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
Convenient to the train station (preferred travel in Europe), walking distance (modest distance) to the Duomo, La Scala and shopping on Montana Napoleone. Breakfast is delightful, cheery and well stocked. The bar is spectacular. Nothing missing in the room and the concierge was extremely helpful.
The best and finest hotel in Milan. You get the feeling of real luxury and you feel taken care of. Very comfortable and relaxing rooms and the marble bathrooms are divine. I highly recommend this hotel.
This hotel is excellent. Our room was large, modern, clean & comfortable. The service was top-notch. Concierge & reception staff were extremely helpful. Centrally located & within easy walking distance of all sights & attractions. Food in the hotel bar & restaurant was excellent. However, room service was below par— really the only negative aspect of our stay. Better off eating in the lobby bar. I would stay here again when in Milan, and recommend this property without hesitation.
We got there late and i was the meeting planner for the group I checked in day early and was told by the desk that I had to pay my room for the night separately .........no problem i told her as I was the host...... three phone calls later it got sorted out !rooms were ok not like four seasons but what was really upsetting to my group is that we had to eat bfast in the bar while other guests were seated in the restaurant...... !
We had three dream days at Principe di Savoia and all I can say about this hotel is one word - pefrect!
You can feel pure Italian spirit in this hotel, impressive interior design, gently staff, spacy deluxe room with dream bathroom, balcony with the view, everything is on highest level..”Club10”, how is called their pool and wellnes area is also place to be, especially after exhausting day..
Breakfast was also great and everyone can find there perfect and healthy meal.
Every single thing in this hotel is just in its right place..I definetly recommend it.
