Brunelleschi Hotel
Ranked #104 of 431 Hotels in Milan
Reviewed 26 September 2012

The hotel is in a good location for the Domo and Galleria. Otherwise, the room had fabric wall coverings that were just a little grubby. The bed was not very comfortable. When we asked for a restaurant recommendation we were sent to an overpriced place a few blocks away that had only English menus. When we came back to the hotel and sat in the lobby with a drink for a while, we saw all the people that were in the restaurant. I'm sure it was some type of kick back because it certainly was not for the food.

If you have been travelling a long time and are cramped by hotel rooms, this one will make you feel at home. Large room, large bath! Enormous breakfast offerings. Competent staff. The most expensive place we stayed but that is Milan. The cute charmer in Venice was less. The best part is that you can walk to Duomo, la Scala, Castello Sforza, and Vittorio Emmanuelle.

Since I found this hotel to be pretty standard, I will just share the basics of why:

Pros:
-Location! The Brunelleschi is practically steps from the Duomo.
-The staff were fairly helpful.
-The breakfast offering was plentiful.
-Cleanliness. The hotel is very well maintained.

Cons:
-The hotel is out of date and feels stale.
-There is no wifi in the rooms. This was an inconvenience as I was staying at this hotel for business and felt chained to the desk.
-There was no shower curtain or door in order to prevent water from getting out of the shower and not getting on the floor.
-Not so specific to the hotel but to the room I was staying in... it was located near the tram tracks and in the morning the noise from the tram was disturbing.
-It felt unsafe. They use physical keys which are attached to heavy keychains. They ask that you return the key to the front desk before leaving hotel property and just asking for it back when you return. Which is understandable, however when you return you just tell them your room number. No ID requested; they don't even ask your name.

We choose brunelleschi, based on trip advisors reviews, and overall it turned out to be the right choice...

The best thing about brunelleschi is its location, since it is in the very centre of Milano, 5' minutes walking distance from Duomo, shopping area, 7' from la scala, 11' from the castle and the cadorna train station that takes you to the airport for only €11. And despite that is in the centre of milano, the same time is situated in a very quite street...

The rooms was very comfortable, very clean and also had a great jacuzzi in the bathroom. The staff were very helpfull and nice.

Breakfast was just great.

All the above come in a very reasonable price.

I'll definately stay again in brunelleschi...

I cannot fault Hotel Brunelleschi. We arrived early in the morning from a long and very tiring trip from Australaia. The check in process was made very easy by polite and friendly staff and we were able to access our room straight away. Our room was clean and very well appointed and had the most fantastic shower. The breakfast selection was outstanding. The hotel location is excellent, just a few minutes walk to the Duomo and easy access to other sightseeing. The only negative is that there are not many choices for an evening meal nearby, but a stroll to the Piazza Duomo provides plenty of choices and of course the hotel has its own ristorante for those too tired to venture out after a busy day sightseeing. I would not hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend this hotel.
