Starhotels continues to invest in Italy and pursues its ambitious development plans, reconfirming its natural vocation for high-profile Italian hospitality. Starhotels Collezione, which in Venice already boasts the fascinating Splendid Venice located between Rialto and San Marco, is enriched byGabrielli Hotel: a historic hotel dating back to 1856, the property which has been owned and managed by the Perkhofer family since its opening.
The hotel is characterized by a unique location: located on Riva degli Schiavoni, a short distance from Piazza San Marco, with breathtaking views of the island of San Giorgio Maggiore and the San Marco basin.
Embellished with an extraordinary 14th-century Venetian-style façade, Hotel Gabrielli occupies three historic buildings and consists of 69 rooms and suites and 7 serviced apartments and includes a large garden of about 600 square meters, a private pier, internal courtyards, a SPA, a terrace with a dream view, a lounge particularly appreciated by Venetians and a varied and diversified catering offer.
The hotel will become part of the Starhotels Collezione portfolio thanks to a property rental agreement. The Perkhofer family has commissioned for the management of the hotel Starhotels, which will carry on the tradition.
The passing of the baton with Starhotels was a choice strongly desired by the owners who place great trust in the Group in which they find the common values of a historically family business.
The restructuring already started has a value of more than 20 million euros. The hotel will reopen in the summer of 2023 as a 5-star hotel, a new landmark in the lagoon city.
“If there is a destination that represents Italy’s great beauty and resilience, it is Venice itself.” Ah commented Elisabetta Fabbri, President and CEO of Starhotels. “For this reason, I am very happy to announce the further growth of our collection of luxury hotels with the historic Hotel Gabrielli, a jewel that has belonged to the same family since 1856 and has now chosen to entrust its management to Starhotels. It is a reason of honor for us to have been selected from many international hotel groups and they are certain that we will give new life to the structure by achieving extraordinary performances, which is what distinguishes the Starhotels management “.
