To enter Hotel Viu Milan is to immerse yourself in a world that challenges all the senses. A bold building, spectacularly framed with living greenery and set in the up-and-coming Porta Volta/Garibaldi area of the city, the newly built 124-room property boasts the only hotel rooftop in Milan with an outdoor swimming pool and stunning 360-degree views of the city skyline—the perfect setting for a swim, for breakfast, or for an evening “aperitivo”. Guests and locals alike are also drawn to the culinary wonders of Michelin-star Chef Giancarlo Morelli, whose explosive energy and inspired sensitivity are behind the eclectic and unmistakable “signature” gourmet Milanese dishes at the hotel’s restaurant bearing his name, which offers an exclusive area within the kitchen for 12 people to enjoy an up-close gastronomic experience. Morelli also creates the international cuisine served at the property’s Bulk Restaurant, as well as at the hotel’s Mixology Lounge Garden Bar and its Rooftop Terrace Bar.
Set directly between Milan’s new financial district and the city center—a short walk from the shopping district of Corso Como and The Duomo Square—Hotel Viu Milan stands out not only for its exterior’s spectacular vertical garden, but for a façade featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows that bathe the interior with light. And those interiors are both soothing and surprising thanks to blended colors and textures, including parquet oak wood floors and dark wood that contrasts perfectly with light colors and fabrics, highlighting the hotel’s timeless design and furniture by Molteni. Whether it’s a long Sunday morning brunch on the rooftop terrace accompanied by the live sounds of bossa nova, sunrise and sunset yoga courses, a personal shopper who can steer you to hidden treasures, live DJ sets, or even a dedicated kid’s breakfast table and cookies and milk at bedtime, the Hotel Viu Milan never fails to inspire its guests with sensual experiences befitting this energized city.
