Delightful Design Hotel in Milan


While we research our story in Milan we have chosen to stay in The Gray Hotel a member of the Small Luxury Hotels World grouping.

This, the epitome of modern elegance, is a sophisticated hideaway close to the cathedral in the centre of the city.

Its glamorous good looks are highlighted by delightfully quirky touches such as the eye-catching red and fuchsia pink swing chair in the lobby, an intimate restaurant, a bar, summer terrace and cocktail lounge.

Warm and inviting, the atmosphere at The Gray Hotel is that of a private member’s club.

Each room is uniquely decorated with some rooms featuring suspended beds, some with a private gym and Turkish bath and others with large circular Jacuzzis. Steel, glass, ebony, silk and vibrant animal prints are incorporated into the imaginative design scheme.

Ours, a delightful junior suite, overlooks one of the city’s main attractions. The hotel is just opposite Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, one of Europe’s most beautiful glass-roofed shopping arcades.

Being so close you have no excuse not to spend time browsing and it is well worth doing so.
