Just entering the hotel, you realize it is just a hostel. Rude lady at the small reception, small stairs, tiny elevator. The bathroom was large but very basic, with static shower head. Breakfast is just coffee and a croissant. WIFI is 5 euros per day. I wonder how they got their 3 stars; this hotel is much below the standards... More

You can't beat the location and the staff especially Jimmy was very nice and helpful. They are doing some remodeling so we ate breakfast which was only a croissant and coffee across the street. Every hotel we stayed in had a lovely breakfast room with a huge array of food, but not Hotel Rio. However, it is right on the... More

I was surprised at the comments about small rooms and old building. This Europe! Yes hotel rooms are small and buildings are old. The rooms were compact, clean, and represented good quality for the money. Excellent staff and perfect location.

The review of this hotel would have been much better had it been written days ago. However, since we have just been charged twice for the hotel on two different credit cards I am most unhappy. Not only that, when booking.com called them to query about the double charge they said they discussed this with us and we approved the... More

Fantastic location at a great price. Rooms and bathrooms are small and basic. Hotel itself is small, but you can’t really beat the price and the fact that it’s literally steps away from the Duomo. It’s perfect for a short stay and for those who just need a place to sleep in the heart of the city.

They put me in the worst room with a sofa bed. I'm here right now. In the corner of the room, there's a moldy box, with extra blankets. I guess my room is also used as a storage room.. In the middle of the room, they're a weird table, totally out of place. The walls are most from moisture. This... More

central hotel, stayed previously, not went downhill and breakfast is good. Really close to Duomo square and cathedral. Milan is quiet and lots of places close early. Hotel needs some cosmetic tidy ups, lick of pain in some of the rooms but basic for single travellers.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
