1. B&B Too Cute 2b Str8 3* – Gay Friendly Hotels Milan

 

The Too Cute 2b Str8 is an elegant B&B in Milan, 300 m from Lambrate Station. It offers free WiFi, private parking, and a large living room with sofas and tables. An Italian-style breakfast is offered daily.

With wooden furnishings and parquet floors, each room includes air conditioning, a flat-screen TV and work desk. Some rooms are en suite while others share a bathroom.

B&B Too Cute 2b Str8 is a 10-minute walk from Milan’s Politecnico University. You can reach the historical centre and Milan Cathedral by Tram 19, stopping right by the property.

It is very handily located, within easy travelling distance of city centre There is a tram stop opposite and the Lambrate rail station and Metro (it is just four stops to the central station) are just a few minutes walk away
There are a few restaurants and cafes nearby and a Lidl just around the corner.

We stayed here for two nights in a double room with a private bathroom. The room was very spacious and we actually had two big balconies! It was very nice to chill on the sun loungers after a long day of sightseeing and walking around town.

The room itself and the whole establishment was clean, comfortable and stylish. All the members of the staff were very helpful and we enjoyed the quiet location. It’s very easy to get from the BB to the city center, it takes about 25 min.

Too cute is a stylish, well appointed and comfortable B&B located conveniently close to the no 23 tram which runs directly to the heart of Milan. The neighborhood is close to the university precinct and is a more chilled accommodation option and a real contrast to staying in the city centre.

Run expertly and efficiently by Alessandro, there was nothing we needed that wasn’t available. We recommend a meal at Sole restaurant only a short walk away – beautiful food in a modern Italian style and a great restaurant host.

If you want to be close enough to the action in Milan but don’t want to be in it … and pay the premium too then we can highly recommend Alessandro’s place.

Typically stylish with a tasty breakfast and best service I’ve experienced in a long time.
We had the suite on the top floor with two terraces – superb!
Also very handy with the tram stopping just across the street which takes you directly into the centre.

2. Uptown Palace Milan 4* – Gay Friendly Hotels Milan

 

Gay Friendly Hotels Milan
Gay Friendly Hotels Milan

Uptown Palace is a contemporary hotel with a restaurant and high-tech conference centre located a 5-minute walk from Milan’s Missori Metro Stop. It features soundproofed rooms with flat-screen TV and free WiFi throughout.

Air-conditioned accommodation has a private bathroom with soft bathrobes plus slippers. Junior suites come with a living area. Boasting views on Milan Cathedral from their balcony, suites have a separate living room.

A breakfast buffet is served daily, including fresh fruit, pastries, and cappuccino.

The Uptown Palace is a 4-star superior business hotel in Milan. It is modern and elegant and situated a short walk from the Missori metro stop (yellow line), from Piazza Duomo and from Milan’s famous shopping streets.

The carefully chosen and highly qualified multilingual staff guarantee high levels of service and care for every guest. The Uptown Palace has 165 fully soundproofed rooms. Floors in the rooms are parquet or carpet while those in the public areas are marble. Each room has LCD televisions and en suite bathrooms with shower or bathtub, together with fluffy robes, slippers, hairdryers and a stylish selection of toiletries.

The Presidential Suite and four of the Executive suites have an atmospheric view of the Duomo and of the rooftops of busy Milan. Uptown Palace offers its guests a destination par excellence where every dream can come true.

Location – keep in mind the location is by no mean central, however it is within walking distance to the duomo or Porta ticinese (10-12m), the Missori metro station is about 7minutes away (M3 line)

Carrefour express as well as few coffee shops and restaurants are within 2-5 minutes walk from the hotel.

Overall it is a very positive experience and if you accept being slightly off the hustle and bustle of the Duomo area you will have a pleasant surprise awaiting at the Uptown Palace.

The location is reasonable – it is about a 10 minute walk to the Duomo or Vittorio Emanuele. Taxi from the train station is about 15 minutes and 15 Euro. You can ask them to arrange a taxi to the airport which takes about 45 minutes and they will charge 100E to your bill. Brera is a 20 minute walk. One day we walked in a random direction and quickly found ourselves in a lovely residential neighborhood with local shops.

Our stay included breakfast which is on the 3rd floor and very nice with cloth tablecloths and napkins. Staff immediately removes used plates with smiles on their faces, and are happy to bring you your capuchino or tea (no extra charge as in some hotels).

There is a nice large lobby area where you can sit at the end of a long day if you don’t want to be cooped up in your room.

This was the only hotel on our trip to Italy that had a variety of English language TV stations, including BBC world news and CNN. However, the Internet connectivity is not very good – the WiFi signal is strong both in the room and in the lobby, but the connectivity frequently drops.

Overall our stay at Uptown Palace was very pleasant. The hotel decor is nice with a luxurious feel, although I can see in some of the details why it isn’t rated 5 star.

The rooms are very small, we were told we were upgraded upon check in to a ‘superior room’ although the size of this room was smaller than most regular rooms I have stayed in. Nevertheless the decor was nice and the bathroom was a nice touch with large shower and double sinks.

We had a deluxe room on the 11th floor with a great view. I would recommend going high as the street level is noisy and at the time of our visit there were roadworks outside too. You also get the possibility of a fantastic view on a clear day.

Our room was spacious as was the bathroom with two hand basins. The large bed was comfortable and we had some of the best nights’ sleep for a long time there. The room was quiet (the hotel website mentions sound proofing). There was free wifi but the speed was appalling (disappointingly the hotel wanted €9 per night for faster wifi which I would have needed if there on business).

If you get a chance take the train out to bellagio, you get. A ferry to various islands which you can get on & off it takes a few hours but it’s worth it. The view are incredible & bellagio is just beautiful it was our favourite part of the trip.

This hotel was a great find, in a fantastic location & was reasonably priced for a bank holiday weekend. Definitely worth staying here.

Offering free soft drinks in the minibar, rooms at the Berna Hotel also come with a safe, telephone with voicemail, and a fully equipped bathroom. Most rooms are located in the main building, while a few are in the Berna Tower annex, which has a 3-star rating.

The Berna Hotel serves a large, continental breakfast buffet including fresh fruit, pastries and a selection of teas and coffees. Special diet foods are also available on request.

If you intend to stay in Milan for work or pleasure, the Hotel Berna is clearly your preferred choice. The Central Station, the subway, the shuttle terminals for the airports are at 200 m from the Hotel. The hotel services include 116 rooms, an underground parking space, meeting rooms and more… First of all, our welcoming smile. However, the smiles after will be many: when we welcome you and during your stay.

And there will also be your smiles when you discover our qualities, the cuddles that we have reserved for you and the surprises prepared just for you. From the breakfast to the cleaning, from the choice of the room temperature to the silence. In the heart of Milano you will discover the atmosphere of one of your second homes.

Excellent location just 4 minutes from the Central Train Station making it accessible to everywhere. The staff were very helpful and efficient, making recommendation to a lovely restaurant nearby.

The room was comfortable, the bathroom was more spacious than expected, and there was no exterior noise from the street. It was a nice touch to have a small refrigerator filled with water, juice, and soda available. The room also had a hairdryer and basic bath amenities.

The room temperature was controlled in the room and easy to set — plenty of lighting in the room as well as hang-up wardrobe space.

Found staff members to be exceedingly helpful. I highly recommend the hotel and believe it is an excellent value for the room and services received.

Location: This hotel was so near the milano centrale station. As this was the reason we booked here, it was a 5-10 minutes walk. The area were mostly occupied by hotels and restaurants & gay bars.

Staff is the best, they have the best customer service that I’ve ever experienced, you can customize your room before your arrival and if you are going to leave the hotel before breakfast, they can give you a great breakfast box to go. Rooms are very clean, and everything in the room is perfect. Inside the hotel you have coffee, tea, and bread for free, if you need a taxi they can get it for you!

Breakfast was beautifully prepared and available til late morning. The location was great because it was close to the train station, subway, taxis, bus, and there were many cafes and bars in the area. The area in general was calm at night and it was a treat to return to Hotel Berna after a busy day of sightseeing.

The front desk was staffed around the clock and there were several computers available in the lobby area. Before arrival, the hotel contacts customers for personal room preferences. There are no small terry towels in the bath so if you are accustomed to showering with these, you may like to pack your own. To conclude, we had a very positive experience at Hotel Berna and definitely would return. It is not a luxury hotel but it it is very well appointed and managed, and excellent in its price range.

4. Château Monfort – Relais & Châteaux 5* – Gay Friendly Hotels Milan

 

Château Monfort - Relais & Châteaux
Château Monfort – Relais & Châteaux

This 5-star boutique hotel & gay friendly hotel is located in Milan’s historic centre, an 8-minute walk from Piazza San Babila and the fashion area of Via Montenapoleone. Each room offers elegant parquet floors, an LCD TV, and free Wi-Fi.

Château Monfort is set in a historic building. The rooms are themed after different fairy tales and nursery rhymes. The mix of antique details and modern facilities makes for a unique, glamorous chic style.

Restaurant Rubacuori serves classic Italian cuisine, the Mezzanotte Lounge Bar is open until late, and La Cella Di Bacco wine bar features an impressive wine list.

Château Monfort is 5 star hotel located just a few minutes walking from the City Center and the main fashion District. Its 77 rooms, with 5 Junior Suites and 5 Suites, are overwhelmed by a charming atmosphere, some retrò style details and a special glamour touch.

Château Monfort offers a new philosophy of hotellerie based on fashion, music and art and to recapture a sort of childhood fairytale. The “Rubacuori” Restaurant is an enchanted place where an ensemble of art and passion are turned into a poem by mediterranean savours. Located in the heart of our lobby area under a stunning dome ceiling, our Lounge Bar Mezzanotte plays the landlord role with charms and luxury.

The Chateau Monfort is an absolutely beautiful property. It has a fairytale, Alice in Wonderland-like style with fanciful details and pastel colors. Rooms are large with great beds and luxurious bathrooms. The common area and bar are comfortable and service fantastic. The hotel is located a 10-15 minute walk from the main shopping area and Duomo. The immediate neighborhood has fantastic local restaurants, grocery stores and coffee shops frequented by more locals than tourists.

Genuinely, a unique hotel with a service to rival any other. It’s a fabulous boutique residence, with a quirky design. If you want a ‘standard’ group hotel and room, this place is not for you. It’s original in design and perfectly comfortable. The staff are second to none and can’t do enough to help. The breakfast is a wonder – they have everything and if you really can’t find what you’re after, they pretty much will make anything for you. The location is perfect too – just a short walk from a fabulous park, the main shopping area and the Duomo.

The place is gorgeous. Large spacious rooms with wonderful apportements.
It has a spa that is free to all guests and is a place of splendour. Relaxing and rejuvenating including a dry sauna, steam room, pool, lounge area’s and a wonderful selection of teas and juices to enjoy. A perfect place to have a mid-day rest.

There was a lobby lounge/restaurant that was bright and airy with a glass cupola on the roof with amazing views.

We also ate at the restaurant in the Chateau. Every morning they had a breakfast that was the ‘be all and end all’ with food selections that were generous, broad and delicious. Fresh croissants including warm chocolate croissants. Fresh fruit including mango and dragon fruit. Fresh pairs that were delicious and juicy. Hot waffles, pancakes, eggs made any way you want them. Fresh made bread, local cheeses and local charcuterie. I could go on and on.

Dinner in this restaurant was also fantastic. The chef takes great pride in their presentation and flavour and we enjoyed a variety of local classics, including Osso Bucco done in two different ways, paired with fabulous local wines at good prices.

The superior room had a wonderful fairytale feel and after many weeks of travelling, this lightheartedness made us feel great (something different to celebrate a special occasion).

We had a Superior Room which exceeded our expectations – it was well-proportioned in size, with complimentary bottled water replenished daily, a delicious welcome cookie, good bathroom amenities and plush bathrobes/slippers. In the 38° heat, the air con was faultless and our room was beautifully cool at all times – so much so that we were still able to avail of our robes! Nice balcony overlooking Viale Piave and Piazza Del Tricolore. Not noisy at all.

Housekeeping were outstanding and it was duly noted that the lady paid exceptional attention to detail when servicing our room. Breakfast was excellent – everything from cooked to order eggs, to waffles and pancakes, antipasti, fresh bread, yoghurts, fruit and the largest selection of cakes and doughnuts I’ve seen at any breakfast buffet, anywhere! Prosecco as well, which was a real treat to start the day. Cappuccinos were perfect.

We were initially concerned about the location for sightseeing but needn’t have worried. Access to Milano Centrale Via the number 9 tram just outside the hotel (which, from there, easily connected you to airport bus/malpensa express).

The 54 bus to Duomo takes you to the Cathedral/Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in a short time also and tickets for the public transport system can even be bought from the hotel front desk for €2. Remember to validate before boarding, or on the tram/bus if appropriate. Finally, the Spa was heaven at the end of a very long day exploring Lake Como; especially given that it was open until 11pm.

5. LHP Hotel Napoleon 4* – Gay Friendly Hotels Milan

 

LHP Hotel Napoleon

The recent restyle by ARCHITETTURA & DESIGN of NAPLES definitively marked the hotel’s step up to the 4-star category, a new icon of design in Milan. The optimum blend of style and functionality make the 4-star Hotel Napoleon the perfect choice for a busy work trip or for a holiday hotel that offers a little something more. At the end of fast-paced days in the vibrant city of Milan, enjoy the relaxing ambience of our rooms, and all the attention to detail we afford each and every guest.

Hotel is centrally located, near Corso Buenos Aires with shops and restaurants. Metro stop Lima very nearby and easily to get in the city center. We used public transport very often (subway, tram, bus). Breakfast is good, a lot of choice (read other reviews, but disagree). The room is small, bathroom is small, not a lot of space to move around etc., also very warm (despite turning the heater off). Though clean room/hotel and well maintained. Inside the hotel it is warm too, but in all Milan shops they turn on the heater high.

The hotel is simple but correct, well located and inexpensive. As it’s very close to Milano Centrale and within walking distance of the lovely Quadrilatero della Moda, you can both arrive and explore the city by foot, it’s very convenient. The staff members are all so friendly and warm.

The bedroom was located on the 3rd floor, it was a double room which contained a standard size bed which was very very comfortable.The room was little small but perfect in the sense that it had enough storage through drawers, wardrobe space and bedside tables.

The bathroom was out of this world it had a space saving sliding door it contained a toilet, bidet and a massive shower that could fit more than one person 😉 there was a speaker embedded in the tiles ao that you were able to hear the television whilst in the bathroom. The floor was heated which felt amazing underfoot.

Breakfast was intimate and nice several tables that continued the black and white theme. It was a continental breakfast a buffet with coffee and tea served at the table.There was a good selection of cheeses and cold meats/ fruit/ cereal.
