“A very competent hotel, looked after us very well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2011

Room was small but well designed. Bathroom was small with absolutely nowhere to put your stuff. The shower system (three faucets!) needed a PhD to operate ~ umph! A great double room for one person! Good sleep.
Great support from the front desk which was appreciated. Secure parking, OK for pets and good but paid internet. Very average breakfast.
Location is in a questionable area ~ or perhaps this is Italian cities in general?
Good metro connections to the main tourist areas.

Room Tip: In European cities ask for a rear facing room

Good points:
Bar full of free snacks from late afternoon onwards
Good location, tube station just a few stops away from the centre of Milan.
Free WLAN
Really cool shower with light show :)
Nice staff
Awesome coffee for breakfast
Free parking
Minus points:
The rooms are bit small, especially with a third bed for a kid.
The toilet design is a bit,ahem trendy, but not very practicable
No restaurant (mmmmh this is supposed to be a 4* hotel)
Breakfast was average at best

Overall ok to stay

Stayed here one night. Was stuck in Milan due to travel issues (volacano) so our planned hotel was book so we swtiched here for one night.

Pros
Great location, walking distance to a few resturants, easy to hop on the metro to get around Milan
Clean
Staff was OK, not rude but not incredibly helpful
Breakfast included. Similiar to other hotels, decent pastries.
Free wifi (need to get a log in at the check in desk every 24 hours)

Cons
Small rooms, small bathroom, small beds

Notes:
Closest metro stop in de angeli about two blocks away
Room keys are huge, leave it at the front desk before venturing out

I had to stay here for 1 night in December whilst on a business trip. It's a 4 star hotel and looks 4star on the surface....but that's it!! Upon arrival, the sole receptionist was on the telephone and continued her conversation for a good 5 minutes whilst I stood there waiting. Then when she finally served me there was no apology for the wait, she was rude and abrupt and when I asked questions, acted as though I was the most annoying person in the world! Then, the room. It was ok - spacious enough, comfortable enough - except for the heating! It was so hot and no matter what I did, I couldn't turn the heating down. The bed was hard - personally, not to my taste. But the biggest thing for me was that the walls were absolutely paper thin. At 4.30am, I could hear the TV in the next room as clearly as if it were on in my room - and I was wearing ear plugs! Also, and this is just an annoyance -no tea or coffee making facilities in the room. I know lots of hotels don't do this, but it really makes a difference when they do. Especially when you are waking up at 5am, room service is not 24 hours and hasn't started yet but you need something to kickstart your day! I wouldn't stay here again.

We arrived to this hotel very early in the morning, straight from the airport... the very lovely staff allowed us to check in early. The room was nice, but dated. We had problems with our bathroom, as it would leak when you had a shower, but the staff were very nice in mopping up the flood for us.
The location wasnt too bad, a few metro stops from the duomo... but was still a bit of hassle at nights.
all in all, would stay there if you get a good deal...

Great service! The staff at the front desk were very accomodating. Local restaurants are pretty good. Very clean and renovated, the bathroom is nice with an awesome shower. Breakfast buffet is great and there is a great view from the top floor. Most cab rides are 10 to 20 euros away to shopping and the duomo, but the metro is just around the corner for 1 Euro. Internet WIFI is sketchy, didn't work for me or my friend, but did for others I know.

Overall not a bad stay and I would stay again!
