Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days and had a great experience. Most hotels in Europe have small rooms. Although the room was not large, the space was adequately distributed. The restroom was large for European standards. One strange thing is that the restroom does not have a door.

The Hotel is in the heart of Milan. Duomo and castle are at walking distance. Metro, Bus and Tram are all available nearby. As it is in the center, Super markets are also very close. The staff is exceptionally good. The breakfast is king size and superb.

Overpriced place with no positive emotions. Only stuff trying to be friendly and helpful.
More than half rooms looking into tiny patio. Problem with ventilation in bathroom, smallest TV I ever seen, Spartan style furniture. Check attached photos.

It has a very good location, few minutes walk to the Duomo, nice shopes, big life. The breakfast was like a min. 4 stars hotel. The staff was always for the guests disposable, speak fluent English, and smile+amike+smile!

Before going back to my home country, Thailand, we went back to Milan from our wonderful trip around Tuscany winery areas. My daughters found this lovely hotel from Trip Advisors. It is situated on the street just connected to the touristic center and in between Duomo and Sforza

Is there free parking? Please describe. Which rooms have the best wifi reception?
Hi we do not offer free parking has we do not have a garage. there are two parking solutions nearby, both paid. Please refer to our website for complete info on parking solutions. We offer an extensive enterprise-grade wifi coverage throughout the Hotel, this is the reason why we charge €9,00 as a flat rate for the entire stay. However, if a choice has to be made, double rooms facing street side have antennas places nearby As you probably may know, direct bookings are always cheaper and more flexible. warmest regards marco ferreira front-desk
