Since this is the only hotel I have stayed in in Milan I cannot compare it but I was disappointed. It took us about 40 minutes to walk there from the central railway station with our luggage which saved us the cost of a taxi. On arrival the reception was cold and unfriendly. Our room was small but clean. The... More

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel San Francisco in August 2014. Clean and friendly. Well located. Restaurants and gelato bars! close by. It was hot at night when we were there and the air con was a blessing. Agree that breakfast in the garden is a lovely thing to do here. Great way to start the day. Easy and cheap... More

Had to be in Milan because of work and know about how ridiculously expensive Milan hotels are. I found this at a really cheap rate and was anxious to see how it really was and this place blew me away. It is a little outside of the center but 5-10 minute walk in or close to the Loreto metro line.... More

Not far from dowtown, do not expect luxury but a very good compromise. room ok and staff very kind. recommended for those who travel with low budget. Parking facilities in front of the hotel no need to pay a parking lot!!!( as long that you leave your car in the morning)

Very clean room. Very friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Very good wi-fi connectivity. I was able to work remotely every time I had to. The neighborhood around the hotel is very nice. It seems you're part of Milan's daily life, and not stuck in an artificial touristic area. It's very close to Politecnico di Milano. The only downside is that the... More

We had a one night stay in Milan before we flew back to the US. I booked Hotel San Francisco through booking.com. It did not disappoint - very modern (tasteful) decor in the lobby, bar, and rooms. A very nice breakfast is included - exceptional value!

The hotel is about 10-15 minutes walk from the Milan central train station. You can get a shuttle bus for 4 euro (book on line) to Bergamot airport from the central station. So the location of the hotel is very good for travel purpose. You can also walk to the center of the downtown of Milan along the main shopping... More

The hotel is within walking distance to train station and restaurants. Rooms and common areas are really nicely refurbished to give it a modern feel. Loved our balcony and a generous sized shower, biggest shower on the trip. Breakfast was really great with a selection of hot and cold food. Great find.

A wonderful, friendly hotel. Rooms are sparkling clean and have new bathrooms. Best breakfast you can imagine, including the home made pan cakes! Happy to give directions and to recommend places to shop and eat. They have a small lift and that helps when you have heavy luggage. The hotel is in the University area of Milano and within walking... More
