Even if you aren’t planning on visiting the Milan Design Week, we felt the obligation to prepare you a curated list of the best hotels to stay in on of Europe’s design capitals.
Settled in an 18th-century edifice, the Bulgari hotel will make you feel right at home in the heart of Milan. It’s impossible not to fall under the charm of the ideal setting. The friendly staff will give you the impression of being welcomed in a luxury private residence. All rooms and suites are so elegant and combine modern design, polished lines and luxurious details. The centrepiece of the Bulgari hotel is probably their private garden, an oasis of tranquillity. A perfect place to enjoy an aperitif alla milanese. For some downtime away from the hustle and bustle, guests can retreat to the stunning spa for a swim.
Mandarin Oriental Milan
The Mandarin Oriental Milan offers luxury accommodation a short walk from the fashionable Milan’s fashion boutiques. The property features a restaurant on-site with 2 Michelin stars and meeting facilities. Set in a complex of 5 connected 18th-century buildings, all rooms and suites are air-conditioned and designed by Antonio Citterio, modern décor and taco floors. They offer views of the courtyard or the street, and some offer views of Milan’s Cathedral.
Park Hyatt Milano
In all of its 81 rooms and 25 suites, the Park Hyatt Milano offers luxury and serenity in the form of clean design and quiet comfort. Park deluxe executive king rooms feature fruit baskets and your choice of mineral waters, while a Park terrace suite boasts gorgeous views of Milan from a private terrace. You’ll never go hungry with mouth-watering, on-site dining options like Michelin-starred Restaurant VUN, where you can enjoy a multicourse tasting menu unlike any you’ve ever tried. For breakfast, La Cupola features daily selections of croissants and fresh juices.
Palazzo Parigi Hotel and Grand Spa
From the outside, Palazzo Parigi Hotel & Grand Spa looks like any of Milan’s modern office buildings — glassy windows, metal frame, business style. Just take a deep breath and walk inside. If the magnificent Murano glass chandelier doesn’t blow your mind, then the “I wanna wear a ballgown and traipse down this luscious marble staircase” will. Palazzo Parigi is neoclassical luxe with a French twist throughout its ten floors. Its vibe is cosmopolitan and stylish, shown off by its staff, a well-heeled team of polyglots straight from the runway. Location is key: Turn the corner, and you’re in the Fashion Quadrangle, the very epicenter of Milan’s finest.
Baglioni Hotel Carlton
The excellence of the services offered by this hotel, along with its strategic location in the heart of the fashion district and the most important city hubs, make the Carlton one of the structures favourite by many tourists, but it is its attention to privacy to have gained the trust of major international personalities, from the world of finance to that of music and fashion. The Guest Book at the Carlton and at the whole Baglioni Hotel group really has few equals. The whole project was designed by the Spagnulo & Partners Studio.
Hotel Principe De Savoia
With a rooftop spa and spacious rooms with classic design and luxurious furnishings, Hotel Principe Di Savoia is located 100 meters from Milan’s Repubblica Metro and Railway Station. Rooms at Hotel Principe Di Savoia are decorated with traditional dark wood furnishings and luxurious fabrics. The spa has a sauna, a hammam and a pool with frescoes. Principe Di Savoia’s attentive staff can book tickets and provide a free limousine service to the city center. The ideal place to stay during the Milan Design Week 2018.
