TownHouse Duomo

Milan - Italy


A visit to the fashion capital of the world demands a stylish hotel to match, and this exclusive boutique hotel more than measures up.

Townhouse Duomo enjoys a spectacular setting, in a beautiful old building overlooking Milan’s most famous square, the Piazza del Duomo. It’s a small hotel, with just fourteen exquisitely styled rooms, plus a buzzing bar and a restaurant overseen by Michelin-starred chef Felice Lo Basso.

The central location means you’re just steps from attractions including the Duomo cathedral and La Scala, along with the fashion district and Milan’s famously fabulous shopping. It’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for something with a real ‘wow’ factor, and provides an ideal base for exploring Italy’s most LGBT-friendly city.

Nearby Attractions

Townhouse Duomo is the only luxury hotel on the Piazza del Duomo, meaning you’re just steps from Milan’s strikingly beautiful Gothic cathedral and the Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele II shopping arcade.

Other nearby attractions include La Scala opera house, the Pinacoteca di Brera gallery and the Castello Sforzesco, an imposing medieval fortress and museum.

Milan’s fashion quarter, the Quadrilatero della Moda, is just a short stroll from the Duomo. Here you’ll find boutiques showcasing the hottest local designers and plenty of upmarket cafés, while just next door is the Porta Venezia district, home to some of Milan’s best LGBT-friendly nightlife.


There are just 14 rooms and suites, decorated in a sophisticated and contemporary style. All rooms are equipped with a flatscreen satellite TV, WiFi, mini bar, espresso machine and safe, and the suites have a private balcony with unbeatable views of the Duomo.

Hotel guests enjoy complimentary access to the Highline Galleria, a rooftop walkway above the Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele II that connects the Piazza del Duomo and the Piazza della Scala, with spectacular views.

The top floor of the hotel is home to the Felix Lo Basso restaurant, which opens onto a lovely terrace and offers refined Italian cuisine by Michelin-starred chef Felice Lo Basso. Terrazza Duomo 21 is a sophisticated lounge bar, where stylish locals and hotel guests can sip Martini cocktails and enjoy some of the best views in the city.

The Duomo

Milan’s iconic cathedral took over 600 years to complete, and is the fifth largest Christian church in the world. While the interior is impressive, it is the outside of the building that is truly spectacular, adorned with over 4,000 statues, gargoyles and sculptures. The best way to appreciate the incredible craftsmanship is from the rooftop, accessible by lift or a spiral staircase. Up here you’re surrounded by a forest of saints and bishops, with magnificent views of Milan’s skyline, both ancient and modern.
