This hotel is situated in the centre of Milan in a side street, without much traffic. It is tastefully decorated and the rooms were quite spacious (especially the bathroom). The staff were cooperative and the breakfast buffet was OK.
The only drawback were the thin...More
Gran Duca is one of Milan’s hidden gems for its lovely rooms, exceptional quality and fantastic location. The staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast is superb (despite bariety) and I’m spoiled on how central it is to the city. I travel to Milan often...More

The hotel is located in the centre of Milan, a few steps from the Duomo and just behind the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana. It can also be easily reached by underground or by bus. We had a decent-size room with twin beds and a bathroom with a...More
If I was going to review for location alone, this is five star. Very well located in a quiet street. However, this hotel lacks so many things- Room don't get complete dark at night (light from outside), room decor is not nice (plastic chairs, really?)...More
Hotel is in a great location. Very close to Duomo and everything else really. We didn't catch the tube or tram at all during our stay. Walked everywhere.
From the airport we caught the express train to central then walked from there to the hotel....More
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the
view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

Since Malpensa airport is a considerable distance from the city, I suggest taking the Malpensa Express train to Cadorna station. The trains run frequently and it is easy to handle luggage on them. From Carodna Station, it is a short taxi ride to Hotel Gran Duca di York.
We had no difficulty finding tables, without reservations, in nearby restaurants on weekdays in June.
