Straf is a Design Hotel in the heart of Milano. I stayed there for 2 nights for business reasons. Its big advantage is the location in Piazza Duomo, next to the main shopping street Corso Vittorio Emanuele, close to via Montenapoleone with the luxury boutiques and in a neighborhood full of restaurants and cafes. Rooms are a bit dark which is interesting for design lovers but not everyone will like it. However, they are pretty spacious for single or double occupancy and there is a big working desk. Beds are comfortable and queen size. WiFi is free as it is in most Design Hotels which is a big plus (I really can't understand why international branded hotels insist on internet charges). The bathroom bench is a bit uncomfortable. It is very short with a long cylinder washbasin on the left side. You need to stoop everytime you want to reach a towel or your toothbruch. I was bending on my knees in order to wear my contact lenses! But unique design is not always comfortable or practical. Straf has also a popular bar with nice cocktails and guest DJs. Breakfast was just fine with a variety of choices although it could offer more for a room rate close to 200 euro. I enjoyed the prosciouto which is difficult to find in breakfast buffets outside Italia. Staff was helful overall and guys in reception allowed a late check out at no extra charge despite me being late in my late check out time! Lastly there is also a charity display in the lobby with T-Shirts and jewels. Your purchase or donation helps a project of water supply in Mali. I would certainly choose Straf if I visit Milano again.
