We booked the Auriga at the start of June as we were attending a wedding in Milan. We had friends staying in the Stazione hotel next door (as an aside they rated that one quite poorly, more like a youth hostel). The Auriga is very centrally located near to the interesting central station which is an attraction in itself. The hotel decor is…ummm…interesting! It is a little circus-like, you expect the waiter to be dressed in a harlequin outfit to match the surroundings! Red/yellow/blue, mirrors and unnecessary pillars and hanging material like a tent, all give a rather surreal effect. However my main positives were that the room was spacious, a comfy bed, a nice balcony, and the central location (not a particularly nice area though it has to be said).
My main negatives though were the mixed staff attitudes to helping staff, the revolting smell of smoke that permeated the entire room for 2 out of our nights (apparently if you book a balcony room in this hotel this equates to a smokers room so "what do you expect?"), and the slightly claustrophobic colour scheme.
However, overall the experience was fairly positive and by day 3 we appreciated the large room with seating area and balcony that our friends came to sit on with us as their hotel had nothing nearly as nice. It was actually fairly good value too as a 4* in comparison with the Stazione 2* prices.
