Situated in perhaps the most design-focused district of a very design-focused city, nhow Milan does not disappoint in the style stakes. Arriving here, you could be stepping inside a night club - but the vibe inside is relaxed. Bright and colourful social spaces giving way to peaceful, mostly-white rooms. Via Tortona is, like many trendy neighbourhoods, a former industrial area - but it's well-connected, too, with Porta Genova metro stop a 15-minute walk from the hotel and the bars of the Navigli canal about 20. nhow has a bar and a restaurant, too, but even if the only meal you eat here is from the breakfast buffet, you'll be impressed.

A nice extra is that it's close enough to pay daily visits to Mag Café (20-minutes away on foot), serving next-level cocktails in a friendly space full of interesting ephemera.

The Armani/Silos museum, housing the reknowned designer's work, is a mere 5-minute stroll away.
By plane: there are direct flights to Milan Malpensa from London (1 hour 50 minutes) and Manchester (2 hours 5 minutes). The hotel is a 50-minute drive from the Milan Malpensa.
