Liam and I decided to spend a long weekend in Milan whilst the girls are on Summer Camp. We ummed and ahhed about where we should stay, but I am so glad we went for the Mandarin Oriental. Whilst it is on the pricey side it made up for it in that you know exactly what you are going to get: five star service! The bedroom was perfect: huge bed with fresh white linen, fantastic spacious bathroom with great shower, bottled water, turn down service and aircon. The best was the location: everything we wanted to see was in EASY walking distance – this not only saved us time but money in taxis and no arguments 😂!

We also enjoyed their beautiful courtyard where we could enjoy a great buffet breakfast – the cappuccinos were AMAZING! We also dined at their bistro one night and I have found my new favourite starter (focaccia, tomatoes, buffala mozzarella and prosciutto on top!). All in all, when we return to Milan, we will stay here for sure.
