Reviewed 27 June 2014

The room is spacious with kitchen. bathroom is big. We are on the 4th floor with a room facing the Milan Cathedral. You can't find a better window than this. Next to shopping center and pedestrian street. A lot of shops/restaurants nearby. Taxi station and metro station right in front of the building.

Not quite the "Glamour" apartment as one expects. Great location but on a pedestrian street so car/taxi cannot come unless you have Marcello with you. Breakfast was to be included as per booking but apparently not so! A discount card was given instead. Also our airport transfer costed us Euro 60 more than the price informed! On the whole all amenities are present but a bit run down. We stayed at via passarelle 4.

The apartment was enormous, we booked an apartment with Duomo view and to my surprise it was directly facing the front façade of the magnificent Duomo, one of the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe. The apartment had everything including lovely marble bathrooms. The style of decoration may not be to everyones taste, but pleasant and very clean. We were greeting by Marcello, a lovely guy who spoke perfect English, he was very professional and friendly . We then shopped and ate in the wonderful cafes and restaurants literally metres from our. It wasn't cheap but Milan isn't, it is truly worth the extra money, we always felt safe, always had something to look at, the view was amazing and I would absolutely stay there again.

Room Tip: Go for the best room you can afford, it is worth it

Stayed at the Passagio Duomo 2 apartment with our two teen- aged boys.

Excellent location and right in front of the cathedral. The view of the cathedral from the bedroom window is dramatic and spectacular. We stayed at the 2 bedroom suite, both rooms were big by European standard. Furniture and decor is reasonably good. Mattresses were really bad and need to be changed. Rooms are situated on the third floor and accessible by well functioning, old fashioned lift.

The support staff was very helpful and courteous. They were waiting for us to help us check in and the concierge was very efficient with travel tips. Location is most suitable for walking around Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuel II, via Manzini and Sforza Castle.

we booked this apartment for 4 adults, through hotelscombined.com and they show it as 5 stars apartments. our apartment was described as 2 bedrooms suite ( at least the photos showed that ) once inside we discovered a simple quadruple room ( kind of YMCA dorms ) , the mentioned extra long beds are camp beds ( 90cmx180cm ) curtains and towels are there since the apartment was built in the last century. you can close windows fighting with it and its not soundproof at all, after midnight you can hear people discussing in the street , even being in the third floor. the apartment is well decorated especially the chinese carpet in the middle of the room where pattern is done by shoes traces.the entrance of the building is dirty, lift again from last century and always blocked because doors were not closed properly.
well i can continue describing for pages but i think what i mentioned is already enough not to use it.
i had an nice experience last summer with the apartments of the hotel town house 8, and it was really great , we had access to all facilities of the hotel, check-in and out, concierge, breakfast ...nothing to compare with GLAMOUR. it had also a similar location near to duomo.

Glamourtrip, Proprietario at Glamour Apartments, responded to this reviewResponded 21 November 2013

Dear Mr Tarek,

I'm sorry that you did'nt appreciated your stay, but frankly I find this review quite exagerate and

even a bit unfair.

Going to the facts :

You've got exactely what you've booked : The Duomo Open Space (the one with the red sofa).

I've checked on the website where you've made the reservation and this unit is clearely named

"Superior Studio With Duomo View (4 Adults)" just as on the website of booking com.

So is surely not our fault if you where expecting to have separate rooms because this unit does'nt has separate rooms. To have separate rooms you should had booked the so named ".
Superior one bedroom with Duomo view"; in this unit the living room is in fact a second bedroom so you can sleep separately, but you did'nt booked this one so you should'nt blame us for this.

Regarding the "camp beds", as you've called them; we don't have any camp beds. They are regular single beds of 2 meters lenght, with a very good orthopedic structure with wooden slats and thick and comfortable matrasses of very high quality. They just don't have an external structure so they can be more easily removed in case the guests does'nt need them into the room.

About the noise :
If you properly close the windows, which are sound proof, you cannot hear anybody talking on the street; this is indeed an exaggeration and false.

Of course as in every big town there is noise coming from the traffic and Duomo square does'nt make exception. And the the worst are the street cleaning trucks expecially because unfortunately they work more during the night.

But still it's not so disturbing as you say for a normal sleeper.
Of course if somebody is very sensible to noise some kind of ear plug could be recommended, as for the great majority of the hotels anyway. We are now starting to provide a "good sleeping" courtesy kit that include ears plugs and eye patch for some units where is not possible to have an absolute darkness.

We also have in program to refurbish the external shutters by the end of this year in order to

significantly reduce this issue.

Regarding your claim on the courtains and carpets we regularly wash them several times per year, normally every 2 monthes if there's no special need.

Finally, about the towels, we could probably do better and also because the water is getting harder we'll find better solutions in the washing process to make them more soft, but thank you for the suggestion and we've already bought some brand new sets in order to improve our service.

As you suggested to the users a competitor of us, for my personal curiosity I've just get a look

to it on tripadvisor and despite of your ungenerous review we still have a better ranking than them according to all the guets, so it must be something subjective and fortunately for us we're not so bad as you've written here.


Kind regards
Marco
