Close to the Duomo in very center of Milano. Nice and friendly staff, they speak also English, French. Specific design of the interior of the hotel with dark colours. Good Wifi network, good cofee and breakfast. Some improvements in bathroom ergonomy are recommended, but overall experience OK.

If you are near to Duomo and you feel like having a drink this place can be a good option. The drinks are ok, the buffet for the aperitivo can definitely be improved but overall it's a nice place to stop by. Recommend in spring/summer time.

Hotel and staff were good, rooms are quite small as are the bathrooms. Wi-Fi is so bad it's not worth using and connecting on wired didn't improve anything, I hope they took action to fix this now. Lively area with a nice bar in the lobby. Location is great for tourism and shopping.

Great room, great location, polite, helpful staff, but if you plan to sleep in your room before 10 pm, you may need to rethink that! The bar downstairs plays LOUD music until 10 pm (or so) and in our room it was loud enough to keep us from sleeping. It made for a tough morning with a early flight and...

We were really impressed with our stay at the Straf. The staff was helpful and the hotel had a very unique and happening vibe. The rooms were definitely nice, but on the small side, and the dark colors won't work for everyone. Also, while the staff was helpful and very considerate, we found that the staff at other hotels on...

Straf Hotel is in a perfect location, has wonderful staff, and excellent accommodations. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Milan. Additionally, the hotel was very affordable, and as a Starwood associated property, is part of a great rewards program.

Staying in Centro Storico

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.
