Doubletree by Hilton Milan

Reviewed 23 May 2014

This hotel is located outside the main part of the city in a dingy industrial strip with prostitutes in the street nightly right outside your door (no kidding). There are no reasonable public transportation options nearby, and taxis are expensive. Although the property itself is nice and the staff excellent, I cannot recommend this hotel.

Dear Howard R,

Thank you for the appreciation of Hotel and his services. Please note that the Hotel is well connected to the city center both by tram just in front of the Hotel then by metro using our free shuttle to reach Lotto station. As you wrote on the Hilton review and on Tripadvisor the Hotel offer a good service and has an excellent staff and I think these are good reasons to recommend our Hotel also if, like in every area of Milan, also in the historical center you can find prostitutes in the street. By our side we are working with our secutity staff to control the area in front of the Hotel that is safe and pleasant but we cannot control the beginning of the street 250-300 meters away where they occasionally stay. I undestand you came for leisure but I can assure you that our location is much more appreciated from our business clients that easily reach the Rho Fair the MI.CO congress center, S. Siro stadium and the Expo 2015 area.

Thanks.

Highly recommend for a business stay. Great staff and good service. The breakfast was very good and offered many options. Bed was firm and very comfortable. The decor and design of the hotel is quite contemporary and pleasing.

Cara Sumitha,

La ringrazio per l'apprezamento dell'Hotel e dei suoi servizi espresso nella sua recensione.
Mi spiace non abbia trovato di suo gusto la pietanza ordinata al ristorante ma le assicuro che dal punto di vista qualitativo usiamo solo prodotti freschi e di prima qualità. Proprio per questo avrei piacere di invitarla a cenare come mio ospite presso il nostro ristorante nella sua prossima visita a Milano per farle recuperare il suo giudizio cosi da rendere tutto perfetto, Hotel e ristorante.
Spero di rivederla presto.

The Doubletree is quite a distance from the city centre and the congress centre and the hotel isn't located in a very nice area of town, but it is worth staying given its excellent staff (Luca behind the bar was great and knew his cocktails!) and the service was generally very good.
We arrived from Linate airport, which is not serviced (there is a free shuttle to/from Malpensa). Taxi fares in Milan are quite expensive, but room price is quite reasonable and the beds are very good. Hotel property and room are very clean. Internet is complimentary and welcomed with a chocolate chip cookie.
Overall, a very good experience for us.

Got to this place and though it says 4star I would say 5 star. When you check in you get a chocolate cookie. Don't ask why but it's the start of great hospitality. Can't fault this place. Clean tidy courteous and welcoming. Big thumbs up from me.

I was in this hotel with a group of 12 tourists. The hotel is just 5 minutes walking from the main and central Station. Upon arrival the very friendly and helpful front desk staffs provided us with early check in at 11 am. The lobby was in medium size, but very clean and live. The room was also clean and big enough. The sleeping bed was also OK. The buffet breakfast which finishes at 10 am hat lots of things and choices. I also liked the gym. Therefore, I have no hesitation to offer this hotel to any traveler. Have a nice stay! Help yourself with the complimentary biscuits at the Lobby!

I will not lie; I like the Hilton brand because you know what you pay for and you also get it: VERY comfortable modern rooms, well lit - great beds - nice bathroom - internet. The whole thing. Yes the other people are right the location is not the most ' romantic' one (as there is not much to do in the vicinity) but in 20 minutes by tram you can reach the centre of Milan.
Very helpful and friendly front desk; great breakfastroom and assortment too…
My room was facing the back (very quiet indeed) but I left the curtains closed as - let's say- the view I had was not one oozing the italian beauty and charm of the country…..
