The Lobby, Anderson Hotel, Milan ©Solange Hando
A member of the Starhotels based in Florence, the Anderson is as stylish as Milan itself. Step into the lobby and you may well rub shoulders with top Italian designers. They love it here.
Red curtains and parquet floor contrast with darker colours in the adjoining library where a spray of orchids adds a touch of class.
