Travel Blogs from Milan
It's the last full day in Italy for us today, and the plan is to take the Frecciarossa from Rome to Milan, then hopefully get a little time after we arrive to get a flavor of the city which we saw from a distance when we entered Italy two weeks ago.
I know sit and pause to think back on Rome... Rome was just as I read before the trip …
We had a relatively quiet start to this morning as our walking tour did not start until 10.30. This gave us time to shower, pack, breakfast, vibes mums ( mum S was not answering) and Bethany. It is lovely to hear some news from home. We arrived punctually as that's how we roll and the guide did not turn up. A few others were there waiting as well. We gave up and decided to do it ourselves as we really only have a short time until the train leaves at 2 .05 pm. We went to ...
... it, so they recommended a cafe further along the lakeside. 20 minutes walk later, we were sitting there, drinking our coffees and cokes, and watching the swans and ducks on the lake. A short walk further to the next ferry stop - and the heavens opened again, only this time it was torrential. Once on the ferry we could barely see the shore!
Getting back to Como was stopped at a restaurant / gelaterie for a lovely lunch, and by 2:30 we were in the car ready to start the ...
... much to Oliver's delight.
We reached Como at about 5pm, and checked into our hotel. That left us time to walk down to the quay, have a drink at a cafe popular with the local sparrows, and wend our way to a delightful restaurant round the corner from the hotel. A short walk along the lakeside helped us to digest it all, before finishing with a bottle of wine watching the busy Saturday nightlife from our room's ...
... too, which we really appreciate.
Walked a few streets away from the hostel and found a restaurant which turned out to be a cracker (as Fred Dagg would say/sing). Lovely surroundings, genuine Italian food, generous servings, great service from a waiter who spoke good English and a most interesting 'doggy' box to take home, as the pizza was far too big to consume at once. And the coffee was unbelievably cheap - 3E for two cappuccinos! (H)

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dei Cavalieri Milan
Got off the metro and my bed was waiting for me!!
After a tiring journey to the hotel it was such a relief to get off the metro and the hotel to be in front of me. This hotel is a standard 4 star, however the room was bigger than average and the price was excellent £70 double room with breakfast. Another plus point is the location, really close the Duomo and also is walking distance to the grand canal(where all restaurants are). Overall a very pleasant stay.
Great hotel in a great Location
I have just returned from Milan today. 5 couples stopped in this hotel ,all rooms were excellent. Duomo was a 5 minutes walk, metro stop very close by. Make sure you go up onto the roof of the Duomo. A great little restaurant/Pizzeria (DOGANA on Via Dogana) was just this side of the Duomo, we went 3 times in 4 days.
Top tip, if you want to see Leonardo's last supper, book it on line well before you go, its only 6 euros. We ended up booking a site seeing tour with 'autostradale' which was pathetic but you got to see the last supper for 15 minutes. The price was 42 Euros.
Location, Location, Location
Walking distance to anything worth seeing in Milan. El Duomo, La Scala and the high shopping districts. Also convenient to the subway.
From the airport an easy $10 Malpensa Express ride plus a $10 cab ride.
My Italian host could not believe the location and I got a great rate on the internet. This was made up by the hotel with very expensive drinks at the bar, 6 Euro for a coke.
Hotel was clean. The elevators were a problem during the visit as was regulating the temp in the room. Breakfast was included in the rate and was simple but good served in a large dining area.
It was great to get away from the major chains and try something local. I did it based on the internet and was not disappointed.
I would stay at this hotel again. Expect European standards (smaller rooms and beds etc) and you will not be disappointed.
Standard Room - bit small & Hot
Stayed here for one night on the 18th March 2004. Hotel was having renovation work downstairs. The room and bathroom were small but decorated ok. The room was very hot and when we asked about air conditioning the guy at reception fiddled about on his computer telling us he was adjusting the temperature. Woke up in early hours unable to breathe, no full window to open, phoned reception to be told by honest staff member that the air conditioning was not switched on until end of April...we thought this ridiculous considering the temperature. Restaurant/bar area small this could have been due to the renovation work. Meal at dinner was well presented although expensive enough,staff friendly. Not a bad hotel probably better when renovation work is complete but do ask about the air conditioning considering the high temperatures you can get in Milan. 164 Euros for a promotion standard room.
Friendly place to stay.
I was staying in hotel by the Central Staion in Milan and the area looked very dodgy, I decided to mouve to the Hotel Dei Cavalieri right next to the Cathedral and the shopping area. It was FAB!! I loved my room! For sure it was an Excellent choice.
Perfect hotel for Milan City center.....
The Hotel dei Cavalieri was really my best choice for my travel in north Italy. The hotel is really in the heart of the city (as all the depliants of the hotel shows as its motto). Was an excellent location for my shopping and for my turist visit. I do not have taste the restaurant but the menu seems really good. I spend also beautifull nights by the many clubs in the area (walking distance). If you need to go in Milan, I really suggest this choice.
Lovely modern central hotel
The entrance and the lobby are small, but rooms are very modern, comfortable and well equipped. The room at the rearer would be better as the hotel is at the corner of busy streets. Convenient central location. I was impressed by the efficiency and helpfulness of friendly staff. The restaurant was excellent too. Definitely a good place to stay for business or leisure
