Upon arrival early in the morning, we didn't receive a great welcome. Rooms have a lot of wear and tear, everything is old and not attractive anymore. Location is perfect at the entrance of Galleria Vittoria Emmanuel. For me this is not a 'Small Luxury hotel' or a five star hotel. The atmosphere of the hotel is very dark and... More

It is ocated at only 100 meters from il Duomo. It is a boutique hotel that started quite well years ago. I have been at the Gray many times but this is my last time. The bathrooms need urgent maintenance, they have bathtubs with no protection so, if you decide to take a shower you flood the bathroom, it is... More

The Gray is a very stylish and highly sophisticated boutique hotel just 32 steps beside the dome and 34 steps a way from the famous shopping mall. It takes 3 min to the main entrance of the scala and the lavish shopping roads are just around the corner. No wonder the central location demands a price that is above oridinary... More

The Gray is a small luxury hotel with a friendly atmosphere where the staff is friendly and accommodating. Rooms, a modern European style, are well appointed despite the limited space of the building. Internet access is easy and unlimited. Breakfast is also very good. In addition, like most of the other reviews, we really appreciated the hotel is located in... More

Well, first of all, you cannot bit this location. It's very close to the Duomo, with a direct view to the Scala and Galleria Vittorio, and you are right in the center of its all, easy to find your way around and get anywhere from that spot. Seriously luxury at its best. Little hotel, unique modern design. The round jacuzzi... More

A nice quiet small hotel right on the Duomos doorstep All the rooms are completely different so don't be shy to ask to see a few. Ours had a sauna in it. Others have a living room or a jacuzzi bath. The front desk is most helpful and knowledgable

Location perfect especially for first time visitors to Milan. We chose as a stopover to be central to the shopping district. We found for the price the hotel's room size quite small and missing the personalised service usually received from boutique hotels. To be fair we were rushing in a city we know quite well so may have missed the... More

We booked this hotel through Mr & Mrs Smith so foolishly I didn;t check TripAdvisor first. This is not a low cost hotel and although the location and service can't be faulted - the same cannot be said for the room. I had paid extra to be upgraded to a better room but the following were problems : 1. Building... More

Stayed here one night on our first day in Milan and we loved it! Arrival was quick, efficient and staff helped us adjust our restaurant booking as the place didn't speak English. Our room was fantastic. We were 3 friends so we needed a bigger flat and boy did we get it! Our room even had our own gym in... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A gem of a hotel in the heart of Milan, where stunning contemporary design meets sophistication and comfort. The Gray, with just 21 individually decorated rooms, is an intimate property full of style, an d includes an atmospheric restaurant, a cosy bar and bedrooms, some of which have their own private gym. Smart, witty design elements throughout add to the sense of elegance and comfort. Deep chocolate browns contrast with crisp creams, geometric lines are softened by colored lighting effects, while bright colour accents,such as the suspended fuchsia swing in the lobby, enliven the ambience. An afternoon of sightseeing could not be easier as the Duomo is literally at the end of the street and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is in front of the hotel. A five-minute walk takes you to the fashion district around Via Monte Napoleone. Return to the hotel for delicious Mediterranean cuisine in the restaurant before heading to the opera.The Gray is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property. ... more   less
