Grand Hotel et de Milan
Ranked #9 of 426 Hotels in Milan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2013

After starting our 12 day Italian vacation in Rome, we ended our final night in Milan. I chose this hotel based on a first class tour company that I am familiar with, and they use this hotel. Although we were only there one night, it was superb! Very friendly, helpful, gracious staff and absolutely beautiful grand hotel! Perfect location as well. If ever in Milan again, I will stay here!

Such a beautiful, elegant hotel with the best location. Amazing history, friendly staff and gorgeous decorations. Beside the building is Armani and the Nobu restaurant is a must!

Close to the cathedral and shopping arcade. In the centre of all the designer shops.

Our rooms were delayed for ages but they made up for that, and the concierge was beyond helpful.

The gym is quite cool and the food at the restaurant is amazing.

Can't really complain!

Great for shopping, the Scala, restaurants, everything nearby, cross the street and you are in the famed and unique Montenapoleone. Across the street is Armani, hotel, store Nobu.

This great hotel insists on charging for Internet, and an inferior service of Swisscom, with repeated dropped lines, endless wait to connect to sites, and innumerable need of logins, with contorted user ID's and passwords. This is unacceptable for CEO's and staff at business meetings, the price addition of at most of 2% of the room rate, spoils the other 98% of the bill. How shortsighted managements are at this hotel and others in short changing their business clients with poor Internet service, and spoiling what should be a perfect and beautiful stay.

Room Tip: I like inside rooms

This hotel is extraordinarily expensive for our budget but since we regularly go to Italy we thought "what the heck." The quality of the hotel and the location didn't compensate enough for the cost. We've stayed in many Italian hotels that are much nicer and less expensive. Milan has a high cost profile, but we wish there had been room for us at the Hotel Grand Duca di York. We know it has a rather silly name to our ears, but it is ideally located and very nice.

Back to the Grand Hotel, there is nothing to really brag on. The food was okay, the room a little worn and the service a little stuffy.

My family and I recently stayed at the Grand Hotel et de Milan. We had two connecting rooms. The staff service was outstanding and the accommodations were fabulous. We stayed in two other Leading Hotels of the World in Italy on this trip - one in Rome and one in Florence. This hotel was by far the best.

I went back to Grand Hotel et de Milan after a long hiatus. I had liked it a lot 15 years ago and then it became run down. It's renovated rooms were just new enough, maintaining the feeling of Old Italy. Service was mostly very good, pleasant, and warm. And the price beat any other in the area with larger spaces. The location is perfect, steps from Via Montepeleone and all the best shops, La Scala and other top hotels. Breakfast buffet stupidly overpriced unless you are a buffet lover and will eat to your value. Room service food is disappointing, probably in efforts to please varying cultures and tastes. Only other complaint is mattress way too hard and Italy has a problem with overly starched sheets......
Definitely my Milan home for future.

Room Tip: I had rooms on either side and found no noise problems with windows closed.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a beautiful review. We are delighted that you have once again decided to stay at the Grand Hotel et de Milan, and that your stay was overall positive.

I understand that price for the buffet breakfast may be regarded as high, however a recent investigation showed that the cost of breakfast is in line or even lower with other 5 stars hotels in Milan. The full American breakfast at € 35.00 includes, on top of the variety of items, a guest choice of eggs freshly made. Thank you so much for your kind suggestion of using less starch when ironing the linen.

Looking forward to welcoming you back on the occasion of your next visit to Milan hopefully in a near future, I remain.

Recently came back from a weekend Milan.

The overall experience was amazing, everything felt so natural, well oiled machine.
Top notch service.

Breakfast was first class, where both selection and quality stand out.

Thank you so much for making our stay so beautiful.
