Time Out says
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 organized 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.
The hip Navigli district is Milan’s own little Venice, known for its canals and its nightlife, with the highest concentration of bars for aperitivi (drinks and snacks) in town. The district’s interesting restaurants, cafes, and boutiques attract a youngish local crowd.
1. Al Pont de Ferr: For creative Italian cuisine and wine pairings
2. Bar Basso: For aperitivo in one of Milan’s oldest cocktail bars
3. Wok Store: For cool men’s and women’s designer clothes and accessories
Time Out tip
Don’t miss out on cocktails and small plates at the Doping Club, the Yard’s in-house mixology bar. It can be a scene, but the drinks are delish.
