I didn't choose this hotel...it was the official hotel for parents of ice skaters participating in the Junior World Ice Skating Chamiponship. The negative experience started from the moment of booking...it took 4 days of phone calls from US to Italy just to get an email confirmation of booking the hotel. The reservation specifically said Family Room for 3 with queen bed and sofa bed. The fee was also charged for 3 occupants...however all rooms are the same in this hotel. Meaning its like a beehive of "cells" that are aproximately 10 x 11 feet of living space, regardless of the amount of occupants. Our bed was smaller than double and my daughter slept on a cot with a 3 inch foam mattress. There's no closet or enough room to unpack clothes for 3 occupants. The hand held shower was leaking providing minimal flow of water wich was barely hot even though thermostat showed 42C. Most interesting that if you arrive on Saturday or Sunday the restaurant in the hotel is not open...you can get a delivery from the local pizzeria. The closest transportation is 10 min ride by taxi to the nearest subway stop...beware that the taxi meter starts running the moment its called...so sometimes the taxi would come in with 18 Euro before you used its services. Hotel provides "free" shuttle in the morning and in the evening to the train station however last shuttle was at 7PM. Please note that not one restaurant is open in Milan for dinner earlier than 7 which absolutely defeats the purpose of a free shuttle. After 3 days in this hell hole which is advertized as a 4 star hotel we simply moved to another hotel. This property is a motel at best with Ikea like furniture.
