TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Gonzaga Milan
Gonzaga is only a couple of hundred metres from the central railway station and is surrounded by eateries, cafe's, miscellaneous (cheap) shops and some fashion shops. The rooms are clean and spacious and overall it looks well maintained. A lot of street noise drifts up from below but closing the windows quietens things a lot. Staff are nice and helpful.

The masterpiece has had a rough time of it. Rather than traditional fresco where paint is applied to wet plaster, Leonardo applied oil paint mixed with tempera to a stone wall that he sealed with pitch. The result was gorgeous, but it didn't wear well; it began to flake as early as 1517. In 1652, Christ's feet were chopped off when the Dominicans cut a door through the wall. For a ...
... I walk out the door, and down to another hostel. No luck there either. I refuse to be overcharged, but it looks like I don't have a choice--unless i want to do some urban camping! Finally, after 5 hostels, I figure I'd better just take it, and look for a something cheaper tomorrow. One thing that IS nice about being back to a big city is the variety of cheap dining options. I head out to look for something to eat... grabbing a doner sandwich at a talkative ...
