In a first for the brand in Italy, Hyatt Centric Murano Venice and Hyatt Centric Milan Centrale have opened. The hotels have 119 and 141 guestrooms, respectively. 

The Venice property, Hyatt’s first hotel in the city, is located in the tourist destination of Murano, a historic glassmaking district. The property itself is built within the walls of an ancient glass-manufacturing furnace.

The hotel is a 20-minute private boat ride from the airport, and a 10-minute boat ride to central Venice. Wellness facilities at the hotel include a sauna, Turkish bath and fitness center.

Hyatt Centric Milan Centrale is in the Porta Nuova district, within walking distance of the metro and Central Station. The spa at the hotel include a Roman bath with jetted tub, as well as a sauna, Turkish bath, salt cave and a relaxation room. 

The two hotels bring the number of Hyatt Centric branded properties in Europe to five, joining Hyatt Centric La Rosière, Hyatt Centric Gran Via Madrid and Hyatt Centric Levent Istanbul.

“The acquisition of the two properties has been a perfect opportunity to follow up on the long-standing teamwork with Hyatt,” said Matthias Lowin, managing director of German Feuring Group. “After the announcement of the Hyatt Regency development in Düsseldorf and the Hyatt Place development at Frankfurt-Airport, we are very excited to be an integral force behind the introduction of the Hyatt Centric brand to Italy.”
