Best Western Plus Hotel Galles

Reviewed July 26, 2013

Although smallish, our room was comfortable and quiet, despite Galles's location on Corso Buenos Aires, a major shopping street (we were on the 1st floor on the side street-request it).
The hotel's location is, as others have noted, excellent -- the Red line Lima station is only steps away (4 stops to Duomo).
The pool is too small for laps, the photo being somewhat deceptive (it's shot with a wide-angle lens), and the gym is too warm for serious exercise ( it should be 20C). Oddly, and I commented on this item to management, there is no cold water in the gym area; only hot tea. Who drinks hot tea when exercising? Breakfast, 6 flights up is decent. The machine-made cappuccino works well if you add an extra shot of espresso,
We stayed there twice, and would stay again.
BTW, Milan has what must be the world's most expensive taxi fares ( > 90 euros to Malpensa). We took the express train in to Milan Centrale (around 10 euros), a 10 minute walk to the hotel, but a car service to the airport at a flat 95 euro rate. The Hertz location is also near Milan Centrale, which adds to the convenience of Galles's location.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review on you recent stay at the Hotel Galles.
Rooms vary in size, color and amenities according to the type of room chosen. Superior and Suite rooms are bigger than classic ones. However all rooms features an elegant and classic style that reflects the 19th century architecture’s palace the hotel resides in. The location of the Hotel is indeed very strategic, as it allows easy access around the city. We are glad you enjoyed the sightseeing. The pool area is a considerably a fair size around Milan and perfect for some relaxation. Hot herbal teas are actually a very beneficial detoxing remedy and used by many gyms & spas in Milan. Bottles of cold water are available at the Bar or vending machine located on the ground floor. We do thank you for your valuable feedback as it helps us improving the service we deliver and we look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Regards

it is a great location, safe and friendly neighborhood, close to all the sites at every turn. It is a nice area to retreat to after the hustle and bustle of touring Milan, especially with the relaxing SPA centre with many activities to choose from including a nice pool and massage chairs. Looking forward to our next visit

Stayed at Hotel Galles for few nights and strongly recommend it. Very well located in Milan, closed by shopping area and subway; Hotel itself great furbished with taste and very well maintained; excellent food variety and quality at the restaurant and the candlelight dinner on the roof top terrace was over the top with excellent menu; staff all was extremely friendly, smiling and ready to assist; gym small but well equipped, SPA excellent for relaxation with a nice Chromotherapy with Himalayan salt area. Thank you all for a lovely stay, I will be back soon

This hotel was in a great location we were able to walk to the train station. The only hotel was stayed in that had American breakfast options, pretty large selection offered for breakfast. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Also the only hotel we visited that had cable where we could watch our Miami Heat at 3am in the comfort of our own room. Would stay there again.

We stayed here en route to Amalfi. Very central location. Great for shopping and exploring Milan on foot. We were exhausted and opted for a quick meal in the rooftop restaurant. Great food and service.

We only had 1 night in Milan before catching our plane and this hotel was a perfect choice.
The front desk was amazing, especially Sonya and Stefano! They offered an adaptor for our electronics, gave terrific restaurant recommendations and directions, helped with airport shuttle, set up free breakfast bags to go since we had to leave so early, etc, etc. It was fun to order free special pillows after having flat pillows throughout Italy on our trip. Also, the pool and spa facilities were a huge and fun surprise... massage chairs, relaxing pool, hot tea, sauna, wet sauna, spa, and more. Tix for underground available at front desk and located immediately outside hotel. Very easy to navigate.

Most hotels in Milan are expensive. We only had one night but found the hotel to be well served with English speaking staff, clean and centrally located. The underground is immediately out front and offers good service to all parts of the city
