Our trip consist of an aggressive backpacking schedule. Most of our accommodations were B&Bs and apartments with the exception of one night in Milan where we stayed here. Once we exited the Milan Centrale Station, we walked about 2-3 minutes to the hotel. You can see the station from the hotel. We didn't feel unsafe at all. We loved the amenities and the service that a hotel has to offer. On arrival, the front desk was very friendly and upgraded our room to a deluxe room. The rooms were well-equipped and design was very modern. I loved the rain shower and surround sound (even in the bathroom). The beds were clean and the hallways didn't smell at all. The next morning we had breakfast in the lobby area. Scrumptious variety of cereal, bread, pastries, etc. were served till 10am. By far the best stay of our entire backpacking experience!

We stayed at Star Hotel Echo for 2 nights in a Deluxe room in May this year. The room was very nice, modern furniture, a very big bathroom, comfortable bed... Breakfast was ok, keep your expectations low... Being right next to the Central Train Station, although not being a very nice neighbourhood, is very practical in terms of travel to and from Malpensa. There are several shuttle bus options available with reasonable fares. And once you get oriented with the subway system, it is 2-3 stops to famous shopping districts of Milan... I think it was good value for money....

We had just one night in Milan before catching a train to Venice. E.c.h.o. is perfect for its location close to Central Station. It is beautifully appointed and stylish. The bathroom was the biggest we've ever had in an Italian hotel. Free wi-fi and a good breakfast was included in our very reasonable rate. There are several good restaurants close by and it is within walking distance of the city.

This hotel is very close to Milan Centrale, but you would never know it. All the rooms are sound-proofed. The staff was friendly and helpful. They recommended a restaurant close by and the food was good. We had booked 2 rooms and they put us next to each other. The Jr. Suite was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the breakfast. This hotel is wonderfully modern. I would definitely stay here again.

This is minor, but our suite was for 3 people and they only gave us everything for 2 people (towels, cups, Wi-Fi passcode). We alerted them about this and they promptly took care of it.

We were touring around a number of different areas by train therefore the proximity to the station was important to us. Although this was advertised as being close we were very pleasantly surprised when we stepped out of the station to see it right across the road! There was an enhanced price for the convenience of location. Rooms very modern; breakfast had wide variety; pillow options available. Staff very helpful. I left a pair of shoes and there was no trouble in getting them later on. Cocktails were expensive at 13 EUR, but were nice! Free wifi in lobby.

We've been in this hotel because we wanted to go to a concert in the San Siro Stadion beginning of June.

Since the hotel is just a short walk from the main station it is very easy to find and you don't need a taxi. It just took us a few minutes to check in and then we got the key to our room which was located on the 5th floor. The room was very nice with a wodden floor, a lot of space, plenty of space for clothes, TV and a bathroom which had enough space for the both of us.

The breakfast room was on the ground floor next to the bar. You could get there a continental breakfast with diff. kinds of bread, jam, butter, honey, juice fruits, water still/sparkling, eggs etc. On the 2 mornings we ate there, where many asian people. But beside that also guests from other european countries (Finland, England, Switzerland etc.).

The hotel itself is very modern and has a "green" touch (from an ecological point of view), which I like very much.

The service and everything there was realy perfect. If I have to mention something negativ it would only be the fact that I didn't like that the butter, jam etc. was not offered in a "open style (everything was wrapped seperately and therefore you had a lot of waste at the end). For me - that doesn't fit with the green touch they give themselves.
But as I said, beside that everything else was perfect and we had nothing to complain. So, therefore, I can recommend the hotel to everyone who is looking for a hotel
- close to the main station
- close to a taxi pick up
- close to the undergroundtrains
- which is modern and not too elegant but also with a very hip lobby

Room Tip: 5th floor was perfect for us
