We have just arrived back from a 2.5 day shopping trip in Milan and we stayed at the Hotel Dei Cavallieri.
As we do with all our holidays / breaks, because I am lazy, we booked a business double room at this hotel through the British Airways holiday finder. We arrived on saturday afternoon and the check in was a pleasant experience. We were given a room on the third floor.
The room was a great size and nicely laid out. The furnishings and decor were extremely dated and nothing like the rooms that the website depicted. We had two issues with the room. Firstly there was a huge concrete pillar directly outside the window which blocked any sun coming in through the window and leaving the room extremely dark. Secondly the bathroom had a strong smell coming from the drains.
I asked to change rooms which the staff had no issue in arranging. I was given another room within a few minutes. Arriving at the second room we thought we had hit the jackpot. It was much more modern with a great amount of light and space.
When kicking off my shoes I unfortunately came across a used condom just poking out from under the bed, which was mildly traumatising! The bathroom was of great size and luxury furnishing but again the housekeeping standards were a little lax and it wasn't somewhere that I felt totally comfortable.
We cannot complain about the service from the staff at the hotel, they were fantastic! The location is pretty much perfect for those who want to be within 3-5 minute walk from the Duomo. The breakfast was good and the roof top bar was fabulous.
