Very friendly staff

This was a stop over en route to Paris. A charming place, quite genteel. Room was comfotable and surprisingly quiet for big city. Nice park nearby to walk in and a couple of reasonable restaurants within walking distance. Staff were very affable and helpful

We loved it

We just loved this hotel. We stayed one night, mostly to have a place to stay the night before we caught a plane back to the States. We got so much more! The hotel is perfectly located, just north of Milan's main park area,. It is a very pleasant walk , from the hotel, through the park, to Milan's main tourist attractions. At night, the hotel is close to a bunch of wonderful restaurant/ bars where you can have a great, inexpensive dinner. This part of town is not at all touristy, and you feel like one of the natives. The breakfast is really, really good with lots of delicious choices. The staff is amazing. Their English is really good, and we received full concierge service. The desk clerk laid out a full sightseeing plan for our day in Milan, and also planned everything we needed to get to the airport the next day. We cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The price was extremely competitive with what we paid elsewhere for a lot less!

Great location and comfortable hotel

We enjoyed our night here in the Lancaster. We made the mistake of walking to the hotel from the train though. Grab a taxi. The walks around the hotel are nice and the staff was helpful

Great location and good value

Overall a good experience. You can walk to the arch and park which is great and near their are plenty of place for food/drinks. Parking is scarce, but you can park down the street for only a few euro's depending on the time. M-F 8-6 you have to pay and can only park in Blue area's. You can buy your time cards at the front desk and then place them on the dash. The wifi is alittle funky. Each device needs its own code and if you + wife have one laptop and one phone that is 4 devices and the paid service only gets you 2. Then you have to enter the code every time you go on the internet, you cannot save the code and the code is very long and time consuming to enter.

Good location in Milan

My wife and I stayed there for three nights in May 2012. We walked each day through a beautiful park into the city. The hotel personnel were very nice and helpful. The place was very clean. The breakfasts were plentiful and good. It's in a fairly quiet residential area. We would definitely stay there again.

great hotel and service

the hotel looked new and clean. Shower worked great and the bed was huge! Breakfast was very nice, large for an European style but really, plenty. From fruit, yogurt, sweet and non-sweet breads, juices, Italian cakes, and made-to-order hot drinks (cappuccino, espresso, tea etc) The staff was very nice and cordial. The location is a bit confusing but it's near the Piazza della Repubblica and there are trams you can catch there. Although we did most of our visits by foot. You can walk through Parco Sempione to Castello Sforzesco and continue on to Duomo and the center of the town.

Near the arch (piazza Repubblica) there are several bars(cafe') where they do happy hour in the early evening so it gets really lively in the evening. The hotel is a few blocks away.

Great hotel off Corso Sempione

Very good value - as good a 3* hotel as I've stayed in. Spotlessly clean, well maintained room. Friendly and helpful staff.

The bars at the bottom of Corso Sempione are a great place for an evening aperitivo - lively and busy with tables outside to admire the view of the Arco della Pace.
