Super cool hotel with Great service. It bar is directly located under the hotel. Breakfast is small but very good and Italian. Rooms are super quiet. Love the bathroom because it's covered in all copper.

STRAF had the best location in Milan being across the Duomo and also Larinacenta shopping district. Staff were accommodating and friendly. The rooms were generous and stylish. The bathroom was decked out in head to toe bronze type material. So if you are into your interior this hotel will be a great stay. Also breakfast was generous with custom made...

The staff is the highlight of the hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable but for the life of me, I couldn't turn off the bathroom light. The breakfast buffet is sparse but the coffe is wonderful. Enjoyed my stay. The location is superb!

This hotel is so central, any closer and you could sleep in the Duomo or in the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. The entrance is surrounded by goldplated walls and at the reception an unexpected cold welcome: the booked price is 100 dollars more expensive even if we have the confirmation to prove it. It's hot and we are tired from the...

Perfect example of how a good hotel should be!!! I appreciated the GYM and the rooms are extremely quiet, even if my windows and balcon were on the Duomo of Milan side. Rooms are perfect designed and very comfortable (massaging chair was the cherry on top).... ;) Excellent breakfast in a charming light dining room. Both the hotel and the...

This is a perfectly located hotel to explore the historic centre of Milan. Decor is quirky and will not be to eeveryone's taste, but our room was very comfortable and quiet- we overlooked the courtyard. Black features greatly in the bedrooms to the extent that we couldn't find the black light switches against the black furniture! Staff were very helpful...

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.
