Our 8 Favourite Milan Hotels

BY Italy

Crème de la Crème:

Milan Hotels
Four Seasons Hotel Milano

Four Seasons Hotel Milano
Located in the most fashionable district in the city, this beautifully restored building dates back to the 15th century. The hotel itself is first-class, with lush furnishings, every imaginable luxury and two restaurants to boot. If you’re looking for the best, this is probably it. Excellent dining in-house at Il Teatro.

Park Hyatt Hotel
Superbly located just off Piazza Duomo and the Scala Theatre, in the heart of Milan’s historic centre, the Park Hyatt is best described as refined luxury in a contemporary style. Features a spa with both beauty and holistic treatments, and a fitness centre.

Armani Hotel Milano
For lovers of all things Armani, Giorgio’s recently opened hotel on the top floors of the flagship store is a must-stay. Subdued interiors, reflective of the classic Armani pieces featured just a few floors below in the Armani Casa (Home) store, set the discrete yet elegant atmosphere. With a 1,000 square-metre spa and fitness area, all details for a luxurious stay have been covered.

Milan Hotels

Bulgari Hotel Milan
Situated just steps from the shopping district and Brera, Milan’s artistic district, and only minutes away from the city’s main square, Piazza Duomo. The hotel is surrounded by the above-pictured private garden (the ideal landing point for evening aperitivo) and features modern design in both its public and private rooms. Looking to relax? Be sure to check out the extensive list of spa treatments or a tranquil dip in its gorgeous indoor pool (a rarity among Milan hotels).

See (and Taste) For Yourself

As the home of Barolo, Barbaresco and Slow Food, Piemonte tastes as good as it looks. On Piemonte Biking, we’ll hunt for truffles and get a firsthand pasta-making demo from an expert chef. Delizioso.



The Gray
This intimate boutique property with only 21 rooms features very contemporary design elements and modern amenities. Unlike other boutique options, it also has a gym, restaurant and bar. Palazzo Segreti A successful blending of modern design within a historic building, this 18-room hotel is a good choice for guests who appreciate an informal atmosphere with well considered art and architectural detail. Well positioned in the historic centre, yet also part of a neighbourhood.

Outside the City:

Milan Hotels

L’Albereta (Relais & Chateaux)
A bit of an outlier on a list of Milan hotels, but this 19th-century manor house an hour and a half from Milan’s historic offers a country setting amidst the vineyards of the Bellavista Winery. Four nearby golf courses, a recently developed spa and access to Verona make this an ideal alternative to staying in bustling Milan. Its two-star Michelin restaurant is overseen by the renowned Gualtiero Marchesi, the first Italian chef to be awarded three stars in his Milan restaurant.

Great Character:

Eleven rooms, plus recently added apartments. All rooms have baths. Advanced reservations recommended as are requests for rooms on the upper floors.
