GRAND HOTEL ET DE MILAN
Since its opening almost 150 years ago, high society has been drawn to Grand Hotel et de Milan by its grandeur and old Milanese charm.
It is a stone’s throw away from La Scala and the fashion district surrounding the Duomo cathedral. Despite all its stateliness, the ‘Milan’, as it is known, retains the personal touch as it has been run by the Bertazzoni family for three successive generations, something of a rarity in hotels of this calibre. While some rooms are traditionally furnished with original antiques, others have been inspired by some of the hotel’s bizarre guests and include some fairly eccentric objets d’art.
TOP SUITE GIUSEPPE VERDI SUITE
Why we love it: More a museum piece than a suite, the Giuseppe Verdi Suite is a tribute to the composer who stayed here for 27 years until his death. The neoclassical windows and marble fireplace have remained the same ever since. Staying here will not only make you feel like a late 19th century aristocrat, you’ll also get a completely exclusive insight into Milan’s most famous hero.
