We arrived in Bergamo airport via Ryan air and quickly bought tickets for the bus transfer into Milan Centrale station for 12 euros each. It being a Friday evening the traffic was fairly heavy and instead of the transfer taking 50 minutes it took and hour and 5 minutes but that was understanable on a Friday evening especially as the area had just had a heavy rain storm. We arrived in Milan Centrale and if we had taken a correct turn we would have arrived at the Grand Doria Hotel after a six minute walk. Sadly we turned the wrong way (mainly in part to a review on this site that told us to walk right at the Star Hotel. You dont. There is a Star Hotel on either side of the road. Walk between them and it's left from the station car park). Once we arrived (45 minutes after getting off the bus) we were presented with a beautiful hotel. It's been around since the turn of the 20th century and has kept that look whilst being descretely updated for the 21st century. We checked in quickly and was told that the resturant was closing in ten minutes so instead we bought some supplies from the Carrfour Extra supermarket which is located across the road and to the left. The hotel room itself was lovely. A massive bed, plenty of wardrobe space, a lovely bathroom with a toilet, shower, bath and bidea and all decked out in marble. The room had a good size television mounted to the wall opposite the bed (around 42 inch tv is my guess) and was in high definition. The breakfast, which was included, was excellent. Cereal, cheeses, figs, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage (hot dog, european, style) juices, fresh coffee and tea, croissants, and plenty of other pastries. The choice was huge. We spent the day in Milan and then in the evning looked for somewhere to eat. Around the hotel choices were limited and closer to the centre Milan was heaving with people so we chose to eat in one of the two resturants the hotel had to offer. We ate in the Cafe Doria. My Wife had a delicious pasta dish and I had the veal escolope with a citrus sald and we shared a green salad. We alos had a large bottle of water between us and I had a very nice glass of red wine suggested by the maitre de. The total for this was 55 euro and was very reasonable. The maitre de even chased after us after we left to make sure we took the rest of the bottle of water with us. He was a lovely man. I highly recommend this hotel. It's location is good. Far enough away from the centre of Milan that you don't have to suffer with the noice of the city and close enough that it's a three minute walk to the nearest Metro station (2 euros for 90 mins of unlimited travel) and a 6 minute walk to the main station. It's beautifully kept, the staff are very friendly and it's well worth it's four stars. Normally they charge 285 euros per night but we managed to get the room for two nights for 250 euros. A bargain and well worth it. Highly recommended.…
My husband and I stayed at Dorian Grand in August and what a top notch hotel. The room was very clean , the staff was very friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was the best…. Oh those croissants and fresh juice. Thank you to each and everyone at the Dorian Grand that made our stay memorable. We will always cherish this place and refer friends and family to stay here. We will surely return. We were also leaving very early the next day and they had a care package prepared for us to take along. Grazie
Love this hotels location its good for metro and rail. they have restaurants and shops close by. the rooms are clean and spacious. breakfast was good and the staff are nice and helpful. Only negatives is by the bed it has not got usb port to charge my phone and it does not have an iron. Overall i recommend this hotel more so for location it is a 6min walk to coach station to pick up or drop off bus to the airport.
We loved everything about this place especially it’s ideal location. It’s close to Corso Buenos Iris, one of the main shopping areas in the city, and the Central Train station. Staff are extremely nice and polite. We’d consider staying there next time we’re in Milan.
Rude staff, dirty shower and expensive for what you get. Much better hotels in the surrounding area. Breakfast is ok but I cut my finger on a broken glass which wasn't noticed by the staff which added to the displeasure of staying at this hotel.
Horrible hotel. I am confused how this is shown as a 4 star hotel. This is a 2 star hotel at its best. Not only does everything look old and dirty and you could even see that they patched up mold on the walls by simply putting wallpaper on the walls. It is disgusting. Also, A/C works very slow so you’ll definitely be hot for a long period of time. This is also a tourist trap. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING. Coke is 14 euros. It is absolutely ridiculous.
Excellent business hotel located only two blocks from the Milan Centrale Stazione. (very walkable). Clean room. A/C. Nice onsite restaurant. Friendly staff. We were leaving early before breakfast and they made us breakfast boxes to take away. Powerful shower.
This hotel was great. Within easy walking distance of the station. Had a great night's sleep. The bed was super comfy and the pillows were lovely and soft and smelt great! All the staff were very polite and helpful. The breakfast buffet had a great selection too. We were only here for one night but I would definitely stay here again.
Maybe not quite as close to Milano Centrale as it looks on the map, backpackable, but if I were rolling suitcases here from the station it might be a bit annoying. That said, decent hotel, nice room, powerful shower, superb breakfast. We got a standard room with breakfast for < €100 and it felt like excellent value.
We recently stayed in June 2022 and it was just what we needed. Lovely, stylish hotel, right by the Milan Centrale train station. Our room overlooked the main road, but luckily we didn't hear any noise at night. The hotel was clean and our room was made with toiletries and essentials topped up daily. Staff were friendly. Breakfast was lovely. It was on the small side but perfect for a weekend or city break. Would definitely stay again.
