Bustling Milan is often said to lack true Italian charm. Not so at Hotel Principe di Savoia, which dates from 1927 and exudes old-world glamor and sophistication. The 301 guest rooms are decorated in luxe Italian style, with neutral tones enlivened by jewel-toned pillows and bedspreads, lush patterned carpets and brocade drapes; modern conveniences include desks and mini-bars. Bathrooms, lined in marble and mosaics, feature elegant Acqua di Parma bath products. The penthouse Club 10 Fitness & Beauty Center offers a pool, superlative spa treatments and a high-tech gym, all with amazing city views.
Though there’s not much of interest in the surrounding Piazza della Repubblica area, the boutiques of the Brera Design District are just a short walk away. It’s also not far from Milano Centrale train station, from where you can travel all over Italy.

Time Out tip
The Principe Bar, home to a 5000-piece chandelier, exudes sophistication, and is a wonderful place for an apertivo while enjoying tracks from the bar’s resident DJ.
