I stayed here for business, and the place is absolutely phenomenal. The hotel room is outstanding; it is truly a luxurious spot to stay. The room service food was delicious. The staff are extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and all fluent in English. The place is very quiet, and you do not feel that you are near the central train station at...

Whenever we travel to Milano, we always stay at Hotel Gallia. Very reasonable prices and located right at the Central Train Station, it is a very good choice. We are always in the same room at the fifth floor, with a nice balcony overlooking the Central Station and Piazza Duca d'Aosta. This time we arrived late and we tried out...

This hotel is AMAZING! I like the interior design as it's contemporary with Italian touches. The room is so relaxing and well furnished, and the breakfast buffet is great. The staff is very friendly, especially the concierge, he was very very helpful. It's located next to the main train/subway station, so you're basically connected to everywhere with public transport.

We came from the US to Milan to visit our Italian exchange student, and were delighted with the location and service we received at Hotel Gallia. It is an excellent value, with exceptional service and amenities (especially when booking with Amex). It is also very technical, with current amenities and room features. The 1 down-side is that we were upgraded...

The old hotel facade has been retained, but the hotel itself is a modern, stylish property. The staff was terrific in every way--from the warm greeting and efficient check-in, to the servers in the bar and restaurant. The room was large and we were offered a complimentary room upgrade. Everything at this hotel clicked for us and we would visit...

It is still a luxury hotel of the 21st century; but then you could be in any "box" expensive hotel. The hotel in 1990's was a lot more fresco ceiling and very well sound proofed. This time, you could hear intimate sounds in the middle of the night. And, through the single skin connecting room doors, smell smoke on the...

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.
