Historical Traveler Reviews NH Grand Hotel Verdi Milan
Amazing rooms and friendly staff
I just returned from a weekend in Milan where I stayed at the Grand Hotel Verdi and it was a wonderful place to stay!! The staff members were very friendly and were very accomodating to my needs. Originally, when I booked my ticket, it was for a king-sized bed, but when I checked in, I received 2 double beds, which wasn't really good for me as I was staying there alone...a quick call to the reception and they sent a bellman to my room to transfer me to a room with a king-sized bed. In the process, they kindly upgraded me to an executive suite! The rooms were VERY spacious and clean!
The breakfast buffet (which came with the room) was pretty good...standard meats and breads, fresh fruits, cereal, etc.
The only reason why I did not give this hotel an "Excellent" rating was that it was a little far from the Duomo and shopping area...which appears to be the main attractions of this city.
If I ever return to Milan, I will definitely stay at this hotel again! The price was very reasonable (possibly for the time I went) with a nightly price of 99 EUR.
Great location, not the friendliest staff
We recently had the pleasure of spending 2 weeks in Northern Italy. We had read many reviews of local hotels and the Grand Verdi seemed to be a good value. Good location, nice rooms and a friendly staff. I am here to confirm everything but the friendly staff (with the exception of one member at the front desk and a very nice waiter in the restaurant that were very helpful). It started with us struggling to get our bags in the door...the staff watched but didn't help! Next while checking in, not so much as a smile from the gentleman ( I use the term loosely) behind the desk and again...no offer to help with the bags. Lastly, on the 2 occasions where I needed help with directions somewhere, they seemed annoyed. All of the other hotels where we stayed had extremely friendly staff memebers. This one surprised us. On the positive side, it is a nice hotel with clean rooms in a good location as mentioned above. If it is a bargain next time vs. the other hotels, like it was this time, we would go back.
Great hotel, great service!
Stayed for 3 nights over the Easter Weekend - we were not disappointed!
Almost equidistant from the 3 Metro stops that the hotel advises you to come in from, we found Gioia to be slightly nearer - just walk down the road heading towards the city centre, and it is about 300 yards straight down. Garibaldi and Repubblica are slightly further.
Location isn't that bad, although it is slightly out of the way - Via Brera is 10 minutes away on foot, with its cluster of shops, bars, trattoria & restaurants and is a pretty and welcoming part of Milan. From there, the Sforzesca Castle and into the Duomo are walkable, although the excellent Metro system allows Milan to be easily navigable (I recommend buying a 24 or 48 hour pass for €3 & €5 respectively). A supermarket is round the corner of Melchiorre Gioia, and just next to that, an English pub selling Tennents & Guinness!
The hotel has a delightfully bright and sunny feel to it, with warm autumn colours in the restaurant and reception. Our room was a delight - not only was the room big, but our huge king-size bed was set in a contemporary, clean minimalist setting. The bathroom was particularly excellent, although it seemed that the a/c wasn't working that well - blowing heat only which wasn't needed during a warm Spring weekend!
Breakfast was superb - as good as any we had in our week long stay in Italy. Staff on front desk were extremely helpful, with nothing too much, and all of course fluent in English. These were some of the best hotel staff I have ever dealt with, and helped to make our stay even more enjoyable.
Shop around for a cheap deal - you won't believe what value for money you get here which you will need if you eat and drink in Milan. Some of the prices are scandalous; to help you get the most for your Euros, would recommend a great little restaurant called Topkapi in Brera which did amazing food, really friendly service, and all at a reasonable price.
A good place to stay - reasonable prices, good location and staff who were out of this world. Rooms were very large (unusual in Milan). Only slight concern was that it is on a fairly busy road, but there was very little noise in the room. Would suggest that anyone staying in Milan stays here.
Excellent hotel and very nice staff
This is an excellent hotel, nice spacious room with walk-in-closet, sofa, bureau, sitting area and design bathroom. Also there is a good lighting plan, with much elements that can be switched off/on with two boxes next to each side of the bed. The staff at the reception speaks English very well and is very friendly and assist full. The breakfast buffet is first-class and has much more to offer than the average 4 star hotel. It is about a 5-10 minute walk to the nearest metro station. There is a well stocked supermarket close to the hotel (from the hotel go to the right, turn right at the first street, continue this street until you see the supermarket at your left.) Although there is some traffic noise in the room, we can recommend this hotel as one of the best 4 stars hotels in Milan.
On there own website this hotel has offers for a stay of two nights and more. We had the two night stay offer with a double room inclusive of breakfast, welcome drink, 10% discount in the restaurant and two 48 hour tickets for public transport.
Great place to stay, First Class!
After looking at several other hotels in Milan, I chose The Verdi because it appeared to be a nice hotel based upon the reviews and pictures. I can tell you that it did not disappoint! The hotel is beautiful, rooms are huge and clean, had free built in LAN high speed internet service for my laptop and even supplies the LAN cable. Location is ok, but within one minute walking distance is a hardware store, travel agency, computer store, sandwich shop, and numerous restaurants great for the business road warrior. The hotels resaurant All Opera is excellent and the complimentary breakfast is awesome! I just happened to hit Milan when the Euro was the strongest in history, so the free breakfast was very welcome.
The guests here are all upper crust, many wear minks (still popular here), and I felt like I was staying at the Four Seasons. The staff is very helpful and friendly, all speak and understand English, and bend over backwards to make sure you enjoy your stay.
The only faults I can think of are minor; they do not tell you how much calls are, it's a small fortune to take a taxi from Malapenta Airport ($100 bucks), and there is no health club facility. The only alternative if you want to work out is a guest membership at a local club for $40 per day. I decided not to opt for the health club, thought it should be much cheaper than that.
Overall, if you're looking for first class accommodations in Milan, I highly recommend the Grand Hotel Verdi.
Excellent room,bath!! Great Breakfast. Courteous personal!!!
My husband and I were in Italy for four weeks, traveling on our own. After some very small bathrooms and/or bedrooms at some very high rated Hotels, we were rewarded with the GRAND HOTEL VERDI IN MILAN, ITALY.
Not bad but off the beaten track
Nice place tio stay .. fab bathrooms good breakfat good restaurant.. its alittle bit 80's but in a nice way. One of the best beds ever (including Starwood Heavenly Bed) we got a good rate. walk in closests.. which you might need after a few hours around the golden triangle. If you need to go to Milan for what the city is Famous for ( cos it aint gonna win any prizes for design or beauty) ie Gucci Prada Dolce & Gabbana its a little far out on a horrid road... but hey you,ll have chance to break in your new Manolo's
This was the best hotel stay we had in Italy. The hotel service, food, and attention could not have been better. The rooms were large and the bathrooms tiled and roomy. You have a ten minute walk to the subway or bus. From there you can connect to anyplace. It is three subway stops away fror the tourist attractions. The subway is excellent transportation. Would absolutely stay there again.
Three nights at the opera .....
My husband and I stayed here for three nights earlier in the year.
Lovely reception area in bright shades of red and lots of authentic opera programmes etc decorating the walls. Huge and I mean huge bedroom plus walk in wardrobe area and lovely marbled bathroom. Again decorated in an operatic vein but very comfortable indeed.
Buffet breakfast had a huge range including a lot of low fat options.
We walked everywhere - very convenient location and very near to main rail station and metro.

It was really cool. Had lots of organic food stalls and lots of places to sit. Our host had encouraged us to eat Italian food and drink Italian wine so for the 5th night in the row we did.

We arrive back at MXP just in time to greet our family. We find that their T-Mobile telephone plan allows them to use their phone like a GPS. We load the luggage into the VW as best we can and proceed to our excellent Airbnb accommodation for night in the nearby village of Passirana.

Anyway, enough of the moans, it's all part of the adventure! Joy was delighted with, and exhausted by, our visit to the Brera Museum, which not only has all her favourites in, but was also hosting a ...

We got our ten club tickets and joined the queue that was already a mile long, and waited. And waited, and waited! Fortunately we met a really lovely English couple in the stadium, so chatting to them and with the Italy world cup soccer match being broadcast on the screens inside, the time actually passed relatively quickly.
