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 …

... The return directions however began with streets that were still under construction, so we could not go that way. Conor decided to try his luck asking for directions at the gas station. One of the attendants who spoke some English had no clue where he was or how to help us with directions. The other attendant spoke no English and seemed to know. It was a real team effort - but the two of them managed to give us directions that worked!! On the ride home, we stayed roughly half-way for ...
Museum at Academia for a bit of culture- lots of painting of last supper that were rescued(?) from churches in town. Some really old 14c stuff and some more recent restored items. Amazing brushwork and huge alter pieces some with bible stories that were new to me. Spent arvo wandering lanes and canals. Pizza at same restaurant. ...
... Maybe further down south? As Kate predicted we didn't need a secondi. For mains I had what turned out to be a half lobster in shell with spaghetti and tomatoes, whilst Marianne had linguini with prawns, pochinni mushrooms and tomatoes. One to Marianne I think although I cant complain. Kate's famous zucchini chips were there too -masquerading as fryed vegetables. So now we know where you got the idea from ...
