Because we were only able to spend one night in Milan, we picked this hotel because of its proximity to both the Duomo (a short walk away) and the express train to the airport. It is a lovely place. Our room had a perfect terrace on the third floor that immediately inspired us to put together an al fresco dinner... More

With only a small brass plate alongside the entrance to an entrance shared with flats and offices this is quite difficult to find.Once up to the first floor reception however it turns into a smart boutique hotel spread over several floors. Our rooms on the third floor were small but had generous balconies.Location is very central and walkable of most... More

This is a charming hotel in a prime location of Milan. This is close to the main streets, metro, the duomo, the Brera district and restaurants. It's also nice not to feel like you are in a typical, big hotel in a major city, but all the modern comforts are readily available. Wifi worked great, breakfast was lovely, service was... More

The location of the Antica was ideal in that it was just one short block away from the walking street in Milan and midway between the Duomo and the Sforza Castle. It was easily within walking distance to the trolley and a hop on/hop off bus which is ideal to get acquainted with the sites around the city. The staff... More

Like Milan, the hotel hides its wonderful qualities. Before a large old door, up one flight so stairs lies an oasis in the middle of Milan. The room was small, but comfortable and clean. I picked it because of the terrace. I had no Idea how great a location it was. Slice of heaven!

Just got back from a damp and rainy Milan, very warm though at about 20 degrees. This hotel certainly has position, about 5 minutes from La Scala and 10 minutes from the Duomo. It has character too with stone steps and balustrades from the entrance and rooms distributed throughout the upper floors of a very old building. The service from... More

We were touring the Italian Lakes but had always wanted to see Da Vinci's last supper in Santa Maria Delle Grazie in Milan, so we booked 2 nights in Milan at the end of our tour. We had been to Milan 41 years before and therefore, wanted something central. The hotel is within a short walking distance from La Scala.... More

We booked this hotel after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and as always were not disappointed. This hotel is in the perfect location for walking into the centre of Milan. When we arrived at the front door we were not sure about the look of the hotel but once you press the intercom and you are greeted and taken upstairs... More

Small sign on old palazzo indicating hotel within - up a few stairs, TINY elevator to Piano Nobile: reception. Very stylish reception area and breakfast room. Our room had a fabulous terrace with umbrella table and beautiful planting. The room itself was smallish; this was compounded by a lowered ceiling which was 'fabulously' decorated/painted a la Klimt. (An adjacent room... More
