This hotel's 24-karat gold sheets take travel luxury to the next level


Think five-star hotel room and perhaps a roll-top bath, spring mattress, goose-down pillows and Egyptian cotton sheets are up there on your check list (along with some kind of incredible deal securing all this for a steal). However, one hotel in Milan is taking overnight luxury to the next level, with actual gold bedding.

At the TownHouse Galleria Hotel you can literally lie in a bed of gold, as its presidential suite is furnished with 24-karat gold bed sheets.

The sheets are worth a staggering $200,000 (£157,000), and are exclusive to guests staying in the Seven Stars Ottagono Presidential Suite. They’re made from 40% 24-carat gold, rounded out with a silk and cashmere blend. Presumably because solid gold isn’t going to work comfort-wise.

The room also boasts a panoramic view of the hotel’s breathtaking interior, as well as a marble bathroom, glass-encased shower and its own living room.

According to the hotel, the sheets, which were conceived by jewellery designer Federico Buccellati, “restore vitality, courage, and willpower, and most of all, amplify positive feelings.”

A quick site search reveals rates around €5,500 (£4,800) a night for a midweek stay.

And if you’re struggling to find things to spend your money on, you can purchase one of the 100 limited-edition sets for a mere $224,000 (£175,880).

Nice, but we’re thinking the London hotel willing to wheel an entire cocktail bar into your room is more our style...
