ICONIC HOTEL | Laura Scatena
It has a precise identity, and is the essence of hospitality and comfort.
Hotel Principe di Savoia rises up in Milan’s Piazza della Repubblica, and from there, it dominates the entire city. It is an extraordinary neoclassical palazzo, featuring 257 rooms and 44 suites, and has always been a beloved resting place for cosmopolitan travelers. It charms with its service, excellent quality, and sophisticated style; it welcomes you into the Salotto, a lobby lounge with regal forms, marble walls, and engraved wooden boiseries. Treat yourself to the luxury of staying in one of its splendid rooms or suites, and let yourself be tempted by one of its many exclusive shopping or pampering offers.
For the 9 Principe Suites, architect Francesca Basu drew inspiration from a mix of Milanese fashion, art, and architecture: there are spacious living rooms with velvet armchairs and ethno chic furnishings that conceal a plasma TV or mini-bar. The Royal Suite includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms, an entrance hall, and a living room with walnut boiseries and inlaid parquet floors. The Imperial Suites were restyled by Celeste dell’Anna, now featuring both classic and contemporary elements in 4 apartments, each with entrance, a large living room, bedroom, walk-in closet, and bathroom. The Presidential Suite features three lavish bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, and a private swimming pool, all embellished with sophisticated furnishings and an unforgettable view of the city’s skyline.
