“Pleasant Leisure stay near Sempione Park”
Reviewed 25 June 2012

Just returned  from a pleasant stay at the Lancaster. Rooms are clean, not large but big enough. We stayed in a twin room on the 4th floor. There is very little traffic noise and certainly not enough to bother you.  There is a free safe in the room if you need one. The reception staff speak  good English and are very helpful and supply a city map if you need one. Located close to Sempione park and a short walk from train station so getting around is not a problem. Breakfast is cereals, breads or croissants - not a huge selection but certainly enough to start the day. We booked with Kuoni hotels which is part of the Kuoni group and they use Octopus travel for their admin.  Booking was very smooth and the price was much cheaper than some of the others online.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights last November during our 3 week Italy trip. The location is good - you just cross through the park to the castle and you are very close to all the sites. It was maybe 10 minutes easy walk from the subway station. Restaurants in the area were pretty expensive, but we found a great little place nearby (I wish I could remember the name). The owner was there and helped the waiters who didn't speak English. He looked at our order and then proceeded to bring us samples of other things he thought we should try.

The owners of the hotel were very nice and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful. The room is nice. I would stay here agian if we go back.

I wish we had stayed another day, especially since I was not feeling well during our 1 full day there and needed to rest instead of seeing some of the things on our list (like the Monumental Cemetery). We had a morning tour that took us to see The Last Supper (VERY worth it-amazing). Going to the roof of the Duomo is worth it.

Hotel Lancaster was exceptional value for our 3 night stay.Our room was clean and comfortable and the buffet breakfast provided plenty of choice.Our room did lack tea and coffee making facilities which meant having to pay room service for a cup of black tea.Apart from this inconvenience we had a comfortable and pleasant stay.

We have just spent five days in Milan and we would stay again at this delightful hotel. Our room 424 was very quite as it overlooked the side. The room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was plentiful and the staff extremely helpful. There are plenty of cafes and bars in walking distance although it takes a good 20 minutes to walk to Duoma which is quite enjoyable as you go through the beautiful Parco Sempione.

My sister and I recently stayed here for a night. The staff were very helpful, the room was very clean and the breakfast good. We loved that it was a leisurely stroll to the city, walking through the most beautiful park, the impressive Arc delle Pace and other things of interest along the way. Cute trams were nearby if you didn't want to walk and the Cadorna Station in walking distance or very short taxi ride. Would certainly stay here again. Internet worked well, and they forgot to charge us, then told us we didnt need to pay extra which was very kind. The internet was excellent and speed was very good. I was not sure if I agreed with hotels charging guests for wifi, however, based on other experiences, I am happy to pay for good, reliable service. It is most frustrating when it doesn't work well, or is slow.

We had a very good stay at Hotel Lancaster over 3 days. The 4th floor room was quiet, clean with an excellent bathroom. For breakfast there is a great choice of food and the staff are happy to give you a second capuccino. It is easy to walk to most areas or jump on the number 1 tram which goes everywhere you may want to visit. Good for the price. Recommended.

location: This hotel is outside the main City centre, but we walked to and from the centre without any problems. Takes 15-20 mins to walk. Threr are plenty of trams that can take you into town ( but then you miss out of seeing some nice shops and eat gelati on the way). The train station cadorna ( with direct trains to Malpensa) is ca 900 m away, also walkable. I felt safe walking to e hotel at night (walked with my boyfriend, but saw many young women walking on their own, which indicates to me thst it is a safe area).

Hotel: its clean, the room we had was large compared to other rooms we have stayed in. Our room (425) had a balcony. Our room had a fridge and a couch ( nice to know). The breakfast was ok, cereal, breadrolls, sweet stuff (cakes). The service was great too. Smiling and welcoming staff.

I would stay here again.
