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.

Very good location, steps away from Duomo, gallery, and Teatro Lascala. Hotel is very clean, excellent breakfast, with good variety and excellent service at the front desk. Discounted parking close to the hotel.

I can’t say enough good things about this hotel, from the overly nice staff yo the comfortable rooms to the great location. Would definitely stay here again. The breakfast each morning was also nice, the only thing missing is a bar.

Excellent location

Been here few times. Always a pleasure to be here. Great staff, always helpful. In the middle of Milan, the hotel is very well placed near the Dome. Nice rooms, very clean! Very close to shopping areas

Will keep on coming back

Giulia has been my home for 5-nights while in Milano.

Location: Perfect. It’s right in the heart of everything - literally central. Right around the corner from famous (and crowded) Duomo Piazza. Plenty of shops, restaurants right out and Duomo train station a stone throw away. All major attractions are within walking distance.

The breakfast spread is extensive, they have options from gluten free, healthy and served from 7am to 12noon! The breakfast staff are friendly and efficient.

The room is spacious and the toiletries/amenities are upscale.
Room is clean, modern and bed is comfy.

Front Desk Staff are friendly and helpful - always greeting, always smiling. Andrea was helpful albeit a couple of misses on restaurants suggestions.

Overall, a wonderful stay. I would keep on coming back. I won’t even think about staying elsewhere. I like the Room Mate brand and would check out their others locations within EU.
