Historical Traveler Reviews ADI Doria Grand Hotel Milan
I booked the hotel via Hotel.com from 6-9 November 2003. To my horror on arrival at the hotel reception near midnight, i was told i had no room despite them acknowledging my prior booking. The FIRST THING i was told was that i would need to stay elsewhere !!!! After much protest only then they agreed for me to stay there from the following day onwards and for the night i would need to put up in another hotel.
I think the above is totally unacceptable .
We stayed at the Doria Grand for 2 nights in early November 2003. For a reasonable price we had a very large room on the 10th floor that was very tastefully appointed. The hotel is very convenient for the train station - the main reason why we chose it - but we would stay there again without hesitation. Some of the front desk staff could use some "charming up" but that was a very monit drawback. the breakfast was excellent. The driver they arranged to take us to Malpensa was very nice - and for Milan - quite reasonable. all in all, a great choice.
I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The room was spacious and clean, and the breakfast was one of the best free hotel breakfasts I've experienced. I could feel they are doing their best to serve the customers. I booked the room through expedia.com where the hotel was rated as three star. But the hotel was actually four star and I totally agree with this rating.
Its such a nice and elegant hotel, they have got everything, you named them. Small Fridge which you can buy fizzy/ cold drinks from the supermarket nearby, about 3 mins walk to the nearest Restaurant , it only cost 5 euros for the tomato & basil pasta. Also there's a Chinese Restaurant nearby if you order a set dinner for 2, it only cost around 22 euros from starter to main course. In the hotel, they served English Breakfast everyday, scamble egg, bacon, sausages, cereal, fresh juice, tea, coffee, fruits, crossants. If I go back to Italy in the future, I'll definately choose this hotel.
This hotel was excellent. The room was fantastic, clean sheets and towels every day, spacious, and spotlessly clean. There was also a fridge in the room, which was well stocked with drinks,nuts and chocolate, and also gave you the facility to supply and keep cool your own drinks. It was very hot when we were there (Aug '03) and the air conditioning was excellent. The breakfasts were superb with lots of variety, fresh fruit, yoghurts, every kind of croissant imaginable, bacon, eggs, rolls, cheese, cold meats absolutely everything you could think of. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was also only about a 5 minute walk from Central Station and 2 minutes from the nearest metro. We would highly recommend the Doria Grand.
Nice and elegant
Great hotel: all the confort and quite atmosphere. Without the crowds. Nice and elegant room.The night room service could be better.

Awoke to a beautiful morning in Milan. The hotel had a banquet breakfast and a couple of cappuccinos later, I was off to beat the crowds and headed to Milan's Metro. Just a few stops later I walked up the stairs directly into The Duomo piazza. Words can not describe the magnificence of what was in front of me. For a short while I had the place to …
... was outrageous, sooooo many trucks and of course everything travelling very quickly. It was most tiring for John as the driver. The closer we got to Milan the worse it got, anyway, we survived. Luckily the road basically bypasses Milan and we were soon in Como.
Well a shock we got! The lake is pretty but Como is a huge suburb of Milan really. In fact most of the lake has housing surrounding it, albeit rather flash housing :-). Arrived at ...
... to reach there.
Well from the outside of city there is a breathtaking view of the upper town but once you are in it I woudn't say the same. Still there is plenty to see wandering around the streets and lots of lovely churches to explore. But it's definitely not the best medieval town in Italy.
... It ended up being a winding road up the mountain curving around the entire thing. What we thought would take about 10 minutes, probably took a half an hour. However, we finally arrived at the castle, which was beautiful and had amazing views as well.
After spending time in the old city, we decided to go back to the lower city for dinner (we were very tired due to lack of sleep). We grabbed some pizza ...
... on Bramante. Although best known for his wonderful architecture, he was also a gifted painter, and much of his work was brought together in this exhibition for the first time. Tomorrow should be Michael's turn to drool as their is a Raphael on exhibition in the Palazzo Marino, just by La Scala Theatre. There's just one just one painting, The Madonna of Esterhazy, but the queues to see it are very long indeed... Early start tomorrow ...
