    Good position as a base to explore the sights of Milano as the Metro and Central Station were close by. Staff were very helpful and courteous at all times and upgraded my room on arrival with no extra cost. Good facilites at the hotel and rooms were excellent. Quite expensive to eat and drink at the hotel however you should expect that given your staying in a 5 star hotel but there are plenty of restaurants and bars within a 5-15 minute radius of the hotel to service your hunger pains. Would definalty stay at Le Meridien Gallia again.

    Good

    Clean, courteious and ideally placed if you want to travel as it is adjacent to the centrale station. Not so good if you are looking to stay in the immediate area

    location is not the best

    A luxurious hotel in a great location. Hotel staff especially the concierge were very friendly and helpful. Design of Bedroom was excellent and beds were very comfortable. The ornate bathroom with all the marble was a delight. Attention to detail was fantastic

    Very expensive for any extras, e.g. Breakfast was €36 per person plus the minibar prices were way above any other hotel I have stayed in. This did not take away from our experience as there were plenty of cafe's/restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel.

    good base point to use for city trips

    Hotel has good bones but needs a refit. Paint, carpets, tv's etc

    polite people on the help desk but the Minibar is incredible expensive (9 Euro a beer),bad TV, no wireless-lan

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    Concierge is willing to help. Ideas for trips, phoning, etc.Are ready to help with baggage. They arranged a room with an extra bed, because we traveled with two kids. (Kids stay free after confirmation hotel, (but you have to book first at Booked.net, that is a dilemma)), but it worked out well.

    Gym, is old, small Pelegrino water will cost you 7 euro... all drinks are expensive, breakfast is also too expensive, 28 euro p.p. I do think that with a better engineered price the profits will rise for the hotel.

    The building, entrance and atmosphere are very nice.

    For breakfast they charge 36 € !?!? The hotel needs more than badly renovation. Everything is old and about to break.

    Very good

    Like the fruits basket and complementary champagne

    However did not managed to open my champagne as they cleared it away from my table before I can consumed it in the last day. Also bought some fruits into the room but were cleared away by their service staff too,,,else experience good

  • 9.2
    Superb

    Great location near most major sights in milan. concierge very helpful with restaurants, travel tips and general info desired

    Was a little warm since the air conditioning was not yet turned on...we would personally liked to have had the option...let the guest decide!

  • 6.2
    Good

    Breakfast was nice and rich

    The general aspect of the interior (rooms, lobby, etc) is bellow 5* category. The hotel really needs a complete restoration. It would rather be clasified at 4*. The doormen rarely help you with the luggage or smth else. The guys from the concierge are very prompt but when asked to help find some tickets for Scala they charged almost twice as much as the value on the ticket. Even explainable the price in the circumstances, they should have made a comment about the difference, at least. not a 5 stars hotel.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Both times that I have stayed at this location, the manager has graciously sent up a welcoming traditional Italian sweet to my room. This has always been a very pleasant surprise.

    For being an 'upgraded' room on the designated SPG (loyalty program) floor, this room was had a much simpler décor and was less clean (soiled cream carpet, dried spots on the bathroom marble floor) than my previous stay. I did not notice what the 'upgrade' could have been.
