Hotel Greif - Designer Hotel In A 500-Year-Old BuildingHotel Greif  

This 500-year-old building was once owned by aristocratic families but it is now a designer hotel. A huge renovation project took place in 1993 when the Viennese architect Boris Podrecca managed the feat of creating a modern hotel encompassing four old houses.

Today, each of the 33 rooms has been individually designed by a contemporary artist using their own original works for decoration. Not only that but originals from other artists (often those influencing the contemporary practitioner) are also found adorning the walls, alongside poetry by the likes of Ezra Pound. The hotel bar was designed by architect, Boris Podrecca who wanted to create for you the feeling of being “suspended, glass in hand, as if on a cloud”.

Dinner can be had at the Grief’s sister hotel, the Laurin - it is just around the corner. It is one of the finest restaurants in Bolzano and it is located in an art nouveau building. The Laurin has its own park and in summer it is the place to have afternoon cakes and teas.
