        Historical Traveler Reviews Gran Duca di York Milan

        Nice but noisy


        We stayed for two nights. Staff very friendly and very helpful. The hotel is in a good position near the Duomo and is fair value. We had a room at the front on a supposedly quiet street. However, there was traffic noise until the early hours of the morning. Whether this is normal of because of traffic diversions I have no idea, but it is worth checking if noise is an issue. Other than this the hotel is worth considering.

        Perfect Location and Friendly Staff


        After landing in Milan without our luggage, we were pleasantly surprised by Gran Duca di York's amenities. Our moderately sized room was very clean with simple contemporary decor. The quiet double room paired with the very comfortable bed, made for a much needed good night's sleep. And we started off our day on the right foot with the complimentary breakfast spread which included fresh fruit, sliced prosciutto and salami, hard boiled eggs, cereals, sweet breads, juice and coffee .

        Also, the hotel was a short couple of blocks from the Duomo and the La Scala Opera House. But best of all, the hotel staff was so friendly and helpful. Since we were stranded without our bags, the staff called our Venice hotel for us without charge and even looked up train schedules on the internet for us - hours after we checked out.

        Nice stay


        Nice stay for two nights in May 2005.Refurbished room,facing side street,on 3rd floor,was very pleasant,and quiet at night (no place is quiet by day!).Staff recomended two good restaurants within 2 blocks.Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.Not luxurious,but what 3 star is? Convenient location to Duomo and Metro.

        Excellent value in superb location


        I have given up spending ridiculous sums at 4* establishments when this three-star with superb location (3 mins walk from the Duomo next to the Public Library) offers some very nice recently refurbished rooms for a fraction of the price. Very polite and helpful service. So-so breakfast but that is normal in 3* in Italy.

        Top location, comforts, and value


        We spent one night here during a recent Italy trip. Our room was spacious, clean, tastefully decorated (modern and stylish), and had a wonderful bath with tub. We had one of the rooms with a balcony, although the weather was too cool to actually use it. The breakfast was simple, but good. The location is top notch.



        After traveling long hours by plane, train, and bus, we arrived at the Gran Duca Di York with our reservation confirmation in hand and high expectations. Unfortunately, we were told that there was not a room for us. We had made the reservation two months in advance and had received an email confirmation for our room. We were sent back out onto the streets of Milan on our first night in Italy to search for a hotel with vacancy. The Gran Duca di York could not be bothered with helping us and even after taking down our information and copying our confirmation number, address, and phone number, we have never heard back from them with any explanation or apology. So please beware that your hotel reservation and confirmation may be meaningless.

        Great location and price


        Stayed here in mid-September. The hotel is your typical three star european hotel with small but clean room and small phone-booth shower stall. However, for the location within Milan you cannot beat the price. Very close to all of the tourist attractions and easy access to the Metro.

        Lovely, except for noise


        Spent one night here before flying out the next morning. Requested a superior double which cost about 140 Euros, I believe. Staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed a relaxing drink at the lobby bar. The Duomo is 5-10 minutes away. Room was great with it's own little terrace. Bath was good, also. Only complaint was that around 4 AM we could hear conversations from the room next door and couldn't go back to sleep.

        Don't Be Fooled


        Based on Frommer's and some other sources, I stayed here on my honeymoon. It is overrated. The room appeared clean and it is in a decent area, but that's all I can say for the hotel. The room was small and looked like it was last furnished in 1946. The sheets and bedspread were of a similar vintage. The breakfast is terrible, and there are no other food facilities. Perhaps we were just accustomed to the clean and better-priced hotels in Germany and Austria, but for 160 Euros per night, I expect more.

        Nice option in Milan near sights


        adequate room (more like very small suite, with main door to room and then door to bedroom part) with tiny balcony, good TV, nice bathroom, helpful staff and interesting old area

        I flew into the Milan Linate airport on the British Airways from Boston, connecting via Heathrow. Milan's Linate is a small airport close to the city center, but because of a pouring rain and the fact that I didn’t sleep on the plane, I decided to take a taxi rather than bus to my hotel, Gran Duca di York. There was no traffic and we were …

        After breakfast in the hotel, we left to wander around the Galleria Emanuelle shopping arcade, followed by a visit to La Scala Opera. Unfortunately we couldn't do the usual tour as there was a rehearsal for the ballet in progress.

        We still did the reduced tour and were able to spend some time watching the rehearsal through plastic windows …

        There is a flock of Shaun the Sheep statues all over London right now. Each statue has been decorated by an artist and sponsored to raise funds for a children's charity. The first one I spotted was across from Trafalgar Square. Each one has a name and the puns can be rather dreadful - Chelsea Pen-Shaun-Er, Sheep Shape & Bristol Fashion, Br-Ewe- …

        Our trip to Milano got a late start--not our fault. The high speed train, Frecciarossa, was delayed over an hour due to some political rumblings/rallies in Bologna.

        We made it just on time to our lunch visit with Vera, our very first teacher of Italian, ...
