      What a Wonderful Hotel -- best of my trip to Italy

      from

      The Location:

      This great hotel is just a 4 minute walk from the Gambara Metro station on the red line which is the central line to the Duomo and other major attractions which reduced the need to frequently tranfer to other lines. I'm a petite young woman and even with my big rolling suitcase, I was able to easily walk to the hotel late at night from the station and felt completely safe. This was so easy that I didn't take a cab when I left Milan, choosing instead to walk back to the Metro and catch my connecting train to Florence from the Centrale Stazione.

      There's a cafe and a few boutiques across from the hotel that I looked at from my window, and a grocery store down the street. A few storefronts away, there's a seafood ristorante that served great panna cotta for dessert, never got the chance to try dinner. A ten minute walk down the street brings you to a long block with cafes, bars, trattorias, and gelato shops. It was very easy to hop on the red line everyday to get to the major areas of Milan. Buy a 48 hour pass for 5.50 Euro for unlimited use of the the metro, bus, and street cars.

      The Room:

      Two twin beds in a large, well-appointed room with two big windows that opened. Even though we were on the second floor, the triple glazed windows blocked out any street noise and we had no trouble sleeping in. There was a separate sitting area with a small couch, table with two chairs, and a large, very clean modern bathroom in marble. There was even a walk-in closet that was bigger than than the bathroom in our hotel room in Florence -- I loved not having our clothes and open suitcases strewn about and cluttering up the room. The room and hotel looked nicer than the pictures on the website.

      Hotel Service:

      The staff was great -- professional, warm, helpful, and courteous. One night, we had trouble finding an open restaurant for dinner past midnight on a Tuesday. When we returned to the hotel, room service was over and the kitchen had just closed but the bartender (who looked very tired at the end of his shift at 1 am...) offered to bring food to our room if we ordered right away. We were grateful for the offer and we weren't expecting much in the way of food but the seafood linguine and veal in white wine were quite tasty and we couldn't believe the low price -- 22.50 Euro total for room service. Breakfast was also great -- good quality prosciutto and rolls, croissants filled with crema, marmalade, and chocolate, a hot buffet of eggs and bacon, fruit juices and a ceramic carafe of hot coffee brought to your table. This was the only hotel I stayed at in Italy where I could eat the hotel breakfast. The concierge was very helpful, spoke excellent English and gave us the only map we needed in Milan.

      This is a great hotel with easy access to the main shopping and tourist areas. While it might be an 8 min metro ride away from the Duomo center, use the the euro you save for shopping in the Brera district and you won't regret it. Thanks so much to the hotel -- we had a wonderful stay.

      Good Hotel, Not 4 Star

      from

      Stayed for a long weekend, got a rate of 99 Euros a night for a double room, which I think is good for Milan. Service good but hotel is not a 4 star despite being rated as such. Rooms are on the small side, freshly decorated, breakfast was adequate but have had better in some 2 star hotels. Price for room service meal (pasta) 8 Euros incl. service was fair. Location is 5 mins from nearest metro and directly on bus and tram line.

      The Rubens is Simply the Best

      from

      The Antares Hotel Rubens is an excellent example of a first class 4 star hotel in Milan. I stayed there for a weekend whilst visiting Milan for a football match involving the pride of Milan AC Football Club.

      We booked directly with the hotel using their own online booking facility and were able to secure a very competitive rate, indeed we were guaranteed their best available internet rate if we booked online.

      Our room was on the third floor and was spacious and well maintained. We had ample toiletries and were supplied with a number of gadgets including a shoe horn, slippers, bathrobe and all manner of sewing kits, shoeshines etc. The decor in the room is a bit garish but is nevertheless well kept with no signs of wear and tear.

      A wi-fi internet service is provided and there is also a 24 hour internet point in the hotel lounge (you pay for cards at reception, starting from 6 euro for half an hour if I remember correctly)

      The breakfast room is the hotel Rubens main selling point as it is located on the 5th floor in a kind of glass tower which combined with the plethora of breakfast items available makes you feel a little bit like Augustus Gloop in Charlie and the chocolate factory.

      Room service is excellent and the TV menu we ordered was very nice and superb value for money - we had fettucine ai boscialo i.e. fresh pasta with meats of the forest sauce I think!

      The location is ideal for quick access to both the San Siro football stadium and Milan's Duomo i.e. the historical centre due to the close proximity (200 metres) of the Metro stop Gambara which is only 6 stops or 15 minutes from Milan Cathedral known locally as the Duomo.

      A great weekend break

      from

      Well situated, just near Gambara metro stop on the red line, west of the City, and a short walk to De Angeli with many great shops/boutiques, the Rubens offered a great weekend break in November.

      A metro or 24 tram will take you into Duomo Square. Hotel very pleasant - good rooms, helpful staff, breakfast vg. Well appointed rooms and bathrooms with hair dryer, good powerful shower, loo and bidet.

      ... takes us over the road to place to educate us in the Italian way of ordering a drink at dinner time and getting a feed off the bar from the beautiful finger food they have kindly put out for you while you eat. Calamari, olives, breads, pastas and much more. It is amazing that this array of food is put out for anyone who is drinking. While being polite with Jenn and Don as the dinner the girls have prepared is waiting for us, we head home to enjoy a night of good food and ...

      Now where are all my party people?! In the city of Milan, Italy, the night does not begin
      until about 1 am. Back in Canada if someone is awake later than
      midnight, it is likely they are either in bed watching a movie with a
      bag of chips or bowl of ice cream (all you ladies, you know what i am
      talking about. We have alllll been there so please save the trouble
      of denying it!), or selling drugs in dark ...

      Well, our summer holiday is well and truly over and we are making our way North for a month of some major cities (and some smaller ones) before heading to the snow. we departed Siena after a lovely week and made our way about 4 hours north to Milan, the fashion capital of Italy, and arguably the world. Satnav did me no favours and directed me down a 1 way pedestrian mall and by the time I realised I had to reverse 100m down a busy walkway, trying not to run over annoyed looking ...

      ... people in at a time for a maximum of 15 minutes. The amazing thing about this artwork is that during the second world war the entire building was destroyed in a bombing, except for the one wall with the painting on. They have now rebuilt around it and created a high tech temperature controlled room to keep it safe from decay.

      ... this looks to be the area of Milan to visit, the Piazza is home to the Duomo Cathedral and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele which houses the Designer Stores (Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton etc), a short(ish) walk from there is the Castle etc... We had a good roam around before walking back to PV for our delayed train journey to Pavia (ok thats another similarity to Tom's Commuter train!)
