“We didn't stay!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Upon arrival early in the morning, we didn't receive a great welcome.
Rooms have a lot of wear and tear, everything is old and not attractive anymore.
Location is perfect at the entrance of Galleria Vittoria Emmanuel.
For me this is not a 'Small Luxury hotel' or a five star hotel.
The atmosphere of the hotel is very dark and weared out.

It is ocated at only 100 meters from il Duomo. It is a boutique hotel that started quite well years ago. I have been at the Gray many times but this is my last time. The bathrooms need urgent maintenance, they have bathtubs with no protection so, if you decide to take a shower you flood the bathroom, it is also dirty and not well kept. Their air conditioning system is impossible to control. There are so many switches that you need a course to figure out where to turn the lights on and how to close the curtains. The place is depassé! Pity because it used to be good. Their breakfast choice is pretty limited, the decoration is dark and you feel you are having breakfast in the middle of the night.

This time they gave me room for handicapped people without telling me, not a nice room. Not coming back

The Gray is a very stylish and highly sophisticated boutique hotel just 32 steps beside the dome and 34 steps a way from the famous shopping mall. It takes 3 min to the main entrance of the scala and the lavish shopping roads are just around the corner.

No wonder the central location demands a price that is above oridinary reasoning. The rooms are small not really functional, but that is not the point for this hip place.

The bathroom furniture carries the dirt of many vistiors. It feels somehow strange to witness the remains of previous guests. And in my case I do not care how famous the are, dirt stays simply dirt if the name tag is missing.

I was there on business, so I needed to leave before berakfast started.

Room Tip: Check-in only if you can avoid the bathroom or use it without lights.

The Gray is a small luxury hotel with a friendly atmosphere where the staff is friendly and accommodating. Rooms, a modern European style, are well appointed despite the limited space of the building. Internet access is easy and unlimited. Breakfast is also very good. In addition, like most of the other reviews, we really appreciated the hotel is located in the historical center of Milan. And what about all these great shops that blend this high quality Italian decor.
The Gray est un petit hotel de luxe à l'ambiance conviviale où le personnel est chaleureux et accommodant. Les chambres, d'un style moderne à l’européenne, sont bien aménagées malgré l'espace restreint du bâtiment. L'accès internet est facile et illimité. Les petits déjeuners sont aussi très bons. De plus, tout comme la majorité des autres critiques, nous avons vraiment appréciés que l'hotel se situe au coeur du centre historique de Milan. Et que dire de toutes ces superbes boutiques qui s'intègrent harmonieusement à ce décor italien de grande qualité.

Well, first of all, you cannot bit this location. It's very close to the Duomo, with a direct view to the Scala and Galleria Vittorio, and you are right in the center of its all, easy to find your way around and get anywhere from that spot. Seriously luxury at its best. Little hotel, unique modern design. The round jacuzzi is a great additional touch. I took my husband for its birthday and we loved every minute of it. The breakfast is great as well. It's a unique hotel and I highly recommend it!

A nice quiet small hotel right on the Duomos doorstep

All the rooms are completely different so don't be shy to ask to see a few. Ours had a sauna in it. Others have a living room or a jacuzzi bath.

The front desk is most helpful and knowledgable

Location perfect especially for first time visitors to Milan. We chose as a stopover to be central to the shopping district. We found for the price the hotel's room size quite small and missing the personalised service usually received from boutique hotels. To be fair we were rushing in a city we know quite well so may have missed the opportunity to engage with the staff.

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
