Excelsior Hotel Gallia

An architectural gem of the city

An architectural jewel of the city, the Excelsior Hotel Gallia, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Milan has always been considered one of the most exclusive hotels in the country. Formerly known as Palazzo Gallia during its humble beginnings in 1932, the hotel was conceptualized as an international meeting point to host both high European standards, “travelers in transit,” and city gatherings, thanks to its strategic location at the entrance to Milan.


Fully renovated by renowned Milanese architect Marco Piva, who preserved the defining elements of its character  by making them all the more beautiful, the hotel takes its guests to a parallel universe, offering just the experience you’d expected from the fashion capital of the world. The design elements help cast the spell of timelessness, with a style that weaves together the past, the present moment, and what’s ahead in the future.


The majestic Made in Italy distinction of the rooms is striking, realized exclusively by the most eminent Milanese designers and artisans, including Poltrona Frau, Cassina, Fendi Casa, and Luce Plan, to name a few. The lighting fixtures were designed to blend with natural light and create unique chromatic combinations that reflect on the marble floors of the lobby. Upon entering the halls, you become an involuntary observer, instinctively taking a moment to stop and admire the beauty in every single detail that leaves an unforgettable impression.


The gathering areas designed by B&B Italia reflect the Art Deco of the 1930s, without sacrificing elements of modernity. The Gallia Lounge & Bar on the ground floor adapts to your daily schedule by transforming from a classic Italian bar to an exclusive meeting point for an aperitif. The adjacent Gallia Restaurant offers a breakfast able to satisfy even the most selective palates thanks to the chef’s availability, three buffet tables with BIO and Km0 products, a line of detoxifying pure and mixed juices, gluten-free products, and homemade pastries that would make even the most strict fitness addicts consider switching lifestyles.


The cherry on top at the Excelsior Hotel Gallia is the fantastic Terrazza Gallia on the 7th floor, which overlooks the central station, offering a unique glimpse of the most beautiful places in the city to its visitors. Sipping an aperitif at sunset and stopping for dinner is an unforgettable experience, whether it be the attention and care of the staff or the view of bustling life in the square down below, the sign of time flying by. Also, there is the multi-award winning Shiseido Spa, with its 1000 square meters covering the 6th and 7th floors of the hotel, ranking as the largest in Milan and one of the most beautiful in Italy. Make sure to check out the cigar room, with its selection of Cuban distillates and cigars of the highest quality, and their wine cellar with over 300 carefully selected labels and accomodations for up to 12 people.


Among the 235 rooms and 51 suites, bold beauty reaches utmost expression in the extraordinary Gallia and Katara Suites, the latter being a favorite destination of international stars. With its 1000 square meters of breathtaking luxury,  the rooms rank as one of the world’s most exquisite suites by winning the “World’s Leading Hotel Suite,” the highest recognition in hospitality. Dazzling, spectacular, and one-of-a-kind. The Excelsior Hotel Gallia is definitely one of the institutions that have made a significant contribution to the aesthetic revival of the city.
