“21st Century Excellence”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

Modern and immaculate, with courteous service catering to individual requests, this hotel is conveniently close to the central railway station. Our request for preplanned room service due to a late arrival was looked after perfectly, and a late dinner in the bar area after a delayed return from La Scala was produced without fuss. The breakfasts were super, and the quiet room and the comfortable beds were the tops.

We found the convenience of the hotel, just 200m across the roads from Centrale Station as its main factor. We flew into Milan Malpensa, took a Malpensa Express train from the airport to Centrale (one hour) and walked into the hotel. On the way back we took a bus, same place, much cheaper, more scenic!

The hotel is recently redecorated and this added to the freshness and cleanliness of the hotel. The lobby and breakfast areas were bright, smelt great (lemongrass) and clean/tidy.

The rooms are excellent, well-spacious and equipped. If you are green conscious, as we are, then the LED lighting, temp controlled bathroom etc really made for a good hotel.

We only wished to use the hotel for overnight (2 no) and used the city's excellent Metro and Tram service to access the sights and attractions in the central area / old town, via Corsa Venezia / Buenos Aires.

There were plenty of resturants in walking distance of the hotel, so we cant comment on the food. Breakfast was continental style (the cooked breakfast was not "English" or "American" i.e. only bacon (sliced parma ham), sausage (frankfurter type) and egg (scrambled sweet) so if you dont like the sound of that, dont take...the rest of the food was fresh, healthy and plentiful.

We would come back to this hotel, simply because of its good location and fresh clean condition.

Room Tip: As for a room on a balcony. That also seemed to be on the hotel's "back side" quieter...

This modern hotel is across the road from from the magnificent Stazione Centrale in Milan. Simply exit by the LHS from the station (or the RHS facing the front of the station) and look up and across the road and carpark. You will see the sign. We loved our stay in a modern, very comfortable room with a luxurious bathroom and huge KB. The staff were very helpful with our requests for assistance with a new SIM card and a wonderful suggestion for a local restaurant for dinner. Breakfast next morning was very good. We only wished we had more time here. The subway is close by and we managed a comfortable walk back from the city centre via many old and interesting streets. I would recommend this hotel for a stay in Milan, especially if you are using the trains for your trip. Trains and buses connect with Milan Malpensa airport from the station.

This is a great hotel to stay in in Milan, especially if you're taking the train or coming from the airport. It's stylish, clean and comfortable, and located directly across from the Milan train station. It's easily accessible from the airports if you take an airport bus that drops you at the train station. I was a big fan of the room service menu at this hotel - the restaurant is absolutely delicious. Breakfast in the morning was included in my rate and it had a wide range of options. The wi-fi was fast, but the connection process was annoying. The hotel employees were very helpful and managed to grant all of my requests. I would definitely stay at this hotel again - the area may not have been the prettiest, but you can't beat the price, convenience of location, decor and comfort.

Stayed here with my girlfriend just before Christmas, based on the fact I had noticed from reviews that it had recently undergone refurbishment and was reasonably priced.

Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised, the lobby area is extremely well maintained and modern, this theme continued when we were shown to our room - extremely nice, stylish, modern room. I decided to take a shower shortly afterwards and noticed that the water wasn't draining properly, and our bathroom flooded. I phoned reception to let them know and the attendant made his way to our room, he promptly said it's not leaking and went away, so I decided to try again and it continued to leak, eventually, after much convincing the attendant believed me in the fact the shower was leaking and offered to move me and my girlfriend to a different room, the room he tried to move us too was much, much smaller, and I immediately said no, after much convincing and viewing a number of less adequate rooms, we were given a room that was on par with our initial booking, after a long flight and feeling quite tired I didn't expect to have to go through all these issues upon arrival.

Breakfast was also poor, a lack of choice with alot of processed products, especially the hot food, which consisted of chewy bacon, processed sausages and strange scrambled egg.

Aside from these two downsides, the hotel was actually really nice, its extremely modern, is in a brilliant location as the central station is opposite, with buses to the airport also close by. The staff were friendly and knowledgable about the local area and the room was extremely stylish and comfortable.

I would stay here again, I just wouldn't expect to have a leaking shower next time!

This is one of the better hotel values in Milan. It's a relatively new hotel with comfortable rooms and bedding, modern and tasteful design. It's a good choice for business and leisure, with solid amenities and a very good breakfast that's included in the room rate. Clientele is generally of the smart set.

The area around the central train station (where the hotel is located) isn't particularly interesting, but the Duomo and Brera neighborhoods are both less than 10 minutes by can and 3 stops away by subway.

Definitely a good choice if you are looking for a combo of good design and value, and if you plan to be near the central station it's a no-brainer.

The areas around main railway stations are always a bit dodgy, but this is a nice, clean modern hotel. Restaurant food very good - even healthy - and not unreasonably priced. Handy place if like us you are catching trains in and out of Milan daily. Would certainly recommend it and use again.
