Mandarin Oriental’s First Hotel in Italy

  • Mandarin Oriental, Milan
  • Mandarin Oriental, Milan

The tastemakers of Italy’s fashion capital have a stylish new headquarters. Opened in July, the Mandarin Oriental, Milan, occupies four 18th-century structures that have been transformed into an of-the-moment hotel with mint-hued walls, glossy Carrara-marble floors, and custom furnishings in deep lavender velvet and tawny leather. The local firm Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel Interiors looked to the city’s midcentury high-society estates when designing the hotel’s courtyard restaurant, where chef Antonio Guida serves dishes such as fig-fed chicken on pearls of fregula pasta, and squid-ink risotto topped with calamari and spicy cardamom sauce. For antipasti and aperitivi, fashionable locals and guests gather at the hotel’s dramatic black-and-white-tiled Mandarin Bar. 

WHAT: Mandarin Oriental’s first hotel in Italy features 104 rooms and suites, a 9,600-square-foot spa, and two restaurants. WHERE: In the city’s Quadrilatero della Moda district, within strolling distance of La Scala, the Milan Cathedral, and the luxury boutiques of Via Manzoni. WHY: Exquisite design, exceptional cuisine, and a prime location in Italy’s eternally stylish city.
