Grand Visconti Palace ****


The charm of the Grand Visconti Palace lies in its ability to place its guests into a dimension of welcome comprising atmospheres, feelings and areas in which they can take care of themselves, and settings far away from the bustle and noise to relax and work in.

At the Grand Visconti Palace you are in the heart of lived-in Milan, the Milan of the Milanese. In a district which sprang up at the beginning of the 20th century, with straight roads and beautiful precise buildings now known as Old Milan style. Close to a railway branch which is now no longer in use, in a building which stands on the area of one of the reference points of industrial Milan.

From 1920 onwards this area accommodated the Verga Mill: trains used to come right into the courtyard to load flour to be transported all over Italy. Nowadays that courtyard, which houses the bedrooms, the Health Centre and the Conference Centre, is an extraordinary spacious green area in the Italian garden style. A hotel that is both modern and old, classical but without trimmings, fashionable but without being trendy, and sober, elegant and true, the Grand Visconti Palace presents itself forward as a dynamic, versatile reality - an area to experience as a natural, prestigious location for events, shows, exhibitions, fashion shows and much more besides. The Grand Visconti Palace is the only City Resort in Milan.

The hotel has 162 rooms of the Classic, Quality and Exclusive type, and 10 Suites ranging from the Junior Suites to the Tower Suite. While the bedrooms are classical, many of the suites have been given touches of a slight minimalist design, for tastes which are sophisticated but not traditional. The hotel has 4 Junior Suites, 3 Executive Suites, 2 Grand Suites and the exclusive Tower Suite.

Sophisticated decoration, precious Italian polychromatic marble, and Murano crystal lamps and lights cocoon our guests in an atmosphere rich in warmth and solid elegance.;

Restaurant "al V piano" - both by name and in reality. Overlooking the roofs of Milan, it is accessed via a lift. It is a cosy area with a half arched ceiling, a large antique mirror as scene design, ostrich chairs and design lamps. The design is essential but not cold - modern classicality in every shade of dove-grey and sand. The restaurant is the realm of light, but sophisticated cuisine based on the Mediterranean influence while daring to effect some creative touches, and without neglecting the great classic Lombardy and Milanese dishes and some old dishes.

Compared with Milan's other cocktail bars, the Visavis is the ideal solution for enjoying spending time in. Named Visavis precisely because it is vis-à-vis or face to face, you can come here with colleagues to discuss matters, with friends to joke with them, with your partner or soul mate to make plans, or sometimes even on your own to do some thinking.

The Grand Visconti Palace is the ideal place for your professional meetings, conferences, presentations, banquets and events. The 12 meeting rooms bear the names of the city gates of Milan, many of them have natural lighting and all are equipped with the latest most sophisticated systems for audio-video support, WI-FI connection, videoconferences by satellite, and a control room/simultaneous interpreting booth. The comfortable rooms have a capacity of from 10 to 260 delegates and 1000 seats in total.
