5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

When they called it a design hotel, I had my experience from other in this category. But Straf was the real thing. Lot of art, and the room was amazing. The staff was hip and very friendly. I felt I was the most important guest this afternoon. Great breakfast too. And most of all; 50 meters to Duomoen i Milano.... More

The location of the hotel is absolutely in the 'heart' of Milan - Duomo is 2' away, you can actually see it from the room, the Scala Theater is just next - and needless to mention that the hotel is opposite Rinnacente - the perfect department store for all and any shopping you might want. The Hotel just recently (April,... More

Staff not friendly,it seems they don't care of their clients. It's a 4* hotel but the customer service is not at the level...for example not even a complimentary small bottle of water in the room... Check in not friendly at all. Internet is not working properly,a lot of disconnection you are always obliged to log on. Breakfast room very small... More

The room is basic with modern not attractive design for me. the location is good one minute to the Dumo. i have two comments: 1- The hotel has a night club therefore it was little loud. 2- They need to improve the design little pit.

Another Design Hotel which fulfilled my expectations - great room and lobby design. Trendy bar next to the hotel - full of young people during weekends. It was a bit difficult to access the hotel by car and to park it, but the hotel staff will assist you.

The 2 things that stops this from being a 1 star review are (1) the location is ridiculously amazing: right next to the Duoma and right near a metro station, and (2) the housekeeper who did our laundry and ironed our clothes could not have been nicer or more amazing However, the rooms were awful. They were ultra modern (if... More

With apologies to Clint Eastwood, this review is titled “the Good, the Bad and the Ugly”. Firstly, the Ugly: I am definitely not a fan of the modern, industrial/minimalist style. However, contrary to other review comments, our room was very bright and well lit. Secondly, the Bad: There were several aspects where the design form took precedence of function. There... More

The hotel has the location for a few days stay for seeing the best of Milan. The recent reviews about style are a personal taste. We found the staff to be very helpful and quite good fun. The point is it is different and meant to be. There is a small gym that seems functional and the breakfast is reasonable... 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.
