Speronari Suites: the new suites a few steps away from the Duomo, Milan

A new hospitality project dedicated to international guests: the new Speronari Suites, 22 elegant rooms and apartments in the centre of Milan


Designed by Angus Fiori Architects, with interiors by Francesca Attolini, the suites stand out for their metropolitan style and comfortable furnishings. A brainchild of Paolo Catoni and Martino Curti, from Hotel Solutions, who thought that it would be perfect to combine Speronari Suites and the bistro El Porteño, an ideal combination that was missing in the center of Milan.


The building, a 19th century palace, has been renovated respecting Milanese architecture. The original layout of the façades has been preserved but they have been enriched with new openings: full-height next generation windows that flood the rooms with light while offering soundproofing performances.


Also for the finishes the choice fell on neutral colors and materials. Floors are in large wood slabs, and the stairs are made of different varieties of marble and stone. The corridors have textile floors with tatami effect, and in some rooms wood is the predominant material. Colors are warm and neutral, ranging from shades of grey and beige, with hints of yellow and ochre, as in the Milanese tradition.

As to finishing materials, the choice fell on local resources and on companies that meet sustainable manufacturing requirements.

Speronari Suites: tailor-made furnishings

The interiors, tailor-made by Francesca Attolini, are characterized by soft and comfortable fabric coverings in warm colors. The furnishings of the rooms are not homogeneous but characterized by Dedar fabrics in different colors and patterns. Guestrooms may be even more minimal, furnished with wood and metal, for a perfect metropolitan style.


Common areas, such as the hallways, are illuminated by Kreon recessed lights. The rooms house lamps by Zava and Tom Dixon, which supplied many accessories as well.


To complete the offering, Speronari Suites is also equipped with a gym and a spa, with Technogym equipment and Starpool sauna.


Open not only to the guests, the Argentinean bistro-restaurant El Porteño Gourmet combines the Argentinean spirit with the Milanese charm.
