Maison Borella

Top choice hotel in Navigli & Zona Tortona
Image by

With balconies overhanging the Naviglio Grande and striking vintage furniture selected by collector Raimondo Garau, this canalside hotel offers a touch of class in a dedicated bohemian neighbourhood. Converted from an old casa di ringhiera (railing house), its main rooms are arranged around an inner courtyard draped in ivy and offer charming features such as parquet floors and elegant sculpted panelling.

Ask for the spacious privéè rooms for a trifle more privacy. Downstairs, you can also dine canalside beneath a beautiful coffered ceiling on chef Davide Brovelli's contemporary Lombard cuisine.
