With a handy location between Milan’s two main train stations, Centrale and Garibaldi, just a 10-minute metro ride from the Duomo, the LaGare Milano is a smart hotel with an executive feel. Weekenders and business travelers are all seen to, with a relaxed work area that features plenty of desk space, a sophisticated bar and a rooftop restaurant that serves regional dishes. The muted color scheme (gray, olive, brown) is offset by decorative vases and bowls made from Venini glass. A striking Murano chandelier dominates the reception area, in homage to the property’s sister hotel on that Venetian island. The guestrooms feature giant tufted headboards, slate-gray fabrics, dark wood floors and sleek bathrooms with backlit mirrors. Kick back with a massage in the subterranean spa or head up to the rooftop terrace, from which you can see the skyscrapers of Milan’s new Porta Nuova business district, including the landmark Bosco Verticale (vertical forest), a pair of residential towers that have trees planted on all the balconies and are completely green in the summer.
In the Area
The hotel is within walking distance of the two main train stations, Centrale and Garibaldi, making it very convenient for those traveling on to Paris, Geneva or elsewhere in Italy. At night head to the Garibaldi district and pop into Eataly, an emporium of Italian products with several bars and restaurants serving delicious slow food and a program of free live musical performances. Also in the area is the destination concept store 10 Corso Como, a hub for fashionistas that includes a clothes and accessories shop, a gallery, a restaurant and a rooftop garden. The best of the city is a short metro ride from the hotel, including the 15th-century Duomo and the designer boutiques of the Quadrilatero d’Oro area.
How to Get There
All over a premium hotel.
Staff: All over very helpful and polite! Big smile and ready to solve every issue.
Room: A couple of shelves was full of dust, but they was up high - my guess is that the cleaners didn’t reach it. Beside that, the room was top notch with all you need.
The rooftop bar and restaurant is a must experience, the view is breathtaking!
While there is still some construction, the staff do a great job of making you feel welcomed and comfortable. The rooftop bar is a must. The food is delicious and the drinks are very cool. The view of the city and the mountains is fantastic after a long day shopping! I look forward to returning!
I liked the room and the hotel decor. I liked the terrace bar and the delicious breakfast. I liked the staff and the service.
It’s close to central station but not that close to the tourist area.
On the second day we got back to our room and it had not been serviced.
I don’t think that much attention has been given to the small details - repairs and updating items that look tired.
