Peaceful and charming hotel in the middle of the bustling Navigli.

Breakfast, decor, quiet room, staff all 10 out of 10

The Navigli is cute but not as convenient for my work as I would have liked and the bar scene and tourist traps on the other side of the canal were below average.

Location, features and space.

We could not lower the heat enough and having a window open was quite noisy.

Location, place, everything

Beautifully styled accommodation - we loved the seating areas beside the restaurant

It does show signs of wear and tear

Absolutely loved Maison Borella!

One of the best hotels we've spent time in. It is so charming/beautiful. Phenomenal restaurant on site, fantastic part of Milan and interesting neighborhood on the canal. Will absolutely recommend and stay at Maison Borella again!

It's in the heart of an entertainment district. We actually really enjoyed that, but just know that it can be on the loud side into the night.

Little light in the room

Great location.

Breakfast was good, would have like to see more fruit. They has a basket of whole fruit that was uncut and looking a little old.

Air conditioning had been turned off and it was hot.

Beautiful hotel in a stunning location.

Our room was enormous, beautifully decorated & in a peaceful, pretty courtyard footsteps from the canal area that was buzzing at night with bars & restaurants. Staff were beyond helpful.

No cups/ mugs on coffee tray. If you wanted a 2nd+ hot drink at breakfast you had to pay 3€!

The hotel was picturesque. The staff was professional and charming. They graciously answered questions before we arrived.Breakfast was delicious and unhurried. The room had great air conditioning the balcony was a special treat. Fine appointments.

the lighting in the bedroom could be brighter. The shops and restaurants are open quits late so if you have trouble sleeping it could be annoying. We enjoyed hearing the happy commotion.


15 October 2023


Loved the location and the view of the canal and all of the activity outside. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast and the restaurant for dinner are both delicious. We come from NYC, and we like the noise at night - if you need quiet - do not book that front room. Pack light if you're walking from the parking area.

All good


13 October 2023

Very quaint, charming place.

The staff, location, and breakfast was excellent. If you get the canal view, you will hear the excitement of the people at night.

We loved everything about Maisonette Borella - couldn’t have asked for a better end to a 12 day trip through Italy.

Everything - cleanliness, size of room, reception staff, breakfast, and perfect location.

Super staff - very helpful Wonderful breakfast Great facilities

A little tricky to arrive at and leave from - taxi couldn't get out of the road when we left and we almost missed the train.


28 September 2023

The best vacation experience thanks to this most elegant place. The restaurant is also fabulous.

Dream come true. Absolutely first class and gorgeously elegant.

There is NOTHING I didn’t like about the property.


15 September 2023

We would definitely recommend this hotel!

The property was beautiful! The ambiance and decor were very nice. All of the staff made us feel at home and were very helpful! Location good and close to Metro to get to Duomo, etc. The restaurant is fantastic! Rooms were clean.

We didn’t realize how loud it would be late into the night from all the partying on the canal. It was crazy but it grew on us after the first night and was okay.


15 September 2023

good address in Milan

- good lively location - rooms rather simple but very comfortable and spotless clean - very good phonic isolation, especially for the rooms facing the canal - VERY good restaurant serving classic Italian dishes on site. The restaurant staff was really great - the 2 Simone were just amazing. - good value and will stay here again

- breakfast was very basic, even for Italian standards. Coffee was disappointing.


13 September 2023


The staff was very polite, proffesional and helpful. The location was really nice. The hotel's restaurant was excellent. The room was quiet, spacious and clean. Really big bed and big bathroom as well.

The wi-fi connection.


12 September 2023


The location is fantastic 👌 close to the center, we walked to Duomo and back one day. The rest we took metro, that was very near by.

We had an evening flight, it would have been great to have a possibility to take a shower after +32 heat and a day in the city.


9 September 2023

Very good

Central, clean, great location, large room

Canal view window was broken and unable to open, access door was locked over night leaving us unable to leave room in early morning
