The hotel was very nice ,clean and in a very good destination .It offered a wide variety of tasty food for breakfast .The only problem was that there wasn't a free parking available but you had to pay for it.

This hotel is awesome. The location is perfect- it's just 3 minutes from El Duomo. The rooms are small but comfortable. The staff was very polite and helpful. I really recommend this place in the heart of Milan...

I stayed in this hotel for two nights in Milan with my sister, and both of us thought that the emplacement was perfect, the room very good, and the breakfast amazing. We could visit Downtown and come back for a little pause to the room very easily. Thanks!

Good location but very bad and cheap feelings inside the hotel, the door seems is made of paper, you can hear the loud Italian next door. Maximal a hostel standard. I don't recommend this hotel if you need a good night sleep.

I spent here just one night and I had a single room ... or better a tiny single room! Despite the reduced dimensions, the bed was quite comfortable and larger than usual, but the bathroom had only the stricly necessary and the tv (luckily a flat one) was very close with the bed. Good for one night sleep. Very nice...

Perfect location near fortress A renovated building with new modern rooms. Immaculately clean with modern bathroom. Excellent friendly helpful staff with warm smiles. Really enjoyed a full North American breakfast which included eggs done any style - a rarity in this class of hotel in Italy. Excellent value for money. Will return again!

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.
