The Gallia is a lovely hotel, beautiful rooms - only criticism is room service which is really not very good. The food arrives well presented but its average at best which is a little disappointing. Also no movies on demand ! and the choice of TV channels is not that abundant if you want to watch anything but news.

Everything as expected for staying at a hotel of this calibre... - location, very convenient, across the street from the central train station/metro - toilet paper and soap is replaced after one use (which does seem wasteful, but the concierge was happy to inform the housekeeping staff to stop doing so) - knowledgeable and courteous staff... who followed up on...

Set in a grand building, this hotel was recently renovated, and now offers spacious, modern rooms. My SPG status was also recognised with a room upgrade. Great location just steps away from Milano Centrale and the metro, it offers easy access to the rest of Milan. Don't feel like taking public transport? No problem. Take advantage of the hotel shuttle,...

Very spacious and well designed luxury hotel. Bathroom are big and they use Trussardi amenities. Entrance of lobby is very grand, doormen are very friendly. Surrounding of the lobby is very clean and spacious. The only setback is that the housekeeper don't really speaks English, they always sent the wrong things. And they were slow in action too.

This location is very close the Central Train Station. It was a very quick and easy walk to the hotel. My room was nice. At first I was impressed by the towel warmers. And then found out it's pretty standard to have them in Italian hotels. Why don't they have it in the US? Maybe I just notice them until...

Looks like recently renovated, I must say that the renovation style is gorgeous, it's modern, well balanced. The decorator did a nice research job to find such a unique style and furniture. Staff is ver welcoming and the quality of the service is top.

Staying in Stazione Centrale

Neighbourhood Profile
Stazione Centrale
Central Station represents a bridge towards the future. Impressive skyscrapers and new age buildings stretch the skyline with the majestic Unicredit Tower cutting through. Surrounding it are large towers that define Piazza Gae Aulenti, where the fountain and the Monumento Trombe leave one breathless. A famous building of the district is the Vertical Forest, where the innovative materials and trees planted on the terraces are a unique mix of nature and man-made construction. In the district, there is the Monumental Cemetery, known for its antique tombs with sculptures portraying angels of commemorative scenes many will find touching.
