“Good value in an expensive city”
Reviewed 1 January 2010

We found ti hard to find a hotel in Milan for our honeymoon after splurging in Venice! This hotel is fine, good-sized rooms, nice breakfast, helpful staff, but it is a fair walk from the city centre. We are both keen walkers, and found it a long way on a hot day. Also, there are not many restaurants locally. Public transport is good: find the train/tram/bus maps in the free tourist paper and you can get around easily enough. We stayed three nights in Milan and enjoyed it, but two would have been enough.

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night last month. After an all night flight from Singapore, then a lengthy bus/taxi trip through rush hour traffic, we reached the hotel just after 9am. We were delighted to be told that our room would be ready in a few minutes (no extra charge). The very helpful desk gave us all the information we needed for getting to the main square (the hotel is a lengthy walk from the Duomo, but is on a main tram route, so we found it very convenient). There is an excellent supermarket just down the street, and several restaurants nearby. Our room had a quirky but pleasant decor, and was clean and spacious. It faced the street, but its double window system meant there was no street noise. The breakfast next morning provided a good choice of dishes, and a nice touch was the cappucino made to order, rather than the machine variety that seems to be ubiquitous in Italian hotels now.
Overall, while it is not inexpensive, it is a hotel that I would certainly rate highly, and I would readily return.

I stayed at Hotel D'Este for two weeks in May 2009 when I was visting Bocconi U. I highly recommend it. The hotel is just a few minutes away from Bocconi and in the middle of a neighborhood with tons of restaurants, bars, and stores. The hotel staff is courteous and speaks English well. The cleaning service does a good job and is punctual. The internet connection is realible and fast. The breakfast presents a nice choice of items with excellent service, and is open until 11 am. There are various free newspapers in the lobby. There are special rates for stays associated with Bocconi. If you are visiting Milan as a tourist this may not be the best place, as the center is a 20-30 minute walk away, or a 10 minute taxi ride. However, if you order a taxi at the lobby it will be there within a few minutes.

I recently stayed at this hotel for work. The rooms are very very small. I know that European hotels are usually small but I had a single room and found the rooms to be tiny. The breakfast was decent. The location is not in the center of town but is close if you are visiting Bocconi University. If I stayed in Milan again, I would most likely choose a hotel closer to the center of the city.

We spent one night here while apartment hunting in Milan. Staff is extremely courteous, rooms are comfortable, breakfast is good and included with your room and best of all, there is free wireless internet in the lobby.
