“Outstanding choice in Milano”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

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.

5 mins away from the central station, very convenient if you're making Milan your home base for sightseeing the surrounding areas (Genova, Cinque Terre, Verona, Florence, Venice, Torino, the lakes).
On arrival we had fresh fruit and free drinks (water, juice, cokes) in the minibar in our room. There's a small lounge when you get in the hotel where you can have tea or coffee and crackers any time of the day. The breakfast is great, a big continental buffet plus bacon and eggs, fruit, cereals, desserts... The hotel staff was very friendly. We had a very pleasant stay.

I would reccomend this hotel to anyone.

Easy to find location. We took an airport shuttle bus that dropped us off at the Central Train Station, and it was an easy 10min walk to the hotel (asked a passing Carabinieri for confirmation of directions). Hotel is in the middle of what seems to be the financial district (it's a shout away from the offices of an accounting giant PriceWaterhouse Coopers or similar). So lots of nice small cafes dotted around (and a McDonalds for the unadventurous, or homesick American :). It's also 5mins walk away from the Metro. In short, very convenient, to explore Milan from.

The rooms: Small. But to be fair, typically Italian/European. How small? 2 Asians like us, no problem. Plus 3 pieces of luggage, bit of a problem. If you've liked McDonalds since 7yrs old, more problems. Since 3 years old, please don't try to do an American Idol in the shower cubicle. Room was however very clean and comfortable. Front desk was friendly enough but with too much a sprinkle of Italian "laissez-faire" if that makes sense.

Stay here for: The Breakfast. Basically every food group you can think of for breakfast is available. Plus a chocolate fountain.

Million $ question "Would you stay here again": Yes I would. I would rate my 1 night in Hotel Berna as a 7/10. But only if I was very lazy and didn't look for a B&B on tripadvisor like I did for all the other Italian cities that I visited and stayed in(They were all so wonderful and far superior value for the experience, not the $$$).

We had 3 nights at this hotel late april and as all previous reviews everything was spot on .Very pleasant staff and the breakfast buffet was something else. You would be very fussy not to be satisfied. Maybe eating out for dinner options not so well catered for but al in all you will find a few places for a reasonable meal.Would be happy to return and recommend to friends.

The reception staff were very helpful with our questions on purchase of metro and train tickets. Having read a lot on the safety problems around Milan train station, it was reassuring that the hotel staff was helpful in giving us directions around the area. There is also a Billa supermarket within 5min walk from the hotel. It is a small supermarket but good enough to get some amenities.

The room is a bit small but cosy enough for us. Big bathroom though. The free minibar with non-alcoholic drinks and small packets of amaretti biscuits placed on our beds each day is very thoughtful for travelers.

There is a great selection of food for breakfast, and I can order my daily morning macchiato, a necessary energy booster.

The hotel is very near to train station and very convenient for day trips to nearby places like Bergamo, not to mention fast travel time (around 15min) to Duomo and Montenapoleone for shopping.

Room Tip: We have asked for a room at the higher floor and away from the elevator. Have no problem with noise...
