This super-funky boutique hotel in one of Milan’s coolest areas—the Navigli canal district—has an eclectic style all its own. The 32 spacious rooms are organised by sports theme (boxing, tennis, rugby), but even non-sports fans will love the oversized beds, comfy couches and retro furniture. Many rooms even have large private terraces, a rarity in ultra-urban Milan. A complimentary breakfast basket—filled with bread, pastries, muesli, yogurt and fruit—is served in the hip lobby or out on the charming front patio.
Places to stay in Milan run the gamut from bare bones hostels to affordable, cheap hotels to over-the-top luxury. But the best hotels in Milan all are models of great design; some traditional and opulent, some ultra-modern and minimalist, and some just plain quirky. In addition, many boast fabulous restaurants, amazing spas or some other service that goes above and beyond the norm.
All are well-located, though where you stay may also depend on whether you want to be closer to the major attractions or in a less trafficked, more local area, such as around the atmospheric Navigli canals. No matter which you choose, if you’re staying at one of the following hotels, your visit to Milan is bound to be unforgettable.
