Built on the site of a former perfume factory, the 28-suite Magna Pars Suites maintains an industrial aesthetic: large plate glass panels, white steel and wood, metal catwalks connecting the rooms. Plus, an exposed concrete wall from the original facility forms one side of the building. An open-air lobby and entrance courtyard hung with sail-like sunshades overlooks a lush garden and softens all these hard-edged elements, resulting in a pleasantly balanced yin-yang. This continues in the living room–like library, which achieves a Zen vibe, and in the sunken courtyard-adjacent restaurant below.
Bed and Bath
Every ample, loft-like suite features dining, seating and sleeping areas, plus a kitchenette on one wall, with rooms arranged in an open-plan format. (Sliding shutters divide the bedroom from the rest of the space, however, and the bathroom is self-enclosed as well.) The all-white walls and darkly stained wood floors set off the sleek, contemporary furnishings, including brightly colored Poltrona Frau leather couches and Flos lighting fixtures. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls overlook the courtyard, their light-filtering and blackout shades controlled by a touchscreen panel that also works the lights, air-conditioning and heat. In the large bathrooms, made of beige and white stone, guests find custom-scented amenities created by the perfume-making family that owns the property.
The hotel’s modern Italian restaurant, Da Noi In, is helmed by Piedmontese chef Fulvio Siccardi, whose previous restaurants have earned him two Michelin stars and whose artfully presented plates have him well on the way to doing the same at Magna Pars. The lavender-accented space and the adjacent golden Liquidambar bar maintain the aesthetic of the rest of the hotel, and they overlook the hotel’s verdant courtyard, which has canopied outdoor seating in the warmer months. On the roof a large deck space can be used for private parties, as can the adjacent Magna Pars event space. Also overlooking the garden is the hotel’s library, filled with art and design books, magazines and newspapers, and the Technogym fitness center, which is surprisingly large given the number of rooms in the hotel.
In the Area
The Navigli neighborhood is great for fashion and vintage shopping along Corso di Porta Ticinese, and it also features bars and restaurants as well as design and cultural sights. La Scala’s open-to-the-public backstage warehouses are here, as is the style-centered Design Library, and there’s an antiques market on the last Sunday of every month. An easy walk to the metro takes you to the center of town and the Duomo, La Scala and Da Vinci’s Last Supper, or to other vibrant Milan districts, including Corso Como and Brera.
How to Get There
We loved our 2 night stay in Magna Pars. Their staff are very professional in a friendly way. The food and service in the bar and restaurant was excellent. Our suite was fabulous and we had no noise issues at all and I am a very light sleeper. The restaurant is well situated with a 10 min walk to Navigli with all its bars and restaurants and 30 minute walk to the Piazza Duomo. We will definitely stay here when we next visit Milan.
There is no shortage of high-quality hotels in Milano. Therefore, it is a temerity to say that Magna Pars is the best choice in town. But it surely one of the top. The building is modern, innovative, clean and beautiful, the rooms are excellent, the location is good, the staff is very friendly and (excluding the concierge service) competent.
Great spot to enjoy a stay in Milan. This area is incredibly crowded during the Salone del Mobile, but in June was just amazing. Plenty of great restaurants in walking distance and the hotel is a nice piece of design. Breakfast buffet is delicious - worth splashing out. The room was spacious clean and with a beautiful view of the cortile. Also service was excellent.
clean rooms, friendly & helpfull staff, wonderfull aroma, quiet & calme area, very nice restaurant.
Air Conditionner was a bit noisy.
