Hotel Vittoria
Ranked #205 of 431 Hotels in Milan
Reviewed 24 July 2017

I stayed in Hotel Vittoria for one night. Stepping into the hotel is like stepping back in time. The décor is so over the top it is laughable. Our room was red and gold everything: bedspread and matching curtains, wallpaper and carpet. The room was also tiny, and I can imagine it would get particularly frustrating if you were there for more than one night. The quilt on the bed was also made of a slippy material and in the shape of the bed, which wasn't really great for sleeping under.

Another problem with the room was the vent in the bathroom. It is obviously shared between two rooms as I could hear a full rendition of the person using the bathroom next to me when I was in the shower. It also meant that the noise of our neighbours coming back and using the bathroom came into our room and woke us up.

We decided to use the hotel bar in the evening, after seeing it advertised in the lift as having cocktails and live music. Again, absolutely over the top gross décor, with every space covered with fake flowers and magazines. There wasn't any live music, we were the only ones in the bar and the staff member managing reception had to run down after us to serve us at the bar. They also only had 3 cold beers and so when we tried to buy a fourth we were told it was warm. The bar also had so many items from breakfast on it that it had obviously not been used as a bar in a long time.

The breakfast itself was average. As vegans there were a few options available, but we were ignored by staff (potentially because we were a young couple) whereas everyone else seemed to have been offered tea and coffee. The fruit had also almost ran out by the time we arrived at breakfast, which was 9.30am and breakfast was meant to run until 10.30am.

A few good points on the hotel are it's location - it is a 20 minute walk from Duomo and is on the route for line 73 to Linate Airport - and the reception staff. I found the reception staff to be most obliging and pleasant.

Overall, Hotel Vittoria is a good hotel if you want somewhere to crash for a night before you head to the airport, but I'm not sure a longer stay would be tolerable.

Room Tip: Rooms are tiny and noisy so maybe book a bigger one if you can

Extremely friendly staff, free parking and excellent service. Would definitely stay here again, perfect location for a city break if you don't mind a bit of a walk into the city centre to burn off all that Italian food. This hotel is also located near some fantastic restaurants (Giacoma Fish Restaurant - a must), and laid out a lovely spread for breakfast. Highly recommend.

Our room was like staying in a Louis XIV broom cupboard. Small and dark and way overstuffed with over the top furniture - we ended up having to put a chair and table in the bathroom to make room to move around. And that is without the light-up padded bed head, fold up bed disguised in gilt and red padded leather, marble topped bedside tables, heavy swagged curtains, fitted bedcovers (to match curtains) and overmantel mirrors. Even the wardrobe lights up inside when you open it. It was like sleeping in a museum. The decorator obviously has a Versailles fixation and every surface in the breakfast room is loaded with hideous ormulu furniture, bijouterie, fake flowers, piles of magazines and lamps to the extent that you cannot actually put anything down without having to move things. Even the garden is crammed with stuff. As a result, the atmosphere is incredibly stuffy, formal and uncomfortable. Children certainly would not feel comfortable staying here.

The receptionist on duty when we arrived was possibly one of the rudest I have ever encountered. He started to check us in then answered the telephone without so much as an "excuse me" and proceeded to ignore us completely for the next five minutes - we stood there, hot, tired and sweaty while he finished the call. And not an apology in sight afterwards. The staff just ignore you.

My wife and I were booking a short break in Milan and for some reason, the hotel booking was made for a single room for one person (rather than a double for two people). We were informed that we would have to pay extra (which we did) however for the first night we would have to sleep in the single room as no other rooms were apparently available.

We made the booking via Bookings.com and the hotel stated on the page that the rooms were sound proof. When we were moved to the double room the following day, we quickly found out that the rooms were far from sound proof as we were subjected to a live performance of the guest in the next room going to the toilet (bathrooms share a vent apparently).

After we complained, the receptionist apologised and informed us that all of the double rooms were like this and that the only room available which didn't have this problem was the single room. So we went back to the single room for our second night.

It wasn't until our last night that hotel management offered to "upgrade" our room which we declined because we were tired of packing and unpacking and felt that this offer should have been made sooner if anything.

We were made to pay extra for the double room however were in the single room for the entire stay and hotel management refused to refund us the money that we paid extra for the double room.

The staff were generally friendly and helpful and the interior was nice however I would not recommend this hotel due to its management and if you would rather not be subjected to a live acoustic performance of people going to the toilet, I would recommend staying elsewhere or at least not opting for the double room.

Room Tip: Avoid the double room!

Dear Client,

We would like to thank you for letting us know your experience and for giving the opportunity to have you here with us.
We always put the client first and we are very sorry that you did not fully enjoyed your stay.

Regarding what happend, the reservation made on Booking.com was for a Single Classic room. When you requested a room for 2 persons, we were fully booked; so we offered you a bigger single room adaptable for 2 persons. We asked you to pay an extra for the second person (not for the room). When we had a chance the next day we offered you a free upgrade to a classic double room and than the 3rd day a free upgrade to a Superior Deluxe Double Room.

We can ensure you that we have very high standards for our rooms (as requested by the law).

I hope there will be a new opportunity for you to be our guest and, this time, you wont be disappointed.

Best Regards

Gabriele Perla

Hotel Vittoria is located just outside the city center. It takes a 20 minutes walk to get to the Duomo. The hotel interior is baroque and gives a beautiful atmosphere. The rooms are pretty small. The service is good and the personell very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel and would come back next time.
