Mandarin Oriental, Milan

Sleek style in Milan
Mandarin Oriental, Milan mixes timeless Milanese design with the brand's signature Eastern charm and legendary hospitality. At the hotel, four interconnected 18th-century palazzos house 104 rooms and suites that overlook cobblestone streets and tranquil courtyards. As a former bank headquarters, the understated main entrance is on a discreet backstreet next to La Scala opera house, near the Duomo and Via della Spiga (where luxury shopping dreams are made).

Designed by Italian Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel Interiors, its stylish contemporary-meets-classic look nods to Old World Milan with its feet firmly planted in the present. A luxe spa and hair salon, a refined Italian restaurant, a bar with a lovely alfresco courtyard and superlative service add to the considerable appeal of this glamorous hotel.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Variegated and granite stones and warm mid-toned wood reflect the subterranean spa’s age-old Oriental style, and its holistic treatments are based on the five feng shui elements.
  • The Milan hotel’s indoor heated pool, laid with retro-looking turquoise tile, crowns a sauna, steam room and relaxation area outside of the spa. 
  • The Mandarin Oriental, Milan’s signature restaurant, Seta, features a wine list of more than 1,300 exquisite labels.
  • The hotel offers an outstanding location less than a 20-minute walk from some of the city’s most famous attractions, including the Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Sforza Castle, La Scala theater and Santa Maria delle Grazie, which hosts Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper.
Things to Know

  • If you book a spa treatment — and we suggest you do — be sure to arrive at least 30 minutes early to relax in the steam room before consulting with a therapist and experiencing the signature pre-treatment foot ritual.
  • An intimate marble dining room, the Piero Fornasetti-designed Duomo, is available for private parties and events for up to eight guests at the luxury hotel’s signature fine-dining restaurant, Seta.
The Rooms
  • Lavish rooms with wooden floors, boiserie walls and black oak wardrobes are washed in muted beige and purple palettes and start at 409 square feet — spacious for old Milan.
  • Bathrooms are black or white Italian marble with walk-in water closets, double sinks, Dr. Vranjes beauty products and a glass wall that becomes transparent or opaque at the push of a button.
  • The 34 suites begin with the Junior Suite at 537 square feet and top out at the terraced Presidential Suite, which is 1,612 square feet and has a private kitchen and Brazilian marble bathroom floors.
  • The hotel has design-focused signature suites: the Fornasetti Suite and the Premier Suite, which pays homage to Italian designer Gio Ponti.
The Restaurants
  • At the luxury hotel’s fine-dining restaurant Seta (it means “silk”), acclaimed chef Antonio Guida's contemporary Italian cuisine is blended with French techniques and served over plates from Fornasetti. Enjoy dishes like spaghetti with beetroot cream and lime crustacean carpaccio mingling with others like veal sweetbread with dandelion sauce, or pigeon breast stuffed with duck liver escalope, pistachio sauce with saffron and rhubarb.
  • The design of the Mandarin Bar & Bistrot showcases walls crafted in black-and-white geometric mosaic marble. The black laminate trompe l'oeil ceiling creates the illusion of an endless chamber above a generous black marble bar flanked by lounge areas. Contemporary, relaxed bistro fare is what’s on offer — expect flavorful dishes like ravioli stuffed with eggplant, tomatoes and burrata cheese, and grilled octopus with mashed potatoes and celery heart.
  • The hotel has two courtyards, one at Seta and another at Mandarin Bar & Bistrot. They are ideal spots to enjoy warm weather. Mandarin Bar & Bistrot also hosts weekly DJ sets at aperitivo time.
