Hotel Manzoni Milano

Finalmente a casa

There really are many 5-star hotels in Milan and I recommend the stylish Bulgari, the sophisticated Palazzo Parigi and the classic Four Seasons with a clear conscience – depending on your personal taste. All are characterized by a good / perfect location and excellent service. My personal favorite is the Four Seasons because of its privileged location and the world’s best staff.

However, if you don’t want to spend 1.500 euros per night for a double room or 3.000 euros for a suite (usually without breakfast), you should definitely read on or book the Hotel Manzoni straight away. In keeping with the hotel’s motto, you will finally feel at home there (after your arrival as well as after a day of business, shopping, culture or excursions in the multifaceted surroundings).

Personally, I give this luxurious 4-star boutique hotel a fifth star. The fifth star stands for service, elegance and luxury. An Italian newspaper wrote: “Hotel Manzoni, quattro stelle che brillano come cinque” (Hotel Manzoni, four stars that shine like five).

In this article, dear readers, you will find out more about the best 4-star hotel in Italy’s second largest city. There are many good reasons for a trip to the capital of design: the elegant boutiques, the multifaceted museums, the breathtaking Milan Cathedral, the world-famous Victor Emmanuel Passage (Vittorio Emanuele Gallery), the Last Supper (Cenacolo Vinciano: Da Vinci’s most important painting), the famous opera temple (La Scala), the Sforza Castle with its beautifully landscaped inner gardens (Castello Sforzesco), the Pinacotaca di Brera, Milan’s canals (Navigli district), to name just a few hotspots.

Hotel Manzoni – The location

One of the main reasons to travel to Milan, however, should be the exclusive four-star boutique hotel in the middle of the shopping paradise, the so-called Quadrilatero della Moda. The Hotel Manzoni is housed in a renovated historic building and combines Italian tradition and hospitality with contemporary luxury and state-of-the-art technology. It is an insider tip in Milan and the ideal starting point for shopping and sightseeing. The chic and luxurious boutiques, the renowned designer stores, the traditional and delicious confectioneries are spread around the hotel. Only a few steps away is the oldest covered shopping arcade in the world, the famous Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and the city’s landmark: Milan Cathedral. The hotel truly stands out for its location right in the heart of the city and fulfills all the important requirements for an elegant home in Milan. It is a magnificent and carefully renovated gem. Among other things, the majestic staircase reflects the hotel owner’s original idea of creating a high-quality five-star luxury hotel. Fortunately, it only became a four-star hotel, otherwise the prices would be much higher.

Dolce Vita against the breathtaking backdrop of the exclusive city, the fashion district before your eyes, the art galleries nearby – these are the paradisiacal surroundings of the Hotel Manzoni Milano.

Hotel Manzoni – Arrival and Check-in

Under a blue sky with warming rays of sunshine as well as birdsong and full of anticipation, we get out of the car.

We are warmly and immediately greeted by the bellboy who opens the door for us and, after a professional and cordial check-in, we are accompanied to the two connecting rooms we have booked on the third floor (309 / 310). I am overwhelmed by the high-quality materials that have been used in the rooms and the hotel.

You too, dear readers, will feel like being in a fairy tale, when you spend the night in this well-kept historic building. Unwind and enjoy these wonderful moments at the Hotel Manzoni.

The Hotel Manzoni in Milan embodies, lives and celebrates the epitome of warmth and hospitality. The dedicated and always smiling staff love their job and count many regular guests among their friends.

Hotel Manzoni – Rooms and Suites

The 47 stylish, bright and comfortably furnished, spacious rooms and suites were all completely renovated in 2003. They have a luxurious marble bathroom with everything a wellness lover’s heart desires. Furthermore, beautiful parquet flooring was laid in the rooms and suites. All feature high-speed Wi-Fi, one or even two large flat-screen TVs, a safe, a minibar, a tea and coffee maker, fluffy bathrobes, individually adjustable air conditioning and accessories that can only be found in international 5-star hotels. The renowned Italian brand “Culti Milano” equips the marble bathroom with its high-quality products. Of course, the turndown service is not missing in this elegant hotel. Some of the rooms also have a balcony / a terrace with a wonderful view of the pretty inner courtyard or a magnificent view of the tranquil Via Santo Spirito. No matter where your gaze wanders, you will be enchanted. A sweet welcome rounds off the warm arrival at the Hotel Manzoni.

I recommend accommodation with a balcony or terrace. It doesn’t have to be the top class of living, the suite on the top floor, but it can be. The 45-square-meter suite offers pure living pleasure. It is a dream room with a fabulous view. Unfortunately, all the three suites with a separate living room and bedroom were occupied during our stay, otherwise I would have shown pictures of these gems, too. A reason to come again and book a little longer in advance!

The four 36-square-meter Junior Suites are also characterized by size and elegance. Those who don’t need so much space should book a Classic or Deluxe room. These 22- and 32-square-meter generously proportioned rooms also feature high-quality parquet flooring, luxurious fabrics, fine marble and high-quality boiserie – MADE IN ITALIA. You will find more pictures in the slideshow.

Hotel Manzoni – Culinary Delights

The elegant and cozy atmosphere makes my culinary heart beat faster, the delicious breakfast dishes delight my discerning palate. The attentive service is a dolce vita feeling. The breakfast buffet also leaves nothing to be desired and so the day couldn’t start better. There are two high-quality indoor rooms and an outdoor terrace. The following pictures give a visual impression of the fantastic buffet. The warm à la carte dishes included in the room price are lovingly prepared à la minute.

After this delicious breakfast, which – as mentioned – is included in the room rate, my anticipation for the morning increases. I am overwhelmed and see how the boutiques greet me from nearby and the cathedral from afar.

As fantastic as the Hotel Manzoni is, the multifaceted sights of Milan and the surrounding area lure me on the following days with ever new highlights. During the day, I recommend letting yourself be enchanted by Milan’s diverse charm and in the late afternoon, let yourself be delighted in the BISTROT DON RODRIGO with a fantastic cocktail, an exquisite glass of wine or whisky. The small but fine bistro offers a rich menu, too. From classic antipasto to tasty pasta, delicious fish or meat dishes, the menu leaves nothing to be desired. A dessert rounds off the meal in an elegant ambience.

Hotel Manzoni – The relaxation

After a day of work or shopping, there is a pretty outdoor terrace on the ground floor and a lovingly furnished and meticulously clean little relaxation room in the basement with a whirlpool, sauna, steam bath and fitness room. I guarantee absolute peace and deceleration.

Hotel Manzoni – The certain something

The Hotel Manzoni was, is and will remain “The Place to Stay” in Milan. It is definitely a destination for the stylish world traveler who will appreciate the personal touch and intimate atmosphere of this luxurious hotel. We felt at ease and welcome even before we arrived: we received an email with all the important information on how to get there by car. Of course, the hotel offers a private pick-up service from the airport or train station.

Relaxation, enjoyment, warmth and appreciation are guaranteed at the Hotel Manzoni! The esprit and lifestyle always fascinate me anew. It is a magnificent and elegant second home in Milan. My mother´s birthday was a week before we arrived. The attentive reception staff noticed this at our check-in and paid her attention. While a lovely bouquet of flowers with the best wishes from the Hotel Manzoni staff brought my mother great joy, I am always fascinated by the beautiful flower bouquets that can be found everywhere in the hotel.
