Comfortable stay at the Hotel Et De Milan
The room was very comfortable and the service excellent. The location is superb due to the fact that it is right around the corner from Montopoleone where the best shopping takes place. The concierge immediately takes care of everything when you check in and is at your disposal throughout the visit making appointments at the spa, hair salon etc.
The only downside of the hotel is that breakfast should be included in the price of the room as many other European hotels. Other than that, the visit was excellent and I would certainly stay there again.
thank you very much for the nice suggestions left at your way back home. Your appreciation for our Concierges encourage us to continue to mantain and improve our high standard of service.
We are deeply sorry if you did not find any rate inclusive of breakfast available for the requested period.
We look forward to welcoming you back at our property, and great you personally
We stayed for 5 nights. We had a beautiful room, very large with a great bathroom, and a view of the center court. I loved the location, but was a little disappointed with the staff. Although they were efficient, they were not overly friendly. Sometimes I felt as though I was staying in a Museum and didnt feel as "at home" as I like to feel. The hotel bar was very pretentious. All in all I do not think I would stay again, just because friendliness is so important to me, especially when I am traveling and unfamiliar with the culture and language. The front desk was not helpful when it came to sight seeing questions, had I been a celebrity I probably would have received better service!
Had a wonderful weekend at the Grand Hotel At De Milan in August. We received a free uprade, lovely quiet room. Bed was soooo comfortable and bathroom very good size. Excellent location, literally 500 yards from La Scala. If you want a buzzing city don't visit in August when virtually all Milanese are on vacation but we loved it. Access to all attractions was very easy, no queues and an empty metro system. Beware though a lot of the top designer shops were closed for the holidays.
What can I say? Having spent a week in a far from perfect hotel on Lake Como, to come to Milan and experience the warmth and service of the staff at the Grand Hotel was superb. This is a perfect hotel where the staff will look after your every need. If it weren't for a website called Tablet Hotels, I would have never known how great this hotel really was. I got a great rate as well!
Excellent Staff, polite and Helpfull in all matters. Reception desk great and outstanding. No another place in Milano, tells you the story as this place. Nice Luxury School.
Old School luxury
managed to blag a room in the Grand on a business trip last year - pure luxury.
The most comfortable bed i've ever slept in and impeccible service.
This is pure, old fashioned luxury and given the chance (and the pay rise) would stay there every time I'm in Milan.
We stayed Grand Hotel Et De Milan. I have to say it was OK hotel. Our TV was not in good condition, one of the two phone was broken, and room was very small. The bath water doesn't come out well. I really have to say it is OK hotel for the four star hotel. It is very small hotel, small lobby. And when we stayed we didn't see any other travelers staying this hotel. There were no guardman in the front door. Also, there was nobody to help with our bags when we check out. Parking cost is very high, and room also. It is not bad hotel, but it is not luxurious hotel at all.
Old-world class + great location
Old-style luxurious family-owned hotel with lots of charm. Fabulous period decor. The rooms are comfortable but a little faded. Excellent restaurants (superb breakfast buffet). Good gym.
Service is of the highest level and extremely smooth. Friendly concierges and doormen.
The location is hard to beat (comparable to Four Seasons): on the Via Manzoni and opposite the Via Montenapoleone.
The hotel is expensive (week-end rates are available), but this is no exception in Milan.
A charming and uniquely Italian experience, a world away from the chain hotels.
My second home in Milan
The Grand Hotel Et de Milan is a perfectly situated, small luxury hotel with a long tradition of hosting people from the opera world (Verdi, Caruso, etc.). Perhaps most importantly, the hotel has flawless service up to any standard and stunning, comfortable rooms with furniture I wished I could buy from them (I had a suite one day and a junior suite the other day, having been upgraded when I stayed there in late April '04). On the same street as La Scala, and close to the major shopping streets, it makes seeing Milan by foot easy. The hotel has an intimate and authentic Italian character. Easily one of the nicest hotels I stayed in during a recent trip to Italy. The staff were always smiling and courteous, always going the extra mile for me it seemed. The valet/doorman leapt to attention whenever he saw me. The bar manager made me feel special instead of lonely when I had a drink there alone. The fitness center, while small, is clean and attractive. Room service was never late, wake up calls were received on time, ironing was done within a half hour, and nothing I asked for was impossible, language was not a problem since everyone spoke English well (not true at all luxury hotels in Italy). An excellent, cozy place to get away.

... Then up the funicular to the mountain overlooking Como, not happy with view at that height we decide to walk up to the lighthouse. Snow covered following last weeks cold blast we make our way up - a long way - finally arriving at 'the lighthouse'. The view was spectacular, well the view as best it can be here with quite dense haze/smog. We could see the water but sadly the Swiss Alps, whilst could be seen, were blurry. (Switzerland is ...
... 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.
... It ended up being a winding road up the mountain curving around the entire thing. What we thought would take about 10 minutes, probably took a half an hour. However, we finally arrived at the castle, which was beautiful and had amazing views as well.
After spending time in the old city, we decided to go back to the lower city for dinner (we were very tired due to lack of sleep). We grabbed some pizza ...
... golden arches. That's right - like a true product of seeing marketing all my life, I saw the McDonald's M and knew immediately that I wanted some french fries. We did it. Josh McGirk - you called this one. I can't honestly remember the last time that I ate McDonalds in the states, but the smell and salty deliciousness of those french fries was exactly what I needed.
Just as Conor had written out directions for us to Milan that had worked, he also wrote down ...
... it properly. Today it is kept in a hermetically sealed room to protect it further. Giacomo also pointed out all the symbolism in the painting, all figures cast in light apart from Judas. The grouping of elements in threes to represent the holy trinity, even Jesus depicted in a triangular shape, and Judas and Jesus reaching for the same bread. Leonardo worked on the piece for 4 years, but set up him Milan home and vineyards just across the road.
