As Milan’s most famed attraction, the Duomo started construction work in 1386 and was not completed until the late 19th Century – showing just how much Milan’s history underpins the charm of this fashion capital and bustling international hub.
The Hotel Principe di Savoia aptly combines historical charm with modern flair to create a truly unique Milanese experience – lavish, luxurious, and completely refined.
Guests are welcomed through a dramatic revolving door and whisked through check-in by concierge staff who are pleasantly welcoming and personable to each individual guest. Bear in mind that many (if not most) guests to frequent the hotel are celebrities from the fashion industry, or possess more wealth than one could care to imagine. Madonna, Elton John and the Queen are but a few notable guests.
The 19th-century building is often packed with A-listers, particularly during fashion week when chauffeured cars arrive within minutes of one another. The old-school glamour is omnipresent throughout the hotel, despite efforts to provide a modern luxury experience. However the very fact that the Principe di Savoia has retained its original and authentic charm sets it apart from other luxury hotels in Italy’s fashion capital. As one of the Dorchester Collection, the Principe di Savoia is incredibly polished, detailed, and unfathomably grandiose. Add to this an impeccable commitment to service on a personal level and you have an almost regal experience.
With 257 rooms and 44 suites, the design team at Principe have made a point of individualising all rooms with meticulous care. Guests can enjoy a formal dining experience at the Acanto Restaurant, or opt for an informal share of nibbles at the Il Salotto. However the Principe Bar is your optimal location to join the glitterati crowd and discreetly star spot as you sip your lively cocktail amidst a radiant setting. For guests looking to indulge the Principe offers an exclusive spa experience on the top floor of the hotel. It is also here where one will find the Fitness and Beauty Centre – dubbed the most exclusive in Milan.
The Principe di Savoia is pleasantly located away from the hustle and bustle of Milan, and with a complimentary limo service taking guests to several drop off points in Milan this becomes quite a luxury!
