“Incredible location, unbeatable price, amazing breakfast”
Being quite demanding travelers, finding good value hotels in Italy can be a dauting task. We've read several reviews, but in the end chose this hotel mainly because of 1) the location 2) the price (through expedia.com). I was particulary worried that the adjective classic hotel would just be a nice way to say out-of-date. The hotel beautiful and timeless design (attention to detail) was the first positive surprise. Waking up in Cavour hotel, was even better, because the price included an elegant, well-prepared buffet, full of Italian specialties (eg. I had prosciutto with melon). The rooms were relatively small, but nicely furnished. The bed was comfortable, with an American-style mattress. There was no bath tub, but the rest of the bathroom was all in marble. Parking in central Milan in prohibitively expensive, the hotel's rate (39EUR per day) is a headache, but that's unfortunately the norm.
“Hotel Cavour - excellent Milan experience, except of FOREXCHANGE - BE AWARE”
Excellent hotel; very conveniently located (just two stops from Duomo). Breakfast is perfect, room was very clean and bed was very convenient. If you are a couple, ask for king size bed (not two twin size). Very important: when traveling to Italy, especially to MILAN, exchanges some cash in USA and then in Italy take some money from the ATM. In the airport there is only FOREXCHANGE that charged us 17.9% commission plus EUR 4.90 for transaction; their rate was much higher than we were charged by USA bank (after we withdraw money from ATM) or by VISA. On the Duomo square there is another FOREXCHANGE office that charged us 18.90% commissions plus EUR 4.90. Unfortunately we realized about commission charge after the second transaction. In Venice there are many exchange places and some charged 4 - 6 % plus much lower transaction fees. There is Banco Popular not far from the hotel; we took money from the ATM without any problem. From airport we took a bus to the Rail Road station and then subway (yellow line). There are a lot of steps, so if you have a heavy suite case and cannot carry it, then better take a taxi to hotel. The subway tickets are sold by machines, but there are station attendant who speaks English. If someone tries to help you, be aware it's not free and the guy will try to take your change from machine. Be prepared to eat mostly pizza, pasta; quality varies, but we are there to see the art, not to eat : ). We brought a book "25 places to see in Milan", very useful.
“Worth a stay”
Nice hotel. A nothing spectacular. Great breakfast. A little expensive for what you get, even by Milano standards.
“Can't wait to go back.”
Excellent hotel in every respect. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Milan.
“First Milan visit”
It is a nice hotel. Had a lot of European visitors. The staff were very efficient.
“very good location”
I reserved this hotel based on previous reviews on Expedia, and I have to say that I was extremely pleased. The hotel is walking distance from La Scala and Duomo in one direction, the Museum of Modern Art and Museum of Natural history in the other, as well as many shops and boutiques. More importantly, it's in a nice (safe) part of town. For lovers of luxury goods, the hotel is a 2-minute walk to Via Della Spiga, a far more posh version of Rodeo Drive. The room was clean and comfortable. The service was also great. They offer free internet in the lobby, which is most convenient if you're not traveling with your own computer. Overall, I had a fantastic stay, and would stay there again due to its proximity to so many attractions.
We were so pleased with the location of Hotel Cavour. We were attending LaScala the night we arrived and it was just a few blocks away. We were able to walk both to and from the opera at night and also to many places we wanted to visit in the daytime.
“would stay at that hotel if I go to Milan again”
the hotel is very central, walking distance to the shopping center, Duomo and Theater Alla Scala. The breakfast is very good. Although the hotel is old, the rooms are very clean and looks very well maintained.
