Hotel Dei Cavalieri
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 …
Today we were lucky enough to take a tour with one of Trip Adviser's star tour guides for Mian, Giacomo.We started at the Duomo where he took us to the terraces to admire this beauty from above. Made completely from Marble, the Dukes of Milan donated a complete mountain to the building of the Duomo so that it could always be made and maintained in a common stone. We're pretty sure we saw the quary on the way to Milan yesterday. 400 years in the making it was ...
... Italian pizza for lunch whilst we waited for the platform to be displayed. Wendy continued her extreme diet - no solids. We boarded and sat opposite each other in quite comfortable seats for about an hour and a half as we both tried not to go to sleep in case we missed our station. John succeeded in staying awake. We alit at Genova station, were met by a man with a sign saying "Pearce" and were then transported in a Mercedes "S" to Monterosso. Our driver told us that he used to ...
... 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 ...
After a leisurely breakfast we caught a water taxi to the station,much quicker than the ferry, boarded our train and off we went.Arrived in Milan at 1,30 and were at our Hotel Sanpi by 2 pm,had a bit of a rest and went out for lunch and a look around.Found ourselves in the middle of the city where there are lots of old buildings and a statue of Leonardo DeVinci which is right near the beautiful old shopping plaza,pretty spectacular. While we were walking around there were police cars ...

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.
Walking distance to anything worth seeing in Milan. El Duomo, La Scala and the high shopping districts. Also convenient to the subway.
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
