Chose this hotel on the basis of other Tripadvisor reviews and for god value in an expensive city. Room was smaller than it looked in the photos, but clean and comfortable. The location was good - although the nearby piazza was being dug up in preparation for Expo next year - and made an interesting contrast to the central areas... More

Booked this place on trip advisor and booking.com recommendations and was not disappointed. It felt like coming home each day after sightseeing etc. warm friendly staff and delicious breakfast. Book a courtyard room because you won't get the noise from the revellers on the restaurant strip on the canal. Good air con and wifi, windows will open , there's a... More

We were coming to Milan to visit the monthly antique market and decided to book this hotel based on its location and the previously posted reveiws on trip advisor. First, if you are visiting the antique market, this is the BEST hotel for location! The market is quite literally right outside the front door of the hotel. So it was... More

A great little boutique hotel set on the side of the Naviglio Grande. The service was excellent & friendly. The staff were very accommodating and it was a real pleasure to stay here. The Naviglio is a hub of activity in the evening and has many bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. We were concerned about noise from the... More

Maison Borella is a lovely little hotel in Navigli district Milan. As many other reviewer we were very satisfied with this agreeable little hotel. That the hotel offered free (flat or sparkling) drinking water was another nice touch. This is what we found exceptional. When we arrived in Milan a Taxi strike had started. The day we had to leave... More

I have just returned from 3 nights at the Maison Borella, I travelled with my husband, two children aged 15 and 4, and another couple. I booked this hotel because of its location in the heart of the good nightlife of the Navigli district, and within reasonable walking distance of the Duomo and other tourist sights. I booked 3 rooms,... More

Here on work, I was initially cheesed off to not be able to book a room at the Nhow Milan. Even less happy to find that i was staying at a hotel overlooking that stinking eyesore that is the (nearly empty) canal. Nevertheless, what a lovely little hotel this is. There is a courtyard inside, I'm not sure if all... More

This was our first. Time to Italy and Milan, and using other travellers reviews I booked into this hotel. I was not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and happy to chat in English which was necessary due to our poor Italian skills. The room (and hotel) was very clean, was able to be very dark if you needed it... More

To everyone who is travelling to Milan, I would strongly recommend this hotel. The location is amazing on the canal. It’s very romantic at night, and there ate lots of restaurants around it. You will have to walk a bit to the main square of Milan, but the walk is totally worth it as you pass by some of the... More

After 16 days travelling, 3 cities visited what we just need we found at Maison Borella: Tranquility, nice place, good service and attention. All the staff are highly motivated to create an environment for happiness. Honest breakfast, everything 100% fresh. Charming rooms with nice bath. Located on a hype village, surrounded by artists, restaurants and antique shops.
