We arrived at the Andreola Hotel, tired and bedraggled after a 30-hour flight from New Zealand - the lovely man at the reception desk took one look at us and decided to give us an upgrade to the top floor suite which was absolutely gorgeous. There was a huge bedroom, separate sitting room and spacious tiled bathroom with a double-sized shower. The three rooms were beautifully furnished with magificent views of the Duomo and surrounding landscape. We opted to walk all the way to the Duomo, fortress, shopping streets and galleria but you could take a bus, tram or Metro. The hotel is about a five minute walk from the railway and bus station so it is ideally located for people catching a bus or train from the airport to the central city. The breakfast was outstanding with delicious fresh fruit, cereals, pastries, eggs and cold cuts. Must do: arrive at the Duomo at 9.30am and be the first to climb up the steps to the roof of the cathedral where you are high amongst the spires and can see the Swiss mountains on a fine day. Be sure to be at a bar at 5 or 6pm for apperativo time where they serve free nibbles if you buy a glass of wine, beer or cocktails!

- The Hotel Andreola Central is one of the many historical 4-star hotels in Milan that opened at the same time the Central train station moved to its current location, originally behind the Spanish walls (currently Piazza della Repubblica). The hotel is located in Via Scarlatti, an extension to the Central train station's Galleria delle Carrozze which ends in Corso Bueonos Aires. Over the long and venerable years since its establishment, many VIPs have patronized the hotel: Fausto Coppi, the bicycle champion, prize-winning boxer Primo Carnera and Italian soccer stars during the sixties when the first player contracts were negotiated. ... more less
