Travel Blogs from Milan
After leaving Como we decided that we will stay in Milan for a night before leaving italy and head into France. We had already basically done one day in Milan while we were looking for books before Como so we figured one night should be plenty. We had been told that Milan wasn't necessary to do because it is just a city but after weeks in strictly …
I thought breakfast was being given at 7.30 so I got up at 7 (somewhat reluctantly you understand) but nothing happened at 7.30 at all. Don't know if the message got a bit mixed up in the "translation" or not. Bottom line is I left at 8 with a glass of water in me to last until the first village after 3 hours walking. Noticed a mosquito having a go at my leg this morning. They are meant to be a nuisance amongst the ...
... town and big screens projecting news about the shows. Charlene wowed the crowd with the Kohls Collection and I was rocking the "House of Levi's ". We actually saw a Levi's store and saw my same jeans for 102 Euros. Who knew I was such a fashionista? We had a nice Milanese dinner and ready for Lake Cuomo tomorrow. Favorite food: Osso buco and saffron risotto (specialties of ...
... by bus to pick up the x-ray disc. This was surprisingly easy. There seem to be no counters beyond the front entrance to the hospital, so one just wanders around and grabs anyone with an ID badge and gabble about Mio Madre and her broken arm and wave the paperwork. Eventually somebody went and got somebody who went and got somebody else and they disappeared for a while and bought the disc. An interesting experience.
... it. It took quite a while to calm her down. We walked around the Duomo, Lit a candle, and had tea outside with Mums new shawl to ward off the drafts. We had Pizza for tea which probably wasn't a great choice but the options are fairly limited

Historical Traveler Reviews Enterprise Hotel Milan
My friend and I picked this hotel because of the great reviews it received on this site. It is a very stylish hotel, great decor and a fabulous bar serving amazing drinks.
The staff were very attentive and provided great recommendations, help with navigating the trams and umbrellas when it rained!
The room was small but well decorated and the bathroom was great.
The highlight was the excellent breakfast buffet.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to enjoy a weekend city break.
We stayed at the Enterprise Hotel (4 *) in August, during the time of summer holiday in Europe. It is a 10-minute taxi or a 20-minute tram ride from the Central Train Station. Located a bit from the city center, one must either be prepared to walk a long distance or take public transportation (the '33' tram goes to the Central Station, and the '1' and '19' trams go to the Duomo and the center of town). Tickets, which can be purchased from the newspaper stand nearby, cost 1 euro, are good for 75 minutes after they are first used and are transferable from trams, buses, and the subway. There are ATM machines ("Bancomats"), restaurants, and grocery stores within 5 minutes' walk of the hotel.
We stayed one night in the enterprise hotel and our stay turned out to be a nightmare. First upon arrival at 13.00 h our room wasn't ready so we had to refresh ourselves in the fitness bathroom.
The Enterprise exceeded all of our expectations. We were staying over on our way back from a 12 day tour of italy before getting a 7 hour train back to Paris. All we really wanted was somewhere to chill out before heading home & we like very modern contemporary hotels.
Excellent hotel in Milan. Very sleek style throughout. Rooms are clean, quiet (we stayed on back side of hotel, facing courtyard) and comfortable. Nice bathroom, good water pressure, air condition, TV with CNN, etc. Breakfast is included in price, and it's very good. Front desk is very helpful, too. This hotel is a bit out of the city center (maybe 30 minutes walk). I would not recommend taking the tram 19, as others have suggested, as it takes too long. Instead, take bus No 27, which is much quicker, but be sure to ring the bell when you want to get off (you'll see the Duomo, so it's obvious). There's a great pizzeria down the street from the hotel: walk a few blocks on Corso Sempione in direction of city center, staying on hotel side of street. It's called Anemia e Cocci, or something like that.
Nice place to stay
Just spent the weekend in Milan at the Enterprise Hotel, definitely a nice place to stay with a clean and modern room. The breakfast buffet really is great! The unfortunate part is the distance from the hotel into central Milan but trams no. 1 and 19 stop very close to the hotel and seem to run quiet frequently. Strongly recommend the restaurant Trattoria Milanese (Via Santa Marta 11) to the west of the Duomo, a lovely traditional restaurant serving delicious meals and vino with very friendly staff.
The Enterprise Hotel is certainly different. Cool, spacious, marble floors throughout the public areas, modern art on the walls, aesthetically pleasing colour schemes, generally detached and calm laid back atmosphere.
I stayed at the Enterprise for two nights just before new years eve and was delighted by the quality and service at the hotel. My wife and I had booked a basic room using tripadvisor for a little over $100 per night. The hotel is modern and I would say they managed what few hotels of this kind can by pulling off a unique boutique hotel. The design was very well done both in the hotel and in the rooms. The rooms and bathrooms were quite large for european standards. We did not have a view being on the first floor, but it was very quiet. The breakfast buffet that was included in the price was fabulous. The staff was very polite and helpful, the maid carefully arranged our clothes and toiletries that we had strewn about the night before. The front desk recommended an inexpensive family pizzeria around the corner from the hotel that was quite good and the following night when we were looking for a bar got us into a club in an old church a short walk from the hotel with serious face control, and we were definitely the worst dressed as we had not had time to change. The hotel is a bit out of the way but taxis are quite cheap 6-12 euros to most places of interest or take the tram. Milan is very expensive in the main tourist areas, but venture 15 minutes away and you can find great deals. Try Il Salvagente for great deals on designer clothes and the port of genova canals for good restaurants.an
Very Nice hotel
Nice hotel. Very modern. I would not bring the family here. It is more for the business traveler. The downside to the hotel is that it is not close to the downtown area. You will need to take a 20 minute ride on the tram. Also, everything closes at 7:30p. Even the restaurants.
Spent a couple of nights here. A little out of town, but hop on the No.1 or 19 tram (1€) to any part of Milano (very frequent).
Hotel was very quiet when we stayed, all the staff were excellent, especially at breakfast - which was sublime!
Rooms small but clean with modern decor, not as impressive as I was expecting but most enjoyable.
If your after a nice quiet stay in the big city, I'd recommend it. But if you want to be where the action is, go elswhere.
