We chose the hotel for the location which is perfect for the center of Milano. A few steps from the Cathedral, the Galleria Victorio Emanuelle and La Scala. The hotel is Ultra modern in an old building. The rooms are ultra modern and artsy, but lack any practicality. The room was stifflingly hot and the Airconditioning did not seem to... More

You'll love his hotel if you like polished concrete floors, no art on the walls and a bathroom with both walls and floor made of metal. Unfortunately I didn't. This was the least cosy hotel I have ever stayed in. The bedroom felt more like a prison cell than a hotel room, with bare concrete floor and walls. The shower... More

The staff were friendly, and the hotel was reasonable and modern looking on the surface. We selected it due to other good reviews on TA. My room was just suffering a bit of wear-and-tear; scratches and scrapes on the doors, the lightbulbs (of which there were so many it got confusing) were flickering on and off and making disconcerting buzzing...

What a cool surprise. Great boutique hotel just steps from il Duomo -- location could not be better. Also just steps from the Metro, so you can get anywhere in Milan. Great decor, very industrial chic with polished cement floors, great bathroom fixture and an awesome large open shower. Loved this little gem

I got to know about this property from the SPG site!! I was pretty impressed with the location of this hotel from the get go. Everything is so closeby. Now when I checked in, the staff was so friendly and took care of all my needs and got me all the information that I needed about Milan.

Pros: The hotel is literally 10 steps from the Duomo. Everything is within walking distance. Modern design and very clean, both the rooms and the common areas. The staff are professional and very friendly. Cons: The room lights are complicated to manage. The breakfast is poor compared to the overall hotel quality.

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
