  • The shopping centre “Il Portello” is in front of Antares Hotel Accademia 4*, with over 30 designer shops...this hotel is a shopaholics dream!
  • Stay in a Superior Room and enjoy a late checkout and a welcome drink to start your trip the right way!

Customer reviews

“Room was lovely - decorated nicely, free phone and spotlessly clean.”

TripAdvisor score

Trip advisorThis hotel won the Certificate of Excellence from the world's leading review website, which honours hotels & accommodations that consistently demonstrate a commitment to hospitality excellence.

Your Destination

There is no better destination in Europe than Milan for a shopping weekend. Take time to visit the birthplace of so many of the famous design houses such as Gucci, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Armani. Walk through the Manzoni quarter to visit the avenues where fashion is created daily, namely on Montenapoleone Boulevard and Via della Spiga. This area has been named "Fashion Square" by the locals and is definitely worth a visit.

Fashion and shopping is not all there is to see and do in Italy, as the city's rich heritage is present at every street corner and on every square. Enjoy visits of the various cathedrals and museums, or simply soak up the atmosphere at an outdoor café, discovering the city like one of the locals.
