Mandarin Oriental Milan
Contemporary luxury in the ideal location
What it is
A lively and lavish newcomer with five-star service.
What it isn't
The sexiest option in the city.
What we think
The concept of Asian-Italian fusion may evoke long-forgotten memories of the 1990s, but the undeniably sophisticated Mandarin Oriental Milan puts those right to (a very plush) bed. Just down the street from the Teatro alla Scala and the Duomo—south-facing rooms enjoy glimpses of its Baroque spires—the sophisticated Asian brand’s first Italian outpost occupies a row of 18th-century buildings united by a design concept that blends Milanese luxury with Asian touches. The resulting feel is elegant, understated and intimate. Framed photographs and upholstered headboards lend a stylish residential feel to the 104 rooms, and the spa-like bathrooms are some of the most sumptuous in the city. The buzzing bar is chic enough for the fashion set.
You're here because
You want to walk to the top sites and value plush rooms and impeccable service.
After a day hobnobbing with Gucci, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana, you head down to the subterranean spa for some R&R in the form of a Thai massage and a languid swim. Hey, those shopping bags are heavy!
