We opted for the Palazzina G precisely for its unique design. After days of wandering through the marvels of opulent Venice, a moment of clean modernity would, no doubt, be welcome.
And, the Palazzina G, while opulent in its own way, delivered the minimalist/modern goods.
Love him or not, you know what to expect from Starke and, at the Palazzina, he delivers to his standard. Quirky layers of Venetian excess with those of "minimalist excess" make being here a feast for the eyes. The lobby/dining area is a wonderful place to be for how it makes for a lush and comfortable experience.
We stayed in a suite that included a living room, two terraces and mirrored bedroom that is not for the faint of heart, but it truly was a welcome counterpoint to return home to an all white, clean-lines room.
Unlike other places where I have wanted to stay in the room versus experiencing the city, I don't think in future I would opt for such a large room in Venice or at the Palazzina G, but be warned that the smaller rooms are well and truly tiny!
The breakfast and lunch that we did have at the hotel was nothing to write home about, good or bad, but I always recommend that one contact a local food blogger and go on a foodie tour to experience what is truly local to a place. Saves on the absurd hotel food fees, as well as helps find you the truly delicious Venetian delights (cicchetti).
And, the location is fantastic. Nestled behind the Palazzo Grassi (Pinault's modern and contemporary art collection/museum), with a view of the Grand Canal and, seemingly to us, a great central spot for getting around, the Palazzina could not be beat.
