The owner 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.
