Christmas is fast approaching, with all its special atmospheres, lights, colors and decorated trees. Christmas is a time for love and friendship expressed by gifts, so that we can amaze the people we are fond of and even spoil them a little. Milan is one of the favorite locations for Christmas shopping in Italy and in this period life in the city is a hectic round of shops and events, evenings at the theatre and good food.
Milan: the city of fashion and fun
Expo 2015 has been and gone but Milan has not lost its international character, with newly developed neighborhoods of Porta Nuova, new museums such as the Mudec, as well as the fashion district and all the usual artistic and cultural attractions.
In Corso Buenos Aires, one of the most popular shopping streets in Milan, which is always full of lights, perfumes and great bargains at Christmastime, you can find a hotel that combines the elegance and comfort of the 19th century with modern technology. This is the Best Western Hotel Galles in Piazza Lima.
Just a short walk from the Metro Station of Lima, the Hotel Galles awaits you with its comfortable rooms, suitable for visitors on a quick business trip as well as for families visiting Milan. Here elegance and design reign supreme, together with careful attention to all the needs of guests and a focus on the details. This is also the case for the choice of refined bathroom fittings, and the Hotel Galles has in fact opted for the taps of the Manhattan line by Palazzani to decorate their bathrooms in the standard rooms as well as in the luxurious “La Scala” and “Nabucco” suites.
EcoFriendly: because the future is in sustainability
Palazzani and the Hotel Galles have thus joined forces to make an important choice for the future of the environment and all of us. You can stay in a “Green Room” the CO2 emissions of which are compensated for and offset by the creation and safeguarding of a green area in the city of Rome. In fact the price of the room includes €2 which is donated to LifeGate and the guests who stay there are given a certificate to attest to this donation together with the normal receipt for their stay in the hotel.
But this is not all, because Palazzani has also installed aerators and flow regulators on the taps and showers of the hotel, which make it possible to save as much as 50% on water consumption. In conjunction with correct practices for separation and disposal of waste and refuse in the hotel and a careful selection of the materials used for the furniture this will ensure that your stay is firmly based on ecological awareness, not just on the comforts and pleasures of an exclusive 4 star hotel.
A spectacular view over the rooftops of Milan
After you have rested in the luxurious beds made by Dorelan and had a refreshing shower using the high-quality bathroom fittings of Palazzani, you’ll be ready to enjoy a buffet breakfast in the restaurant “La Terrazza” which overlooks the city. Here you can taste the delicacies created by Moreno Ungaretti, the young chef of the Hotel Galles who, despite his age, already has extensive experience in the world of high-class catering.
You will therefore be able to start the day with a truly fantastic breakfast buffet and there is no need to worry if you suffer from any allergies or food intolerances, as at the Hotel Galles special care and attention is given to guests who suffer from these kinds of problems.
Finally, after a long day spent shopping and sightseeing, you can treat yourself to a dinner in the restaurant with its spectacular panoramic view. In this way you can savor not only the flavors of a truly excellent meal but also the lights of a new and exciting Milan that never ceases to surprise.
