“Great location, reasonable price for Milan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

In Milan for a weekend break, picked this hotel for its location about 5 minutes away from the Duomo. Easy to walk or take the trams to all other major sights and shopping. A lovely little hotel, sparkling clean with great enhanced continental breakfast; go earlier for the most selection, especially on weekends. Comfortable European-sized rooms with good heating/air conditioning. Walls are a little thin but this was only noticeable in the morning when guests were going for breakfast at different times, earplugs should suffice. Would stay here again for overall quality for price and prime location. Booking well in advance on the website gets you the lowest rates which are reasonable for central Milan.

Room Tip: A higher floor towards the back of the building would be quietest. Rooms with small balconies would...

I've stayed at several small and inexpensive hotels in the center of Milan, and this one is by far the best bargain I've ever found in a city where it's hard to find bargain hotel rates. Its best feature is the location, a five-minute walk to Piazza Duomo and Piazza Cordusio, right around the corner of the Ambrosiana library, so you can walk everywhere, and it's on a quiet street. Very pleasant staff and the rooms, while not especially big, are not miniscule either, as you might find at some of the other places nearby. Now I know where to stay the next time I go to Milan.

First the building is an historical residence nearly 17th century, now is modern and comfortable hotel, a few blocs os the Milan Cathedral, the Scala of Milan and 3 blocks of Cordusio subway station. The staff was very hepful and kindly. The breakfast was incredible, with a great selection of italian food. The hotel´s decoration is really charming and has very good taste. The room was clean and so comfortable, and free bottles of water were available.
I would definetely recommend this hotel.

Another professor and I brought a group of college students to Milan and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Duca di York. The staff members were very helpful--they made numerous reservations at restaurants for us, they patiently answered all our questions about where to go and how to get there, and they went above and beyond by preparing breakfast bags for us when we left very early for a day trip to Venice. The breakfast bar had a great selection of food...and I'm already missing my cappuccinos that were made to order every morning. The hotel is in a very convenient location--close to mass transit, the Duomo, and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and within walking distance to both the Brera and the Navigli districts. And, finally, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and free bottles of flat and sparkling water, as well as other beverages, were available.

Nice safe bet.
Superb location, very good service, good price, fair rooms.
If it were allowed I would actually give this hotel a 3.5 stars.
Since I need to get to 200 characters in order to post this review, I will take this space to say that it is very important, if you wish to see the Last Supper, to purchase your tickets as soon as they are available for the desired dates.

Staff is all very sweet and kind, make you feel very welcome. We arrived at 11 am and both rooms were available. Rooms are clean, nice and functional. Lot’s of space for clothes, and real hangers in the closet.
We asked for dinner recommendations, as we found some of the good restaurants to be closed over New Year, they made an excellent choice and even booked the table for us. The service, comfort, location and facilities of this hotel is perfect, and the price is very good.
All drinks in minibar are complimentary – also complementary Wi-Fi
Very nice breakfast, especially for Italian standard. Eggs, bacon, sausages, 3 different kind of cheese, butter, different yoghurts, fresh fruit, toast, Danish pastry, cereal, marmalade, Nutella, honey, juice tea, coffee all you could want for breakfast.
If you plan on taking a taxi from the airport – don’t. Ask the hotel for transportation. We took a taxi from the airport, old smelly Skoda – fixed price 90 EUR, we asked the hotel to book a taxi for the return, they suggested a private firm for 95 EUR – this was a huge Mercedes, with lot’s of space for all our luggage.
Hotel location is also perfect, nice and quiet and just a 5 minute walk to the very center of Milan.
I will give this lovely hotel my very best recommendations, and will definitely stay here again when in Milan.
