Located on Milan’s Piazza della Repubblica, Hotel Principe di Savoia has been a high society hotel since the 1920s. Glamorously old-fashioned, this five-star sleep was revamped in 2009 by lauded architect Thierry Despont, who added a modern update to spaces like Il Salotto, a grand lobby bar where fashionistas and film stars sip drinks on plush highback chairs under crystal chandeliers, and the Principe Bar, a see-and-be-seen spot decorated with handmade velvet fabrics and giant mirrors that serves a rollicking after-work aperitivo hour and is especially popular during Milan Fashion Week.
Bed and Bath
With 301 guestrooms, the hotel offers a range of options, from Classic Rooms to Signature Suites. Even the basic room categories, which are furnished in rich pink, green or red linens, throw pillows, and antique pieces and window treatments, feel posh. The 19th-century-style furniture was inspired by Italian master carpenter Giuseppe Maggiolini; the bathrooms are decked out in rich wood and marble and are stocked with Acqua di Parma products. Deluxe Rooms feature hand-painted wall frescoes, and the Junior Suites come with spacious living areas.
Chef Fabrizio Cadei helms the kitchen at the Acanto restaurant, where you’re more likely to dine with locals than guests. Rooted in traditional Italian cuisine, the menu reads like a culinary tour of the country, though it does showcase a few exotic (by Italian standards) dishes, like spiced spit-roasted shoulder of suckling pork rubbed with Sichuan pepper. The hotel’s top floor is dedicated to Club 10, an assemblage of fitness, well-being and pampering facilities, such as a glass-enclosed heated swimming pool.
In the Area
The nearby Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli is a fantastic place for a morning jog or a late evening stroll. Inside the park is the Museo Civico Storico di Storia Naturale, Milan’s natural history museum, which is a great place to visit if you’re traveling with children. Most everything of interest is within walking distance of the hotel, including the Duomo, La Scala and Leonardo’s Last Supper. Design aficionados will appreciate the city’s glut of furniture and home design shops, such as the Nilufar boutique on Via della Spiga, which specializes in intricately woven carpets.
How to Get There
We stayed 3 nights in this truly beautiful luxury hotel. The room was large with a wonderful big marble bathroom. Lovely mix of modern facilities with old world features. The woodwork / inlay is something to be in awe of - truly beautiful.
All facilities are clean and in great repair. The staff were truly lovely -special mention to Laura (at reception) who was lovely and welcoming on our arrival as she showed us to our beautiful room. All staff were wonderful.
Location was good to Centrale and good local restaurants - but 20 -30 minutes walk to the central area of Milan. A wonderful service is the FREE Hotel - city shuttle which we used once after a long day walking Milan.
A truly lovely hotel that makes you want to come back to your hotel room.
Easily recommended and a must stay in Milan.
Thank you to all.
My husband and I spent 4 nights at this grand hotel. Our premium room very very spacious, tastefully renovated with a luxurious bathroom. The staff are very attentive, especially the person at reception. He escorted us to the restaurant b/c our room was not ready, then came to let us know when the room was available.
The location of the hotel turned out to be very ideal. It is away from the commercial center of the Duomo and the shops. But only a 15 minutes maximum ride by taxi to almost everywhere. We walked to Eataly which was 15 minutes. We are also a short distance to the central train station.
We can’t wait to return to Milan and will definitely be returning to the “5” star hotel!
This hotel is the definition of luxury. On the train into Milan, I called the concierge. He arranged to have us picked up at the train station and he made a reservation at a delicious restaurant nearby. The lobby bar and lounge is gorgeous, and the rooms are divine. I would stay here again, no problem.
The hotel is extremely beautiful and well take care, the room are very nice and big very victorian style..I love it....the problem was just the price ...over 450€ per night...I have been In hotel as good as this one for 180/220€ a night
Stunning hotel, in easy walking distance of both the old town and new town. Rooms are well appointed and comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent gym facilities. Would happily stay here again.
