“Fantastic location with warm service in the heart of Milan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is a gem of a hotel in the heart of Milan. Located just blocks from the Duomo. We had a beautiful loft suite with in suite steam room, fantastic bath and shower, huge walk in closet in an ultra modern space. The breakfast and dinner restaurant has nice ambience, great food and beverage choices. Extremely friendly and competent staff throughout. Great restaurant recommendations a d concierge services. The only detractors is the lack of an in house gym ( small gym in sister hotel down the street) and difficult parking situation.

I wanted to stay there for the whole duration of my conference, but they were fully booked for the first two nights because of fashion week. Therefore, I stayed at the Petit Palais Hotel de Charme, and really appreciated The Gray's convenient location. It is only literally 20 seconds walk from the Duomo metro station and the Duomo itself. It is within 15 min walking distance to any of the shopping streets and 5 min from La Scala. It is right next to the Rinascente shopping mall, which has all the high end local brands as well as a great food hall upstairs with several restaurants.
The price was very high though due to fashion week. and I saw many fashionistas coming in and out. They made me feel very inadequately dressed ! The decoration was very modern, but one can see that it is getting a bit worn. The room itself is very nice. It has wooden floor and has a split level, with the bathroom and wardrobe up at the mezzanine. This makes lugging the luggage up the narrow stairs a bit of a challenge. The amenities are nicely appointed, and the wifi works great. I also bought a SIM card from 3 Telecom for 8 Euros, which was good for one month with a 3GB limit. It can be extended for 5 Euros per month, which is much cheaper than using the roaming plan from my home carrier (which is also 3). This worked very well when I was out of the hotel, and Google map was so useful in helping me navigate the city on foot.
I left something behind in Piedmont and asked them to mail it to this hotel. Unfortunately, the package did not arrive before I left, but the hotel staff was very kind in arranging Fedex to courier the package back to me, which arrived the day after I arrived.

This is all about location. The staff was friendly and we were upgraded to a large suite. Loved cocktails on the deck after a day of shopping. Nicely decorated, boutique option! This is not a budget hotel, but fits nicely into the Milan vibe. We were only there for two nights, but would stay there again without a doubt.

The location could not be better. The place has a nice boutique feeling to it overall. Stylish, modern, but not one of those places where you feel overwhelmed by design. This is a good, functioning and well run hotel. Polite, efficient service. Clean and comfortable rooms.

Our room was a notch up from the basic rooms, but still very small. You have to accept this given the historic city centre location, but it does seem a little expensive for the size that you get.

Overall good experience, no real complaints, but perhaps not the best value for money in town.

This is our fourth stay at The Gray. Every year we go to Milan, without any hesitate we choose Gray. We feel like we're at home. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the heart of the city, but you don't hear any noise. While you're shopping, you can stop by the hotel and leave your packages and continue your day. You can walk to the best restaurants very easily. I have eaten the best ice cream in my life next door to the hotel. You can see the line of people waiting to buy.

Room Tip: Almost we stayed in most of the rooms. All of them are very good.

The Gray is the perfect combination of luxurious chic and comfortable- approachable. Arriving to the Gray you feel as though you are coming to the house of friends. You are greeted by warmth, a beautiful ambience and the backdrop of historic Milan. If you are looking at luxury properties in Milan, look no further than the The Gray. You will have the luxurious experience here paired with a unique ambience.
Will be my go to in Milan

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A gem of a hotel in the heart of Milan, where stunning contemporary design meets sophistication and comfort. The Gray, with just 21 individually decorated rooms, is an intimate property full of style, an d includes an atmospheric restaurant, a cosy bar and bedrooms, some of which have their own private gym. Smart, witty design elements throughout add to the sense of elegance and comfort. Deep chocolate browns contrast with crisp creams, geometric lines are softened by colored lighting effects, while bright colour accents,such as the suspended fuchsia swing in the lobby, enliven the ambience. An afternoon of sightseeing could not be easier as the Duomo is literally at the end of the street and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is in front of the hotel. A five-minute walk takes you to the fashion district around Via Monte Napoleone. Return to the hotel for delicious Mediterranean cuisine in the restaurant before heading to the opera.The Gray is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property. ... more   less
