The fashion and business capital of Italy is now home to the latest Mandarin Oriental property.
The five-star Mandarin Oriental, Milan opened at the end of July. Housed in four redeveloped 18th century buildings, the 104-room property is located on the central Via Andegari in the heart of the city.
“We are delighted to introduce Mandarin Oriental’s renowned hospitality to Italy, and are confident that Mandarin Oriental, Milan will become a new luxury landmark for guests seeking the finest address in the city,” said general manager Luca Finardi.
The property’s public spaces, 73 guestrooms and 31 suites feature contemporary Italian design by internationally-renowned studio Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel Interiors. Its fine dining restaurant, Seta, is helmed by executive chef Antonio Guida, formerly of the two Michelin starred restaurant Il Pellicano, in Tuscany.
The hotel offers two main meeting spaces: the Oriental and Taipan Rooms. Both are equipped with state-of-the-art technology and can be divided into smaller sections with retractable walls. The rooms also feature natural light provided by large windows overlooking the hotel’s inner courtyards or Via Monte di Pietà, and a neutral colour scheme with oak floors.
The Oriental Room can hold 70 guests seated or 90 for cocktails. The Taipan Room has a maximum capacity of 50 seated and 70 for cocktails. A spacious foyer separates the two rooms and the entire space can be personalized for larger events. For added flexibility, the area has its own kitchen.
The property also has a private dining room that seats eight. Located between the Mandarin Bar and the restaurant reception, it is ideal for intimate events, private parties and board meetings. The Mandarin Bar’s lounge, which features high ceilings and large windows, can also be used for specially-arranged events for up to 40 people.
The hotel’s inner courtyards are also available for events. The Mardarin Bar’s courtyard has sofas, low tables, cabanas and soft lights. It can be divided into sections or used whole, depending on the number of guests. La Loggia, a corner of the courtyard discreetly enclosed by columns, is suitable for cocktails. In addition, Seta restaurant’s courtyard is also available for private events, as are its indoor dining areas.
