Nice modern hotel near the Duomo di Milano
Nice modern, clean hotel near the Duomo di Milano. We traveled as a family of four with two teenage children, the attached room was actually a connected suite with a meeting space that they converted into a bedroom with two single beds. The combined rooms only had one bathroom, which was very modern with a huge walk-in shower and multiple shower heads. Toilet and bidet seems to be the bathroom norm in Italy. Each room had a balcony as well. The included buffet breakfast was the best we had in Italy: scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, cold Italian deli meats, cheeses, pastries, yogurt, cereal, breads, fruits, juices, coffee / espresso - the works.
We only stayed one night after arriving from the Amalfi coast and then flew Emirates back home from Milan. By getting up super early (left the hotel at 7:45am) we were able to take a taxi to see the Last Supper without reservations. The tickets sell out fast, so you need to get to the museum by 8am to buy tickets for the 8:15am viewing. Following the Last Supper, we walked to the Sforza Castle and the Duomo di Milano. Before 9:30am the lines are much shorter at the Duomo di Milano, we got to see inside the cathedral as well as take an elevator to the dome for an extra fee, all before our Noon checkout time at the hotel. In four hours we ran around like crazy but saw all the major sites in Milan, checkout of the hotel, and caught the express train to Malpensa airport at 1pm for our 4pm flight home. Perfect!
