The Italian capital of fashion is home to one of the most stylish hotels in the world. The Excelsior Gallia has an interesting story: its primary function was to complement the Milanese railway station in 1932. It went through a complete renovation in December 2014, led by the renowned Milanese designer Marco Piva who has an impressive attention to details. All is new, from the cutlery to the decoration.
After passing by the hotel’s revolving doors, the guests are welcomed by a hall with futuristic chairs and marble floors. One of the hotel’s most attractive characteristics is a 30 meters cascading chandelier that hovers over the main staircase. Absolutely luxurious! The outdoor bathrooms are an extravagance aside: doors with motion sensors, cubic shaped urinals and an outstanding scenic lighting.
The interiors of the Excelsior Gallia suites are as minimalistic as the hotel itself - add that to technological devices such as motion sensors and privacy buttons that indicate whether a housekeeping is necessary.
Our favorite suites are:
