The Hotel Principe di Savoia is the member of an illustrious chain - The Dorchester Group. And in every aspect, bar one (which is challenge for any hotel), the Hotel is a grand representation of that pedigree.
From check in to check out, I was well catered for by the highly efficient, very friendly service team. My room was large and well appointed, with a lovely mural at the head of the bed. After spending 2 weeks in Rome and Florence, I felt like I was actually sleeping in one of the many museums I visited! The good sized bathroom was richly stocked with amenities and the bath large and inviting.
I dined first for a late lunch in the salon on the ground floor, a delightful oriental salad which was delicious, particularly when paired with a glass of Frangicorta. On both nights of my stay I dined at Acanto, the hotel's restaurant. The meal and service first rate, with the sommelier recommending just the right red for my meal. I had a table in the garden, which was lovely - with the minor nuisance being rather heavy traffic noise. Interestingly, once you become involved with your surroundings, which are peaceful and quite romantic, you cease to hear the noise.
The pool and gym are terrific, with both a Turkish (steam) and dry sauna (both co-ed). There is a terrific terrace on the same floor as the 'Club10' which overlooks all of Milan.
There's no denying the location is in a part of Milan whose buildings/architecture harken mostly to the 1970's. This is the only drawback, as you're effectively in the best looking property on the street! However, a brisk walk southwest and you find yourself in the older parts of Milan, with their character rich architecture. The hotel is very well placed for short trips when you're coming in / out of Milan's Central Station, as it's only a 6-7Euro taxi fare.
