It was everything one could ask for as far as a hotel is concerned-especially if you're not accustomed to a Four Seasons-type location. As far as I we were concerned, the Berna set the bar in terms of what a hotel should be. The breakfast offerings were plentiful and quite satisfying to say the least! The staff was quite courteous and accommodating! We were able to leave our large bags during a side trip to Riomaggiore which was quite a relief.
The location is within walking distance to the train station which is nice should one wish to take a daytrip and visit some of the marvelous towns surrounding Milan.
If at all possible, splurge for the junior suite which was sizeable especially in comparison to your typical European.
