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.
The hotel is located in a lovely section of Milan near the Parco Sempione. What I loved most about the location is that it is in a residential area which has a lot of trees. As soon as you get away from the historical center, everything slows down a little. So, there are smaller shops, more intimate restaurants, and small grocery stores.
The building is beautiful and grande. However, the rooms have a modern touch to them. The hotel has a computer with internet access available to the guests, which is very convenient. The breakfast is varied and tasty. The front desk staff was the best-so friendly and helpful.
You are only a shortish walk to the park and metro. The Duomo and La Scala are not to be missed. And, then of course there is the shopping! All levels of fashion and price points, which my husband was grateful!
One restaurant that I highly recommend is the Ristorante Caminetti Del Sempione (Piazza Sempione 8). It is located near the Arch (you can see the Arch from the entrance to the hotel). The food is amazing! The staff is friendly and the owner is highly involved. It was so much fun! A special treat is their Macaroni. I know, macaroni you say, but the preperation alone is awesome and this is not some ol' macaroni and cheese that comes out of the box. This is some serious stuff! Try to stick with the daily menu. They will never steer you wrong. And the tiramisu is the best that I've ever had. The street that this place is located on has some super trendy bars with super dressed people. Don't be intimidated if you are not wearing the latest in Italian fashion. Just go in.
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.

... the lunch hour began. The builders came in in hordes. Seated, supplied with bread and wine followed by pasta and then time to get back to work. We moved on and later found a great pizza place. Pizzas are good here (unlike Rome). We then followed Fabio's advice and caught the ferry into Como. We spent the afternoon walking about the main part of the city - lovely old buildings, huge Duomo (surprise!!), partially unfinished waterfront, shops ...
Leaving Milano, we started the day with Bergamo which is an ancient town about 40 km east of Milan we've been hearing a lot about. I have to admit that it wasn't as great as I thought it would be. Maybe it's just me setting my expectation too high.
The old town (citta alta) is up on the hill and we had to take ...
... buses to get to our hostel. After about an hour that included bus rides and lots of stairs, we arrived at the hostel, where we dropped off our stuff and left to explore the city.
We first went to try to figure out the busses and trains (Abby wanted to go to Pisa the next day) in the lower city. However, we were at a loss and gave up on that idea. We headed to the Citta Alta, which is the upper medieval city ...
... no space in over head lockers I didn't know where I was going to put my bag. Thankfully this French gentle man helped. We go in to paris orl just after 10, it was late and by the time we got our bags we didn't want to have to navigate the trains and try to find a hotel so we decided to stay at the airport, I will not be doing that again anytime soon. We literally slept on the floor I think I only got about 3 hours sleep it was so noisy and ...
... higher up. At Alp Grum, 2091m high in the alps, the train stopped for 25 minutes so we could get some photos. Ruby made it her mission to touch snow in Switzerland and wen't walking down the the steep hill 30 metres or so to do it. She bought a ball of icy snow back up. Ah, Honestly, the landscape, scenery, mountains are just indescribable. They're the ultimate definition of majestic. You just have to look at the photos; but not even they come close to doing ...
