Top 5 luxury hotels in Milan
Milan, the capital of fashion and business, but also the capital of treat. And the concentration of luxury hotels in Milan is large, but not too much, just to make them even more exclusive and sought after. Welcome to a journey to discover the top 5 luxury hotels in Milan that we have selected for you.
1. Carlton Hotel Baglioni
In the heart of Milan, overlooking Via della Spiga, and close to Via Montenapoleone, it is one of the oldest and famous hotels in the city. Silk and brocade in the rooms equipped with all modern comforts. Don’t miss a visit to the historic Caffè Baglioni, with a wide selection of cocktails and snacks, accompanied by live music.
2. Town House 8
Its luxury is expressed in the great attention to detail, with an international touch in the art of receiving – right inside the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in the heart of Milan. “A home away from home” is the philosophy of the Town House 8. Each room is unique and different from the others, and all boast a welcoming atmosphere embellished with furnishings and objects designed and created by architect Ettore Mochetti. The hotel is connected via a private elevator to the restaurant of the Seven Stars Galleria “La Sinfonia.” Guests can request their favorite type of cuisine at the time of booking and there will be a chef to receive them upon arrival.
3. Grand Hotel et de Milan
Today belonging to the prestigious chain The Leading Hotels of the World, since its opening in 1863, it has hosted in its luxury rooms many world-renowned personalities, such as Maria Callas, Ernest Hemingway, Gabriele D’Annunzio, Enrico Caruso and others. The composer Giuseppe Verdi lived here for 27 years and he composed some of his works here, right in the suite named after him. Elegance and comfort, functionality and technology, but also the great Italian cuisine served at the two restaurants, ‘Caruso’ and ‘Don Carlos’.
4. Hotel Principe di Savoia
Furnishings inspired by the creations of the famous Maggiolini, exclusive carpets, rugs and curtains, pure flax linen. Spacious and bright marble bathrooms, equipped with special courtesy kits, hairdryer and bathrobe in soft terry. What more can you ask for? 401 elegantly appointed rooms and suites, for an unforgettable stay of shopping and rest to be enjoyed, of course, in the hotel’s Spa Club 10. Finally, Hotel Principe di Savoia features a sophisticated lounge bar and provides a limousine service to La Scala Theatre and the Duomo.
5. The Bulgari Hotel
Five stars, but without the “luxury” designation. The Bulgari Hotel is noteworthy, however, because it is a true work of art for Milan. A wonderful union between art and elegance. The luxurious rooms and suites are made with quality materials, they are lavishly furnished and decorated with great attention to detail. The Bulgari Suite, on the top floor, offers a spectacular view over the garden and the historical city centre. The onsite restaurant is a perfect combination of luxury and fine Italian cuisine. And a dreamy spa offers a wide range of treatments.
