Hotel Principe di Savoia

Our impressive neoclassical building was designed by prominent Milanese architect Cesare Tenca. Back in 1896, the hotel was called ‘Hotel du Nord’ and decorated in Italian Art Nouveau style, known in Italy as ‘Liberty’ style. The location of the Hotel Principe di Savoia was carefully chosen for its proximity to the railway station and city centre of Milan, Italy. Centrally located right beside the new business centre of Porta Nuova, close to the fashion district, a five-minute walk from the station and ten minutes away from the historical centre.

The hotel was originally designed to appeal to business people, but by the 1930s its grandeur and reputation for exquisite service had made it popular with royalty, celebrities and world-renowned artists performing at La Scala. In response to the hotel’s increasing popularity, two new wings were built in the 1950s, with two additional floors added later in 1958.

The hotel’s name was subtly changed in the 1980s to its present name, Hotel Principe di Savoia. Those who know us well though often affectionately refer to us as simply, ‘The Principe’.

We continued to build on our success with three further floors in the 1990s, including our tenth floor in 1996, where our grand Presidential Suite and spa are located. In recent years the city’s new Porta Nuova district has grown up just behind the hotel and can now be seen from the spa.

Hotel Principe di Savoia proudly joined the Dorchester Collection family of hotels in June 2003, to become our first Italian hotel in the collection.

After a major restoration project, we’ve just relaunched all of our meeting and event spaces. Take a look and you’ll find utterly beautiful rooms and versatile spaces in which to host meetings or enjoy special celebrations.

From our rooftop terrace you can enjoy vast panoramic views taking in both old and new Milan. The gleaming Porta Nuova district sparkles right in front of us with the Unicredit Tower by Cesar Pelli, while in the distance you can spot the Generali Tower by Zaha Hadid and Allianz Tower by Arata Isozaki.

Our public areas are easily accessible on the ground floor. The hotel offers four rooms that are specially equipped for the comfort of disabled guests. These rooms are located near the lift on the second, third, fourth and fifth floors (one on each floor).

We’re proud to be a family-friendly hotel in Milan. Children under three dine for free, and they can even order from a special menu filled with dishes they’ll love. Up in the penthouse we also offer private swimming lessons and armbands for their first splashes in the pool.

Perfect for families, we invite you to master the art of Italian cuisine with a private pasta lesson with executive chef Fabrizio Cadei. After learning some tips and tricks in the kitchen, you’ll enjoy your homemade pasta dish at Acanto Restaurant.

Meet maitre sommelier Mara Vicelli for a fascinating journey through wine. Over 60 minutes Mara will guide you through a selection of wines and champagne in one of our suites, before you enjoy a bespoke tasting menu at Acanto Restaurant.

For a truly one-of-a-kind experience, let us arrange a private viewing of one of the world’s most famous frescoes: ‘The Last Supper’. Offering exclusive access to the Santa Maria delle Grazie – even when closed to the public – our experienced guide will reveal the fascinating history of Da Vinci’s masterpiece.

Over the years we’ve played a starring role as film set for a number of international movies, such as Somewhere and Alaska. Let us show you some of the areas you may have spotted in the films, before heading up to the beautiful Presidential Suite for a glass of wine.

Milan is ideally located just a short journey from the beautiful lakes. For this exclusive experience in partnership with Bellini Nautica, we’ll take you out in a vintage Riva yacht on Lake Iseo, stopping for a traditional Italian lunch at a lakeside restaurant in Monte Isola. Your day ends with a tour of a private collection of Riva boats.
