“Straf Hotel Milano”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Straf is a very nice and modern hotel. Location is perfect, right next to the Duomo. We loved the boutique design and atmosphere. Staff is very friendly and welcoming and breakfast is excellent. Two issues that made our stay less than perfect : First, the beds were uncomfortable for us since mattresses are extremely hard. Second, due to ecological awareness bathroom toiletries come in huge refillable bottles, and bed linens / towels are changed only upon specific request to reception or housekeeping. While I fully agree with enviornment preservation measures I think that the common practice in most hotels requesting to put a note on the pillow for bed linen change, or put towels in a certain place in order to be changed, is sufficient. A guest should not be bothered contacting hotel staff for this purpose.

Very nice, clean, modern and perfectly located hotel next to the Duomo. Cool style and nice staff. Can recommend this hotel very much.

Only drawback at the moment (june1014) is the heavy construction going on in the building next door. Be prepared that the work starts at 6:30am (no construction on weekends) and involves hammering. Earplugs are favorable but wont solve it completly.

Dont know how long the construction is going to take so ask the hotel for information before booking

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your comment and feed back, ufortunately construction next door is Beyond our control and we are complaining constantly also to the council, since we have not been informed of the hassle properly and especially for the welfare of our guests.
Luckily we are nearly done a very soon this should be over, at least for the most annoying part.
Thank you for your understanding and do not hesitate to contact me should you require further explanation.
Regards

Stayed for three nights on business. Room was good, in good condition, comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and hotel staff very helpful. Provided excellent recommendations for restaurants.
Position is unbeatable . Only gripe is struggled to work out how to switch off bathroom lights - the switch concealed behind a panel . Would stay again

Room Tip: ask for inner courtyard rooms as street rooms might be noisy

Stayed here for three nights on business. Hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful and arranged cars to get me to various places around the city for business meetings etc. Superb location yards from main square/La Scala etc. (TIP: Go out of hotel, cross the road into big department store "La Rinascente". There is a lift hidden directly on the right as you go in which takes you direct up to 7th floor where there are three bars/restaurants with al fresco seating and where you can get meals/drinks/snacks at very reasonable rates with fantastic views over the Cathedral and square!) Hotel interior very chic. We certainly hope to return for an opera weekend at La Scala in future.

Room Tip: Some building work going on at building next door. Our room was first floor at front on left as you...

Right in the heart of Milam , Hotel Straf is literally a few steps away from the Duomo, and that's a huge benefit as most of the main sights are walking distance or a short Metro hop away.
Don't be put off by the exterior, which is more than dingy - the hotel is much better inside.
Free wifi is a great benefit, and the breakfast is very good - continental of the better kind, with a good selection. The staff are happy to help and give good recommendations for local restaurants.
The décor won't be to everyone's taste - very much of the 'industrial chic' type, and rooms painted in black - but at least it's different from a boring chain hotel. Most of the basics were good - good shower, blackout blinds, comfy bed, a safe for valuables. A few niggles from a practical point of view - the room needs more storage - there is a hanging wardrobe but no shelf or drawer space, so my clothes spent the weekend on display on top of the bedside unit, and why there's a massage chair taking up space I really don't know! I'd recommend though and would return if back in Milan.

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

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 !
