In Milan, we enjoyed staying at Antica Locanda `Leonardo near Cadorna Station and “ The Last Supper.’ Set back behind large gates, quiet , garden in rear.
In Rome we like Palazzo Navona, a modern design hotel inside an old palazzo, great location.

I always stay at Hotel Bernina in Milan near the central train station. In Rome, I stay at Hotel Stella near Termini station. Both are clean, safe, convenient and affordable.

Just a slight spelling change - Hotel Berna is near the Milan Central train station and recommended often on the forum. Their customer service is impeccable, and the breakfast buffet has wonderful variety! I will be staying there again this year.

I booked 4 nights at the Hotel Berna last week for March 14-18, 2020 The non-refundable discounted rate varied by the day. Before tax daily rate varied from $104.56 to $220.29 USD. (Expedia converts to USD at essentially the Interbank rate for prepaid. Exchange rate was about $1.11 USD/EUR.)

Room Price $726.88
4 nights $165.20 avg./night
3/14/2020 $115.67
3/15/2020 $104.56
3/16/2020 $220.29
3/17/2020 $220.29
Taxes & Fees $66.07
Hotel collects 40 EUR not included in the above.

Just wondering if there is a Milan event March 16-17.

We were on the Best of Rome tour this year and stayed at the Lancelot. Since we had an entire week I think RS Tours go the extra mile to see to it that the hotel is a good one. We loved our stay-great location, family run, a few blocks from major sites. On the way home from Sicily before our flight from FCO (we did back to back tours) we stayed a night at the Hotel San Carlo. Very nice small hotel near the Spanish Steps. I would return to either.

A couple of years ago we spent about 4 or 5 days in Milan, and stayed at the Lancaster. The rate for a double room was €69 (for a Sunday night) to €99. That included breakfast, and the hotel had air conditioning and an elevator. The staff was wonderful.

Our "go to" hotel in Rome is the Aberdeen, another one that RS tours use. Good breakfast, friendly staff, a/c, and walking distance to most places you're likely to want to go. I don't know if it had an elevator. There's also a nice library/computer room. We're booked into the Aberdeen for next spring/summer, at €127.50.

Be carefully. Probably Spam. It is the weekend.

Hi Marshall,
We have been to Rome several times and our favorite hotel location is the Termini. That said, we are returning next Fall for a 2 night stay prior to an extended visit to Sicily. We decided to book a stay at Hotel Due Torri based on positive reviews on this Forum, and We wanted a central location, free cancellation policy, quiet street, breakfast included and walking distance to the Pantheon, and other major sites.
**As a side note, their nearby sister hotel is "Hotel Fontanella Borghese."

We have stayed several times at Hotel Due Torri and found the location to be excellent. The only thing the hotel is lacking is a roof top terrace. There are lots of good restaurants nearby which you would not find near the Termini.
