We wanted somewhere clean, modern, comfortable, central for our weekend shopping trip to Milan.
Despite "recommendations" from Milanese friends to stay at one the old grand 5star hotels - our past experience is that Italy doesn't do old grand 5star very well - we chose Una Cusani on basis of the reviews.
The location is excellent - a short walk to most places and occasional tram.
Its right up the road from La Brera (bit disappointing for shops)and walking distance to the Duomo. (btw at end of road is fish merchant "da claduio" that does excellent aperotivo until 9.00pm - you stand up and eat little morsels of raw or marinated fish, very popular but just turn up.)
We had a suite - good size and interesting layout. Only gripe was that one of the double glazed windows wouldn't shut properly giving us exposure to full noise of traffic but wasnt too bad.
Breakfast is good standard. Staff are all very friendly and generally good (restaurant tips poor though)
One tip if you want to see Last Supper (Santa Maria delle Grazie) - guide books will tell you not to bother without booking. We turned up and saw "sold out" signs but asked. We went straight in - like everyone else who turned up with no ticket. I imagine peak summer would not be like this but this was Easter Good Friday.
Internet was a joke at this hotel>
