We think green

Make the planet happy, do as we do and save the planet!

 

“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children”

This ancient proverb is the inspiration for our system of green values and from where our journey starts.

 

Once upon a time …

 

Our story begins in 2000 when fate brought us, Daniela and Alessandro, together. Already experts of the tourist sector, after joining our hearts together for life in 2002, we opened our hotel.

But it was after having our triplets in 2008 that we decided to try to safeguard, in our small way, the planet that welcomes us, openingEco Hotel La Residenza in 2010.

Promoting sustainability

 

We take many small eco-sustainable actions every day: from water and electricity saving, from the promotion of separate waste collection to the use for eco-certified cleaning products that are 98% biodegradable in 24 hours, from the choice of biological ingredients on our menus to offering our guests eco-certified courtesy sets.

EcoHotel La Residenza is the first eco-sustainable hotel in Milan to offer an eco-friendly service certified with 3 Eco-Leafs by the EcoWorldHotel association, guaranteeing an eco-sustainable service and offering our guests high environmental quality along with a biological food and wine experience that is attentive to all  dietary requirements.

To assess compliance with the requirements by applicant accommodation facilities, EcoWorldHotel uses DNV GL Business Assurance Italia s.r.l. , one of the most important certification bodies in the world, as an independent third party.

We also promote sustainable mobility and the use of ecological means of transport.  When you stay with us leave your car in our car park; you will do yourself a favour, avoiding the stress of the traffic and and you will do the planet a favour. There is an underground station just 300 metres away and many bike sharing points scattered throughout the city. If you can’t live without the car, why not rent an eco-friendly one?

Also, on request, we offer a transfer service; we will come to pick you up at the airport or station and bring you directly to the hotel.
