Those that have lived or visited Milan will be familiar with the common trope that it’s so hard to find a great hotel in the city. Milan is known as a place that brings creatives from all over the world for Fashion Week and Salone del Mobile, leading to competitive hotel bookings, even some of the simplest are booked immediately. The city’s latest addition, though, is anything but plain – The Sister Hotel is a dark and moody historic jewel box near Milan’s Ticineze neighborhood.
A collaboration between art director Samuele Savio and founder of Six Project Mauro Orlandelli, The Sister Hotel is an extension of the brand’s two existing projects: Six Gallery and the restaurant Bistro Sixième. Located in a former 16th-century convent – inspiring its playful name – the hotel offers nine individually designed rooms including two junior suites and one suite. Designed by Quincoces-Drago in a dark, sophisticated, and bohemian fashion, the rooms have been outfitted with the gallery’s own designs as well as vintage finds, available for purchase.
The hotel will be opening to the public this fall 2019 and will provide Milan with a unique location where design, food, art come together.
