I wasn't going to be in Milan for long (arrive at 8pm and leave at 7am the next day), so I was looking for a bargin... What I found was an extremely small room, very basic bed (seemed smaller then a true double) that "felt" dirty, spider webs near the ceiling in the my bathroom, and flies in the room (granted this was probably due to the previous guest having the window open for some period of time). The hotel served its purpose, but this is not a 4 star hotel... barely a 3 star hotel. I went to bed thinking I couldn't wait to leave the next morning. Good location for those that need to be close to the Central Train Station in Milan.

Stayed for 2 nights.Comfortable room and beds. Easy access to Metro and close to all attractions. Lots of restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Most restaurants not open till 7 so make sure you plan for that. Front desk staff not overly friendly and we should have been told upon arrival that renovations were being carried out throughout the hotel as we were woken at 8 a.m. by the sound of drilling and hammering. Not great if you wanted to take an afternoon siesta either! otherwise it ticked all the boxes.

We just stayed one night at the Hotel Windsor, flying in from Montreal and catching a train the next day. The room was very spacious (for a big European city) and nicely furnished with very comfortable beds. The bathroom was quite big too, but there was obviously a problem with the plumbing as there was no cold water and the hot water was not very hot; the water pressure was low. It was convenient for us to walk to the train station, but to visit Milan it would have been a little too far away from the city center. We did not have breakfast in the hotel, as we found a nice bakery with Italian goodies just around the corner.

We had to stay overnight in Milan whilst we changed Trains. We found this hotel to be great, it was very quiet & the room was just what the weary traveller needed. The staff were helpful with suggestions of where to eat. It was close to transport the Tram was right out front.

If you book yourself into the Windsor Hotel thinking "Hey! Sweet deal for this 4-star hotel near Piazza Repubblica. What a great score!" you're likely to be disappointed by the dated and very basic rooms. If, however, you reserve a room thinking "Hmmm. This is not a bad price for what looks to be a relatively decent hotel close to the station", then you'll be alright. Not ecstatic, but alright.

What else? Well, the breakfast was decent, the elevators worked, and the bed was reasonably comfortable. However, if I were appointed General Manager of the Windsor Hotel Milano my first official act would be to buy an iron - at least one - because I believe a four star hotel, especially one near the station - especially in a business centre like Milan - would have the capability to press a shirt.

My next act would be to update the decor in the rooms.

Great service, beautiful dinners (friendly waiter) and room seemed as if it got upgraded.

King-size bed, electronic windows with button by the bed, extremely spacious, free drink bars from fridge (no beer though), everything in working condition, great balcony view towards one of the train stations (and skyscrapers!), double-sink toilets, marble deco walls. What more could you ask for? Probably just a less noisy air-con.

Location, a bit far to walk from the station with hefty luggages though.

Young couple travelling on budget.

This, as has been mentioned, is a well located hotel between the two railway stations (we are arrived in one and left from the other - both a reasonable walk of 10-15 minutes). We had unfortunately been given a rather unpleasant room (similar to the one in the one star review below). We asked for a change which was no problem and were much happier. It was explained it was because we had inadvertently booked a room with single beds, so watch out for that as the hotel is clearly not completely updated. The new room was refurbished, clean and comfortable with an extra large bed, though the trams were noisy at night disturbing us a bit. It felt like a safe area and there were good bars and restaurants nearby. Breakfast was included in the price and was fine (especially the croissants and pastries!). Reception staff were friendly and had promptly answered emails before we arrived.. All in all a really good stopover.

Room Tip: Ensure you ask for a refurbished room, away from the tram side if you are a light sleeper, though no...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Choosing Hotel Windsor you'll enjoy the most elegant district of Milan: the so-called Quadrilatero della moda and Corso Como are the boundaries of this area; the hotel is also at a short distance from the next coming Porta Nuova business centre that will draw the future profile of the city. The location is strategic because it is just outside of the limited traffic C area, so our guests can leave their car in our parking garage and move freely on foot or by public transport. We are situated at 150 meters from Repubblica railway station, where to get the metro M3 "yellow line" integrated with the railway passing, and we are just at 10 minutes walk from Milano Centrale railway station, a further advantage for those arriving by train. ... more   less
