Cut out the most laborious bit of travel (especially if you’ve arrived with a raft of garment bags): make use of the hotel’s unpacking and packing service. If you need to while away some time, procure the bar’s backgammon set or play on the vintage arcade machine. If you dig the back-in-the-day design, pick up a few statement pieces (longboards, lamps, chairs…) from the boutique, or ask the owner to name a price: some of the room’s furnishings are for sale.

Our favourite rooms
The Comte Trossi room, an homage to Italian racecar driver Carlo Felice Trossi, will inspire petrolheads to do some victory laps then jubilantly spray a bottle of champagne. This stylish pit stop has collectible cars and a vintage repair kit, and slick styling keeps it from looking kitsch. The Maisons – the hotel’s apartment-style stays – have a Mad Men air; our pick is the Wicket room, for its 1970s cocktail bar and tweed sofa.
Ensure you arrive with the essential gents' kit: a pair of polished brogues, an elegant belt, cashmere socks, a Mont Blanc ballpoint and linen handkerchiefs.
The concierge (good man) can arrange personal shoppers and trainers, and in-room massages, alongside any grooming you may desire.
Small pets can stay for €15 a day, as long as they get along with beloved resident staffy, Pina. Bowls are provided on request. See more pet-friendly hotels in Milan.
Late nightcaps supercede nappy changes here, but <i>bambini</i> are welcome. A baby cot (free) can be added to all categories, and some Dependance rooms and Maisons have sofa beds (€20 a night for children aged 3–12, €40 a night for guests aged 13 plus).
