Hotel Greif is an oasis, quiet and relaxing, in lively downtown Bolzano. Recently restored and completely renovated, this hotel blends charm and a carefully selected artistic decorate with everything a modern hotel can offer people travelling or business.
With Hotel Greif, the viennese architect Boris Podrecca has created a perfect symbiosis of tradition and modern architecture. The restored facades and the parts under the protection of the "Agency for the Preservation of Historic Monuments" maintaining the charm of the original building but have now become part of a multifunctional construction.
Contemporary artists were asked to create a work of art for each of the 33 rooms. In many of the rooms there is also a work of art by a less recent artist and the two interact in a kind of dialogue.
Life is a joy to behold
Staying at Greif one immediately senses the special atmosphere of mature hospitality: as soon as you close the door you feel snug and at home.
The comings and goings, people getting to know each other.
The friendships, love, the electrically charged feeling between people and subtle eroticism.
500 years of joie de vivre
During its first century the building on the Walther-Platz square – at the time just within the town walls – was owned by aristocratic families who leased it out. It was not run directly by the respective owners until 1719. After several changes of owners and tenants it was acquired 1816 by Peter Staffler from the hamlet of Siffian on the Ritten mountain.
Since then the inn and the later Hotel Greif has been owned continuously by the Staffler family who had it completely restored in the years from 1993 and 1999. It reopened in grand style in 2000 as a modern designer hotel.
Unceasing loving attention to detail
In 1993 the Viennese architect Boris Podrecca faced an enormous challenge: to completely renovate Hotel Greif while respecting its centuries-old foundation walls. The grounds of Greif extended to encompass four houses over various levels and with different facades including parts of listed buildings. The task was to redesign Hotel Greif’s interiors and rooms and to integrate all areas in an ideal manner.
