I've stayed twice now at the Gran Duca, and enjoyed both stays. The Gran Duca is not a fancy place, but it's clean and has all the necessities. The two rooms I stayed in (even the single room) were decently sized and rare for Italy -- had good-sized bathrooms. A nice touch is the free minibar with bottled water and sodas. There was also free wifi, which was more reliable than some of the paid wifi I've used at other hotels. While I slept well during my stays, a drawback of the rooms is that it's very easy to hear noise coming from the hallways; so depending on how courteous the other guests are, this may have an impact on your stay.
Breakfast at the hotel is very good, with a nice selection of breads/pastries, cold cuts, cheeses, juices, coffees made to order, fresh fruits, etc.
The location of the hotel is excellent -- a few minutes walk to the Duomo, but on a quiet street. A minor issue actually is that the street is so quiet that it's a little difficult to find. Definitely have google maps or a printout ready, unless you're already very familiar with Milano.
Even with such a great location, comfortable rooms, and hearty breakfast, the Gran Duca is a bargain. I can't imagine other hotels in Milano offering the same comforts at such a low price.
