Dear S0par, thank you for your wonderful words! You are right, our design hotel is always a surprise!

Spent the Easter in Milan, stayed at Straf right in the center, against the recommendations from Milanese acquintances who would have preferred e.g. the Brera district. For me the location was perfect, a few steps away from all tourist attractions, and with the Duomo metro station literally just around the corner, it offered easy access to the whole city. The...

Absolutely love this design hotel! Location in the heart of the shopping district. The Straf bar is a real hotspot where you can enjoy aperitiovos and cocktails. I prefer to book a room that is not on te streetside.

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.
