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

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 now sit and pause to think back on Rome... Rome was just as I read before the trip: …
... 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.
... buses to get to our hostel. After about an hour that included bus rides and lots of stairs, we arrived at the hostel, where we dropped off our stuff and left to explore the city.
We first went to try to figure out the busses and trains (Abby wanted to go to Pisa the next day) in the lower city. However, we were at a loss and gave up on that idea. We headed to the Citta Alta, which is the upper medieval city ...
... the street led us to a round-about which led us to more uncertainty that led us to more uncertainty and another round-about. After 30 minutes or so, I stopped and told Elsie, "if I could find a taxi to drive us back to Milan, I would". But, we didn't even see any taxi's. We stopped and tried to re-group! The day was getting later and the daylight was getting darker. I was at a loss! Elsie always depended on me for using good judgement and I failed! We just stopped along ...
