A design hotel next to the Duomo.

Designer Vincenzo De Cotiis previously operated a studio and gallery in central Milan, where he showcased one-off pieces produced from reclaimed materials. Then, in 2004, he opened Hotel STRAF in a building located only a stone’s throw from Milan’s iconic Duomo. The 19-century palazzo was transformed into a work of art characterized by highly tactile materials; from bare cement walls to oxidized brass coatings and large carved paintings lined on bedroom walls. Each room is fitted with custom-designed pieces, in an effort to avoid the cut-and-paste look of traditional hotel interiors. A select number of so-called “relaxation rooms” also include massage chairs and aromatherapy treatments.
