“Excellent location, nice hotel”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 via mobile

The hotel is just behind the Duomo and in the corner of Galeria Vittorio Emanuele II. The room is nice and so is the bathroom. You must request to change your towels daily if you need them changed,otherwise they will not be changed. They don't provide vanity kit, so if you don't want to use the big shampoo and cream they provide you must take yours. Pick a room in the back side of the hotel, since they have this bar in the ground floor which is very noisy. The breakfast is good although I really didn't like the tables, they are short and very close to each other. Service is good.

We stayed at the Hotel Straf last twice this Oct 2013. The hotel is has modern amenities but is a very noisy one . We were given a room above the hotel bar and music lounge which made resting and sleeping very difficult.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room away or far from the music lounge

Things I liked:
location is near the duomo.
30 meters from the under ground station
near a lot of cafes and fast food
friendly staff
clean
good cold buffet

Things I didn't like:
the room seems to be still under construction (design is not good)
water pressure is weak. you cant take a proper shower.
No king size bed. queen size only which is too small for two.
room is not safe (sharp edges).
No enough power outlets for charging phones plus the location of it is not ideal.

Perfect location within metres of Duomo and the Corso Vittorio Emanuelo. Rooms quite, clean and arty presentation. We were had a room with couch which providing necessary space if travelling with more than 1 bag each.

Staff very helpful and friendly. Excellent range for continental breakfast. Espresso good.

There is a lack of comfortable sitting in the room.

We are returning for another night this trip and would recommended to others.

If you want to promote yourself as a stylish design hotel, you should not forget service should be stylish too. At the reception desk we were not informed about breakfast until we asked for it ourselves. Our room was not made up after our first night even after we asked for this at the reception desk. But hey, you can never get closer to the Duomo, fabulous location!

Straff is an good hotel. Prices are quite good (suite). Hotel needs to be refurbished, but this is taken care of. Good breakfast, friendly staff. The best location to visit the city. Nice bar.
Bath a little slow with wather. Bathtub too big for the amount of water. Suite has two balconies.
From the balcony with a little effort view on duomo.
