“Would never ever book this hotel again!”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

This hotel is terrible. The room we got reeked of sigarettes. The shower had mould on it. The worst part was the fact that the bathroom was so small that you could hardly move without touching the wall in the shower, which I find disgusting given the state of bad hygiena in this hotel.Getting out of the shower without touching the bidet (in which I saw someone elses pubic hair on arrival) or the sink was almost impossible . The bed matress was so uncomortable I got a pain in my back. The room maid didn't bother to clean the shower but tossed all my (including vulnerable suede) shoes all together in a bag. The only positieve thing I can say about this hotel is that the receptionist was friendly and helpful.
I would not recommend ANYONE to go to this hotel EVER unless you enjoy a complete lack of comfort and hygiena. And for 75 euros a night, I'm sure you can find a better place for the money, even in Milan.

Given that our stay coincided with Milan Design week the rate charged by the hotel was reasonable - on the basis that it was the lowest cost option in the city at £150 for one night
Budgetplaces.com online booking service only gave the option of single room or twin beds and since I was travelling with my wife I selected the latter. On arrival the owner was kind enough to arrange for a double bed. He also threw in breakfast for us both which was very considerate.
This is an old fashioned place and the lack of carpets make sound from other residents echo around the place. We had a room on the second floor but could easily here conversations going on in reception on the ground floor
So don't come expecting the Ritz but be prepared for a warm and genuine welcome from the owner. The breakfast is typically continental but again generous. If you don't see what you want on offer then ask as the owner is keen to please.
I should add that the place is a pleasant walk from the bustling centre of Milan - Try the cake & coffee shop on the corner by the San Giovanni. A lovely slice of authentic Italy.

Paid for bed and breakfast and was told breakfast was between 7am and 10am. Went down to reception at 7.30am, where the three tables with chairs for breakfast was situated, to be told that there was no breakfast today and that the coffee machine was broken. Was directed to a nearby cafe. No refund of breakfast money. Not very good.
