Queen Elizabeth


Italia autentica

Elizabeth Lifestyle Hotel Milan seduces all senses: sight, via the bold selection of contemporary art; smell, via an exclusive hotel fragrance by Laura Tonatto and La Bottega bath products; and taste, via delicious breakfasts in the serene courtyard. Rooms are decked out with pretty pastels and bold, boiled-sweet hues, including blueberry, lemon and peppermint; illustrations, prints and photographs add to the sartorial sugar. Throw in a pleasing price tag and a prime city-centre location and you’ll be reprimanding yourself for not coming sooner.

Packing tips

Bring an appetite for osso buco and a thirst for negronis, camparis and co. Milan won’t disappoint.


Canine companions on the small side (weighing in at six kilogrammes or under) can come too. Doggy bowls and beds are available on request. See more pet-friendly hotels in Milan.


Little Smiths aged from one to six are welcome, but don’t expect lots of family-friendly extras; it’s very much designed for adults.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Sun or shade: in the courtyard garden, the choice is yours.

Dress Code

Mellow Milanese: lashings of black, plus gem-bright accents.

Hotel restaurant

Some say breakfast is the most important meal of the day – and Elizabeth agrees, serving delicious buffet feasts in the pretty courtyard, where plants grow in leafy green abundance. For lunch and dinner, you’ll need to call upon Milan’s medley of dining options. If hunger pangs strike between meals, raid your in-room minibar, stocked with soft drinks and snacks, both sweet and salty

Last orders

Breakfast is served from 7am until 11am.

Room service

There’s no formal bar as such, but instead guests can help themselves to the mini honesty bar in reception. Since there are no bartenders, you can make your cocktails just the way you like.

Elizabeth Lifestyle Hotel Milan
Corso Italia, 11/a

The hotel has a prime city-centre location in the peaceful Carrobbio neighbourhood, a five-minute walk from the Duomo and many other cultural calling cards.


Most major airlines fly to Linate Airport, which is seven kilometres away (a half-hour drive).


Central Station is just 15 minutes from the hotel by car, with services connecting to other Italian cities.


If you’re coming with wheels, the closest public parking spaces are 700 metres from the hotel (a hefty €25 daily); drop your luggage off first. Milan’s historic city centre is pleasingly compact and the trains are excellent, so you might be better off sans vehicle.


Hop on the Metro from the train station – and jump off at the Missori stop on the yellow line, going towards San Donato.

Worth getting out of bed for

Kick back and relax at boutique basecamp – perhaps with a drink from the honesty bar in the reception area, where you can also befriend staff and fellow guests if you’re feeling sociable. Rewind several centuries at Castello Sforzesco on Piazza Castello, which is one of Europe’s largest citadels. Following an extensive rebuild in the late 19th century, it now houses several of the city's museums and art collections. Continue your Italianate education at the Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology on Via San Vittore. Sprawling across a vast space (around 40,000sq m to be precise), this museum in downtown Milan charts developments in science and technology from Leonardo’s time onwards.. Flex your plastic at Milan’s landmark Galleria Vittorio Emanuele: Italy’s most iconic shopping mall, housed within a four-story double arcade in the city centre. Beg, borrow or steal tickets to Teatro alla Scala, the city’s opulent red-and-gold opera house, where some of the world’s best sopranos, tenors, contraltos, etc, have raised their voices to the heavens.

Local restaurants

Grab a coffee from the view-toting rooftop terrace at La Rinascente department store, which reckons it’s the best in the world (you’ll need a caffeinated pit stop after all that shopping.) Londoners may already have visited Princi in Oxford Circus; now try its original Milanese incarnation, with outposts at Via Speronari, Piazza Venticinque Aprile, Via Ponte Vetero and more.

Local bars

Take your chicest swimwear, gymwear and sunnies with you to Ceresio 7, Pool Restaurant on Via Ceresio. This fashion-pack hangout spans a gym, two pools, two lounges and a ravishing restaurant.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this budget-boutique hotel in Milan and unpacked their panettone and postcards, a full account of their Italian city break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Elizabeth Lifestyle Hotel Milan

Elizabeth has just enough extras to make you feel spoiled while you’re here – pretty courtyard, interesting art collection, delicious breakfasts, helpful receptionists, an honesty bar and colour-pop rooms – but not so many that you fail to ever venture out. It’s a lesson in balance and judgement. Factor in that wallet-friendly price tag too, and you’ll leave feeling like you got more bagna cauda for your buck. Of course, Milan has more than enough attractions and distractions of its own to keep you busy, and Elizabeth’s prime city-centre postcode puts many of the city’s cultural and culinary calling cards on your doorstep. Eat, drink and make merry, like a Milanese.
