The Monza racetrack is located in the beautiful park of the Royal Villa and the Hotel de la Ville is situated just outside, overlooking this unique show. You will find everything you need in this small gem of a 4 star hotel:

  • An elegant and relaxed atmosphere.
  • An experienced multilingual staff at your service.
  • Rooms and suites furnished with an attention to detail that we can only define as unique.
  • An award-winning in-house restaurant and famous throughout Monza: the Derby Grill.

For this reason, the only deluxe hotel in town is chosen every year by the best Formula 1 teams during the Grand Prix week. When you talk about GP in Monza, it’s common that the name Hotel de la Ville is strictly connected to it. The three days at the beginning of September head the footlights also towards this historical hotel that, as usual, prepares itself to welcome managers, mechanics and worldwide-famous drivers.

It’s not unsual indeed seeing knots of people gathered outside Hotel de la Ville entrance hoping to get an autograph or a picture with one of their idols. During the past years, one of the symbols of the city of Monza has seen a series of champions, so that Hotel de la Ville became “the Formula 1 drivers hotel”. Among the most important names we remind Michael Schumacher, Felipe Massa, Niki Lauda, Alain Prost, Kimi Raikkonen and David Coulthard.
