Hotel Romana Residence

Late last night I realised it was a four hour run to Bellagio. Sadly that meant not visiting Luzern again, or spending very much time in Lugano. Driving down through the Lepontine Alps the view to the peaks were buried under cloud - but what a vista - lush green hills and a dark grey skies left a picture of a winter Switzerland in my mind for the …
... The massive granite cannon balls used when enemies laid siege were pilled up in the moat, massive things, and you can see the damage the inflicted on the fortifications - but at 6m think and in a cylindrical shape most cannon balls just glanced off the walls. Max was in his element when we got the armory museum, old guns, Knight armor, every scary medieval weapon you could think of, it was gold to him.
We had lunch in a Milan version of the DJs food hall, ...
After a less than pleasant night, John had a late breakfast and we checked out. Apart from the food episode it was a great place to stay and we would recommend the Grand Imperiale Hotel as a good place to base yourself to see Lake Como (but don't eat at Cafe Bellini - a couple of doors down!) Anyway about 11am we were picked up by our next driver who took us in a Mercedes minibus to Milan Railway station. Boy was the station busy! We arrived with a good hour to spare and John had ...
We had a wonderful flight with Delta! Kelly and I had our own row and were served dinner, snacks, breakfast & even some cheap vino while spending the hours watching free movies on our personal TVs and snoozing with complimentary eye pillows and ear plugs. Our flight touched down at 7:45am, 6 hours past EST. The trip from Malpensa airport into Milan was not quite as smooth. We guessed our way onto the Malpensa Express and green line metro - somehow we ended up in the area we ...

After paying twice as much for hostel accommodation in Zurich, monogrammed bathrobes and such friendly staff were a treat!

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Romana Residence Milan
Il personale di quest'hotel è riuscito nella difficile impresa di combinare una gestione impeccabile e professionale con un servizio cordiale e tagliato su misura per ogni singolo cliente. Le operazioni di "check in" e "check out" sono state molto veloci e la camera (avevamo prenotato una suite) era spaziosa ed elegante e aveva i soffitti alti. Nonostante sia situato su una strada di grande traffico, a circa 10 minuti dal Duomo, l'hotel è molto tranquillo; inoltre, è vicino all'efficiente metropolitana milanese. La colazione inclusa nel prezzo è fenomenale. L'unico problema è il fatto che non sia disponibile la connessione Internet. Il personale ci ha detto che l'hotel ha avuto qualche problema con il provider, persino il Business Center era chiuso. Ovviamente ci ho creduto, ma questo era un inconveniente non da poco, se volete andare ad alloggiare al Romana Residence controllate prima che le cose siano state sistemate. A parte questo, siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti e torneremmo volentieri in quest'hotel.
Good but bad soundproof
Very good hotel and useful staff. Breakfast is good but we had a better one at the UNO MEDITERRANNEO, few minutes south. Rooms is big, much bigger than you will have in Europe in general. UNO's rooms are very european... which means so small!
I would not hesitate to take ROMANO another time and the rate was so cheap through Expedia: 100$US all included (taxes and breakfast)... of course it was low season.
Romana Residence in Milan provided the perfect balance between location, affordability, and room for my family of 4. This small hotel is in the heart of the El Duomo area which is perfect for taking in the great cathedrals, museums, and shopping of Milan. The suite is roomy enough for 4 who need space with a bedroom, bedroom/kitchenette, and 2 baths!
Really professional hotel
This hotel manages the unusual feat of being smoothly and professionally run yet retaining a personal and friendly touch. Checkin and checkout were utlra smooth and the room (we had booked a suite) was spacious and elegant with high ceilings. It is situated on a busy street about 10 minutes walk from the Duomo but the hotel itself is quiet; it is also close to Milan's efficient subway. There is a great breakfast included in the price.
One disappointment was the lack of Internet. According to the staff, their provider had let them down and not even the Business Center was open. I believed them but it was a major incovenience and prospective guests should double check ahead of time. That apart, it was a very satisfying stay and we would do it again.
We spent a 3 night weekend at the Romana Residence and it the location was really good. During the days we walked everywhere. The Hotel itself was fine we booked a junior suite it was good to have a fridge and cooker that you could make a tea or coffee. The room was clean but dated. The weather was unusually warm for the time of year and our bedroom was very hot as the air con was turned off this did make it uncomfortable. However there was no noise which was great. The breakfast was poor if you were not into cheese and cold meat there was only cold boiled eggs!
Great stay at Romana Residence
We had wonderful experience at this hotel!
The check in was very quick and upon arrival, we were offered juice and cookies.
The room itself had a four post bed and had a separate sitting area. It was certainly bigger than I expected for such price.
The location was great, as it was within 10 minutes walk to the Duoma. I would certainly recommend staying here.
Breakfast was great!
The hotel is very centrally located, you can reach the main attractions by foot.
