Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for a weekend as my wife wanted to have a more central location of the hotel than the Sheraton (in which I would have gotten a Junior Suite at least). Straf didn't care about an upgrade for Platinum and the room we got allocated in no way met our expectations (either in terms of size, nor design, nor...

We stayed at STRAF in Milan for three nights in mid-March, and the location cannot be better. It is a 30 second walk to the Duomo, and sits in the heart of the shopping district. That is by far the best part of the STRAF. The room was comfortable and decently large, and the decor was interesting, but possibly not...

In the shadow of the Duomo, the Straf offers comfortable accommodations with some funky design elements. The bathroom was on the smaller side, and the bed was in the middle of the room...with light switches hidden in the headboard (it took a while to locate them). Our room was right across from the Rinascente department store and above the bar,...

The main reason I booked this hotel was because of the location, I was going to be in Milan for a short period of times. When it comes to STRAFF you are paying for the location and the trendiness of the hotel. The room was nice and clean, not enough space to put your things my dad didn't think the...

We stayed for a night here and we enjoyed it! Don't believe the negative reviews you will read! It's all good here. Very good location, very good service and very good breakfast. Only 2 things i was not a big fan of: the over head shower and the lack of power point in the room.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
