I stayed at the Gallia in September 2015 during the Milan fashion week, which was my fifth time to visit Milan but first time to stay in the hotel since it was just brand new. I am an architect and i was amazed as soon as i entered the building for the excellency of how they mixed the classic style...

Just returned from a 3-day break at this lovely place next to the central station. The location, only a few minutes away from the Central Station, is definitely a plus but above all is the friendliness of the personnel. The newly refurbished property offers state-of-the-art rooms with high-end technology amenities. The food quality and selection at the breakfast buffet was...

I was in transit on my way to Venice and wanted to be close to the train station which was literally across the road, 10 seconds walk !! And super easy to cross. Breakfast is amazing- has everything you could ask for with some super helpful staff that even refill your juice glass from the buffet station. I will also...

Sometimes there is more than just the cigars that make moments at a cigar room extraordinary. The excelsior cigar room has it all, but the gem that makes them special in my mind is Piero - who works in the lounge bar and cigar room. There was a good selection of Cuban cigars for the casual smoker and a very...

I'm currently staying in the hotel and checking out tomorrow morning. Where do I begin... yesterday after checking in we noticed the room was extremely hot.

The hotel has very modern rooms, lots of power points in useful spots, USB charging, great lighting system, small touches like being able to put on the room privacy from the bathroom are well thought out, we had a room with two small balconies - was great to be able to open the doors and take in the view of...

This hotel is wonderful. It has a terrific location next to the Central Station and a Metro. I stayed in February for 4 nights in a comfortable, spotlessly clean room overlooking the square in front of the hotel. Breakfasts were excellent. Two luncheons taken in the hotel's own restaurant were very very good indeed. I would definitely stay here again....

Incredible hotel with exceptional furnishings and an ideal location. The rooms were very quiet. Being across from the railroad station was a big plus. You can catch the subway very easily to get to the Domo and Galleria. Also, do yourself a favor and take the train to Varenna. Its 1 hr to Vareena and from there you can walk/climb...

We stayed here for 7 nights in late April. The hotel is modern with sleek design and mirrors at every corner. The staff was wonderful; going above and beyond. Our Gallia Room, while a bit on the small side (but not compared to European standards), made good use of space and I enjoyed the terrace overlooking the Centralle Train Station...

The Excelsior oozes luxury from the first moment you see it. Located opposite the Milan Central station it's in the heart of the city. A fleet of brand new Maserati line the street outside and there are more doormen and valet staff than many hotels I've stayed at. The lobby is glorious and there are plenty of staff here too...

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.
