WORLDHOTEL Cristoforo Colombo
Ranked #60 of 426 Hotels in Milan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 December 2013

The tiniest room ever in my life! I was traveling just with my hand luggage, and believe me, it was quite difficult to accommodate it inside the room. Be prepared to move yourself cautiously into the room, and also into the bathroom - shaving myself was not an easy task there. Safer is pretty small too, this is why my iPad had to stay out of it. Indeed, the room itself was the only problem with this excellently located hotel in Milan, close to several top attractions (at walking distance from Duomo). There is a metro station in front of it, and Corso Buenos Aires, while not upscale, can be considered a paradise for shopping. Staff, considering Italian standards, was friendly, and breakfast was okay. I did not try the spa (complimentary for guests up to 2 hours a day), but people told me it is very good. For sure, Cristoforo Colombo is a good choice in Milan.

We stayed there for a shopping weekend and loved it. Everything is close and the rooms are very comfortable. The rates are absolutely ok considering the quality. We would definitely come back. Staff is very friendly and did do their best to make feel us comfortable.

We stayed at this hotel whilst visiting the opera at La Scala and it was very good indeed. The staff were friendly and helpful - no sign of anyone who was not extremely keen to look after hotel guests - we had no complaints whatever. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, good breakfasts, nice bathrooms and a very good location, close to the Metro. Very good value indeed and we would strongly recommend.

Thank you to all the staff there who helped us - especially those on reception.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are quieter as are those at the rear of the building.

We stayed here in September for four nights and were very impressed by a number of things.

Firstly, the hotel was maintained to an impeccable standard for this price range, the rooms were very well looked after and clean.

Secondly, the staff were excellent - the front desk staff couldn't have been more helpful, particularly in recommending some very good restaurants on request and in general advice.

Thirdly, the location was ideal - a few steps away from the Metro that could whisk you to Duomo and the centre of town in minutes and not more than a few minutes taxi ride from Navigli and other spots of interest,

Fourthly, the breakfast room is well stocked with a huge range of all the necessary ingredients to fuel a day of tourism and accompanied by great service.

Finally, there is a spa/health and fitness centre included in the price. Very good value.

Our rooms were quiet, albeit with virtually no view to speak of. But who expects a room with a view anyway?

Highly recommended, for all the reasons above - and one of my friends has already stayed there since!

For exploring Milan, this hotel is really well located and main tourist attractions. Easy taxi ride from Linate for about €15.

The room was a little tired but clean and functional. For such a central hotel it was really great value.

Our room was spacious and elegant and the large bathroom was the best! The hotel is located in an upscale part of the city, close to the Metro and buses. The breakfast was wonderful - with lots of delicious choices.

At first glance the hotel looks new, luxurious and well classified for their four stars, but from check-in the stars were slowly fading! Mainly because of the exceptionally pour service level of the elderly female receptionist who was more interested in looking pissed than helpful. She was directly rude and noninformative! Please do yourselves a favour.. avoid her, unless you enjoy Italian arrogance. Nevertheless all other staff were quite satisfying. Furthermore the soundproofing of the rooms were terrifying, you could basically here everything..even the drop of a needle! With these two unsatisfying experiences, the morning buffet appeared better than it actually was! Despite these rough words I must admit that the location of the hotel is perfect for the price and the fact that there is included two hours of spa relaxation, each day, only makes the price better!
