The new Room Mate Milano Giulia opened its doors a few weeks ago, and is just in time for the Salone del Mobile. It is found inside a historic building just steps away from the Piazza del Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, and reinterprets, with a dose of irony, Milan’s fickle yet charming character. The interior was designed by Patricia Urquiola, and is filled with reminders of Milanese life and traditions. The lobby is welcoming, and resembles a domestic entryway more than a common area in a hotel; it has the same pink marble used in the construction of the Duomo. The atmosphere is complete with conversation nooks, small living rooms, bookshelves filled with volumes and souvenirs and a collection of photography by Milanese artists. The 85 rooms are family-oriented and slightly vintage, making the guests want to spend time within them. Room Mate Milano Giulia offers perks that most do not: breakfast is served until noon, and thanks to WiMate, guests can navigate the internet not only inside, but all around the city!
