Small, nice and clean hotel on a perfect location in Milano center. Close to Metro or beautiful Duomo square. Shopping streets - 2 minutes away.
Shortly - I was first time, but I hope-not the last :-)

The hotel is handsome and located ideally for touring the city without being right in the middle of the hustle and bustle, it is located on a nice little quite side street. The staff is very helpful as well.

My only complaint and the thing that ruined my experience is that it is 5:30 in the morning and I am listening to a woman who has been on the phone with the airline for an hour now trying to find a flight back to the US. There might as well not even be walls between the rooms, at least then one might understand that they provide no (seriously none) noise reduction and not make any noise before 6 am or so.

Come to this hotel, enjoy the comfy beds and clean rooms but what ever you do DO NOT forget your earplugs!

Room Tip: I can't speak for the other rooms here but don't stay in room 205 unless you have no neighbo...

Hotel is very close (5 minutes walking distance) to Il Duomo and is located on a quiet street.
Not too small and not too large. You can walk to the major points of interest.
Room and bathroom were impeccably clean. Very fast and free Wifi.
Only hotel I have ever stayed in that gave you the non alcoholic contents of the mini bar (fruit juice, soft drinks, water) for free, and they were replenished daily, an enormous convenience!!

We arrived at the Gran Duca di York at 9 0'clock in the morning after having to leave Como quite early to avoid a planned train strike on the day we travelled in.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the very friendly concierge who, even though we had arrived hours before check in, immediately checked if he could offer us the room, he could and immediately checked us in. Great service and very much appreciated.

The hotel is situated in a quiet back street, it looks like you could be in the back of beyond, but if you walk straight out of the front door and across the street you are literally yards from Duomo Square and all the shopping Milan has to offer. Great location, quiet but just minutes from the hustle and bustle.

The hotel itself is quite traditional, tranquil and peaceful with a very quiet bar area where you can grab a coffee or a drink in comfortable surroundings. The rooms are, again, very traditional and comfortable with a complimentary soft drink mini bar, another very good touch from the hotel.

Unfortunately we had to check out quite early the following morning to get to Malpensa but the breakfast provided was excellent, a full cold continental selection, pastries, croissants, cereal, juices, fresh coffee and scrambled eggs and bacon, the eggs were divine, practically omelette rather than scrambled, lovely.

Unfortunately we only stayed for the one night but I would not hesitate to recommend the Gran Duca di York for anyone looking for a stay in central Milan.

This was the first hotel on our 3 week tour of Italy and we couldn't have been happier. While it was a bit tricky for us to find, and it really shouldn't have been, the location to the duomo and other parts of the city is phenomenal. Unfortunately prior to arriving, I had the pleasure of dealing with the airline due to lost luggage. The staff was absolutely amazing in helping me track it down - checking and calling while we were out exploring. The breakfast buffet was one of the better ones we had on the entire trip as it was a cold and hot buffet. And lastly, we received a restaurant recommendation for Nabucco and it was one of the top meals we had on our trip, and it wasn't touristy.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in May. We found the staff to be very helpful and accommodating. Our room was one of the largest we stayed in while traveling in Italy. It was quite clean and we had a very comfortable bed. The hotel is in an ideal location; we were minutes from the Duomo, metro systems, and shopping. This is an ideally located hotel nestled in a quiet area..

Gran Duca di York is a fantastic hotel with the best location being in the middle of the action and yet quiet. Great breakfast and decent sized room with all modern facilities. Near the tube and lot's of F&B outlets. Best of all, next to the Duomo. Their staffs are warm, professional and helpful. This a definite keeper.

Room Tip: It maybe close to the Duomo but google the map as the entrance is not very prominent in the night.
