Art Hotel Navigli Milan

This is the hotel one would term a neighborhood gem.  Located steps from a canal lined with charming neighborhood restaurants and cute shops, the Art Hotel offers a great place to rest in the middle of the bustling city of Milan. The decor is hip and modern with an arty edge.  The rooms are clean and neat. The bathroom and showers a bit smaller than what a typical American is used to, but they are efficient.  A hearty breakfast offering with expertly prepared cappuccino kept us fully fueled until mid-afternoon.

At first I was a bit disappointed upon entering the hotel.  We stayed in a double room and the two beds side by side seemed smaller than twin sized beds.  They were not very comfortable, nor were the pillows.  You are unable to control the air condition as it is done centrally.  After staying there for 3 nights, it got better.  The service was awesome and the breakfast was wonderful.  The location in the Brera district was superb and it was within walking distance to the metro station and several bars and restaurants.

Perfect location, interesting art gallery feel to the hotel, and tasty breakfast service. Room itself was okay, bathroom was really tiny and poorly designed making it a challenge to use to get ready (and I get us BT gals are high maintenance so the average traveler probably will not be bothered by the cramped bathroom vanity area.) The design was dated. Thought the art gallery look was interesting, but it needed to be better curated.   Service was courteous and the place was overall clean. The location more than made up for the lack in design. Such an amazing location – so close to metro and within walking distance of interesting destinations – and the neighborhood had an energy about it and a local authenticity to it. And like the hotel in Venice – avoided the annoying mobs of tourists.   Carmen Natschke – The Decorating Diva

The public spaces are certainly more current than the dated but large bedrooms. The room size is unusual for Europe but the beds lack plushness and the pillows are flat. A renovation could bring this tired hotel to life.  The staff was friendly and willing to help and recommend local attractions and restaurants. The breakfast was ample and delicious. The area is a bustling hotspot right on the canals. The neighborhood is full of great restaurants and bars.  Holly Phillips – The Englishroom
