Sheraton Diana Majestic Hotel

... Surrounded by the intricate cake like laciness of marble sculpture we walked across the rooftops between the turrets. We took many more photos. After realising that time was now getting short we then rushed down to the stairs, caught the metro back the 4 stops to the Hotel Maddison and walked to 300m to the train station - that's why we booked accommodation close to the station! We made the train with 20 mins to spare so we bought a snack boarded and we were on our way to ...
We receive an SMS from our Emirates Limo driver that he is waiting for us downstairs and we are quickly whisked off to the Airport in style, pity it is only 5 minutes. Rock star treatment at check in and we make our way by train to Terminal 3 for Immigration clearance then a quick look through Duty Free to get rid of the last of my Dirhams, Julie scores a few quirky items.
We arrive at the huge Emirates 1st Class lounge and it is deserted and looks nothing ...
... of our journey.
We were ready, but the Swiss weren't! The most memorable part of the journey was not the beautiful scenery, the picture postcard lakeside villages, the mountains, or the waterfalls. Instead, it was the 2 hour queue waiting to get through the 17km Gotthard-Strassentunnel on the A2. That meant our planned stop in Lucerne was abandoned, and we got to Strasbourg at about 9pm. In time for a late dinner in the restaurant next to the Ibis hotel we stayed at, and ...
... much to Oliver's delight.
We reached Como at about 5pm, and checked into our hotel. That left us time to walk down to the quay, have a drink at a cafe popular with the local sparrows, and wend our way to a delightful restaurant round the corner from the hotel. A short walk along the lakeside helped us to digest it all, before finishing with a bottle of wine watching the busy Saturday nightlife from our room's ...
... my journey, I would talk with other like minded travelers about where they have gone, and what they have done. One girl told me about Cinque Terre, and how it was the favorite part of her trip! So we went! I was definitely not disappointed! It is 5 little towns that were constructed 1,000 years ago by farmers who harvested crop on the mountains. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Diana Majestic Hotel Milan
Room and location terrific. The bar was THE place to be in the evening. One of the nicest hotels - in a city location- that I have ever stayed in.
We stayed here for one night in September. We used Starwood points and as gold card holder received an upgraded room. Our one night was excellent. They put us in a room with a balcony overlooking the back bar/restaurant area and it was a wonderful atmosphere. The room was nice and the bed was heavenly!
Sheraton Diana Majestic- what a majestic place to stay!
I loved staying at this hotel. The staff were so friendly (and some very cute) that it made such a difference.
Our room was spacious, and I also loved the Diana Bar and Garden out the back. Check out the Diana cd aswell, well worth a listen and you can purchase it from your mini-bar. The location of the hotel was good, but a little bit too far from Via Montepolene for my liking, but nevertheless an easy subway ride away. There still were shops around the corner in Corso Buenos Aires.
I cant wait to stay at this hotel again...
A delightful hotel
This was a wedding anniversary weekend to remember. We won this weekend in a competition and could not have done better if we'd chosen ourselves. The hotel is well-situated near the centre, next to a metro-line but in a quiet area. It has bags of character, charm and history, which the staff are all proud to boast about. We managed to obtain an upgrade and got a lovely room with balcony. Bed was huge, we had everything we needed at hand including bath-robes and the room was kept well-maintained during our stay.
The bar and restaurant were quaint but continental breakfast was fairly spartan although good in quality, thankfully it was included in room rate since price was extortionate!
The gardens around the back of the hotel were an added bonus for the location and became a hub of activity at meal-times. Sitting in the sunny gardens for an excellent Sunday buffet lunch was an absolutely heavenly finale to our weekend and we were sorry to leave.
A lovely hotel in a lively city.
Ok for a short stay but very average
Reasonable location abut 15 minutes walk from the centre. Our room overlooking the street was very noisy with workmen starting at 7 am even on saturday. Traffic noise was bad day and night ,we could not have the windows open. Room was small and quite dark. Breakfast was included in our rate but I would have been very unhappy to have to pay extra for what was very simple fare. This put us off using the restaurant but there are a number of really good places in the streets round the back serving excellent food
Well, but can better do...
The Diana Majestic is a well located hotel, near the shopping street and Underground facilities. The building is nice, and the general aspect of the hotel too, but the details need to be renovated (the walls, carpets, etc.). As SPG Gold we got a nice upgrade to a Junior suite, which was large, but so dark. The furniture was a bit old, but the bathroom was perfectÂ we got some Trusardi bath product. The staff was generally rude, but you can find some friendly personsÂ if you have some chance. About the breakfast, please avoid it if itÂ s not included in your rate. ItÂ s overpriced (about 24.50 Euros (!!) for the Continental which is very very poor, with low quality products, and 36.50 Euros (!!) for the buffet, which I have not tested.). Globally a good experience for an italian hotel, but as a four stars one, they should improve the general quality of the rooms & the service.
TINY & Extra charges for quiet rooms!
Checked into the Sheraton expecting a good standard of accomodation as a business traveller. I found the hotel utterly disappointing. I took a single room as I booked late & there was not even room to sit at the small desk provided the room was so cupboard-like. The bathroom also very small & full of handles that you simply bang yourself on when showering.Extremely old-fashioned & poorly kept decor-wise. The noise in my road-facing room on the 4th floor was absoluetly terrible & i requested a change of room-this was possible but at an extra 80 euros a night! I asked to see the room rate which differentiated between charges for a quiet & a noisy room & was met with disdain by the staff! The rooms are poor quality & far too small.Come just for the treddy bar but expect nothing apart from this. Totally overpriced & lacking in customer service (watch the breakfast card too as they ticked mine as included & then on chek-out said this only applied to to the 1st night & tried to charge me for the other 3!)
Just returned from a weekend at the Diana and it was a most enjoyable stay. The staff is very accomodating since I had a problem with my room (the building has not shifted into a/c at that time and it was an unusually warm evening - so with the windows open, the street noise was unbearable. However, they moved me to a room facing the beautiful gardens for the second night). The rooms are good-sized with high ceilings. The bathrooms are large and have windows. Classic furnishings in the room - in contrast to the modern sleek lines in the Diana Bar! This bar is the place to be in Milan! The buffet breakfast is sumptuous.
Fun! Fun! Fun! Hotels these days serve you in terms of providing you with a bed and safety. The Diana takes it much further with the hippest & coolest bar in Milan, a fabulous staff who makes you feel like royalty, and impeccable service. If you can get a reservation, as it always books up, stay here!!
