Travel Advice: Armani Hotel Milan - Italy

Opened: 10th November 2011

The second Armani hotel to open after Armani Hotel Dubai (which I have visited earlier this year) is Armani Hotel Milano, and its only natural that it would open in the city of designer Giorgio Armani himself. The hotel has opened in the famous fashion district, within the extraordinary palazzo at Via Manzoni 31 (the same building as the one I mentioned in my Armani Nobu post)

The 95 rooms embody the hallmarks of the Armani brand: elegance, comfort and sophistication, and provide in-room amenities that are specially tailored for the utmost convenience of the guests.
All the public areas are concentrated on the seventh and eighth floors which have views of a spectacular and unexpected panorama encompassing the city, from the historic Duomo to the latest skyscrapers. The Armani/Ristorante is located on the seventh floor, where it offers superb traditional Italian gastronomy, an exclusive wine list, a private dining room and a Chef’s Table within the kitchen itself. On the opposite side, the Armani/Lounge with the Armani/bamboo bar looks out over the skyline: the double height ceiling, the wall with its huge window softened by louvered blinds and sections in backlit onyx and a good choice of music ensure a relaxed ambience in which to enjoy an informal meal, afternoon tea, or a light bite before dinner.
The Armani/SPA consists of six dedicated treatment rooms, a Couples Suite, a fitness gym, and a pool designed for relaxation with a temperature control system for maximum comfort. The sunscreen walls that filter out the bright light and the roof with its magnificent view across the skyline establish a slightly surreal mood. The gym also offers a wide choice of equipment for cardiovascular and muscular training, and is open 24 hours a day.

  1. The place is more on aesthetic in design. It will show the minimalism of the building. Bathed in a palette of muted gold and silver, gray and beige, the suite—and the serene hotel as a whole—is a reflection of the fashion brand's streamlined aesthetic.
