Was there for a big event. The RAI is easy to find, has good transportation methods, and there's easy to find your way inside.

Outside of the center, but well served by the Metro and trains, this is the big convention center, surrounded by a forest of high-rise office buildings. Not charming but functional.

I recomend you the Holiday Inn Hotel from the Central Station. It's not close to the RAI but It's very well comunicated by public transport and it gives you the opportunity to discover the city center.
