Reviewed 17 May 2014

The hotel is in an excellent location....within a few blocks of the Duomo, the Galleria,and Via Dante for shopping, a short walk to the Brera area for dining, and the Park and Castle, which has a wonderful outdoor street market. The hotel is set back from the main streets, and thus it was very quiet at all times. No street noise at all. Our room was spotless, great bathroom with a deep soaking tub, comfortable beds. The generous mini bar was included in the rate. The breakfast, also included, was excellent. Ahhhh....the cappuccino! Snacks available in the evening at the bar. And last but not least..... The staff was superb. Thank you for making our first visit to Milan very special.

Selected this hotel based upon recommendation in Rick Steves guidebook and trip advisor reviews. Location was excellent. Next to Accademia and quick walk to Duomo and La Scala. Room and common areas very clean.

Communications with hotel prior to arrival received quick responses.

I stayed here for 2 nights for a business meeting. The location is perfect. Situated on a quiet side street only a couple of minutes walk from the metro and 5 mins from the Duomo and the central shopping street. It had everything I wanted from a hotel - very friendly helpful staff, free wifi, useful toiletries, good storage space, excellent breakfast included in the price and comfortable beds. My room was spotless and the bathroom positively gleaming. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone visiting Milan.

We arrived in Milan after a very, very long flight from Australia. We arrived at Milans Malpensa. We airport at 7am and requested early check in and this was managed as quickly as possible. While we were waiting we were served wonderful coffees and an an assortment of pastries for free. After feelng a bit refreshed, it was only a short walk to the plaza of the Duomo and only spending a brief time there and we headed back and was able to,check in. The rooms met all expectations and the staff went out of their way to help us. We booked the last night of our trip in Italy (a month later) there before we flew out in the morning. Travelling can be quite tiring and stressful and The Gran Duca di York, helped make the journey a bit smoother!

The hotel, located on a quiet street within a few minutes from Duomo, is a gem. It's perfectly positioned, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean.
Breakfast is unusually rich by Italian standards, rooms offer you an excellent comfort. Wi-fi works like a breeze, and you often can drinks for free from the mini-bar.
And above all that, the staff is extremely helpful and polite.

Want a moderate priced hotel in the heart of Milan? This is it. The location could not be better.
Yet it is on a small quiet street so street noise is not a problem. We checked in April without a reservation, 150E for a nice sized double room. Modern bathroom, new furniture, everything about the room and the hotel was excellent including a nice buffet breakfast. The Duomo and square was two blocks away. We arrived on the Malpensa Express from the airport at the Cadrona station. It was an easy 15 minute walk to the Gran Duca di York from there.

This is a lovely, small hotel that feels like home from home. Elegant, without being stuffy, clean, and excellently placed for the Milan Cathedral, the Castle and Leonardo's "Last Supper".

The breakfast was excellent, with a wide selection of cereals, fresh fruit salad, yogurt, pastries, rolls, cheeses and meats as well as a hot breakfast selection of scrambled eggs, sausages and bacon. Staff are friendly, although front desk could be better.

My one complaint was what happened to us over the parking outside the hotel. We parked outside the hotel and left the car there while we booked in. On the website it says that parking is in a designated parking area that costs €30 a day. As we thought we didn't have an option when the desk manager asked us if we wanted to use this facility we said yes. We were given a room above the front entrance, and so therefore noticed that a black mercedes benz had occupied the parking space we were in originally all day and all night, when I asked the same desk manager how this was allowed the following morning, he told me that they have 2 parking spaces outside the hotel for guests!

When I asked the gentleman why he hadn't told us that, he said that I hadn't asked!!! As a guest it is not for me to ask about things unknown to me. It is their duty to inform their guests of these options.

Had he taken the time to come out from behind his desk to see where we had parked he could have saved us €30. It is not the money, it is the principle!!! This spoiled an otherwise very nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a back room away from the road. It wasn't the traffic that woke us up but the dragging o...
