“Excellent Hotel in Milan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Gran Duca di York. The location ( just a few blocks from the Pizza Dumo), our room and the breakfast were excellent. More importantly, the people who work at the hotel were also excellent. From the folks at the front desk with their great restaurant recommendations, to the young lady making us Cappuccino in the morning, all of them went out of there way to make our stay enjoyable. A good example was on the morning we were leaving (at 5 AM in to catch an early flight) the front desk person, on his own, went and made Cappuccino for my wife and I while we waited for the taxi. That was very special and very much appreciated by us. We would highly recommend this hotel if you’re going to stay in Milan

Stayed a week at the Duca di York. The staff makes you feel at home. They notice what you like and make sure they can get it for you. The front desk is of great help to a foreigner such as myself, able to give clear directions and they even booked a train for my wife and I to visit venice. Very good location and walking distance to The Duomo of Milan. Will be coming back for sure.

Great hotel, great location, reasonable price & comfortable room. What more could you want. Would recommend to anyone. Area is also super quiet. Breakfast was decent & nice service. Will be looking forward to next stay at the Gran Duca di York the next time we are in Milan.

Stayed 4 nights at the Gran Duca di York at the start to our 5 week journey through Italy in Sept/Oct 2013. The hotel is small and so was our room but it is well appointed and clean. The appeal of this hotel is its location in a quiet side street close to the Duomo piaza in the centre of Milan's business district but within walking distance of some major attractions as well as the metro, buses and trams. The breakfast here was easily the best of our trip, plentiful with a choice of cereals, eggs, bacon, yoghurt, pastries, cakes, fruit, meats, cheeses, juices and fresh coffee served up at request, but for the price you would expect this. The rooms were well serviced and the staff were always helpful and courteous. An effort has been made with the interior decorating to give the rooms an authentic old Italian feeling with the wallpaper, paintings/prints and furniture, however it retained a freshness. Gran Duca di Yortk was a good way to start our holiday.

I have stayed at the Gran Duca di York twice now and both times I have been blown away by the fantastic service. Nothing is ever too much trouble, all the staff speak excellent English and were happy to research hotels and car rentals and flights for me on the italian internet as well as help me plan my stay in Milan and recommend restaurants etc, The rooms are excellent as is the breakfast.
The location is perfect for seeing all the site but also in a quiet street
Thank you for all your help I will recommend my friends stay no where else in Milan

Room Tip: single rooms are very reasonably priced and a good size

I stayed here for two nights in a classic room and found the location to be the stand out feature. I took the Malpensa Express to Milano Cadorna and then the metro to the Cordusio stop, from here the hotel is only a few minutes walk. Piazza del Duomo and the main shopping areas are only a 5 minute walk.

The hotel is located on a quiet street which is terrific considering it's location. The facade of the building is nice as is the reception area. Check-in/check-out where a breeze. The room was fine for the time I spent in it and I had a good night sleep both nights although the bed was a tad hard. I would agree with some other reviews the some parts of the room are a bit tired and worn but it was what I expected before I arrived so I can't complain. The free wifi, water/soft drinks and breakfast are real plus points for hotel. The breakfast consists of cereal, biscuits, cakes, pastries, breads, eggs/bacon and fruit juice/tea/coffee. I thought the selection and quality was very good.

No problems with staying here again.

The hotel is not quite what the website depicts, I expected much more. It is a solid three star hotel, a bit worn and faded, especially the reception and the breakfast room.

The room is ok (the ones with the terrace are much better) a bit small, with an open closet but you'll find everything you need. Wallpaper is starting to peel but they do a good job in keeping it up, nice and clean. Breakfast could be better. Very crowded room, a few tables. I had to skip breakfast one morning as I didn't have the time to wait.

Excellent location, on a side street with no traffic. Good suggestions for restaurants. Good value.

All in all a good pick but don't expect too much and you'll be ok.

Room Tip: Rooms with terrace are lovely
