After a six-month renovation, Four Seasons Hotel Milano has reopened in the heart of Milan’s fashion district, unveiling contemporary interiors conceived by designer and architect Patricia Urquiola.

A 15th-century convent turned sophisticated garden retreat, Four Seasons Hotel Milano is a haven in the centre of Milan’s Fashion District. Fall asleep under frescoes in high-ceilinged rooms, dine on authentic Italian dishes on the airy veranda and recover from a day of shopping and sightseeing with a massage in our sleek, modern Spa.

In the lobby, guests can expect a new, lighter paint job, bronze inserts and mirrors—all intended to “interplay with the original frescoes and period features of the former convent.” There’s also a variety of new hanging lamps, table lamps and floor lighting. Furniture classics from Italian design brands decorate the areas.

Through the lobby, guests reach Zelo, the new restaurant helmed by Executive Chef Fabrizio Borraccino. During the day, the restaurant changes its identity to Zelo Bistrot, and the expanded outdoor area allows for seating both inside and out. Zelo Bistrot offers a menu of light dishes, while in the evening, Zelo proposes both an à la carte menu as well as a tasting menu of the chef’s creations. The menu, Four Seasons says, has been completely redone to reflect guests’ evolving tastes and Chef Borraccino’s focus on Italian cuisine and the best local producers.

Stilla, the new bar is positioned to the left of the lobby. The circular bar is appointed with cognac leather armchairs and velvet seating and sofas in shades of red and dark green. Guests can also sit outside in the hotel’s garden. The new menu created by Bar Manager Luca Angeli offers innovative new signature drinks and has a focus on ice craftsmanship. The menu has everything from Aeropress American coffee to a classic club sandwich to Negroni Sbagliato. Health-conscious guests can look forward to light plates and salads.

The Camino—the Italian word for fireplace—has also been transformed into a lounge with a wine cellar/tasting room. Here, guests can experience sommelier Lorenza Panzera’s wine list while listening to the beats of a DJ seat.

The Four Seasons Hotel Milano’s cloister garden, which hosts seating areas for both Stilla and Zelo, has been renewed by landscape architect and agronomist Flavio Pollano, an expert in vertical green, Botanics and garden design. The garden will also host a new raw bar, where guests can enjoy food and drinks on summer evenings while listening to the tunes of a DJ.
