Within walking distance of the Central Station (regional rail, metro and airport shuttles). Very helpful front desk staff to answer tour, site visit, and transportation questions. The provided breakfast was over the top good! One word of caution...our assigned room was in a building across the street from the main hotel; we had no complaints with the room we received, but if you expected to be in the main building and ended up across the street, you could be disappointed.

We had a 2 night stay with Hotel Berna. The location can't be anymore convenient, it's only a couple minutes walking distance from Milan Central Station and there is a metro right at your door step! We had a very warm welcome by the staff during check in. The room itself was quality, clean, shower was powerful. Any soft drink and snack from the fridge was free and they replenished it the next day for you. The very only downside of our room was small but we were OK with it. The overall experience was lovely and we'll be staying with Berna again if we come to Milan.

Great hotel, really welcoming and helpful staff - in fact, exceptional staff. Every single person who worked in the Hotel Berna seems to enjoy it and take pride in doing their job really well. Smiling, friendly, helpful and really engaged in providing quality service to all the guests. There are quite a few organisations that could learn a lot about customer services by staying here. I booked this hotel after looking at TA and seeing that this was such a highly rated hotel - number 6 out of 437 hotels in Milan, based on almost 3000 reviews - that is a serious recommendation. Excellent room, very quiet at the back of the hotel. Other good points were a spacious bathroom, fantastic breakfast with a choice of almost everything, access to the internet on their computers, and very close to the Central Station and the Underground, as well as within walking distance of the centre.

We were pleased to find the Hotel Berna so close to the train station, especially as we arrived around 11 p.m. The immediate area is not that appealing, but the hotel is clean, attractive, and comfortable. The bar is cozy, a good spot for a cold glass of prosecco (recommended!). Breakfast is excellent, as is the service.

Hotel Berna was a nice hotel near the train station. Unfortunately I had my cell phone stolen as I was nearing the hotel and that put everything into a dark perspective.

We have nothing but praise for the Hotel Berna. We stayed 3 nights while visiting Milan as part of a three week visit to Italy. Staff all speak English. Reception staff were exceptionally helpful presenting us with maps, tour options, and hotel information (something that is generally lacking in Italian hotels). The porter was also very helpful with information about the room. The room had tea and coffee making facilities and the non-alcoholic contents of the room minibar were free(juice, water, softdrink) and replenished daily. WIFI is also free. The choice at breakfast was abundant - and coffee and tea were served HOT (the first place we have been in Italy that has served HOT, hot drinks - thank you). The hotel is located 200m from Milan Central station and there are numerous cafes and restaurants close by and a small grocery shop across the road.

My wife and I enjoyed two nights at the Hotel Berna in January 2012. We found the hotel to be well located with just a short walk to a nearby metro station, giving easy access to all the sites of Milan. This well-appointed hotel delivers to both tourists and business people, of whom we saw many at breakfast. Our room was quiet and comfortable, with good bathroom facilities. We had some difficulties with the television set, but these things happen in large hotels. The breakfast was the best we had in on our Italian trip, featuring a full range from bacon and eggs right through to every healthy option you could think of. Staff were welcoming, courteous and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Internet facilities, including computers in a room off the foyer, made our travel easier. Juice, mineral water and coffee/tea was available in a very comfortable room off the foyer. The parking attendants were very kind and efficient and had our car parked and retrieved right on time and quickly. This is a very nice hotel, with touches of prestige in a nice neighbourhood in Milan.

A bit pricy but totally worth it. We had many many pillows to choose from to try. They left chocolates on our pillows each day! Wifi is totally free in the comfort of your room. I remember the website said we had to pay for kettle but we were pleasantly surprised to find one clean new kettle in our room. Our room had a huge toilet with very good heater. The staffs were all very patient with us. We asked to pack breakfast as we checked out at 6am and they gladly agreed. Breakfast when eaten inhouse was awesome. You can order caps or latte from the service staffs. They have hot choc too. Eggs were awesome. Only draw back is that they have real tiny lifts.

This hotel is 5 min walk from Stazione Centrale (airport bus arrives & leaves from Centrale) and approximately 40 min to main shopping area & Duomo (or there is the Metro). It is a big hotel, but has personalised service (including your own preference page, which was emailed to me after I booked). The staff are pleasant & helpful, the single room was spacious & had a king single bed, the bathroom is spacious. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and I often noticed customers being welcomed back to the hotel. I would definitely stay here again. I didn't notice any clients with children, so can't comment on suitability for families.

This is a gem of a hotel, conveniently located near the central train station. While convenient, the location is the least appealing of its attributes; the neighborhood is deserted at night. But this is an extremely elegant hotel that seems to attract an international clientele. The staff was extraordinarily attentive, professional, and friendly. I don't think I've ever received such concern for my preferences (from pillows to how to stock the minibar) and interest in my feedback from a hotel, in any price range or country. I highly recommend this hotel, especially if you want to be near the train station.

The staff were so welcoming on our arrival- we even had an email message from them 2 days before our book in date. On European standards this hotel was wonderful- we have just spent 4 weeks in France/Italy and believe me this was so much better than the majority of hotels booked through our tour company. Room excellent, bathroom new and spacious on European standards, free wifi and the breakfast was one of the best we had- a great deal of choice. It was the first timw we had stayed there and would definitely recommend it to other travellers, especially considering its proximity to Milan rail station- we walked with our bags to hotel(once we worked out which exit to use from the station! A wide range of people were at the hotel-many different nationalities, families with babies/young children, middle aged couples such as ourselves.Probably too small to suit a large group.

We chose Hotel Berna because of the good reviews on TripAdvisor, and they are justified. Despite the proximity to the central station (which is very convenient), many of the rooms are very quiet, and the staff are unusually friendly and helpful. If you don't have to leave very early in the morning, make sure to try out the breakfast at the hotel, which is fantastic: fresh juices, fruit, and a huge array of hot and cold food. Hotel breakfasts are rarely worth the extra charge, but this one is definitely an exception.

We had an excellent stay at this hotel. It was a little more than we had been paying for other hotels on the trip, but the value for the additional money was well worth it. The breakfast option is worth it too. By far, the hotel offered the nicest breakfast of any we had on the trip. Internet access worked well. Staff was very professional and welcoming. Room had a safe and a refrigerator. We had a little difficulty finding the hotel after we exited the train station, but we learned that we need to write and obtain good directions before we leave home -- and print them out! We'd stay at the hotel again without question. Highly recommend. We chose to walk to the Duomo and to the Castello; however, there is a metro stop on the block.

One positive that I can say is that it is near the train station. I am glad that I did not stay at Hotel Berna on the tail end of the trip as I was able to find a different hotel in Milan in a different area that offered more spacious rooms, cleaner and larger bathroom, more service, better breakfast in a nicer location. It's difficult to imagine that they were both 4-star hotels. I felt very claustrophobic in our Berna room. Our stay was less than a day so it didn't matter too much. I think that this is much closer to a 3-star hotel than a 4-star. the other 4-star hotels in Italy were much nicer and the staff were much more helpful. I would not be returning to this hotel again.

I received a very good rate of 77 euros (with breakfast) for the night I booked via Venere and then due to BA strike needed to add an additional night, which was charged at 105 euros (without breakfast--a much higher rate than that through Venere. This might be because the rate changed during the week.

Excellent place to stay at both for short and long time. Excellent location? friendly staff. However there was a leak in the bath, so we needed to use our towels to mop the floor, otherwise it would have been a little floody. Service was great, breakfast excellent!

We were a group of friends, 3 couples, on our first visit to Milan. We stayed at the Hotel Berna on the strength of the reviews on Venere.com. We found every aspect of the the hotel to be as advertised. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff was professional, helpful and friendly. We would definitely recommend the Hotel Berna and hope to return in the future.

I loved this hotel: welcoming and very courteous staff, spotless and quiet room, spacious bathroom, most excellent breakfast buffet, easy walk to Milano Centrale station, and great weekend rate. The only drawback is that the neighborhood is a little dead at night. Nevertheless, I recommend it highly.

Comfortable, friendly business hotel near the central train station that is very convenient for day trips from Milan. Nice amenities in room (30" HD flat screen tv, free beverages), free computer access, and a lavish breakfast. Metro stop is half a block away. Area is not good for fine dining. Parking is expensive at Eu 18 a day.

When we came to check in our rooms were not ready. We had a tour booked so we left to go to the tour at 2:00. When we got back at 6:30 we got our rooms. They were all smoking rooms. WE had requested non smoking rooms. They said they were all gone and nothing was available. Will not stay there again. The room smelled horrible.

Stayed 2 nights. Great hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff who spoke good English. Very good location close to airport transport and train station. Great extras such as complimentary mini bar (excluding alcohol beverages) which is topped up every day, and guest area with coffee, tea and cakes. It was recommended to us by friends and we would happily recommend to our friends.

The Berna was a great choice for Milan, we had no trouble finding it and its close proximity to Centrale Train station meant that the rest of Milan was within easy reach. The rooms were average size but adequately furnished with a good size bathroom. There are quite a number of nice restaurants within short walking distance to eat in of an evening, just ask at the desk and the breakfast at the hotel was very nice, plenty of choices for all tastes. Staff were very helpful and we would stay here again if ever we are in Milan.

The service was outstanding. The breakfast is the best I have ever had in a hotel in Europe. The location is very convenient, even if the surroundings are not particularly attractive. I can recommend this hotel without any reservation. The room was small, but well laid out and served my needs perfectly. The complimentary mini-bar service is a very nice gesture.

Conveniently located for Centrale station (so a bit of a walk to the town center). My single room was a little on the small side given the cost, and a little noisy (perhaps inevitable given the location). Breakfast was good, though.

The hotel was perfect for our needs as mother and daughter away for a long weekend. The hotel is of a very good standard and excellently positioned near Central Station and good transport links. We like to walk and found that the centre including the opera house etc was a walkable distance but we did get the tram a couple of times and taxis back at night. I would highly recommend this hotel as the staff are very helpful and pleasant.

Exceptionally handy for those arriving by train or by airport bus. Front desk is competent and polite, and generous with the initial free Internet time. Rooms are small but well laid out; the street gets flakier by the year but is well lit. Highly recommend the Berna for price-quality ratio and politeness of staff.

The wireless internet was spotty. The location is close to the central train station and there is some life around the hotel but most is located towards the Duomo. It is very quiet at night being a mostly business district area. Transportation is very accessible via the central station which is a short 2 minute walk.

We thought the hotel was good value for money, for Milan. The staff were excellent, providing good service. There was a free mini bar(non alcoholic)which was welcome as were the tea and coffee facilities. Excellent location close to station but in a good area. Will definitely return for our next trip to Milan.

Very convenient location - just a few minutes on foot to metro, tram and train. Friendly staff. I arrived quite early, but was allowed to check in right away without any drama. I got a single standard room - it's a bit small, but good enough if you just need a place to sleep (Milan is a wonderful city - you are not supposed to stay in the hotel too much!) I was amused by the shower cubicle, which was tiny even for a petit person like me (the bathroom as a whole was OK though). The breakfast was quite abundant.

todo estupendo! El personal muy amable, alguno de ellos hablaba un perfecto español, nos llevaron a unas habitaciones de un nivel superior al mismo precio. El comedor pequeño, pero el desayuno muy variado. Los que hablan mal del hotel es que no han viajado mucho, pues la relación calidad-precio es excelente. El mini-bar gratis, aunque sea un agua o un refresco no lo había visto en mi vida. La ubicación muy buena, pues está muy cerca de la estación central y por la noche, hay la distancia justa para no tener el mismo ambiente que en los aledaños de la misma. La única pega es que había obras en la calle y por la mañana había mucho ruido. Pero sin duda, la próxima vez que viaje a Milán me quedo en este hotel.

When we arrived there was a smell of sewage in the bathroom but the second day it was gone. Also, the room had not been properly ventilated and it was a bit smaller than we expected. Besides these issues, everything else was perfect: great service from staff, 30 minutes of free Internet access, and a huge breakfast.

Great location, very close to main train station and metro. Buses run from both airports to station. Local area built up and not very pretty but you can't have convenience and rural charm. Hotel top class, all the staff were helpful and pleasant. Rooms clean, wide choice at breakfast inc. scrambled egg, bacon, cereal, fruit, cake, croissants. Bar a bit pricey but includes complimentary snacks. Free coffee and 30 min. internet access in lobby. Reasonable local restaurants. 10 people in my group and all very happy.
