Stayed here again because of the location. However, noticed that the service has not improved and the room we had was very shabby. The whole place felt tired. We also got the room at the end of the corridor next to the renovation next door. Jack hammers starting at 7.30am! When we asked to change they said they were full!

We spent one night at the Hotel Straf on our way out of Italy. The hotel itself is clean, very modern and "sleek." The design of the hotel is very unique and interesting, but we found the hotel to value more form over function. We can appreciate the beautiful design, but when it takes you 20 minutes to figure out... More

Stayed for 2 nights, booked through Mr & Mrs Smith. This hotel is fantastic value, given the unbeatable position, seconds from the Duomo and more importantly the Metro. The decor probably is not to every ones taste (see the reviews) but I liked it and the room was comfortable and quiet. One small point, the light controls are very confusing,... More

Spent 11 nightsat Straf in Aug and I would say its location is unbeatable. Pretty much of a high end boutique hotel located just steps away from La Rinaceter(luxury departmental store) which i frequent almost every other day since they have good restaurants at the top floor just right opposite Duomo. Taking subway is easy, walking to museums, shopping galleria,... More

Ultra-modern hotel Straf is located just 50 metres from the Cathedral of Milan Duomo and this means that you will live within walking distance from the famous Gallerie, museums, Opera house La Scala and all the fashionable streets of Milan. Trendy boutique hotel, with a very interesting design rooms with impressive prices. View from suites on the top floor opens... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback and comments. STRAF is a design hotel with strong personality and taste by Vincenzo De Cotiis, in my opinion a genius in his job! I would like to tank you for your appreciation and sorry if we have no view, unfortunately in the city centre and on our position it's difficult, but then... More

This place looks fabulous in the photos, but as my teenage daughter said, it is more like a designer B&B than a hotel. Style wise , it is stark, concrete and metal surfaces, imaginative lighting , a well lit bunker, with good beds, difficult to locate powerpoints....but it all takes some getting used to. And this fact, along with absence... More

We have nothing but positive things to say about this hotel. We arrived earlier than the check-in time and were able to check-in straight away. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. The rooms are incredibly modern, which might not be to everyone's tastes, but it was perfect for us. The breakfast was superb, with lovely fresh... More

The Straf is not for everyone. But Milan is a strange hotel town, with a wide divide between ultra luxury properties at almost a thousand a night, to very mediocre cramped places in desperate need of an update. The mid-price category in a decent location is hard to pin down, but this hotel does it for me and is our... More

The location of this hotel - steps to the Duomo - is unbelievable. And it is one of the most reasonably priced hotels in this area. The breakfast was fine - continental, but good selections - and the bed was very comfortable. The room was very ... modern and minimalist in its styling. The floor and walls were made of... More

Great position close to the Duomo and Brera district but ordinary hotel-room comfortable enough but decor drab. When we checked out the clerk billed my partner for the cost even though she told him that the cost had been billed to her card already (card number taken on check in and went through even though we were told would not...
