Palazzo Grillo, A 16th Century Palazzo is restored to a luxury hotel
The Hotel Palazzo Grillo, situated in the Old City of Genoa, Italy is a UNESCO heritage site beautifully illustrating the Genoese appreciation of art, architecture and culture.
Originally constructed in 1545 by Domenico Grillo, the building suffered serious neglect over the centuries but has now been completely restored under the auspices of Le Nuvole group to become a luxury hotel offering guests a comfortable and modern experience.
The intimate 25 room hotel, which opens to the public in April, is simply but elegantly furnished with contemporary interiors to compliment the vaulted ceilings, frescoes and columns throughout. A suspended Wireflow Lineal designed by Arik Levy greets guests in reception, its sculptural functionality setting the tone for a sophisticated marriage of the old and the new.
Cozy guest rooms are outfitted with light-hearted details, featuring I.cono table lamps designed by Lievore Altherr Molina and a floor lamp from the Warm collection by Ramos and Bassols for seating areas.
The hotel library and common areas also feature the minimalist Warm, while several Skan pendants, also designed by Lievore Altherr Molina, are used to light the attic breakfast nook complement the cozy rediscovered space that provides views over the bell towers of Genoa’s historical centre.
