During the week, dark suits come and go in E.c.ho's lobby (the acronym stands for Ecological Contempory Hotel). On weekends, however, the hotel comes alive with patrons sporting more relaxed wear. Whether you come to Milan for business or pleasure, this hotel is prized choice for its strategic location, as it is close to the central train station and five minutes from the Duomo. It is favoured just as much for its philosophy, attuned to sustainable development issues.
Here, nothing is wasted, and everything is recycled. Electricity is supplied by solar panels, wastewater is recycled, and even the contemporary and refined decor favours recycled materials.
As for the restaurant, it serves seasonal menus showcasing organic vegetables from a nearby garden. Long before the 2015 World Expo, which advocated 'energy for life', the hotel committed itself to sustainable development. Today, its message is still very loud and clear.
