... the Duomo, glorious in the afternoon sun. The girls loved the chocolate stand that featured it's truffled seated on the toe of a life size chocolate stiletto :) I tried the Paznerotti, delicious! Off we went shopping for the afternoon. The shops are endless, I hunted blue loafers while the Gab and the kids kept their eyes out for the Disney store they'd heard all about. We strolled and enjoyed for a few hours before going into one of the beautiful old pasticceria ...
... car drivers to drive. Luckily he drove well as once we left the autostrada, it was very, very windy to get to our hotel. Also Wendy is probably almost cured of her fear of tunnels as we lost count of how many we went through in the almost 90 minutes it took to get to Monterosso. We checked in at Hotel Palme, checked out our fourth storey room with sea view and balcony and went for a quick orientation walk. Apparently we are staying in the "new" town which is very busy, lots ...
... through Galleria Vittorio Emanuele to get to Via Montenapoleone, Milan's upscale shopping street to droll over the designer apparel. We couldn't resist stopping for gelato which was exceptionally delicious! Just when I thought I was getting the hang of the city, we headed to the Navigli area for "apperitivo".... We were completely lost and walking in circles for 3 hours. We ended up at a subpar Italian restaurant, but were happy to be able to sit down. Desperate to actually ...
... in France on the boarder town of Modane where the police have just escorted a back packer off the train, still in very rugged mountain country at the moment we are stopped I am not to sure what they are doing maybe getting the firing squad together or maybe he will have to join the French foreign legion, the time is midday and it looks cold outside by the feel of the window it is, cloud cover is very low on the mountains with cascading water falls every now and then after the storm ...

Robert day 2
Beautiful sunny day the first since Paris really. Also the first of May and the Europeans take labour day seriously. We decide that Milan is a bit gritty and none too pretty and would head out and spend the day at Lake Como. The drive on the highway was eventful. Arrive in Como and parking appears to be scarce so I decide ...

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...
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.
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
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.
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!!
