I wish we could give this a 0, pretty much the worse place we have ever stayed. About the only thing it has going for it is the location which is only a 5 minute walk to the metro stop. The staff seem desperately unhappy which isn't surprising, given the environment they are working in and the 'rules' imposed by... More

Visited Milan with another 3 of my friends. Booked for 4 persons and we got the whole room of 4. Walking distance to many attractions and Duomo is one of it. Room was clean. You can cook in their kitchen if you want, but with very limited cutlery. The bed was too small. Kind of dangerous if sleeping on the... More

Before I made a reservation there I knew that it wasnt the best, but I never thought it would be the worst. They give you sheets and blankets and you have to put them on beds. If you want to leave your luggage in the luggage room after you check out ( because you still have time in the city... More

I didn't enjoy my stay in this hotel. The staff is fine (not super-nice but not rude either), the location is good (close to the metro), but the rest.. is not good enough. Our room was super-small and even though there were lockers in the room, everything else you had to pay for. They gave us linens, but the blankets... More

Hard to find, just door without name. Room was small, just table, box for clothes and fridge. Without breakfast, but shop not far from hostel. Close to metro station Moskova. Cheap and suitable for one night.

Never forget this is a hostel so I am reviewing it from that perspective with the right expectations and requirements. First of all, the location is great (2 metro stations from Duomo and only a 2 minute walk from the hotel to the station). Also, there is a 24/7 Carrefour express in the vicinity which is very convenient. The room... More

Stayed here for three nights with my two sisters. The metro was only 3 minutes walk away and 5 minutes walk to the supermarket. The staffs were very nice and friendly.

Staying in Brera

Neighborhood Profile
Brera
Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an excellent mix between history and modernity, where tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca (galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
