7-Star(!) Hotel Slated for Milan’s Galleria Vittorio Emanuele

Looking for a new place to rest your head next time you’re in Milan? How about staying a 7-star hotel? That’s no typo – when the Town House Galleria opens later this year, it promises to be Europe’s first 7-star hotel. The only other 7-star in the world is Dubai’s Burj Al Arab. As the eFlyer newsletter reminds us, there is no official global hotel system that awards stars, but hotels classify themselves by “piling on the amenities.”

The new hotel will be housed in Milan’s beautiful Galleria Vittorio Emanuele – above the Prada store, no less – and feature fewer than 30 suites. While pricing hasn’t been set (could be between $1,000 and $2,00 per night, the hotel is reportedly pre-booked for the first 90 days.

Here’s more information from eFlyer: “The Town House group currently operates two other hotels in Milan, both four-star and costing between $380 (for rooms) and $600 (for suites) a night. The Town House Galleria, however, will be considerably more elaborate — and pricier. It’s being developed with a consortium of high-end brand names in Milan, some of whose designer products will be prominently featured. Guests will have their own individual butlers and, if needed, nannies. Cars and drivers will be at their beck and call. Caroli Health Clubs is part of the consortium, so private trainers and in-room massages could well become part of the package.”
