We arrived at this hotel one morning after a long journey from Australia. We were exhausted and greatly appreciated early entry to the "superior double room" we had booked. We chose this hotel on the basis of a friend's recommendation, its very good TripAdvisor rating, and the fact that it was within walking distance of the central station in Milan. We had caught the train from the airport and it proved an easy walk to the hotel with our bags, even in fine rain. It was also just far enough away from the station to avoid the general downtrodden ugliness associated with railway stations.
We had a comfortable, quiet front room with a tiny balcony. It was decorated elegantly, in line with the whole of the hotel. We enjoyed breakfast the following day - it too was in keeping with the high standards of the hotel, and we were each offered a coffee made to order.
Being Australian, we are used to having tea and coffee making facilities provided in hotel rooms. This was not the case at this hotel, nor at most of the other places we stayed. However, I'd recommend this lovely Italian hotel without reservation. It is not part of an international chain: it has a lovely intimate Italian ambience, perfect for a holiday in Italy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel Andreola Central is one of the many historical 4-star hotels in Milan that opened at the same time the Central train station moved to its current location, originally behind the Spanish walls (currently Piazza della Repubblica). The hotel is located in Via Scarlatti, an extension to the Central train station's Galleria delle Carrozze which ends in Corso Bueonos Aires. Over the long and venerable years since its establishment, many VIPs have patronized the hotel: Fausto Coppi, the bicycle champion, prize-winning boxer Primo Carnera and Italian soccer stars during the sixties when the first player contracts were negotiated. ... more less
