While we only stayed at the Hotel San Francisco one night before heading back to the States, it was a very good choice. Contemporary in feel and furnishings with a very adequate breakfast buffet, the hotel is convenient to the metro for accessing Milan. (However, if memory serves, it was a bit of a haul from the train station.) The... More

We spent 4 nights in the middle of March in hotel San Francisco. Rooms were cleaned every day, new towels changed as well. The windows did not insulate that well, however there was A/C in our room so we could heat the room to our liking. Also since the windows had only one layer of glass, the street noise was... More

Nice hotel, reasonable price, clean rooms and kind staff. Only 200-250 meters to nearest subway station. There are markets close to you. You can buy anything you need. Rooms are quite and have enough comfort. If I visit again I stay there once more.

I spent three nights at the Hotel San Francisco in Milan over Christmas 2014. My room was small but very clean, modern, and with the coolest lighting (shower had a color-changing LED). As it was Christmas, there were only a few other guests. The breakfast is simply wonderful: fresh baked cakes and pastries, pancakes, eggs, cheese, meats, yogurt, cereal, etc.... More

We stayed at Hotel San Francisco twice on our trip to Italy; once on our arrival and at the end of our trip for our departure back home. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. The first room, on the ground floor, had a high ceiling and one large window/door opening up to a terrace and a lovely garden. There... More

Had an amazing experience with some very helpful staff members. Were happy to help me out after I had been lost for hours. The hotel is affordable and very clean and tidy. Managed to get a really good much needed sleep here. Thank you for the hospitality!

I stayed in this hotel for two nights. The single room I stayed in was about average size for a single in Europe. The bathroom was a bit small, and the shower was tight, but everything was clean. The room was a bit dark, and showing a little age in the walls, but nothing to detract from my stay. The... More

Probably one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in, and I've stayed in many. On the good side, the location is good and within easy walking distance to the metro, all the designer shops and the beautiful Duomo. Most of the staff are approachable and friendly. A special heads up to Carlo, the receptionist who gets a special 5... More

Great buffet breakfast Very clean room and nice modern bathroom (with cool effects in the shower - seriously, there's a button - press it!) Friendly stuff, who always provided us with information and anything we needed (taxi service must have been fixed from what was mentioned in past negative reviews). - hotel staff were always happy to call us a...

Good hotel, although not so easy to reach from the airport. Instructions on the website was clear with regards to the bus to take from airport into central Milan, however, reaching the hotel from the metro station with luggage proved to be a bit of a challenge. However, upon reaching the hotel, the staff were very friendly and allowed us... More
