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.

... Surrounded by the intricate cake like laciness of marble sculpture we walked across the rooftops between the turrets. We took many more photos. After realising that time was now getting short we then rushed down to the stairs, caught the metro back the 4 stops to the Hotel Maddison and walked to 300m to the train station - that's why we booked accommodation close to the station! We made the train with 20 mins to spare so we bought a snack boarded and we were on our way to ...
We had decided to take the Ferry up to another village on the lakeside, but actually arrived at the Quay in time for an earlier ferry. So we ended up catching the 9:10 ferry to Urio. As we climbed on board, the rain started, and as we cast off, that rain changed to horizontal, so we abandoned to top deck to go downstairs.
Luckily when we reached Urio the rain let up for a while. The only cafe near the dockside turned out to be a restaurant, despite having "cafe" written ...

As we made our way further and further north, we soon lost count of the number of miles a stationary traffic going in the other direction.
We had planned a stop in Modena for lunch, but unable to easily find somewhere nice, we finally ended up in a ...

We decided since the night was early to take a rest before we go out during the night. After about 1 hour of laying down I started to feel nauseous. And thats when it began.....throwing up and ...
