I stayed for two nights during a shopping trip.
LOCATION - Unbeatable, right by the Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele and all the main shops.
ROOM - Very industrial design. The concept is 'povera arte'. Walls and floors are grey concrete as are the corridors. Rather an acquired taste but different! The room had everything necessary although I found it difficult to get the lighting in the room right. The view from the room was of the exterior of other rooms. It was quiet which was a plus point. Room price includes an adequate continental breakfast. My package included a one-way airport transfer in a good car with friendly professional driver...worth considering when you book.
STAFF - All very polite, friendly and helpful.
VALUE - Very good for the centre of Milan. Never felt overcharged at any point which is most refreshing in what is otherwise an expensive city.
BAR - The hotel bar is extremely busy in the evening with local, amiable young people. The drink price included a selection of simple items from a buffet which was constantly replenished. A glass of decent red wine and the food for 8 euros.Tuesday night they had live music.
Overall, if you are not needing a cosy style of hotel or a room with a view, but want location and a good bar on the doorstep, the Straf is definitely worth considering.
