Straf Design Hotel
You probably cannot get any closer to the Duomo, 54 steps or a one-minute walk (yes, we counted it). The Straf is also near the Scala and Quadrilatero della Moda (between a three to six minute walk, counted as well!). Design, design, design. If you want a cool contemporary boutique hotel with an ultra-modern clean industrial design feel, this is probably a good choice. The trendy outside street bar is a perfect venue for sampling the traditional Milanese aperitivo whilst admiring The Duomo’s lateral façade, and it is quite a popular bar with locals as well. Breakfast is good and the restaurant also serves meals along the day, including vegetarian options (they seemed to like to point that out). Rooms are unique in layout and décor, but all follow the super modern design feel the hotel offers. If you might prefer a more traditional room, ask the staff to avoid the very colorful ones. Bear in mind that rooms facing the street have a building immediately across, so it is not the type of hotel you should choose if you look for scenic views to nature or attractions. The staff was very kind and friendlier than most we found in town. Most room rates include breakfast, check when booking.
