Historical Traveler Reviews De La Ville Hotel Milan
Peaceful rest in the City Center
Perfectly located a quick stroll from the Duomo and main shopping streets of the city, the Hotel de la Ville provides attentive service and perfectly maintained rooms. Each room has extensively sound and lightproofed windows and walls for a great night of rest for jetlagged visitors. Although small, our room was nicely decorated, spotless and at the hall end as I requested. Staff were helpful with arranging reservations and services and this was the only hotel during our month's stay in Italy that could make a good espresso coffee at breakfast (suprising!). Our only disappointment was that the rooftop pool was closed during our stay, but it looked lovely.
Location Is Best Feature
The hotel is in a great location, very close to the Duomo, restaurants, shopping. Our accommodations were fine--nicely adorned, clean rooms, but of average size. The service and food at the hotel was mediocre at best. Just a little more attention to these areas would make the hotel 'top-notch'.
I just stayed at the Hotel de la Ville and I have mixed feelings about it . The location is perfect and the hotel is beautiful ,charming and very elegant with courteous and professional staff . The room was very charming too with nice linen and italian great furniture . Howver we were disappointed by the very average breakfast with poor choice ,no fruits (!) and bad croissants and bread . Other disappoint for the old unconforatble mattress I slept ; it is amazing that such great hotel does not do a little more to improve breakfast and buy new mattresses .Would I come back ? I do not know .
What a gem! Just yards away from the Duomo and central Milan, this hotel makes the trip a pleasure. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. rates are reasonable. Location fabulous. Taxi drivers know where it is - which is often not the case with other hotels.
The staff was friendly and helpful. They offered to purchase train tickets for us, etc. There is an excellent travel agency steps away, as well as an international bookstore. The bar/lounge area offers free Internet, great coffee and drinks, and English newspapers.
This is a hotel to return to many times.
Luxury and Convenience in one place
We stayed at the Hotel de la Ville on our last few trips to Milan. I have been recommending it ever since. It is clsoe to the Duomo, the Galleria, Rinascente, Il Palazzo Reale and La Scala and several outstanding restaurants. The staff is friendly, courteous and helpful.
The rooms are very attractively appointed - there are even no smoking rooms available. One of our rooms its own terrace which overlooked the top of the Galleria. The bathrooms are very modern with great water pressure-perfect for a long hot shower or bath at the end of a day of sightseeing, shopping or conferences. The restaurant is very good although we only ate there once because there are so many wonderful restaurants in Milan..
We moved from the awful Milan Marriott here and spent 2 wonderful nights at this hotel. The location is great, breakfast is nice, the rooms are beautiful, and the rooftop pool is gorgeous. Definitely stay here!
A superb hotel in a great location
Stayed here, for 3 nights from 28 December, after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. Room brightly decorated and extremely clean - great touch with chocolates left in your room at night. All staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble - needed assistance with car hire, directions etc. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Milan - a great location, near to the Duomo, La Scala & shopping areas.
Great location right near the Dumo. Beautifully appointed rooms and fabulous service. A great way to see the city.
Nice hotel and super convenient
We only stayed in Milan for one night, but are very glad we made the choice to stay at the Hotel de la Ville. Rooms are nicely done with clean, spacious bathrooms. Staff was helpful in making restaurant and transportation arrangements. Above all, the location is superb - right between the Duomo and all the great shopping streets. Would definitely stay here again on a future Milan trip.
This is one of my facourite hotels in Milan because of the central location. All rooms are comfortable with luxurious bathrooms. There is also a roof top pool and a spa, as well as good room services.

... and met by Fabio who was most helpful. We are back from the lake but up very high so have great views down to the lake and across to the snow capped mountains.
Began the morning by walking along the waterfront to Cernobbio (suburb)and checked out many a glamorous villa high on the hill overlooking the Lake. Called in to a local trattoria which clearly feeds all the local builders so they were far from interested in us being in ...

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.
... at a restaurant in town and headed back to the hostel. Although we were in a 6 person room, it was only the two of us. However, it was very cold so we piled on the blankets and went to sleep.
The next day we decided to take a bus from Bergamo to Lovere, a small town in a valley in the Alps on Lake Iseo. The hour bus ride was very beautiful since we were traveling in the Alps. The town was very ...

Our last night in Italia was spent at the Teatro alla Scala seeing the ballet, "Romeo e Giulietta".
We were seated with the gods, but at least front row which meant we could stay seated, unlike those behind us who had to stand. It was fabulous to see and experience. What a great way to say "arrivederci Italia".

Our last day we headed out to Milan to spend the day with some old friends of Franci's - we wondered round the old city, visited the Duomo, ate amazing food and numerous caffes. After Franci's dislike of Milan I wasn't expecting ...
