Giovanni Stucky, a businessman from a noble Swiss family, had the idea in the mid 1800s to found a mill on the Venice lagoon. In 1895 the magnificent neo-gothic palace was built.The mill remained active until 1955, when it closed. In 1994 an important restoration and conservation project was began to redevelop the building as a residence and hotel.
From the terrace of the Sky Rooftop Bar, at the Hilton Hotel, you can enjoy one of the loveliest views of Venice, the magic of sunset and the city at dusk when all the wonderful lights of the city and the starry sky appear. It is a totally charming place where you can enjoy an aperitif and immerse yourself in the atmosphere.
Giudecca Island is an integral part of the historic city centre, blessed with a unique tranquillity and offering marvellous views of the Zattere and St. Mark’s Basin. It is well served by public transport and by the hotel’s private boat service. You can easily walk to restaurants, supermarkets, cash machines, pharmacies and anything else you may need. Venice awaits you with its museums, theatres, churches, small deserted alleyways and streets bustling with people.
