Just over the road from the MUDEC Museum of Cultures, nhow Milan is one of many former factory buildings repurposed for the enjoyment of local and visiting creatives. Situated on Via Tortona, the road after which the area is named, it's surrounded by the HQs of various fashion and design houses, and consequently, the cool bars and restaurants that serve their employees. Just around the corner is Armani/Silos, a fashion-art museum that's a temple to the aesthetics of legendary Italian designer Giorgio Armani.

By plane: there are direct flights to Milan Malpensa from London (1 hour 50 minutes) and Manchester (2 hours 5 minutes). The hotel is a 50-minute drive from the Milan Malpensa. There are also direct flights to Milan Linate from London (1 hour 50 minutes). The hotel is a 25-minute drive from Milan Linate. Book flights to Milan.

Guests here really make an entrance, arriving to a dance music soundtrack as they make their way along a dark tunnel. Emerging into reception - where extravagant, jellyfish-like orange chandeliers hang - is a bit of a sensory explosion. The overall look is a mid-century vision of the future, captured with a rainbow palette.


Staff were endlessly patient when my room key occasionally became demagnetised, and are generally helpful and friendly - there's someone on the front desk 24 hours a day. nhow also offers vehicle hire, from electric scooters to bikes, and there's a gym and Turkish bath.

Rooms are decently-sized and the predominant use of white adds to the sense of space, but it's worth upgrading to their premium offer if you'd like a king size bed. Splashes of orange - nhow's signature colour - are echoed in the bespoke toiletries in the bathroom, which come with excellent rain showers as standard.

Room types: nhow room, premium room, nhow friends & family room, junior suite, penthouse by Matteo Thun, pawtastic pet room

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom with shower, TV, tea and coffee-making facilities, free Wi-Fi


Breakfast at nhow is a standout; as well as the usually cooked buffet plus the cheese and meats generally favoured by European guests, there's an 'AntiOx' selection bursting with superfood smoothies and fruit salads. By night the same large space transforms - with the help of some gauzy curtains - into a more intimate, bistro-style restaurant serving Italian classics with a twist.

Restaurant: creative Mediterranean cuisine, healthy choices. Open daily.

Lounge bar: bar menu and cocktails. Serving all day.
