Hotel and guestrooms
Ideally located in the charming Via Andegari, in Milan’s most prestigious district, only steps away from “La Scala” Opera House and the most exclusive boutiques, Mandarin Oriental, Milan is a stylish and intimate urban retreat, inhabiting four elegant 18th Century buildings.
The restoration project was conceived and completed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel Interiors, a well-established Milanese firm of international interior designers. To create a harmonious design across the four buildings, leading architect Antonio Citterio blended oriental touches with Milanese style.
The hotel offers 72 guestrooms and 32 beautifully-appointed suites.
Each room has a contemporary, uniform interior design, but a different layout and city view, with some overlooking the hotel’s inner courtyards, others, rooftops and the remainder, surrounding historic streets.
The hotel boasts two ‘Speciality’ Suites, distinguished by original interior designs and created as a tribute to two great Masters of design, Piero Fornasetti and Giò Ponti, and a Presidential Suite featuring delicate colour scheme, rich textiles and splendid carpets combine to form a sophisticated environment that reflects Milanese style with a touch of the Orient.
The hotel features a two Michelin starred fine-dining restaurant, Seta, where guests are invited to savour Executive Chef Antonio Guida’s gastronomy and a bar-bistrot,Mandarin Bar & Bistrot, where an eclectic choice of contemporary cuisine and a range of cocktails for aperitivo and after-dinner are offered in chic surroundings.
Mandarin Bar & Bistrot
Open from 8am to late, Mandarin Bar & Bistrot is the hotel’s beating heart where the atmosphere evolves gradually from tranquil urban oasis by day to vibrant nightspot after dark.
Its outdoor spaces feature lounge sofas, coffee tables and soft lights, while indoors the walls are covered with black and white geometric mosaic patterns, which create stunning lighting effects together with glassware, smoked ceiling mirrors and other reflective surfaces.
Seta Restaurant – 2 Michelin Star
Awarded with one Michelin star only four months after the opening, followed by a second Michelin-Star in November 2016, Seta Restaurant is located in the hotel’s second courtyard and it extends indoors on three of its four sides. Wide glass windows help inner and outer spaces merge into one harmonized whole. Visible through these large windows is the kitchen, so guests can watch chefs at work.
Antonio Guida’s culinary offering for this gourmet restaurant represents the quintessential core of his gastronomic philosophy at its best. Seta’s menu is the compendium of his knowledge and expertise and features dishes prepared with refined techniques that enhance the superb quality of the ingredients.
