For our first trip to Venice, my partner and I recently spent two nights at Palazzina G and absolutely loved it. The hotel is beautifully designed, our suite was stunning and the service and staff were impeccable.
The hotel is located in a nice part of Venice, on the canal but far enough away from the bustle of the moronic tourist hordes. It's a relaxing neighbourhood, but a very short walk to St Marks and the rest of Venice, so is still convenient.
Those seeking a change from the opulent-but-stuffy decor of more traditional 5 star Venetian hotels will love Stark's bold, tongue-in-cheek and unique design, that ultimately embraces both form and function. The bathroom was stunning, but practical. Our suite managed to be both dramatic and cosy. The hotel also boasts a lovely courtyard that's perfect for a few hours reading or sunbathing.
Our only criticism would be that we were expecting the restaurant and Krug bar to be a bit more lively. We had planned on having dinner there one night, but opted to go somewhere with a bit more atmosphere. Having stayed in hotels like The Chateau Marmont and Gramercy Park Hotel in the past, we were expecting Palazzina G to have a similar 'Soho House' feel. It may have just been the weekend we stayed, but the restaurant and Krug bar were remarkably quiet.
Incidentally, I can see why celebrities are drawn to Palazzina G. The hotel was full booked during our stay, but the design and layout of the hotel ensures a level of privacy I've rarely seen before. You could literally pretend you're the only two people on earth, which sometimes is all you want from a weekend away!
