Expert review of Townhouse 31

A house-party atmosphere prevails at this charming boutique hotel.

A Small Luxury Hotel of the World, this delightful boutique hotel in a restored 19th century mansion is a little way from the centre, but goes out of its way to create a house-party atmosphere. It’s charmed its way into the address books of many fashionable people who love its winning mix of hospitable informality. There are several other Townhouse hotels in Milan (33 – next to 31, minimalist 12, and the superchic Townhouse 8).

Location: 

The hotel is a little bit out on a limb, in a residential district east of Porta Venezia and the Public Gardens. There is a bus stop next to the hotel, but it’s about a 15 minute walk to the nearest metro. There are some good restaurants nearby.

Bedrooms: 

There are only 17 rooms, divided into standard, deluxe and junior suites. Decorated in calming neutrals with stronger colours as accents, and marble bathrooms, they are pleasing and comfortable without having a real designer ‘wow’ factor.

Public areas: 

Architectural Digest editor Ettore Mochetti was responsible for the interior design. If he was restrained in the bedrooms, he allowed himself more of a global sweep with the public areas, with Morrocan-style lattice windows, Mexican cacti, and a tented bar in the garden courtyard and Oriental furniture. It could have been a disastrous mishmash but instead, the cool creams and beiges of the surrounding walls and furnishings allow his concept to flourish; travellers of the world do indeed have the opportunity to unite and talk in peace.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast is continental only, but is a jolly affair, laid out at one large communal table, house-party style. They don’t serve other meals, but are happy to offer suggestions and even to order in for you and provide cutlery.

Leisure facilities: 

The courtyard is a great place in which to unwind, but there are no other facilities, such as a gym or spa. However the hotel does have a relationship with the Terme di Milano and can organise treatments for you there.

Service: 

Guests are encouraged to mingle and the owners are usually around, serving breakfast or offering drinks in the courtyard bar in the evening, helping to stir up a convivial atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
