Reviewed 17 August 2005

Location was great...room comfortable...great bar/restaurant...and, staff very helpfull!! My husband and I just came back from a trip to Italy. We spend a couple of days in Milan, where we stayed at the Gray hotel. We loved the hotel!! It is centrally located (a block or so from the Duomo) which makes it very convenient. There are also lots of great restaurants nearby. Contrary to other reviews, we did not find it noisy at all (I was a little worried about that because I am generally very easily bothered by noise when I am trying to go to sleep). The room we stayed in was simply georgous (although a little on the small side)!! The decor was modern, the bed comfortable and the bathroom had very nice amenities. The staff was very helpfull whenever we had questions. Overall, I would recommend this hotel. In fact, I am looking forward to staying there again.

Having just arrived in Milano and adapting to the rush of traffic, we pulled in to the first hotel we saw in downtown Milano. The Gray is visually impressive. The massive hot pink swing in the lobby is quite unique. Our room was quite large. Huge tub in the bedroom and well appointed bathroom. The ultra modern bedroom was nice but not particularly comfortable. The only option for comfortable seating for reading was on the bed. The electronic lighting and curtains were nice, once you figured them out! Our main critique of The Gray was the incredible noise during the night. It was impossible to get a good night sleep in the room we had. Noise continued on until 3:30 am and then started again at 5:00 am. However, the saving grace was an amazing dinner we had in the dining room. After ordering our selections we were treated to a house compliment of a grilled prune wrapped in bacon and served on a petit salad. It was worth the $330 euros (well maybe). Highly recommend the restaurant. The Gray has a marvelous local so close to El Duomo, if you can secure a room that is not on the noisy side we had, give it a try. The lobby bar is very cool and the server we had was originally from Cuba and most helpful. All the staff we encountered we very courteous and helpful.

I reviewed lots of hotels before deciding on the Gray, and after staying in many 5* hotels during a European trip this was the most disappointing. Being in the architecture field I was eager to see what the hotel had in store. All the reviews were accurate, it was calm, cool, chiq and dark. However, it was a little too 'cool', the room was very small (no plasma tv or Stark bath in a 300 euro/night room) the bathroom was very compact and the shower leaked badly (the hydro shower was very ineffective). Overall it was a really disappointing experience. It's one plus is that it is in a fantastic position, but I would recommend the Four Seasons for a better level of service and value for molto euros.

My and my wife stayed at the Gray for 1 night in May-04. The hotel is situated on a calm street just by the duomo.
I must say it was the coolest hotel I have ever stayed in. If you like top design, this is the place for you. We booked a standard room and we had a Phillipe Starck tub in our bedroom, flat-TV and everything was design in a minimalistic style.

Only reason why this is not a top grade (I honestly thing the 330 euro we paid was money well spend) is that the service was not 100%. It was adequate, but not what you can expect from a 5 star hotel.
For example there was a couple of times we found ourself waiting for the 2 receptionists to finish talking before helping us...
Nevertheless, if I can afford it, this is where I'm staying next time I'm in Milan.
