Our family had three rooms here in July. The best thing it has going is the location and value. It is a typical urban Italian hotel with the challenges that brings. Good air conditioning. Breakfast ok. Jimmy was the best worker there. He was very helpful.

This hotel is literally a few meters away from Piazza Duomo. It is basic but very clean and with a lift. Wi-Fi a bit weak but works well enough. Rooms are rather small but to be expected with such a centrally located hotel.

This hotel was in an excellent location at an affordable price. Walking distance to San Marco's and had great restaurants near by. We had a double room on the first floor which I would reccomend if you can not climb stairs as it is only one flight up (there are no elevators). I also requested a room with a bath... More

I spent 3 nights here at Hotel Rio Milan. All the staff are lovely and very helpful. Free breakfast and great coffee.. Air con in all rooms :) Currently under renovation but did not disrupt my stay. When complete it will be beautiful. Would definitely stay again.. Only marked as 4 star because the shower door was a little dodgy... More

The biggest plus is the location, not even a block from Il Duomo and the Galleria, another block through the Galleria to La Scala. I was focused on photography so I was able to conveniently go back to Il Duomo several times under different lighting and it was so convenient. Even the walk to Sforzo castle is quite short. There...

I stayed two nights on a business trip and was very pleasantly surprised. Less than 60 seconds' walk from the cathedral, I was concerned about street noise, but my room was absolutely silent (apart from order guests stupidly putting their air con on in the middle of the night and talking loudly on huge first night). The shutter was fantastic... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
