i spend 2 night in this hotel for a business meeting on the second week of march. The breakfast is very rihc, staff and barman very friendly. A very good location for business meeting.
Room is a little small, but good shower, and bath accesory.

Had a wonderful overnight stay with my husband and son. The hotel is in a fantastic location for visiting the Sforza castle, Piazza Duomo and many other attractions. It is also within walking distance of the restaurant district of Brera. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The roof top bar is very nice and Diego ( bar man) was very hospitable . The rooms are clean and comfortable , if not a little noisy ( housekeeping staff seem to enjoy dragging furniture around from 7.30 am) but this was only a minor issue that did not detract from the overall experience.

Visited Milano for a weekend with my husband. Location is great: 10 min from Milano Cadorna railway station, 5 min from La Scala and Duomo. The room was clean, bathroom as well (no tube, just shower - not the newest equiped so when in shower the water is everywhere in a room). The hotel has roof restaurant (very good and nice view) with direct connection from the rooms via the balcony. Balcony is common for all rooms with lovely flowers (when in blossom they are quite stinky so be sure you don't have allergy). My recommendation: if you ask reception staff to book you restaurant or smth else, check it 10 times before you go there. We had such unpleasant situation when we asked to reserve us a table in a good restaurant. They reserved us a table at Giovanni restaurant 15 min drive from the hotel (which is fine), but when we arrived there there were no reservation and everything occupied. At the end we found out that hotel staff booked us other Giovanni restaurant which was 5 min walk from the hotel but sent us to wrong place so we were traveling an hour and were sitting at the most touristic place at the end. Everything could heppened but when we told this to the hotel staff we expected at least appologise, instead we felt as we are the stupidest people in the world :) except for this issue everything was good.

Came on a business trip and the staff were very friendly. Very helpful and always polite. The breakfast area is tastefully set out and there is plenty of choice. At one meal we even had the Harpist playing which was great after a days business in the city.

Great location for getting to all the sights and for a great walk out in the city in the evening. Would happily book this hotel again.

We went to LaScala so I wanted a hotel that we could walk from to the theater and this is perfectly placed in Milan for that. The hotel is lovely, quiet, clean and very well situated for visiting the Duomo and for shopping or any other sightseeing excursion. The room was large with a quality bathroom. Sleeping was uninterrupted and nice black out curtains. The breakfast was very plentiful with lots of choices. The only negative I give this hotel is that the night receptionist , that being evening into late night, was multitasking and trying to do to much with very little success . The service was rushed and incomplete and not helpful. Other than him, the staff was attentive and able to get the job done.

This is a gem of a hotel with a great location very close to the downtown areas of Milan and within walking distance of the popular shopping and tourist attractions. I stayed here for two weeks and the staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The breakfast spread is adequate, but doesn't ever change which can get boring by the end of the first week. The restaurant is top quality as expected in Milan, and room service is prompt and very tasty.

I also appreciated the Nespresso coffee machine in my room with complimentary coffee capsules everyday.

There were a few minor gripes, (i) the wifi signal was spotty, especially in room 606 where I moved for the last couple of days, (ii) they do not provide any drinking water in the room unless you specifically ask for it. Coming from Asia, I find this very strange, but maybe that's the norm in Europe, and (iii) for such an expensive hotel, I find it strange that the TV only has free to air news channels. I expect to get a full satellite TV package with English channels like HBO and sports, instead they only provided Al Jazeera, RAI, NHK World and BBC. Coupled with the spotty wifi, please ensure that you bring a good book

Room Tip: Very poor wifi signal on the 6th floor
