I recently had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Milù in Florence during my Florence and Bologna itinerary, and it was an incredible experience. As soon as I stepped into my room, I was blown away by the spacious and stylish interior.

The hotel offers stylish and modern rooms for guests to stay in and excellent amenities, including a rooftop terrace with amazing city views.

The modern furniture, including a cozy sofa with a blanket and two inviting red chairs, created a welcoming atmosphere that made me feel at home.

The high ceilings and wooden floors added a touch of elegance, while the beautiful rug brought warmth and texture to the space. I loved the bookshelf filled with intriguing reads—it was the perfect spot to unwind after exploring Florence.

The attention to detail in the decor was impressive, from the colorful cloth art on the partition to the charming vases and potted plants that brought life to the room. And let’s not forget about the glass-walled walkway—it was such a cool architectural element that added an extra wow factor!

When it came to the bedroom, I was delighted by the crisp white linens and the pop of color provided by the yellow-green blanket and throw pillows.

The natural light flooding through the large window created a bright and cheerful ambiance, making it a joy to wake up. The view of the neighboring building added a lovely touch of local charm.
