One of the best hotels I have ever visited anywhere. We had a junior sweet and it was amazingly beautiful. Exquisite rooms, extremely courteous staff, incredible food. Not a bad word to say about this hotel. A very strong recommendation!

Great place, with a luxury atmosphere, historical building in the center of Milano, large rooms, good bedding, some rooms may feel a little "old". Great breakfast, of course not cheap. Nice cosy bar with good coffee, cocktails, snacks.

Very attentive staff and wonderful service. The concierge even delivered cold medicine for my boyfriend from a nearby pharmacy. They offer complimentary rides to nearby sights in a Maserati and the hotel view was awesome. Highly recommend.

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst in Milan on business. The rooms are very luxurious (modern chic rather than traditional in style). Some nice touches such as a Nespresso machine with capsules and complimentary bottled water. I wish more hotels at this level did such things! The staff were all helpful (although some came across as rather aloof). There...

Conveniently located across the road from Centrale, this is an elegant hotel. Your check-in experience is complete after a member of staff takes you to your room to explain the amenities to you. I loved the lunches - which included a wonderful range of cheeses. The talking point highlight for me was the 'shuttle' to the Duomo - a ride...

This hotel is pure luxury. It is well appointed. Well staffed. Food is great and the location near the train station is quite central. We stayed in a "Signature suite" and it well worth every penny.

Staying in Stazione Centrale

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
