“Location is simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

We stayed at the hotel the first two days of the year. Our stay in Milan was short and that’s why we chose a hotel as close to the Duomo as possible. We really enjoyed our stay. The location is simply the best: just two blocks from the Duomo, la Scala, metro station, the shopping district and still very quite. It is an elegant old building. The room was very relaxing, quite and the bed was superb. Breakfast was nothing special, but everything from the mini bar was included in the price. Service was excellent. Only negative point is that we found it quite expensive (170€), but I suppose that’s the price you have to pay if you want such a central location.

We stayed at the hotel diruing a short 3 day visit of Milano. The hotel is located about 10 minutes from 'Il Duomo' and was a great place to be. The included breakfast was satisfying as the free wifi. We had a bathroom that seemed to be refurbished lately, it was very clean and functional. And don't forget to have an aperitif at the bar in the evening, the bar is small bat the bar keeper was very nice and caring. There is a private parking garage (S. Remo, Via Zeccha Vecchia 3) near the hotel, that is quite expensive (30 EUR/day), probably you can find a cheaper one.

We had a very nice room with an terrace. My kids loved the balcony. The room & bathroom were very clean & bright. We loved the bathtub. It looks like its been newly renovated. Front of desk staff were very helpful & friendly. I like the location - although 5 minute walk to the Piazza Duomo, it is on quiet and not a busy road.
The breakfast and mini bar drinks (Aqua and Coke) were included in the price of the room. Breakfast was great - lots of food choices. Free wifi helped a lot. Its a modern hotel in the "old" Milan.

This hotel is close to everything - duomo(which is beautiful), opera house, the fort, museums and most anything you do. Room was great and breakfast was very good. It was rainy while we were there and they have umbrellas as you walk out the door for your use - nice idea. Reception desk was extremely helpful in anything we asked about. Would definitely stay there again. The cathedral is a must to see. We were there on a Sunday morning and they let us in during mass. Organ and music were beautiful.

We arrived early on Train from Paris at 7am, went to the hotel and knowing there won't be any room available for us as the Check-in won't be available until 12pm. We were seated at the lounge and they kindly offer us a breakfast, which is pretty good with breads, cereal buffet etc. Have to say the Scramble eggs is not as nice as I hope for, but there are plenty other food to choose from.

The Room are big, bed are Comfy and bathroom pretty spacey as well. I'm happy choosing this Hotel and will comeback to stay here again in the future.

one more thing the Location is Superbly convenient, Close to major Shopping, duomo, Galleries, etc.

Room Tip: Worth to get the Extra Superior room, more spacious and better view.

We expected a small room in a big city but it was a very comfortable size. Large bathroom with shower/tub and everything looked new. Bed was comfortable and even though our window faced the street, there were hardly any cars going by this side street. Enjoyed the breakfast. Front desk was friendly and helpful also. Location is close to most attractions and the metro. This is in the business district so it is quiet at night. If you want people and excitement, stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: They have some rooms with a balcony that has a table and chairs.
