Some hotels are all about the interiors, some the views and others the location. Magna Pars Suites, though, is all about the senses; in particular smell. Housed in a former perfume factory in the heart of Milan’s fashion district, it is chic and elegant and oh-so-fragrant. A striking glass-fronted exterior gives way to modern design before softening up with a hidden enchanted garden at the heart of it all. Boasting 39 suites, each named after individual aromas, and a perfume laboratory with many more to discover, Magna Pars Suites makes for one sensual stay.
Step off of the catwalk and onto the cobbles and turn down the quiet little street of Via Forcella to Magna Pars Suites. Here you’ll find a peaceful oasis in the heart of Italy’s most fashionable city and its most fashionable district. Just a few minutes walk from the historic Porta Genova Station and 45 minutes drive from Milano-Malpensa International Airport, you are perfectly poised to discover more of this beautiful country. In the meantime, hit Via Tortona for a wardrobe worthy of an Italian getaway.
An all-suite hotel, you’ll have plenty of space to retreat to after a day hitting Milan’s fashionable streets. The fragrantly-named 39 suites are arranged according to the heights of the trees they are each named after and all face inwards towards the beautiful garden. The result is a beautiful and calming space, designed with the same love and care as would go into designing a home. A subtle colour scheme with brushed oak wood floors and leather and glass accents; it’s one slick home.
Why we like it
Any hotel with a secret garden has us sold. Recognising the importance of a beautiful space in which to relax, the garden at Magna Pars is home to a huge range of flora include three liquidambar trees which shine brightly in their Indian Summer colours. But it’s not just the secret garden that caught our attention – but the secret bar too. Behind a handcrafted copper door, step into Liquidambar and delight in tantalising cocktails and an intimate atmosphere.
