Reviewed 24 May 2014

Great location, good-size room, nice and quiet. Large bathroom (we arrived from Sicily where bathrooms were tiny), lots of towels. Breakfast was excellent, staff really friendly and helpful. Wi-fi worked at a good speed, soft drinks in the mini-bar were included. I really can't believe this hotel is only a 3-star - we've stayed in plenty of 5-star hotels that weren't a patch on this one!

This hotel has all you want from a place to stay in the middle of Milan be it for business or private travel: very friendly and helpful staff, comfortable and clean rooms, quiet, the air con always works (!), breakfast is good and the internet for free, fast and reliable. There is a curtsey bar in the room. The hotel has a bit of an old-fashion flair to it without being outdated or sad. Both metro and tram are just around the corner, the Duomo and main shopping areas are only a short stroll away. There is a really nice Trattoria a few minutes around the corner if you come in late on business. Stayed here many times and will come back whenever they have availability - the sad part about being great is that they are often fully booked. Try their partner hotel Spadari di Duomo which is also fantastic.

This hotel was a gem in a great location not far from the duomo. My family of four had two rooms which were a good size, very clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was outstanding and we loved the breakfast buffet included in the reasonable price. I would highly recommend this hotel. Be careful regarding transportation because the Milan taxi drivers were on strike while we were there.

We stayed overnight in Milano on our way from Sicily to Chur Switzerland by train. I like small hotels for the friendliness and service. And the York fits the bill. We had some questions about our travel and the hotel staff answered our emails promptly. The desk was helpful in arranging reservations at nearby Trattoria Milanes for dinner and described short sightseeing walks nearby. It is in a delightful neighborhood with sidewalk cafes and lovely shops. A delightful store, Pecks, is my dream of a deli made in heaven. The hotel is a good value and made a memorable day during our 2 week vacation. If ever we are back in Milano, We’ll stay here.

Room Tip: We rented the balcony room with satisfaction.

This was our last stay and it was really a head-turner in terms of beauty and service. I had my phone stolen in Cinque Terre and got no assistance from our hotel operators there (Toretta) but our lovely Barbara got us a number for Verizon, hooked us up and the phone turned off. She was amazing and also recommended great places to eat. I told her if she ever came to America, I would instantly hire her. But this hotel was grand. Our room overlooked a small courtyard impeccably maintained and we could access it from our room! The room was very well appointed. The bathroom was spacious and like many Italian hotel showers, breezy ;^). There was a tiny little bar off the lobby where enjoyed a negroni and complimentary finger foods sitting in overstuffed chairs. We were perhaps a 10 minute walk to the Cathedral. Off the main drag and because we wanted to buy some Italian goods to send home, convenient to what I can only describe as Milan's version of Neiman Marcus. Breakfast was delicious as well. Cudos to this place and to the lovely, lovely Barbara.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the courtyard!

We stayed at the Grand Duca di York in the early May, the first leg of our trip to northern Italy. The hotel is well staffed and the people who work there are friendly, helpful and fluent in English. Breakfasts are plentiful and terrific, so we skipped lunch most days. Best of all is the location ... the hotel is in the center of town, so most sites -- museums, the Duomo, shopping ... are walkable from the hotel.
If we ever return to MIlan, we'll stay at the Gran Duca di York again.
