Hotel is ideally located Via dell'Orso, a stone away from La Scala and The Duomo square and in the heart of Milan's fashion and design district (via Brera, via Solferino...).
It is not a cheap hotel but in Milan is an expensive city when it comes to hotel and you also pay for the location.
We were with my wife in a superior room, whose dimension are very reasonable, overlooking the inside yard, hence very quite (even though a little bit dark, even though we were on the 3rd floor). I would advise not to book a room which is on the street as via dell'orso can be very noisy at night, especially during the week-ends (I have lived 5 years in Milan in the past in the area).
Rooms are decently equipped (however no free Wifi access which is a shame as it is now standard in most hotels now) and the bed is very comfortable.
The personnel is very kind and helpful. The breakfast (included in the price) compares very well to the standard italian hotels, and offers a continental as well as UK breakfast. The breakfast room is pretty small (10 tables max.) so I guess that when the hotel is full it is difficult to have a table immediately at rush hours (it was not the case when I stayed as it was during a week-end, jut before the Fashion week).
Overall, the hotel is very nice and I would definitely recommend it.
