Park Hyatt Milan
Travel Blogs from Milan
We had a relatively quiet start to this morning as our walking tour did not start until 10.30. This gave us time to shower, pack, breakfast, vibes mums ( mum S was not answering) and Bethany. It is lovely to hear some news from home. We arrived punctually as that's how we roll and the guide did not turn up. A few others were there waiting as well. We gave up and decided to do it ourselves as we really only have a short time until the train leaves at 2 .05 pm. We went to ...
... of the Duomo. Next to the Duomo is Vittorio Emanuele 11, which is an upmarket shopping arcade (not a movie) that has the most amazing glass dome ceiling and mosaic flooring, the shops and restaurants are all very high class. At one of the exits we came across a little pizza shop that was full of customers standing inside and out with a line of people trying to get in. We figured it must be good and as I was up for a coild beer and a slice of pizza we had to check it ...
We had decided to take the Ferry up to another village on the lakeside, but actually arrived at the Quay in time for an earlier ferry. So we ended up catching the 9:10 ferry to Urio. As we climbed on board, the rain started, and as we cast off, that rain changed to horizontal, so we abandoned to top deck to go downstairs.
Luckily when we reached Urio the rain let up for a while. The only cafe near the dockside turned out to be a restaurant, despite having "cafe" written ...
Well obviously, if you're going to drive in Italy on the first weekend in August, you need to be going north. That was lucky!
Having finished packing up the car with what seemed to be three times as much as we brought with us - how come it fit getting here, and doesn't on our way back? - we added a trip to a supermarket to fill up with cheap booze and Baci chocolates - ah that explains it!
Marco turned ...
... on back to the hostel to collect our bags before reception closed. We chilled out for a while, had some lunch then it was time to head to the bus stop. Waiting at the bus stop became a nightmare, the bus was over two hours late, not a major deal for us but another couple we had gotten talking to were pushing it to make their connecting train. Finally the bus arrived and the bus driver was the rudest man ever, told us we should have ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hyatt Milan
Great hotel in a great location
I stayed at the Park Hyatt Milan in early September, and it was wonderful. The location is perfect - right at the edge of the Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele. My Park King room was on a corner overlooking the Galleria, and was large, modern, well thought-out and very comfortable. The bathroom was huge. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. Breakfast in the lobby bar/restaurant was excellent. It's a modern oasis in the middle of the city.
Top of its class!
Our recent stay at the Park Hyatt took our breath away the minute we stepped into its sunlit atrium. With an exuberant deco that still exudes warmth, the Park Hyatt Milan was stunning in every sense of the word. With an unparalled excellent locale and warm service, the hotel provides a most fitting abode for the sophisticated traveller in the city that spells style, fashion and chic. We only wish that the dining options in the hotel could be more varied and exciting. Nonetheless, we would definitely choose to stay here again on our next visit to Milan.
Fantastic. Superb location. Stunning design (apparently by the team who designed for Amanresorts). Very, very, very professional staff. And the food is outstanding - excellent breakfast buffet, great Sunday brunch and stunning evening meals. Recommended.
A Modern Marvel in Milano!
We visited Milan in February of this year and were privileged to stay in this sleek, modern hotel with warm, friendly and knowledgeable service. The rooms are vast and very modern, yet comfortable and more than adequate for anyone's requirements. They have the biggest bathrooms I have ever seen in a European Hotel! My 17-year old niece was in heaven with the giant bathtub and the large, flat screen TV's. The bar is lively and tons of fun. I am sure we saw more than one fashion model while were there. They serve fabulous canapes free with their 'big gulp' martinis and margaritas. We recommend requesting interior views as there is not such wonderful views in the area (you are only around the corner from the Duomo when you stay here, another plus) and the interior rooms are much quieter. There is a convenient and vast shopping arcade behind the hotel that offers the big department store, Rinascente, along with stores offering everything from Prada to post cards and (believe it or not!) some of the finest Milanese food we had during our entire stay was at the small, family run restaurants in this arcade! Bear in mind that this hotel is very expensive (everything in Milan is) but you are getting the best for your money. The staff is impeccable and I and my family will stay here again when we return to Milan!
Stylish and Intimate
I have just completed my third stay at the hotel, and keep coming back because of the stylish decor and phenomenal location. Staff have been trained to let their characters show through, and service is therefore warm, unstuffy and relaxed. Patchy housekeeping staff are the only obvious letdown.
Valet parking at EUR50 per night is very expensive, and cars are not cleaned even at that price!
The restaurant and lounge provide a beautiful eating environment, although perhaps if management were to reduce prices slightly it would encourage more locals to eat at the hotel. Every time I have eaten at the Park Restaurant, it has been practically deserted. All in all, though, probably the best service of any Park Hyatt in Europe.
I have stayed at the Park Hyatt Milan four times in the last year, most recently in January 2005. The staff is exceptionally well trained, professional, and hospitable. I have never felt even a hint of stuffiness that can often be found at some of Milan's finest establishments--even as an Italian speaker.
The rooms are impeccable, oversized and comfortable. The interior design is a brilliant mix of the natural and the contemporary with subtle lighting, and the use of materials--all in natural hues--provide a relaxing moment for the eyes. The well-planned positioning of mirrors lends an even greater sense of space than the already generously sized room.
The oversized bathroom is like a personal spa area with two sinks and ample luggage/clothing areas. There is a separate oversized rain shower and a large tub.
The beds are exceedingly comfortable--try that for Italy.
The restaurant food is outstanding and priced accordingly. However, the breakfast options are excessively overpriced.
The location is unbeatable, right at the entrance to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. It is only a very short walk to the Duomo, La Scala, or the finest stores on Via Montenapoleone or Via della Spiga.
This hotel is an absolute must. We have particular thanks to give to Mr. Claudio Ceccherelli and his staff for offering truly world-class service from check-in to check-out.
Great Place- Great concierge "Mario"
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this fantastic hotel for three nights during the first week of October 2004.
The rooms are ultra modern, the beds are most comfortable, and the bathroom and showers are the best anywhere. Service at the front desk and the common bar area are exemplary. However, "Mario", on the concierge staff, really made our stay worthwhile. He deserves a raise. He helped us with lots of local advice, and when American Express Travel service could not find us a hotel in Lake Como, Mario came through by finding us another fine hotel room at Villa Serbelloni in Bellagio (even though the travel agents had told us they were booked).
I would avoid the upscale restaurant in the hotel and have dinner out on the town with the locals.
Great New Park Hyatt
I stayed on two different occasions in September, 2004, at the Park Hyatt Milano. From the moment I approached the hotel until I departed days later, I was made to feel as though the entire staff existed only to make me happy, comfortable and feel special. The hotel is new and luxurious and exceedingly comfortable. While the decor and furnishings may not be to everyone's liking, the rooms are large, comfortable, and rich feeling. The bathrooms are huge with walk in showers in addition to a large bath tub. The fitness facility is small but more than adequate. The location of the hotel at the entrance to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele is very convenient. Nonetheless, the outstanding attribute of the hotel is the attitude and hard work of the staff from the general manager to the housekeeping staff to the doorman. They have the ability to go above and beyond the expectations of any guest.
We stayed at the Park Hyatt, Milan during our 6 week visit to Italy in May,2004. After staying in numberous 4 and 5 star hotels during our visit, we found this one to be among the finest. The rooms (especially the bathrooms) are beautiful and first class in all respects. The location is perfect, and the staff goes out of their way to make your visit carefree. The only thing I wish was I had stayed more nights in this fabulous hotel, I highly recommend it to anyone!
Loved the bathroom
Perfect hotel to spend a WE in Milan. Perfect location next to the Duomo, nice room, design furniture and an incredibly large bathroom. We were welcomed by a very efficient staff and found a bottle of wine and basket of fruits in our room when we came back after dinner. The only negative point : despite the really nice setting, the breakfast is a bit overpriced.
Would definitely come back! (but have breakfast somewhere else...)
