      Perched at the base of Italy's epic Dolomite mountain range, now a UNESCO World Heritage site, South Tirol's Bolzano blends Austrian and Italian cultures, resulting in a charming Alpine lifestyle. Owner Franz Staffler elegantly redesigned the centuries-old guesthouse with lauded Viennese architect Boris Podrecca. The new design carefully preserved much of the original structure's integrity. Spaces were then sparingly appointed with antique furniture from the original hotel and custom-designed pieces built from local maple or knotted walnut. Each of the 33 rooms has a very special touch: some feature terrace views of the Dolomites or bay windows looking onto Bolzano's ancient square, while others boast steam saunas or marble whirlpool baths. Its bar, Grifoncino, lures guests and locals with its clever lighting, projections, and signature cocktails. A park, swimming pool, world-class restaurant, and meeting space for up to 180 people is available across the piazzetta at the sister hotel Parkhotel Laurin.

      Boris Podrecca

      In 1993, the complete renovation of Hotel Greif was assigned to the Viennese architect Boris Podrecca. The task was to redesign Hotel Greif’s interiors and rooms while respecting its old foundation walls. Starting from the main entrance where a transparent steel and glass construction is framed by the antique wood of the original portal, traditional and modern elements blend harmoniously throughout the ‘new’ Hotel Greif.

      Interior Design

      A canvas for local creations

      Each room has been furnished with loving attention to detail and features soft hand-woven Iranian Gabbeh carpets, oiled and waxed dark brown Wengé wood flooring, modern furnishing made from local maple or burr walnut, and original furniture from the old hotel that has been lovingly restored. The best Italian weaving mills supplied custom-made fabrics and silk curtains in the complementary colors, while local artists were commissioned to create new work for each of the suites.

      Franz Staffler

      Although engaged in all of his family's ventures, from agriculture to sustainable energy, Italian-bred Franz Staffler is most passionate about hotels and hospitality. Both of his properties, Parkhotel Laurin in central Bolzano and Hotel Greif exhibit his appreciation of a worthy challenge and his love of creatively revitalizing the past. From his travels through France, South Africa, and Afghanistan, Staffler has brought back a deep cultural appreciation of home, which is evident in his dedicated work. Hotel Greif, which has been in the family business since 1816, is now a focal point of local creative activity and a property as impressive and permanent as the Tirolean mountains that embrace it.
