Overview

Enticing primary colors and innovative design by Patricia Urquiola make this budget-friendly hotel a great option in central Milan

The Lowdown

Room Mate, a Spanish hotel chain, is rapidly expanding its portfolio of good-value, high-design properties, and Giulia is one of the most recent. Employing the services of celebrated designer Patricia Urquiola, this hotel sports a colorful interior with craftily deployed midcentury modern furniture custom-made by Italian brand Cassina, where Urquiola is the creative director. We especially love the recurring grid pattern, including the wallpaper that covers each room’s ceiling, set off by painted walls of robin’s egg blue or sea green. Rooms feature industrial metal shelving for clothes storage and lamps by Flos and Oluce, and the bathrooms are spacious and have luxe touches like towel warmers. The only meal offered is breakfast, but the hotel’s fabulously convenient location means there are myriad dining options just steps from the hotel. For the price, this is one of the best value spots in the city.

In the Area

The hotel’s location, in the heart of central Milan and just steps from the Duomo, is unbeatable—though the nearest metro stop is only a minute away if you want to explore further. Swing by Café Trussardi, an ultra-chic coffee shop, for an early-morning espresso and croissant before doing some shopping in the adjacent boutique. The hotel is next door to the Galleria Vitterio Emmanuele, a stunning double-arcade shopping mall and popular meeting place for locals that has been beautifully restored over the years (it dates back to the mid-19th century). It’s now filled with high-end Italian design brands like Prada. Cultural attractions abound, too: the Teatro alla Scala, the historic home of lavish opera and ballet performances, is just a few minutes away, as is the Leonardo3 Museum, which is dedicated to the work and life of Leonardo da Vinci.

A True Oasis In Milan

We recently stayed at Room Mates Giulia in Milan. I am now a big fan of this boutique chain of hotels. I found the hotel in Milan to be very comfortable and pleasant. The attentive staff went out of their way to make you feel welcomed. The hotel itself was a real eye opener; the location was great and the emphasis on being green is a very important a part of the way the hotel is managed. Finally I must compliment Sara who provided exceptional service.

Great location and very Chic hotel

I came for a night in Milan (business). Found this magical and chic design, very friendly (and welcoming) stuff and excellent location!
Breakfast was great too. I look forward to visit Milan and stay there again!

Fantastic finish to a long holiday

We decided to treat ourselves to our last night in Italy, and what a treat. Could not fault the staff or hotel. To us everything was perfect,especially the location. The staff could not do enough to help and were so friendly from the moment we stepped through the door. Rooms were fabulous and roomy especially as we had a room for 3. Great selection for breakfast too
