I do travel often to Milan & have been forever looking for a nice hotel with charm and nice service. I have been more than pleased to discover this little gem in the center of the city. I looks like a very nice "maison bourgeoise". Just push the front door and enjoy the ultra nice & welcoming staff. They will... More

We loved the location, specially at night, the ambiance of the hotel, the ecclectic decor, NICE! We had two rooms. Mine was nicer but NO cooling. My friends' was smaller, but reception gave them control of temperature. I was moved to an adjacent room with control of thermostat but the room smelled like a pizzeria over, not controllable. They provided... More

I stayed one night on my last night in Italy before going home. Earlier in the week I'd stayed in another neighborhood in Milan but wanted to experience the Navigli area and found this hotel. It's right on the large canal, I had a canal view room with a small terrace which I was concerned might be noisy but the... More

We have just returned from a four night stay here, the hotel is superb. The staff are really pleasant and helpful. The rooms are very clean, as you would expect. The position of the hotel is enviable, as it is right on the canal. The food in the restaurant is superb, and not to be missed. Milan of course is... More

We pair were away for a girly weekend and chose this boutique hotel because of the great reviews, the look of the place and the location. The Navigli area is great - really lively at night with people out for the evening passegiata. Not rowdy though, plenty of people of all ages. We were really pleased when the reception staff...

This hotel was located on the canal, so not right in the centre of all the tourist attractions. However, it was about 10 mins on the underground (which was a 5-10 min walk away) to get anywhere in the city centre. The hotel itself had so much character, and the canal area was fantastic if you want a bit of... More

Went on a business trip to this hotel and my expectations were high because it was massively recommend by a few friends. I was even more surprised and pleased by it that I expected. Everything was brilliant. All new and modern but at the same time decorated in a traditional Italian style. People were super nice at the hotel too.... More

The Maison Borella is located along one of the visible portions of canals that used to encircle the city. The Navigli District has become an upbeat neighborhood for meeting friends and dining out in the evenings. Our hotel was located a short walk from the street where the taxi dropped us off. Check in was efficient and the porter was... More

Lovely place, very warmly welcomed by Ahmadou (very kind, very happy guy!) as also Alessandro from reception team. They both made our trip quite better. The bar/restaurant team is unfortunately less friendly. The rooms are sweet and all fine - just a bit loudy.

Staying in Navigli

Neighbourhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
