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

The San Franscisco is a very well run hotel. Whilst the decor of my small but adequate room may not have been to my taste or particularly swish it was well set up and serviced every day. The bathroom has been newly renovated. It was small but the shower has a choice of 'a really generous flowing 'rain shower' style... More

Hotel San Francisco’s team was welcoming on arrival day and every day. It was nice to “go home” after touring the big city every day. Our triple room was very comfortable; bathroom good size; great shower. The hotel is well located, as previous guests have noted – close to Loreto and Piola metro station. As you walk around the neighborhood... More
