Grand Hotel et de Milan

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Opened in 1863, this hotel is still among the top ones in the City, thanks to its superb location, near the Opera House and the Duomo, a nice job of classical updating and a friendly, capable staff. It was a great way to start my tour of Northern Italy. Its restaurant, Don Carlos, is superb. I had veal dishes at four different luxury hotel restaurants during my trip and the veal loin here topped them all.

I think this hotel was great before the Park Hyatts and Mandarin Orientals popped up throughout the city. The location is really the drawing factor here. It has an old-school feel which also is fun for Milan rather than the modern hotels mentioned above. With that, though, comes older style, typically small rooms. We had a pretty bad room located in an attic-type setting with a slanted roof. Not really a feeling of luxury. We were only there one night so it was fine, but for longer it was very tiny. We didn't have any drinks or food in the hotel, so I can't rate that! It was all ok for one night, but not sure I'd run to stay again.

One thing I've learnt is that once you've compared the facilities, the newness of the hotels and the size of the rooms, it all boils down to the personal touch provided and I can definitely say that the Grand Hotel et de Milan excels in this area. From the emails I received pre-arrival checking for details of my arrival as well as my personal needs (type of bed, pillow, etc) to the wonderful surprise of an upgrade to a junior suite followed by a bottle of champagne and a personal note from the manager (Mr Moreno who showed us to our room personally) congratulating us on our wedding anniversary, to the helpfulness of the concierge (in particular, Walter) who followed up for us with the airline on our lost luggage, staying at this hotel has been the best decision I made in Milan. This is aside from the fact that the hotel itself is in a beautiful building with a long history, located next to the metro and in the famous shopping district of Milan and a mere 10 minutes walk to the Duomo. Thank you for making our stay and our anniversary celebration so much more special! I would highly recommend this hotel!!

The hotel is definitely up to the standing it is claiming with its star categorization and price range. It offers everything one could expect from a place of this type. Perhaps a little dated in some areas, but it nevertheless remains very elegant. Could also add to the depth of its offer.witha swimming pool for instance, but again it's just to find something to say. A definite recommendation for me.

Stayed here twice this month.... 2 nights with Tauck tours and one night by ourselves.... It is a lovely hotel with excellent service. The location is right smack in the middle of the Fashion district in milan and the breakfast in the hotel is superb with really good coffee. the rooms while small is comfortable.... and the hotel is close by several very good restaurant s nearby including Salume and Don Carlos. Highly recomended even if the price of hotel is a bit high.

After 24 hours of travel from Melbourne to Milan, we were welcomed to the Grand Hotel with warmth, and checked in quickly. Our room was beautiful, elegant and super comfortable with a small balcony to see the sky and adjacent buildings. The furnishings were reminiscent of earlier times when beauty was held to be more important. The "Grand" is near the Duomo and other important galleries, museums and gardens. It is also in the middle of the best fashion that Milan has to offer. It was a very happy experience to be a guest there. As with all lovely experiences, the staff are a key element. At the "Grand" we were treated like old and treasured friends. We can't wait to return.

Very old historical building in Viale Manzoni in the heart of posh area of Monte Napoleon where all brands and events,the hotel is Classic in furniture ,food ,drinks,atmosphere and attentive service,rooms are big full of amenities,nice tiny old elevators. The hotel attract the American tourists.

We stayed at this hotel on 2 occasions in early September and mid September. Service is impeccable. The concierge gave wonderful suggestions. Front desk promptly noted our request for a quiet room specifically during Vogue's Fashion Night Out. Everyone from the bellhop to housekeeping were friendly and helpful. Restaurant team for both breakfast and dinner were attentive and simply amazing.

It's a lovely, and very confortable and beautiful hotel! A great localization, very kind and helpful employees. Delicious breakfast and the Don Carlos restaurant is also very good and tasty!! I really recommend it to everyone!

The hotel ia amazingly beautiful! Excellent location, umbelieveble attention with people, room, amenities,everything! The food is wonderful, even the normal restaurant but also Dom Carlos Restaurant, linked to the hotel. The employees cant do more to please you...since the guy who opens the front door, the reception, concierge and the waiters! Life is too short not to visit Gran Hotel et Milan!
