Why not ring the changes and stay at a hotel full of art in the heart of Bolzano? You’re welcome to touch everything here; we’re great believers in the personal touch.
Franz Staffler is the man who created the Greif as you see it today. He chose all the Rubelli fabrics, selected six types of marble for the bathrooms and matched the carpets to the rooms. He gave 33 artists a free hand to create a unique visual feast. And found an architect who could conserve 500 years of history while creating something contemporary too. Thanks to Franz Staffler, all 33 rooms have a knack that’s rare in hotels: they make you want to live there. Try one and you’ll see what we mean.

Do gryphons exist? Of course, if you believe in them. Since time immemorial they have protected the things we value. By day, and in our dreams.


A man

and a vision

Franz Staffler was very clear that wanted his Greif to be comfortable and beautiful. So he only accepted materials and ideas that would stand the test of time.

True hoteliers think in dynasties. Their goal is to pass on what they inherit – an attitude Franz Staffler grew up with. He is committed to tradition, and believes his innovative spirit is no more than the family deserves. The businessman and patron of the arts had a clear vision for his new Greif: “I wanted a symbiosis of hotel and art, not just a hotel that frames art.” From the architecture to the art and hand-crafted furniture, not a single detail was overlooked.

The heat bath to awaken your senses

A different way to experience the sauna. Gradual, slow, and embracing. The bio sauna is a heat bath that permeates the senses and embraces mind and body, to bring harmony between them. A real sensory awakening, thanks to the temperature that does not exceed 95°c and a humidity rate of 15-30%. A wellness solution to relax, tone and moisturise the skin, and reduce stress and anxiety.
