Europe opens first seven-star hotel

The first seven-star hotel in Europe will open its doors in the northern Italian city of Milan under an initiative of Italian hotel operator, Town House, according to the ANSA news agency. The hotel, which is likely to be located in the heart of Milan, will probably open in December 2006.

Town House has decided to go beyond the traditional hotel image and create an epitome of hospitality. The luxurious new hotel will provide personnel who will anticipate and satisfy all desires and requirements of its clients. The staff will include butlers, babysitters and drivers.

Town House hotels also combine modern technologies in a limited number of rooms and suites. The Town House 12 hotel, recently opened in Milan, offers only 18 rooms and one suite.

Dubai currently hosts the unique seven-star hotel, Burj Al Arab.
