We are excited today to have a guest blogger from China, the fashion blogger Anny Fan writing for Italian Talks – our very first post in Chinese and English! Annie recently stayed in Milan at our very own Baglioni Hotel Carlton and shares her impressions below of the city and our hotel…
I totally agree with my friends when they say that the purpose of travel is not simply to tell people I have been somewhere, but to fully experience that place. By keeping your eyes and mind open, you discover different traditions and understand the people behind them, maybe even finding extra meaning in your own life.
Anny in Milan
On this visit to Milan my schedule was packed, but fortunately the hotel made my life easy. Although I was tired after attending the fashion show, I felt very relaxed from the first moment I stepped into my hotel. I really enjoyed the cozy and welcoming atmosphere.
Baglioni Hotel Carlton really was the ideal place to stay for my fashion-oriented visit, and the next time you come to Milan, I strongly recommend you stay there too!
I always try to experience the lifestyle of the local people during my trip. This is very important to me.
The location of Baglioni Hotel Carlton in the centre of Milan is excellent, close to the Duomo and Montenapoleone. It is very convenient for anyone who loves shopping.
Apart from the location, I really appreciated my experience at Baglioni Hotel Carlton in the way it offered me access to an authentic Milanese way of living. This helped me understand what the real European lifestyle is about.
The hotel’s design is itself an artistic masterpiece, expressing Italian style through a combination of modern and classic elements which perfectly reflect Milan.
The hotel has a very elegant look, with every detail reflecting good taste and luxury.
I really love this big balcony, with a view over ancient Milan.
There is also a very comfortable open lounge area where you can relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
Don’t forget to check out the hotel’s SPA.
The hotel also provides a range of personalized services to meet the different needs of its clients.
The hotel is already very active and popular on Instagram.
Baglioni Hotel Carlton is a popular choice among fashion bloggers which gives the place a real fashion vibe. On your next visit you might even meet one of them in the hotel!
Caffé Baglioni is quite unique and I always see many fashionistas in there, enjoying the art and fashion of Milan.
I enjoyed my lunch here too. All the dishes are thoughtfully designed and based on the concept of healthy eating.
Baglioni Hotels – A Short History
Mr. Roberto Polito bought his first hotel in Tuscany, where he first launched Baglioni Hotels.
Right now Baglioni Hotels have 9 unique hotels in different cities, each located conveniently in the heart of its destination. Six of them are in Italy, two in France and one in London – with another to be opened next year in the Maldives.
You can feel the authentic Italian style of each hotel. I have to mention that in the Baglioni Hotel Regina in Rome, there is a unique suite – an apartment of 590 square metres, which allows you to gaze over the eternity city with a 360 degree view. A very unique and awesome experience which I hope to try one day!
I wish you all the best on your travels!
