central, reasonable hotel in Milan

I need a nice but resonable hotel in the Duomo area of Milan for August. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hotel Canada is a very basic, no frills 3-star hotel, about 5 blocks south of the duomo on Via Sofia. Fax # is 02/58300282. The website on the brochure (I stayed there 2 years ago; haven't personally checked the site since) is http://web.tin.it/hotel/canada & e-mail is [email protected]

Last September my husband and I stayed at the Casa Svizzera on Via S. Raffaele, which was a street right near the Duomo. This is a 3 star hotel and we were pleased with our room which was a good size. At the time we paid 310,000 lire (about $160.00)/night including any tax, service, and breakfast.

I'm staying at the Antica Locanda dei Mercati. It's recommended in Fodor's and is on a small pedestrian only street in the historic center of Milan. We're paying 200,000L for a standard double. I believe their E mail is [email protected] They are very quick to reply.

We stayed at Hotel Gran Duca di York several years ago and found it very comfortable and convenient. It isn't far from the Cathedral. I believe it was quite reasonably priced too.

ANTICA LOCANDA MERCANTI: Via San Tomaso 6, 2nd fl. Milano. Tel. 02-8054080. Fax: 02-8054090. E-mail: [email protected] (16 rms., all w/toilet & bath or shower.) 185,000-315,000L (95-162E) single/double; 270,000-320,000L (138-164E) triple. Small buffet breakfast (7:30-10am) at 13,500L pp including freshly squeezed o.j. is not obligatory & is served in the room. Visa, MC, AX. English spoken (Bruce or Greta), direct-dial phone, TV upon request, antique 19th-century charming hotel w/wonderfully furnished comfortable small rms. & small bathrooms, #11, 12, 13 & 14 are the most expensive rms. w/large terraces, air-conditioning & minibars, double-paned windows, central heating, elevator. All the rooms have names so the Baronessa & Agnese are the best rooms but range from 240,000-270,000L for two. For lower-price rooms, ask for the Dei Belgioso or others like it which cost about 200,000L for two. The newly re-opened renovated hotel (1997) is not family-owned but is managed by Ms. Ora Paola, Bruce (husband) & Alex (son). Fresh flowers are put into each room every day. Take Malpensa airport bus to Piazza Cairoli. I know this hotel is a little above the price points I cover but many people wrote me about this place. I decided to include it because it was such a wonderful friendly hotel and they wanted very much to be in the book. You will enjoy spending your money on your room if you are looking for a true Italian experience. Metro: Carioli. From metro stop, exit onto Via Dante, walk down Via Dante, make a left onto San Tomaso, donít look for an outside sign on the 2nd blockóthere isnít any. Just look for the large green doors on the left. Walk up the stairs to the elevator.

I also stayed at the Gran Duca Di York and thought it was a very decent place. If you stay there, ask for the room with the outdoor terrace; it adds a lot of charm to the visit. The room was comfortable, with excellent air conditioning and modern bathroom. I think a lot of businessmen stayed there. I thought it was an excellent value when I stayed there last summer-- I believe it was L.240,000/night for a double. The hotel is on a small street very near the Duomo.
