I had the chance to stay at the 'straf' 3 times recently, and always enjoyed it very much. I love the style of the hotel, very 'design' and with an admirable search for the detail.
I love its position, close to the Duomo and easily convenient both by subway (2 lines) and other means of transportation.also, in a fantastic area if you like both art and shopping.
I love its staff: extremely professional, young and full of enthusiasm.when I stay there I ask the reception about swimming pool, locations etc. and they are always answering with precision and a nice smile on their face.
I love its breakfast. which is varied and satisfies all...
I love the wonderful necklaces made in Mali and sold for charity. wonderful idea, really!
when I go to Milano, I would never stay somewhere else!
thanks to all...and see you next time!

When traveling for leisure I do my best to match the Hotel with the overall feel of the area while keeping commute to a minimum. Hotel Straf was a great choice for Milan. The hotel's location is perfect for touring Highlights the city has to offer and the sculptural feel of the hotel echoed the vibrancy of Milan.
The Location is perfect and the boutique hotel atmosphere makes the stay feel private.

We stayed one night at the Hotel Straf during the Easter weekend and had a great time.

The location of this hotel is perfect: close to the main tourist attractions, and close to the shopping district.... Rooms are comfortable in a modern and sparse kind of way, and the bathroom is very special. I can understand if the design of the hotel isn't everyone's cup of tea (minimal, concrete, copper, industrial tones,..) but we liked it, esp. for a city trip.

Certainly pass by the hotel bar! We discovered that they offer complementary canapes after 5pm, a very nice gesture. Take a seat on the window ledge (not to worry, there are cushions), it's a perfect spot for people watching.

One other thing about this hotel, service: very friendly and helpful.

I just spent 1 night there but staff was very friendly and efficient. Room service and housekeeping were great and quick. Girls at reception were hepful and very kind. Superior Room Decoration was original but I had no view. Not a big issue as I was on business trip and needed something quiet. Location is great.

After reading reviews of hotels near el Duomo cathedral I picked the Straf and wasn't disappointed. Its only 20metres to the square where the magnificent cathedral is situated.
No restaurant in the hotel, but there's many to choose from only metres from the front door. Very friendly staff and a real boutique feel to the rooms/reception area.
Struggled a bit with the hi-tech room lock & light switches were hard to identify, but only a minor inconvenience. Great breakfast.

Stayed here for two nights in room 510 on the 5th floor. On Friday night the bar is very happening and some noise/music can be heard, but nothing too ridiculous. We were upgraded to one of the aromatherapy rooms with the massage chair, with a white bathroom set and copper coloured shower and walls - no bathtub in these rooms. The bed was large enough and there is a small TV in the corner.

We received good service from the front desk staff although I wouldn't necessarily recommend their choice for dinner (Il Coriandolo as we found the food and service there not to match the prices). Also, the breakfast room is a bit small as mentioned in several reviews and not easy for the staff to keep the tables clean and turned around quickly.

However, overall given the location, interesting design and if you are able to get a good rate at this hotel I would recommend Straf for a weekend break in Milan.

it has been a proficent example to do not making mistakes again and pay much more attention
on details.

I deeply understand about the disappointment for a wrong restaurant choise, probably it did not
meet your expectation, but for sure we will try to carefully check with our guests about restaurants feed back.
