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
The hotel is very conveniently located, less than five minutes walk from Milano Centrale railway station and close to several metro lines, allowing you to access the hotel and the city with ease. From the outside the hotel is very striking at night. Inside it is very comfortable and well designed. Rooms are large and very pleasant.
The spa is well worth a visit and very relaxing. We were a bit surprised at the bar prices, €26 for two spirits and two mixers, however, the measures for spirits were very generous. We spent five nights at the hotel and would definitely return.
Beautiful hotel close to the central train station. Although a bit far from attractions if you are sightseeing a d want to walk.I was attracted to this hotel from the photos of the bedroom and boy it did impress.My only feedback is I found the beds quite hard (no mattress topper like.osf hotels now) and the upper mattress was two singles to make a king - I was told by reception all the beds were the same. And there weren't any spare pillows in the room, so only the two pillows on the bed (and the 2 decorative pillows which I didnt use). In saying this I didnt ask for more pillows. I really liked the scent of the shower gel too!
I stayed at LaGare for two nights and it was as great of an experience as it had been in 2017. The rooms are very stylish and comfortable, as well as providing an ideal location with a 10-minute walk to Centrale. I have already made my reservations for 2019.
Good location, clean, renovated and modern hotel. We visited this hotel already not the first time and for the time being never disapointed. Friendly staff. Walk to Doumo takes about 20-25 minutes depending on the route chosen.
We stayed here twice on a tour in October. Our first room was a handicapped room so we moved to a regular room the second day. Returning to Milan we were again placed In a handicapped room. The handicapped bathrooms were large with showers with a curtain only. No water on the floor after but no place at all in either bathroom to put anything as no counters or shelves. The regular room was on the tenth floor with a great view. Too many wall switches so very confusing to turn out lights. Great storage, A/C was quiet, comfortable beds. Two blocks from central train station and a few restaurants, and banks nearby. Great food.Rooftop bar has great view butis busy with young locals on weekends.
