Luxury Collection Hotels

Welcome to Excelsior Hotel Gallia, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Milan

A 5-star luxury escape in Milan.

The Excelsior Hotel Gallia stands at the beating heart and transit nexus of Milan, Italy’s progressive capital of fashion, design, gastronomy and commerce. Our 5 star luxury hotel's original building–a majestic Art Deco-era landmark built on the western edge of Piazza Duca d’Aosta, adjacent to Stazione Centrale–officially opened in 1932. A modern steel-and-glass tower designed by Marco Piva has been added to create a unique impression, blending past and present to forge an extraordinary synergy. Our Milan hotel has long been a standout for its remarkable spirit and its prestigious pedigree, with luxuriously appointed guest rooms, fine dining, a world class spa and, of course, unbeatable proximity to not only Milan’s attractions but also all of Northern Italy.

Many of our family hotel's rooms hold direct views over the Piazza Duca d'Aosta, which, in the summertime, turns a pale gold as clouds of rondini (swallows) flock overhead.

Milan Up Close

The Gallia Family

The founder of our hotel, Carlo Gallia, was known to take great and meticulous care of his business; he wanted Excelsior Hotel Gallia to compete with the very best properties in Europe. The Duke of Bergamo called the hotel “truly regal,” which furthered and enhanced its pedigree. As it happens, Gallia had hospitality on his mind from a young age. At only 17, he left home to learn “the art of the guest.” He remained abroad for the next 15 years, working in several different European locales (London, Paris, Berlin, Lucerne, Monte Carlo, and St. Moritz). Upon returning to Milan with a wealth of experience, he founded our beloved property.

Hotel History

Excelsior Hotel Gallia has long been one of the most prestigious hotels in Italy, ever since its official opening on February 29, 1932. Our architectural jewel of belle époque sophistication is a bona fide icon. For decades, it has remained the hotel of choice for Italy’s social elite. Today, that evocative legacy continues to inspire every detail. Stunning architectural features–including an impressive domed roof, attention-grabbing interiors and a modern new wing–have been cleverly styled by the local designer Marco Piva. The updates offer contemporary accents offset by timeless Milanese artisanal pieces and covetable Italian furnishings.

The owner of the hotel, Carlo Gallia, took lavish care over all the aspects of the business because he wanted to equal the best hotels in Europe. The Duke of Bergamo called the hotel 'truly regal' and it immediately became the most prestigious location in Milan.

Carlo Gallia, at the age of only 17, left the Gallia family to learn 'the art of the guest' and remained abroad for the next 15 years. He worked in several different European countries alternating tourist resorts and cities (London, Paris, Berlin, Lucerne, Monte Carlo, St. Moritz). Once affirmed in his profession, he then founded Excelsior Hotel Gallia.

The Hotel's Design Story

Led by the award-winning Milan-based Studio Marco Piva, Excelsior Hotel Gallia’s interiors feature distinct references to the city’s stylish lifestyle. There are nods to the timeless elegance of the Art Deco era, as well as flashes of sleek modernity. The feeling is enlivened by carefully curated furnishings made by Italian craftsmen.

Designer Furniture

All of Excelsior Hotel Gallia’s furniture is Made in Italy, with several pieces produced in collaboration with Milanese artisans and designers. Discover our unique collection of more than 500 art pieces designed by Studio Marco Piva exclusively for the property, too. These include paintings, sculptures and photographs.

floor, overview

Alongside the magnificent, iconic Katara and Gallia suites, the hotel offers an outstanding selection of 51 suites divided over several suite categories. Atelier suites have been designed to recall the mood of creative workshops and Signature suites have been conceived as art galleries with theatrical use of illumination, colors and artwork.

Panoramic suites feature a spectacular large sliding panel with beautiful photos of the historic hotel façade. Executive suites are particularly suitable for today's business travelers.

Terrazza Gallia has been fitted out in the finest detail by B&B Italia. From the bar counter - a stand-out piece created from melted aluminium - guests may walk out onto the terrace to admire the elegant design of Fendi Outdoor, Knoll and Varaschin, overlooking the Milanese skyline.

The restaurant has been created as a theater. Food is the main character surrounded by black, matched with bronzed steel which recalls the Art Déco style of the hotel. Admire chandeliers from La Murrina and the Tattoo lamp by architect Marco Piva showing a dramatic play on light.
