comfortable, with a number of extra's. The bed was also huge. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the breakfast was wonderful, we were very impressed. Location is also good, a short walk to all of the tourist attractions, and some good local restaurants.
"Dream suite …in a dream city"
05/13/14 echappe Burlington, Canada
We have stayed at Grand Canal suite in the middle of "Carnavale"….which was one of the best thing we have ever done in all our travelings. You really experience life in Venice. Quiet tucked away with your own private entrance, private breakfast area, great balcony right on the great canal….Most courteous staff ever which really came through after we left and realized that we had left a package at a restaurant a day before. The hotel staff followed it up arranged for a pick up as well as couriering to us. Special Party for the Carnavale was truly special. We will be back .
