“Nice location and room”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

This hotel was near city center and walking distance to almost all the sites we had time to see. Before we arrived there we were able to communicate with them by email to find out the cost of getting to the airport and if they new a tour company for Lake Como. They were very responsive and that continued on site. The bed was comfortable, the room a good size and the bathroom was very nice. The hotel was not quite as quaint as some of the places we stayed in other cities but was perfect for the end of our trip. Overall a positive experience.

Perfectly located within 10 minutes walk of the Duomo, this budget hotel is lifted by its quirky charm, the helpful staff and the choice of restaurants within easy stroll. The room itself is small and basic, but scrupulously clean, freshly painted and with a more than adequate en-suite. Located in the financial district, the rooms are nice and quiet at night with good light-excluding shutters. In fact, so successful that we missed the breakfast deadline one morning. However the kindly staff still brought us our choices anyway. The breakfast is included and was very nice.There is a cute little bar with free snacks, very helpful front desk for directions, transport advice etc. Perfect for a few days in Milan.

Room Tip: Two rooms on the second floor have a little garden balcony - great in summer

Perfect quite hotel close to the Duomo but not too close.

There are so many hotels in Milan that we had a hard time figuring out where to stay without spending a lot of money. Gran Duca satisfied all options.

- The room was nothing fancy, but it was clean and seemed fairly modern.
- There was complimentary breakfast every morning
- Just a short 5 min walk to the Duomo and metro stations
- Staff spoke English and were very helpful

The only thing was that there were not a lot of quality restaurants right near the hotel, you had to walk or go our of your way to find them. But maybe that's just Milan though. Overall I would say it is a great place for the value and you will enjoy your stay.

Not the cheapest for a 3 Star hotel - but very well located right next door to the Ambrosian Art Gallery (set in a great palace building) and within a couple of hundred yards of the Duomo, the Victor Emmanuel shopping centre and La Scala. The Gran Duca was very comfortable and wonderfully clean - with new crisp white bed linen every day. The location alone is worth 3 stars by itself - the fourth was given for cleanliness!

Room Tip: 207 and 307 were both excellent doubles - we did not see any of the other rooms.

5 minutes from the Duomo and all the posh shops/restaurants etc , this was perfect for our three night stay in Milan. Right next door to cake shop and even an art gallery that was actually worth visiting when it was raining!
We hired superior rooms and they were more than adequate for our purposes. The bathroom was excellent as was the air conditioning and the maid service was as good as we have come across.

The breakfast included hot sausage bacon and scrambled eggs - and a nice touch - all soft drinks in the mini bar were complementary -and readily replenished- over the three night stay

We would certainly stop there again!.

Room Tip: Ours was classed as a superior room. The hotel seemed quite anyway even though we were near the road...

I stayed in a single room and found it surprisingly comfortable, and although compact, not the least bit claustrophobic. The closet/safe/fridge/shelves were in the entrance hallway which also provided extra space, and some nice sound separation from the elevator across the hall. Unaware of any street noise whatsoever. The single bed was wider and MUCH longer than normal singles in the US. Very comfortable, and I am 5'11". Clean, quiet, lots of variety at breakfast, easy walk to the Duomo etc., AC worked, and the fact that they made the entire contents of the minibar fridge (non-alcoholic drinks) complimentary was just the icing on the cake. Great stay. Thank you!

Room Tip: If you are traveling alone the single room is a terrific deal.
