“Our visit to Milan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

For us the main draw of staying at the Brunelleschi is its location which cannot be beaten. Literally around the corner is the fantastic Museo di Nove Cento and then just on from that the Duomo, Galleria et al.For its location in central Milan it offers good value for money. The rooms are spacious and well sound-proofed, if a little dated( including the steam-driven TV), but there again one does not come to Milan to sit in and watch TV. Breakfast service is efficient and a very workmanlike affair and the overall quality of breakfast is good. The hotel has a small bar just off the foyer with an excellent service and welcome after a day touring the sights. Clientele were a balance between business folks and tourists. Recommendations for a bar - try the Aperol Bar overlooking the Duomo and in the Galleria the Locanda del Gatto Rosso for good food with a quality wine list and reasonable Milan prices.

It's very close to the Duomo, very short distance. There are restaurants across the hotel, a pharmacy and some small shops. I stayed at the 8th floor, room was bigger than I expected. I actually like it a lot. Some people in the concierge/front were also nice and ready to help out. They offered medicine when I needed it but instead ask them to write the translation and one even offered to go with me to the pharmacy.
Metro is also nearby but you wouldn't need it much unless your going out of the city. From the hotel it's really a short walk and all shopping is in the Duomo area.

My husband and I stayed two nights at the Brunelleschi Hotel in Milan in May 2014. The hotel is well located, just a short walk from the Duomo and Galleria. We were given a very nice room. It was large and included a sofa as well as several chairs. It was quiet and clean. We had a late lunch in the hotel restaurant and it was not very tasty - sliced white bread was not expected in Italy! The breakfast was worse; we couldn't even drink the coffee. There is a very nice wine and gourmet shop just steps from the hotel on the same side of the street that we can recommend, and a very nice sandwich shop facing a bus stop in the next block. The trip into the city from Malpensa Airport is quite long, but the Metro and trains are very convenient and easy to use.

We recently stayed at the Brunelleschi Hotel which is litteraly 2 minutes walk from the famous Duomo and Galleria. Being in the business district the area is quiet in the evening and at the weekends. The hotel rooms are very confortable, clean, spacious and soundproofed. The hotel staff are very friendly. The breakfast buffet in the morning is very good and generous !
As a tourist, there really is not much else to see in Milan so we were pleased to be right in the heart of it !

Room Tip: The hotel does not have a car park but you can park in a public car park (Autosilo Diaz) which is no...

Comfortable and welcome place. Good stop in the heart of the city near Duomo. Helpful staff, cosy beds, good bathroom with all necessary things, very good meal, nice wine in the bar. For sure I'll be back.

stayed at the Hotel Brunelleschi 14th - 16th May 2014. A trade show was on while we where there so I suppose prices increased a bit, but it was still expensive 200euros a night! The drinks in the bar weren't much better either 18 euros for 2 whiskys. The room was a smoking room (507) and was clean and tidy. Breakfast was good with a wide variety of things to choose from.
A little tip if travelling to Milan.
Get a hotel quite a way out of the city and use the underground to get to all the sights, its cheap, fast and on time, excellent in fact. And the further away from the city centre you are, the cheaper your hotel.

Ideal spot close to duomo & the shops. Breakfast was fabulous service excellent from all the staff. The decor downstairs is stylish, lovely Art Deco staircase BUT the bedrooms are in need of a refit comfortable but tired! The blind in our room opened at an angle and it had very dark wallpaper & curtains.
