... to the hairs on my arms. I calmed a little when I worked out they weren't alive just some bits from plants that appeared to be superglued to me. Took a while to get them off me. There followed a surprisingly long period of walking along while my little brain thought out that if I had been walking in shorts through plants that managed to stick bits to my arms then maybe, just maybe, I might have some bits on my legs ...
We woke up and walked down the street to have a pastry and coffee before leaving for the airport. We are looking forward to the Rick Steve's tour portion of the vacation. Flew to Rome and transferred to a flight to Milan. We made a quick visit to the Duomo (inside and top) and the nearby 1870's shopping galleria. We arrived during Milan's "Fashion Week". We saw red carpets at ...
...After the Pasta at the cafe, we headed back to the Hotel and had a chat with Angelo the owner. Once again the dreaded European Union came up in conversation. I had wondered why prices had gone up a lot since my last visit to Italy a couple of years back.......Angelo told us that taxes had gone up......but he saved the best till last.......income tax is now around 80%........so that's 80 % to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Lancaster Hotel Milan
Excellent Hotel - Should be more than 3 Stars!
Myself and my husband stayed there for 3 nights end of October.
The staff were friendly and spoke superb English.
The Hotel decor was Art Deco and the rooms were well furnished and even had double marble sinks in the bathroom!
The Hotel was well situated and the Park Sempione was a short walk away.
If you are travelling with RyanAir to Bergamo Airport, the Orio shuttle bus will take you to the Central Station and then the Hotel is a short taxi ride away....
When travelling back to Bergamo give yourself a couple of extra hours to get there, as we just about made it (the traffic in the evening in Milan city was a nightmare)
It was our first time to stay in Italy and have to say it won't be our last.
Excellent value Hotel Lancaster
My family of three stayed at Lancaster and we had a good time. The hotel is about 8 to 10 euros by taxi from the places we wanted to go by taxi--the Duomo and the Central Station. That's the only downside.
Otherwise, this is a fantastic hotel. Well-kept, clean and for a hotel in a major city in Europe, excellent value.
My family and I stayed at this lovely hotel for sadly only one night. While Milan is industrial, do not discount it as a stop over. There is so much to see.
Our stay for two nights at the hotel were delightful. The staff were very helpful and informative. The rooms were very pleasant and the breakfast was extremely good. The hotel was situated just slightly away from the centre but it was only a 10-15 min walk away across a lovely park. I would strongly recommend this hotel
Great room, lovely location
We enjoyed our short stay at this hotel very much. Near the Parco Sempione, it is also a pleasant walk to Santa Maria della Grazie and Cadorna North station (though I wouldn't recommend walking to the latter with lots of luggage). The hotel staff was extremely helpful and spoke English. The best part about the hotel was the room: large, airconditioned, comfortable, with a huge bathroom. The hotel also supplied a crib for our daughter.
Very good service, rooms are a bit small but have everything you need. Located in a very good district - safe, quiet, and clean. close to a large park and the city castle. Connection to the main stop in the city - Cadorna is 12 min walking or 3 min by tram (a ticket for 2 days is 5.50 euro). I recommend this hotel unless you prefer the heart of the city center. Ration price / service is very good.
