This sleek, luxury hotel combines a high-end, contemporary design with a traditional setting in four adjoining 18th-century buildings. It’s a special place in which to base yourself during your time in the romantic city of Milan, offering a central location just a 4-minute walk from Teatro alla Scala and 1km from Milan Cathedral. To get here from the airport, it’s a 25-minute drive.
Each of the hotel’s plush rooms come complete with neutral colour schemes, elegant furnishings and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of natural light. Amenities include free Wi-Fi, 140-cm flat-screen TVs, luxury bed linens and Nespresso machines, plus marble bathrooms with heated floors. Suites add separate sitting rooms and oak paneling; some have terraces – there’s even one suite with its own dining room.
You’re well placed to easily discover all of Milan’s sights during a stay at the Mandarin Oriental Milan. For example, art lovers will enjoy discovering some of the most famous masterpieces in the world, starting with The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, preserved inside the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, which you have to book ahead for. Meanwhile, if it’s shopping you like, the hotel is close to some of the city’s vibrant streets packed with luxury boutiques. In terms of history, don’t miss a trip to the Duomo cathedral.
Eating and drinking at the Mandarin Oriental Milan is – as you’d imagine – a chic affair. There’s a fine-dining courtyard restaurant which features a sophisticated decor and a private dining room and serves delicious gourmet Mediterranean cuisine, while there’s also a glamorous cocktail bar and a bistro.
