“Ultra cool, 21st Century designs in a super-central location. A classic facade encases a minimalist industrial aesthetic - burnished brass, polished concrete, glass and iron. Bedrooms are decked with black stone and shimmering brass bathrooms. A hip destination for those with creative sides. ”

Hotel Review

Named when it opened as ‘Italy’s most avant-garde hotel’, STRAF continues to make design waves several years on. Behind the façade of a classic 1880s building, expect an ultra-modern, minimalist space where an industrial design aesthetic dominates, involving liberal use of burnished brass, polished concrete, glass and iron. An uber-cool crowd of fashionistas, designers and media-types love the 66 bedrooms with their black stone and shimmering brass bathrooms and audio visual gadgets galore.

See What They Say

An unconventional building with an intellectual design in the heart of Milan: 64 rooms and suites combine two philosophies which are unlikely but successful partners: extreme hi-tech functionality with a minimalist feel and the warm, intimate atmosphere of rooms designed with elegant, innovative materials like quarry-rough slate, burnished brass, concrete and iron.
