Set in the burgeoning neighborhood of Via Tortona, this industrial-chic (and cheeky) property features 246 rooms, multiple event spaces and an uber-cool restaurant and bar–all of which attracts the design, fashion and art crowd.

  • The color therapy showers
  • The two-story penthouse suite with views of Milan’s canals, which is a great place to host a party
  • The hotel’s striking and unusual meeting and event spaces


The über-cool Nhow (with sister properties in Berlin and Rotterdam), designed by architect Matteo Thun, is a good deal, and a lot of fun (even its website is entertaining). Located in a former factory in the now up-and-coming neighborhood of Tortona, the 246-room property is an avant-garde showcase and exhibition space of graffiti, contemporary artists and furniture designers from, among others, Dilmos, Milan’s top modern-design gallery. Not surprisingly, it has become the hotel of choice for design-savvy travelers in Milan for the International Furniture Fair. Potential guests should know that some room categories have bathtubs that are not separate from the sleeping/living areas.

Who Should Stay

Hip travelers who gravitate toward a minimalist aesthetic and appreciate an irreverent sense of humor will feel right at home at the Nhow hotel.
