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...

With the Duomo and La Rinacentre (department store) at your doorstep,the location of this hotel is perfect.The rooms are uber cool featuring stone or bronze bathrooms and are larger than most. Although the breakfast is basic, ask for the hot option menu-its good value. Surprisingly for city hotels, the wifi is included. WIFI included Definitely a fabulous stay!

This is purely personal, the hotel felt like a dark, concrete, hard edged box. A lot of black e.g. the bathroom, the floors, the general décor. The breakfast room where you sit has stools with no back, no cooked items to eat and 'trendy'. On the up side the location is great, beds good. The staff are friendly but for... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comment, as per my previous reply to a similar review I must say that somethimes being an unconventional "design hotel" could be a double bladed weapon as we say over here. I am sorry you did not enjoy too much the design of our bedrooms and ambiences, however I hope that at least our... More

Hotel οf special quality. There is perhaps the closest hotel to Duomo, where you can-only-walk to go. Hotel staff very polite, despite being something eccentric. Postmodern style in the bedrooms. The walls were black. A painting on the bronze stylish. Bathroom and hallway filled with mirrors, no mirror in the room. The gold band, like bronze. Toilet paper in “design... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, it is very much appreciated. As per being a design hotel we have to stick to a concept, I may assume that sometimes this is not perceived as a traditional "feeling" when it comes to arrangement of space and perhaps unusual materials for an hotel room. Having said this, we hope you appreciated... More

Excellent hotel in a prime location! The website images are a true reflection of the hotels sophistication, style and cleanliness. Staff are all extremely helpful, knowledgable and friendly. Breakfast is a substantial selection of cereals, fruit, cold meats, cheese, pastries, yoghurt, juices and toast. Despite the central location it's very quiet inside. This hotel is a must when in Milan!... More

Where to begin. The room is ultra hip, modern and trendy. There were robes in the room and that was an unexpected surprise. The room was clean, and we got a good nights sleep. In all honesty though, we were exhausted. We drove many many hours from Switzerland and the last hour we had to navigate thru the streets of... More

Straf is a very nice and modern hotel. Location is perfect, right next to the Duomo. We loved the boutique design and atmosphere. Staff is very friendly and welcoming and breakfast is excellent. Two issues that made our stay less than perfect : First, the beds were uncomfortable for us since mattresses are extremely hard. Second, due to ecological awareness... More

Very nice, clean, modern and perfectly located hotel next to the Duomo. Cool style and nice staff. Can recommend this hotel very much. Only drawback at the moment (june1014) is the heavy construction going on in the building next door. Be prepared that the work starts at 6:30am (no construction on weekends) and involves hammering. Earplugs are favorable but wont... More

Stayed for three nights on business. Room was good, in good condition, comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and hotel staff very helpful. Provided excellent recommendations for restaurants. Position is unbeatable . Only gripe is struggled to work out how to switch off bathroom lights - the switch concealed behind a panel . Would stay again
