Nice hotel, nothing really wrong with this hotel. But, we stayed here the last night of our 2-weeks in Italy, and the other hotels had spoiled us considerably before we got here!
The good: location. Pretty easy to get to from the train station on a tram (could walk it, but even for folks who walk a lot, as do we, doing this while tired and with all luggage would have been tough). Very easy to subway for sites such as Duomo and The Last Supper painting. Comfortable, fairly elegant room. Nice deli-type spot across street, great gelato near as well.
Bad: no great charm. A large, corporately owned hotel, and it feels that way. We asked for dinner reservation suggestions, and asked specifically for "the small little spots that the tourists skip but locals hang out." True to large corporate hotel feel, we got the over-priced touristy restaurant.
Caveat: Milan is a large, industrial city, which is not our favorite thing. We loved the rustic charm of Tuscany, and the quiet serenity of Le Grazie and Portovenere, as well as the charm of Venice and Florence. Milan had none of that. So, any review of Diana Majestic is slightly skewed by our acute realization that we were a bit like fish out of water. However, 24 hours in Milan is a wonderful idea, so that you can see The Last Supper and spend 3-30 hours at the Duoma, which is a never-ending source of visual and sensory overload.
