Milan is like any major city when is comes to hotels … A dozen or so big hotel groups, and a million “boutiques”. So, Milan is one place that you definitely need a recommendation. Oh hey….
In its decor, this place is every inch the fairytale château, just a little more slick. It is described as a romantico castello and it is just that, if that romantic castle was also incredibly stylish with a great spa.
While they might have had “enchanted forest” in mind, you cant escape chic style in Milan and so that is clear throughout the hotel. Maybe if the enchanted forest was in the centre of milan and had been landscaped by high fashion designers.
My room had the mother of all furniture selections… a round bed with overhead circular valance. Yes. This may sound like something that is only suited to very whimsical people but actually, as we’re in Milan, they have managed to make it seriously chic with a feel of luxury instead. Bravo. Once in, it becomes a bit of a cocoon and I very nearly missed checkout for that reason.
In the spa, you will find the Sauna, Turkish Bath, Showers and a Swimming Pool with saline water. This is pretty perfect for a City Spa. Surely everyone needs a mid day mud wrap?
