    « Perfect for weekend break! »

    We stayed here for 2 nights- got a really good last minute deal - hotel was perfect for access to underground station. Staff recommended a great pizzeria around corner and vouchers for Prosecco in the American Bar were a nice touch too! Room was small but had everything we needed - safe, wifi, tv, hairdryer- on 3rd floor with balcony overlooking street - noisy at night but to be expected - not really a problem- ears plugs available at reception. Didn't use spa but it looked lovely. Breakfast was good- hot and cold food and plenty of choices- panettone was another nice touch! Staff very helpful although one waiter at breakfast rather rude and abrupt. Roof terrace good for photos. Stored our luggage for us at checkout at 12pm - good, efficient system. Will definitely return!

    Staff we're extremely helpful and location is great for shopping and nearby metro station Lima the only part I didn't like was the breakfast as the coffee cappuccino and the juice was not at all tasty they need to check some items in the.breakfast buffet

    « A great base to explore the city or for work »

    This is a Best Western with all the trimmings. It totally changed my view of what a Best Western is. This hotel is great for business with lots of practical perks - a business center area, bar to have a relaxing aperitivo in the evening, an ample lobby to sit and do work in, a small spa for treatments, an indoor pool and gym, a steam room/sauna area, and ample plug points in the room. When you need to unwind on a work trip, this place offers you a place to do that comfortably. It is conveniently located next to the metro so you can be at the Duomo in 10 minutes. The immediate area around the hotel has high street shops and lots of good places to eat within 10-15 minutes walk. Great value for money - I will definitely be back!

    « Enjoyable Stay. »

    Just returned from a two night weekend stay in The Galles with a group of friends. Being regular visitors to Milan we were looking for a good quality hotel at a reasonable price and were not disappointed. This is a modern, clean and efficiently run hotel. Rooms were fresh, clean and had all the required equipment, air con, wifi, digital TV, safe, minibar & hot drinks, hair dryer. Breakfast was excellent with an large array of hot and cold options. Great leisure facilities with gym and pool. Nice American bar and reception area. Whilst its location towards the north of Corso Buenos Aires does not have the buzz and food and drink options other areas of Milan offer, it is clean and safe with enough options to get by. There are more happening areas but you have to weigh this up against the quality of hotel and budget. Also the fact that the metro is literally at the front door gives you quick and easy access to wider Milan. I was very pleased with my stay and would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again.

    « Small rooms in boring area »

    The rooms are small, you can hear the neighbor very well, unfortunately for me. The room was not so tidy and the shower were so small, I almost got stuck. I don't like when they spray the rooms since i have asthma. If you are sensitive and have asthma, this is not your hotel.

    « Just checked in and already disappointed »

    My boyfriend and I just check into this hotel tonight, thinking we're going to get breakfast for €1 per person each morning but as it turns out it costs €5 instead... apparently you have to prebook it before checking in to get it for €1?? We could've gotten any other hotel in the area for the same room price with breakfast included... (You, beware there's a €5 city tax per person per night that is added to your room bill).

    We had an excellent time at this hotel in Milan. The whole experience was great. Very nice staff, the room was very clean, modern design, great amenities and fast free wi-fi. Breakfast included was very good!! Perfect location: easy travel to all parts of Milan. I would not hesitate to book here again.

    Great location next to M1 red line metro which stops at all tourist attractions. Buy a 24 or 48 hour ticket at station. Hotel staff friendly and very helpful. Bags can be left after checking out of flights are later in the evening. Breakfast good including coffee from machine, which is illy. Room comfortable, a little noisy from metro but clean and has all one needs. Would stay again.

    « Nice Hotel, Great Location »

    This is a pleasant hotel a ten-minute walk from the Central train station. Although there is a subway stop practically adjacent to the hotel, I enjoyed the walk down the Corso Buenos Aires into the center of the city. I was actually surprised that, though my room was on a lower floor overlooking the busy street, I was never troubled by noise. The American-style breakfast was ample, even for a chow-hound like me. After an exhausting day of touring, it was fun to go up on the roof with a book. The staff were unfailingly friendly and courteous.

    « Excellent Hotel »

    We arrived at Hotel Galles on October 5. We were very well received, greeted by a friendly and very helpful staff. It was especially important after a very long journey. Our room was fantastic, very clean, more than enough towels with a balcony looking out on the neighborhood. Traveling around the city was very easily done from the hotel. Staff was very helpful with directions. Their restaurant suggestions were perfect. The area was filled with restaurants and shopping. A perfect place to start our holiday in Italy.

    « Ideal position for sightseeing »

    Arrived about midday and found that by joining Best Western loyalty club we could get an early check in. Had requested 2 rooms close together, high floor and quiet rooms and all our requests were met. Our double room was a bit small but adequate but the other room, a triple was huge. Very friendly staff who helped us with our trip to Lake Como which was wonderful. Friday night Happy hour included snacks and delicious Palma ham which we watched being sliced. The position of the hotel was perfect for the underground which was €1.50 single trip. Return tickets can be purchased from reception for €4. The swimming pool was quite small but had everything that was needed. Steam room, sauna and chromotherapy room. Always clean and plenty of towels. Breakfast was included in the price. This was quite hectic and seem to run out of everything but was quickly restocked. Usual hotel buffet type breakfast with a good selection of teas and coffees. All in all a lovely stay and if we visit Milan again, we would definitely stay at this hotel.

    October visit to Milan. To visit the attractions and some day trips to recomended places and also hoped to see the Last Supper Painting, which we failed to get tickets. Noise from the trains late and early was cause of lost sleep. Still loved the hotel and good breakfast. Will recommend

    « Excellent location, no sleeping at all! »

    We want to that hotel for 2 days, I have only one good thing about this hotel that the location was great in the mean street and near the metro station. We stayed at a room that the window is viewing to the Main Street, its was noisy as hell and we couldn't sleep, its was like the cars and train are in the room all night long. The second terrible thing was that the ear condition didn't work. It was not cheap hotel at all and very bad experience .

    « Very nice Milan hotel close to Metro station »

    My Wife and I stayed at the Best Western Plus Galles mid-October for 2 nights and found it a very pleasant stay. Check in staff were helpful and we were quickly in our room on the 1st Floor which was of a good size and decent standard. Bathroom also very nice and the shower was absolutely beautiful! Centrale Station was a simple 10 minute walk away. Breakfast on the 6th floor restaurant was of a good standard - fresh scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon etc, all very good including the coffee. Only slight negative was there was a rumbling sound that could be heard from the close proximity of the Lima metro station which is right by the hotel. I presume this is only because we were situated on one of the lower floors, however this would not stop me staying here for a future visit and was not an issue during the night. Recommended

    « One night »

    It is a very nice hotel with helpful staff. Not sure on how central to the sights are as it was a transit stop for us. Only criticism is the while staff gave us a map on check in, they did not offer to write down any sites at all.

    « NEXT TO METRO - EXCELLENT FACILITIES »

    Stayed 4 nights at this Hotel. We were situated on the 4th Floor - high enough to only just hear the Metro rumbling underneath. The room was an excellent size with a very large and modern bathroom. The double bed was soft and of a good size. The TV was large and the A/C was quite adequate with idiot-proof adjustments. The best thing about this hotel besides location, room size were the pool and gym facilities which included a sauna and Turkish Bath, aroma therapy room and massage facility. Breakfast very adequate with good choice of Continental and English breakfasts, pastries and fruits. Very good location to the Metro also. Thanks for a lovely stay Hotel Galles Mike and Lori

    « Good location 10mins from main station »

    I always have a good experience of Best Western, this was no exception. A nice modern clean room with quality bathroom with a Metro 10metres away. The only thing I didn't like were the coffee machines which were not only tepid but also have funny tasting coffee, unusual for Italy, but we asked the staff and they made something decent for us. Never understand why something as simple as coffee should be an issue but its quite a common problem in a lot of quality places. Oh the bar area is also very good.

    « Nice »

    We stayed here for about 3 nights and it was the only hotel that had its breakfast room on the top floor, which made for a nice view. Concierge service was excellent, providing us with information on recommended restaurants to go to.

    « Fantastically located, right in Corso Buenos aires where all the shops are! »

    We visited the Best Western hotels for the first time and were so taken aback by their hospitality! The reception personnel were extremely helpful and nice. The spa area and salt room (!) was a nice touch, even though some of the facilities there (showers were broken).The breakfast was pretty basic, but the staff was super attentive. We will definitely visit the Plus -chain of hotels again!

    « Good value for money »

    Hotel was nice, however room slightly too small. Bed was comfortable, the spa was fantastic. The only bad thing I have to say was the price of drinks were extortionate, can of fanta was 6€!! Apart from that nice stay here.

    « Horrible service »

    We stayed in this hotel in the month of July. Close to the station & the check-in was good. The room was a suite & the AC wasn't working. On informing the reception we were told that the windows are not properly closed that's why it's a problem. The Staff came to check it & finally after 2 hours realised there is a problem with the AC. We shifted to 2 rooms & the next day were back to another suite. Again there was a problem with the AC & this time the whole hotels AC wasn't working. There were 200 guests we were informed but the AC technician had left for the day & couldn't be disturbed. The whole night was terrible. What I failed to understand was how come they didn't have a backup & the attitude of these people that the technician couldn't be disturbed. 200 guests who have paid good money can have an uncomfortable night. This hotel should be the last choice in the great city of Milan.

    Only spent one night here, but could have spent more time. It's location was near the train station and a metro stop. The breakfast buffet was filled with all sorts of choices: eggs, meats, fruits, pastries, etc! Also, the concierge was very helpful and spoke beautiful English. The bartender even made a wonderful martini! I highly recommend this hotel if you are ever in Milan.

    « Staff a bit rude, Services are excellent, Good choice of hotel in Milan »

    The staff can be a bit rude and pretentious but once you get over that, the hotel is great. Good location (10 min walk from Milan Centrale), great amenities including computers, printing, spa, pool, sauna. We were able to leave our bags upon check out and return to avail of the changing rooms and toilets which was a lovely touch. Would definitely come back again and maybe get a smile out of reception!!!

    Very clean hotel. Rooms are comfortable and cleaned everyday. Very good breakfast with plenty of choice. The metro station Lima on the red line is just outside the hotel. The location of this hotel is excellent, in the middle of Corso Buenos Aires. Reception staff very helpful and always happy to help you. Will return to this hotel again.

    « Simply the "Best" »

    Spent 3 nights here recently and we could not fault the premises. The location was ideal as it was so easily reached by metro when catching the airport bus into the city. From Linate the bus took approx. 30 mins and the metro about another 5 mins. The reception staff were most welcoming and our room was first class. There was an in room safe (at no extra charge) which was a real bonus, and tea/coffee facilities which were replenished daily. Breakfast was plentiful with the usual juices, cereals, fruit, yogurts, toast/croissants etc as well as cheeses. The hot food was scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, beans and rice. If you wanted fried/poached/omelette you paid extra. You certainly would not go hungry. We requested and were given a room with a balcony which was lovely. We would certainly stay here again if we ever returned to Milan.

    « Back again.... »

    We returned to hotel galles once more. Smaller room this time, which was surprising given we were return customers. It's funny how the smallest things can be the most annoying. When we arrived the were Tea and coffee making facilities... Little did we know that once we had used the TWO teabags that was that... I asked the maid and she told me to go to reception... Very strange... I assume you need to buy more... Breakfast is a delight, with most things available... The pool is good if not heated.. We are back in a month or so so we be asking for a bigger room next time and maybe a few more teabags.

    « Good choice for city trips »

    The quality does lift the price: The Galles Hotel is directly located on the Metro station red line ( main line ). You are in the heart of Milan. Attention: as the hotel is facing one of the main streets in Milan ask for a quiet room. Then it is perfect to stay here!

    « Great choice in Milan! »

    We loved this hotel. From our checkin to checkout we had great service! We spent 2 nights here and had a standard double room. Room was spacious and had a very comfortable bed and pillows. Ensuite was well appointed also. Air conditioning was very much appreciated as the weather was hot and humid. Located 20 mins walk from Milano Centrale and with four convenient Metro entrances right outside the door we couldn't have been happier. 10 minutes and you are at Duomo. Breakfast was ok and ask for the espresso don't use the machines. Decor is probably a little dated but this hotel is great value in an expensive city.

    « Central and good value »

    Just back from a weekend at Hotel Galles, thought the hotel offered excellent value. The staff on the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful with good local knowledge, recommended a local restaurant which was very good. The spa was peaceful, relaxing and never busy when we visited. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. The only downside was that our air conditioning was noisy, we switched it off by opening the bathroom window which did mean the room was warm but easier to sleep. Would definitely recommend and would return.

    « Don't Expect Much »

    We stayed here with our two young boys. We weren't looking for much, just a clean place for a few days before we flew home. It didn't feel like a very safe area. The hotel was dark and musty. The food was pretty bad, even by Best Western standards. The hallways were always full of laundry carts. And someone on the staff came into our room one night at around 2:00 AM. I chase them out screaming. The front desk staff were really welcoming. But overall, we couldn't wait to leave.

    « Great hotel to sample Milan from »

    Overall: really please we stayed here Positives: - good location as just off a main shopping street but is a half hour walk to the centre - lovely staff who were very helpful and polite - very clean and well kept room - fantastic roof top area overlooking the city - there's a hop on hop off bus stop 5 minutes down the road - a 20/25 minute walk from the station - ate in the restaurant which was lovely but a little on the expensive side - the aircon works! - free wi-fi - quiet - nice, quiet and cool garden area to sit in Negatives: - not that many places to eat around the hotel - nor many bars around - hotel drink prices are very expensive - showers are baths you need to climb into so ask first

    « Brilliant location, lovely clean rooms »

    Stayed for long weekend at end of August as a family with 2 children under 5. The family room was set up with a super king bed and a single bed. We pushed the beds together and slept as a 4 perfectly comfortably. There were light duvets and sheets which were more than adequate in the summer heat. The bathroom was a really good size for a family, no bath but a lovely shower with a seat instead that the kids took well to. The spa and swimming area was a nice touch. Very small but was fine for the kids. No separate area for children but there were foam noodles for them to play with. Breakfast had a good selection of cooked breakfast, fruit, cereal and pastries and a good coffee machine. Service was quick and easy. The packed breakfast option was not to our taste but it may suit others. It consisted of jams, rye bread, crackers, fruit juice and fruit purée. An odd combination in my view. Hotel location was perfect. Just above the Lima underground station and on the main road for shopping and walking distance to most restaurants. Walking distance from the tour bus stop and the central station. Some reviewers commented on the sound of the underground, I only heard it in the spa which is in the basement. From Linate airport the hotel is only a 20 minute journey by taxi that cost a little under €30. Overall a really good stay in a great location.

    « Superb Hotel, very Comfortable »

    Couldn't ask for a better hotel for our visit in Milan. It is located in the Center for everything. There are 6 exists and entrances for the metro just 2 min from the hotel. The room was deluxe in everything thing. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was OK.The shopping stores are next to you to the left and right. If you walked straight forward you will reach Duomo after 35-45 min walking. If you can't walk just take the metro to the close stop to it. Just one advise take the rooms at the upper floors to avoid the sounds (Not so noisy) of the Metro coming and going because the hotel is located above the metro station. We were at room 125.

    5
    « Clean, comfortable and just what we needed »

    We booked this hotel as part of a package to Milan. It's on one of the main shopping streets although a little distance to the main attractions. However the metro is right outside the door. The rooms were clean, of a good size and provided enough TV channels in English so we could keep on top of watching the Olympics. The breakfast was extensive and of good quality, perhaps bigger cups for tea would have been good and a bit more fruit. The staff were helpful and having a gym and pool (although small) with sauna and steam room available was a great way to relax after a long day. Would think about staying again however not it in best location of tourists perhaps better for business or for tourists people who don't mind a little walk!

    We spent 2 days in Milan at the BW Hotel Galles during a European Tour Trip... It is situated almost next to Corso Bueno Aires.... The check in has been swift and the staff helpful.... The room was a bit small and old-fashionably decorated but when one is tired, a comfy bed is the most welcome despite the small space... The hotel pool was a blessing after a few tiring travelling days.... Diner at the hotel's restaurant was awesome and will never be forgotten, the food served beyond expectations.... Good experience overall, wished we could stay longer....

    « Don't think typical Best Western but think quality hotel »

    Stayed in a triple, classic room for three nights. The location is excellent, on a busy shopping street and as soon as you step out the hotel doors, there is an entrance to the 'red line' on the underground train system and if you're slightly concerned about using the underground/subway/tube in a foreign country as I was....there is no need to be here as it is easy to understand, clean, efficient and simple to get round on. The hotel room was more like a quality hotel room than the usual Best Western type of chain hotel. Very nicely decorated with a very comfy mattress on the bed. Large TV screen on the wall with numerous international channels, a mini-bar/fridge and a kettle with complimentary tea/coffee. The only downside was the size of the in-room safe. Big enough for passports/documents and even for a Canon DSLR camera but not nearly big enough for an average sized, 13" laptop computer. The air-conditioning worked but not all that well, however I have to emphasize that I am a bit of a cold temperature freak, so perhaps others will find it perfectly within norms. The bathroom was well appointed and spotlessly clean. The hotel also features a small indoor swimming pool, a gym/fitness room and laundry machines/dryers for guests to use if they don't want to use the formal laundry service. Not many hotels of this standard have that available. A big plus point for families who have been travelling around for some time. I did not eat dinner in the hotel but did have breakfast. Lots of cereals, ham, fruit juice, coffee machines, a few types of bread/rolls as well as patisseries, bacon, scrambled egg and sausages. A fair variety and it was tasty. On the subject of eating........there are several touristy restaurants within a block of the hotel, but we actually saw them heating pre-cooked food in one of these places. A far better bet is a restaurant just two blocks away called Pizzeria Sabatini at Via Boscovich 54. Looks a bit up-market from the outside and almost as if it might be expensive but it's not. The prices are no more than the tourist places and the service is excellent, the venue lovely and a huge menu with genuinely, fresh made cuisine (you can see into the kitchen area and observe the chef cooking your oder!). Not just pizza and pasta but also mains of fish and meat and some lovely desserts. We went two nights in a row whilst staying at the Best Western Galles. Overall, the Best Western Plus Galles appeared to be a good cut above any other Best Western I've been in before. It really does feel as if you are in a quality, 4 star hotel; and in fact, that's exactly what it is. I would not hesitate to return.

    Went there in August with a friend, could not have had a better experience. Polite staff who were ready to answer any questions that we had. Very clean and well maintained hotel Well worth the money. It is also next to an amazing shopping street. On the other hand the shopping experience in Milan wasn't as pleasant. Would recommend the hotel to anyone intending to visit Milan.

    « Ticks most boxes »

    If it's your first time to Milan and you're nervous of navigating your way around the city, or you have a family to organise and travel around with, this hotel is perfect. Placed on one of the main streets that are full of shops and which leads directly to all the key areas if you are on foot, or the underground entrance is outside the door, and incredibly easy to use. Front desk staff are very helpful; hotel is clean, cool and well designed, with a small pool and spa which we found a great relief after a day sight-seeing in the heat. We had two children with us and got two double rooms inter-linked, which was perfect. I would highly recommend an afternoon mooching around the Brera area. All the little streets next to the Pinacoteca di Brera are a delight; plus an evening stroll along the canals in Navigli with supper along side the water shouldn't be missed. Why not a 5 rating? The noise of the underground. Definitely request a high floor room facing inward if you want to avoid the street noise and the noise of the underground. Luckily, we were on the 5th floor facing the courtyard and could hear very, very mild rumbling, but lower down it is no doubt much noisier.

    « Great Location at a good Price »

    Don't let the "Best Western" name fool you. This is a real hotel, not upscale, but very comfortable and at a reasonable price. An excellent breakfast layout for all tastes. It is located right by a metro stop, so easy access to the rest of the city, and only a few stops from the Duomo. I'd definitely go back.

    A very good choice to stay in central Milano. The rooms are big enough, location quite central, only three stops with the metro to Duomo. Friendly staff. One minus: Being in Italy you expect a real breakfast including good bread and Italian coffee. And some delivious juice? The breakfast here was quite ordinary, nothing more :-( The pool and spa in the basement is great!!

    « Location location location! »

    Prior to visiting I couldn't have appreciated the close proximity to the metro station and what a blessing that would be. Stops on the metro are much closer than they are on the London Underground so you really aren't far from anything. Perfect location! Some background noise from the metro but nothing too distracting and the last tube is at 12:30. The hotel has a large lobby and attentive receptionists so despite being a busy hotel, service was efficient. Rooms were a good size and with all amenities you would need. Tea and coffee was replaced daily too. Breakfast was a busy affair(!) but staff need commending on their hardwork to replace empty food stations and clear tables. Hot and cold selection with self serve drinks. Don't order espressos from the hotel though - small, cold and bitter. They're cheap enough and much better out in the city!

This was a delightful break from the hostels I had been staying in prior to coming to Milan, and is excellent value for money.

    « Ok hotel »

    Visited from UK. Stayed 5 nights July 16. Hotel good location next to metro station. Although the vibrations from trains passing underneath can be heard til after midnight. Our rooms were on the first floor so quite loud at times. Rooms on the small side, bed quite close to room door could hear other guest talking (not quietly) along corridor through the night. Free wifi good. Rooms had aircon. Free tea and coffee although not refilled everyday. Room clean enough, but visible dust on the shelf above bed. One free bottle of water in room on arrival none there after. Small mini bar fridge. Gym and pool area all good. Breakfast was chaotic! Too many people to little space. Staff unsure of what was going on. No cutlery and plates readily availvale on more that one day. Food selection was good. Sun terrace on roof good. We ordered a drink at the restraunt to take to the roof but this incurs a service charge of 5.50euro. American Bar on ground floor good. Staff there friendly, prices ok. Other staff friendly enough. Is billed as a 4 star hotel, but have stayed in better 4stars. Tourist tax was 5 euro per person per night. On last night there was a black out which left a lot of people locked out of there rooms for over an hour.

    « Excellent stay »

    I strongly recommend this hotel, in first place for its location, which is at walking distance from the Central Station but long enough so as to feel you aren't in a railway environment. Very convenient also because it's the main shopping area with stores such as H&M, Zara, Benetton, etc. Regarding its services, the hotel offers a very complete breakfast in a pleasant area at the top of the building with good views; it also has a nice and very comforting spa area with indoor pool, which we visited after a long walking day. The room was very tidy and with good bed, a small balcony, coffee/tea maker, minifridge, trouser press, very good in general.

    « Excellent City Hotel »

    We stayed here for two nights in July 2016 and the hotel was excellent. The hotel itself is located in one of the main shopping districts, right by the Lima Metro station, and thus has excellent and quick links to all the main areas of the city. The Duma is around a 10 minute metro ride away. Additionally the hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the main bus station in Milan. If you are travelling on a bus from Bergamo Airport to Milan, this is where you will be dropped off at. The room was spacious, with a very large bathroom that included a bidet and large shower. The beds were comfy, and the 'pillow menu' that allowed you to request different types of pillows from the reception free of charge is great for those that are picky with their type of pillow. The air con had an automatic setting that kept it at a cool room temperature throughout the dat, we found this to be the perfect temperature although you could change the temperature if you wanted. The room also came with an ironing board, kettle, mini bar and safe. Our room offered an excellent view on to the main road. You were able to open the large window and stand on the mini balcony, a nice rarity as we find windows on high floors in hotels usually only allow you to open them to vent. The breakfast is incredible at €4. It includes a wide selection of hot and cold breakfast items, such as egg, sausage, bacon, beans, toast, pastries, fruit, yogurt, ham and cheeses, spreads and hot drinks and fruit juices. It really is incredible value and I'd recommend all guests pay for it. The gym was nice, reasonably equipped with plenty of weights and a few machines. It was clean and is open 24 hours a day. The hotel also has turkish baths, a sauna, himalayan salt room, and small but nice pool. We were surprised that a city hotel would have all these facilities. The staff were polite and helpful. Many of the reviews mention how you can hear the rumble of the metro line. Whilst this is true, it really is a faint sound that wouldn't wake even the lightest sleepers, and the metro line stops running at midnight anyway. It is a bit ludicrous how people book hotels in the centre of major cities and complain about noise like that, but if this is a big problem then I would suggest requesting a room on one of the higher floors. Additionally although our room overlooked the busy main road, the windows soundproofed this completely. Overall this was an amazing hotel, and if we visit Milan again we will definitely be back.

    « Perfect for stopover or a few days in Milan »

    We were two adults and 1 teenager in our room. One double and one single bed. Once again I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the three hotels we stayed at in Italy. Breakfast was included but doesn't open until 7 am. Which is late when you have tours to attend. They do supply a take away box, but it contained all processed packaged foods. No fresh muffins or fruit, which needs to be addressed. The subway is a few steps out the door. We booked two coach tours while in Milan. Both were easily accessed by the subway to the Tourist Info Office in about 8 minutes. There were some noisy children in the room next to us running up and down the hall late in the evening.

    « Perfect location, good hotel »

    I went here with a friend for our trip to Milano. The location of the hotel is in the middle of the best shopping street (in our opinion). They have affordable brands. If you walk further you are close to the Dom and the expensive shops. The metro is also just across the hotel. The hotel itself has a nice spa. It's a great way to relax after a day shopping. Breakfast is also well. The staff is very nice and the rooms are clean and big enough. We had some problems with the shower and the sink, but when we told them they replaced it right away. You can hear the subway in the hotel, it didn't bother us so much. It's also a very crowded area so noise is normal here. If we go back to Milano we certainly would book this hotel again!

    Stayed in a twin room which was functional but quite small. Slightly strange as we had duvets with sheets (not duvet covers!) so felt a bit unclean. Could hear the metro until about 12:30 at night and also right next to a busy main road so could hear cars and sirens. Breakfast was average, would have preferred to pay a bit extra and go to a separate cafe. Pool, sauna and steam room were a nice addition but only used once during our 4 night stay. Location was good, right next to metro stop and easy to get to sights such as duomo. Staff were friendly and very helpful.

    A great hotel right next to the train station, which was perfect for our itinerary. (Note that Milan centre and the sights are a decent walk or a few Metro stops away, but easy to get to). Modern, clean rooms and furnishings, excellent Wifi (free), comfortable bed. Couldn't ask for much more. We belatedly decided to extend our stay by a night and they were able to accommodate us, which was very helpful. Staff were in fact very polite and helpful. Special mention for the bar who prepared some excellent cocktails

    « Excellent Choice Near Milan Central Train Station and Linate Airport »

    We passed through Milan at the very end of our 2 week family trip to Europe and needed a hotel that provide easy access to Linate airport early in the morning. The BW Plus Hotel Galles fit the bill and more. It's a 3-4 block local bus ride (Bus 60, across the street in front of the train station heading east--it comes frequently) or 15 minute walk on a nice day from the train station and a 15 minute taxi ride to Linate airport. Beyond that, however, the hotel was surprisingly pleasant and nicely adorned for a big city urban setting. It sits right off the square at Piazza Lima at the intersection of Corso Buenos Aires which turns out to be one of the main shopping streets in Milan (not necessarily a feature we cared about in our situation). The hotel is very nicely kept up--impressive lobby and plentiful, friendly staff--and our room was spacious and superbly functional. We stayed in 'family' sized rooms (2 adults, 2 kids) throughout our trip and this was one of the largest and nicest rooms we had. There were two separate bedrooms, a nice sized bathroom with clean and modern shower stall, and small kitchenette with a fridge (that wasn't turned on, strangely), and a sitting table near the kitchenette. Ample closet space if you need it and large flat screen tv's in both rooms if you like that kinda thing. The only negative was the indoor pool was very small--our 10 year old who loves to swim actually declined to get in. So instead we had a few hours to kill before dinner (check out the Norrin Cafe Bistro in this area--check out my review) so we ventured down Corso Buenos Aires and waited for the hop on, hop off tour bus to come by and pick us up for a 90 minute tour of the city. What a great idea! Stop #8 was a 10 minute walk from the hotel--well worth it if you want to see a few sights before deciding which ones to explore in greater detail. The kids loved it. We arranged for a taxi to pick us up at 5:00 am the next morning with the help of the hotel front desk and that went off without a hitch. It was a bit pricey despite the short drive--66 Euros including a 10% upcharge for using a credit card. I think I could have found a cheaper shuttle online but since it was last minute I decided not to overthink it and just get the job done. In any case, we loved our short time in Milan and hope to return sometime in the not-too-distant future. If we do so we will surely consider the BW Plus Hotel Galles!

    We absolutely loved this hotel. Friendly people, fantastic breakfast and lovely rooms. The only problem we had is that we specially booked 2 luxury rooms for us, but only got one large room of 20m2 and the other one small. We had to pay for two big rooms because they insisted the tiny room was also luxury. Maybe only because they had gowns in the room! The rest was lovely! Right in the shopping district with nice restaurants close

    I stayed at the Best Western Galles hotel for two nights with my family and it suited our needs perfectly. Located only a few metro stops from the main sites with the metro station exiting onto the square the location is perfect, close enough to the sites without being too busy. Our room was comfortable with two separate bedrooms and basic clean facilities. The décor and furniture was a little dated but perfectly fine. The leisure facilities were nice and clean though the pool is a little small when things get busy. There was plenty of choice at breakfast though it was always busy with a bit of pushing and shoving to get what you wanted!!. The only minor niggle is the very small and slow lifts meaning you need to be patient when waiting to get up and down the floors especially with luggage. Overall this hotel did the job and I would certainly return next time I come to Milan!

    « Noisy hotel with a poor cooked breakfast »

    This visit was just an overnight stay in Milan in order to catch a flight back home from Malpensa and for this the hotel was fine but we would not have wanted to stay longer. Although we were on the fourth floor the incessant rumble of th underground metro trains was annoying. This must have been worse for guests on lower floors. The good point of the hotel is the rooftop terrace on the eighth floor. This gives panoramic views over Milan and the opportunity for city centre sunbathing in peace. In the morning we took the included buffet breakfast. The selection of cold food looked very good but the cooked breakfast was poor. The scrambled egg was ok but the bacon and sausage was tasteless and the fried potato, which is normally my favourite, was horrible. There were no cooked tomatoes or mushrooms.

    « Great location, comfortable stay »

    We've just finished a great 5 days vacation in Milan at Best Western Plus Galles hotel. Very good hotel, convenient location, very near to everything and most importantly very near to a metro station or I'd better say that the metro station is right in front of the hotel (see the pictures attached to this feedback). A supermarket is at 10 minutes walk from the hotel and it is open until 21:00. Just ask at the reception. The room was large, spotless clean and had a mini-bar, air conditioned, a very comfortable king size bed. Our room (220) had a balcony which was really a plus. The big plus for the hotel was the very rich breakfast: lots of options for all tastes and a very good Italian Espresso. The clerks at the reception were extremely patient and took their time to explain and to provide us the good directions and transportation options. A small MINUS: for a 4 stars hotel they should offer slippers and bathrobe in the room by default not by charging the client with 5 EUR. During our stay in Milan we went on a 1 day trip to Como lake on this itinerary starting at 07:00 in the morning: Milan N. Cadorna -> Como Nord Lago (by train) -> Bellagio (by bus C30) -> Varena (by boat) -> Milan (by train at 20:43). Wonderful !!! I would definitely recommend Milan and this hotel as a destination for vacation to everyone and it will be my first choice for any future trip to Milan.

    « Chronic overbooking, old dated room, and poor service. Cut and paste, take no responsibility management responses. »

    We were booked into this hotel through a Delta Vacations package and the hotel was packaged with our flight. The arrangements were made in January--5 months before our trip--and we arrived mid-afternoon on the day of our reservation, right at check-in time. Since we were traveling with our adult son, we had booked a double room and a single room. Well, they claimed we only booked a double and that they had nothing else for us--they were totally booked! I showed them the reservation document from our payment in April that clearly stated one double room and one single room, but then they repeated that they had no rooms and that we could contact our travel agent. Ridiculous, obviously we could not since it was midnight at our home. We waited in the lobby and about 1/2 hour later they came up with a "triple room" for us. A tiny double with a side room (no door) all sharing one small bathroom. After that they just ignored us. This room was old and dated (it looked nothing like the rooms on the website). It was on the first floor looking onto the street (noise all night long). The worst was the subway that rumbled below the room periodically while we were trying to sleep. The next day I woke up early (6:30) and asked about the free early risers coffee and light breakfast. It was shown on our itinerary to be available from 4AM-9AM. I could not find the "breakfast". Out of frustration I asked at the desk, only to be told it was around the corner. Well, what was around the corner was a VENDING MACHINE and, I was told, that it "closed" at 7. Do NOT book this hotel as part of any package. You will be treated with distain and given the leftovers--at best.

    « A really good base for a visit to Milan »

    The hotel is situated right by an entrance to Lima Metro station so even if it's raining you can get to the station in just a few steps. The hotel reception staff are very helpful and make checking in a pleasant experience. Both the rooms we had were clean and tidy and showing no wear and tear. The rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. There is a large TV in all rooms. We had a room rate that included breakfast. This takes the form of an enormous buffet which has something for everyone. The leisure facilities are in the basement and include a gym, steam room, sauna and pool. The pool has a waterfall at one end that you can start at will, a refreshing experience after a long day of site seeing. There are some interesting showers, each with a different way of delivering water in the leisure complex, along with nice toiletries. All these facilities are free. The American bar in reception is very welcoming and is generous with drink sizes. Also a plate of snacks appear with the drinks in the early evening. Prices are reasonable given the size of the drinks. The hotel also has a restaurant on the top floor offering views over Milan. This is also where breakfast is served. The food is excellent and more of a fine dining experience which is reflected in the price- we had a three course meal with soft drinks and beer for 225 euros. It was the best meal of the holiday. Service is friendly and at just the right pace for a dinner. Above the restaurant is a sun deck where you can relax and enjoy fine views over the city. The hotel is situated on avenue buenos Aires one of Milan's main shopping streets. I would definitely return there

Easy hotel to access by car. Breakfast with a view on the sixth floor was as expected with good range of food. Staff were very helpful and courteous. Room was comfortable but not large ,bathroom was good. Shopping outside hotel in via beunos aires was quite convenient also. All in all quite a good value hotel.

    « Very pleasing »

    Traveling with family and friends, we stayed at the Hotel Galles for two nights and quite enjoyed the facility, its service and location. Nice comfortable rooms, friendly lounge service, and enjoyable breakfast. I did not use the spa or pool facilities but my friends used it every morning and thought it very nice. We sure liked the location adjacent to a metro stop but also close enough for us to take a few leisurely walks to several of the historic sites we wanted to visit. A pleasing stay for all of us.

    « Good enough »

    This hotel is a 10 minute walk from the main station, just turn left, It's on the doorstep of Lima station which is 4 stops to the duomo which is probably where you will end up everyday. Got a double for single use, lovely bedroom , I had to phone to find out where the safe was as it was hidden in the wall behind a painting of Milan ! Good wi fi TVs had bbc 1, 2 and bbc world Good coffee at breakfast, downside view of a wall, and to get into the bath for a shower you need to be very agile as you had to lift your leg very high to get in , not suitable for the elderly Reception staff very helpful

    « Beautiful Hotel but not a great location »

    The rooms were really nice but the view was awful and the location not the greatest. The food for breakfast was just mediocre but the snacks at the bar for happy hour were nice and the dinner menu was nice - pasta dishes were good but bread not fresh.

    « Love this hotel! »

    I stayed here for 4 nights on a short trip to Milan with a friend. The hotel is in an excellent position close to all attractions in the city by foot or by metro - Lima station is on the door step. The twin-bedded room we had was completely adequate with a small fridge and comfy beds.. The bathroom was fine with everything you might need including a hairdryer. Breakfast really good - yes the choice is the same everyday but there is a vast variety to choose from - hot food, cold meat and cheese, fruit, cereal, yoghurt, pastries and cake. The custard filled croissants were a personal favourite. (One little gripe - the toasting machines take forever to actually toast the bread - not an unique problem to this hotel however!) The pool and spa area is small but beautiful and very relaxing. The bar and beer garden area also very good. After all that I will say the staff are the best part of this hotel - receptionists, concierge, waiting staff, bar staff and cleaners were so friendly and helpful. I will be visiting Milan in the future and I will be booking into this hotel. A real find.

    The hotel was kind enough to upgrade our rooms for free. The check in was fast. Rooms clean, tidy and comfortable. The facilities were amazing and I could have stayed there all day but had a plane to catch. The hotel was so nice they kept our luggage save while we went out for the day after checking out. Great choice.

    « A very nice spot in Milan »

    I am very happy that I chose to stay into this hotel. We landed at Linate airport and we took the shuttle bus until the Stazione Centrale- 9 Euro -2 ways. From here we took a taxi that left us in front of the hotel- 10 euro each way. At the reception desk everything was smooth and clear and a few minutes we found ourselves into a nice room, with a small balcony, at the second floor. Not all the rooms have balcony, but all of them have windows that can be opened. The room was spotless, with a decent size, with twin beds that can be pushed together to create the feeling of a larger bed. The room had tea or coffee facilities, a mini bar and a large LCD. The space inside the room is nicely decorated and is giving the sense of elegance. I liked the fact that we had marble into the room. The surface can cleaned easier than a carpet and it cannot be stained so easily. The room was cleaned everyday, and smelled fresh each time. The hotel is very well organized. At the 3rd floor there is an ironing room with two ironing machine. The dining area is at the 6th floor offering a nice view over the city. The breakfast was OK. I did miss the tomatoes or the olive in the morning, but I have always found something to eat. Espresso was very good also. On the top of the hotel there is a terrace where you can enjoy drinking coffee or a glace of wine and having very nice views. The metro is passing right under the hotel but the noise is not as loud as I have been expected and I stayed at the second floor. The internet is working great and is free. Beside the noise there is a good thing having the metro so close- the station was right in front of the hotel and after 3 stations, on M1, you can reach Dome. I suppose that you can walk to the Dome, but I did not try because there was not enough time. For sure I would love to come back and stay once more into this lovely hotel.

    « Very good location »

    What I dislike is the room size. It was very small. Otherwise, it was good value for the money. It was 950m away from Milan Central train station. 20m away from Lima metro station, where you can take the metro to anywhere in Milan. Breakfast was very good but limited varieties. However, the overall conditions of the hotel was very good. Staff were helpful and always smile. It was 20 minutes walking to Duomo area.

    « Great Location to tour Milan »

    We enjoyed our say at the Hotel Galles. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast top notch. Close to major shopping and lots of restaurants close by. Has easy access to all of Milan via the metro which is right outside the hotel and only 10-12 minute walk to the train station. Would stay again if back in Milan.

    « Absolutely fine! »

    Stayed here for 1 night for work. Lots of shops around, easy access to all of Milan via the metro which is right outside the hotel. Yes, there is noise and grumbling of the metro underneath you - even though I was on 4th floor - but it didn't stop me going to sleep. Was more annoying in the morning when trying to snooze, but you're in the center of a busy and vibrant city so you would get this same issue staying in the very center of any great city! Just bring ear plugs if you want them. Breakfast was fine, I didn't use the spa as I didn't have time. Everything clean in the room and a good size.

    « Good Overall Experience for a little city break... »

    Have to start off by mentioning the location...this was very good by the way! You're near the shops and the central station and restaurants etc. Very easy to get to other areas from the hotel. The room was perfect for our type of holiday...would just say that the shower was a bit temperamental, but all in all a clean and tidy spacious room. The breakfast was great, the staff were very attentive. I also have to say that the staff surprise me on my birthday with a lovely card and a Milano key ring! We used the pool and sauna facilities and this was all great! I would definitely recommend to stay if you are looking for a quick city break or on a business trip!

    Located virtually above the metro station linking you to most of the sights which was fantastic. We walked to the hotel form Centrale Station, because of taxi a strike, took about 20mins. Reception staff were very helpful at check in and throughout our 4 night stay. Room was adequate, bed was comfortable. We had an issue with our bathroom door, fixed straight away. We used the swimming pool, sauna and massage chair. All brilliant. Breakfast was varied, lots of choice for even fussy eaters. Can get a little busy but wasn't an issue. Food seemed to be replenished at regular intervals. Would highly recommend hotel and will definitely stay again during my next visit to Milan. We bought out tickets to use the metro from reception and tickets to visit the outlets from reception. Thank you to all at Best Western Hotel Galles, for our most enjoyable relaxing stay.

    Twin room, slightly small, fine for 3 nights, great products, teasmaid. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast top floor great variety of food, extended the roof so there are three terraces you can enjoy your breakfast. Fabulous Spa which we thoroughly enjoyed everyday, steam, sauna and swimming pool, a very well equipped gym - I'm told by my friends - I'm no gym bunny prefer the relaxation bit! Wonderfully central on the Main Street. Close to lovely restaurants. We did eat one night in the hotel it was ok nothing to write home about. The windows open which is a plus nowadays you can't open the windows - only a/c, the bonus there are both and you have a choice.

    « Another great stay »

    This was my fourth stay at this wonderful hotel. It is located on one of the main shopping streets in Milan and just next to the Lima metro station, which is very convenient. The staff are polite, efficient and friendly and the rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean and well equipped. I was very pleased to be upgraded to a larger room with a separate room and day bed. This time my room overlooked the front of the hotel on the main street but I was not bothered by noise. If you have trouble sleeping, I suggest you ask for a quiet room at the back. Breakfast is on the top floor and the room is spacious and the breakfast plentiful with a wide choice of food and all top quality. My favourite hotel in Milan.

    « Posh Room at cheap price »

    Me and my husband and daughter came for a 4 day break, I booked this hotel in advance through trip advisor! I was a little worried before I had arrived at hotel if it would be good as the price was excellent. I could not believe how perfect the room was just beautiful, we had a queen size bed and a single, there was plenty of room, it had tea/coffee facilities and a large tv with British channels, the wifi was really excellent signal. The bathroom was quite big, there was a bath with shower and plenty of towels free toiletries a hair dryer with two heat levels. Also had a fridge with cold drinks and trousers press and there was a balcony with chairs overlooking the courtyard. My room included breakfast which was buffet style, the breakfast was ok but wouldn't be worth paying much for. The maid service was good everything was done my only disappointment was on the day before we left she had not replenished the coffee and milk that was complimentary anyway but I liked to use it. There was also a swimming pool and spa and a gym this was free to use and quite nice, towels supplied. Good location easy to walk down to the centre of town. Overall this hotel was very good and if I was in Milan would defiantly stay here again. Well done to Galles!!!

    « Excellent, convenient, and well-managed »

    This is a terrific hotel located right above the Lima Metro station in Milan, making it extremely convenient to get in and out of town. We booked a triple, which is a room that has a double bed on one side, and a single bed on the other, with a short hallway and a door separating us. It was absolutely perfect for the three of us. The hotel is about a ten minute walk from Milan Centrale, and I would advise you to take the walk instead of going up and down Metro steps with luggage (it will require a change of trains). You can also take the tram, but that is very crowded. The hotel is beautifully appointed, down to the last detail. Breakfast is included, and is ample and varied. We stayed in Milan for two nights, went out of town for a few days, and came back for four more. They offered to hold some of our luggage for the interim, so we had only to bring one suitcase when we left town. And for free. This is a great hotel. It is on a noisy street, however, so ask for an internal room rather than one that faces the street, and you will be better off. You will hear the metro gently rumble under the hotel. I would stay here every time I stay in Milan.

    « Nice hotel »

    Check in: Very quick, pleasant staff and they let us check in a couple of hours early because the room was ready. The room: We'd booked just a standard double as we were only there one night. The room was very small and hot. The air conditioning did work but it didn't get that cold. There are no irons in the rooms so iron your clothes before you get there and pack as neatly as you can to try not to crease them. I called reception to see if there was an ironing room but they just kept transferring me to the restaurant because they didn't understand. The hairdryer is a machine on the wall in the bathroom with a hose coming out of it. My hair is long and needs a proper hairdryer, thankfully I had a can of dry shampoo because it would have taken forever to use, so ladies take one with you. Facilities: There's free wifi, a pool, turkish bath, sauna and gym. Very nice to chill out when you've had a long day of seeing the sites. Breakfast: This was included in our booking so I'm not sure how much they usually charge. The breakfast hall was very busy as it was a Sunday but we got seated quickly. There was lots of choice and everything was well stocked up so didn't have to wait for anything. After breakfast it's nice to walk up to the roof terrace, there's some lovely views of the city. Location: Great location. It's a ten min walk from the central station and there's a metro station right outside. Overall we had a nice stay and for a one night city break we got a bargain. I would stay here again and would recommend to others.

    The Best Western Plus Hotel Galles Milano is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. We had three people in our party and stayed in a junior suite.

    « Good hotel , nice amenities, metro noise »

    I stayed 2 nights in this hotel , the prices was 3x times than normal due to furniture exhibition although I was not going there. The location is great 10min walking distance from milano central rail staion. 20 min to Doumo. The Lima station is just outside the hotel. The front disk was nice and helpful. I booked superior room which I can get advantage to early check in(11:00) but I didn't happen and I waited until 14:00. The room was good in sized and comfortable mattress and pillows. Also I have advantage to use self laundry by free of charge because My room is superior type but I didn't use it. The bath kits was fantastic. The breakfast was good. The swimming pool is small but good , the depth is 110cm. Nice sauna and acceptable gym. The only disadvantage was the noise from the metro most the time, my room was in first door 131 , also it was written in website that rooms are soundproof but I can hear anything outside the room. I will give this hotel second visit but I will ask for room without Metro noise.

    Well situated hotel next to metro stop giving direct access to central Milan. Can hear the metro in some rooms, but it did not disturb us. Nice clean room - decent size. People at front desk quite helpful. Breakfast buffet with good choice. Small gym. Our daughter loved the swimming pool. Underground parking (not cheap but it never is in Milan).The exit of the parking is right next to the hotel but finding the entrance was quite frustrating! This was more than made up by a lovely touch - as we picked up our car to leave town we found that the windshield had been washed and that they had left a bottle of water for the trip. Much appreciated!

    « Convenient and central »

    A great place to stop over if you are travelling but I can't say I would like to stay more than a couple of nights. This is more of a business and lay over accommodation and is kept to a high standard. The restaurant is very interesting on the 6th floor with excellent views of the city. The food is very good but inconsistent and breakfast is busy but a very good choice. There is some notice feel the tram but that didn't worry us. Rooms are spacious and clean with nice bathrooms. We stayed both on our outbound and inbound journey to Rome which we much preferred as a city. Very accessible to the rail networks although funnily enough not by the tram station outside which was a little perplexing when we first arrived.

    « Terrible nights sleep »

    A clean, well positioned hotel for the metro. That much is positive. The receptionist checked us in saying we needed to pay in full in advance. This meant that we had no recourse to complain about the terrible endless overhead banging noise in our room from the terrace above. The noise from the trains coming into the station was quiet in comparison. They never offered to move us until 4 hours before check out at 4 am in the morning. We stayed five nights. Not once did they sort out the noise. The fold out double bed (so they could call it a family room) sloped upwards towards the foot end rendering the bed very uncomfortable. Unhelpful reception. Left feeling exhausted and upset that nothing was resolved. On a positive note it was well cleaned and the children enjoyed having a pool to swim in.

    « Could have been better »

    My wife and I stayed here for four nights. The reviews were generally very positive but unfortunately I can't say it was so great for us. Whilst the Hotel is very convenient for the Metro and is generally very welcoming, I was disappointed that our "de luxe" room on the third floor was quite small and surprisingly noisy due to the Metro line running under the Hotel! The coffee machine was all but inaccessible - as for some reason they always are. Bed was very comfortable. Our main concern was dropping in to the hotel bar, just by Reception - it hardly ever seemed to be staffed. Every time we had to ask Reception to call the barman who obviously had better things to do. The coffee machines at breakfast always seemed to be breaking down, as did the toaster on one day, and staff seemed unconcerned at such issues. A pity, as it could have merited four stars....

The first time it was on 2nd floor and the rooms were very spacious and nice, the second time we had our rooms on the 5th floor and they looked like a palace. Breakfast room on the terrace is great, the pool is wonderful for the kids, location perfect next to the tube stop. Overall - excellent and thanks!

    « Great hotel in excellent location with bonus of a nice spa facility »

    We had a two night stay here over the Easter weekend. Location is excellent a short bus ride from the railway station and about 5 minutes on the underground metro to the Doumo. The bedroom was delightful and extremely comfortable with a great bed. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Breakfast was excellent...even on Easter Sunday when the hour went forward and there was a late rush the staff were truly brilliant providing service with a smile and constantly replenishing the fine quality food. Amazing. Aperitivo is just on a Friday but we did not partake. The leisure facility is super and we had the pool to ourselves mid afternoon. The hotel has a nice roof terrace and also a garden area...we enjoyed sitting on the terrace in the lovely Milan sunshine. The hotel is spacious and has a feel good ambience. Restaurant menu sounded great but we only sampled a late night chocolate soufflé with cappuccinos because we preferred to eat out on this occasion. A great romantic getaway. Great value for this quality. Highly Recommended.

    « Ideal for a city break with family »

    We stayed for 4 nights on this our first visit to Milan. After searching through what seemed like tens of hotels, we finally opted for Hotel Galles for three main reasons: 1. Family rooms (2+2 arrangement) 2. Good location 3. Restaurant, bar and pool facilities A number of the more expensive hotels we considered did not have the above combination so, even though we usually opt for more luxurious accommodation, this seemed to suit us well. Whilst dated in parts and lacking some finesse, the hotel was comfortable, clean and situated well for a family wanting to get out each day and explore the city. The staff were all helpful and very accommodating at all times. Our family room (425) was clean and had everything we needed including tea and coffee facilities (although the milk was a rather awful powder substitute which was disappointing). The room lacked any air conditioning and had a very basic and rather useless temperature control which meant our room was permanently far too hot. The real bonus of this room is the large terrace / balcony which overlooks the inner courtyard of the hotel. Whilst not at all private, it does make for an excellent outdoor space, especially for the children - the table and chairs ideal for them to sit at and eat, drink or do drawing, etc. It seemed only two rooms offered such outdoor space. The pool is small but fine for a dip and splash around with children. They particularly liked the three big water jets which can be switched on at the push of a button and make for a bit of fun. For adults there is a perfectly adequate sauna and steam room also. Again, we found all these facilities to be clean and in good working order. Breakfast was a classic European buffet and the choice was good and food / drink quality was average. The Terrace restaurant did open until 19.00 each night so we used the American Bar's menu for some light bites as it served food from 17.00. We were able to take the food to eat it in our room which worked well and was particularly useful to avoid the children having to stay up very late. For a no-frills, comfortable stay, it was fine. We should add that we were blessed with pretty good weather so we walked everywhere with ease. However, the hotel is situated right next to a Metro station making it very easy to travel around using public transport if needed.

    We spent one night in this hotel. It is a business like hotel. Not the poshest area of the city nevertheless we can't fault the facilities and it was clean and comfortable. The major issue is the tube passing underneath regularly and we could feel the room vibrating every time. Although I'm a light sleeper I did manage to sleep. It is also very close to a tube station. Worth it if you get a good bargain.

    We spent a night at this hotel, which is conveniently located near an underground station along one of the main shopping streets of Milan. The city centre itself is about 20-25 minutes away on foot, while the main railway station is about 10 minutes. The room was well equipped and the bathroom clean. Maybe the room was a bit dark, but we didn't mind. Breakfast was pretty good and you can enjoy a nice view from the terrace where it is served. The staff at the reception were very kind. We got a special offer online so the price was more than reasonable. I'd say that it is a good option if you want to stay in Milan.

    Hotel Galles is conveniently located just outside of Metro station Lima. From Linate airport if you travel on the express bus, the Hotel is within walking distance from the point where the bus terminates (San Babila). If arriving by taxi, the journey took about 25 minutes. The staff was welcoming and helpful with recommendations for restaurants nearby, there are several to choose from. The room was spacious with a large double bed. The bedding was comfortable and I had no trouble with sleep. There is a restaurant on the top floor and a bar on the ground floor. The food in the restaurant is pricey and of average quality. The bar serves free nibbles with drinks - peanuts, crisps, cheese, etc. Will choose to stay here again.

    « Wonderful hotel for location and value. Amazing buffet breakfast! »

    We stayed in a ?Standard Double' room and it ticked all the boxes for being very clean, quiet, having a good amount of floor space with a very a comfortable bed and pillows. Large windows opened up over the street to take in local life and the vibrant cafe culture below. The room featured complimentary tea and coffee making facilities, a mini bar, LCD TV, in room safe and a decent sized closet. The bathroom was large, clean and accommodated two adults with ease. The shower water pressure was great! In room WIFI was free and had a consistent, strong signal. While we didn't use the hotel restaurant due to so many great options right on our door step, the included daily buffet breakfast was the best we have had in Europe. A vast array of tasty hot food, pastries, cereals, toasts, muffins,cold meats, cheeses, spreads and sweets made for an overwhelming breakfast experience. The self serve coffee and tea machines are easy to use and produce great hot drinks. Hot chocolate and fresh juices are also available. Use the Lima underground right outside the hotel to quickly and easily get to the Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele ? 4 stops and a 10 minute ride. The staff are friendly and helpful without being in your face and the hotel's proximity to local landmarks, transport, shopping and dining can't be beaten.

    « cute hotel »

    This is a lovely hotel, very near the centre of the city. it appears to be a small hotel when first walk in as it feels very cosy. However it is large with lovely bedrooms, with a free spa, and swimming pool (even if it is quite small). The staff on reception, restaurant and the bar were all very friendly and helpful and spoke good English. Fantastic breakfast. It was great to be able to leave luggage for free in the hotel on last day until our departure in the evening. Check out of the room was 12.00, such a bonus if you don't want to get up early. The only downside was that the bar closed early and did not even stay open for the length of time reception said it would.

    « Water damage, change to poorer room, no apology - no refund »

    During our stay there was a water damage above and water leaked to our room. We had to change our room of course, but we get a really small and horrible smelling smoking room (we had booked and paid for bigger non-smoking room). Staff said that the hotel is almost fully booked and they have available only this small room and suite, but they can't give us the suite! Oh yes, they really told that. On morning we asked that could the hotel compensate us that we got a cheaper room that we paid for, but the receptionist (Francesco) said that it's not possible and didn't even apologize. So it looks like that for this hotel it's ok to charge customers for better room than they get.

    Hotel was clean and very friendly, receptionist noted it was my Birthday and ensured we had a good room. On my Birthday I received a gift from hotel and two free drinks. Staff were very friendly. Facilities were good with sauna area kept clean and pool was very clean. Breakfast area was situated on top floor with excellent views and good choice of food.

    Wow. Nice room, everything worked, large size since we stayed in family suite. Locati N is superb. Right at the metro entrance Lima station, 5 min to Duomo by subway, on one of the major shopping street with any kind of shops imaginable. Will stay again if back to Milan.

    « Hotel Galles Dec 2015 - Jan 2016 »

    The hotel is situated in a lively area just outside the metro station which is excellent for transport to the main attractions and stations. The room was as seen in all photos however the shower cubicle was slightly small for my liking. Besides that the hotel was very good, the breakfast selection was also good. The spa area also relaxes you at the end of a long day. The staff are very helpful. I must mention KITH LANDICHO who was an excellent contact for the hotel. I telephoned the hotel requesting places to eat and events during the New Year's Eve and new year period and Kith kept in constant contact with all the events and restaurants. He was also there to advise on the attractions of Milan and the best way for transportation for the places we went for days outside of Milan. Whilst he is given the job of a concierge he should definitely be in a higher position since he made our trip much more organised than it would have. Kiran Patel

    « Perfect! »

    The hotel was very close to Milano Centrale Train Station (5-7 min on foot) and also there is a Metro stop (Lima) next to the hotel entrance. Very good location (Corso Buenos Aires - the heart of Milan for shopping). There are plenty of restaurants and cafeterias in the area. Also, you can use the Metro to go to the centre (Duomo - only 4 stops) or in any other place. The hotel is exactly as it seems in the photos. Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are perfect (big, shiny and very clean). The breakfast was PERFECT! A very big variety of hot and cold dishes. They even prepared us for free an early breakfast box to take with us to the airport!!! Strongly recommended!

    Could not get the family suite for three nights (Dec 28 -30) on hotels.com so called hotel directly and the staff were great in arranging this over the phone. Both Roberta and Marco were very helpful. Also gave me the same low rate including breakfast. Hotel is 5 minutes from Central train station and 20 minutes from Garibaldi train station. Shopping convenient nearby on Corsa Buenos Aires and metro station right outside hotel. Hotel has small indoor pool and sauna. Breakfast was excellent with hot and cold food but it closes precisely at 10:30 and things are immediately removed. Family suite accomodated 2 adults and 3 kids very well. Staff was all polite and helpful. One hiccup- at check out I advised we were 5 people and five large bags needing a taxi to the train station. We got a minivan that could not accomodate us and had to wait for a second larger van. Also, the morning crush on the elevator could not afford the bellman the ability to take our bags down. I think the luggage lift may have been out of service. Advise moving out 30 minutes earlier in the morning to get out on time. I highly recommend this hotel.

    « Shopping hotel in Milan »

    An average hotel right on the main shopping street in Milan. Bedrooms are rather small and quirky. Has a nice restaurant at the top of the hotel with views across the area, Food was good if a limited selection. Plus points are metro outside the door and right in the middle of the Corso Buenos Aries shopping area. Negative points are the hotel is a fair walk to the tourist attractions around the cathedral area, 20 minutes plus, though metro will get you there much quicker. Service was good but hotel was let down by the small bedrooms.

    « Excellent hotel all-round »

    I stayed at the Best Western Hotel Galles for 4 nights over the new year period & I would definitely stay there again. The rooms are extremely clean & the hotel is very central. You can walk to most of the main attractions (about 30 minutes to the Duomo) or you are literally steps away from the Lima metro station. The free breakfast is fantastic & you can select from eggs & sausages to meats & cheeses, cereals & pastries & more. One of it's key strengths is its staff. Every employee I encountered was pleasant, helpful & friendly. In particular, Saranga/Max was so friendly & welcoming. This is a perfect base for exploring Milan.

    « Good Rooms, views of Buenos Aires corso and I love the SpA »

    I went there with a colleague in November. The hotel centrally located close to corso Buenos Aires offers a great view of city centre. Breakfast which also is on the top floors offers another great view of the skyline during clear days. I was happy with the room, of course it is a bit historical premises, therefore it may possible to hear the next door neighbor if he is a bit noisy or sick as it happened to my colleague. Spa represents a bit of luxury at affordable price even though only a few meters long. Staff nice and helpful.

    We have just been to the Milan Christmas Markets and decided to stay in the Galles again (second time in 3 years). The hotel was as ever inviting and the staff friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is excellent with the Metro stop being just outside. The rooms were clean and comfortable as ever and the restaurant was excellent. Plenty of choice for the breakfast from scrambled eggs and sausages to cold meats, fruit and refreshing orange juice. A very relaxing place to put your feet up after a long day shopping in Milan.

    Hello everyone, i visited best western hotel galles in august 2015 It was such a delight , clean rooms , really friendly staff ( when the receptionist knew we are lebanese she was very kind to speak to us in french :) saying that she wanted us to feel like home ), beautiful lobby , close to the city center , really close to the piazza lima metro station which help you get to the duomo of Milan and the galleria vitorio really fast , although i personally advise you to walk there just to get a glimpse of the chic , elegant and refined buildings,city, and streets of Milan.

    We booked the junior suite as there were 4 of us. Stayed at room 325 on 3rd level. No train noise and we slept soundly through the night. There's a king size bed and 2 single beds. 2 TVs and safe box. Room is very clean and has a balcony. Bed is most comfortable. Big bathroom with 2 basins and rain shower that had nice and strong water pressure. Hotel is situated along Corso Buenos Aires, very good for shopping. Very convenient as the metro is right outside the hotel. Milan Duomo and Corso Vittoria Emanuelle II the famous shopping area are only 4 stations away. Excellent service from hotel staff too. Wide variety for breakfast spread and we so love the cappuccino. As we wanted to leave early to Malpensa airport which was before breakfast time, the hotel prepared packed breakfast for us. Cost from Galles hotel to airport is 120€ for a minivan as we had many luggages. Duration is about 45 mins. For those who are looking for halal food, there is Halal Turkish kebab cafe at 60, Corso Buenos Aires about less than 100 m away.

    « Very nice hotel & very close to the city center »

    The hotel is located at the heart of Milan, on the famous corso Buenos Aires. To go to the Duomo you only have to take the metro from the Lima station just outside the hotel and in 3 stops you will reach it. The hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly and very helpful at all times. The breakfast is excellent and full and the swimming pool/spa area basic but clean. On the down side is the little noise from the cars/metro and the outdated/overused furniture. Overall is a very good hotel if you plan to go for shoping close and walk the city!

    « Outstanding »

    Our two nights were outstanding and I do not say that lightly. From the moment we arrived by subway we were very pleased. The subway tunnel system has an entrance within 100 feet of the front door. The entire hotel is all polished marble floors with accent lighting everywhere. The staff all speak English. The guest restrooms have L'Occitane hand soap from France. Friday night has a happy hour with nice snacks at the "Americana" bar. The basement has a wonderful included spa with a gym, hot tub pool, sauna and changing rooms. What a treat for sure and so pleasant. Our suite was one of the biggest on the 5th floor with a Queen and a full inside with a Greek shower that was so nice that each of us made silly noises as we took turns indulging in this simple pleasure. The amenities and accent lighting was a nice touch. The TV was large with a good selection of English channels with a game system available upon request. Did I mention our minibar was included each day, I am not sure I have seen this service in many years and it was nice to have it stocked each day. Breakfast was included and more than satisfactory with many choices that were tasty and in a fun buffet style without cook to order eggs however but eggs were available on the line as scrambled. Coffee and juice were also commentary. Go to the roof with your last cappuccino and look for the cathedral and you will smile. This hotel was one of the best hotel experiences in my memory, I wish I had 1 more day and would enjoy returning, I highly recommend staying here on the 5th floor.

    « Not the cheapest, but nice; cool rooftop terrace »

    This hotel cost about double, per night, what I paid for other similar star level hotels in Rome and Naples. But the front desk staff were very helpful and the breakfast was very extensive (for European standards). Room was clean, location is good. An added advantage was the rooftop terrace where you could see the Alps from the hotel. We could also see the Duomo from the hotel. Nice views.

    Courteous and professional staff. Rooms are comfortable and fairly modern. Comfortable bedding. Self laundry facility is a major plus. Location of the hotel is prime and in the heart of a shopping area: Corso Bueno Aires. Very close parking facility in case you arrive with your car rental. Breakfast is very extensive in terms of variety and leans towards an American breakfast. Upon pulling my car out of the parking structure, I found a thank you letter and water bottle on the car shield compliment of the hotel. A few steps away from Lima metro station. Would surely reconsider this hotel.

    « Special trip to Milan »

    Booked the hotel as a surprise break for my hubby's 60th birthday. Had a fantastic time. The hotel is centrally located and right by the metro to get you around Milan. The rooms are a little small but are decorated nicely. Our room had a little balcony that looked out onto Corso Buenos Aires, on an evening we could sit out and watch the world go by. Stefano, the hotel manager was very helpful before our arrival, helping to sort out a surprise bottle of bubbly for when we arrived. The staff behind reception were really helpful and were able to answer our queries about Milan and places to visit. Breakfast was fine, very much on the continental style, plenty of choice for cereals, cheeses and meats, pastries and fruits and yoghurt. If you are looking to book this hotel, asked for a room on the 3 rd floor or above, as you will hear the rumble of the metro on the lower floors. I would book this hotel again, if we were to visit Milan again. We had a lovely break and enjoyed having time as a couple again.

    « Dont choose this hotel »

    I was very dissappointed staying in this hotel for several days in october. I really didn't like the way guys on the reception were working. Smiling very unplesantly, just because they have to smile. And saying they are trying their best, but in fact these were just words. I had problems to check-in, girls on reception couldnt understand what I need (i guess cause of their bad english or smth), like they are 1st day at work. I had to wait more than 40 minutes and not because there were a lot of people. Just because guys work like this. And then they promised they would change the room, but in 1 hour they said that they DIDN'T TELL this and not going to change anything. You think I'm insan and don't remember what other people say?? And the cleaning of the room was bad enough. And the rooms themselfs looks very very old and unplesant, not like in the pictures. it's really dissappointing when your vacation is spoiled with bad attitude of stuff. I wish I wouldn't choose this hotel.

    We stayed two nights at this hotel. Our room was on the 5th floor and it was fine. We had early breakfast both days and it was also very nice. Both days, we were out early, busy Milan, and what we really appreciated was the convenience of the location. Just outside the door is the Metro which is great to see the city and get around very easily. The Hotel is on the busiest shopping street in Milan, so it is near everything. Metro or walking the Duomo and all that is not far. Room was clean, bathroom modern the way we all like, the room was a combination of modern and traditional, and I have no complaints. I guess we were lucky to have our room higher up.

    « Location works well! »

    Best things about the hotel for us...location right on a main shopping strip: metro literally at the front door: super helpful staff: good breakfast selection Not so good things...a 'double room' had the smallest bed I've ever seen..def not a double and more like a large king single; 5 floors up you still heard the train underground (both ok for us but 'buyer beware'). Despite being 'Best Western', which conjures up cheap hotel chain to me, the decor was very nice. We'd stay again with a bigger room and no lower than 5th floor. Ps..about a half hour walk to the Duomo or two-three metro stops.

    « Don't stay on the 1st floor »

    The hotel was placed in a great position close to shops and the Hop on Hop Off bus was close by. The only bad thing was the Metro running right under our room starting at 6.00am and finishing at 1.00pm the next day.We thought was were getting a good deal using one of the many on-line booking agencies but if the price is too good it means you are on the first floor don't take it.

    « Metro noise unbearable »

    We stayed 3 nights (well actually 2 nights as the pre-paid hotel had given our 3 rooms away). After a long 2 flights from Vancouver, Canada, we 3 couples arrived around 9 PM to find that there was "no room at the Inn". We had to be taxied to another HI about 10 minutes away. In the morning, we were taxied back. Although the Metro was extremely convenient- right below us - we were on the 2nd floor and the train noise was unbearable. A Metro train came in each direction every 6 minutes and we could hear it enter the station and leave the station - i.e. a noise every 90 seconds on average. I shook the room until 1 AM when it stops running. Recommend avoiding this hotel, although other amenities quite nice.

Our room was on the 6th floor just off the elevator and down the hall from the Dining Room, where breakfast was served very early. We could hear everyone coming and going!

    « Fantastic hotel in a great convenient location »

    We stayed here twice in two different rooms whist we were in Milan. The hotel is located right next to the Lima metro stop and is right on the corso buenos aires which has a lot of shop that leads all the way to the gold triangle of shops. Checkin was a bit slow and took a while to get going even when queuing in the priority line as we had booked a Junior suite. If you want to use the laundry room (which is included if you book a suite) on level one you will need to tell them at check in so they can activate your card for the laundry room. Our first room was the Giuseppe Verdi junior suite (231) is quite spacious with a separate sitting room which was converted to a bedroom for our son. It was nice to have a bigger table and a kitchen sink, microwave, fridge. Finding the room can be a journey as the building has a maze of corridors. Each room in our suite has its own air conditioning controls which came in handy. room 231 was a single room junior suite. It faces the street entrance to the hotel and has roller shutters to block out the noise and light. Our second visit was in Room 560 which has a balcony that looks out onto the back with other apartments. It appears that they have different classes of junior suite and the bigger ones are given to longer stays and on a first come first serve basis. Although the room is smaller it is still very nice. Use of the washing machines and dryers is free, you just have to bring your own powder or get some from reception. Note though that the machines are not very powerful. It took numerous trips to the laundry to check. All up we spent 4 to 5 hours in the evening doing it. The washing machines takes a few minutes to get going ( we called for help and a gentleman came in to help - service was prompt. The swimming pool is about 10 metres long and about 1 m deep. It was a nice to have a bit of a swim, sit in the sauna. One end of the pool is a big jacuzzi. They also have a few different types of showers to try. Booking direct with the hotel has the extra perk of having the mini bar included (soft drinks and snacks). These were all replenished each day if they are consumed. As we had a tour that starts at 7 (and breakfast starts at 7, we were able to get a packed breakfast before the tour). Taxi to the Milan info centres 12 early in the morning. Breakfast has a nice spread of cold mets, pastries, juices, jams, bacon, scrambled eggs teas and a few coffee machines. The receptionist during the evening shift (Maria) was friendly and remembered our names, even when we returned to the hotel for our second stay 4 days later. The usb sockets above the bedside tables were a nice touch and handy for charging phones in room 231. Room tip - avoid rooms on the sixth floor as this is where the restaurant is and the rooms are clustered around the lifts. Make sure to go up onto the terraces on level 7 for great views of Milan. Over all the hotel offers great value for money and is conveniently located on the M1 line.
