Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Visconti Palace Milan
What a luxury!!!
This was the nicest hotel that we stayed in during our trip. The decor was beautiful and the rooms were large and lovely. We took a cab from the train station to the hotel and we were met by several porters eager to take our bags to our room. The hotel has a stunning garden, and a full service bar off of the lobby. The breakfast was wonderful, plenty to choose from and a beautiful setting!
Swimming pool and fitness centre still not working.
Hotel was charachterless and have magnolia walls and ceilings everywhere, very boring. Service was mixed, some very helpful staff, some were rude and treated me with disdain. Rooms were small but clean and well stocked. Restaurant was generally good.
Overall very disappointing particularly regarding the swimming pool which they stated would be working. There are better hotels in Milan for the Price.

This hotel was excellent value for money. When booking the only "photos" available were artists drawings so I was a bit apprehensive of what I would find when I arrived. To my delight upon arrival we found that we had been upgraded to a suite and as we were a bit early to check in we were seated at the bar and received 2 free drinks! What service! The staff in the hotel couldn't have been more helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Milan.
A Slice of Italian Luxury
19 of us went to Milan on a hen weekend. We got a great deal on price so we were not expecting a luxurious hotel. How wrong we were! The hotel is immaculate, with lovely gardens. The rooms are beautifully done out with loads of little extras, such as full size shampoo, moisturiser and a kit bag with razor, toothbrush, cleanser etc - everything! The beds were turned down at night, leaving a little cake on the pillow. Attention to detail at all times. I think perhaps it was the staff in the hotel that were the biggest surprise. Nothing was too much trouble. You would expect a look of panic to appear on their faces when 19 of us turned up to their brand new hotel but we received a wonderful greeting and superb service throughout our stay. I'd certainly stay again, fab hotel, wonderful city and very happy memories.
This hotel was astounding value for money. Everything about it was luxury with nothing left to spare. Staff were extremely helpful, especially since we could speak no Italian! The restaurant was wonderful with a superb choice of breakfast. The room was very spacious with an immaculate en suite bathroom/shower. Very close to Doumo, this was without a doubt the best located hotel for central Milan. We would have no hesitation but to return to this hotel and recommend it to anyone who wishes luxury at a very reasonable price, within walking distance to everthing you would wish to see in Milan.
We had a great experience
Brand new great hotel. Pool and Spa facilities will not be in operation until some time June-July.
We got upgraded to a corner room for no additional charge and it was very roomy. Great sound isolation. Breakfast buffet is served in the beautiful
dinning room and selection was impressive.
We had a great experience.
Avoid this hotel!
This hotel's web information is very misleading. The indoor swimining pool is not in operation. I chose this hotel specificaly because of its claim to have a beautiful indoor pool. Upon arrivial I was told the pool was built, but not in operation. I find this to be fraudulent and deceptive. In addition the claimed restuarant is not yet in operation. All meals are served in a large, unattractive hall. The staff made absolutely no effort to remedy the situation I faced upon learning the true nature of this property. Then to make matters worse the heating, air conditioning, and fan system in the room did not function at all. The staff lied about this problem, and kept saying it would be corrected when they knew nothing could or would be done. Avoid this hotel at all cost.
Superb hotel all round, close to centre of Milan. The rooms were outstanding as was the whole of the hotel. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were so friendly and attentive. Pool or fifth floor restaurant not ready when we were there, which was a shame but this did not deter from the overall excellence of the hotel. I would definitely stay again.
Excellent top class hotel for an amazing price
Everything about the hotel was superb. The staff, facilities and the room were excellent. You were provided with luxury toiletries and even slippers. This is a chocolate on the pillow kind of place!
Breakfast was the best we have experienced from several trips to Italy.
We stayed here after it had not long opened, so some of the facilities (swimming pools, gym and gardens) were not yet available.
Just one thing lets it down, it is located on a busy main road, and our room overlooked this. The noise from the traffic was more than you would expect.
Has a good location for Milan. Just 2 minutes walk from the Lodi Metro station.
Would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

... cooked right in front of our eyes and the chef let us take a picture to prove it. Emma had a really good looking pasta. We sat on one of the benches and ate our meals before getting really yummy iced wine smoothies (our version of Italian wine) which we drunk whilst playing cards. Even the hundreds of mosquitos couldn't scare us away from sitting and enjoying the atmosphere, making the most of our last ...
... at a most inopportune moment. When we arrived in Como, even I needed a strong drink. Como was very busy with people out shopping. Lisa and Ruth found all the jewellery shops - we also frequented a few makeup and granita shops. We had a lovely afternoon wandering in the sun. We made it home for bourbon and Prosecco in the setting ...
After a long day of traveling we finally arrived in Milan. We had our first authentic Italian meal and walked all over Milan. The old part of town is quite amazing. It was an early night though since we hardly slept on the plane ride over. Off to Switzerland tomorrow ...
... on Bramante. Although best known for his wonderful architecture, he was also a gifted painter, and much of his work was brought together in this exhibition for the first time. Tomorrow should be Michael's turn to drool as their is a Raphael on exhibition in the Palazzo Marino, just by La Scala Theatre. There's just one just one painting, The Madonna of Esterhazy, but the queues to see it are very long indeed... Early start tomorrow ...
... an hour in a queue to pee helped too! They literally had a handful of portaloos for the whole stadium. Would never go down at home! Everyone was surprised when Eddie came out to rev the crowd up before the soccer with a solo acoustic of Porch – very cool. And even though the Italians lost the soccer game, the crowd quickly got over that when Pearl Jam came out and did another epic set. And Italians sure are passionate about their Pearl Jam. Everyone knew every single ...
