Historical Traveller Reviews of Principe Di Savoia Hotel

Gloriously Over the Top!

from tanseaway
Visited Milan during April 2006 for the Salone del Mobile. Every hotel in town was jam-packed solid - it was through a bit of good fortune that we got a room anywhere. The hotel itself is located about 10 minutes' walk from Milan's famed Quadrilatero, where the boutiques are concentrated. There is a subway station right next to the hotel too. The interior is classic Italian - the rooms are luxurious and in no way understated. Despite its classical facade, the rooms are equipped with all the modern amenities and facilities of a top 5-star hotel.

All the staff speak English at least reasonably well. In particular, the front desk staff speak excellent English - they are some of the friendliest and most courteous members of the hotel industry I have ever encountered. Needless to say, service standards throughout the hotel were impeccable. The cliche of courtly old-world service never seemed so apt - but with a refreshing lack of pretension!

LUXURY but a scene

from maddeline
I stayed at this hotel a few times in the last 2 years, and it has improved greatly.
However, if you are looking for a relaxing time, this might not be the place. The hotel lobby bar is packed with dates, singles and intoxicated clients EVERY night.
I have even come across some dates, that look like they have been paid for..
The rooms are nice, large and clean- and the gym is one of the best, as is the indoor pool.

Wonderful staff!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed in a deluxe double at the Principe in June 2006. The room was wonderfully spacious, as was the bathroom decked in Italian marble. For me, though, the staff were what made the hotel. We felt exceptionally welcome from the very moment we arrived - indeed, they had even worked out our names before we reached the desk (as we had two young children, both requiring cots, and they'd put two and two together before I even gave my name!). They really fussed over the kids whenever we ventured into communal areas of the hotel... the Italians are baby mad!! :)

I loved the gym and pool on the top floor. Room service was quick and efficient. Breakfast in the new Acanto restaurant was a treat, if a little steep. Would definitely recommend. If you'd like to see more info (further pictures and text) then you'll find a fuller review on my blog (aluxurytravelblog.com).

Grandeur in an Italianate setting

from LeighBCD
A wonderful old hotel. The rooms are enormous with all amenities. My overriding memory of the public areas of the hotel are "GOLD" - it feels like living in a palace! The bar has a stunning stained glass ceiling. Service was extremely efficient. If you have cash to spare and want to stay somewhere grand, then this is the hotel for you.

Fabulous...and great! :)

from traveller55555
I have been in very many 5 star hotels around the world and Principe di Savoia is definately one of the best! Excellent service and the double deluxe room was sooooooo beautiful, big and bright. Also the bathroom was wonderful. The lobby area and piano bar was tasteful and really grand.
I also had dinner in hotel´s brand new restaurant, which had excellent food and service. So everything was really fantastic.
The only minus is location - it is a little bit far from city centre, but fortunately hotel has a complimentary limousine service (to the city centre) and taxi costs 8 euros to centre.

Too posh for this girl......!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Principe Di Savoia at the beginning of May. As it was weekend break by myself, I choose to stay in a well known hotel and I'd checked Tripadvisor and overall the feedback had been quite positive.

The room cost 330euro's per night, slightly expensive I know, however it was was part of the 'free weekend upgrade package', however when I arrived at the hotel, this option was not available. Actually check in was probably the most disappointing service by the hotel, the staff seem to be unsure of what they were doing, taking over 10 minutes to check me in, with no explanation and it turned out the reason for the delay is they were trying to book me in using the previous occupant credit card, a good start!!

My room was a good size, double bed, simple bedding (sheets/ blanket), lots of lamps, minibar and snacks (typical 5* prices e.g. 8 euros for a coke) - the previous occupant had eaten the Pringles and left the packaging, so I just told Reception, whom dealt with the issue. TV was huge and they had a good selection of channels, including a few Enlglish ones, you can also buy films in English. I tried to use the internet in my room, so I could check in for my flight, however 'pop up's' don't work on the TV, so I had to go to the Business centre, where it cost 8euro's for 15 minutes - it really should be free, if you think of the cost of the room.

The bathroom was huge in comparision to the main room, the shower was part of the bath, so you had the typical shower curtain issue, luckily the bathroom floor was marble tiled, so easy to wipe up the usual flood.....The hotel supplies bathrobes, plenty of towels (luckily!), slippers, good sized toliteries and associated accesories. I tried to charm the hotel into allowing me to have the use of an iron, however no joy, so I had to pay 15 euro's for a skirt to be ironed, so be warned take a travel iron if you can, especially for a short holiday break.

Room Service had a good choice of food; options available from the restuarant to a more relaxed snack menu - I had the Mushroom pizza and it was yummie, I'd foolishly ordered fries, however there's no need, as the food is plentiful. Breakfast was a bit poor, my omelette was saturated in butter and my pancakes were dry (no amount of jam was going to soften them), so I'd suggest the healthy options. It was always delivered quickly and the staff were charming, they couldn't do enough for me.

The hotel location is good, you can walk to the Metro station (2 minutes), there was no-one there to help purchase tickets, so i just opted for the single journey choice. The hotel is 2 stops from the Il Dormo and the other sightseeeing. I managed to cover all my sightseeing in a day, although I cheated by using the tour bus, which was good value and lasted just over an hour. Make sure you book tickets for the La Scala, I'd left it too late when I checked on-line and the show was completely sold out

I'd pre-booked the hotel limousine collection service, as on previous visits to Italy I'd had a nightmare at the airports trying to locate taxi/trains, so I thought I'd go for the easier option - which worked, no hassle with the meeting and subsequent transfer to the hotel. It's expensive 235euro each way, so if your brave then I'd suggest using the metro/train options. Also, when I checked out of the hotel, I noticed a sign at the concierge desk, which was for 99euro's 'last minute'airport transfer deal........sometimes it pays to be not so efficent and a little bit more 'last minute'!

Overall, it was a nice hotel for a weekend break, however like the previous feedback from the business traveller, something was missing, which didn't make this a fantastic hotel. I felt they catered for the more exculsive traveller and if I'd arrived in my Ferrari and Hermes scarf, I'd have been given a true 'VIP' service, instead of the rather average service I received.

I feel slightly disappointed owing to the cost and with the hotel been part of the Dorchester Group, I just expected more.

Fabulous...just not great

from A TripAdvisor Member
It's hard to put a finger on what exactly was wrong with my 4 days at this hotel in Feb/March for business.

The Principe is part of the Dorchester Group, so you would expect it to be certain standard.

The price was €330 for two single beds pushed together (the European double bed!), single occpancy which wasn't too expensive for a 5* in Milan. I stayed in a corner room on the 5th Floor with a view of the streets at the back of the hotel. The hotel was located around 10-15 minutes walk from stationae centrale and 2 minutes from Republica - line 3 metro station so getting round was simple.

The room was large by European standards although the aircon was fairly unsophisticated and didn't work that well. It's well appointed with pleanty of lights, power points and you could actually bring down outside shutters for the windows from the bedside. There was internet which was around €25 for 24 hours and no water or refreshments. There was a minibar which had lots of beverages but at a price.

If you want to avoid paying for water, then what you can do is goto Club 10 which is the health club ad take the water from the fridge in there. I found this out after a workout on the last day. It does boggle me when hotels don't offer bottled water free, but there you go.

Paying for an internet is such an antiquated notion that hopefully this will change in the future.

The linen consisted of sheets and blankets which were not of the standard I would expect in a 5*. Who uses blankets these days anyway?

The best thing for me was the bathroom which had robes, slippers (which were actually mansize for a change) and Acqua Di Parma toiletries. Also good was a small trolley conntining nail file, showercap, shoe shine, sewing kit and loofah. There wa 2* of each of these.

Also be aware that Italian Hotels do not provide iron or ironing boards and this cost me €50 for 4 shirts to be ironed.

I think if you are a high roller with a penchant for furs you will enjoy this hotel.

Personally I will investigate smaller boutique hotels or maybe the Westin which is opposite Savoire next tie I stay in Milan.

s most outstanding Hotel and the Best in Milan!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have stayed here with my family few times and and I can only say that this is the most exclusive and luxurious hotel in Milan. Grand entrance and elegant public areas and rooms, have made this outstanding hotel a Milanese Landmark. Our Suite or Deluxe rooms on different occasions, were furnished in elegant 19th century lombard style, with rifined woodwork and wall coveted with silk and linen. There are also rooms decorated in English style but we prefer the Lombard style rooms. The hotel's Ristorante Galleria is the perfect setting for impeccable Italian and regional cuisine. Excellent restuarant! The bar Giardino d'Inverno has a spectacular glass cupola and a baroque flavour of variegated marble, crystal chandeliers and exquisite fabrics. This is a favoutite among Milan's prominent personalities. A drink here is a must!

Luxurious

from A TripAdvisor Member
Great. Luxurious*. Best on an expense account.

(*e.g. Acqua di Palma bathroom essentials)

The Best in Milan

from greece4ever
We stayed at the Pricnipe this July for only one night-unfortunately-. We got a bargain rate for a Junior Suite and we were a bit concerned because of some reviews here.Beside our low rate, they upgraded us on an Elegant Suite on the Principe Tower(ex. Hotel Duca di Milano) building. Our room was superb, spacious ,recently renovated with antiques,a nice bed and a full marble bathroom with bidet and wonderful Acqua Di Parma products;there was also a small room used as a change room with a closet , a safe and a minibar. The public areas were well appointed, especially the La Galleria Restaurant , the Winter Garden and the Lobby.The La Galleria restaurant was also very good, not very pricey and with nice atmosphere. The service was very good and the location was convenient with the Republicca metro stop just outside and the complimentary limo service to the city center. Overall, the Principe is one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in and the best in Milan.Definitely Reccomended.

Top Local Tips for Milan

ask your conceirge you can trust alexander in this hotel ! He simply is great at his job!

Go to the Brera This art museum has some great paintings in it and when I went there on a recent Saturday in Milan it was practically empty! I could count on one hand how many people were there. It is a great place to take your time and really look at the art and they have seating everywhere so you can sit down and take a break. Plus, the Brera district surrounding the museum has some very interesting stores.

Cimitero Monumentale - Monument Cemetary This historical cemetary is fascinating. Stroll through some of the many melodramatic funerary sculptures and mausolea of Milan's best families mostly from the 19th C. Really really cool!
