My girlfriend and I stayed at the Gran Duca di York for one night last weekend. I'd been to Milan before and did not particularly enjoy it. I found it expensive and overrated. This trip changed my opinion of the city and the starting point was our night at the Gran Duca. It is a simple clean and relaxing hotel to stay in. No fuss and glamour just nice, clean, quiet and functional, and close to all that Milan has to offer. The staff were exceptionally friendly and Marco, who doubles as a porter/barman was delightfully pleasant and made our stay there. We arrived late in the evening and wanted to head out to sample the delights of Milan as we were heading to Como the next day, We stopped for a drink at the bar before heading out and spent a pleasant hour with Marco. Frankly I could've stayed there all night. If you need any advice on where to go for food (and where to avoid) ask Matteo. He provided us with a map and recommendations and they were spot on. The first time I went to Milan I was charged 30 euros for one beer and a martini and lemonade (in 2003)! This time my girlfriend and I had a lovely meal and some wine for an additional 10 euros. This is a lovely hotel - sImple, clean, quiet and close to the amenities of Milan. Book a room with a balcony.
