“Great place to stay a weekend in one of the best cities in the world..”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

If you are planning on lounging around in your suite or room, this may not be the place for you. However the rooms are modern and well kept the bathrooms are the major attractions. Good breakfast, relax attentive staff and great location for a weekend in a global city this was a good choice

This small hotel is a short drive to the cathedral and other attractions. It is in a quiet neighborhood with little activity, on Sunday especially. It is attractively decorated in a contemporary style. The public spaces are quiet and inviting. Our bathroom was wonderful with 2 sinks (although dim lighting), but the room was small with no place for suitcases except on desk and small sofa. We had a view of the cathedral over the rooftops. Breakfast was good, staff was excellent.

We stayed for two nights at the end of a 5-week trip to Northern Italy. Wanting to go out with a bang, she had the Presidential Suite on the 12th floor and I had an Executive Suite directly below on the 11th floor. Le Club Accor membership reduced the price as did booking and paying 7 months earlier. Breakfast is included in the rate but we didn't have it either day.
Apparently, the hotel has been open for 3 years but it looks very new (more like less than a year old). The building is not centrally located, being a 15 minute walk from the Duomo (or half an hour if you get as lost as I did) but, being in a business area, it is very quiet on weekends (we were there on Saturday and Sunday nights). There is a tram stop very close by.
The Presidential Suite (rooms 1206 and 1207) has a massive bed, bigger than king-size, two bathrooms (the showers are incredible) and a separate loungeroom and dining area. Being on the 12th floor, there is no street noise whatsoever unless you open either of the doors onto the two balconies. These balconies wrap around two sides of the building and provide at least 180 degree views of the city, the Alps, the Duomo and the marvellous Torre Velasca building. The San Nazaro Maggiore basilica is nextdoor and the bells are a constant reminder of all that is great about Italy. Curtains are electrically operated from switches around the rooms.
The Executive Suites are also very comfortable and spacious and have 2 bathrooms and one wrap-around balcony (room 1107 has the same great views of the duomo etc). Being dreadful sleepers, which is why we have separate hotel rooms, we both appreciated the extremely comfortable beds and pillows and both slept very well both nights. In fact, we really crashed.
Being pretty much wiped out from 5 weeks of travelling (and this being a return visit to Milan), we had room service dinner both nights rather than go out and the food was restaurant quality. Also, we figured that meals at our dining table with night views over the city sights would be pretty good anyway. On our second day, I had returned from a 3-hour private tour and neither of us felt like walking any more so we had lunch in the hotel restaurant on the 3rd floor. This was one of the top 5 meals we had in 5 weeks and the service provided by the restaurant manager, Massimo, was excellent. He is a delight to talk to, has a very good knowledge of Italian wines and is a real asset to the hotel. We also enjoyed cocktails in the bar twice and the barman makes a very good martini.
In fact, all of the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. We found this a refreshing change from many of the newer hotels where the staff are trying to be cool but just come across as cold. All in all, a great hotel.

Room Tip: High floor for the views, room ending in a 7.

The Uptown Palace Milan is a nice modern hotel. The rooms are cosy but very clean. The staff are very helpful and courteous. The in-house restaurant was fine and the breakfast variety very good. Location is 5- 10 mins walk from the main city centre.

I stayed at the Uptown Palace for one night in May 2013. The hotel is in a great location within walking distance of the Duomo, Galleria, museums, etc. The room was very updated with chic modern fixtures, and everything was spotless. The shower was amazing! The breakfast was excellent (good variety of cheeses, breads, fruit, yogurt, eggs, etc.). The only negative aspects of the hotel are the lack of reliable wireless internet (free in the lobby, but uselessly slow) and the organization at the front desk. The bellhops insist on taking your luggage, even as you insist that you don't want them to. The staff person who checked us in initially appeared confused and annoyed by our reservation and told us that we were supposed to arrive the day before. I had changed our reservation more than a month before our arrival because of a change in our flight plans, and I had a printed confirmation of our reservation. Everything was fine after she found our actual reservation, but it didn't give a good first impression to make a guest momentarily panic that there was no reservation. Other than that, the front desk staff was helpful and cordial. If you take the metro from the central train station with luggage, I would recommend getting off at the Crocetta stop (much closer than the other stop). I would stay here again and would recommend the hotel to others.

We stayed two nights at Uptown Palace. We really liked the room. Very clean and modern. It was walking distance to Duomo and La Scala Opera house. (I would say a 15 minute walk) The staff was very nice. This was by far the nicest breakfast of all the the hotels we stayed at. You have pastries as well as proteins. I would highly recommend!

Near the city centre and public transport. Friendly, helpful staff. Well-furnished bedrooms and lovely bathroom. The only negative point could be the traffic noise if one can't stand air conditioning and needs to open the window for fresh air. Good breakfast selection. I'd say it's the ideal place to stay for tourists and business people. The prices are acceptable for Italy.
