“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

We stayed at this Hotel on our first trip to Milan in May this year and were really happy. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is to die for!! It's quite a way from the Duomo so be prepared to walk or I suppose you could catch a bus but we prefer to walk when in a new city so you can get a feel for it. The hotel is very close to the train station so it's only a few minutes walk. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you. Would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone.

We returned to the Berna Hotel after a gap of several years. It was a real pleasure to find that the welcome and professionalism of this hotel remain constant. It does not feel as impersonal as many city hotels, there is real feeling that the customer matters here. The management is totally professional yet unobtrusive. the overriding feeling is one of friendliness and helpfulness. The buffet breakfast remains one of the best we have found in Italy. Highly recommended for it's comfort and also for it's convenient closeness to Milano Centrale railway station and also access to the Metro system.

Marvelous breakfast. Welcoming, helpful staff. The only reason I didn't give the room a 5 is the hard bed and the tight shower, but I also understand this is Italy and in a very large city, so those points are being very picky. Would definitely recommend.

We were pleased to find that the reviews on Tripadvisor were accurate in regards to Hotel Berna! The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating with impeccable service. We were upgraded to the new modern facility across the street with a very comfortable room. The mini bar came with refreshing complimentary drinks. The breakfast was the best we had in Italy. Delicious croissants, amazing fresh squeezed carrot juice, and plenty of other hot and cold surprises. If you are looking for a convenient location near the train station, The Hotel Berna cannot be beat!!!

We had a great time at the hotel. The staff were completely accommodating leading up to and during our stay. Every staff member was gracious and happy to help. The room while small was perfect for us as we were using the hotel as a base for our trip to Como and then to the airport. Being close to the train station couldn't have been more convenient. As many restaurants are closed in August, the hotel suggested a good restaurant for dinner. Breakfast was plentiful and they even make you a cappuccino.
If you are looking for a more authentic European hotel, rather than a chain, this is it!

Room Tip: our room was right off the elevator which can be noisy and this was not. I am sure any room would...

From Hotel Bellagio with a lake view to going to a hotel near Milan Central Station, I was not so excited but we are very happy with our stay at Hotel Berna. I am very glad I chose this one for our 2 nights stay in Milan.

We stayed first at the 1st floor and I wanted to change room as I am a light sleeper and I was bothered with the renovation ongoing on the 2nd floor. We were transferred to the 5th floor. I liked the 2 rooms but prefer the room on the 5th floor as it was modern style and of course no disturbance.

The breakfast is the best we have had in our 10 days vacation in Italy. The chef even made a special rice for me for breakfast. Thanks to Jacqueline, one of the staff. We also had the chance to meet the owner who is a very likeable and jolly woman. We really enjoyed our stay.

Free drinks in the ref plus we even got 2 bottles of mineral water when we checked out. Location was perfect as it is very close to the train station. We walked from Duomo Cathedral one night and it was a good 30 min walk back to the hotel. We ate twice in a restaurant called Il Tavolino on the other side. Very good food and just a 10 min walk from the hotel.

All the staff were welcoming and helpful. We had a fantastic stay. Glad I chose this one and thanks to TA reviews who helped me made my decision. In terms of the location, it was not ugly as one traveller here mentioned. I have seen worse for hotels near the central station.We did not feel worried walking at night. Milan was quite isolated when we were there, too surprising for a big city. Reason was it was a holiday on a Friday August 15 and many establishments were closed up to Sunday.

The hotel also has a bar which closes at midnight. There is small food available for free while you are having your cocktail or wine.

Room Tip: Request for a higher floor if you are a light sleeper

This hotel while it doesnt look like much from the outside was actually a very nice hotel. We stayed there for 2 nights at the end of our 2 week vacation. The rooms were small but nice and clean. We were in their other building across the streeet which was a bit weird, but fine. Breakfast was very good and the staff was EXTREMELY helpful. The helped us with train tickets, restaurant reservations and when my daughter had an allergic reaction, a doctor and hospital. I would stay here again
