“Clean and Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

Nice hotel with very easy access to the metro and train station. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Overall the hotel is good value for money.
Desk receptionists could be a little bit more friendly to the clients.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your very kind review. I am really pleased to know that the hotel’s location met your expectations. Right in Corso Buenos Aires, one of the main shopping street in Milan, is ideal for those, like yourself, wish to spend some shopping time in the city. The two roof-top terraces located on the 8th floor of the hotel are very peculiar and offer an amazing and breathtaking view over the city. I will recommend to see the view also in spring and summer as in bright sunny days you can spot the Alps and enjoy a sunbath. Hope to welcome you again soon. Kind Regards, Andrea Vedovotto, General Manager

I have stayed here a couple of times as a solo traveller on business, and chose it initially for it's proximity to the shops, bus and metro. Good prices and It really is in an excellent location, being so close to the Metro. The Metro in Milan is an ideal way to get around. It is easy to use and cheap and will get you almost anywhere in Milan very quickly and efficiently. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable with helpful staff. I would recommend this hotel for your stay in Milan any time.

Room Tip: Can be a bit noisy if you have a street facing room.

Although some minor disappointments which I will mention below, I was thoroughly impressed with this hotel for location, service, value and comfort.
A group of 8 girls stayed at the hotel in a variety of different twin rooms (see travellers tip for a good room below). I had requested a high floor, facing inside courtyard after reading all the reviews. The room and bathroom were very small, although immaculate and refurbished. Unfortunately though, there was a horrible sewerage smell. We thought it may go away so we left the room and returned at midnight to find the smell still very noticeable, if not more so. The room was also at a temp of 26 degrees celcius and only the heater was working. We went down to reception to see what could be done. Stefano was wonderful. He immediately set about finding another room for us even though we had not even asked for one. He apologised that there was only one left on the first floor and that we could change again in the morning if we still wanted a higher room. We were happy in our 1st floor room as it was much bigger!
I engaged numerous reception staff members over the three days we were there, asking questions about restuarants and transportation, to requesting one of their special pillows available, and ALL of them were extremely helpful and very friendly.
Location could not be beat with the metro stop outside the front door and lots of shopping and enough restuarants nearby if you didn't want to venture far.
Breakfast (included) was amazing. Everything you could imagine to eat and drink!
I would definately stay here again and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to all my friends.

Room Tip: Don't waste money on the superior. Classic rooms just as good and the difference in size is min...

Comfortable hotel, room could be a little bigger. Bar in hotel lobby not very enticing, Breakfast very good, staff nice. Would recommend this for short stay in Milan beside the metro big bonus, Hotel is on the good shopping street.

Room Tip: Be aware you can hear the metro underground, if you are a light sleep this might be a problem

Dear Guest,
Thank you so much for your review. I am very happy to know that the hotel’s location matched your needs: few steps away from the underground station Lima and right in Corso Buenos Aires, one of the main shopping street in Milan, is the perfect setting for enjoying shopping and a tour around the city. In the elegant and renovated hotel’s lobby, you will share enjoyable moments: Italian furniture and classical style are the premises for the Galles American Bar. As soon as you walked into the hotel’s lobby, you will spot a beautiful black digital piano for a charming atmosphere. Our staff will welcome you with delicious snacks and exquisite cocktails. Our rooms vary per size, color and style, depending on the type of rooms reserved, being Classic, Superior or Suite. Superior are comfortable and elegant and slightly bigger than classic ones while suite are spacious and large and can accommodate up to 4 people. If you require any further information on your next reservation, please do not hesitate to contact us. Looking forward to your next visit. Kind Regards, Andrea Vedovotto, General Manager

Check-in was a mess from the start and myself and my family ended up waiting in the foyer for two hours waiting for our room to be ready when we were told it would only be half an hour wait. Room was spacious, strange that in an apartment you have to pay extra to rent the plates, cups and normal apartment facilities. Laundry room was provided but most machines were not working and the ones that were took forever to do one load. The pool was cold, but nice. The beds were comfortable but we had no sleep because every time a neighbour closed their door the entire room shook. The people in the adjoining room were so noisy and in and out of the room all night. I finally gave in and called reception at midnight just so we could try to finally get some sleep. Reception were straight onto this, but better sound proofing or logistics would solve this problem too. I would not stay in this hotel again, while the staff were friendly,and location was quite good, it was like a maze to navigate and one staff member had a great deal of trouble understanding my request for a private car to the airport, the next staff member was much more helpful and found my request very easy to understand.

Dear Rachel,
Thank you for your review. We are very disappointed to read your words, knowing that we were not entirely able to meet your expectations. Check-in time is available from 2 pm onwards. However if rooms are not available at the time of check-in, we invite guests to wait in our welcoming lounge with comfortable sofas chairs, internet point available for free and a bar with snacks and drinks. Alternately we offer guests to leave their luggage with us while enjoying a tour of the city or taking a nice walk around the many shops available 2 steps away from the Hotel. At check-in we also ask guests to leave their telephone number so that we can send to them a text message to advise when room is ready. In order to get all the facts straight on what it happened during your check-in time, I kindly ask you to contact me directly at generalmanager@galles.it so I can put things right for you and for other guests who choose BEST WESTERN Hotel Galles for their vacation. We do apologize for the noise coming from neighbors, as we do understand the unpleasant feeling you must had. We try to do what we can to reduce possible noise by having a person controlling each floor’s corridor by night and intervene when necessary. I really do hope you will consider Hotel Galles again for your next stay as I am sure we will be able to deliver the high standard that we are well known for. For any request, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Kind Regards, Andrea Vedovotto, General Manager
