Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Very nice modern hotel
The room size was good and the rooms was very clean
The LOCATION is perfect in the middle of the Duomo 2 steps and you are there
الاوتيل ممتاز موقع راااااائع جدا
الفندق مودرن يعني الغرف ألوانها شوي غامقة
اللي يحب الكلاسيك راح يتضايق شوي
الريسبشن صغير ما فيه لوبي
لكن الموقع اكثر من ممتاز خطوتين و انتم في الدومو ، باب الاوتيل في باب لاريناشينتي على طول

This design hotel is appealing and well placed, the rooms are nice in design, however will need a refresh soon - ie a lot of damage and stains everywhere. We were travelling with a 7 year old child and got a room above the bar where on the first night a concert was planned; the window quality is bad, we felt like we were sleeping on the street.... and yes, there is a lot of activity on Piazza Duomo at night :-) .....
We did not get any answer to 2 mails prior to our arrival and when requesting to make a restaurant reservation we were told that there was no place whereas we called ourselves and got in without any problem....bad information on public transport got us into trouble returning to the airport....
Price/quality not ok for us !

A minimalist hotel with a beautiful contemporary aesthetic, fabulous art and a not-for-profit mission to help with water and other basic services in Mali. Spare luxury - cast concrete floors, inset lighting; a bathroom with brass floors and a rainfall shower. Within several hundred yards of the Duomo and La Scala and 4 blocks from the Linata express bus drop off. Room service options are good and the breakfast buffet is clearly a place to be in the media/fashion industries. I was in a room above the happening Straf Bar - great DJs and live music with crowds that spilled into the streets - and ended before 11 PM. Almost regret writing a review because I want a room to be available next time I'm in Milan!

We had a great modern and well thought room with a great view of the duomo from the balcony. Breakfasts were good and staff was nice. I'll go there again next time because of the great location mainly but I also loved the designs in the hall and rooms.

This magnificent hotel, in the center of Milano, is amazing. When you are in Milano for shopping or being in the city, Hotel Straf is THE spot to be. We will be back in August and look forward to another amazing stay. Roomservice is GREAT!

Room Tip: The suites at the top are amazing architecture!!

Hotel Straf has a perfect location, in a small street near the Duomo (cathedral), close to the metro station and the taxi station is only 3 minutes walking. There are many shops in the area, including the Rinascente department store.

I was impressed by the design, quite original, funky, and beautiful!
Excellent buffet breakfast.

The is also a nice bar (Straf bar), next door to the hotel (great in the evening or for quick lunch).
The only minor drawback was some noise from the street on saturday evening.

Straf hotel is a small and very pleasant hotel. Recommended.

Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

It was our first stop in Italy and after 20+ hours of traveling, we wanted somewhere central and somewhere we could be guaranteed a bed so we chose this hotel. The location is excellent: right in the heart of it all. Lots of places to eat nearby and of course the main attractions only a short walk away. Really liked being in the middle of it all, even at night, and having an easy access to the Duomo. The staff are all helpful and the breakfast spread was great. The room and bathroom are very spacious but are a bit too dark for our liking. We also were not a fan of the low bathroom vanity - it wasn't practical for us. The bed was comfortable and the shutters on the windows were handy in blocking out the lights outside and the noise from the hotel's bar downstairs. Having wifi included in the hotel rate is always a plus.
