Full of flair, this boldly designed boutique hotel is a canvas for Milan’s creative side
With its bold murals, striking sculptures and colourful palette, Galleria Vik is part hotel and part modern art gallery. It taps into Milan’s creative spirit, turning bedroom walls into canvases and corridors into exhibition spaces. Each room and suite bears the hallmark of a renowned artist – meaning no two spaces (or stays) are the same.
There’s the ‘Rendo’ Deluxe Gallery Room, with its vivid primary colour blocks framing the bed. And the Adriano Pompa Gallery Suite that has a mezzanine-level bedroom beneath a Renaissance-esque mural. Two restaurants complete the picture: Vikissimo for dawn-to-dusk food and drinks, and I Dodici Gatti that’s dedicated to wood-fired pizza.
Further afield, Milan’s best-loved landmarks, restaurants and art galleries circle Galleria Vik. In fact, there’s something to see on every via that runs outside the hotel. Take in the Gothic Duomo, Palazzo Marino and Teatro all Scala, stopping off for a plate of Risotto alla Milanese and Aperitivo. And be sure to tour the galleries that inspire Galleria Vik’s artistic side: San Fedele, Massimo de Carlo and Osservatorio Fondazione Prada.
Enjoy your stay!
