Situated in the very heart of Milan, this seventeenth century building has been recently renovated and turned into a cosy little Hotel de Charme which combines a private-home atmosphere with every modern comfort.

Petit Palais is a refined Hotel where you can savour the most authentic essence of Milanese stately homes, emphasised by wood panelling, Murano glass chandeliers, Eastern carpets, floorings that span from wood to ancient medone lombardo (local variegated cotto tiles) and Italian marble, as well as glassware and granite columns.

This compact heritage palace, once facing the Naviglio canal (later filled in and now become an area known as Cerchia dei Navigli), has undergone thorough refurbishment and now shines in all its ancient splendour.

Guests can choose from 18 elegantly and individually decorated rooms and suites with a remarkable attention for details; to complement the common areas a modular conference hall for up to 30 attendees and a lobby that looks more like the sitting room of a mansion.

A few minutes’ walk from iconic landmarks such as the Duomo CathedralTeatro alla Scala and Sforzesco Castle, Petit Palais is ideally located to move around the downtown searching for cultural, entertainment and shopping activities.
