“Really bad hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

Although its location is great, grand plaza hotel is a poor hotel. The lobby is quiet nice but the elevators are so old and terrible, and i was afraid to get on this elevators. The room is too small and the bed is too big so there is no place to move in the room. The bathroom is the worst bathroom i have ever seen in my life, cant describe what was my attitude about this terrible bathroom

this is my third hotel in milan and it is by far the best one. good sized rooms, light atmosphere in the lobby. clean. and brilliantly located just around the corner of the duomo. only free wifi is missing.

The hotel is literally 3 minutes from the Duomo. Really well situated. The staff are friendly and helpful. We were there in August when it's not very busy, but the staff say they are very busy the rest of the year.

The rooms are a good size - even the smaller one we were moved to when we discovered a leak in the bathroom in room 426 (this room was enormous!) The rooms are clean and it's easy to tell that this was once a very elegant hotel. It looks a tiny bit old but I would stay here again. The wood and marble are beautiful.

Room 426 is enormous ! We were assigned this room first, however there was a leak in the bathroom and they promptly moved us to to room 424 - which was still a good size for European hotel rooms.

We did not breakfast here - too expensive. We opted to go to a local cafe for coffee and pastries.

The bar drinks are expensive too .. i would go to a local cafe or bar for the atmosphere rather than the hotel bar. The chips and pretzels served with the drinks were stale..maybe it's because there were very few guests..?

Room Tip: Room 426 is enormous ! We were assigned this room first, however there was a leak in the bathroom an...

Get a cheap Internet rate for a short city visit. Great location a minutes walk from the Duomo. Our room was old fashioned but nice bathroom. Very clean. Arrived early but they accommodated us two hours before their stated checkin time. Good continental breakfast buffet.

The location is fabulous. The breakfast is very bad, if you like eggs, bacon etc it costs very much and is not good. it is absolutely not a 4 star hotel. We got a small room were the shower was broken, we notified the staff about this and they said we had to change room. We went out for the day, came back late, and they still hand`t fixed a new room. We asked again the next day, but it was a new staff, and they had`n heard anything about this. They then finally gave us a new room. This was a lot larger, wich we liked, but still it had the same old feel to it. The staff was not very helpful, the food was terrible, the beds were hard and the bathroom was not pleasant or delicate. Would not stay here again.
