Property Overview

After undergoing a thrilling renovation, Portrait Milano preserves its historic structure while transforming it into a modern hub for hospitality, entertainment, and culture at the heart of Milan's fashion district. This hotel is housed within a former Archiepiscopal Seminary, recognized among the oldest examples of Lombard baroque architecture in the world. The property overlooks the city’s Piazza del Quadrilatero, which – at 32,000 square feet – is the largest public square in the fashion district, home to luxury boutiques, restaurants and a state-of-the-art spa (from late 2023).

Agent Tips

  • We highly recommend a stay in one of the hotel's Garden Suites, providing guests unbridled views of this contemporary mansion's lush greenspaces.
Rooms + Suites

Contemporary life in a historical place.

Portrait Milano is home to seventy-three rooms and suites that welcome guests to an oasis of privacy. The interior design, in a red or green palette, is inspired by the city’s 1950s parlors. Rooms may boast private sitting areas in the brightly glazed loggia, views of the lush garden, or urban balconies. The Portrait Suite is a particularly well-appointed accommodation, featuring a living room with a curated library of art and lifestyle books, a walk-in wardrobe, and an oversized shower and bathtub.
Restaurant + Bar

10_11 celebrates northern Italian cuisine and the culture around shared meals.

Nestled in the heart of the Quadrilatero, Portrait Milano's 10_11 bar, garden, restaurant, and colonnade beautifully accentuate the former Seminary's architecture with exquisite and refined details. Inspired by the robust flavors of northern Italy, the authentic menu at 10_11 evokes cherished memories of shared meals. Guests can enjoy afternoon sweet tea in the library, an aperitivo under Piazza del Quadrilatero's vaulted columns, or an espresso in the glazed dehors overlooking the secret garden. Whether indoors, basking in its cozy, intimate setting, or enjoying the gardens, guests will find themselves immersed in the Italian aperitif tradition, exploring Milan's classics.

Portrait Milano's other restaurant, Beefbar, is a culinary concept that mixes some of the world's best meats with strong cosmopolitan flavors. Its interiors pay homage to the early 20th century’s “Milanese” design.
