This 19th century residence hotel is located in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Milan, yet just far enough away from the crowds to relax.
It is an ideal place to stay if you are looking to shop in the fashion district – specifically Monte Napoleone – admire the famous Duomo or enjoy a night out at La Scala Opera. The decor is fairly inconsistent from room to room. The hotel was recently renovated, but to be honest I preferred the hotel’s original facade. The hotel bar is great. The staff were very obliging and especially helpful in finding restaurants nearby.
