“Good mid range option for Milan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

Location appears good on paper, but the main life of Milan is actually on the other side of the central garden. There is still a bit of life around here and we found at least one good resturant nearby, ask host for recommendations. Expect a couple of kilometres walk prior to getting to the real action though.

Note additional cost of 20 Euros a day for carpark if required. Also 40c per page printing.

Room was good size, well cleaned, slight peppery smell disgusing a bit of general staleness in the air either from building age or smoking floors, no real issue though.
Good service, good breakfast, good common areas, very nice bathroom, giant bed.

Traffic gets noisy around 6:00 am, so will need ear plugs for a sleep in.

Room Tip: Soem have a balacony, not sure if they are same price range. Perhaps ask.

Within walking distance of the train station, The Duomo, and the shopping district. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly with questions regarding area attractions. The hotel was very clean and in a safe and quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay here and strongly recommend it to other travelers.

Stayed there with my teenage daugther for 2 nights. Lovely hotel with a period atmosphere (end of 19th century). Very friendly and obliging staff. Great location close to the park. The downside is a small shower cubicle, although that may be only in our room. We were told that all rooms were of different sizes. We are both very slim, so it was not a problem, but I believe some big people may struggle.
Also the transport is close but not immediately round the corner. Otherwise perfect.

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2011. On arrival the reception staff were very helpful and even though we arrived early we were able to access our rooms straight away. The male receptionist went through all of the useful information with us, helping us with how to use the public transport and other information that we required to do our sight seeing. The rooms were very clean, which is sometimes difficult in older hotels, but everything was spotless and the shower was very good. Breakfast had a good choice and there was always plenty with fresh cheese, meats & bread being brought out whenever they were running low. The bar was always open for us whatever time we came in, with crisps & nuts been presented when we ordered. Milan was a great city but expensive. If we go back to Milan would go back to this hotel & would recommend it to anyone.

We spent 5 nights at the Lancaster in June. The room was clean and comfy, though a bit small. The breakfast was fine with a good variety of sweet and savory offerings. The hotel is very conveniet for getting around the city - with easy access to the trolleys, and good walking. The Corso Sempione, a street filled with restaurants, is just a block away. And Parco Sempione is a few blocks away with walking paths, playgrounds, and people watching. Milan has great museums, parks and a variety of sites and neighborhoods.

We only had one night in Milan, and this hotel was our choice. We could not have chosen better! The photos simply do not do justice to this lovely and elegant hotel. We had a superior room which was large by Italian hotel standards, with a very modern bathroom complete with a very, very deep soaking tub that was such a welcome after a long day of walking. Every amenity available was top notch. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the linens were crisp and clean. The hotel staff was impeccable! They arranged for an early taxi for us to the airport and even offered to have breakfast ready for us when we left at 6 AM! We asked if there was a more economical means of getting to the Milan Maplpensa airport since the taxi was 95 Euro. The gentleman at the front desk directed us to the local train stop which had a non-stop train to the airport for 11 Euro. It was only a 10 Euro taxi ride to the train station, so this was perfect. He told us it would let us out right at the terminal. He was absolutely correct! We certainly made the right decision with the Lancaster Hotel in Milan. If we return, we would definitely stay here again!

Thanks again tripadvisor! We never travel without tripadvisor!
