nhow, Milan, Italy
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.
Your expert reviewer
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. There are also direct flights to Milan Linate from London (1 hour 50 minutes). The hotel is a 25-minute drive from Milan Linate.
Style & Character
Cool cats and stylish young couples who want the reliability of a chain but the character of a boutique property will love this hotel. There are notes handwritten in bright orange on the bedroom mirrors saying things like 'Seriously, you look gorgeous': surprisingly uplifting!
Service & Facilities
Communal spaces host an ever-changing roster of themed art exhibitions - guests can pick up a catalogue from reception, and each work is for sale. The hotel has several pet-friendly rooms (35 euros per stay), equipped with extras such as beds, bowls and toys.

Though pricey, the penthouse is genuinely impressive - spread over two levels, it features a cocoon-like bed and a bathtub styled like a swimming pool. Bedrooms are very peaceful, and even entry-level ones come with a capsule coffee machine, kettle and Clipper teas.
