Hyper-stylish design and forward-thinking curatorship make this canal district hotel feel like a giant art gallery
The quirk factor is high in this artsy 246-room hotel, housed in a former industrial building in the charming-if-a-little-scruffy Navigli neighborhood, southwest of Milan’s historic center. From the dramatic lobby, with its revolving roster of high-concept artwork, to the black corridors to the vibrant splashes of red in the hyper-modern guestrooms, the vibe is youthful and experimental. Join the neighborhood’s many creative types at cafes and bars, or just stroll the historic canals that characterize the area.
In the Area
Rummage for vintage treasures at the bustling Naviglio Market, an antiques showcase held on the last Sunday of each month by the grand canal. Or catch some jazz at one of the lively canal-side bars, like Scimmie, housed on a converted barge. Feel smarter with a visit to the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology, which features models of futuristic machines inspired by the maestro’s original drawings, then settle into a leather Chesterfield with an aperitivo or dance the night away at hip club Bobino.
