Hi everybody, Firstly I want to underline that it is very very very closed to the famous Duomo square. This is an enough reason to stay in Hotel Rio. Also rooms are clear and big enough. Maybe breakfast can be more good. There is only negative thing is the city noise. Aspecially tramvay makes it. If you ask me I...

Hotel Rio was an excellent choice for our Easter holiday in Milan for 3 days. We have been to Milan before so this time we only went there for a short city break, just to roam around and fill ourselves with geloatos and scrumptious Italian food. We didn't have high expectations from the hotel as being the Easter weekend, all...

We had a short stay here but it was very central and comfortable enough. The shower is very small and our room was right outside the tram track/stop so I did not sleep that well. My husband slept like a log though. I enjoyed the free breakfast. For price and location you can't beat it.

This hotel is perfectly located one corner away from the Duomo. However rooms are like seperated by cardboard. I could hear people snoring and flushing toilets! Breakfast was decent and bed was comfortable. Rooms need to be cleaned and dusted more often though. I would revisit if there is an option for a quiter room...

First of all this is only a 3 star hotel, so we did not expect too much. The location is fantastic and all inside the hotel was a pleasant surprise. The room was spacious, clean and tidy with everything we needed, including a large shower room. The walls are only painted but nothing wrong with that. It looked out onto...

We were 3 single men in our sixties in Milan for 2 nights in Sept 2016 to see the opera. This hotel suited us perfectly. The location is great just around the corner from the Duomo, the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, the Museo del Novecento and la Scala itself. It is also quite close to the Sforzesco Castle and the Brera...

I've stayed in this hotel for 1 night in a single room in September 2016. The location couldn't be more central. It's literally 2 minutes away from the Cathedral, walking distance to all attractions. Subway station very close too. Check-in was efficient and quick. My room was small, the bathroom extremely so, and looked somewhat dated and worn, though there...

The hotel is very well located, only steps from Piazza del Duomo, a Metro station and shops and restaurants. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was really spacious. The breakfast was really really good, offering fresh pastries, bread and fruits, juices and deliciously strong Italian coffee.

Our family had three rooms here in July. The best thing it has going is the location and value. It is a typical urban Italian hotel with the challenges that brings. Good air conditioning. Breakfast ok. Jimmy was the best worker there. He was very helpful.

This hotel is literally a few meters away from Piazza Duomo. It is basic but very clean and with a lift. Wi-Fi a bit weak but works well enough. Rooms are rather small but to be expected with such a centrally located hotel.

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.
