Bottom Line

Best Western Plus Hotel Galles is an upper-middle-range property with more to offer than the average chain hotel in Milan. The hotel retains much of its original 19th-century palace architecture with modern renovations that include a chic rooftop restaurant with panoramic views of Milan. The on-site fitness center is free for all guests to use and breakfast is included in the rates. Rooms are decorated in the classic style and some have beautiful veranda-style balconies; some guests have complained of noise carrying from the street. The nearby Lima Metro Station takes passengers to the city center Duomo Cathedral in just four stops, while world famous Corso Buenos Aires is just outside of the hotel's topiary lined front doors.

Oyster Hotel Review

Best Western Plus Hotel Galles

Scene

Six-story chain hotel with 19th-century architecture

The scene at Best Western Plus Hotel Galles is friendly and surprisingly sophisticated considering the brand's reputation stateside. Business travelers and international tourists enjoy relaxing on the rooftop with an apertif under the sun with views of the Duomo in the distance. The overall vibe is one of elegance. Indoors, the lobby includes overstuffed brown leather sofas and framed maps. The overall vibe isn't necessarily luxe, but it's refined and calm, which many couples and business travelers seem to appreciate.

Location

Next to Lima Metro Station

The hotel is located in a strategic position directly next to Lima Metro Station and Corso Buenos Aires, one of the best shopping streets in Milan. Central Station is just a few minutes walk from the hotel.The red line of the Metro arrives at the Milan Fair in just 40 minutes so the hotel is also a convenient base for business travelers. The surrounding neighborhood includes a wide variety of restaurants, shops, pizzerias, and espresso joints. Parking is scarce and requires a reservation in advance; expect to pay for it. Rental bikes are available just across the street from the hotel.

Bottles of products are mounted to the walls, as are hairdryers. Upgrade to a suite for bathrobes. Some guests have complained of street noise in certain rooms.
