Booked this hotel due to location , 2 minutes walk to the Duomo di Milano and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. Small modern trendy hotel , very small area for breakfast and bar area, but functional with polite helpful friendly staff . Nice clean room great for an overnight stay in the city center .

Exceptional location, very different design. Can't say I like an idea of black room, black toilet and rusted sink, but it just me. Stuff is extremely nice and helpful. Very good breakfast. Location is right on a Duomo square

Brilliantly positioned hotel adjacent to the Duomo, the Victoria Emmanuel and La Scala. Easy access to the Metro to Centrale. Rooms are relatively spacious and well appointed in a minimalist fashion. The bar attached to the hotel has a good aperativo.

Great artistic hotel, in central location. Challenge to find it as it is on a pedestrian street and parking is very expensive if you drive your own car. Otherwise, perfect location, great bar. Breakfast area is super small and almost no space to eat and food runs out quickly, but still overall very good short stay.

Absolutely loved my overnight stay in the very chic STRAF hotel right in the heart of Milano! From the moment I entered I knew I had made the absolute perfect choice! The staff were friendly, the hotel room was a total WOW factor, bar right downstairs. ... Waking to the Duoma Piazzaand all that you could ever ask for all right at the doorstep! Thank you a Perfect Paradise from which to enjoy.

I stayed here earlier this year and as single females, we were looking forward to our stay in Milan. Hotel looked young and modern BUT Unfortunately our first night there our hotel room got broken into and some of our stuff stolen including leather jackets and an iPad. It was a nightmare!! There wasn't a manager on duty that night and though there was a camera outside our hotel room in the hallway, they couldn't check the video footage due to some Italian law. After being accused of "do you know anyone if Milan" from hotel management the next morning, it was clear this was an inside job. Locks in the room are cheap and anyone can walk into the hotel and up to any floor via stairs or elevator as you don't need to swipe your hotel key to go to any floor. The police system is a joke and the hotel not accommodating after almost $5k or merchandise was stolen. They finally put us in their sister hotel after we continued to make a scene in the hotel lobby but refused to credit our stay. If you stay here, don't have the staff walk you to your room and put all valuable items in their 4"X4" safe as it only fits the size of your passport comfortably, they only insure what can fit in the safe. And if your stuff gets stolen, don't expect for the hotels insurance to pay for a dime. Being a 4 star establishment means nothing, if you can avoid this hotel all together do!! It's not worth it the great location or modern exterior.

I stayed here for a 2 night stay in Milan as a shopping trip with my sister. A lovely design hotel, tastefully decorated and ample space in the room. We were kindly upgraded with a massage chair in the room and after a day of shopping in Milan it's much needed. The location of the hotel is one of the best features, right outside the department store Rinascente and facing the side of the Duomo. Couldn't really get any closer. The Bar at the hotel is lovely although incredibly busy in the evening. Would recommended the hotel and staying here for great access to Milan shopping streets.

The ambience, decoration and fittings of this hotel were only surpassed by the friendliness, helpfulness and general niceness of the staff. Great stay, seconds from il Duomo in a high-design hotel. Fantastic!

Great little hotel in a very convenient location if you are a shopper. Some of the staff were great, but at times a little cold to deal with. Rooms where smaller than expected and the air-conditioning in the rooms are not the best

Amazing hotel! Excellent quality/price ratio! you are in the Duomo area, just 30 meters away!! :) i recommend Strafhotel for anyone visiting Milano for business or leisure, it is in the beating heart of the city!
