Originally built in the late 17th century, the monastery came to life through the ambition of Sister Rosa Pandolfi, a descendant of the noble family Pontone di Scala who had taken up residence in Conca dei Marini.

Esteemed for its authentic simplicity typical of monastic life, the Hotel Santa Rosa became one of the 39 castle hotels of Italy. The hotel’s motto was “At each window, the sun."

In one of Italy’s most fashionable shopping districts, find a 15th-century convent transformed into an urban sanctuary of luxury and comfort. A dramatically reborn convent with a mere 118 rooms and suites, this hotel is steps from Milan's couture houses and financial district on the exclusive Via Gesù between Via Montenapoleone and Via della Spiga. Historians soon unravelled the story of an old convent that had been converted to a private residence in the late 1700s, when many of the features of the ancient church and cloister were hidden. Before long, frescos and stuccos emerged – many dating to Medieval times – and today they are part of the distinct décor that characterises the Hotel, including the spectacular soaring ceilings of its most favoured guest rooms.
