Perfectly convenient location a few blocks from Duomo and walking distance to most cultural places of interest and best shopping. Modern lovely rooms. Full breakfast including cappucinos. Friendly and informative people at front desk. Intimate lounge and lobby bar.

In the center of Milan, close to la Scala and great shopping. Friendly service. The breakfast was very good. Staff most helpful. Reliable free internet in the lobby. Good advice for shopping, dinning and museums.

The location of this hotel is perfect - just a 5 minute walk to the Duomo and multiple tram/subway lines. We went in December and our sixth floor room was very hot. Turning off the heater didn't do much, so we resorted to leaving the window open while we were in the room. Amenities are nice, with a few exceptions: there is a trouser press but no iron/ironing board. There are bathroom toiletries (razor, toothpaste, body wash, shampoo, cotton swabs), but no lotion or hair conditioner. There is a hair dryer and heated towel rack in the bathroom, Housekeeping was thorough and efficient. The front desk staff are very pleasant. There is a complimentary buffet breakfast in the basement with hot foods, eggs, cereals, coffees, fruit, etc. The quality is average - about what you'd expect from a free buffet breakfast - but it's a rare treat in Italy and a helpful way to start your day.

Room Tip: They seem to have an issue regulating heating/air conditioning, so ask for an appropriate room for y...

Great location, 5 minute casual walk to Duomo, Milan's cathedral. Easy access to other places, trams, buses and taxis readily available. Breakfast was included in our room rate. Buffet breakfast with lots to choose from, unless you are Coeliac. Got by on fried eggs and fruit. Room was extremely hot, turned down temperature but didn't make a difference, middle of winter and we slept with window open, lucky they were of the type that did open. Rooms were clean, tea and coffee making facility available along with a little bar fridge. Car parking is available but they have a couple of spots at a local car parking garage towards Duomo. You park your own car and walk back though it is only a few minutes walk.

I organized a 2 day meeting in the hotel for about 15 people. The hotel was choosen because of its location and the good price/quality. Staff was very accommodating in meeting all our needs and requests. The pictures on their website do not represent the hotel well. It looks even better in real. Nice Deluxe rooms with comfy beds and nice marble bathrooms. Breakfast buffet had a very good selection of meats, cheeses, breads, cereals, eggs, .... Cosy bar area with restaurant. Very friendly staff and very well located just steps from the Duomo.

My second stay at the Brunelleschi confirmed what an old reliable hotel it is. Conveniently located for the business traveler and tourist alike. While the dour staff can be intimidating, they are just Milanese; a smile prompts a smile, and the service is impeccable. My room was comfortable, quiet, and the shutter system can make the room dark if you wish it. Taxis show up immediately when called; the hotel is near to trams, buses, and the Metropolitana. A lovely breakfast every day, including fruit, grazie. My only quibble is that the ambiguous wording of the English-language pages of their website suggests WiFi is available in the rooms. Not so, only in the lobby, but that does encourage some socializing with other laptop-using hotel guests.

Brunelleschi Hotel was an excellent place to stay in Milan. A block or two from both the Missori and Duomo stops, it's centrally located, priced reasonable and a great place to stay while in Milan.

The hotel website says to get off an the Missori stop, but the Duomo stop is almost as close and eliminates the need to transfer trains if coming from Malpensa airport.

Nice, clean rooms, I requested (and got) a high floor room. Spacious room. Internet is free in the room, however, it's not wireless internet access. I packed my router (Airport Express) and was up and running quickly. Towel warmer, comfortable bed, and a nice breakfast (included) to top it off.

The television is an old CRT-type (not a flat screen) which was odd- but you're not in Milan to watch TV, right?

Room Tip: High floor was quiet and had windows to open- not sure about other floors.
