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

The location is perfect. Walk out, turn left and you're in front of the Galleria V. Emanuele II, via Dante, and the Duomo. The hotel is fine, I had a single room with en suite. The toilet was a bit cramped but the room and bed were fine. Its slightly off the main road so there's not much noise at... More

Great value for money considering the prime location- my single room on the top floor was small but comfortable. The shower worked OK, too, once I had worked it out! Breakfast basic but perfectly adequate and staff helpful and friendly. Can definitely recommend it to anyone travelling on a tight budget and who wants to be right next to the... More

We stayed here for one night in Milan as a stop over before traveling elsewhere in Italy. While reception looks recently renovated, as soon as you head for the lift the cracks start to show. The whole place looks like it was decorated to a poor standard. The room we stayed in had no working socket in the bedroom. We... More

The location of this hotel is the best and the most what hotel can offer. Its literally 2 minutes by walking from Duomo. Coffee served during breakfast was brilliant. The wifi was not working on my phone. The bed was really uncomfortable. The reception looks nice and modern, but that's the only spot in the hotel. It's like to different... More

This hotel is situated just a few paces from the famous Piazza Duomo or the main church in Milano also the in place in this wonderful city, Hotel is very modest, with a modest continental breakfast, rooms are clean and considering the position it is very OK.

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.
