The GrayJust steps from Milan’s world-famous Duomo, the Gray offers 21 rooms designed by Guido Ciompi, the man behind Gucci boutiques worldwide. Ciompi’s playful style is immediately apparent from the five-seat, fuschia swing in the lobby, and continues through to the eclectic rooms, which feature a mix of large, suspended beds, jungle-inspired decor, and rich textures such as padded-leather furniture and faux animal pelts. As well as the usual gadgetry, rooms also feature round Jacuzzi baths and gorgeous shower areas made from marble, wood, and glass.
Manned by youthful, black-uniformed staff, the hotel’s other perks include contemporary Mediterranean cuisine in the trendy Le Noir restaurant, cocktails aplenty in G Bar, and snuggly sofas on the Aria roof terrace.
