We have had a great day today. I love Milan. It is so clean, busy but not overly crowded, the people are really friendly, the food is exceptional value, the transport is so easy, the churches and sites of note are so well kept and restored. Its fabulous.

Saach and I have spent the day hopping on and off metros, trams and buses and showing …

Milan 38 degrees



This morning we went to the Saturday clothes markets. There were streets and streets lined
with clothes, food, shoes, jewelry and tableware and not to mention,
people. It was shoulder to

From there, we did just a little more shopping, …

... the Duomo, glorious in the afternoon sun. The girls loved the chocolate stand that featured it's truffled seated on the toe of a life size chocolate stiletto :) I tried the Paznerotti, delicious! Off we went shopping for the afternoon. The shops are endless, I hunted blue loafers while the Gab and the kids kept their eyes out for the Disney store they'd heard all about. We strolled and enjoyed for a few hours before going into one of the beautiful old pasticceria ...

After a less than pleasant night, John had a late breakfast and we checked out. Apart from the food episode it was a great place to stay and we would recommend the Grand Imperiale Hotel as a good place to base yourself to see Lake Como (but don't eat at Cafe Bellini - a couple of doors down!) Anyway about 11am we were picked up by our next driver who took us in a Mercedes minibus to Milan Railway station. Boy was the station busy! We arrived with a good hour to spare and John had ...

... be, Piola. After walking in circles for an hour trying to find our hostel, we realized the street signs were etched into the sides of the buildings (they are VERY hard to make out). Truly enlightening moment! We spent lunch at a small cafe called Caffeteria di via Picini by our hostel. Their version of iced coffee is the most amazing thing I've ever tasted! It is espresso mixed with slushy, sugary ice. We visited the absolutely breathtaking Duomo cathedral (built in the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ariston Hotel Milan

    Good value in great location

    from

    Hotel Ariston doesn't offer much in the way of luxury, but it's a solid *** in the heart of Milan. Pros: GREAT location, clean rooms, comfortable beds, helpful & pleasant staff, cheap (we paid EUR70/night). Cons: lots of street noise (we're used to it, but folks not used to sleeping with city sounds may find it distracting); breakfast is not "Italian" and is kind of pedestrian, but there was a lot of it; I didn't find the hotel to be any more eco-friendly than any other hotel, so no extra points here. Would consider staying here again on next visit to Milano.

    Excellent value for money

    from

    I can only think the hotel has had a make-over since some of these reviews were written. The rooms were excellent, very clean, the bathroom and the bedroom were spotless, the bathroom was very modern and looked new. Once we'd worked out how to use the heating/air con the room can be whatever temperature you wanted.

    For a 3-star hotel it is very good value for money probably one of the best 3-star hotels I've stayed in (& I've travelled a lot).

    I would also add that the staff are very helpful and knowledgable, the breakfast is plentiful and tasty (& you can sit for ages!), and its in a good location. Definately book.

    No tea / coffee facility in room

    from

    This hotel was clean but quite small, certainly not luxurious but staff very friendly and food very good. Mini Bar in room but no tea/coffee making facilities in room. Short walk or tram ride from centre. Would stay again.

    Great food!

    from

    A small but very friendly hotel. Its what you would expect from a 3 star. Set in a quiet location but only 5 minutes walk from the centre which comes alives a night. The piano bar is a great way to round off the day. We are going back again just for the food!

    Excellent staff help and atentions

    from

    I booked it by expedia and found it over my expectations. Really good.

    Not as bad as these reviews make out!

    from

    I booked this hotel without checking trip advisor - when I did I was disappointed to discover the hotel was not as great as the hotel web-site makes out. So when I arrived at the hotel I was pleasantly surprised - yes it wasn't the height of luxury, but it was clean, very central and the buffet breakfast was on par with other small European hotels. The hotel advertises itself as being 'environmentally friendly' but we didn't see much evidence of this. If this is the main reason for choosing this hotel you will be disappointed, otherwise if you want somewhere that is well priced and central, it's a good choice.

    Not as adverstised

    from

    Hotel Ariston is simply a below-average hotel in good location. It's ecologically friendly/organic advertisements are more marketing than reality. They may have air purifiers, but lobby doors and many room window are open and smoking and pets are allowed. Their breakfast selection was vast but the only clearly organic products were a few pre-packaged cakes and possibly some fresh fruit. The sincere, helpful and friendly front desk and waitstaff would have made up for these shortcomings if the rooms would have actually been comfortable. Unfortunately, the beds had thin futon mattresses and even thinner pillows. This along with the high temperate and dry air made sleeping very uncomfortable.

    Find another hotel!

    from

    Don't believe their website, its not what you are going to get. The air vents has got visable white dust stuck to it, the wooden floor with stains, bathroom cramped and old, taps/ fixtures and shower head stuck with scum. The shower so small that you couldn't turn. The sides of the closet doors doesn't match, ie. one is higher and one is lower. I wouldn't expect that to be called a european 3 star, I mean especially from how they present themselves on their site, I think its a total scam.
