I just completed a very short but memorable 3-day stay at the Hotel Berna in central Milano. I was initially concerned that the hotel is not within walking distance of Il Duomo but I realized after checking in that the hotel's location is in fact one of its greatest assets. The fact that one can walk to the hotel from the architecturally stunning (but very busy) Milano Centrale Station makes this hotel very ideal for travelers visiting the city for a short time. The area around the hotel is filled with many restaurants that will suit any budget, a fact that unfortunately may not be true for hotels very near the Duomo as restaurants there charge more for the same menu fare. For shopping, one can easily walk down to Corso Buenos Aires within 10 minutes. If one's budget allows for more luxurious shopping options, then the ultra chic Via Montenapoleone, Via Alessandro Manzoni, as well as the Corso Vittorio Emmanuele can easily be reached by the efficient Metro System which is a 5-minute walk from Hotel Berna. Lastly, The Duomo is only 4-stops away from the station near the hotel.
Upon arrival just before noon, we were allowed to enter our rooms even before the standard check-in time. This was of course appreciated since we could freshen up a bit before enjoying the city's many beautiful sights. The assorted beverages in the room's minibar, a very sumptuous buffet breakfast as well as wireless internet connectivity were all complimentary. In terms of room size, we booked 2 standard singles and felt immediately that it provided ample space for a solo traveler. But the highlight of our stay would have to be the warmth and hospitality which the hotel personnel generously showered to all its guests. From the hotel owner to the front-line staff, all provided a level of attentiveness that in my many years of traveling I seldom come across even when staying at high-end deluxe hotels that charge atrocious room rates.
Another trip to Milano might not be possible anytime soon for me but if given the golden opportunity to visit this beautiful city once more, Hotel Berna will again be my preferred address.
